There are no superstars in the PGA Tour field at the Bermuda Championship this week, so it gives the second-tier players a chance.
Headlining golf betting markets is Denny McCarthy, but there’s excellent value elsewhere, including with Seamus Power.
Sticking with Power
Power won the 2021 Barbasol Championship and we think he can get back to his best form in Bermuda.
The 35-year-old Irishman might not have won enough on the PGA Tour, but he comes off impressive form in the majors. He recorded a T27 at the Masters, T9 at the PGA Championship and a T12 at the U.S. Open.
Power has enough ability to compete at the highest level, which should translate to more success. He could have been tempted to go to the LIV tour, but he’s staying put in his bid to one day make the Ryder Cup team.
“I never dreamed of money when it comes to golf,” Power told PlanetSport. “I love playing golf. I love the level of accomplishment and the personal reward you get.
“There’s no guarantee you are ever going to make a Ryder Cup, but at least you can set it out as a huge goal and something you’ve always dreamed of. There was no way I was going to give up on that.”
The sportsbook has Power at +2200 and those odds are too good to pass up.
- Pick: Seamus Power +2200
Van Rooyen on the Cusp
South Africa’s Erik van Rooyen is another player who should relish the opportunity to pick up a PGA Tour win against this level of opposition.
He owns one PGA Tour win at the 2021 Barracuda Championship and one European Tour win in 2019. He hasn’t been in the best form recently, but he has more ability than most.
His best recent finish was a T10 at the RBC Heritage when Jordan Spieth defeated Patrick Cantlay in a playoff. His form since has been average at best, but if he can show anything close to this form, he should win.
Van Rooyen might be best known for his mustache and cut-off pants, but the +5500 is too juicy to ignore. We can’t turn down golf odds that big for a past PGA Tour winner.
- Pick: Erik van Rooyen +5000
O’Hair to Produce Huge Upset
It has been a tough stretch for Sean O’Hair, who suffered an injury at the driving range and has been steadily working his way back.
He has missed the last three cuts, but he finished T8 at the Barbasol Championship and we expect improvement from the four-time PGA Tour winner, who last won in 2011 at the RBC Heritage.
“Consistency has been my biggest hurdle,” O’Hair said “It’s not just that the game is hard, but the process. The process of trying to be the player I once was, it’s been incredibly frustrating because my body has changed, and I can’t do the things with my swing that I once did. My body doesn’t remember what I once asked it to do.”
Betting online markets have the 40-year-old at astronomical odds of +17500, which we can’t overlook. It would be a huge form reversal but the odds are there for the taking.
- Pick: Sean O’Hair +17500
