Trying to pick a first-round leader can be quite chaotic. Betting on golf always is, but when it's one single round you have to choose from it becomes even more of a guessing game. Still, Jon Rahm's +2200 odds to finish Thursday's first round is the shortest in the field, alongside Rory McIlroy.

Players Championship Prediction - Jon Rahm

Jon Rahm is the best golfer in the world. There isn't a thing he does poorly and he comes to play every single week. having said that, if there is a course that Rahm struggles playing or an event that he can't seem to master, it's this week's.

The Players Championship is one of the most prestigious events in the world of golf, especially if you put the majors in a category of their own. So, you'd think Rahm, the best golfer in the world, would rise to the occasion. But, he hasn't

In his five times playing in the Players Championship, Rahm has managed to finish in the top 10 just one time. That time came in 2021, which is a good trend to back, but it's tough to find much in Rahm's favor when looking at history.

I have enough faith in Rahm to ignore the fit and play him based on his recent sharp form. But, I don't think backing him to win the event has much value. At +850, you're betting Rahm to win one of the rare events he struggles with. Instead, I'll take +115 odds to have him finish inside the to 10.
