The PGA Tour’s Florida swing ends with this week’s Valspar Championship. Paul Casey is the defending champion and we will take a look at the betting prospects with these golf tips.
2019 Valspar Championship Betting Tips
Jon Rahm to win @ 41/4 - BET NOW
The recent roll of honour for this event has a cosmopolitan look to it, with five different nationalities triumphing in the past five years.
Australia’s John Senden won in 2014, followed by American Jordan Spieth, Charl Schwartzel of South Africa and Canadian Adam Hadwin before Englishman Casey landed the spoils 12 months ago.
I fancy another European to do the business this year, with Spanish ace Rahm due a win and trending in the right direction. He was in contention at last week’s Players Championship before ending up in a share of 12th and has already secured five top 10s as well as winning the Hero World Challenge.
The Ryder Cup ace is swinging the club well and rarely has a bad tournament these days. He appears hungrier than ever to add to his one PGA Tour title and it could be at Innisbrook Resort on Sunday. He is a top-10 machine and the golf odds on that are 11/10, but Rahm may have his sights on more than just being among the contenders.
Patrick Reed top 10 finish @ 5/2 - BET NOW
Reed has not enjoyed the best of seasons to date and has yet to trouble the top 10 in eight outings but, when the Texan gets hot, he is capable of challenging for glory. A couple of 13th-place finishes earlier in the year showed that he is not far away and, having stated that he is “really close” to finding his best form, it could be this week on the west coast of Florida.
He will defend his Masters title at Augusta next month and will see every tournament between now and then as a stepping stone to the year’s first major. There is no better shot in the arm than winning but a top-10 would certainly be a move in the right direction.
Sergio Garcia top 10 finish @ 13/8 - BET NOW
Garcia was on a roll with back-to-back top 10s before a petulant display saw him disqualified in Saudi Arabia. However, that did not seem to affect the Spanish veteran, who was tied sixth in Mexico while he shared ninth at the Honda Classic.
Now just 10 months away from his 40th birthday, the 2017 Masters champion has little to prove save for the fact he has not won stateside since his Augusta glory, and will be hoping for a decent finish with another Green Jacket up for grabs in three weeks.
He has not won as many tournaments as his talent suggests he should have and that is why golf betting on ‘El Nino’ should focus on the top-10 market. He has secured back-to-back Valderrama Masters on the European Tour but, the Masters aside, has won just once on the PGA Tour since 2012.
