Doc's 5 Best Each Way Bets
Chez Reavie 66/1
Ten cuts made from 11 starts at Silverado for Chez where his straight batting from the tee on a short course by Tour standards gives him a chance. T31 last time out at the Northern Trust and T3 here last year.
Marc Leishman 50/1
You just never know when Marc will pop up and perform but there's enough to give him a squeak here. Winner of the Zurich with Cam Smith in April but not so hot since a 3rd at the Travelers at the end of June. One poor round scuppered a decent week last time out at the BMW Championship. Best on this course of solo 3rd in 2019.
Kevin Na 18/1
Arguably in the form of his life at the moment. T2 at the John Deere and Wyndham, T8 at the Northern Trust, then 3rd at the Tour Championship. His putting stats over the last six events are some of the best I've ever seen. Na loves this event too; he's been 2nd, T3 and 7th in the past. Has to be on your slip.
Brian Stuard 125/1
Missed the cut in his last appearance of the season at the Northern Trust but before that was on a run of four straight top-15 finishes. Short off the tee will not be a problem this week. Ninth time playing in the event, he finally figured it out last year with a T3 finish.
Ryan Moore 125/1
Based on no more than a sneaky feeling he might do well here. Misses more cuts than a blunt scissors but shines when least expected. Like he did from nowhere with a T2 at the John Deere and walked away with a half million in his back pocket. Four top-10's here from seven starts and a T2 in 2018.
