We know that college football and the NFL are on the top of everyone's mind since it's now October. However, don't forget about the PGA Tour. The money won in golf is just as green as money won on the gridiron.
Here are 8 best bets we love for the 2023 Sanderson Farms Championship. We're targeting 3 full tournament head-to-heads and 5 prop bets. Good luck!
After missing the cut here in 2018, Streelman has had success at the Sanderson Farms Championship. He followed that missed cut up with a 4th place finish in 2019. Last year, he shot well enough to grab a Top 25 finish.
Alex Noren has not competed at this event in the last 5 years. It took Noren until mid-November last season to get going.
He finished outside the Top 25 in 4 straight events in 2022 before finally breaking through at the Houston Open where he finished 4th. We like the plus money value we are getting here on Streelman who has been successful here over recent years.
This play is pretty much a no-brainer. Could it be a trap? It absolutely could be, but we simply cannot pass this up.
We are getting last year’s champion in Mackenzie Hughes at plus money against Sam Stevens who finished 67th last year in his Sanderson Farms debut. Both missed the cut at the Wyndham in August and have since had mediocre finishes.
Hughes has the chops to get this done so plus money in a simple matchup is a must play.
Carson Young is coming off a solid 19th place finish at the Fortinet Championship while Stallings struggled to a 56th place finish. Stallings did finish better than Young at the previous tournament (Wyndham Championship).
In his debut last season, Young finished 77th here at the Sanderson. For Stallings, the veteran has made the cut here 4 of the last 5 years and is coming off a 13th place finish last season.
We believe Stallings ability to play well here and Young’s inexperience will bode well for us in this matchup.
Despite missing the cut at the Fortinet Championship, Hoofman finished tied 12th in his previous tournament, the Wyndham. Here at the Sanderson Farms, Hoffman has yet to finish outside the Top 40.
Two years ago, he finished 39th after finishing 6th the year before and 23rd the year before that. We are getting a good price here on a position that Hoffman always seems find a way inside.
After falling outside the Top 40 in 2018, Buckley has since gone on to fins success here at the Sanderson. In 2021 he was able to find his way inside the Top 5 and last year, in the Top 20.
Buckley missed the cut in 4 previous events leading up to the FedEx St. Jude. Granted, he only finished 52nd but it was a starting point. We like him to follow up with a Top 40 finish here.
Knox had a nice start to his season at the Fortinet Championship. He shot 7 under and finished 30th for the tournament.
Over the last 2 years, Knox has finished not only inside the Top 40 here at the Sanderson, but inside the Top 30. We like him to make it 3 years in a row inside the Top 40 at the Sanderson.
Frittelli has 2 Top 20 finishes at the Sanderson Farms Championship over the past 4 years. He has not had the greatest form missing cut after cut.
That said, the value here is just far too much to pass up on. We do not recommend laying your normal unit size here but between ¼ and ½ your normal play is worth the risk here.
Between May and June, Pan had been playing very well. He grabbed a 4th place finish and a 3rd place finish during that stretch. Unfortunately, it has been a tough road since then.
However, at the Sanderson, he has finished 11th and 12th over the last 3 years. Last year he fell outside the Top 60 but we believe he can find his way inside the Top 20 once again here.
