At +900 odds, Thomas will be a popular sports betting pick this week. Hell, Quail Hollow does not play like Quail Hollow anymore. That's a significant difference, and worth spending up for. After a final round 69 at The Masters his last time out, I like him as a low owned play with plenty of upside this week. Simpson presents a ton of upside at $8,400. Before that, he finished 9th in his last showing on the course in 2012.

While away from it, though, he reflected and analyzed what didn't go right at the Masters after he'd played so well in the lead-up. He's also no stranger to Quail Hollow too, as the Carolina native has top 20 finishes in his last two tries here.

Lahiri began the season late a year ago well with Top-10s at CIMB Classic and CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges, but since has been found wanting. Since then, the course has undergone sweeping renovations before hosting the US PGA Championship in 2017.

Paul Casey ranks fifth in this field in strokes gained tee-to-green and is also inside the top 10 in total driving, which measures both driving distance and accuracy. This is a stacked field this week, with numerous world's best coming to Quail Hollow as a tune-up for The Players next week.

Ronaldo forced a save from Ulreich at the other end before Ramos headed into the side-netting from the resulting corner. Keylor Navas made a spectacular save on David Alaba from a tight angle just moments after Madrid's goal.

Francesco Molinari ($7,400): Take a long look at the golfers in the low-mid 7K range. Players must score on the Par 5's to put themselves in position to contend over the weekend. And here's who we got as our top two plays for this week at the Wells... He led through 36 at the PGA Championship before finishing in 5th, and his other three trips to Quail Hollow resulted in T11 (2016), T20 (2015), and T38 (2014). There's a good chance of this being the week. The par-3 17th over water and par-4 18th with a creek running alongside the left of the fairway pose problems for most players. Molinari will look to repeat his performance from past year, and maybe finish one spot higher. While that might not seem significant, Woods has already assured himself of a top-125 finish and is in excellent position to progress through the four-tournament FedEx Cup playoffs. He's certainly leading the conversation for most improved player this year. Phil's T36 finish was disappointing, given all the hype Lefty was bringing with him to Augusta.

Organizers say they want to get the word out that this is a family-friendly event.

'It's a course where you have to stand up and hit the shots if you're going to do well, ' he said. Learn about the mission of DKMS and compete nightly for World Series tickets this Major League Baseball season on FantasyDraft.
