Golf Betting Tips: Jordan Spieth to finally get over line at Charles Schwab?

Despite tipping the likes of Scottie Scheffler and Xander Schauffele at the US PGA Championship, GolfMagic found no joy at Southern Hills. Matt and Andy are back with four fresh selections this week at the Charles Schwab Challenge where the new two-time US PGA Championship winner Justin Thomas and other top players will be competing.

Jordan Spieth will be looking to win for the second time at the Charles Schwab Challenge this week at Colonial Country Club.

Spieth will be one of many top players such as Justin Thomas, Scottie Scheffler and Collin Morikawa looking to go low back in Fort Worth, Texas.

Thomas won his second major title at the US PGA Championship last week in Tulsa, beating Will Zalatoris in a 3-hole aggregate playoff.

Zalatoris, who also lost in a playoff to Luke List at the Farmers Insurance Open in January, is also in the field this week. The 25-year-old is yet to win on the PGA Tour.

Max Homa, Tommy Fleetwood, Sam Burns and Abraham Ancer are other notable names who will be looking to get closer to Scheffler at the top of the FedEx Cup rankings.

Take a look below at Matt and Andy's betting picks for the Charles Schwab Challenge.

Jordan Spieth - 12/1 (BET365)

Jordan Spieth may not have performed well at the US PGA, but he has already recorded a runner-up finish in Texas in 2022 at the AT&T Byron Nelson. He won this event in 2016 and he has come second three times too. The 28-year-old won the RBC Heritage in April and he is beginning to find the form that saw him hold the World No.1 spot for 26 weeks.

Tommy Fleetwood - 40/1 (BET365)

The penny looks to be dropping for Tommy Fleetwood in 2022. He played admirably at the US PGA in tied fifth place which was his third top-10 this season, which is already more than last season. The Englishman is ranked 16th in strokes gained in total and 10th in scoring average.

Will Zalatoris - 22/1 (BET365)

In his last five tournaments, Zalatoris has finished in the top 10 on four occasions. He has lost in two playoffs, most agonisingly at last week's US PGA Championship. The 25-year-old is currently ranked first in strokes gained from tee to green and strokes gained approaching the green as well. A win is just around the corner for sure.

Webb Simpson - 33/1 (BET365)

Webb Simpson's third-round score of 65 at the US PGA Championship proved there's still life in a player with just one top-10 in 2022. He's ranked in the top 40 in driving accuracy percentage and strokes gained around the green. 33/1 for the former US Open champion feels a very steep price.
