Sanderson Farms Championship betting tips: Accurate Im bids for win
Odds and preview for this week’s PGA Tour tournament
The 2021-22 PGA Tour is in its infancy and this week is in Jackson, Mississippi, as we look at the odds to find some Sanderson Farms Championship betting tips.
The reigning champion is Sergio Garcia, who put behind him a string of indifferent form to land big odds, and this is a tournament that traditionally provides big-priced winners.
Three of the last six winners have landed triple-digit odds, although Cameron Champ was a 45/1 chance when landing the prize in 2019.
Other recent winners include Sebastian Munoz (2020), Ryan Armour (2018), Cody Gribble (2017), Peter Malnati (2016) and Nick Taylor (2015).
This course plays long at 7,460 yards and the greens are Bermuda grass.
Sam Burns has had some of his best results on Bermuda greens and heads the market at 14/1.
The 25-year-old American missed the cut here last year, but last season’s Valspar Championship winner has been posting some decent scores in recent weeks, including T2 at the St Jude Invitational and an eighth-place finish at the BMW Championship.
There are a quartet at 16/1, headed by reigning PGA Tour Rookie of the Year Will Zalatoris, who tops the greens in regulation percentage (81.94%) – albeit after one tournament of the new season – and that will be important on this course.
He was T11 at the Fortinet Championship two weeks ago and T8 at the St Jude, but this tournament was one of his three missed cuts last season.
Corey Connors, 16/1, is an accurate driver and if he gets a hot putter he would have a big chance this week. The Canadian was T17 here last year, on the back of a couple of missed cuts, and his recent form – 13-under at the Northern Trust and 14-under at the BMW Championship – suggest he should be among the front-runners.
At larger odds
Charlie Hoffman was sixth here last year and while his irons were not as hot as he would have liked last season, his approach play has improved markedly, as he underlined with a useful T22 finish at the Fortinet Championship. He is a 28/1 chance this week.
Chris Kirk (pictured above) has played well here in the past and was runner-up in 2016. He was in good early-season form, as highlighted by his T2 in the Sony Open in Hawaii, and he showed up well in the Wyndham Championship a few weeks ago with a 10-under finish. He is a 66/1 shot in the Sanderson Farms Championship betting tips.
Roger Sloan lost to Kevin Kisner in a six-man play-off at the Wyndham Championship, having shot a first-round 62. The Canadian, who shot eight-under here last year, has been in good order recently, with a T16 finish at the 3M Open and shot 13-under at the Barbasol Championship. Sloan is 80/1 to win this week.
J.T. Poston was hitting plenty of greens in regulation at the Barbasol Championship a few weeks ago and held the outright lead after the second and third rounds before falling to Seamus Power in a six-hole play-off.
He has also played well here, having shared the first-round lead with Tom Hoge in 2020 before finishing T11, and is a 125/1 chance.
Jimmy Walker has produced a couple of solid results in recent weeks – a T6 at the Memorial Tournament and a T11 at the 3M Open – and seeks a seventh PGA Tour victory at odds of 150/1.
Chesson Hadley is a 200/1 shot on the Sanderson Farms Championship betting tips list.
Runner-up at the Palmetto Championship in June, he produced a solid 15-under score at the Wyndham, firing a final-round 62 and some of his better results have come on Bermuda grass greens.
