DETROIT – Not only does the Rocket Mortgage Classic begin on Thursday, but there are also Olympic qualifiers for basketball as well as the continuation of Wimbledon.

Look no further for the best value betting picks of the day.

Rocket Mortgage Classic First Round 3-Ball

The Rocket Mortgage Classic has proven to be won by golfers who rank well in strokes gained putting and strokes gained tee-to-green. Bryson DeChambeau and Nate Lashley, the last two winners at the event, both ranked second in the field in strokes gained putting while they ranked third and fourth in the field in strokes gained tee-to-green.

Assuming this trend holds up, online sportsbooks may see a couple of big underdogs win their 3-ball bets. One of which could be Jason Kokrak.

First Round 3 Ball Betting Odds

  • Patrick Reed +155
  • Webb Simpson +165
  • Jason Kokrak +200

This season, Kokrak ranks second on tour in strokes gained putting while Simpson ranks 20th and Reed places eighth.

Kokrak does fall behind in strokes gained too-to-green, but considering this is a first-round bet only, golf betting fans should acknowledge that Kokrak has the third-best scoring average in opening rounds (69.22).

Patrick Reed is a formidable opponent and has a great shot and being the leader in this group, but the +200 odds on Kokrak is well worth the risk.
