With the 2016 PGA Golf season moving on this weekend from the 10th through the 13th of March 2016, we have the 2016 Valspar Championship with the tournament being played at Palm Harbor, Florida on the famous Innisbrook golf course and the tournament has a stake of $6.1 million for this World-Class Golf field and the winner taking some $1.098 Million and 500 FedEx Cup points as the top prize in this 2016 Valspar Championship.
So if you’re a fan who will Bet on Golf at the likes of SBG Global then continue reading as we take a look at this tournament as some favorites and possible sleeper values for your wagering information.
The favorites for this tournament are J. Speith and P. Reed and that should not be a surprise to fans since they are 2 of the highest ranked players in this Valspar event, and add to that, that they both love playing this course.
Coming into this tournament J. Speith’s odds are at +500 to take this title as last season he had a very dramatic win here at the Valspar. He won last year in extra holes, with a 30 foot birdie on the 3rd he took the title, and if you remember back in 2013 as a teenager he finished tied for 7th at this Valspar.
Last year Reed almost won this tournament as he lost to Speith in their three man playoff, after he shot a 66 on the last round of the game, with a 31 on the last nine holes. To date this season in his ultimate 7 starts he has been in the top 6 some 3 times to date. Since he is playing well, and with a lot of experience on this course we can expect him to be a contender this weekend at this 2016 Valspar.
Next we have 2 Sleepers whom some say are high valued in K, Choi and J. Dufner and we start with K. Choi with odds of +3,300 who recently has been playing exceptionally well as in his ultimate 4 tournaments he has 3 top 20’s to date, and that includes a 2nd at the Farmers Open and a tie for 5th in February at the Northern Trust. That’s and amazing comeback for a golf player that did not finish in the top ten one time last season. He attributes his performance this season to his play in his putting game. Presently he ranks 26th in the PGA on strokes gained from putting. That should help him on this course and its tricky greens. Choi in past Valspar’s he won the title in 2002 and in 2010 was 2nd.
Another sleeper who appears ready for this 2016 Valspar is J. Dufner with +3,000 odds who cherishes playing the Innisbrook, and that can be seen in the fact that in the ultimate 7 Valspar events Dufner has been in the top 30. This season his game has improved with a big win in January 2016 at the Career Builder Challenge, and most recently he placed 11th at the WGC Cadillac.
Last but not least is Long Shot V. Singh at +10,000 odds, this 53 year old golfer could surprise us all this weekend at the Valspar, as last season he tied at 10th shooting a 4 under par 279. In this tournament Singh has the scoring record with a total of 266 and 18 under par when he won this tournament back in 2004. That plus this season his golf performance has improved as in the Honda Classic his last match to date he was tied for 6th.
The online sportsbook prediction for this 2016 Valspar tournament is that favorite P. Reed overtakes his opponents and wins this 2016 Valspar Championship from Palm Harbor, Florida this weekend.
