Best Matchups Bets for the 2020 Zozo Championship

| October 20, 2020 11:44 am PDT

After a couple of weeks in Sin City, the PGA Tour ventures out even further west to Thousand Oaks, CA. The return of Tiger Woods has folks eager to get some money down, but don’t just start placing wagers willy-nilly.

Fire in bets that are steeped in value and have a legitimate chance at paying off.

Here is a trio of Zozo Championship head-to-head picks to get you started.

Matthew Fitzpatrick vs. Bubba Watson

Matthew Fitzpatrick-147
Bubba Watson+122

Here’s a way to target Bubba Watson’s surging form coming into the Zozo Championship.

A slow start out of the gates in June is a distant memory on the heels of four top-25s among Watson’s last six starts. Bubba led the field at the CJ Cup in SG: Tee-to-Green and has a tremendous track record putting on the bumpy Poa annua greens in SoCal (three wins at Riviera, one at Torrey Pines).

Matthew Fitzpatrick displayed exquisite touch on the delicate surfaces at Shadow Creek, however, slower + bumpier greens this week could lead to that advantage being somewhat negated. For what it’s worth – Fitzpatrick has made four starts in the state of California since the start of 2019.

In those four starts?


+122 for Bubba in this spot is screaming with value.

Matthew Wolff vs. Tiger Woods

Matthew Wolff-110
Tiger Woods-110

Teeing it up for the first time in over a month with temperatures expected to be chilly – not exactly a time to be keen on backing Tiger. Getting on the Matthew Wolff train at a golf course he’s “played at 1,000 times” – that’s more up my alley.

I’m giving Matthew a pass for his poor finish at the CJ Cup and instead focusing on his game over the last three months. As in the game that vaulted him from outside of the top 100 in the OWGR all the way up to #12.

Not only did I recommend fading Woods in my Zozo Championship predictions post, but I also endorsed the 21-year-old Agoura Hills native to have a fruitful week. Frankly, “-110” feels like a discounted price.

Cameron Smith vs. Paul Casey

Cameron Smith+130
Paul Casey-157

Paul Casey arrives at Sherwood after a sketchy couple of weeks in Vegas. Paul missed the cut at the Shriners and finished T69 in a 78-man field at the CJ Cup. Cameron Smith was also in the Entertainment Capital of the World, although the Aussie fared much better.

Smith placed 24th at TPC Summerlin and 11th at Shadow Creek – but that’s not all.

Cameron’s dependability stretches back to the start of the FedEx Cup Playoffs in August. In six starts over the last two months, a T38 at Winged Foot was the only time Smith has finished outside of the top-25.

I first jumped on Cameron as a tournament sleeper at +8000, and then I touted him as one of my Zozo Championship DFS picks. Lurking at +130 against a player searching for form – go ahead and sign me up.
