Does Cameron Smith offer underlay or overlay odds?
Smith played okay in the 2021 Sony Open. He shot a -8, which included 3 rounds of 68 or better. But although Smith played well, he didn’t come close to catching Kevin Na at -21. So based on last year’s performance, Smith offers underlay odds. However, no golfer heads to Hawaii playing better than Cameron Smith. The 28-year-old Australian finished fourth at the RSM Classic in November.
Last week, Smith won the Sentry Tournament of Champions. He shot a -34, beating Jon Rahm by a single stroke. Smith is on fire right now, which is why it’s tough to say the +800 are underlay odds. They aren’t overlay odds either, though, because it’s very difficult for any golfer to win back-to- back PGA Tournaments. So we’ll say the odds on Cameron Smith are fair.
Name a golfer or two with odds of +1400 to +1800 who can win the 2022 Sony Open in Hawaii
Both Webb Simpson and Marc Leishman shot a -19 at last year’s tournament. Both should have a shot to win this. Simpson hasn’t finished worse than seventeenth in his last 3 tournaments played. Webb finished fourteenth at the CJ Cup, eighth at the RSM Classic, and seventeenth at the Hero World Challenge. Leishman finished tenth at the Sentry Tournament of Champions. Expect both Simpson and Leishman to play great.
Which golfers with odds of +2500 to +3300 have the best shot of taking the Sony Open?3>
Kevin Na is the defending champion. So he’s automatically worth a look. Also in Na’s favor? He shot a -21 at the Sentry to finish thirteenth. The finish at least week’s tournament could have been a warm up for the real prize, the Sony Open.
Kevin Kisner could win the hardware. He shot a -12 at the 2021 Sony Open. At the Sentry, Kisner made a nice run, shooting a 65 final round to finish at -24 and in eighth place. If he brings those hot sticks to Hawaii, he’ll have a shot.
What are the two best golfers offering odds of +4000 to +5000 who can win in the 2022 Sony Open in Hawaii?
Billy Horschel and Chris Kirk offer overlay odds. Horschel shot a -18 at last year’s tournament. The +4000 choice shot a 66 final round at the Sentry Tournament of Champions to finish at -17. He didn’t crack the top twenty, but he played his best round on the final day.
Chris Kirk offers +5000 odds. Kirk hasn’t played since missing the cut at the RSM Classic. Still, he could make a run for the trophy because he finished at -20 last year, a single stroke off Na. Both Billy Horschel and Chris Kirk or worth looks. Either could get hot in Hawaii and win the Sony Open at massive odds.
