2015 John Deere Classic Odds and Pick
No one should be shocked that Jordan Spieth leads the way as we approach the 2015 John Deere Classic. Spieth has claimed three events in a very successful 2015 season and is one of the hottest pro golfers, overall. Naturally, he’s got the best John Deere Classic odds (3/1) and should be the popular pick by many golf bettors to win in the latest event, which runs from July 9th to July 12th.
It’s going to be a wild four-day event, one that has numerous big names partaking in the festivities, which could open the door to someone not named Spieth taking the crown. Let’s take a look at the golfers with the best odds, as well as some sneaky sleepers:
Spieth leads the way (won the event in 2013), but there are several notable names with odds worth tracking. Zach Johnson lost this very event by one freaking shot in 2014 (9/1 odds) so he’ll be storming back to try to make up for what he probably thinks should be his. He also won the John Deere Classic back in 2012, so he’s not just a sexy pick that “came close” once.
Kevin Kisner and Ryan Moore are by far the next best picks given their odds (14/1 and 25/1, respectively). Kisner is a fun pick to finally get his first PGA title after 97 tries, and the odds may favor him after five top-five finishes, including a gutsy run at The Greenbrier Classic. Moore might be the safer pick even though the odds don’t support it, as he’s actually won a tourney this year and has two top-five finishes.
No one else has better than 30/1 odds to win this tourney, and that’s down to just Steve Stricker and Harris English. Stricker is oddly pushed down by the oddsmakers here and you have to believe it’s because of a weak 2015 run thus far (no top-10 finishes is six tries). He actually three-peated this event from 2009-2011, and while his run is probably over, he clearly knows this course.
English has enjoyed a solid 2015 run, as he carries three top-10 finishes into the 2015 John Deere Classic, but hasn’t finished better than 18th in his last eight tries.
If you’re looking for a sleeper with odds that can win you some nice cash, look no further than Brian Harman. His odds still aren’t insane but at 33/1 you’ll be mighty happy if you roll with him. He’s not an outlandish pick by any means, as he won the 2014 John Deere Classic and storms into the event with two top-10 finishes on the year.
David Hearn is another solid sleeper (55/1 odds) after he narrowly lost out at The Greenbrier Classic. Hearn is still going after his first PGA win and has locked down three top-10 finishes on the year.
An even deeper sleeper could be Scott Brown (66/1 odds), who has missed just one cut all year and had finished inside the top seven here two out of three tries.
The Pick: Jordan Spieth
He’s won the event already before and he may due to win again. Spieth narrowly tops Zach Johnson for me and has just been too dominant to ignore the odds.
