2015 Frys.com Open Betting Preview And Tips
Thursday Oct 15 - Sunday Oct 18, 2015
Silverado CC (North) • Napa, CA

Favourite’s Discussion

With Rory McIlroy (4/1) making the trip out to the Napa Valley there was only going to be one favourite this week.  But for me the real man to look out for in the “win only” betting market is Hideki Matsuyama at 14/1.  Hideki has been on a good run since The Barclays and has the straight hitting game (T8 in fairways hit) to do even better than his T3 last year.

Doc’s Top Five  Players To Watch

Justin Thomas 35/1

Came close at the John Deere and Quicken Loans and went 11 under for the par-4’s on his way to T13 last time out at the BMW Championship.  Missed the cut here last year, but in better form now.  See how he’s going Friday night.

Tony Finau 33/1

Did me proud on several occasions last year, with 16 top-25’s finishes for the season.  Had a tremendous run up to The Barclays and he cannot be blamed for a slight tail off after.  T12 here last year and for a huge hitter, was very impressive on the greens.   Spotted in New York yesterday but should get to the first tee in time!

Brooks Koepka 16/1

Brooks’ T2 at the Alfred Dunhill was a real show of force, clocking up an average of 332 yards off the tee while hitting 65 of 72 greens for the week.  T8 at Silverado last season and T3 at Corde Vale before that is a tidy Frys.com form line and though the 2015 season proved winless, that could and should change this week.  This guy is destined for great things.

Steven Bowditch 66/1

Got a lot of golf in last week at the Presidents Cup and that could be a good or bad thing.  If in the mood though Bowditch has the game for Silverado as he proved last season powering up the leaderboard after an opening 73 to finish solo second.   The best putter in the field then, coming off a T12 at the Tour Championship and win at the Byron Nelson, Bowditch is a super bet at 66/1.

Brendon Todd 70/1

Johnny Miller has played a large part in the development of Silverado and referred to the greens being “as fast as Augusta.”  So if it’s a good putter you’re after, take a look at Brendon Todd this week.  Two top-25’s in his last three starts may not seem that great, but he’s been in the top-6 putters in each event.  Debut on the course, but I’m thinking he will love it.
