Odds for Travelers Championship 2022
|Harold Warner III||+6000|
|Si Voo Kim||+7000|
|Charles Howell III||+14000|
|Davie van der Valt||+100000|
This week we have a very strong field for the 2022 Passenger Championship, led by four of the top six ranked players in the world, according to the official world golf rankings, as well as the top four on the FedEx Cup table.
This week, the TPC River Highlands in Connecticut will be one of the shortest courses players will see throughout the year on the PGA TOUR. At less than 6,900 yards, it could be a haven for strikers, although people like Dustin Johnson and Beetle Watson have had great success here.
Our staff have a couple of good weeks, first hitting odds at +450, +120 and -115 for the RBC Canadian Open, and then having Derek Farnsworth nail the big winner Matt Fitzpatrick to +1800 for the US Open.
Before the focus of the golf world (at least on the course) turns to the United Kingdom, take a look at our staff’s best bets for the big station on the TOUR calendar.
2022 Passenger Championship Elections
Davis Riley +4500
Jason Sobel: As you have probably already noticed, he is on the same path as his friend Will Zalatoris and some of the other young 20-year-olds who have progressed in the game, only a year or so behind in the timeline. Maybe less.
Riley’s results in the last six starts suggest a sublime ceiling / floor combination: 31-13-4-13-9-5 – and that doesn’t even include a defeat in the playoffs at the Walspar Championship in March.
It will be a difficult task to take off those big names, but in a small sample, Riley showed a tendency to play his best golf when the birds are available, as it will be this week. I like to try at this price.
Riley is 40-1 at most bookmakers, but you can get it at 45-1 at WinnBet, starting Tuesday night.
Brendan Style – Top 30 (+120)
Chris Murphi: One player who jumped out of the page this week is Brendan Steele. He really fits in with a lot of what I’m looking for this week at the TPC River Highlands, and his game is in trend at the tournament.
Steele finished consecutively among the top 10 in the elite areas at the PGA Championship and Memorial, where he scored better than eight shots with his ball. He will strive to continue that series of hot games in the tournament in which he recorded the top 25 in two of his last three appearances, including the 2020 T6.
It seems that Steele will be a popular game in the DFS space, so I will try to meet him in the betting market. I was a little conservative here with the best choice, but with the plus money, this one really stood still. I will look to add him to the map in its entirety, even up to his long chances of winning at +6500 on the FanDuel list.
Patrick Cantlai +1400
Matt Vincenzi: Patrick Cantlay is all I want from a golfer on the TPC River Highlands. He has a solid overall game and can warm up enough to win tournaments with his pitcher. In the past, we’ve seen golfers do it at The Travelers doing little of it. In his previous four starts on the track, Cantlai did not finish worse than 15th place.
Perhaps the most obvious identifier of Cantlai’s potential victory is his success in designing Pete Die. The 30-year-old is number one in “Strokes Gained: Total on Pete Die Designs”. His team victory earlier this year at the Zurich Classic was also the design of Pete Die in TPC Louisiana.
With the exception of the big championships, in which Cantlai fought for the most part during this moment in his career, he knocked on the door to win. He finished second at the RBC Heritage (also designed by Pete Die) and third at the Memorial Tournament before his 14th at the US Open.
Cantlay famously recorded 60 as an amateur at the TPC River Highlands in 2011. He is a bird producer who should enter the radar on Sunday and be motivated to win another PGA TOUR event.
Patrick Cantlai +1400
Derek Farnsworth: This article on the best bets is full of sharp golf minds, so it feels good to finally contribute to the winner of the US Open. I had Meta Fitzpatrick win without the top five favorites at +1800. It turned out that I could bet on him to win directly with better odds, but I will gladly accept the victory.
This week I’m going to a golfer who has received a lot of criticism for his play in the main games in the last few years. Although his name was never at the top of the list of leaders, Cantlai made a strong weekend to sneak into the top 15.
It has come to a point where it is surprising to see that Cantley is not competing in non-majors. He finished T14 or better in 10 of his last 14 starts on the PGA TOUR with two wins, two seconds, a third and two fourths during that period. He is the best in this area in terms of shots scored per round on the Pete Die tracks, and he finished among the top 15 in this event in all four of his appearances. He has no weaknesses in the game and gives his best on bent / poa greens.
Scottie Scheffler – Top 5, Patrick Cantlai – Top 10 and Xander Schauffele – Top 20 (+2000)
Rob Bolton: I mean, come on. Why do you have to do this to me, FanDuel?
Twenty times the blow for a guy (Scheffler) with four wins and a few seconds in the last ten starts, another guy (Cantlay) with three podiums in the last five, and another (Schaufel) with five consecutive first 20s after coming? Understand that this is an i-proposal, not an or-, but, uh, for the sake of the question, what is your limit for the units invested? # RhetoricalK
Of course, this will not pay off. It’s too obvious. Oh, and I don’t think I’ve come across this yet. (Here, please enter the reverse fantasy / betting analyst.) But hell, they’re fun!
Marc Leishman +5000
Joshua Perry: Leishman was not in the best edition at the US Open, but everything else was in good shape last week on the way to finishing in 14th place.
This was also a good place for him. He achieved his first victory in the PGA TOUR on this track in 2012, and of that result, he has five more top 25.
Brian Harman – Top 10 (+430)
Landon Silinski: Harman looked pretty good last week at The Country Club, made a cut and played well for three rounds before stabbing his toe on Sunday, dropping him to 43rd place. He will probably be back pretty soon this week on one of his favorite courses on the PGA TOUR track.
In 10 starts at the TPC River Highlands since 2012, Harman has succeeded eight times, finishing among the top 10 in four of those starts.
Aside from the brutal missed cut at the Colonial when he was chalk of the week at DFS, Harman has been pretty consistent this season, making 11 of 14 cuts since the calendar switched to 2022. He has shot all the cylinders in his past eight starts or something like that, ranking 16th in this area in total shots scored, 19th in SG: hitting the ball and 38th in SG: throwing in at that time.
Harman will not be nearly as popular this week as he was at the Colonial, but his history at this event is too strong to be ignored. Another top 10 is firmly on the table.
Mito Pereira +5000
Brian Berriman: TPC River Highlands has been a major component of the PGA tour for more than 30 years. Short, but exciting, the schedule requires precision with tee, with players having to move through rough, rough bunkers and water obstacles waiting for any badly hit tee blows.
I’m looking for players who have a combination of out of tee accuracy and a strong wedge game for my betting card this week. Mito Pereira fits that mold.
The 6,841-yard schedule will mean plenty of 125-150-yard approaches, the range in which the Chilean ranks first in the area near the hole in the last 24 rounds. During this same part, Pereira is in sixth place in the number of hits scored: Off-the-Tee and seventh in SG: Approach. For starters, it has hit 64% of its fairways and 70% of its regulated green spaces in the last 12 months.
All these statistics indicate that Pereira has a breakthrough week. Given the missed cut at last week’s US Open, I believe this number is a bit inflated and represents a very high value. The course is set in a way that should put him in many positions to take advantage of his game.
You can still get Pereira at 50-1 on PointsBet, BetRivers and WinnBet from Tuesday night.
