The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am is here and provides one of the most visually appealing events on the PGA Tour. As far as online betting on Pebble Beach matchups, there are some bets just as appealing in the BetUS sportsbook. You may also use these picks when checking our golf odds for the top ten or top 20.
AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am Preview
For your swingers watch, the West Coast swing is nearly over. Next week they travel to Riviera Country Club to play the Genesis Invitational in LA swingers land. After that it’s on to Florida where they’ll probably run into Warren Sapp still celebrating with Tom Brady and the rest of his dawgs after the Buccaneers Super Bowl win.
Pebble Beach has some changes this year. They will only be playing two courses instead of the usual three. But Pebble Beach and Spyglass Hill are two of the best golf courses you’ll ever play. And they are a treat to watch. There are also no amateurs in this tournament, so the cut will be 36 holes instead of the extended 54 for the Pro-Am.
The late news on Monday of Dustin Johnson was him withdrawing, not because of COVID-19. He just needs rest before next week.
With DJ out, that increases the optimism meter for most PGA Tour golfers as he was the odds on betting favorite. He won last week in Saudi Arabia so the golfers playing don’t mind him not showing up.
AT&T Pebble Beach Picks for Tournament Matchups Head-to-Head at BetUS.com
Snedeker vs Harmon
Brandt Snedeker +165
Brian Harmon -190
Snedeker loves this course and has plenty of history to prove it, with wins in 2013 and 2015. He had trouble here the last two years, missing the cut. But in the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines he was playing like the old Sneds, except for a hiccup in the third round, shooting 77. He ended up tied for 32nd and will be putting on poa annua greens this week which he prefers.
Harman, on the other hand, doesn’t love the poa annua compared to other putting surfaces and hasn’t played at Pebble Beach for seven years.
Jones vs Noren
Matthew Jones -135
Alex Noren +115
This is one that will sneak by many people, because Matt Jones has a good running streak at Pebble Beach. Out of his 13 appearances at Pebble Beach, he has six top 25 finishes. He also put in his best Pebble Beach Pro-Am showing last year, finishing in a tie for fifth place. He has three top ten finishes here and is underestimated.
Noren is one of those guys that kind of hangs around and makes cuts but doesn’t do much with them. He finished in a tie for 32nd place in his first appearance here last year, and he will have to do better than middle of the pack to hang with Jones. Besides this golf matchup bet on Jones, he is also worth looking at to make the top ten and top 20.
Mickelson vs Day
Jason Day -210
Phil Mickelson +175
This is your bargain golf matchup bet for the week because Mickelson is getting nearly 2/1 on your golf betting dollar against Day. Phil hasn’t done anything on the PGA tour for about half a year, but he always shows up for Pebble Beach.
Phil has paid five times at Pebble Beach, and leads in lifetime earnings there. Yeah, that’s right – more than Tiger Woods or Mark O’Meara or Dustin Johnson.
Jason Day has a decent record here also but he is one of those up-and-down golfers. This matchup should literally be close to even money or maybe Day -130 max, but you are getting (+175) on Phil. That is an opportunity you must take advantage of. Day did tie for fourth place in 2019, but Phil won it, and Day did come in fourth place last year at Pebble Beach but Phil came in third place, three strokes ahead.
There is Live Betting every week for the PGA Tour event and offers you a chance to press it up, to hedge your bets or to ride a golfer you see on a hot streak. Many sportsbooks have Live Betting for other sports, but live golf betting is rare out there.
