2017 Pebble Beach Pro Am Betting Preview

Fresh from successfully tipping Hideki Matsuyama to win the Phoenix Open last week, the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am takes centre stage on the PGA Tour this week and the threat of wet and windy conditions should make for an intriguing four days at what is always a popular betting heat. Featuring three different venues, each golfer will play a round on the Pebble Beach Golf Links, Spyglass Hill Golf Club and the Shore Course at Monterey Peninsula during the opening three days before the 54-hole cut and a final round at Pebble Beach...

  • Phil Mickelson has won the Pebble Beach Pro Am four times
  • Dustin Johnson won the Pebble Beach Pro Am in 2009 and 2010

The Head Of The Market

Dustin Johnson perhaps still has a bit of unfinished business with Pebble Beach following his meltdown there during the 2010 US Open and he is a worthy 8/1 favourite this week. The American won the Pebble Beach Pro Am back-to-back in 2009 and 2010, while he was also runner-up in 2014, and he is the man to beat, albeit his price is a bit short for the purposes of our preview.

Jordan Spieth is next best at 9/1 after racking up four consecutive top-tens since winning in Australia and he has never finished outside of the top-25 in four appearances at the Pebble Beach Pro Am, finishing 4th in 2014 and 7th in 2015.

Jason Day is then a 12/1 shot and he has finished in the top-fifteen in five of seven outings in this event, with a best of 4th in 2015, but his recent injury issues ensure the world number one doesn't make great appeal at the prices.

The Pick Of The Favourites

We prefer to side with Justin Rose for our first selection though as the English star tied 6th on his debut in this tournament twelve months ago and it is worth noting that he ranked 5th for putting average during the week. His putting has let him down at times but he looks focused and in the groove so far during 2017, finishing runner-up at Waialae and tied 4th at Torrey Pines, and we fancy he is decent value to produce the goods here.

The threat of bad weather on Friday won't worry the Englishman and if he can be in contention come the weekend when conditions are expected to be calmer then he looks primed to build on his fine recent form with a win. 
Tip #1: Justin Rose (each way) @ 16/1 with Ladbrokes.

Horse For The Course

One man knows better than most about winning Pebble Beach as Phil Mickelson has won the title four times and he is the all-time leading money winner in this tournament. 'Lefty', who has developed into a fine links golfer,  has been solid if unspectacular during a decent start to 2017 that has seen him secure three successive top-25 finishes and we fancy him to use those results as a platform for glory, particularly as he looks to bury the memories of last year's runner-up finish at Pebble Beach.
Tip #2: Phil Mickelson (each way) @ 20/1 with Ladbrokes.com.

Reed To Sparkle

Finally, Patrick Reed has been very consistent in his four previous appearances in this tournament as he has gone 7-13-29-6 and we fancy him to produce a career-best effort at Pebble Beach. The weather won't overly worry The Barclays winner as he has shown an aptitude for performing when the chips are down and the USA's rising Ryder Cup talisman is a player who is improving on links courses.

Reed opened this year with successive top-fifteen finishes prior to a tie for 68th in Phoenix, where the course was never likely to suit, and he will be relishing the chance to get back to a format that looks to be a perfect fit for the confident American.
Tip #3: Patrick Reed (each way) @ 33/1 with Betfred.
