Valspar Championship Betting Tips
Gary Woodland won here in 2011 and is in the form to repeat the feat.

Innisbrook Resort (Copperhead Course)

Favourite Watch

Justin Thomas and Henrik Stenson share the favourite tag this week at 11/1  but behind them I think Ryan Moore  is great odds at 28/1 for those who love the win only market. He's been third and fifth in the last two stagings and comes in off a T28 in Mexico.

Doc's Top 5 Best Each Way Bets At The Valspar

Tip 1: Gary Woodland 28/1

Mexico was too tight for Gary but he laughed it off because he's knows this is the week he thinks he can win.  T2 at The Honda and T5 at Pebble suggest he's in the same type of form as when he edged out Webb Simpson to win here in 2011. Mixed bag since punctuated by a T8 in 2014 but nailed on to contend this time around.

Tip 2: Bill Haas 30/1

Last week in Mexico Billy needed 125 putts. In Riviera he needed 105!  Let's hope he can put that to one side at The Valspar where he lost out to Charl Schwartzel in a playoff last year.  Before that T32 finish in Mexico Billy had six straight top-20's and I expect him to be right up there again this week.

Tip 3: Wes Bryan 50/1

The guys that make their way over from Mexico City to Innisbrook Resort will have endured a mentally taxing week there and Wes Bryan, who didn't make the WGC field, could spy vantage. He comes in rested and fresh  after T4's at PGA National and Riviera. If Gary Woodland could win on his debut here, so can Wes!

Tip 4: Jason Dufner 50/1

Will this week see the second coming of Jason Dufner? I've been watching him of late and he's lurking.  T23 in Mexico, T14 at The Honda and T25 at the Career Builder shouts consistency but Dufner is a proven winner and given the right track he can feature. Is Copperhead the right track? Eight consecutive top-30's say maybe?

Tip 5: Graham DeLaet 45/1

Great to see Graham back at the business end of the PGA Tour after his battle with the dreaded yips last year and he comes in off a solo 10th at The Honda, T17 at Riviera and T9 in Phoenix.  Loves this course, shot a 62 here in 2013 and was T5 and T8 on his last two visits.
