It’s Masters tune-up time for those at the top of the golf betting boards entering this week’s Valero Texas Open at TPC San Antonio. For the rest of the field, this week represents the last chance to qualify for the first major of the year next week at Augusta National – as Corey Conners did with his dramatic 2019 victory.

Betting favorite and World No. 1 Dustin Johnson withdrew from this event Monday ahead of his green jacket defense. Tony Finau is now the slim betting favorite at +1100, while Jordan Spieth is +1200 in the latest Valero Texas Open odds. WGC-Match Play runner-up Scottie Scheffler is third at +1400, and Conners and Hideki Matsuyama round out the top five at +1800.

Valero Texas Open Predictions & Betting Tips

Kevin Chappell Top-20 Finish (+400 at DraftKings)

It has been a rough year for Chappell, but he clearly found something at the Honda Classic. The driver was on point, the irons were sharp, and he bounced back from a third-round 75 with a 5-under 65 on Sunday. Chappell also has four top-20 finishes in eight starts here, including a win, a T-4 and a T-2. This course just works for him, and his game was in strong form the last time Chappell teed it up. We’re on him for a top-20 finish at +400 with DraftKings.

Valero Texas Open Betting Tips

This is a big, par-72 layout that can play a number of different ways based on wind. It’s very difficult when things get breezy, as is often the case, placing a premium on good placement off the tee and guys who can flight it low.

It’s definitely a ballstriker's course, evidenced by past winners like Conners, Andrew Landry, Chappell and Charley Hoffman. We’re also taking last week’s WGC-Match Play into account – we lean toward fading guys like Scottie Scheffler and Matt Kuchar, who played the maximum seven matches in five days last week at Austin Country Club.

For guys who didn’t tee it up in the Match Play, we’re looking at Strokes Gained stats from the Honda Classic to judge current form. That is a brutal golf course and anyone who played solid tee-to-green there should be a solid bet again this week.
