Jordan Spieth popular among bettors ahead of AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am

When it comes to capitalizing on this special week on the PGA TOUR, there’s few better than Jordan Spieth.

The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am sees players join celebrities at some of the country’s most scenic courses at Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hill and Monterey Peninsula Country Club before dividing the field for the final round at Pebble Beach.

Spieth won the 2017 edition and has finished in the top 10 for the last three years, including a second place finish a year ago. Overall, he made the cut all 10 times while playing at the event.

No wonder Spieth is one of the most popular players at BetMGM Online Sports Betting. As of Tuesday, he has most tickets (5.8%) under control (8.1%).

Spieth has the second best golf chances to win at +1000, only behind Matt Fitzpatrick (+900). At number 10, Fitzpatrick is the highest-ranked player in the world in this field.

All three courses, particularly Pebble Beach, are known for their small greens, meaning there is more emphasis on iron shots and good performance around the green. Not many players have better short games than Spieth, so it’s no surprise that he usually plays well in this tournament.

Spieth starts the week with his best result of the 2022-23 season, a T15, at the Sentry Tournament of Champions. He led the field through 18 holes at the Sony Open in Hawaii, only to fade and miss the cut in the second round.

Defending champion Tom Hoge (+2000) is another popular game.

Hoge has the fourth most tickets (3.7%) and the second most holds (7.5%). In addition to his win a year ago, he finished 12th in 2021. He’s one of the most underrated iron players on the TOUR, which certainly helps him on these courses.
