Valero Texas Open Odds, Tips & Betting Predictions To Back

Valero Texas Open Odds, Tips & Betting Predictions To Back

It’s last call for the Masters invites and the last tune-up for golf betting ahead of the major season entering this week’s Valero Texas Open at TPC San Antonio.

A chance at the last-minute invite to Augusta National with a Masters-qualifying win can provide big drama on Sunday assuming the contenders aren’t already in the field, and we’ve seen plenty of dramatic swings and upsets down the stretch in Texas.

Rory McIlroy is the favorite with +750 odds on betting sites and betting apps coming off a ho-hum T-33 finish at the Players Championship – this is always a big time of year for the Irishman as he looks to complete the fourth and final leg of the career Grand Slam with a green jacket.

Defending Valero champ Jordan Spieth and reigning Masters champ Hideki Matsuyama are next with golf odds of +1400, while 2019 Valero winner Corey Conners rounds out the top four at +1800. The Canadian is one to watch, with sports betting in Ontario set to go live next week, just in time for Masters betting.

2022 Valero Texas Open Pick

Adam Hadwin Top-10 Finish

Odds: +350 at BetMGM

Hadwin has it rolling right now with back-to-back top-10 finishes at the Players Championship and Valspar. We think he could make it three in a row this week in Texas.

Hadwin is an exceptional irons player, but the all-around game is as good as it's ever been. He’s rock solid throughout the back right now and ranks 23rd in Strokes Gained total. He gives up a few shots as a relatively short hitter, but he makes up for it by peppering fairways and keeping himself in the hunt at all times.

The short game is in a really good place, the confidence is sky high and we expect Hadwin to contend over the weekend.

We like the odds at BetMGM on a Hadwin Top-10 finish at +350.

2022 Valero Texas Open Betting Tips

TPC San Antonio is a sneaky-tough golf course. It can be downright brutal when the wind is really whipping, which it often does this time of year. This is not a ‘bomb-and-gauge’ week and players can’t fake it around here.

We see a lot of pure ballstrikers winning as a result, with recent champions like Jordan Spieth, Corey Conners and Andrew Landry. Controlling the ball in the wind will be essential, so we’re definitely taking a good look at the Strokes Gained Approach numbers from the Players.

TPC Sawgrass was a wind tunnel for much of the tournament and we saw a lot of brutal ejections on small mistakes. Anyone who handled those conditions well should be poised to do so again this week. Distance off the tee is nice as this is a big ballpark, but the conditions are usually such that accuracy with the driver is more important.
