Texas Open Betting Picks
Now, let’s get to the Valero Texas Open Betting Picks and try to help fatten that wallet for the hundreds of golf bets and golf prop bets in The Masters next week! The online sportsbook odds quoted for all of these golf picks are from the BetUS Sportsbook.
As is the case in most tournaments the strokes gained on approach is important, and at the Texas Valero Open it is one of the main metrics to predict the winner here. The information used here is from the PGA Tour statistics.
Cameron Davis (35/1 Golf Odds at BetUS)
In the most important statistical measure, Davis is ranked 33rd in strokes gained on the approach to the green this PGA Tour season and in the top five since the beginning of 2021. He is also in the top five this year for strokes gained off the tee and for ball-striking.
Davis finished in 33rd place at the Honda Classic last week but showed significant improvement from the few weeks before that on the Florida Swing portion of the tour. With Dustin Johnson withdrawing from this golf tournament it gives ball strikers like him an uptick in his chances if he can keep his drives in play.
Zach Johnson (50/1 Golf Odds)
This is a guy that can handle playing with wind gusts as demonstrated in his wins here in 2008 2009 his British Open Championship win in 2015. In this event, he most recently finished in fifth place at the 2018 Valero Texas Open.
As explained on the PGA Tour website, Johnson ranks 11th in strokes gained putting the greens in regulation stats have him 30th best this season. Zach attack also shows a great recent form with his tie for eighth place in the Honda Classic two weeks ago.
Abraham Ancer (19/1 Golf Odds)
Ancer should be a popular play, but the only problem is that he hasn’t won on the PGA Tour yet. This is a great Texas Open Betting Pick on golf matchups and golf props like top 10, and many of these golf picks are. He has a top 25 finish for the last three golf tournaments he played.
Sam Ryder (80/1 Golf Odds)
Here is your longshot special, because Ryder finished tied for runner-up in last week’s scrub tournament at Corales and at PGA National he tied for 8th place. Those kinds of sportsbook odds give you an opportunity to cash big without winning on top 20 or top 10 or WTF to win!
