Last week we won big with Matthew Fitzpatrick (+3000 at FOX Bet) at the RBC Heritage. Let’s see if we can replicate the magic as we turn our attention to TPC Louisiana for the Zurich Classic.
The Pete Dye-designed course is a par-72 measuring 7,425 yards. This event has a wrinkle with a unique format that features team play, not stroke play.
Patrick Cantlay-Xander Schauffele they are heavy betting favorites to win the tournament, +300 at FOX Bet.
Now that we’ve started with the basics, let’s get into the favorites and my absolute portfolio for this tournament.

Odds for the completed field at FOX Bet
It’s hard not to love Cantlay and Schauffele this week. Even though they are the best squad on paper, this is an event to play some bets on because of the format. Here are some other teams worth investing a few bucks to win it all.
Mitchell & Im +1300 on FOX Bet
This is one of the more balanced teams in the event, and this course plays to the strengths of both golfers. The metrics are also in their favor. According to Data Golf, both players rank in the top 20 in tee-to-green games over the past 50 rounds. Im is hitting the ball very well and enters this tournament with a seventh-place finish last week, his sixth consecutive top-25 finish.
Fitzpatrick and Fitzpatrick +3000 at FOX Bet
I’m going back to the Fitz well this week. Chemistry goes a long way in a team format, and if you’ve watched Netflix Full operation, you know these brothers share a special bond. Not much else to say about Matthew, other than he showed why he’s one of the best golfers in the world last weekend, going head to head with Jordan Spieth and winning. Alex has finished in the top 25 in his last four OWGR events.
Joel Dahmen and Denny McCarthy +3500 at FOX Bet
There was a nicer character Full operation what Dahmen? He has pure talent and team play could be the perfect, relaxed setting for his style. Their skill sets also complement each other, where Dahmen has the tee-to-green game, while McCarthy is one of the better putters.
David Lipsky and Aaron Rai +5000 at FOX Bet
These two partnered here last year and finished tied for fourth. Rai enters this event quietly on fire, having won tee-to-green strokes in seven straight starts and 12 of his last 13. Both putters are suspect, which is why you’re taking such long odds. But, if even one of them can get it going, they have a chance to make a run.
I just lost: Theegala & Suh
