After an incredible showing at the WM Phoenix Open which ended in a three-hole playoff between Patrick Cantlay and now, first-time PGA Tour winner Scottie Scheffler, the tour heads to the iconic Riviera Country club for the 2022 Genesis Invitational. The Genesis Invitational concludes the west coast swing with another stacked field. A field that features all the 10 best golfers in the world. Headlined by PointsBet Sportbook’s outright favorite and world number one, Jon Rahm (+850), this incredibly deep field will be one to marvel at.
Defending champion Max Homa is listed at +4000, a little bit lower than last year’s closing price of +5000. Homa heads into this week’s tournament riding a bit of momentum from his T14 finish at the WM Phoenix Open. While T14 may be a disappointment for Homa and Homa backers, he should be full of confidence at an event he won and finished T5 the year prior.
I would use caution should you decide backing Rahm at +850. In his last 15 events as the favorite or co-favorite, Rahm has just one win. He does have a fair number of top-10 finishes. Should the market allow it, I would likely shy away from backing him outright and placing a wager on a top-10 finish.
