Is Webb Simpson a good play at +900?

Simpson finished 15th at the Shriners Hospital For Children Open. He shot a very good -13, but he couldn’t take home the trophy. The winner Bryson Dechambeau shot a -21. It sort of feels like the odds makers set Simpson the favorite because no other name golfer save for Zach Johnson has entered.

Simpson could prove most golf handicappers wrong and win as the single digit favorite. More likely finish in the Top 10 without actually challenging for the top spot. Simpson’s a play against because the RSM Classic is wide-open.

Which less than +3300 shot, Cameron Champ, JJ Spaun, CT Pan, or Chesson Hadley, deserves a look?

Every golfer offering odds has a shot to win the RSM Classic. Austin Cook won it last year and he’s not even one of the Top 5 choices to win it this year. With that being written, the golfer offering less than +3300 odds that deserve the longest look is Chesson Hadley.

Hadley played very well at the Shriners Hospital for Children Open last week. He shot a magnificent 69, 67, 65, 68, total 269. Hadley didn’t shoot well at the RSM Classic last year. He finished 37th, but he’s got a great shot of heading into Sunday only 2 to 4 strokes off. If that happens, he’ll be tough to keep from winning the tournament.

What are the two longshots with the best chances of winning the RSM Classic?

None of the big names, Tiger, Phil, Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy, are teeing off at the RSM Classic. That’s why the odds are overlaid on so many golfers. Austin Cook’s an obvious choice at very good odds. He won the tournament last year and has made the cut in 2 of 3 events played when the PGA Tour Season started in early October. Cook could make it back-to-back.

Kevin Kisner’s the other golfer to keep an eye on. At +3500, he offers excellent odds. Kisner finished fourth last year at the RSM Classic. Kisner didn’t make the cut in the only tournament he’s played this PGA Season. He could turn it on at the RSM, though.

Truth be told, Webb Simpson’s really the only golfer bettors should stay away from. He’s the lone player offering less than double-digit odds. If bettors look for a price, they could make out big time wagering on this week’s RSM Classic.
