Underdogs are the favorite public play in all four NFL playoff games this week, so let’s keep that trend going on the PGA Tour.
Here are three dogs for Sony Open third round matchup bets.
Season Record: 11-14-2 (-4.46 units)
All odds as of Saturday morning.
Sungjae Im over Justin Thomas (+200)
Am I really that enthusiastic about picking a rookie over JT? No, but consider these factors: This is one of his first chances to prove himself against an elite player and he’s no slouch, having won Player of the Year on the Web.com Tour last season. At 2-to-1, I’ll take my chances on Im.
