Betting Guide for the 2020 QBE Shootout With Odds, Predictions, and Tips

QBE Shootout Betting Guide 2020

With no official action on the PGA Tour until early January in Hawaii, you won’t want to miss your opportunity to bet on the QBE Shootout.

Fortunately, you’ve landed on a QBE Shootout betting guide designed to get you ready for the festivities. Let’s start with some details about the event.

QBE Shootout Specifics

  • When: December 11-13
  • Where: Tiburon Golf Club at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort – Naples, FL
  • Format: 54 Holes (Day 1 – Scramble, Day 2 – Modified Alternate Shot, Day 3 – Four-Ball)

12 two-man teams descend on Tiburon Golf Club in Naples to take part in an event that was started by Greg Norman in 1989.

Formerly known as the “Shark Shootout,” among other titles, bragging rights and a bunch of cash are on the line at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort. Rory Sabbatini and Kevin Tway each walked away with $435k for their three-day efforts in 2019, although you wouldn’t know that judging by the QBE Shootout odds.

2020 QBE Shootout Odds

The most intriguing duo in this field also happens to be the favorites to be the last team standing. The best sports betting sites have installed bunched-up odds throughout, save for the disrespect being aimed at Kevin Na and Sean O’Hair.

Keep in mind, Sean O’Hair has won the QBE Shootout twice (2012 with Kenny Perry, 2017 with Steve Stricker). Kevin Na is one of the best putters on the PGA Tour and figures to be a great partner in the rotating formats.

Speaking of the top sportsbooks throwing shade at a couple of golfers, defending champs Rory Sabbatini and Kevin Tway are listed 11th out of 12 teams on the betting sheet. After firing sizzling rounds of 58-67-60 for a three-day total of 185, Sabbatini and Tway outlasted Jason Kokrak and J.T. Poston by two shots.

Interestingly enough, the two teams that tied for third are back seeking redemption (Billy Horschel and Brendon Todd, Ryan Palmer and Harold Varner III).

Now for some QBE Shootout predictions.

2020 QBE Shootout Predictions and Betting Tips

Despite many sites not posting odds for the QBE Shootout, BetOnline has done us a solid. Not only have they posted odds to win (displayed above), but you can bet on teams landing inside the top 3. You can also place wagers on head-to-head matchups or, in this case – “two-on-two” matchups.

Why not attack all three betting markets?

On that note, here are my QBE Shootout picks.

Abraham Ancer & Matthew Wolff To Win the QBE Shootout (+550)

Two-over-par thru 10 holes wasn’t the start Abraham Ancer envisioned last week at the Mayakoba Golf Classic. The good news is the 23rd-ranked player in the world played bogey-free his final 62 holes and tallied a 12th-place finish (72-67-65-66).

His partner in the QBE Shootout, Matthew Wolff, is the top-ranked player in the field and a guy who should thrive in the mixed formats. Normally I don’t target the favorite when I’m betting golf online, but I just don’t see many versions of this tandem not being in contention.

Lanto Griffin & Mackenzie Hughes to Finish Top 3 (+325)

Strapped with seven top-25s since the restart, Lanto Griffin has played stellar golf and finished 18th in the 2019-20 FedEx Cup standings. I’d continue boasting about Lanto’s accomplishments, but I want to make sure there’s time to shed light on Mackenzie Hughes.

After finishing solo-second in his last event before golf was paused in March, all the 30-year-old Canadian has done is log six top-10s. On the heels of a final-round 63 Sunday in Houston, it appears that Hughes will end the calendar year inside the top 50 in the OWGR. That puts Mackenzie in a great frame of mind for three days in Naples.

Marc Leishman & Cameron Smith to Beat Cameron Champ and Tony Finau (+113)

The tag-team of Cameron Champ and Tony Finau are going to receive a lot of attention for how far they hit the golf ball. However, I’m willing to fade the Ping staffers draped in Nike apparel for a twosome that has been down this rodeo before.

Not only were Marc Leishman and Cameron Smith teammates at the 2019 Ryder Cup in Melbourne, but the Aussies finished runner-up in the most recent World Cup of Golf (won by Belgium’s Thomas Pieters and Thomas Detry).

Smith and Leishman are ranked 27th and 28th in the world, respectively, while Champ clocks in at #71. Considering that Finau is toying around with a unique-looking putter, I like the dependability offered by the pair from Down Under.

Final Words

Did this QBE Shootout betting guide put you in the mood to fire in a few wagers?

If betting on these quasi-official PGA Tour events is your cup of tea, make sure you don’t miss out on next week’s PNC Championship.

The PNC Challenge – previously dubbed the Father/Son Challenge – just got a lot more exciting. First, Justin Thomas and his pops decided to join the festivities, sparking even more interest in the 36-hole event contested at The Ritz-Carlton Golf...
