Last week we won big against Lucas Glover (+8000). Wyndham Championship. Let’s see if we can repeat the magic as we turn our attention to TPC Southwind for the 2023 FedEx St. Jude Championship.
The course is a par 70 approximately 7,200 yards with Bermudagrass greens.
The event’s reigning champion, Will Zalatoris, is unfortunately out of this tournament due to injury.
When it comes to gambling within the tournament, we offer everything you need from odds to best bets.
Let’s dive into the action.
As with almost every tournament this year, Scottie Scheffler is the favorite to enter the event at +600 on FanDuel Sportsbook. Rory McIlroy and Jon Rahm have the second best odds at +850. Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele are both listed at +1600, rounding out the top five.
Now that we’ve covered the basics, let’s move on to the top picks and my portfolio for this tournament.
Odds & Field
Scottie Scheffler +600 (bet $10 to win $70 total)
Rory McIlroy +850 ($10 wager to win $95 total)
Jon Rahm +850 ($10 wager to win $95 total)
Patrick Cantlay +1600 (bet $10 to win $170 total)
Xander Schauffele +1600 ($10 wager to win $190 total)
Viktor Hovland +2000 (bet $10 to win $210 total)
Collin Morikawa +2200 ($10 wager to win $230 total)
Tyrrell Hatton +2200 ($10 wager to win $230 total)
Tommy Fleetwood +3000 ($10 wager to win $310 total)
Wyndham Clark +3000 ($10 wager to win $310 total)
Rickie Fowler +3000 ($10 wager to win $310 total)
Tyrrell Hatton Top 20 (-125)
Hatton’s game fits this course perfectly and he’s been a machine over the last year. He’s finished in the top 20 16 times in that span. He has a real shot at beating it, but I’m going to play it safe with a top 20 bet on him here.
TOTAL BETS TO PLACE
Colin Morikawa +2200
Rickie Fowler +3000
Tommy Fleetwood +3000
if you keep following me Twitter, you know, I love betting on long shots (greater than +3000). There’s just something exciting about holding a lottery ticket deep into Sunday, like last weekend with Glover. It also gives you multiple hedging options if you want to eliminate some of your risks.
Here are a few people worth spending some pizza money on.

Hideki Matsuyama +5000
