    Harry Bondi - Golf Charles Schwab Challenge

    (1/2 Unit) WEBB SIMPSON TO WIN (25-to-1)

    Simpson isn’t someone who is going to bring in big TV ratings and storm around the course pumping his fist like Tiger Woods, but he’s had a stellar career with six wins and a major championship (2012 U.S. Open). He excels on shorter courses and four of his six career wins came on courses with Bentgrass greens. Although he missed the cut here last year, in the previous two years he was fifth and third.


    MATCH-UP BETS

    (1 Unit) Tony Finau (-135) over Marc Leishman

    Not only does Finau seem to thrive when he’s playing in an event with a star-studded field, but, like Simpson, he loves the Bentgrass greens. He was the leader after Round 1 here last year when he ultimately finished second, and he’s made the cut in four of five starts on this course. Leishman hasn’t played this tournament the last two years and in his previous seven starts on the course he only cracked the top 20 once (13th in 2006).


    (1 Unit) Russell Knox (-135) over Bubba Watson

    Bubba loves the long ball and as mentioned above that gives him zero advantage here. There’s a reason he has seldom played this course. He hates it. Bubba hasn’t traveled here since 2008 when he placed 72nd and his only other start in this event came two years previous when he missed the cut. Knox, meanwhile, has played the event in four of the last six years. He not only made the cut in all four starts, but finished in the top 24 all four times, including an eighth-place last year.

    WUNDERDOG

    Game: Tony Finau (7027) vs. Marc Leishman (7028)
    Time: Thursday 06/11 7:00 AM Eastern
    Pick: Tony Finau -120 (moneyline) at 5Dimes


    Tony Finau has plenty of power, but it was a subtle shift in his grip that allowed him to add some much-needed finesse to improve his accuracy. Finau put his right hand more underneath the grip and used a simple swing when the wind was picking up. It worked and he went on to win the 2016 Puerto Rico Open. He's had a terrific 2020, rising to No. 16 in the Official World Golf Ranking with three Top 10 finishes, including second in the Phoenix Open in February. His accuracy will come in handy at the Colonial Country Club in Texas, with its tight fairways, ample rough, and trees surrounding the winding Trinity River. Accuracy off the tee and precision shots are essential. Last week, Finau's ball-striking accuracy ranking was 49 out of 226 of the top golfers. That is a huge edge in this matchup versus 36-year Marc Leishman, whose ball-striking accuracy ranking is #189. Back Tony Finau to win this head-to-head match-up.
