Best Bet

Russell Henley
Houston Open Winner 2022

Back-to-back winners are very rare but happy to bet that Russell Henley can hold his form with the devout Christian unlikely to have partied too hard. He was outstanding in Mayakoba and has won the Houston Open before. He finished 13th at the key correlation event, The Players. Ranks 2nd in Strokes Gained: Approach, 7th in GIR, 9th in Proximity, 9th in Par 3 Scoring and 11th in Birdie or Better so his iron game should put him right in the mix.

Mid-Tier Bet

Taylor Pendrith
Houston Open Winner 2022

Canadian Taylor Pendrith is a tremendous price to perform this week. Ranks Top 12 in Driving Distance, Strokes Gained: Off The Tee, GIR and Par 3 Scoring. The Players is tge best guide and he finished 13th at Sawgrass this season.

Value Bet

Danny Willett
Houston Open Winner 2022

Former Masters winner who has not won another tournament on American soil but should have earlier in the year when three-putting the last hole at Napa in an incredible meltdown two months back. Does rank 6th in Strokes Gained: Putting and Putting Average so expecting a big showing this week at triple figure odds.
