Outlaw Tour Betting Preview – Legacy Shootout Predictions
Forget about waiting until the PGA Tour resumes in June to get your golf betting fix in. The Outlaw Tour is in Phoenix this week at The Legacy Golf Resort for a couple of birdie-infested rounds. 36 holes as opposed to 54 means there is no cut, and it also means we can expect lots of aggressive play.
The short par-71 track features four par 5s, the weather will be warm, and Alex Cejka is taking the week off. In other words, the door couldn’t be any more wide open than it is at the Legacy Shootout.
I’ll begin this betting preview with the Outlaw Tour odds.
Legacy Shootout Odds to Win
With Alex Cejka not in the field, Dylan Wu was the obvious golfer for the top golf betting sites to install as the favorite. The 23-year-old Oregon native has been rock-solid in 2020, as evidenced by him sitting 5th on this season’s Korn Ferry Tour’s points list.
KK Limbhasut and Jimmy Gunn are hot on Dylan’s trail, but there’s plenty of value here.
Legacy Shootout Value-Plays
The Paul twins. Both Jeremy and Yannick Paul are no strangers to success on the Outlaw Tour, especially as of late. Yannick has strung together four straight top-10 showings and is coming off shooting 67-68-66 at the Arrowhead Classic.
Jeremy has also been a top-10 machine and fired rounds of 69-69-65 last time out. The University of Colorado products now both live in the area and are getting more and more comfortable competing on this tour.
While their +1000 and +1200 price tags aren’t screaming with value, they offer enough upside on the back end to get me intrigued.
Outlaw Tour Sleeper This Week
Hanging out toward the bottom of the Outlaw Tour betting sheet is Kyle Slattery at +3300. The Southern Illinois University grad slept on the 36-hole lead at the Arrowhead Classic but stumbled during the final round. The fact that Kyle opened with rounds of 62-67 tells you all you need to know about his ability to go low.
Slattery has posted three top-10s in his last six starts on the Outlaw Tour, but here’s a little tidbit.
His best finish this season was 5th place at an event that took place at this very same venue.
My Outlaw Tour Pick Is In
Picking Dylan Wu or Riley Wheeldon win this week makes sense. Jimmy Gunn and KK Limbhasut are among the betting favorites for a reason. Nevertheless, I’m digging past the chalk for my Legacy Shootout prediction.
Matt Gurska is still learning how to prosper at the three-round events on the Outlaw Tour. However, when it comes to the two-day tournaments on this Arizona-based mini-tour, this dude has figured it out.
The last 36-hole tournament on the Outlaw Tour was the Las Colinas Classic from February 23-24. All Gurska did there was fire 65-61 and walk away with the trophy. Before that, Matt was busy shooting 66-63 at the two-day Lone Tree Shootout (February 4-5), also resulting in a victory.
Gurska is coming off a 12th-place finish last week in Glendale, but it’s worth noting that Matt played the par 5s even for the week. After making just 12 birdies in three rounds at the Arrowhead Classic, watch out for the 27-year-old to get red-hot at the Legacy Shootout.
