The Fortinet Championship betting report's for this weekend's PGA tour event is about as consistent as it gets.
Max Homa, Sahith Theegala and Maverick McNealy are all popular in both betting ticket and handle counts, but the order might surprise you.
We hit up BetMGM for some data on who the sportsbook – and bettors – will be rooting for or against over the weekend.
Let's get into the line movement, liabilities and more.
Fortinet Championship Betting Report
McNealy's the most notable mover at MGM, dropping from +2800 to +2500.
Others have been adjusted, too: Brendan Steele, for example, is down from +5000 to +4000; Rickie Fowler's been chopped from +12500 to +10000.
However, McNealy's in contention — the Stanford product's tied for the fourth-shortest odds to win the Fortinet Championship at BetMGM — which makes his adjustment more impactful.
Highest Ticket, Handle Counts
Theegala's the hot commodity at the shop, generating the top ticket (9.0%) and handle (14.4%) counts.
The California native has been consistent, missing the cut just once over his previous 17 stroke-play matches. His +2800 price tag's tied for the sixth-shortest for the upcoming event.
Following up Theegala in ticket and handle is Homa, who is second in both categories at 7.2% and 10.2%, respectively.
The 31-year-old's +1400 to win the Fortinet Championship, tied with Hideki Matsuyama for the shortest price in the field.
Finally, McNealy's third in both ticket (5.8%) and handle (7.7%) at MGM.
The biggest threats to MGM in the Fortinet Championship are Theegala, Homa and McNealy, in that order.
Our own Jason Sobel previewed the event this week, and one of his favorite outright betting picks is among that trio.
