58 PLAYERS REDEEMED TODAY!

The first run of events is nearly complete for the would-be professional golf disruptors, with the penultimate 2022 tournament set to tee off this week at LIV Jeddah in Saudi Arabia. 

The host nation is also the source of LIV’s multiple billions of dollars in resources, which has allowed Greg Norman and Co. to poach a few top players from the PGA Tour with nine-figure contracts. 

LIV is still dealing with an emergency of its own making as the series is not recognized by the Official World Golf Rankings, largely because the 54-hole, no-cut events with no qualifying process of note are non-compliant with several OWGR requirements. 

But the show goes on for now as LIV wraps up a bizarre, tumultuous first year in existence.  Johnson is the golf betting favorite yet again on betting sites and betting apps with +400 odds. Given the small fields and massive discrepancy in quality from top to bottom, the LIV betting board tends to look nearly identical from week to week. 

British Open champ Cameron Smith and Joaquin Niemann are next with golf odds of +800, while Talor Gooch rounds out the top four at +1600.

LIV Golf Jeddah Expert Picks & Predictions

Harold Varner III to Win

Odds: +2500 at DraftKings ➜

Varner was one of a handful of Tour players who made the jump while still firmly in their prime. His move was more well-received than others as Varner didn’t sugarcoat the issue, admitting the mind-blowing money was the major factor in his decision. 

It took Varner a while to get comfortable with the new gig. He finished 34th in Boston and 26th in Chicago against fields he should have been taking advantage of. But the whirlwind that follows whenever a player signs on with LIV has to take a toll, at least initially. 

Varner seemed more comfortable last week and logged a seventh-place finish in Bangkok. He will also have great memories returning to the same course where he scored the biggest win of his career earlier this year at the Saudi International.

We’re on Varner to win this week with +2500 odds at DraftKings.

LIV Golf Jeddah Betting Tips

This is a rare LIV event in which there’s significant course history to go on for some players in the field. 

Royal Greens Golf & Country Club in Jeddah has played host to the Saudi International since 2019 and this week’s betting favorite, Dustin Johnson, is a two-time winner here having gotten it done in 2019 and 2021. 

We’re always gonna fade players priced +400 to win these events. The 54-hole-format allows lesser players more of an opportunity to get hot with the putter and win any given week. And motivation is always in question given the circus-like atmosphere and guaranteed money. 

This should be a tough test – the winning score of the Saudi Invitational has been -15 or lower in each of the last three years. That means we will be fading the bottom of the barrel, but we like talented players like Varner, Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka in the +2500 range.
