The WGC-Cadillac Match Play will take place this week in California, which gives us another chance to make some big boy money. Let’s take a look at some of the golfers you should consider putting on this week’s card.
Patrick Reed - Not many golfers this season have been as successful as Patrick Reed, who has eight Top 25 finishes in 12 events. You take Reed’s success and put him in one-on-one play in this tournament, and you have to like his chances to be the last guy standing. Patrick Reed also showed just how great he can be in match play, as he was the go-to guy for the US last year in the Ryder Cup. You can currently get Reed with odds of +2000, which makes him probably the best bet of the week.

Harris English - One of the biggest long shots on the board is going to be Harris English, with odds of +10000. While English has finished 29th or worse in three straight events, he does have three Top 10 finishes this season and has failed to make the cut just four times in 14 tournaments. Harris is one of those golfers who has a game that’s built for match play and he continues to show bright spots in his career at the young age of 25 year’s old. Harris English is worth a shot in the dark this week.
Jimmy Walker - We’re getting Jimmy Walker with odds of +3300, which is an automatic must take. Walker has been one of the top golfers all season long, as he has five Top 10 finishes in 11 events, which includes victories in the Texas Open and Sony Open. Walker is one of the top drivers in this field and is second on the PGA tour in birdie average. Jimmy Walker has given us no reason not to back him this season and in this style of play, his current odds make him a no-brainer this week.
Rory McIlroy - If we’re going to include a favorite this week, it has to be Rory McIlroy. McIlroy was runner-up in this tournament back in 2012 when he lost to Hunter Mahan, and he’s coming off a strong performance at this year’s Masters. McIlroy, of course, has a strong history of performing well in round robin play and has three Top 25 finishes in four events this season. You can get McIlroy with odds of +900, which you can’t beat when you’re talking one of the top golfers in the world.
