Honda Classic Betting, DFS Picks: Loading Up on Longshots
The conditions at this week’s Honda Classic promise to be a challenge for players, as the combination of a tough course and windy conditions looms.
But this is good news for bettors and DFS players: Golfers who haven’t found success on easier courses in better conditions — and who are accordingly priced as longshots — may have the skill set to pay off big.
The tough conditions present a bigger-than-usual edge for sharps, which means there are value opportunities aplenty for you, The Action Network reader.
Add in a talented field that includes the likes of Tiger Woods, Sergio Garcia, and Rickie Fowler, and this event has all the ingredients of compelling viewing, betting, and DFS play.
Let’s get to it and break down a field stacked with some great longshot values.
Measuring 7,110 yards for a par 70, PGA National places a premium on positioning the drive rather than just bombing it. Many of the fairways are cut off by water, and those hazards are in play on 13 holes.
Consequently, the long drivers rarely come out on top.
