The PGA TOUR moves to the Dallas-Fort Worth area this week for the Charles Schwab Challenge  at Colonial Country Club.


Each week we'll take a look at the best round matchups to try and build up a nice bankroll.

Abraham Ancer (-120) vs. Si Woo Kim (-110): Bet the favorite in this head-to-head matchup, as Ancer is the play. He has fared well in the Driving Accuracy Percentage (68.75 percent), Par 4 Scoring Average (3.97) and Putts Per Round (28.63) categories. He made the cut last season, and was headed for a big finish before posting a 3-over 73 on Sunday to tumble down the leaderboard.

Jordan Spieth (+105) vs. Francesco Molinari (-135): The Texas native Spieth is worth a roll of the dice in his home state, especially as a short 'dog. He has made the cut in five consecutive events, including a third-place showing at the PGA Championship last weekend at Bethpage Black, and an impressive 21st-place showing in the first major of the season at Augusta National in the Masters.

Jordan Spieth (-115) vs. Xander Schauffele (-115): Vegas sonsiders this one a coin-flip situation, but again, Spieth is finally looking like he is snapping out of his season-long slumber. Schauffele missed the cut at this even last season, too.

Russell Knox (-125) vs. Charley Hoffman (-105): Hoffman posted a 54th-place finish at the PGA Championship last week, and he is looking for a turnaround at Colonial. It might not come, however, as he has posted a dismal 58.17 percent Driving Accuracy Percentage while ranking 62nd on Tour in Strokes Gained: Putting and 149th in Par 4 Scoring Average. Hoffman doesn't seem to perform very well in key stats necessary for success in the past at this event, so look for Knox to slip by him in a head-to-head matchup.

Last event (PGA Championship): 1-3 (-250)
This season: 12-21-2 (-1140)


Top 20 Finish - Louis Oosthuizen (+115): If you're looking for a decent value for Top-20 Finish candidates, the South African is your man. He checks off all of the boxes for success at Colonial, posting a 67.12 percent Driving Accuracy Percentage, while checking in 25th on Tour in Par 4 Scoring Average (3.98).

Top 20 Finish - Abraham Ancer (+260): Based on Ancer's stats, he is a decent Top-20 value. He enters with a lot of confidence after a 16th-place showing at Bethpage Black last week.

Top 20 Finish - Corey Conners (+325): An even stronger value play is Conners, who was a winner at the Valero Texas Open in his most recent showing in the great state of Texas. As long as he can overcome his inconsistencies on the putting surface then Conners might overcome.

Last week: 0-4 (-470)
This season: 13-24 (-683)
