PGA: Lowry Tops Wyndham Championship Odds
FedEx Cup Spots Up for grabs
Wyndham Championship odds have been released for the final regular-season tournament before the FedEx Cup playoffs start.
Headlining the odds is Ireland’s Shane Lowry, who has recorded multiple top-five finishes this year. He is the +1600 favorite and there are only limited chances for betting on PGA Tour left.
Players look to secure a spot in the playoffs, so expect drama on Sunday afternoon.
Favorite Eyes Overdue Win
Lowry is getting close to posting a win after a strong showing at the Open Championship and there is excellent confidence with Wyndham Championship odds.
The Irishman failed to make the U.S. Open cut but bounced back in the Open Championship with a T21 finish. Lowry, who has been vying for victory, put out yet another strong performance and he’s one of the most well-performed golfers in the Wyndham Championship field.
He has three top-five finishes to his credit so far in 2022, including a second-place showing in the Honda Classic and T3 showings at The Master’s Tournament and the RBC Heritage in consecutive weeks.
There is nothing wrong with that form and PGA Tour Wyndham Championship betting markets have taken notice.
Lowry is the lone favorite at +1600 and he should give bettors every chance of cashing.
Kisner Defending Title
Kevin Kisner hasn’t won since taking out the 2021 Wyndham Championship but he won’t care as long as he plays well this week.
The 38-year-old American played well at the Open Championship, so that’s a solid form guide. He was making putts left, right, and center at St. Andrews, which is another good sign.
The Sedgefield Country Club is right up his alley, and despite missing the cut at the Rocket Mortgage Classic last week, playing at a course you have already won at is a huge bonus.
He had to make a pressure putt in the playoff to secure the win, but he has been holing putts throughout his career.
“You can’t take anything for granted and it’s one of the biggest wins of my career so it’s going to be fun to back out there and I’m excited,” Kisner said.
“I knew that I had a pretty good shot at making my putt. It was one of those putts you dream about having, three and a half, four feet, right edge, just get it going, so I wasn’t too consumed with the pressure on my putt.”
Wyndham Championship odds have Kisner at a delicious price of +3300, which should be snapped up quick-smart.
Big Willie Style
Bettors are getting a little frustrated with the lack of winning from Will Zalatoris but we can’t jump off his back.
Although he hasn’t won, Zalatoris has been among the PGA Tour’s most reliable golfers, and his class is unquestionable.
He’s been dangerously close to taking home a major and he generally performs better in the bigger golf competitions. Even though it’s not the biggest competition in the world, the Wyndham Championship is crucial for his FedEx Cup playoff status.
If he can post a good score, he’ll rise in the rankings and that’s important over the coming weeks. While most of the best players in the world are sitting out, Zalatoris could cash in on the opportunity.
The sportsbook has Zalatoris on the second line of betting at +1800 and there is value with those odds. It’s only a matter of time before he wins a tournament and his Wyndham Championship odds are there to be snapped up.
We liked what we saw from Taylor Pendrith at the Rocket Mortgage Classic and is worth following given his juicy Wyndham Championship odds.
The Canadian shot even in the final round and placed T2. He could have won on the PGA Tour for the first time with a better finish but he’ll be happy with the result.
Earlier in the year, he placed T13 at The Players, which was won by Cameron Smith, and T13 at the Barbasol Championship. He’s another player not far off scoring a win and his +3300 odds are generous.
We wouldn’t put him on the same line as Kisner, but we framed Kisner at +2500, so they’re both values picks.Follow us on Twitter
