It seems to be a great time to bet on golf at the moment as the favourites are falling by the wayside,this weeks top 6 in the Arnold Palmer betting are:
Rory McIlroy - 3 top 10s so far,putter and short game not the best
Victor Hovland - stated in an interview hes dislike of florida golf courses
Bryson Dechambeau - 12s you cant back him at those odds,out of form,and hes thrown in a couple of stinkers in opening rounds 75!! in the Genesis and 77!! in the Wgc,there is plenty of water for him to go into on this course too
Tyrell Hatton - won in 2020,which is a plus,but form is poor and the rest of hes american form is poor.
Patrick Reid - did nothing this season , did finally win the Farmers , then finished 9th in the Genesis next time out,just one win 2020,experts say hes a talent,but since hes masters win in 2018,hes done very little.
Paul Casey - doesnt have a good record in America,did win the Valsper in 2018.2021 has done virtually nothing,has finished t8 and t5 last two tourneys,but you wouldnt want him at such short odds again
Tip, find a golfer outside the top 6 in the betting if your looking for value,as you can see the top 6 are very opposeable as we stand.

Time for this world class player to win a major
Justin Thomas @ 10-1 win only, not the best price but hes in good form (won a couple of weeks ago) and hes finished 22,17,12,4 in the last 4 years at Augusta, so getting nearer each year.
If the Texas win hasnt taken it out of Spieth, hes got a good chance as he looks like hes got his game back.
Owes me nothing so gone with my usual bet on the 2000 champion Vijay Singh at 1500/1 the tourney and 300's to be first round leader. On a more sensible note gone the same bets with Louis Oosthuizen 66's / 50's and Ryan Palmer 150's / 100's.
Missed the cut
Spieth and Thomas going well, its wide open though. We should get a good final round with a few in with a chance of winning it hopefully, not like the Masters in November.
Unlucky Topdog, thought Cantlay would have performed better.
