The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am is one of the most popular PGA Tour tournaments on the schedule.
The idyllic Californian setting is perfect for watching some of the world’s best golfers, including tournament favorite Patrick Cantlay, Jordan Spieth and Will Zalatoris.
Golf betting odds are available for the next stop on the tour and it all starts on Thursday.
Cantlay Can Play
Cantlay, last season’s FedEx Cup winner, has recorded two top-10 finishes since winning the Tour Championship.
The 29-year-old American kicked off his year with a fourth in the Tournament of Champions behind Cameron Smith before finishing ninth at the American Express behind Hudson Swafford.
He is a six-time PGA Tour winner who deserves to be favorite for the Pebble Beach Pro-Am. The sportsbook has him at +800, so there has been plenty of early betting support.
Cantlay said the game can feel easy at times, but the beauty of golf is that it can also feel difficult.
“I think that if you ask professional golfers, I would say at times the game feels really, really easy, and if you would have asked me Thursday, Friday last year playing the tournament, it felt hard, and then something clicked Saturday-Sunday and it felt really easy. If you could tell me why that is, I would be better,” Cantlay told Golf.com following The American Express.
We wouldn’t leave Cantlay off our golf tickets. He’s the classy player of the field and we have loved his form so far. He’s nearing his seventh PGA Tour win and we’re confident enough to wager the +800 odds.
Pick: Patrick Cantlay +800
Willing Zalatoris Over the Line
There isn’t a golf fan in the world not wanting Will Zalatoris to break through and win his first professional event.
He came onto the scene at The Masters and he got back to his best form when losing in a playoff to Luke List at Torrey Pines last week.
It was another agonizing loss for the young American, who missed opportunities on the greens late in the game.
“Will’s a heck of a player, and he’s got an amazing career in front of him,” List said. “Losing a playoff hole stinks, but I know he’ll have amazing success the rest of his career.”
He doesn’t get a better chance to win than at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. It’s a little more relaxed, and although Cantlay is in the field, we have seen better.
Betting online markets have him safe on the third line of betting at +1800, which is worth snapping up. We priced him at +1500, so we’re prepared to adopt the Chase Theory and continue backing him until he wins.
Pick: Will Zalatoris +1800
Stick with Cameron Tringale
Cameron Tringale has been working for years for his first PGA Tour win, but it has yet to materialize.
However, after a string of positive results, we’re continuing to follow him at Pebble Beach.
Tringale finished T3 at the Farmers Insurance Open and was only one shot from making the playoff. It was another close-run thing for the 34-year-old, who is now in the top 50 in the world.
Much like Will Zalatoris, we believe Tringale will get his time in the spotlight and the +3000 odds are worth snapping up.
He’s shorter than the likes of Kevin Kisner and Matt Kuchar, who have 13 PGA Tour wins between them, but it shows how much support he gets on a weekly basis.
