Maybe you’ve got a busy Friday planned, maybe you just need some extra time to make a decision.

Either way, I’ve got you covered.

Here are three matchup bets for the second round of the Sony Open — none of which start before 6 p.m. ET.

Season Record: 10-12-2 (-3.26 units)
All odds as of Friday morning.


Kelly Kraft (+105) over Jamie Lovemark

6 p.m. ET

During his brief PGA Tour career, Kraft has been hit or miss, without a whole lot of in-between. His history on similar courses suggests this week could be a good one and his opening 68 backed that up. I like him to continue rolling on Friday.

Bryson DeChambeau (-120) over Gary Woodland

6:40 p.m. ET

I’ll be taking BDC in a decent amount of matchups this year, because he’s the type of player who grinds over every shot and keeps battling late in the round. I especially like this one against Woodland, who is presumably still drained from last week’s title run that came up short.

Adam Hadwin (+105) over Jimmy Walker

6:40 p.m. ET

Let’s bank on some positive regression here. Waialae is a good course fit for Hadwin, who surprisingly posted an opening 3-over 73. I expect him to post a low one Friday, potentially rallying to make the cut.
