  • The 2019 Wyndham Championship tees off Thursday, August 1st
  • Bovada has made Webb Simpson, the 2011 champion, a +900 favorite
  • Defending champion Brandt Snedeker has the fifth-best odds at +2200

A past winner of the Wyndham Championship is given the best odds of winning this PGA Tour stop in 2019. However, it’s not the most-recent winner of the event.

Bovada has established Webb Simpson as +900 chalk to win the Wyndham Championship, which he did previously in 2011.

Defending champion Brandt Snedeker was made the fifth betting choice at +2200.

Plenty Of Depth In Field

Snedeker is actually a two-time winner here. He was also the Wyndham Championship title holder in 2007. Although his form of late has hardly been spectacular, Snedeker always seems to bring out his A-game at this event.

Simpson comes back to the place where he won eight years ago off a runner-up finish at Memphis. He was second here last year, and third in 2017. Currently 13th in the FedEx Cup standings, Simpson has finished second in two of his last four tournaments and cracked the top 20 in six of his last eight events.

Si Woo Kim was 2016 champion of this event but his current form makes it difficult to back him as a serious contender. He’s missed the cut in nine of his last 10 tournaments. Patrick Reed won the 2013 Wyndham Championship and looks to be finding a groove. The 2018 Masters champion has cracked the top 12 in three of his last four tournaments.

Whoever takes the tournament will need to go low. The last three Wyndham Championship winners all finished below 20-under par.

Keep An Open Foreign Policy

Snedeker’s triumph last year ended a two-year over the tournament by international players. Sweden’s Henrik Stenson won in 2017, preceded by the success of South Korea’s Kim in 2016.

Colombia’s Camilo Villegas (2014), Spain’s Sergio Garcia (2012), India’s Arjun Atwal (2010) and Sweden’s Carl Pettersson (2008) are other foreign winners of the Wyndham Championship over the past decade. There haven’t been back-to-back American winners since Davis Love III (2006) and Snedeker (2007).

This year’s field is also rich with international contenders. England’s Paul Casey, currently eighth in FedEx Cup standings, has a win among six top tens this season. Norway’s Viktor Hovland shows five top-16 finishes in his last six starts. England’s Luke Donald was runner-up here in 2012. Chile’s Joaquin Niemann has recorded three top 10s in his last five tourneys.

2019 Wyndham Championship Best Value Picks

  1. Webb Simpson (+900): Yes, he’s the favorite but you can’t ignore how successful he’s been here.
  2. Viktor Hovland (+2500): The Norwegian’s consistency has to pay off soon in a victory.
  3. Chez Reavie (+4000): Another consistent performer. He was third at the US Open, won the Travelers Championship and has recorded five top-10 performances this season.
