2017 Genesis Open Betting Preview

The PGA Tour heads to the Riviera Country Club in California for The Genesis Open from Thursday and we fancy Dustin Johnson to finally take the title at a tournament that has remained elusive during his wonderful career to date....

  • Dustin Johnson's last 8 results at the Riviera Country Club - 10--3-MC-4-MC-2-2-4
  • Phil Mickelson is the leading money earner in this tournament (Winner in 2008 and 2009, Runner-Up in 2007 and 2012)
16th February - 19th February Odds Won/Lost Bet

DJ To Spin A Winning Tune

Johnson has finished in the top-ten in six of his past eight appearances at this tournament, which was formerly known as the Northern Trust Open, and five of those were top-five finishes. The American could replace Jason Day as world number one if things go his way this week and the benefit of experience of this 7,322 yard course shouldn't be underestimated as it is tough to find greens, while recent results would suggest that it is a venue that suits the big hitters on the tour.

Johnson certainly has form in the book too as he has won three of his past fifteen starts worldwide, going 3-6-2-MC-3 in his past five following a fine effort at Pebble Beach last week and even the missed cut during that run can be forgiven as it came after a long flight from Abu Dhabi, where he finished runner-up.
Tip #1: Dustin Johnson (each way) @ 9/1 with Betfred.

The Other Leading Contenders

It is Jordan Spieth who is an 8/1 favourite this week after going 3-3-9-Won during 2017 and he did finish tied 4th at Riviera in 2015, although he has missed the cut in two of his four visits here.

The in-form Hideki Matsuyama (10/1) can be backed at 10/1 and the FedEx Cup points leader has finished in the top-25 in all three appearances at Riviera, with a best of tied 4th from 2015.

Great Scott

Our next selection is the ultra-consistent Adam Scott as the 2005 champion has racked up five top-20s in his last seven appearances at Riviera, including a runner-up effort to Bubba Watson last year. Scott has made his past 22 cuts worldwide and has finished no worse than tied 14th in each of his last five outings. Recent form and course efforts indicate that the Australian should go close.
Tip #2: Adam Scott (each way) @ 22/1 with Betfred.com.

The Pick Of The Each-Way Bets

Finally, Keegan Bradley tied 4th at the Farmers Insurance Open recently and he can build on that effort at the Genesis Open, where he has secured top-20s in each of his last four visits, including a runner-up effort in 2012 and a tie for 4th in 2015.
Tip #3: Keegan Bradley (each way) @ 80/1 with Sky Bet.
