2022 Genesis Invitational Betting & DFS Preview

2022 Genesis Invitational Betting & DFS Preview

After a wild tournament and playoff finish at TPC Scottsdale, the Tour heads back to California for the Genesis Invitational and the final event of the West Coast Swing. Built in 1926 in the Santa Monica Mountain Canyon, just outside of Los Angeles, there are many ways to describe Riviera Country Club. It typically plays firm and fast, has tree-lined doglegs with tight fairways and is a shot-makers course with numerous risk-reward holes.

We have a “major-syle” field at Riviera this week as 35 of the top-50 ranked players in the world will tee it up at the Genesis Invitational. That includes every single one of the top 10 players in the world, which hardly ever happens for a regular Tour event.

Since it is an "Invitational", the field will be capped at 120 players with no Monday qualifier. The purse will be one of the highest of any non-Major event this season. The winner will receive a three-year PGA Tour status exemption instead of the typical two-year standard.

While this is one of the tougher courses to score on, and typically has a “big boy” field, the average odds of the winner has been +8100 with multiple longshots winning over the past 12 events. Other than Dustin Johnson winning at +900 back in 2017, recent winners have been more in the mid-to-low tier range, which is where most of my betting outrights will come.
