Travelers Championship final-round betting preview

  Travelers Championship final-round betting preview Brendon Todd holds a two-shot lead over Dustin Johnson heading into the final round of the Travelers Championship. And unlike the last two weeks on the PGA Tour, the leaderboard is very spread out with 18 holes left. At the RBC Heritage, 21 players were within three shots of the lead on the final day. Going into Sunday, two players are within three strokes of Todd, and only six are within five. A spaced-out leaderboard complicates things from a betting perspective, as there are few players with a real opportunity to win the tournament. Only seven players have been given greater than a 1% chance of standing in the winner's circle on Sunday, according to Data Golf.

Justin Thomas carries a two-shot lead into the final round of the Workday Charity Open, which makes betting on Sunday's action a little more difficult for a few reasons.

Before diving in, here's a peek at the top of the betting board.

First, Thomas is playing flawless golf. The world No. 5 was the betting favorite heading into the week and he has yet to make a bogey through 54 holes. He leads the field in strokes gained: tee to green and is going to be very difficult to beat Sunday.

With that said, betting Thomas at -159 offers very little value. If you want to shell out that kind of money for a small return, feel free. But it's far from the recommended play.

Recharged Hughes ready for back-to-back events at Muirfield Village

  Recharged Hughes ready for back-to-back events at Muirfield Village The week following each of his two top-three finishes this year, Mackenzie Hughes took a break. The first occasion - after his solo-second result at the Honda Classic - was circumstantial. At the time, he did not qualify for the subsequent Arnold Palmer Invitational, then the coronavirus pandemic shut down the PGA Tour for three months. But skipping last week's Rocket Mortgage Classic after his sensational run at the Travelers Championship - where he drained two miraculous birdie putts on his final two holes to finish in a tie for third - was by choice.

The Workday Charity Open replaces the canceled John Deere Classic on the PGA Tour schedule this week and will be the first of two straight tournaments played at Below, we look at the best matchup, placing and first- round leader bets to pair with your outright picks for the Workday Charity Open .

Hovland (+350) is Thomas' closest competitor. Sitting two strokes back, the young Norwegian is one of few players who can go toe-to-toe with Thomas. If everything goes his way, he has a chance of catching the leader.

Morikawa is interesting from a value perspective. He's only three shots back, and at +650, he's a little more enticing than Hovland despite the one-shot difference. The 36-hole leader played horribly Saturday, but if he rebounds and strikes the ball as he did Thursday, a low round of 65 is a real possibility.

If the top of the betting board isn't of interest, here are a few golfers to target in final-round matchup bets as players who could post a low score Sunday.

Keegan Bradley: The 34-year-old ranks eighth this week in strokes gained: tee to green but can't get a putt to drop, which is pretty standard for him. However, if Bradley continues to strike the ball well and sees a few extra putts drop, a 6-under round isn't out of the question.

Still testing positive, Frittelli among 3 back to work

  Still testing positive, Frittelli among 3 back to work DUBLIN, Ohio — Dylan Frittelli says it was hard not to feel like an outcast Thursday at the Workday Charity Open in a group of three players who tested positive for the coronavirus and keep doing so. But at least he was playing. “It was fun to get out there,” Frittelli said after his 1-over 73 at Muirfield Village. “Obviously, a few hoops to jump through yesterday. It was a little tricky situation that went on. But that's fine. Life is full ofBut at least he was playing.

KORN FERRY TOUR FINALS Finals field study. In the opening round of the 2020 Workday Charity Open , Phil Mickelson makes birdie on the par-5 15th hole. Phil Mickelson hit 11 of 18 greens in regulation during his first round at the Workday Charity Open , finishing at 1 over for the tournament.

Russell Henley: Similar to Bradley, Henley can't buy a putt at the moment. He's fifth in strokes gained: tee to green and 58th in strokes gained: putting, which is odd considering Henley has always been a decent putter.

Hideki Matsuyama: The former winner at Muirfield Village is showing that his ball-striking is dialed in through three rounds, a good sign for Sunday and for next week's Memorial Tournament, which will also be played at Muirfield. Matsuyama's gone low at this course plenty of times in the past and could add another 65 at Muirfield on Sunday.
