Potential Winners

Bryson DeChambeau ($11,000) – Click here to bet on DeChambeau to win @+1100

Another week on the PGA Tour and another week with Bryson DeChambeau in my lineup. I’d stop picking him if I thought he had the chance to disappoint, but he’s just playing too well right now to leave off your roster. He followed his T-3 performance in the Charles Schwab Challenege with a T-8 finish in last week’s RBC Heritage, and I think this is the week he gets a win. He’s driving the ball unbelievably well, and is 1st on the Tour in strokes gained off the tee. Expect him to continue to impress this week, even as the second most expensive player on DraftKings.

Patrick Cantlay ($9,400) – Click here to bet on Cantlay to win @ +2600

Cantlay is a little bit of an unknown, seeing as we haven’t seen him since play restarted almost three weeks ago, but he’s another strong pick for the Travelers Championship. He has two top-5 finishes this season and has finished inside the top 25 four times. He scores 86.8 Fantasy Points Per Tournament on DraftKings this season, which is fifth most on Tour and has finished top 15 in each of his last two appearances in the Travelers. He should come on strong this week after the break in play.

Jordan Spieth ($8,400) – Click here to bet on Spieth to win @ +5000

Backing Jordan Spieth, whether it’s through traditional betting or daily fantasy, has been a roller coaster ride of late. He was in contention going into the final round of the Charles Schwab Challenge before shooting a 71 on Sunday, and followed his opening round 66 in the RBC Heritage with a 70 in Round 2 and a 75 in Round 3, finishing T-68. Having said that, the flashes of greatness have been there. His seven birdies on his final nine holes in last Thursday’s opening round were spectacular to watch, and I’m banking on him capturing that magic this week. Plus, every time I think of the Travelers Championship I’m reminded of his walk-off bunker shot to win here in 2017.

Value Plays

Joaquin Niemann ($7,900) – Click here to bet on Niemann to win @ +4000

Niemann has been playing great golf this season, especially since the restart. He started with a T-32 finish at Colonial CC and followed it up with a T-5 at last week’s RBC Heritage. He already has a win this season and three top-10 finishes to his name, and he came in fifth at this event last year. At $7,900, his price is too good to pass up.

Patrick Rodgers ($6,900) – Click here to bet on Rodgers to win @ +12500

Rodgers has had one great showing and a sub-par showing since the restart. He finished T-14 two weeks ago before narrowly missing the cut last week. Rodgers is one of the best putters on Tour, and if he can put together a solid weekend off the tee he should be there come Sunday. He’s 6th in strokes gained putting and 3rd in total putting. Getting a golfer that has a top-3 finish in this event (2016) for under $7,000 is great value.

Scottie Scheffler ($7,600) – Click here to bet on Scheffler to win @ +7500

Scottie Scheffler has four top-10 finished this season, including two top threes, and you can get him for under $8,000? Sign me up. Scheffler withdrew from the RBC Heritage late last week, but had a decent showing in the Charles Schwab Challenge before he fell off with a final-round 73. The 24-year old is 8th on Tour in strokes gained off the tee and 35th overall in total strokes gained. Putting has been his weakness, but we’re hoping he can put it together for a strong finish this weekend.
