The TOUR heads to Palm Beach Gardens for The Honda Classic on Thursday. Dustin Johnson was the winner of last week’s Genesis Open, but he’ll be taking this event off this weekend. He’s not the only top golfer to be doing so, as Jordan Spieth, Jason Day and many others are also missing out on this one. Still, there’s plenty of talent in the field for this event. Last year’s winner, Adam Scott, is going to be teeing off on Thursday, and so will guys like Sergio Garcia, Justin Thomas, Rickie Fowler and Louis Oosthuizen. Another guy that is in the field and worth mentioning is Padraig Harrington. Harrington won this event back in 2015, and he is the only player in the field that has won this tournament twice in his career. Two wins are actually the most that any golfer has earned at this tournament, so a win on Sunday would put Harrington into the record books. With that out of the way, let’s now take a look at some of the best values for this tournament:
Adam Scott (23-to-2) - Adam Scott might be the favorite to win this tournament, but 23-to-2 odds can still pay out well. It helps that Scott was excellent in this tournament a year ago. Scott shot a nine-under to defeat Sergio Garcia in a playoff last year, and he also happens to be coming into this event with some confidence. Scott shot a nine-under at the Genesis Open last week, and that was his first major TOUR event of the year. Now that the rust is knocked off, look for him to come out and really play well this weekend.
Justin Thomas (18-to-1) - Thomas has struggled since winning two tournaments in a row in January, but now isn’t the time to shy away from him. Thomas is receiving some absurd odds at 18-to-1, and he is one of the more talented players in a weak field this weekend. Look for him to rebound and play a very good tournament here, as he has the game to really shred this course. He just needs to be a bit better with his irons and he could end up paying out huge.
Louis Oosthuizen (30-to-1) - Louis Oosthuizen has not played any TOUR events since the Waste Management Phoenix Open, but he played very well in that one. Oosthuizen shot a 16-under to finish in third at that tournament, and he’ll now look to take down a rather weak field this weekend. He should have a good shot of doing that, as he is one of the more consistently excellent players on the TOUR. Considering he’s getting 30-to-1 odds, he is worth taking a shot on.
Ollie Schniederjans (75-to-1) - If you’re looking for somebody that can give you a month’s worth of profits then that just might be Schniederjans. The youngster has been playing some incredible golf recently, as he has now finished inside the top 10 in two of his past three tournaments. He was very good at last week’s Genesis Open, as well. Schniederjans shot a 10-under in that tournament, and he should be able to shoot something close to that on this tough course in Florida.
