The Golf Free Picks head to Fort Worth, Texas this weekend for the Charles Schwab Challenge from Colonial Country Club and our golf experts are focusing on the below individuals for the event.

  • Brian Harman
  • Jordan Spieth
  • Denny McCarthy
Brian Harman Top 10 Finish (+350)

Harman used to be a model favorite but that hasn't been the case over the last six months. Perhaps it's the course fit or course history, but the model is back in on Harman this week. He has always had one of the best short games on the PGA TOUR and is coming off an excellent week with his irons at the PGA Championship (+5.7 strokes on approach). He clearly likes Colonial Country Club, as he's finished T31 or better in 9 of his last 10 appearances at this event (3 top-10s). He tends to play his best on short and difficult courses, so it's no surprise that he has such a good track record here. I'm betting 1 unit on the outright and 1 unit on the top 10.

Jordan Spieth Tournament Winner (+2200)

If Spieth was in slightly better form, he would be +1000 to win this event. He's played here 11 times in his career and has finished in the top 10 on 8 of those occasions. This course rewards good iron play, good scrambling, and good putting on bentgrass. Those are all strengths for Spieth. He's dealt with an injury that has impacted his approach play this year, but we should be encouraged by the fact that he gained off the tee, on approach, and around the green last week at the PGA Championship. I can't pass up this number at Spieth's happy place. I'm betting 1 unit on the outright and 1 unit on the top five.

Denny Mccarthy Top 10 Finish (+450)

I was already in on McCarthy at +5000, so I guess I have to double down now that there's a +5500 out there. The course history is scaring everyone off of him this week. I'll be honest - it's not ideal. He's only 2-for-5 at Colonial, with T27 being his best finish. However, it should be a perfect course for his game. He's accurate off the tee and one of the best scramblers on TOUR. He has been dominant on courses with bentgrass greens and has talked at length about how much he loves difficult courses. He's lost in two playoffs over the last two years, so he's real close to picking up that first win. I'm betting 1 unit on the outright and 1 unit on the top 10.


Tournament winner markets are the most commonly wagered in golf betting, simply selecting a golfer to win the event for very good value. Because the value is so high, many bettors will wager on anywhere from one to five golfers in a single event. VegasInsider provides golf Free Picks for each event, picking winners for golfers that are favored, given mid-range odds or long shots to consider.


Keen on one particular golfer outperforming another? Perhaps you’re on the Brooks Koepka team and want to bet against his nemesis Bryson DeChambeau? Regardless, VegasInsider provides the best matchup selections for golf Free Picks. Instead of picking a tournament winner, bettors will select one specific golfer to finish in a higher position than another specific golfer. This is known as matchup betting, and our experts provide top analysis on matchups for 72 holes of play, or just one round. 


From group bets to nationality winners, even winning stroke margins, there are ample golf prop bets to select from. Our VegasInsider golf experts go through the various prior markets for each event, to find you the best value in exotic wagers.
