Sanderson Farms Championship 2020 Betting Preview

| September 28, 2020 11:38 am PDT

So much for the betting sites for expecting Hudson Swafford to carry any steam into Mississippi. Last week’s winner arrives at the Country Club of Jackson as a +8000 longshot.

Ironically, two wins on Hudson’s resume might actually take him out of the running.

Ever since this event moved to the par-72 track in the state’s capital (2014), we’ve seen six consecutive first-time winners hoist the trophy.

Just some good food for thought as you get ready to lock in a Sanderson Farms Championship prediction for 2020.

Sanderson Farms Championship Odds to Win

Scottie Scheffler returns to the betting arena for the first time since finishing second to Xander Schauffele in the 72-hole stroke portion of the TOUR Championship at East Lake. The 2019-20 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year has finished 22nd or better in six straight starts and will be making his third appearance at the Sanderson Farms Championship (45th in 2018, 16th in 2019).

Louis Oosthuizen landed solo third last time out at the US Open while Sungjae Im wound up in a playoff here a season ago. Rounding out the consensus top-4 favorites to win the Sanderson Farms Championship is one of the hotter names in golf, Will Zalatoris.

The Korn Ferry Tour’s top player parlayed his T-6th at Winged Foot into another top-10 in Punta Cana.

What Happened at the 2019 Sanderson Farms Championship?

Sebastian Munoz parred the first hole of the sudden-death playoff to fend off Sungjae Im and claim his first victory on the PGA Tour. The excitement came on the 72nd hole when Munoz, the tournament’s 54-hole leader by one, drained a 15-footer for birdie to force a playoff.

Four of the top five on the final leaderboard were International players as it marked the second straight week a South American golfer was the last man standing.

  • Last year’s Winning Score: -18, 270
  • Last Year’s Cut Line: -3, 141

My Sanderson Farms Championship Pick

75 wasn’t what Adam Long had in mind for Sunday’s final round at Corales Golf Course, but it’ll be a valuable lesson for the recently turned 33-year-old Duke product.

The 2019 Desert Classic winner played stellar golf throughout 2020 – finishing 31st in the FedEx Cup standings. Any concerns about a lull following the letdown from barely missing out on the TOUR Championship can be erased thanks to his 13th-place showing at the US Open.

After tacking on a 5th in Punta Cana, it’s quite evident that Long is playing some pretty dependable golf.

Throw in his familiarity with this layout (23rd at the 2019 Sanderson Farms Championship) and it would seem that his +3300 price tag is worth buying stock.

Consider that Adam is lurking at +3000 at some of the other top golf sportsbooks, and beware of a confident golfer who’s been knocking on the door.
