Nigel Seeley’s three from the tee for the Travelers Championship

Nigel Seeley 18 Jun 2019

Travelers Championship betting tips for this week. Read on for our expert tips for the Travelers Championship taking place at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut.

Travelers Championship

It was a complete blow out for our selections at the US Open with none of our fancied three challenging anywhere near the top of the leaderboard at Pebble Beach. This week we will be hoping for much better performances from our three off the tee with the Travelers Championship from TPC River Highlands, Cromwell, CT.

Brooks Koepka came very close to making history at Pebble Beach by winning three successive US Open titles, but the World number one had to settle for runner-up spot behind eventual winner Gary Woodland and at 8/1 I would give the four time major winner a swerve, despite clearly being the best player in the field he's only won two PGA events outside the majors.

Last week's headline selection was Patrick Cantlay and he started slowly and finished well at Pebble Beach and will go well again, but I would want a lot more than 11/1 for my money and he can be dismissed on the prices alone, as can out of form duo Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas at 16/1 and 20/1 respectively.

Course specialists Paul Casey will be a popular choice at 20/1, but the Englishman threw a four shot lead away here last year to finish runner-up and also lost a play-off in 2015 and he's one player I could never trust approaching the winning line. 

Defending champion Bubba Watson will be another popular choice at 33/1 and with three wins at River Highlands he has the game to win again, but his form since the US Masters has been poor and I couldn't back him to make a timely return despite his excellent course record.

Three From The Tee

Bryson DeChambeau @ 30/1 bet365
* Odds correct at 10:10 BST on 18/6/2019

BRYSON DeCHAMBEAU is my main selection this week at what looks a very large 30/1 available at bet365, given the quality of the field this week.

DeChambeu had a fantastic start to the season with a win in his first appearance at The Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and since those heady heights his form has tipped at the middle part of the year, however there are signs that the 25 year-old is coming back to decent form after a 22nd finish at The Memorial, which saw him close with an excellent round of 66 and last week at the US Open he finished in 35th place, closing again with a nice final round 69. 

There is no doubt that on his day DeChambeau is one of the most talented players in this field and the timing looks right to grab a decent price as his putting in recent weeks has been superb. He's 3 from 3 at River Highlands and was ninth last year, which was his best finish at the event and at the odds he looks the best value bet in the field.

Charley Hoffman @ 66/1 William Hill

Players that didn't participate at the US Open might have an advantage this week and one player who was missing at Pebble Beach and who can capitalise on that is CHARLEY HOFFMAN who is well worth taking at 66/1 with a number of bookies.

Hoffman, will be well rested, unlike others in the field and he is in decent form as well with four top 20 finishes in the last three months and has an excellent record at River Highlands so he ticks every box as a potential winner.

The four time PGA Tour winner has made every cut in his eight previous appearances at this tournament and since 2010 the tour veteran has had four top 20 finishes with his best a third in 2017.

Chez Reavie @ 66/1 William Hill

Another 66/1 shot who looks over-prices this week is CHEZ REAVIE with that price freely available with a number of layers. 

Reavie is playing some of the best and most consistent golf oh his career with the 37 year-old in the middle of a hot streak with four top 20 finishes in his last five starts, which included two majors. Last week he finished third at the US Open with four very nice and consistent rounds and at a tournament where he's gone well before and arriving in the best form of the year 66/1 looks a very big price.
