Sentry Tournament Of Champions Picks, Predictions & Odds To Back

DraftKings New York Welcome Offer and Promo Code

Silly season is officially over and the golf betting action is about to pop off again, beginning with this week’s Sentry Tournament of Champions at Kapalua Plantation Course in Maui.

The field and format is back to normal in 2022 – winners only, as implied in name – after the tournament additionally welcomed all Tour Championship qualifiers for a 45-man field in 2021 due to COVID-19. The Tournament of Champions signals the start of a new year on Tour with a ton of heavy-hitting events set for the coming months in the build-up to the 2022 Masters.

Reigning US Open champion Jon Rahm is the favorite at sportsbooks and betting sites with +750 odds. Justin Thomas is second at +800 while British Open champ Collin Morikawa is third at +1000.

Viktor Hovland and Bryson DeChambeau round out the top five, with both players listed around +1200 on betting apps.

Sentry Tournament Of Champions Expert Pick & Betting Tips

Best Bet: Marc Leishman Top-10 Finish

Odds:+200 at BetMGM

Leishman definitely fell off from his peak in recent years, but he never slid too far and could be gearing up for a big 2022. The Aussie posted two top-5 finishes in four starts to begin the new season and also logged a T-3 at the QBE Shootout. Now he’s heading back to a course he knows well.

Leishman finished T-7 here in 2018 and T-4 in 2019. We don’t have to worry about him showing up just to chill by the resort pool – Leishman comes to play in Hawaii, where he’s also logged four top-10s in his last eight starts at the Sony Open.

Driver is important around here and Leishman has more than enough distance, as well as experience.

We like the odds at BetMGM with Leishman for a top-10 finish at +200.

Sentry Tournament of Champions Betting Tips

Handicapping a golf tournament is always a little trickier when there’s no recent form to go on. We’ve only seen these guys play once or twice at most in recent months, so it’s hard to gauge how the layoff will impact different players.

Luckily there’s plenty of tournament history to go on here, often with the same cast of characters who pop up in the winner’s circle seemingly every season. We’ll be relying heavily on past results at a course that can be a little tricky for first-timers.

This course features massive greens and rewards those who are dialed in with the irons all four rounds – the list of recent champions includes elite ballstrikers like Harris English, Justin Thomas, Xander Schauffele and Dustin Johnson.

New users at FanDuel who want to sign up and bet on the golf this week can get a risk-free first bet worth up to $1,000. Just check out our FanDuel promo code page for more information or hit 'Bet Now' to get started.
