You can find the latest odds and relevant information for the WGC Match Play event here.
The Dell Technologies Match Play is the 24th and final WGC event on the calendar this year, and it will feature players from the European, PGA and Japan Golf Tour. A field of 64 players will be in action at the event, with the world ranking points making up the field of players that will be in action.
This year’s event will be the final edition of the WGC Match Play, with $20 million available in the purse. It will be staged at Austin Country Club in Texas, with players competing across a total length of 7,108 yards. The event is a par 71, with the winner picking up their share of $3.6 million of the prize fund.
There is a fascinating outlook to the betting for the event this weekend, with Scottie Scheffler leading the prices at BetXchange. The American is currently a 9/1 chance, with Jon Rahm and Rory McIlroy the second and third choices in the latest betting at 11/1 and 12/1, respectively.
There is a slight difference in price away from the top three in the betting, with Patrick Cantlay and Colin Morikwa both available at 20/1. Viktor Hovland is currently available at 22/1, which is the same price as Max Homa, Xander Schauffele, and Jordan Spieth.
Scottie Scheffler looks to be the right favourite for the event this weekend, as he has been very impressive in the previous two editions of the event in Austin. The American won the event 12 months ago, as he finished a few shots clear of Kevin Kisner. Scheffler also finished second in the event in 2021, as he fell short of Billy Horschel by a two and one scoreline.
Rory McIlroy also looks a solid contender this weekend. The Northern Irish player won the event back in 2015, but that year’s edition was held at Harding Park in California. He also finished second in the event in 2012 when it was held at Dove Mountain in Arizona. Other previous winners of the event around its current home include Kevin Kisner, who won in 2019, and Bubba Watson, who claimed victory in the event in 2018.
Dell Technologies Match Play Prediction
The top three players in the betting all come into this event in excellent recent form. However, we are prepared to side with Jon Rahm. The Spanish star finished second in the event in 2017, and has already been playing some of the best golf of his career this year; claiming victories in the Genesis Open, The American Express, and the Tournament of Champions.
