2020 Workday Charity Open odds: Surprising PGA picks, best predictions from model that nailed six majors

2020 Workday Charity Open odds: Surprising PGA picks, best predictions from model that nailed six majors

The 2020 Workday Charity Open will provide spectators with star-studded groupings through the first two days of action. Justin Thomas, who’s recorded two wins on tour this season, will play alongside Brooks Koepka and Jason Day when the action gets underway on Thursday from Muirfield Village Golf Club. Thomas, a 12-time PGA Tour champion, enters this week’s event as the Vegas favorite at 11-1 according to the latest 2020 Workday Charity Open odds.

Meanwhile, Jordan Spieth will be paired with Phil Mickelson and Patrick Cantlay, who hasn’t missed a cut in 15 starts since the 2019 Zurich Classic. Cantlay also finished on top of the leaderboard in his last start at Muirfield Village. Thursday’s 2020 Workday Charity Open tee times show the trio heading to hole No. 1 at 1:10 p.m. ET. Before locking in your 2020 Workday Charity Open picks or entering any PGA DFS tournaments on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel, be sure to see the golf predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

SportsLine’s prediction model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, is coming off yet another win, calling Bryson DeChambeau the outright winner at the Rocket Mortgage Classic last week. It has also nailed two of the last three majors entering the weekend. It predicted Gary Woodland’s first career major championship at the U.S. Open even though he wasn’t the favorite entering the weekend. The result: Woodland held off a late charge from Brooks Koepka and won by three strokes. The model also called Koepka’s historic victory at the 2019 PGA Championship, predicting he’d hold his lead in the home stretch.

In all, the advanced computer model has nailed a whopping six majors entering the weekend. This season, the model called Justin Thomas (15-2) winning the CJ Cup, Rory McIlroy (11-2) taking down the WGC-HSBC Champions and Viktor Hovland (11-1) earning his first career PGA Tour victory at the Puerto Rico Open.

McClure also returned a whopping +788 during the 2020 Charles Schwab Challenge, including nailing top-five bets on Xander Schauffele +650 and Collin Morikawa +900. Additionally, the model was extremely high on 30-1 long shot winner Webb Simpson at the RBC Heritage. The model had him in the top five from the start and McClure’s best bets included Simpson winning outright. Those who followed that advice saw a whopping +3000 return. Anyone who has followed his golf picks has seen huge returns.

The model’s top 2020 Workday Charity Open predictions 

One huge shocker the model is calling for at the Workday Charity Open 2020: Brooks Koepka, a four-time major champion and one of the top Vegas favorites at 14-1, stumbles big-time and doesn’t even crack the top 10. Koepka showed signs of a turnaround when he finished seventh at the RBC Heritage a couple weeks back, but he hasn’t been consistent enough this season to trust at these odds.

In seven PGA Tour events this season, he’s missed the cut twice and withdrawn once. Outside of his top-10 finish at the RBC Heritage, his best finish among the events he finished is 32nd at the Charles Schwab Challenge. He ranks No. 192 on tour in driving accuracy percentage (54.22) and No. 176 in greens-in-regulation percentage (64.90). Those alarming stats make him one of the 2020 Workday Charity Open favorites to avoid this week. 

Another surprise: Viktor Hovland, a massive 22-1 long shot, makes a strong run at the title. He has a much better chance to win it all than his odds imply, so he’s a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. Hovland enters the Workday Open 2020 hitting the ball extremely well off the tee, averaging over 300 yards per drive this season. The 22-year-old ranks 35th on the PGA Tour in greens in regulation percentage (70.17), which helped him secure his first career PGA Tour victory earlier this season at the Puerto Rico Open.

In addition, Hovland has finished in the top 25 in his four starts since the PGA Tour resumed play. And with a scoring average of 70.054, which ranks 18th on tour, Hovland is one of the top value picks who can climb the 2020 Workday Charity Open leaderboard.

Also, the model says four other golfers with odds of 22-1 or longer will make a strong run at the title, including an astronomical long shot going off higher than 35-1. Anyone who backs these underdogs could hit it big. You can only see them here.
