The PGA Tour is done swinging on the West Coast after the LA swingers took it to the players at Riviera, and we are off to the Florida swing with online sportsbook odds that are beatable for our WGC-Workday Championship Preview and WGC futures bets.
This WGC event will not have a cut, so the 72 players are invited to get a full four days in no matter how much they’re scrubbing it up out there. This is nice for the international golfers to get their feet wet and then give them a chance to work out kinks before The Players Championship and The Masters smack them in the mouth.

WGC-Workday Championship Field is Stacked
The first week of the Florida swing starts early this year since the WGC Mexico has been moved this year to Florida. Like the Super Bowl hosted Tampa area doesn’t have enough sporting events this year. Tampa is definitely the best place to live this past COVID year for sports betting and for sports fans. Don’t get mad. Just move there!
If you thought the last golf tournament played at Riviera Country Club was stacked, the ins and outs of the upgrade here would make this a double-double! This one’s really got it going with all 15 top-ranked players in the world, and there are a lot of ways to bet. These WGC Workday futures picks should help.
In last weeks’ Genesis Invitational we had some hits and misses that weren’t quite as bad as Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas missing the cut. It will usually be the case that some of our recommendations on golf odds bets to place are off but not usually like last week.
Last Week’s Genesis Golf Picks Review
Dustin Johnson (5/1 Golf Odds) – Tie for 8th place.
Adam Scott (28/1 Golf Odds) – Tie 38th place.
Joaquin Niemann (40/1 Golf Odds) Tie for 43rd place.
Bubba Watson (40/1 Golf Odds) Keegan Bradley (130/1 Longshot Golf Odds) Tie for 43rd place.
We took a little hit for the first week in a while at Riviera, but we will get it back! Scott shot a 73-76 on Friday Saturday to blow it before his impressive 66 on Sunday. Too little, too late. The youngster Niemann blew it on moving day, shooting a 78, but is still hitting the ball like a champ. He is one to keep betting back.
Bubba Watson was a disappointment, because everybody knows there are two PGA Tour events to bet on golf odds with Watson, and that is at Riviera and at Augusta for The Masters. He has three wins here in less than a decade, and this week he decided to shoot 71-75, walk to his car and bounce.
WGC-Workday Championship Preview
Maybe the name of this golf club for the WGC-Workday Championship is The Concession, but that 7,474 yards of par 72 trouble wasn’t designed by Jack Nicklaus and Tony Jacklin to be a free dance. It also won’t be very forgiving on these Bermuda greens.
The funky green layouts with the different levels and complex breaks demand accuracy on your approach shots to the green, which is one important category we’ve based these WGC futures picks on. The greens are also a little smaller than average which puts your short game to the test. If you happen to miss the green you need to know where to miss it.
WGC-Workday Championship Futures Picks
Bryson DeChambeau 18/1
This layout is setting up like a dream for Bryson DeChambeau to do well and isn’t just going off of the yardage and layout of the holes. Bryson won the 2015 NCAA Men’s Championship here while he was playing for Southern Methodist University, or SMU as it is known to the NCAA College probation and violation department.
Tyrrell Hatton 18/1
Hatton is like a bulldog going after that pizza spilled on the floor. He is going to keep trying and keeps getting closer to victory before it is swiped away from him by another human. This sets up as a good time for Hatton to get that pizza.
His solo PGA Tour win was in Florida and he is coming in strong though you wouldn’t know it from his United States statistics. Hatton hasn’t played on the PGA Tour for three months, but he won in Abu Dhabi in January on the European Tour. He also leads the European Tour’s Race to Dubai. And, he has finished top 20 in 12 of his last 20 golf tournaments, with three victories.
Viktor Hovland 23/1
Hovland is on quite a consistency roll to be tested by the Concession golf course. He has been in the top six five times since he won at Mayakoba and presents an excellent upside golf bet to place in the top ten and other golf props to bet at BetUS.
Last week he really had a chance to win or be in the top three but lost strokes to the field both in putting and around the green. I have the main part of his game that will help them this week is driving because he led the Genesis Invitational last week in strokes gained off the tee.
Tony Finau 18/1
This is your bonus pick because everybody is down on Tony Finau, as he hasn’t had a win in his last 127 PGA Tour golf starts. The thing about this is he is not choking for the most part. He shot a 64 with no bogeys last Sunday to get into a playoff loss. He will win. It will be soon. It will be less than 18 tournaments so at 18/1 golf odds, he is a go.
Finau has finished in the top four in his last four golf tournaments with three of those being at least a tie for second place, if that helps.
The best thing going for golf bettors is Live Betting at BetUS, because they have it every week for all PGA Tour events. This is a major reason to bet at this storied and solid sportsbook.
