Best Golf Predictions
2021-22 Fortinet Championship Best Pick
Webb Simpson +1400 (14/1)
Bet $10, win $140 at PointsBet Sportsbook
With the Ryder Cup just around the corner, we're zoning in on a guy that won't be competing for the US, with Webb Simpson missing out on making it as a Captain's pick.
Although this was likely the right call, Simpson will be out to prove Steve Stricker wrong over the next few weeks, with a win here at the Fortinet Championship very much on the cards.
Webb comes into the week as the second favorite behind Jon Rahm (+550) and should be right up this week as clearly one of the best guys in the field.
The 36 year-old failed to win last season, but made the cut in 18 of 21 events, 13 Top-25s and six Top-10 finishes.
Look for Webb to rectify that winless season by kicking off 2021-22 with a trophy straight off the bat.

2021-22 Fortinet Championship Value Pick
Maverick McNealy +5000 (50/1)
Bet $10, win $500 at PointsBet Sportsbook
From a guy who didn't win last season (Simpson), to a guy yet to win on the TOUR, our next pick for this week is 25 year-old Mav McNealy.
McNealy enjoyed what was probably his best season of golf yet, making more cuts than he missed, and finishing in the Top-25 in 11 of his 26 starts.
Mav's best finishes last season included a T2 at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am and a T4 at the RBC Heritage, with a win now surely no far away for the talented hitter.
Despite still searching for his maiden professional victory, Mav knows what it takes to close out wins, with a host of wins as an amateur between 2014 and 2016.

2021-22 Fortinet Championship Dark Horse
Harry Higgs +10000 (100/1)
Bet $10, win $1000 at PointsBet Sportsbook
Our dark horse bet this week is the one and only, Harry Higgs.
Another man who is yet to win on the TOUR, Higgs' best result so far actually came at this event (FKA Safeway Open) last season when he finished solo 2nd.
That impressive performance was capped off by an incredible albatross (see below) and he will be keen to bring those positive energies onto the course again this time around.
As well as that 2nd-placed finish at the Safeway, Higgs' other highlight from last season was undoubtedly a T4 finish at the PGA Championship.
Check out Higgs' best shot from last season's event here👇
