With Matt Kuchar leading and only two others within a half-dozen strokes, there are limited possibilities as to whom will win the Sony Open on Sunday.

That won’t hinder our options, though. We’ve got many more possibilities within the matchup bets.

Here are my favorite three:

Season Record: 12-16-2 (-4.46 units)
All odds as of Sunday morning.

Chez Reavie over Bryson DeChambeau (+155)

Through three rounds, Reavie has ranked as the top ball-striker in the field and the worst putter. Here’s banking on him rolling in a few more birdies, while BDC could struggle to follow up his 63 from Saturday.

Harris English over Patrick Reed (+167)

Anytime one of Reed’s estranged UGA teammates plays opposite the Masters champion, let’s just say they’re a little extra motivated to beat him. English has posted rounds of 68-68-67 so far, showing some solid consistency.

Marc Leishman over Brandt Snedeker (-140)

I picked Leishman to win prior to the opening round, and even though he’s currently T-5, it still feels like he hasn’t played his best golf.

I expect a low one from the Aussie to win as the favorite in this matchup.
