WGC – Match Play Odds And 2022 Bracket

The groups are set along with the Match Play odds to win the World Golf Championships – Dell Match Play event. I chip-in with some coverage and feature on Scottie Scheffler and Jordan Spieth for Play Texas on the PlayUSA network. Those two Dallas residents and former Texas Longhorn golfers lead a contingent from the Lone Star state for the event at Austin Country Club.

No ‘Fairway Favorites’ or ‘Fairway Longshots’ this week, and we’ll pass on the Group winners picks.  But I did bet Spieth over Keegan Bradley in an opening round match Wednesday. Any other match plays during the tournament will be updated here and sent on Twitter.

Last year, players with the worse seed in a match had a winning record (48-45-18). So betting on low odds favorites to win this event can hardly be endorsed. Better off waiting to the weekend and evaluating the match-ups and play.

Here is a popular Texas trio getting betting and fan support this week. Odds to win from Caesars Sportsbook.

Scottie Scheffler (+1600)

Seeded No. 5 in this year’s WGC Match Play event, his opponents in the opening Group Stage round-robin format include:

  • Matthew Fitzpatrick (20)
  • Tommy Fleetwood (41)
  • Ian Poulter (59)

Scottie Scheffler had a strong showing in his debut performance at last year’s WGC Match Play event. He was seeded No. 32 and advanced to the finals before falling to No. 34 Billy Horschel, who had 80/1 odds to win the event.

Jordan Spieth (+3000)

Seeded No. 11 on the other side of the bracket, Spieth is joined in the Group Stage by 2013 Masters champion Adam Scott (32), 2013 U.S. Open champion Justin Rose (46) and 2011 PGA Championship winner Keegan Bradley (60).

A review of the golf stats performance charts shows both Scottie Scheffler and Jordan Spieth have had some success in their old college town.

Jordan Spieth has a strong record in the WGC Match Play event at Austin despite not winning or making the finals. The 3-time major winner has played in the event every year in Austin since 2016, and his finishing positions are T9, T30, T17, T24 and T8 in 2021.

Sergio Garcia (+5000)

Garcia has lived with his wife in Austin since 2018. His $6.3 million house if for sale, and they are purchasing a bigger property close by in Austin. Golf has been good to Sergio, along with his endorsement deals.  Garcia has also had success in the WGC – Match Play event the past three years, making it through the Group Stage again last year and winning a Round 16 match as well.

Garcia has to get through his Group Stage of Collin Morikawa (2), Jason Kokrak (22) and Robert MacIntire (61) this year to advance to the weekend

Tournament match-up picks are 7-3 this year after last week’s bogey at the Valspar Championship.
