Valspar Championship: Schauffele Tees Off as Favorite to Conquer Copperhead

Fresh off a Players Championship T2 finish, Xander Schauffele is all the rage at the Valspar Championship this week.

Our sports betting calculator has him at a value price, and there is also good value with the rest of the field.

Time To Cash In With Schauffele

Despite boasting an impressive eight victories on the PGA Tour, Schauffele’s dire need for a tournament win has become evident.

The 30-year-old, though consistently in the top 10, continues to come up short, and bettors are getting frustrated.

His recent T2 finish behind Scottie Scheffler at The Players Championship only added fuel to the fire, but we can’t be too harsh on the online golf betting favorite.

Having led the pack into the final round, Schauffele squandered his opportunity by posting a disappointing -2, while Scheffler surged ahead with an impressive -8. However, it shows he’s playing well, and the field at the Valspar Championship isn’t nearly as good.


The overdue win is there for the taking, and our sports odds calculator had him around +600, so getting +750 is well worth snapping up.



Chase Theory in Play

Adopting the chase theory when betting on golf isn’t a bad thing.

It’s bad for most sports, but the returns are big when backing golfers, and we expect Cameron Young and Min Woo Lee to win in 2024.

They are worth backing every week until they win, and it’s only a matter of time before they do.

Young has been a beast at the majors, posting numerous top finishes, and we put him in a similar category to Will Zalatoris, who started his career with many good finishes at the majors before eventually winning on the PGA Tour.

Young, the former PGA Tour Rookie of the Year, should be winning in the next few months, so the +2500 golf betting odds are generous.

Lee is another player good enough to win. The Australian is a three-time DP World Tour winner, including the Scottish Open, so he has class wins on the board.

He has become a cult hero, and the +3500 odds are too good to pass up for the enigmatic player.



Big Odds for Straka

At +3500 odds in our sportsbook, Sepp Straka presents a prime opportunity for bettors to land a big payout.

The Austrian golfer showcased his skills with a T16 finish at The Players Championship, and with two PGA Tour victories under his belt, Straka should be at much shorter odds.

Highlighted by notable wins at the 2022 Honda Classic and the 2023 John Deere Classic, Straka’s career record makes for good reading.

While some may downplay his win in the John Deere due to the field’s lack of quality, his triumph over Shane Lowry at the Honda Classic was top-class.

He also narrowly lost out in playoffs at both the FedEx St. Jude Championship and the Sanderson Farms Championship in 2022, so he could be a four-time PGA Tour winner with a bit of luck.
