2018 Wyndham Championship Preview & Golf Betting Picks.

2018 Wyndham Championship Preview & Golf Picks

Written by on August 14, 2018

After a great PGA Championship, where Brooks Koepka held off Tiger Woods for an exciting victory, most of the top golfers on the PGA Tour will take this week off.  That doesn’t mean that the 2018 Wyndham Championship won’t produce a high odds winner. In fact, because golfers like Brooks and Tiger won’t hit the course, the Wyndham winner will offer odds of at least +1200. The Wyndham Championship takes place at the Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina. The tournament takes place from Thursday, August 16, through Sunday, August 19. Keep reading for our 3 category preview and picks for the Wyndham Championship!

2018 Wyndham Championship Favorites

  • Webb Simpson
  • Henrik Stenson
  • Adam Scott
  • Brandt Snedeker
Webb Simpson is the Wyndham Championship favorite at +1400 odds. Simpson ranked eleventh on the PGA Tour Money List and finished nineteenth at the PGA Championship last week. He finished twelfth at The Open Championship earlier in the year. He certainly has a right to be favored, but he’s not the favorites pick. The pick is last year’s Wyndham Championship winner, Henrik Stenson. Stenson almost certainly circled the Wyndham as a tournament he could win this year. Henrik wasn’t great at The Open Championship, the Bridgestone Invitational, or the PGA Championship, where he missed the cut. He should turn around the bad form this week. Golf Betting Pick: Henrik Stenson

2018 Wyndham Championship Second Choices

  • Rafael Cabrera Bello
  • Shane Lowry
  • Billy Horschel
  • Joaquin Nieman
  • Stewart Cink
Shane Lowry shot a -15 at last year’s Wyndham Championship. That was 7 strokes off winner Henrik Stenson. Lowry could produce another solid effort at Sedgefield this week. But, the player that looks good in the Second Choices category is Rafael Cabrera Bello. Cabrera Bello has been in excellent form in his last couple of PGA Tournaments. He finished seventeenth at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. He finished tenth at the PGA Championship. Cabrera Bello’s sticks are hot. He might be the best player in this category.                                       Golf Betting Pick: Rafael Cabrera Bello

2018 Wyndham Championship Underdogs         

  • Russell Henley
  • Ryan Moore
  • Daniel Berger
  • Si Woo Kim
23-year-old player Si Woo Kim missed the cut at the PGA Championship. He did finish tenth at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational two tournaments ago, though. Not only that, but he made the cut in 2 of the 4 major tournaments this year. Si Woo Kim looks like an underdog for the Wyndham Championship. The Wyndham Championship, like the RBC Heritage where Kim finished second, is the type of tournament that will flatter his game. The young golfer should be at his best. He offers excellent +4000 odds. Si Woo Kim is worth a look to win it all. Golf Betting Pick: Si Woo Kim
