Last week, Dustin Johnson went nuclear on Saturday, carding a career best on his way to winning the Traveler’s Championship. Unfortunately, DJ wasn’t on our card, so we took a loss, bringing down our overall profit on the year to +13.41 units.
This week we attempt to get back in the winner’s circle, with the Rocket Mortgage Classic. With only one year of course history, it’s more difficult to find the stats that we are looking for, but a few things jump out at me this week.
Strokes gained tee to green looks to be a pretty big deal, as it usually is. Par 3’s and 5’s don’t seem to be where the leaders last year gained too many strokes, so I want to concentrate on guys who are good at approach shots for the par 4’s.
This field is by far the weakest we have seen since the PGA has returned, so the question becomes, which favorite do we like the most. We are going to have to allocate a big portion of our units this week if we play a favorite, as their odds aren’t great. Spoiler alert, we love a favorite. Bryson Dechambeau has been playing out of his mind, and I think this is the week he breaks through for a win.
Below is a refresher on how I am allocating my bets this week, and who I like to take down the Rocket Mortgage Classic.
As far as betting, I’ll keep track of the overall performance for the year each week. The important thing to understand is that betting on golf is hard. Most weeks we are going to lose, but one winning week, can make up for multiple losing weeks. I’m taking a long term approach, and hoping to finish the season up. As you will see, we are going to spread our money out to multiple players, and hopefully grind out a profit.
Each week, I am going to put one unit in play. That unit is going to be divided up between all the players I want to bet on. This unit can be whatever you feel comfortable losing in a week, but should remain consistent throughout the season. If you move the amount all over the place each week, your chances of profiting decrease quite a bit. With that being said, let’s take a look at who I’m targeting to take down this event.
Let’s get back in the winner’s circle!
