A sleeper lurks at Memorial, plus more best bets

June 01, 2021 04:29 PM

This year a loaded field has entered the Memorial, which features a completely revamped Muirfield Village. With so much unknown about the new course, what players look like good bets for fantasy golf lineups or golf betting?

Rotowire's Jeff Erickson and Scott Jenstad join Morning Read's Jeff Ritter to discuss. Ritter says Jordan Spieth's current form makes him a solid anchor for fantasy lineups, while Jenstad leans toward Collin Morikawa and defending champion John Rahm.

In the middle tier of players, Ritter compares Charley Hoffman to a blackjack table that just keeps dishing out winning hands. He also loves Gary Woodland and Patton Kizzire as value bets.

Jenstad has the sleeper of the week: Kyle Stanley, who snuck into the field thanks to a strong finish last week in Texas. At $6,100 in DraftKings, he appears wildly underpriced, and Jenstad loves him as a player to round out a fantasy lineup.

In the end, there can only be one winner. Here are the players the hosts are targeting in one-and-done pools:

Erickson: Tony Finau
Jenstad: Hideki Matsuyama
Ritter: Gary Woodland
