Let’s take a look at the PGA Waste Management Phoenix Open Betting Picks and Tips:

Jordan Spieth

Jordan Spieth is the favorite to win the event in Scottsdale Arizona. It’s a little unclear why the young stud is the favorite, but it’s hard to go wrong with Spieth. Spieth has not won an event in a while, but seems to always be around when the final day gets here. The 23 year old is seeking his 9th career win, and 43rd Top 10 finish. Jordan Spieth is listed 7.5/1 to win the event.

Patrick Rodgers

Patrick Rodgers is second on the odds list. Rodgers is listed at 8/1. The 24 year old from Avon Indiana has really emerged, despite being ranked 165th in the world. Rodgers has never won a tournament, despite playing in 62 events. He has made over $2M in earnings, and has been a Top 10 monster. He is seeking his 8th Top 10 finish of his career.

Hideki Matsyuama

The defending champion Hideki Matsyuama from Japan comes into the event third in the odds to win. The 24 year old is currently ranked 6th in the world. He is second in the FedEx cup with more than 1,190 points. Matsyuama ranks third around the green, and his scoring average is third in the early going. He is seeking his 4th career title, and 27th finish inside the Top 10, in 88 events played.

Justin Thomas

Justin Thomas is red hot, and fourth on the list to win. Thomas as moved to 8th in the overall world ranking, and right now is first in the FedEx Cup Rankings. The University of Alabama golfer is Top 10 in Off the Tee, Approach the Green, Tee to Green, Scoring Average and Distance Driving. Thomas has won 3 events this season, and 4 in his career. Thomas has made more than $10M as a professional golfer.

Phil Mickelson

The course record for this event belongs to Phil Mickelson. He comes into the event listed at 32/1. That’s 11th. When we are making a pick for this event, we are going with a slight underdog, and going to take the lefty – Phil Mickelson. The 46 year old from San Diego is 59th in the FedEx Cup standings, but with his 42 career wins, and his history here – it’s hard to not take his odds at 32/1.

Best of luck and enjoy the 2017 Waste Management Open!
