We have a very strong field this week for the 2022 Travelers Championship, headed by four of the six top-ranked players in the world, according to the Official World Golf Ranking, and the top four in the FedEx Cup standings, as well.

This week, TPC River Highlands in Connecticut will be one of the shortest courses players will see all year on the PGA TOUR. At less than 6,900 yards, it might be a ball-striker’s paradise, although the likes of Dustin Johnson and Bubba Watson have found great success here.

Our staff is coming off a pair of good weeks, first hitting bets at +450, +120 and -115 odds for the RBC Canadian Open, then having Derek Farnsworth nail a big Matt Fitzpatrick prop winner at +1800 for the US Open.

Before the focus of the golf world (at least on the course) turns to the United Kingdom, check out our staff’s best bets for a big stop on the TOUR calendar.

2022 Travelers Championship Picks

Davis Riley +4500

Jason Sobel: As you’ve probably already noticed, he’s on the same trajectory as his buddy Will Zalatoris and some of the game’s other young twenty-something up-and-comers, just a year or so behind on the timeline. Maybe less.

Riley’s results in his last six starts suggest a lofty ceiling/floor combination: 31st-13th-4th-13th-9th-5th — and that doesn’t even include a playoff loss at the Valspar Championship back in March.

It’ll be a tall task taking down those big names, but in a small sample size, Riley has shown a propensity for playing his best golf when birdies are readily available, as they will be this week. I love taking a shot at this price.

Riley is 40-1 at most sportsbooks, but you can get him at 45-1 at WynnBet, as of Tuesday night.

Brendan Steele—Top 30 (+120)

Chris Murphy: One player jumping off the page for me this week is Brendan Steele. He really fits a lot of what I am looking for this week at TPC River Highlands, and his game is trending up heading into the tournament.

Steele has consecutive top-10 finishes in elite fields at the PGA Championship and the Memorial, where he has gained better than eight shots with his ball striking. He will look to continue that run of hot play into a tournament where he has posted top 25 finishes in two of his last three appearances, including a T6 back in 2020.

It looks like Steele will be a popular play in the DFS space, so I’ll look to get some exposure to him in betting markets. I’ve gone a bit conservative here with my best bet, but at plus money this one really stuck out. I will be looking to add him to the card across the board, even up to his longshot prospects of winning at the +6500 listed on FanDuel.

Patrick Cantlay +1400

Matt Vincenzi: Patrick Cantlay is everything I want in a golfer at TPC River Highlands. He has a solid overall game and can get hot enough to win tournaments with his putter. In the past, we’ve seen golfers get it done at The Travelers by doing a little bit of everything. In his past four starts at the course, Cantlay hasn’t finished worse than 15th.

Perhaps the most glaring identifier of a potential Cantlay victory is his success on Pete Dye designs. The 30-year-old ranks first in Strokes Gained: Total on Pete Dye designs. His team won earlier in the year at the Zurich Classic was also a Pete Dye design in TPC Louisiana.

If you exclude the major championships, which Cantlay has struggled in for the most part through this point in his career, he has been knocking at the door for a win. He finished second at the RBC Heritage (also a Pete Dye design) and third at the Memorial Tournament prior to his 14th at the US Open.

Cantlay famously shot a 60 as an amateur at TPC River Highlands in 2011. He’s a birdie-maker who should enter the week under the radar and motivated to win another PGA TOUR event.

Patrick Cantlay +1400

Derek Farnsworth: This best bets article is filled with sharp golf minds, so it feels good to finally contribute with a winner at the US Open. I had Matt Fitzpatrick to win without the top-five favorites at +1800. It turns out I could have just bet him to win straight up at better odds, but I will gladly take the win.

This week, I am going to a golfer who has gotten a lot of criticism for his play in majors over the last few years. While his name was never featured near the top of the leaderboard, Cantlay put together a strong weekend to sneak into the top 15.

It’s gotten to the point where it’s surprising to see Cantlay not in contention in the non-majors. He has finished T14 or better in 10 of his last 14 starts on the PGA TOUR with two wins, two seconds, a third and two fourths during that stretch. He’s the best in this field in strokes gained per round on Pete Dye courses, and he’s finished in the top 15 at this event in all four of his appearances by him. He doesn’t have a weakness in his game and putts his best on bent/poa greens.

Scottie Scheffler — Top 5, Patrick Cantlay — Top 10 and Xander Schauffele — Top 20 (+2000)

Rob Bolton: I mean, c’mon. Why do ya gotta do this to me, FanDuel?

Twenty times the kickback for a guy (Scheffler) with four wins and a pair of seconds in his last dozen starts, another guy (Cantlay) with three podium finishes in his last five, and yet another (Schauffele) with five consecutive top 20s upon arrival? Understand this is an and-proposition and not an or-, but, uh, for the sake of asking, what’s your limit for units invested? #RhetoricalQ

Of course this won’t pay out. It’s too obvious. Oh, and I don’t think I’ve hit on one of these yet. (Insert reverse fantasy/betting analyst jinx here, please.) But damn, they’re fun!

Marc Leishman +5000

Joshua Perry: Leishman wasn’t at his best off the tee at the US Open, but everything else was in good shape last week on his way to finishing 14th.

This has also been a good spot for him. He picked up his first PGA TOUR win on this course in 2012 and has five more top-25s since that result.

Brian Harman—Top 10 (+430)

Landon Silinsky: Harman looked pretty good last week at The Country Club, making the cut and playing well for three rounds before stubbing his toe on Sunday, which dropped him to a share of 43rd place. He will likely bounce back pretty quickly this week at one of his favorite courses on the PGA TOUR circuit.

In 10 starts at TPC River Highlands since 2012, Harman has made the cut eight times, finishing inside the top 10 in four of those starts.

Outside of a brutal missed cut at Colonial when he was the chalk of the week in DFS, Harman has been pretty consistent this season, making 11-of-14 cuts since the calendar flipped to 2022. He’s been firing on all cylinders across his past eight starts or so, ranking 16th in this field in Total Strokes Gained, 19th in SG: Ball-Striking and 38th in SG: Putting in that time.

Harman will not be nearly as popular this week as he was at Colonial, but his history at this event is too strong to ignore. Another top-10 finish is firmly on the table.

Myth Pereira +5000

Bryan Berryman: TPC River Highlands has been a staple on the PGA Tour for over 30 years. The short, yet exciting, layout demands accuracy off the tee, with players having to navigate gnarly rough, fairway bunkers and water hazards that await any poorly struck tee shot.

I’m looking for players that possess a combination of accuracy off the tee and strong wedge play for my betting card this week. Mito Pereira fits that mould.

The 6,841-yard layout will mean an abundance of approach shots coming from 125-150 yards, a range in which the Chilean ranks first in this field in proximity to the hole over the last 24 rounds. Over this same stretch, Pereira ranks sixth in Strokes Gained: Off-the-Tee and seventh in SG: Approach. To boot, he’s hit 64% of his fairways and 70% of his greens in regulation over the last 12 months.

All of these statistics point toward Pereira having a breakout week. Coming off a missed cut at last week’s US Open, I believe this number is a bit inflated and presenting very strong value. The course sets up in a way that should put him in plenty of positions to capitalize on the strengths of his game.

You can still get Pereira at 50-1 at PointsBet, BetRivers and WynnBet as of Tuesday night.
