  • Looking for the best PGA prop betting picks ahead of the 2020 WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational?
  • Our staff has you covered with their four favorite, including Billy Horschel to have a top-20 finish.

The best golfers in the world will head to TPC Southwind in Memphis, Tenn. this week for the 2020 WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational.

With just 78 players in the field and no cut to worry about, there should be plenty of interesting betting opportunities across the board this weekend.

Here are our favorite prop bets for the 2020 WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational:

Jason Sobel

Patrick Reed Top-20 Finish (+150)

Two-thirds of this week’s 78-man field will be out of contention by the weekend. Many of them will mentally check out, ready to move on to next week’s PGA Championship. I want players who tend to grind, even when they can’t win. This idea fits Reed perfectly.

In three of his four made cuts since the restart – at the Charles Schwab, the Travelers and the Memorial – Reed improved his leaderboard standing greatly on the weekend. At Colonial, he was T-35 entering the weekend and finished T-7; at TPC River Highlands, he was T-53 entering the weekend and finished T-24; at the second Muirfield Village event, he was T-64 entering the weekend and finished T-10.

You’re going to need a guy this week who doesn’t mail it in when he’s out of contention and Reed has proven he can be that guy.

Billy Horschel Top-20 Finish (+175)

Horschel was a little short for me to go to him in the outright market, but I do think he has a good chance to play well this week.

The Florida Gator is coming off a pair of top-20 finishes at Muirfield Village and was ninth here last year. Prior to that, Horschel finished inside the top-10 in four of the last five PGA TOUR stops at TPC Southwind.

Bryan Mears

Billy Horschel Top-20 Finish (+175)

I typically don’t love doubling up a pick, but I’ll use the opportunity to emphasize Horschel, who I really love this week.

The dude is playing awesome golf right now with a 13th and seventh in his last two events. The most recent one at the Memorial was particularly impressive. That was a brutal course, and Horschel played well from literally everywhere; he had almost no weaknesses. His ball-striking was amazing, and he was very accurate off-the-tee, which will be important this week.

I’ll definitely take nearly 2/1 on him getting a third straight top-20.

Collin Wilson

Viktor Hovland Top-20 Finish (+120)

After taking a road trip that spanned almost two months and over 60 hours of driving time, Viktor Hovland finally got a little rest by skipping the 3M Open.

Sure, it’ll still take him seven hours to drive from Stillwater to TPC Southwind, but Hovland should be fresh for this event.

Hovland ranks inside the top-20 in ball-striking this season and he’s been even more impressive with his approach, ranking eighth among TOUR players.
