CJ Cup Odds & Predictions: Top 5 Most Wagered Golfers On The PGA Tour This Week
CJ Cup Odds & Fantasy Picks
The CJ Cup heads to Shadow Creek due to current international restrictions put in place to combat COVID19. Previous CJ Cup's have been held at Nine Bridges in South Korea.
There isn't a great deal of course data available for fantasy players this week, the last time we saw Shadow Creek was in the Tiger Woods v Phil Mickelson match-up back in 2018. However, the course measures at 7,527 and is a no-cut event. Key stats worth noting when betting or building your fantasy line-ups include:
- SG: Approach
- Ball Striking
- P4's 450-500
We've highlighted the top five most wagered golfers in the CJ Cup field this week below, and also the least wagered players which hopefully give you a steer on ownership projections.
CJ Cup Betting: Top Five Most Wagered Players
1) Cameron Smith
CJ Cup Best Odds: +11000 - Click here to betCJ Cup Worst Odds: +7000
Cameron Smith comes into the CJ Cup following a T24 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open last week. He ended the 2020 season in pretty decent form, recording three top 25 finishes in a row, which included a T24 at the Tour Championship. Smith doesn't necessarily fit the statistics we've highlighted above, however, he's gained shots in approach in his last six events.
2) Matthew Wolff
CJ Cup Best Odds: +1600 - Click here to bet CJ Cup Worst Odds: +1400
It's pretty easy to see why Matthew Wolff is fancied to win in Vegas this weekend. The young American fits the course profile, and is coming into the event in career-best form.
3) Justin Thomas

Justin Thomas is another whose profile stacks up well for this course. Thomas was last seen at the US Open where he finished in T8, before that he ended up T2 at the Tour Championship.
4) Mackenzie Hughes
CJ Cup Best Odds: +11000 - Click here to betCJ Cup Worst Odds: +8000
There must be a large proportion of online bettors who think the CJ Cup could turn into a putting competition. Hughes was in the top 10 on the PGA Tour for both SG: Around-the-green and SG: Putting last season.
5) Joaquin Niemann
CJ Cup Best Odds: +5000 - Click here to betCJ Cup Worst Odds: +4000
Niemann continues to grow on the PGA Tour, and would be talked about a lot more as a future major winner if it wasn't for Hovland, Wolff and Morikawa. Niemann finished up T13 last week, and ended up T23 at the US Open.
