This week's golf sees a team event, with the Zurich Classic in New Orleans, headlined by last year's winners Ryan Palmer and Jon Rahm alongside co-favorites Xander Schauffele and Patrick Cantlay.

 

Weeks like this are often hard to pick as there's less form to go off when it's not a regular stroke play event, but that also means there's plenty of value on the board for us to sink our teeth into.

Let's get into the bets for this week โฌ‡๏ธ

Zurich Classic Top Pick๐Ÿ† 

Schauffele and Cantlay (+700 or 7/1)

Bet $10, win $70 with PointsBet

 

As above, it's never easy to pick a winner in a week like this, and with two teams standing out in co-favoritism, we're backing in the group of Xander Schauffele and Patrick Cantlay.

These two both most recently stepped onto a course for The Masters where they experienced VERY different results, with Xander finishing in T3 whilst Cantlay missed the cut after a particularly horrible Thursday session.

This team is of course the only pairing this week to feature two players in the Top-10 of the Official World Golf Rankings, which should hold them in good stead across what is set to be a pretty different week of golf to usual.

Following the week off to clear their minds for different reasons, the boys are back together and after a successful run at the 2019 Presidents Cup (2-2 as a team and 2-0 in singles) the team of Zander and Cantlay is our top pick for the 2021 RBC Heritage.

Zurich Classic Value Bet๐Ÿ’ฐ

Sam Burns and Billy Horschel (+2200 or 22/1)

Bet $10, win $220 with BetMGM

 

Next up we've got a team that sit around the 22/1 mark with most books. Another all-American team, this time we've got Sam Burns and Billy Horschel.

Horschel in particular is an interesting prospect this week, having recently won the WGC Match Play in a display that showed his abilities in tournament like this that aren't necessarily the norm. 

As for his team-mate Burns, he's been a bit out of form of late but earlier this year was running hot, highlighted by a T3 at Genesis.

Both of these guys can be pretty streaky, but if they get going this week, they could be hard to stop.

Zurich Classic Dark Horse๐Ÿ”ฎ 

Charley Hoffman and Nick Watney (+7000 or 70/1)

Bet $10, win $700 with DraftKings Sportsbook

 

This pick mostly comes due to the form of the first man listed on the team sheet, Charley Hoffman.

Hoffman finds himself at 27th in the FedEx Cup race, with his latest results reading as follows: T18, 2nd, T34, T17, T10, T52 and T7!

Seven straight events without a missed cut and three Top-10s in impressive in anyone's books, and when paired up with man who's won five times on the PGA TOUR, this looks like great value at 70/1.
