The Line: See the Latest Odds
The 2014 Canadian Open takes place this week and creates plenty of chances for us to make money. With many of the big names taking a break for The Open, this event is anybody’s game and the favorites open up with odds of +1200.
With that said, here’s a few names you should include on your card for this week.
USA TODAY Sports
Charl Schwartzel – It may be time to jump on the Charl Schwartzel bandwagon after the way he just played in The Open. Schwartzel had his best performance of the season last week, shooting a -11 and finishing tied for seventh in the tournament. Schwartzel has actually been pretty impressive for much of the season, finishing in the Top 10 in four of his 12 events and in the Top 25 in eight of those events. Schwartzel has finished -6 or better in three of his last four courses and is starting to find his groove a little bit. Of course, Schwartzel’s only PGA tour victory came in the 2011 Masters Tournament, but with the way he’s playing and the fact we’re getting odds of +1800, I can’t turn that down.
Brandt Snedeker - Brandt Snedeker is the defending champion at the Canadian Open, and we’re getting him at +2500 to defend his title. Do I really need to say anymore? Granted, Snedeker has only two Top 10 finishes in 19 played events this season and hasn’t even really come close to winning anything since that victory last year. Snedeker also hasn’t shot below par since the Travelers Championship back in mid-June. However, the Canadian Open does have a history of producing multiple winners, including Jim Furyk, Nick Price and Curtis Strange. Why not Snedeker? If there’s any course for him to feel comfortable at, it’s this one after just winning it last year with a -16.
Charley Hoffman – The biggest dark horse for this week is Charley Hoffman, who is coming with odds of +3000 to win the tournament. Hoffman has only five Top 10 finishes in 20 events this season and hasn’t won since the 2010 Deutsche Bank Championship. However, Hoffman has quietly been playing some good golf, shooting under par in five of his last seven events. He’s seem to have found his rhythm a little bit and could be poised to have possibly his best outing of the season this weekend. Hoffman is going to be one of the best drivers in this event and it’s well worth a shot to throw a little something on him with those odds.
