2019 Sentry Tournament of Champions Betting Tips

January 3rd – 6th, 2019
Plantation Course at Kapalua, Kapalua, Maui, Hawaii
Par: 73 / Yardage: 7,452
Purse: $6.5 Million with $1,300,000 to the winner
Defending Champion: Dustin Johnson

I'm not going to do a full betting preview for this weeks 34 man TOC event at Kapalua but I've had a look down through the betting and picked two guys I think could feature each way at decent odds.

Remember "each way" ordinarily pays out (a quarter of the odds) if the player finishes in the top-4.  I generally don't tip the favourite pre-tournament; in this case its defending champ Dustin Johnson at 5/1.  If either of my tips below fail to win but finish in the top-4 the return will still be greater than if Dustin wins!

Tip 1: Pat Reed 16/1

Will be overlooked in favour of the bombers on a resort course but odds of 16/1 each way are super for Pat Reed.  Winner here in 2015, runner up in defending a year later and T6 when he last played here in 2017.  Has the natural golfing ability to get out of the blocks early and to successfully scramble where others will struggle. T2 last time out in Dubai and has to be on your betslip.

Tip 2: Webb Simpson 22/1

Hasn't played in the event since 2014 but regains his place in the elite field after winning the 2018 Players Championship. With two top-3 finishes at Kapalua from three previous he'll be determined to do well on his return. Third last time out at the RSM Classic and I think 2019 will be another big year for Webb.

Tip 2: Brandt Snedeker 55/1

This tip could go either way but a wise man once said to me "watch out for players with new caddies or new equipment." Sneds will be in the latter category this week with whispers of a break from Bridgestone. Has three top-10's from five starts at the event including a T3 in 2016.  Missed last years edition so will also be keen to get out of the blocks early and make his money during the West Coast Swing.
