Just about every big name in the golf world is on hand at the PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass this week. Who can blame them? The prize purse for this year’s event is $15 million and the winner will cash a nice check of whatever is left over after taxes on the $2.7 million amount.
Rory McIlroy enters as the favorite, but Brian Blessing is staying away from the reigning champion. Those that have followed Brian’s work for us on BangTheBook Radio or in these BangTheBook YouTube videos know that he likes to go price hunting. He wants to find guys that are further down the board with big numbers in hopes of hitting a big pay day on a guy that exceeds expectations.
Don’t fret, because Brian definitely has some of those for you to consider for this week, but those aren’t the only guys on his list. He actually has his sights set on some of the shorter prices and guys that are not that far behind Rory on the golf betting odds board.
The Florida swing has been a real challenge for the players and things don’t look to get any easier at Innisbrook next week for the Valspar Championship. This is a wide-open event with a talented field and a course that requires a very diverse skill set. With that in mind, this is a great event to bet and Brian Blessing broke it all down for us with his top picks and predictions.
