Golf Picks: May 10

By Marc Tersigni

The PGA Championship is just around the corner; many golfers have different strategies when it comes to the week before a major. Some like to play the scheduled PGA event like any other week and use the tournament as a type of tune-up for the major. Others like to take the week off, and head to the major a week early, as they prepare for what is sure to be a massive tournament next week.

On slate this week is the AT&T Byron Nelson being played at the TPC Craig Ranch in McKinney, TX. Six of the top 12 Golfers in the world will be in the field including World #1 Scottie Scheffler, and fan favourites such as Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, and Jordan Spieth (view field here).

The newest Masters Champion Scottie Scheffler is the clear tournament favourite, as he has been playing unreal golf over the last few months. But at only 10-to-1, I can’t justify putting any money on him. This course always plays easy, so unlike a major, many more golfers will be in the mix. In scenarios like this, I tend to put my money on up-and-coming golfers who have come close but haven’t been able to get the job done. This week, I will be taking Will Zalatoris as my outright winner.

Currently, the best price on Zalatoris is +2200 which can be found at BetMGM and BetVictor.

I believe Zalatoris has too much talent. It’s only a matter of time before he is considered to be one of the top golfers in the world. He played this event last year and had a solid tournament debut as he finished T-17. Off the tee, this man is a phenom. He ranks 11th on SG off the tee, he ranks 2nd on SG tee to green, and he ranks 2nd on SG approach the green. His weakness lies in his putter, as he ranks 170th on tour for SG putting. He isn’t a great putter, but I believe he isn’t as bad as the stats may suggest. If his putter can get hot, or even just score above average, I really like his chances of winning his first PGA Tour event this week.

One of betstamp’s largest brand values is transparency. Whether you are looking to tail or fade my picks, or potentially just like reading the breakdowns, you can find my full documented betting record here. Best of luck with your bets today.
