2020 Workday Charity Open: Latest betting odds, favorites and sleeper picks for Muirfield Village Golf Club

Patrick Cantlay
Patrick Cantlay, a 14-1 pick to win this week at the Workday Charity Open at Muirfield Village, has shown that he knows how to win at the Ohio club.

Patrick Cantlay, who won last year's Memorial Tournament, looks like a good bet at 14-1 odds to win the inaugural Workday Charity Open at Muirfield Village

After a tough week in Cromwell, Conn., we bounced back in a big way in Detroit for the Rocket Mortgage Classic. Outside of a few more asymptomatic positive COVID-19 tests, it was a pretty straightforward week in Motown, concluding with the inevitable sixth PGA Tour victory for Bryson DeChambeau. His winning formula of math, science, club adjustments and bulking up to overpower the field finally paid off as he was able to storm past Matthew Wolff (50-1). All signs are pointing toward a sustainable future for the “Bryson Method.”

Our other two picks, Viktor Hovland (20-1) and Lucas Glover, finished T-12 and T-21, respectively. So, it was a very solid week for those who were able to take advantage of the top-25 market. We now begin a two-tournament stint at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio, starting with this week’s Workday Charity Open. The field is more similar to past stops since the season restart last month, with many marquee names looking to take advantage of the extra preparation for next week’s Memorial Tournament.

According to William Hill, Justin Thomas is the favorite, at 11-1. Despite his missed cut at the Travelers, Thomas has been almost as consistent as DeChambeau since the beginning of 2020. Next is Brooks Koepka, a top-10 finisher in Harbour Town, world No. 2 Jon Rahm, and Patrick Cantlay, last year’s Memorial winner, all at 14-1. Rounding out the top five players is Hideki Matsuyama, the 2014 Memorial champion at Muirfield.

Among the favorites, we like Cantlay at 14-1. Though he does not have a large sample size on the new post-COVID Tour, he showed no signs of rust during his T-11 week at the Travelers. Cantlay should feel even more comfortable at Muirfield with a two-week stay in Ohio.

Our first sleeper of the week begins again with Hovland. He was listed at 22-1, so the word might be out, but he’s been on a steady rise this year, and we want to continue with his momentum. A sleepier choice is Kevin Streelman, at 66-1. Streelman was right in it until the end at the Travelers a couple of weeks ago, placing second, and he finished in the top five last year at the Memorial. We like him to continue his steady play and have another good week.
