PGA Odds And Bets For 2022 The American Express

Following two events in Hawaii including last week’s Sony Open, the PGA Tour West Coast swing heads to La Quinta, CA for 2022 The American Express.

I’ve added odds to win from the Circa Sports in Las Vegas below, which often has the best odds to win on most players. But comparing and betting the best odds is essential for adding to your profits and golf bets.

The California Swing

The American Express event tees off the first leg of the California Swing during the West Coast Swing through Hawaii, California and Arizona. I chip-in additional golf coverage and player profiles for PlayUSA with some chip-ins on players from the Golden State.

I’ll post weekly PGA picks and coverage as available again this season, but know I bet more match-ups and props than listed here. Last week I went 2-for-2 on match-ups with Corey Connors over Marc Leishman and Corey Connors over Talor Gooch.

Last year we had winners in the The American Express, and the 2-1 tourney match-ups was part of our hot start of 17-5 on our PGA golf match-ups before settling for a 2020-21 season record of 21-15 following the Tour Championship and FedExCup finale. I’ll reference past links to coverage so you can see some of the additional data and insights along with golfers and past success.

My golf coverage and research includes use and references from sites like Golf Stats along with Fantasy National, Data Golf and Fanshare Sports. I gain added information from contacts and golf insiders.

I’ll be adding strokes gained stats in future tourney’s, but some of the courses this week don’t provide strokes gained data.

I put it all together and add my intuitive feel for the game and betting acumen to provide golf picks and chip-in added insight with information you can bet on. This page will be updated up to the start of the tournament and include picks for consideration to win, some top finishing position, along with tournament match-ups.
