Can Webb Simpson win as outright favourite?

Simpson has come back into a bit of form lately. The American also has a bit of course form too because he was the Wyndham Champion back in 2011. He has not missed the cut in any of his last nine appearances at the event and fired a 62 on Sunday last year, helping him to a share of second place. He has secured a good run of form lately starting with his second place at the RBC Canadain Open. With a good top twenty effort at the US Open and then another second place at the St Jude Invitational last time out, he’s in the zone. he is a great fit for the course and is the 10/1 outright favourite* (betting odds taken from bet365 on July 30th, 2019 at 12:14 pm).

Will Snedkeer be able to defend?

It was the first success at the Wyndham for Brant Snedeker twelve months ago. But he was sort of trending towards that result. Snedeker now has three top-five finishes in his last four visits to Sedgefield, a stunning record. At 25/1 odds he will some appeal for punters* (betting odds taken from bet365 on July 30th, 2019 at 12:14 pm). He has been a little bit up and down but a couple of notable results were top-five finishes at the RBC Canadian and The Rocket Mortgage Classic. It’s there and he enjoys a bit of Wyndham action.

Top Two Picks for Wyndham

Billy Horschel ticks some boxes this week in our Wyndham Championship betting preview. He has had a wonderfully consistent season. He was just outside of the top ten at the Wyndham last season, but just back in 2016 he produced a T5 finish there. He heads to Sedgefield on the back of a top ten finishes at the St Jude Invitational as well. Really nothing much wrong with his game at the moment and his methodical consistency may just play him into contentions.

Patrick Reed was a T12 at Southwind last time out. Reed is a former Wyndham winner as well having claimed the title in 2013. He has banked two top 25 finishes at the event. It’s his current form which piques a bit of interest though because he has connected for four straight top 25 finishes. Three top fifteen finishes (two of them top tens) in his last four outright proves that he is in good shape and the price is right on him at 22/1* (betting odds taken from bet365 on July 30th, 2019 at 12:14 pm)

Best Each Way pick

The first of our longer priced options for the Wyndham Championship is Joaquin Niemann. He didn’t make the weekend at Royal Portrush in the Open, but before that, he was ticking over in some very nice form. Niemann had two top-five finishes in three events before The Open. This will be his second attempt at Sedgefield after holding steady on his debut twelve months ago. He carded a T33 on the track last year but was under par on all four rounds. It’s something to build on and because of his misfire at Portrush is out at 50/1 each way* (betting odds taken from bet365 on July 30th, 2019 at 12:14 pm).

We will go a little longer for our second each way pick who is Jason Dufner at 80/1* (betting odds taken from bet365 on July 30th, 2019 at 12:14 pm). He has not had a particularly strong season, having had struggles with his consistency. He improved last time out at the Barbasol Championship with a top twenty finish. He had a top ten at the Wells Fargo and the Memorial so it has been there in among all the missed cuts that he has put out there this season. Dufner was under par last year at the Wyndham and in 2017 was a top fifteen finisher.

Predictions

There should be plenty of good scoring across Sedgefield this week. Sometimes going into a tournament it is just too hard to ignore the favourite. This is the case with Simpson this week as he heads up the field and is hard to pass up, despite a poor price on him.

The other good value lays on Horschel who appears to be a very good fit for the action this week in Sedgefield. He’s certainly worth taking on at his handy price. The big each-way shot will go to Niemann and backing him to rediscover his pre-Open form.
