It’s Wednesday, so we’re at the point of the week where you’re finalizing your bets and pool entries. Before you spend all the money in your sportsbook account, we have more bets for you to consider.
Hand up, I’m drinking the Keegan Kool-Aid this week. The Vermont native is always plenty jacked up to play golf, but he’s extra-jacked up this week in Boston, home of his Celtics,
Keegan Bradley (-115, DraftKings)
who will look to avoid elimination on Thursday night in the NBA Finals, and his Red Sox, who won at Fenway Tuesday night after Bradley threw out the first pitch.
Only two players can boast that they’re top 20 in SG/approach, SG/off the tee and SG/around the green over the past 24 rounds: Jordan Spieth and Mito Pereira (stat per Fantasy National).
Mito Pereira (-115, FanDuel)
Mito’s game is major ready, as proven by Southern Hills, and at nearly even odds, I like this bet a lot.
This is a very pro Keegan Bradley post. Not so much because of the Boston vibes like CP mentioned … but more so because he’s an elite driver of the ball who just played great at TPC Potomac,
Keegan Bradley (+700, DraftKings)
which I think is somewhat of a decent comp … a course with heavy rough and difficult scoring. Keegan plays in the more favorable morning wave, and he also tends to start off hot at a typical event, making me like this.
The Canadian has been a friend to the gambling community for quite some time now thanks to his all-around game, which should translate to success in U.S. Opens. Unfortunately, that hasn’t been the case, as Conners has yet to make the cut in this event in his career.
Corey Conners, (+200, Bet365)
Fleetwood’s first-round numbers this season are tour average at best, but strong showings at the PGA Championship (fifth-place) and the Masters (14th) indicate that majors are the weeks the Englishman gets up for.
Tommy Fleetwood, First-round leader (60-1, FanDuel)
In order to win one, though, he needs to get off to a better start. That might only mean two or three under at a course as tough as Brookline, which should be enough to at least have a little Thursday evening sweat for FRL.
