The majority of sports fans may be prioritizing March Madness right now, but that's not to say that the PGA Tour shouldn't a BIG focus for bettors across the country.

 

This week, the Tour heads to the Championship Course in South Florida as the West Coast Swing continues. After the high of THE PLAYERS last week and a leaderboard for the ages, this week's field is a little weaker as players begin their runs towards the majors.

In saying that, there is still plenty of value on the board, with some fishing around multiple sportsbooks looking quite beneficial this week! Visit our Golf Hub for data-led probabilities for the Winner, Top 5, Top 10 and Top 20 having simulated the tournament 10,000 times!

๐Ÿ’ฐ Promo to Play ๐Ÿ’ฐ

 

Lee Westwood
To finish Top-10 but not win (+325)
Bet $50, win $212.50
Only at PointsBet

Westwood has finished second in his last two tournaments (plus T4 at this tournament last year) and is clearly one of the best guys in the field this week, making this look like an extremely good bet at nice odds.

Looking ahead to our picks for the week now, we’ve once again gone with three outright winner plays, ranging from the outright favorite to a couple of value plays.

 

๐ŸŒ๏ธ‍โ™‚๏ธ Outright winner picks

 

๐Ÿ†  Top Pick:

Sungjae Im (+1400 or 14/1)

Bet $10, win $140 with DraftKings Sportsbook 

 

Last year's champion at this very tournament, Sungjae Im is primed to get another dub, after a flurry of good performances to kick off 2021. 

Sungjae began this calendar year with an extremely impressive T5 at the Sentry TOC, before following it up with seven consecutive made cuts, with four of those seeing finishing T21 or better!

This run of form - combined with his win here twelve months ago - makes Sungjae our top pick for the 2021 Honda Classic.

A favorite both here and at the Tail & Print podcast, Sungjae is one of the best guys to root for come Sunday.

๐Ÿ’ฐ Value Bet:

Joaquin Niemann (+2000 or 20/1)

Bet $10, win $200 with PointsBet  

 

Now, this is a value bet! As you would've seen above, our first pick came from DraftKings Sportsbook, where if you were to bet on Niemann you would be getting 12/1 odds! 

We've found Niemann at a MUCH better 20/1 which simply can not be passed up on. This guy started the year red-hot and is going to get his second win soon!

The Chilean began the year with a playoff loss to Harris English in the Sentry TOC, going on to get another second placed the week after, before making every other cut since.

๐Ÿ”ฎ Dark Horse:

J.T. Poston (+7000 or 70/1)

Bet $10, win $700 with DraftKings Sportsbook

 

These odds have absolutely blown our mind here at Dimers HQ. With the 2019 Wyndham Championship coming in at 70/1!

The reason we like J.T. so much this week is simply his form. He started last week's PLAYERS at +6 through the first eight holes, before rallying back to finish in T22 with a final score of -5, meaning he went -11 through his final 64 holes! 

His 2019 Wyndham win came in a stronger field than this, whilst including some of the top players that are featuring in South Florida this week. 

Check out the highlights from that win here๐Ÿ‘‡

2021 Dark Horse record:

 

Sungjae Im @ Sentry TOC – T5 (Top 5)
Marc Leishman @ Sony Open – T4 (Top 5)
Cameron Champ @ AmEx – CUT
Corey Conners @ Farmers – T37
Jason Day @ Phoenix – CUT
Harold Varner @ Pebble – CUT
Cameron Smith @ Genesis – 4th (Top 5)
Collin Morikawa @ WGC Workday – WIN
Marc Leishman @ AP Invitational – CUT
Tommy Fleetwood @ PLAYERS - CUT

As you can see, we've now had four dark horses place in the Top-5 this season (including an outright winner!!), rewarding bettors big time as we always recommend playing these guys to finish Top-20, Top-10 and Top-5 as well as an outright win!
