2020 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open odds, predictions: Picks from proven model that nailed six majors



Bryson DeChambeau is set to make his first start on the PGA Tour since winning his first major championship last month at the U.S. Open. DeChambeau also finished on top of the leaderboard at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in 2018, holding off Patrick Cantlay by one stroke. He’ll have some stiff competition in the 2020 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open field with fellow major winners like Collin Morikawa, Jason Day and Webb Simpson set to tee it up this week.

DeChambeau, who’s now recorded seven victories on the PGA Tour, is going off as the 7-1 favorite in the 2020 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open odds from William Hill. Other top 2020 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open contenders include Simpson (10-1), Cantlay (16-1), and Tony Finau (18-1), who’s coming off an eighth-place finish at the U.S. Open. Before locking in your 2020 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open picks or entering any PGA DFS tournaments on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel, be sure to see the latest golf predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

SportsLine’s prediction model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been on fire since the return of the PGA Tour in June. In fact, it’s up over $13,500 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.

After nailing Sergio Garcia (+5500) finishing on top of the leaderboard at the Sanderson Farms Championship, McClure finished up over $6,200 yet again last week on his best bets. The model had him in the top five from the start and McClure’s best bets included Garcia winning outright. Those who followed that advice saw a massive +5500 return. 

He also finished profitable at the U.S. Open, nailing two of his best bets, including a +1100 top-five bet on Matthew Wolff. McClure hit a top-five bet (+1200) on Doc Redman at the Wyndham Championship, finishing up over $700 on his best bets. 

The model was all over Dustin Johnson (8-5) finishing on top of the leaderboard at the Tour Championship and Justin Thomas winning the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational at 12-1. And at the 3M Open, McClure’s best bets returned a whopping $1,100 as he nailed a top-five pick on Max Homa (+1200) and a top-20 pick on Talor Gooch (+400). Those are just some of his recent big returns. 

In all, the advanced computer model has also nailed a whopping six majors entering the weekend. Anyone who has followed its golf picks has seen massive returns. 

Now that the 2020 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open field is locked, SportsLine simulated the event 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected leaderboard.

The model’s top 2020 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open predictions 

One huge shocker the model is calling for at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open 2020: Tony Finau, one of the top Vegas favorites at 18-1 according to William Hill, stumbles and barely cracks the top-10. Finau is coming off a sensational performance at the U.S. Open, earning an eighth-place finish at Winged Foot. However, Finau has been extremely inconsistent in the past year, finishing outside the top-30 seven times in his last 14 starts on the PGA Tour. 

Finau’s inconsistent performances can be directly attributed to his inability to find the fairway off the tee. The 31-year-old finished last season ranked 184th in driving accuracy percentage (51.79), which doesn’t bode well for his chances to finish on top of the leaderboard this week. He’s not a strong pick to win it all and there are far better values in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open 2020 field.

Another surprise: Matthew Wolff, a 25-1 long shot, makes a strong run at the title. Wolff has a much better chance to win it all than his odds imply, so he’s a target for anyone looking for a huge payday.

Wolff enters this week’s event having finished T-16 or better in three of his last four starts on the PGA Tour, which includes a runner-up finish at the U.S. Open. He’s a long ball hitter who averages 333.6 yards per drive this season and he also ranks second in strokes gained: tee-to-green (3.444). Those are valuable skills this week at this 7,200-plus yard course, making Wolff a great choice for 2020 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open bets.

Also, the model is targeting three other golfers with odds of 25-1 or higher to make a strong run at the title. Anyone who backs these underdogs could hit it big. You can only see them here.
