The Outlook

Bradley is a fairly consistent cut-maker in majors, seeing the weekend in 18 of 23 starts, which makes him a solid play in fantasy. But from a betting perspective, I’m just not that interested. He’s one of the worst putters on tour, so even with his elite ball-striking ability, he just doesn’t win. It’s been nearly six years since his last victory. If you’re just dying to bet Bradley for some reason, I’d focus on his top-20 odds, which should be in the +700 range.
