2022 The Players Championship Betting Tips
March 10th – 13th, 2022
TPC Sawgrass, Ponte Vedra Beach, Floria
Par: 72 / Yardage: 7,256
Purse: $20 million with $3.6 million to the winner
Defending Champion: Justin Thomas
Last week: T2 Tyrrell Hatton 35/1, T5 Chris Kirk 80/1
The bookies cannot decide between Rahm, Morikawa and Justin Thomas all around 12/1 because this tournament is ALWAYS a lottery where only one thing is for certain, Pete and Alice Dye will win.
Doc's Top 5 Best Each Way Tips
Shane Lowry 45/1
Solo second at The Honda when the rain fell at the worst possible time. 44 fairways and 53 greens found that week, T4 in both stats shows his game is on point. Not playing last week could be a blessing in disguise but all his prowess in the wind will be needed in the first three rounds. Solo 8th last year.
Corey Conners 60/1
Streaky of late but really impressed me last week in a T11 at Bay Hill. Nobody hit more fairways and greens there than Corey and if he can repeat the dose at The Players he can emulate his solo 7th from 2021 in what was just his second appearance.
Gary Woodland 66/1
No top-10 from nine starts at The Players
(hence not fancied by the bookies) but something has clicked recently and Woodland cannot be ignored. T5 at both The Honda and Arnie with exceptional stats and if he's not beaten up at this stage, watch out for a surprise.
Alex Noren 125/1
If the rotten weather predicted materialises, Alex might be the man to scrap it out. Respect to anyone who can play well on East and West coasts (T6 in Phoenix, T5 at The Honda) and rested he'll be up to improve on a best of 10th in 2017.
Brooks Koepka 40/1
I just cannot leave Brooks off my betslip at 40/1, those odds are ridiculous. Yes I know he's missing cuts but everyone also knows it takes a big event to excite him. T16 last time out at PGA National and a T3 in Phoenix shows he's competitive and his propensity for blunt force trauma will be an advantage if the expected setup and conditions materialise.
Long Odds Glory Shots
Sergio Garcia at 90/1 is overpriced. Good in wind, T9 last year, winner in 2008 with three other podium finishes in eight top-15's.
Jason Day is another who loves a scrap at 80/1. Also a former winner from 2016 and he's top 10'd twice since. T3 at the Farmers two starts ago. Avoided the carnage at PGA National last week.
