Phoenix Open 2022 Odds, Favorites and Picks

It’s Super Bowl week, and the rowdy fans in Phoenix are ready for the annual PGA TOUR event at TPC Scottsdale. I’ve got picks and props and the Big Game, and I’ve been covering the Super Bowl more than the Phoenix Open 2022 odds and event this week.

So I’m limited again while scrambling to save par, and I’ll chip-in Fairway’s favorites and longshot picks below for the 2022 Phoenix Open. I’m not going to force a tournament match-up play without digging into the stats and more match-up info. I spent more time Wednesday night reviewing more stats info on sites like Fantasy National, but I’m going to pass this week on tournament match-ups, but did chip-in a Round 1 match-up below that starts in the afternoon.

We’re off to a 5-0 start to our PGA tournament match-ups this year following last week’s 2-0 sweep at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am with additional bets that won and put a circle on the scorecard. One of our tournament match-up winners last week was a big underdog on Chez Reavie (+135) over Cameron Champ (cut).

The fully-enclosed Par 3 at hole No. 16 is nicknamed “The Coliseum”. Nearly 20,000 loud and enthusiastic fans pack the grandstand seats surrounding the iconic hole.

The three Par 5’s rank as the easiest scoring holes at the Stadium Course. As you follow the golfers and action, the Par 4’s at holes No. 11, 14 and 5 are the toughest scoring holes along with the Par 3s at No. 7 and 12.

I also chip-in a Phoenix Open preview at the PlayUSA site in California which includes some of the top finishers by golfers in the event the past five years.
