Rory McIlroy will attempt to defend his title and come back this week to 2019 Arnold Palmer Invitational. McIlroy fired in the eighth place under the eighth final round to win last year's three-round event on Bryson DeChambeau, and the four-time major champion is Vegas's favorite at 8. -1 in the last 2019 Arnold Palmer Invitational. The first tee of Arnold Palmer Invitational of 2019 is Thursday morning from sunny Florida. Golfers outside the United States have won this event for three consecutive years, with Australia's Marc Leishman and Jason Day having emerged victorious ahead of Northern Ireland, McIlroy. A player you will not find in the Arnold Palmer Invitational field in 2019 is Tiger Woods, who retired on Monday with a neck injury. Before blocking any Arnold Palmer Invitational 2019 collection or participating in a PFS DFS tournament on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings, be sure to see the PGA predictions from the proven SportsLine computer model.
The SportsLine prediction model, made by DFS pro Mike McClure, has nailed four of the eight majors over the weekend and called Tiger Woods deep run in the PGA championship despite being a 25-1 long shot. The model was perfect at the start of the 2018-19 season. He was on top of champion Dustin Johnson at the WGC-Mexico Championship 2019, projecting him as one of the first two contenders since the start. He also correctly predicted the victory of Brooks Koepka (9-1) in the CJ Cup at the start of this season. In addition, he correctly called Bryson DeChambeau's seven-round victory (9-1) at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic in 2019. Anyone who has followed the model is huge.
Now that the Arnold Palmer Invitational 2019 field is blocked, SportsLine has simulated the event 10,000 times and the results have been amazing. A big shock for which the model is asking: McIlroy, the defending champion and the best Las Vegas favorite on the 2019 board Arnold Palmer Invitational, makes a good performance but can not win the title.
So far in the PGA 2018-19 program, McIlroy has already racked up four first 10 placings. And despite having 14 wins in the career PGA Tour, he finished top of the rankings once since 2016.
Despite his hot start to the new season, McIlroy enters the 2019 Arnold Palmer Classic on 171th place in the PGA Tour with a driving accuracy rate (57.39), which could cause big problems at Bay Hill. His inability to keep the ball in the fairway from the tee will leave McIlroy climbing up the famous Palmer Championship Course. It is not a strong choice to win everything and there are much better values in this field loaded than the 8-1 prize that he is commanding.
Another surprise: Bryson DeChambeau, a long shot 18-1, makes a good run for the title. It's a target for anyone looking for a big payday.
DeChambeau has started to climb to start the new program of the PGA Tour, recording four first 15 positions in five official departures of the PGA Tour. He opened the new season with a victory at Shriners Hospitals for Children Open at TPC Summerlin, the fifth victory of the PGA 25 year tour.
In addition, DeChambeu, which earned a world-wide ranking of golf number 5, had a great success at Bay Hill in his brief career on the PGA Tour. In fact, DeChambeu was the star of this event last weekend before finishing second to McIlroy with a score of 15 points. And with 96 birdies in just 20 rounds of golf this season, DeChambeu is a long player who can climb the 2019 Arnold Palmer Invitational chart in a hurry.
In addition, the model says that three other golfers with 2019 Arnold Palmer Invitational with odds of 18-1 or more make a good run for the title. Anyone who supports these losers could hit him big.
