Main Favorites to Win the 2022 Genesis Invitational

Same as with the last couple of PGA Tour events, the world #1 Jon Rahm is leading the way. He is the betting favorite to win his first tournament in 2022. The odds of +900 do look tempting, but Rahm has failed the bettors too many times already this season.

Just behind him is Patrick Cantlay, the man who reached the playoff at the Phoenix Open last week. Collin Morikawa is also in the mix, as well as Rory McIlroy.

Speaking of McIlroy, a legendary Northern Irish golfer. The man finished in a disappointing 18th place at his most recent PGA Tour event (Hero World Challenge). However, we saw him do very well, finishing at the 2022 Dubai Desert Classic in third place.

2022 Genesis Invitational Prediction

In 2022, Patrick Cantlay might be the very best golfer on the planet. Ahead of the 2022 Genesis Invitational, he’s sitting in the #3 position in the World Rankings. However, winning this tournament would mean making a strong claim on the #1 position for Cantlay.

He surely has the skills to win this event, not to mention that his form in 2022 has been pretty good. Last weekend, he fell short in the playoff. Further, before that, we saw him finish in the top 10 in four straight tournaments.

Considering that Cantlay odds are +1200, backing him seems like a good betting option.

Pick: Patrick Cantlay (+1200)
