2021-22 PGA Tour Houston Open Golf Picks, Predictions, Odds and Best Bets

The fresh season of golf continues this week with the 2021-22 Houston Open on Thursday morning held at Memorial Park Golf Course, Texas. As with every event on the golf schedule, we've got three outright winner picks, ranging from one of favorites to some mega value!

We've gone through this week's Houston Open and found three guys that we like to win this week's golf tournament, varying from one of the top favorites, who still represents good value, down to some nice value on a couple of stars that look set for big weeks at longer odds! We also show you the best sportsbook promos to play.

After recently picking Garrick Higgo to win the Palmetto Championship at 40/1 and Xander to win gold at the Olympics, we're confident of another outright winner here!

With crowds back and a host of big names out there, we're set for an awesome four days of golf ... and betting! As we do each and every tournament, we provide you with our best golf picks for outright winner, as well as some in-play picks throughout.

Best Golf Predictions

2021-22 Houston Open Best Pick

Scottie Scheffler +1800
Bet $10, win $180 at BetMGM

There is a lot of value on the board this week, with the favorites starting around +1500 with most books, and the top of the list is exactly where we are starting.

Most books have Sam Burns and Scottie Scheffler as the top chances this week, and when it comes to Scheffler in particular, we agree.

The 25-year-old is yet to get his first victory on the TOUR, but with this event down in his native Texas, it could just be the week!

Last season saw Scheffler make 24/29 cuts, with his best results being 2nd in the Match Play (see below) and 3rd at Memorial.

The young star was ranked 17th for shots gained: off-the-tee in 2020-21, as well as 21st in shots gained: tee-to-green, showing that if he can roll the rock this week, he will be right in with a chance.

Here's Scheffler duking it out with the best player in the world ๐Ÿ‘‡

2021-22 Houston Open Value Pick

Brooks Koepka +3000 
Bet $10, win $300 at BetMGM

Brooks at big odds? Yep, that's value.

Although the four-time major winner has yet to hit top form in this fresh season, he's still the biggest alpha in this field and likely the best player on paper too.

But looking beyond that, there's some legitimate reasons that Brooks is presenting value this week.

First of all, he finished T5 here last season, in an event that had a stronger field than the one this year (2021 saw DJ and Hideki finish in the Top-5).

Next up is his form when coming off a missed cut like he is this week. In the last four times he has missed the cut, Brooks has backed it up with three Top-5 finishes, including a win and a 2nd. The other though, was another missed cut!

Overall, we shouldn't really be getting this guy at these odds, just like we explained when he won the Waste Management at +5500 last season.

Check out that win here๐Ÿ‘‡

2021-22 Houston Open Dark Horse

Brian Harman +8000 
Bet $10, win $800 at BetMGM

Our dart this week comes in the form of the left-hander from Georgia, Brian Harman.

Harman is a two-time winner on the TOUR, with his most recent coming back in 2014. 

But even though he hasn't won in a while, Harman is still a solid week-to-week prospect that both DFS and Top-20 bettors are more than familiar with.

The 34-year-old made 24/28 cuts last season, including a T24 finish at this very event.

Harman had five Top-10 finishes in 2021-22, with his best asset being his short game, noted by a ranking of 13 in shots gained: around-the-green.

Check out Harman's first career win here ๐Ÿ‘‡
