Scheffler Tops Mayakoba Golf Classic Odds

The World Wide Technology Championship Returns

Mayakoba Golf Classic odds are out and the market is headed by Scottie Scheffler, who wants his number-one world ranking back from Rory McIlroy.

However, it’s an open field that includes two-time Mayakoba champion Viktor Hovland. The Norwegian loves playing this course and he’s the biggest threat to the American charge.

Hovland Seeking Triple

Hovland won the Mayakoba Classic in 2020 and 2021, and although his recent form isn’t particularly exciting, he could win it again this week.

The Norwegian superstar finished T21 at the CJ Cup, not too far behind McIlroy, but with only three PGA Tour victories to his name and two of them coming in this particular competition, he needs to start coming up with the goods more frequently.

World Wide Technology Championship betting markets have him on the second line of betting at +1100. Given that he loves playing on this course, it’s a fair price from bookmakers and one worth taking.

Getting off to a good start on Thursday and Friday is imperative to his success and he thinks he can get the job done in style.

Pressure on Scheffler

Scheffler hasn’t been at his best since he become the world’s best player, but now that he’s lost it, he might be able to concentrate again.

Scheffler’s disposition recently hasn’t impressed us, and his performance for T45 at the CJ Cup wasn’t great either. He is a good player, though, so he won’t need to make many changes to be a winning chance and Mayakoba Classic odds suggests he’s the best chance to win.

Scheffler has changed putters, which isn’t always the best thing. However, it could give him temporary confidence.

“I typically don’t like changing equipment at all, but I’ve been using it now for probably two, three weeks,” Scheffler told Golf Digest. “Late in the year I putted what felt like to me pretty poorly, I was really streaky. I was trying a few different things and that’s not really a way to improve when you’re kind of, felt like I was kind of blindly throwing darts just trying to find something.”

PGA Championship odds have Scheffler at +900, so he’s being well-supported to win. He’s an excellent chance and we wouldn’t leave him out of selections.

Brush Up on English

Harris English shouldn’t be overlooked and his Mayakoba Golf Classic odds are mouthwatering. He’s a +6000 chance to win and he could surprise a few.

The American came in T28 at the Shriners and T40 at the CJ Cup, indicating that he is not far from putting forth a strong effort.

It cannot be overstated that he has more victories than Hovland thanks to his four PGA Tour victories. The 33-year-old won twice in 2013 before returning to the Tournament of Champions eight years later.

He followed it up by winning the 2021 Travelers, proving that he can triumph in major competitions and that the odds are worth snapping up.
