2022 PGA Valspar Championship Betting Odds

2022 PGA Valspar Championship Betting Odds

In the shadows of The Players Championship, the PGA Tour lands in Palm Harbor, Florida for the Valspar Championship at Copperhead. We have Valspar Championship betting odds and our Valspar Championship betting tips for the 2022 tournament at TheSportsGeek below.

Our Valspar Championship betting tips are hopefully a winning solution for this weekend after there wasn’t much traction at The Players. We were close to finding a winner in back-to-back weeks, but our golfers couldn’t finish in the final round.

In an upset at The Players, Aussie Cameron Smith won a wild tournament with a -13 over another upset bid from Indian, Anirban Lahiri. Paul Casey finished third to round out the top-3. It was a wild tourney, with multiple stops and goes because of bad weather.

Smith came on strong in the final round to shoot a -6 to overtake Lahiri. Neither Smith nor Lahiri were on most radars. Smith is on the Valspar Championship betting odds board in Palm Harbor.

He had previously finished T33 in the Genesis Open, but did set a PGA scoring record at the Tournament of Champions to open the year. He has decent enough odds to win the Valspar Championship at +2500.

He was CUT from the Sony Open prior to his effort in the Genesis Open. Smith found the right form at the right time to win the biggest purse in golf of $3,6000,000 from the total pool of $20,000,000.

The $7,800,000 Valspar Championship is a drop from The Players, but it provides good prep work for The Masters. There is the Texas Open and then The Masters on April 7-10.

This is one of the smaller tournaments following the “fifth major”, but there are some notable names that signed up to play in Palm Harbor. The Valspar Championship betting odds board is currently up at all of our favorite golf betting sites.

NOTABLE ENTRIES IN THE VALSPAR CHAMPIONSHIP
Dustin Johnson, Collin Morikawa, Justin Thomas, Shane Lowry, and Bubba Watson all intend to play the Valspar. Viktor Hovland is the highest-ranked player participating this weekend. His odds to win the Valspar Championship are among the best in 2022.

Hovland finished T3, four strokes behind Sam Burns in the Valspar Championship last year. Burns edged ahead for a -17 win over Keegan Bradley’s -14.

Valspar Championship Betting Tips

Viktor Hovland (+1600)

I’m surprised to see that Viktor Hovland’s odds to win the Valspar Championship aren’t better this weekend. It’s better for us, as it provides betting value on Hovland.

However, I don’t see oddsmakers giving Hovland the most respect in this spot. He’s been one of the most consistent golfers over the past several weeks and is coming off a strong tournament here last year.

TOP RATED GOLFER IN THE VALSPAR
Hovland finished T9 at The Players after shooting a respectable -7 through four rounds. It was another consistent performance after going T4 at the Genesis Open, T2 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, and then a solid showing last week.

He was in good form last year in Palm Harbor, which was expected then as well. This is a course that plays to his strengths and there should be a chance for him again this week.

Note that Hovland has finished in the top-10 in five of his previous seven entries, including two wins. I have him as one of the favorites to win, but his odds to win the Valspar Championship are below Justin Thomas.

At +1600, the consistent hand of the 24-year-old Norweigan has to be considered.

LOUIS OOSTHUIZEN (+4000)

If you are really digging deep for a value bet in the Valspar Championship, there could be some longshots to consider. Playing longshots is one of the best aspects of betting on golf. You have to take some chances to have success on the golf course.

READY TO FINALLY STRIKE?
Louis Oosthuizen is one of those guys who always seems to be close enough, but struggles to finish the assignment. The South African is in an exclusive club of golfers that have finished runner-up in all four majors. That has to be frustrating.

He’s been just off the pace from winning all four major tournaments in his career. Oosthuizen has also finished close at several other tourneys. He was playing well as of late before withdrawing from the RSM Classic in November.

Oosthuizen went on a brief layoff and he’s just shaking off the injury and rust now. He missed the Phoenix Open, and then T30 in the Honda Classic and T42 last week at The Players.

The one thing to keep in mind with Oosthuizen is that he’s never finished worse than T16 in his last four appearances at Copperhead. He’s consistent and should be lurking. His odds to win the Valspar Championship look like good value.

Shane Lowry (+6600)

If +4000 isn’t generous enough Valspar Championship betting odds on Louis Oosthuizen, then Shane Lowry at +6600 might be a good option. Lowry is coming off a solid showing at TPC Sawgrass, including a hole-in-one.

BEST VALUE PLAY
He finished T13 a week after coming just short in the Honda Classic for 2nd. Lowry fell just a stroke shy of Sepp Straka in that one at PGA National. It’s not surprising given his recent form.

The Irishman has been locked in and has been seeing the ball well. He’s finished T9, T12, T24, 2nd, and T13 in his previous five appearances. I can’t fault Lowry at this price. He likely has a better than his odds to win the Valspar Championship indicate.
