AND THE STAGE IS SET. Not only is Rory continuing to look like a player of destiny sitting atop the leaderboard heading into Sunday, we also have 4 other outright winner picks inside the top 15 and virtually all of our other future finishing position bets are looking J.U.I.C.Y. right now. We finished +0.71 units on the day Saturday (making us +3.503 units for the tournament and +24.778 units on the year) which means Side Hustle Bets has now posted 13 profitable rounds out of 15 for the season.
It’s truly been an honor and a privilege riding the lightning with all of our loyal patrons this golf majors season. Let’s finish strong tomorrow. Pat yourselves on the back for waking up so early the past few days, set your alarms for tomorrow’s final round and always remember to bet smarter, not harder.
4th Round Bets
4th Round Matchups
2 Way Parlay (+165) (0.5 units): Will Zalatoris to beat Nicolai Hojgaard/Tony Finau to beat Adri Arnaus
We put together this nifty little parlay to take advantage of the run we think Zalatoris could make tomorrow as well as Tony Finau’s preference for playing on Sundays. Nothing has come easy for Zalatoris up to this point but even if he isn’t able to make the leaders sweat tomorrow it’s still hard to think he won’t put a solid round together that would best Nicolai Hojgaard. Tony Finau is 3rd on tour in 4th Round Scoring Average, he plays great on links courses and he’s somewhat of an afterthought now sitting at -2 and teeing off bright and early tomorrow morning. It feels like there could be some value being slept on there against Adri Arnaus, a relatively inexperienced player who’s averaging over par scores in final rounds this season
4th Round Props
Scottie Scheffler – To Shoot Under 70.5 (-120) (1 unit): Scottie posted his third round under 70 today and he’s done just enough to stay in contention heading into Sunday. He hasn’t had his best stuff all week and we’ve definitely seen some frustration on his face at times but that honestly makes me feel even more confident that he’ll at least break 71 tomorrow. He’s played pretty average for his standards so far and he still hasn’t posted any rounds over 69… That’s just talent taking over right there. Someone’s bound to go very low on Sunday given the preferable weather conditions so if Scheffler can get his putter to cooperate tomorrow and avoid danger off the tee then he could easily post a score in the low to mid 60s.
Jordan Spieth – To Shoot Under 70.5 (-110) (1 unit): Spieth has looked solid all week, he’s posted back to back rounds under 70 and he’ll be paired up with Patrick Cantlay tomorrow (who I also think has a chance to go low on Sunday). Spieth is clearly comfortable at links courses (British Opens specifically) and he’s in a position currently that offers him a “nothing to lose” type mindset heading into his final round. He should see softer conditions on the course tomorrow thanks to some light rain in the morning so there’s not much holding him back from attacking the Old Course on Sunday. My biggest concern with Spieth has always been his mental game so I feel pretty confident that he’s in a position to succeed tomorrow considering he’s sitting 8 shots back from the lead and just outside the final pairings (so not much pressure).
Winning Score -21 Or Better (+120) (0.5 units): This bet’s pretty simple. The weather report tomorrow is calling for light rain in the morning which should soften up the course/allow players to attack the greens and they’re only calling for light winds throughout the day which should dissipate heading into the afternoon. The last groups should have absolutely ideal course conditions and McIlroy/Hovland will both look to hit the gas right from the jump. I’m expecting their 3rd round pairing rematch on Sunday to continue to look more like match play than stroke play considering their 4 shot lead on the rest of the field after Saturday. Both players currently sit at -16 and both players have averaged rounds better than -5 all week so it’s hard to think the current tournament record of -20 won’t fall on Sunday. It’s also worth mentioning that Rory is tied for 3rd on tour in 4th Round Scoring Average and this is the best Viktor Hovland’s game around the greens has looked all year. Expect both to massacre the Old Course tomorrow.
