The Open Championship tees off this week on the historic grounds of Old Course at St. Andrews. However, this isn’t the only PGA Tour event planned for this week. The Barracuda Championship is scheduled for Thursday to Sunday at Tahoe Mountain Club in California.
TheSportsGeek has the latest Baracuda Championship odds, and we provide our predictions and Baracuda Championship picks. This is a $3,700,000 tournament playing in the shadows of The Open Championship overseas.
Last weekend the Scottish Open was completed as a warm-up The Open at St. Andrews. Xander Schauffele went the distance for the win, while on American soil, the Barbasol Championship was completed in Kentucky for a $3,700,000 purse.
As we prepare for The Open Championship, we’re going through the Barracuda Championship odds, looking for the best picks as well. The stars are in Scotland this week, but the Barracuda Championship presents some betting opportunities.

Head below for our best 2022 Barracuda Championship odds and best picks for this tournament from the Tahoe Mountain Club in Truckee, California.
Barracuda Championship Betting Odds
The Barracuda Championship betting odds board has no elite players participating at Tahoe Mountain Club. It’s tough for these tournaments to attract brand names with a purse of $3,700,000 going up against a major.
While that doesn’t sound very exciting, it makes it tougher for oddsmakers to set odds for these tournaments accurately. With the money pouring in at St. Andrews on The Open Championship and attention on the year’s final major, the odds can be a bit tighter.
Maverick McNealy is the Barracuda Championship odds favorite at Tahoe Mountain Club. He’s back in the US after a pretty good showing at the Scottish Open. The 26-year-old enters the Barracuda Championship with confidence after running well at the John Deere Classic and in Scotland.
Is McNealy the best bet on the Barracuda Championship odds board? He holds serious claims, but there might be better value for you to put your money in Truckee.
Barracuda Championship Prediction
Nick Hardy (+2200)
TheSportsGeek has two Barracuda Championship picks for this week at Tahoe Mountain Club. You can play both to include with other golfers you may have on your card or go into the Barracuda Championship confident with one pick.
The 26-year-old went through a string of frustrating results, but he has made the necessary adjustments to improve his game. It’s worked out well for him on the golf course.
In his best performance this year, Hardy held well in the U.S. Open to finish T14. That’s a confidence booster, and Hardy carried over to the Travelers Championship with solid work.
Hardy finished T8 for his second top-10 performance in four tournaments. He made another cut in the John Deere Classic in his most recent tournament for T30. Hardy should be considered against this field at the Barracuda Championship.
Cameron Davis (+1600)
Cameron Davis isn’t the favorite, but he could very easily have the best Barracuda Championship odds to win in my book.
This isn’t a tournament that should be particularly tough for Davis. He should be able to get involved with a shot on Sunday.
Davis has finished in the top-10 in three tournaments since going T3 in the RBC Heritage. After success at the RBC Heritage, Davis has played well against tough rivals.
He took a week off following a solid performance at the John Deere Classic and returns with high hopes to win his second PGA Tour title. Davis is worthy of consideration in this class at the Barracuda Championship.
