We are winding down on the PGA Tour as the 2021 calendar year is nearly complete. There is one official tournament remaining before we head to the 2022 campaign.

There are over 125 golfers in the field for the Houston Open. The defending champion is Carlos Ortiz, who captured the tournament last November.

It is almost time to reveal my best bets and sleeper picks at SportsBetting.ag for this week’s tournament in Houston. We need to take a closer look at the latest details on the course.

  • Winner’s Share: $1.350 Million
  • The overall purse: $7.5 Million
  • 1946 was when the inaugural Houston Open began, won by Byron Nelson
  • Vijay Singh owns the tournament record with a 22-under score in 2002

Hewlett Packard Enterprise Houston Open Bets

Tony Finau (+2800)

Finau is coming off a solid showing at the World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba. He was T-45th while shooting 8-under par. He is No. 12 on the World Golf Rankings and has the momentum to garner consideration of winning the Houston Open this weekend.

He has many strengths as a golfer, which includes nearly every category, excluding putting. If he can keep up on the following rankings, he has the goods to capture the Northern Trust in August.

  • 35th in SG: Approach The Green
  • 35th in SG: Off-The-Tee
  • 59th in SG: Around-The-Green
  • 13th in SG: Tee-To-Green

Tyrell Hatton (+2500)

Hatton is a tremendous golfer and has the momentum to make his mark at the Houston Open. He recently finished tied for 40th at the World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba. He ended a respectable 9-under and has played well before the tournament.

At the CJ Cup @ Summit, Hatton finished T-18th while shooting 18-under par. His No. 19 ranking entering the week on the World Golf Rankings is impressive. Hatton is ranked 21st in SG: Putting. He is also ranked 45th SG: Around-The-Green.

Don’t be shocked to see Hatton make clutch putts to keep his name around the top of the leaderboard. His last victory on the PGA Tour was in January at the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship. He has a top 20 finish in all majors and is likely to finish strong before the calendar year is over.

Matthew Wolff (+2200)

Wolff made me look smart by selecting him to achieve success last week at the World Wide Technology Championship. His top-five finish brought in great earnings, and he will look to continue his torrid pace this weekend in Houston.

He enters the week at No. 31 among the World Golf Rankings. Another good showing would move him up even further, but he will be looking for his second-ever tournament win. The young 22-year-old can credit three of his best strengths.

  • 28th in SG: Around-The-Green
  • 18th in SG: Putting
  • 14th in SG: Tee-To-Green

Two Best Hewlett Packard Enterprise Houston Open Sleepers

The favorites are a bit more plausible at predicting winners than the longshots. These are golfers that are not among the top 10 or so odds to capture the tournament. Finding and accurately selecting sleepers can bring you home the most dough.

Marc Leishman (+3300)

Despite having won only six tournaments on the PGA Tour, Leishman is the perfect sleeper candidate due to his experience. The Australian golfer has been outstanding in his past three rounds.

  • T-38: The CJ Cup @ Summit
  • T-4: Fortinet Championship
  • T-3: Shriners Children’s Open

The putting ability of Leishman can allow him to catch fire and make or save strokes. Other general sportsbooks have longer odds on Leishman, so be sure to weigh your options before selecting your top sleepers.

Mackenzie Hughes (+5000)

If you want long odds and a dart throw that has a shot to surprise some folks, you have come to the right place. Hughes tied for fourth in the Zozo Championship and had top 40 finishes before his late October tournament.

Hughes finished T-25th and T-35th in a pair of tournaments and is No. 50 on the World Golf Rankings. We could see a solid showing, but this is a golfer outside the top 20 for odds. He has shown success despite a lack of winning, but this is another strong putter that should stay in the running of a Top 20 finish.
