The Best 9 Prop Bets For Golf’s St. Jude Invitational

  • Prop bets are available for the St. Jude Invitational including top 20 lines for golfers like Gary Woodland at +165 odds.
  • Other props include Jon Rahm to lead the first round at +1800, and Rory McIlory to beat Jordan Spieth on Thursday at -177.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – This week, the PGA Tour’s best will take on the challenge of TPC Southwind in Memphis for the annual WGC St. Jude Invitational.

The course plays at just over 7,200 yards with a par at 70 and an emphasis on accuracy. Players will have to be precise this week in order to avoid the big numbers.

The field is jam-packed with talent as the Tour heads into the final stretch before the PGA Championship, and Cup Playoffs.

Golf bettors have enjoyed some exciting moments since the sport returned from hiatus, with this week shaping up to be another classic.

Some of the online sportsbooks are offering prop bets for the tournament that provide some unique upside for players to finish in the top 20, as well as win the first round, and individual group matchups.

After taking a look at the odds, there are nine prop bets that look valuable for this week in golf.

Top 20 Finishers

Tyrrell Hatton (T20 +110, Win +2800)

Hatton starts off the bunch as one of the strongest players in his limited appearances since the break.

He has finished T3 and T4 in the two events he has played and has been second on Tour in shots gained from approach. That will be huge this week on a course like Southwind, and getting plus numbers for a top 20 finish seems too good to be true.

Gary Woodland (T20 +165, Win +4000)

Woodland is another player that has been completely on it since getting back on the tee. Woodland has seemingly been present on the final day in every tournament over the last few months but has narrowly avoided victory.

He is sixth in ball striking, and eight in shots gained from approach. While Woodland might not have the stuff to get the win overall, a top 20 finish seems highly probable.

Corey Connors (T20 +300, Win +10000)

Corey Connors finds himself as the featured longshot this week after playing his way to the top of some key categories. While bettors might not be too familiar with the young Canadian, Connors has performed very well since the break and is fourth on Tour in ball striking.

He has finished in the top 22 three times already since his return and could do so again at Southwind.

First Round Leader

Predicting the first-round leader is one of the more obscure lines to analyze, but with some basic intuition, here are three guys with amazing value on their golf betting odds to sit on top after Thursday.

Justin Thomas +1800

JT has played extremely well despite a weak showing at the Memorial tournament, and always seems to perform well on the first day of play. He has the perfect playstyle to come out dominating on this course.

Matthew Fitzpatrick +3300

Fitzpatrick hasn’t had the best finishes since the restart but always manages to score low in the late weekdays. He has been terrific with the putter and could see a great first round placing him at the top of the leaderboard.

Abraham Ancer +4000

One of the best stories since the break in the game has been the rise of Abraham Ancer. The Mexican youth has been a regular on the leaderboard in all of his tournaments and is usually one of the best right out of the gate. Expect Ancer to be present early and often.

Tournament Matchups

Gary Woodland -122 Over Rickie Fowler

Woodland is set to perform well this week for all of the same reasons listed above. Fowler on the other hand has been struggling in recent weeks and missed the cut the last time he played TPC Southwind.

This same prop matchup was also featured for the Memorial Tournament, where Woodland won handily.

Brooks Koepka -110 Over Dustin Johnson

Dustin Johnson has been tanking since his win a month ago at the Travelers Championship. In his two tournaments since then, DJ finished +16 at the Memorial and withdrew from the 3M Open at +7 after a first-round 78.

Koepka hasn’t been spectacular since the return but should be able to get it done against DJ.

Matthew Fitzpatrick -112 Over Tony Finau

Those who have tuned in diligently over the past few tournaments have seen Tony Finau rise to the top of the field only the unceremoniously topple back down in the final round.

Finau had the lead heading into the weekend at the Memorial and preceded to shoot a 73 and 78. He was one of the top players this past weekend at the 3M Open where he once again wasn’t able to get it done on the weekend. Expect Finau to drop significantly this week in a much stronger playing field.
