Does Sam Burns offer overlay or underlay odds?
In this tournament last year, Burns shot a +1, which was a couple of strokes off the -3 cut. Based on that, he’s an incredible underlay at +1800. But the 25-year-old is in decent form. In early August, Burns finished tied for second at the WGC-Fedex St. Jude Invitational with Masters winner Hideki Matsuyama after losing a playoff to Abraham Ancer.
Burns parlayed the great finish at the WGC-Fedex into a twenty-first at The Northern Trust, an eighth at the BMW Championship, and a decent eighteenth at the Tour Championship. Based on his form, Burns isn’t an underlay or overlay. The odds are fair. But picking a winner is tough in golf, so it might be best to back Burns in a couple of matchups.
Which golfer among Garcia, Zalatoris, Im, and Connors have the best shot of winning the Sanderson Farms Championship?
Last year, Sergio tore up the course. He shot a -19. So Garcia is definitely worth a look. But Garcia may not be the best play. Will Zalatoris missed the cut at last season’s Sanderson Farms Championship. Another twenty- five-year-old golfer, Zalatoris finished eleventh at the Fortinet Championship in mid-September.
He’s got some skills and should have momentum heading to Jackson. Both Connor and Im are worth a look. Sungjae shot a -9 last year. That was 10 strokes off Garcia. Im, though, finished twentieth at the Tour Championship and third at the BMW in August. Sungjae should bring hot sticks to this tournament. Corey Connors blasted a -12 at the 2020 Sanderson Farms. He’s another with a big chance.
Name the top choice for golfers offering odds from +3300 to +4000 who can win the tournament?
Twenty-six-year-old Chilean Mito Pereira played great at the Fortinet Championship. Pereira shot two rounds of 67, a 70, and a 68 on his way to a 272, -16. Pereira could have a massive season. If you miss backing Pereira to win, consider backing in matchups throughout the weekend.
Cameron Davis shot a -14 at last year’s tournament. So he’s another with a shot. Heading into Sunday’s final round at the 2020 Sanderson Farms, Davis was tied with Sergio atop the leaderboard.
Which golfers at +4500 or higher odds can pull off a Sanderson Farms Championship upset victory?
Sebastian Munoz won this tournament in 2019. Last season, he shot a -10 to finish tied for twenty-third. One thing to note about Munoz is that he missed the cut at the Fortinet Championship after a first-round 76 and a second-round 80. But familiar surroundings should help him return to playing his best golf. Another to consider is Keegan Bradley. Keegan shot a -15 at last year’s tournament. If not for a bad 73 in the third round, he may have taken home the trophy.
Both Bradley and Munoz could win at big odds.
