Justin Thomas (+1100)
It’s time to jump on the Justin Thomas bandwagon. After Thomas had one of the worst career starts last year, he’s back with a vengeance in 2024. Thomas is coming off a T-3 at the American Express and a T-6 at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
He’s historically played well at TPC Scottsdale, with four top-10 finishes in his past five starts here. Thomas is third in strokes gained per round at TPC Scottsdale and gains nearly two and a half strokes on approach at Pebble Beach.
At TPC Scottsdale, he’s had a good putting history, running in the top 20 in the field throughout his career.
Byeong Hun An (+3300)
TPC Scottsdale is a very long course which is fitting for Byeong Hun An who has a lot of distance off the tee. His putter has been on fire this year and has played very well.
The Korean has two top-five finishes this year and finished T31 at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. He’s top 10 this year putting from five-to-15 feet on the Tour.
Hideki Matsuyama (+4500)
Despite what he’s priced at, Hideki Matsuyama loves the Phoenix Open and could offer bettors some added value this week. He’s a two-time champion at the Phoenix Open and has five other finishes of T16 or better.
TPC Scottsdale is a familiar course that Matsuyama knows very well. Even last year when he lost nearly five strokes on approach, Matsuyama still found a way to crack the top 30. He’s fresh off at T13th at the Farmers Insurance Open and should be in great form to contend at the Phoenix Open.
