PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. — It was a fun opening day at The Players Championship, with plenty of red numbers on the board. We should see similar conditions on Friday before it gets colder and windier and much tougher on the weekend.

For my favorite second-round matchup bets, I’m preying on a few guys to continue struggling and another to go super-low.

Rickie Fowler over Jordan Spieth by -0.5 (-145)

I hate to pick on Spieth after an opening-round 76 that served as a continuation of his season-long struggles, but it’s hard to see him bouncing back with a low one on Friday. As for Fowler, I do see that kind of number available in the calmer early conditions, which makes this a mouth-watering bet.
