Bets to win
Daniel Berger 11-1; top-5 finish (+275); top-10 finish (+163)
Bearman: Berger is my copy and paste, go to the well guy. Go back to last week’s column, add another top 10, rinse, repeat. Even on a TPC Stadium course that he had not previously played well on (one previous top-50 finish), he gave us a top 10 with a brilliant 67 on Sunday. For those counting at home (we all are), that’s 11 top 10s in 21 events over the last 13 months. Two big differences from last week: (1) he actually has played well here at the Honda (runner-up in 2015, fourth place last year) and (2) you won’t be able to get the “steal” prices we got last week (+400 on top 10 and +3500 to win). This is a virtual home game for Berger, as he grew up a few miles down the road in Plantation, Florida. He enters this event as the favorite at 11-1, but that is not moving me off it. He is simply too good and, to borrow a phrase from Anita, my personal ATM.
