Odds To Win: 2018 Sony Open

Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas are the only two players in this week’s field with a world ranking in the top 10, so it’s not a huge surprise to see the young American stars listed as the heavy favorites to win the Sony Open.

Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas

Spieth, the 2017 Open Champion, has been given odds of 5/1 to lift the Sony trophy on Sunday night. Thomas, the reigning Sony and PGA Champion, is right behind at 7/1.

Aussie Marc Leishman, a two-time winner in 2017, is listed with odds of 14-1. A pair of American veterans, Brian Harman and Kevin Kisner, are at 18-1 and the only other players with odds better than 20/1.

Our payoff pick is Zach Johnson at 33/1. The two-time major champion is coming off a T8 at the RSM Classic, and has also played well in his two other starts this season (T23 at OHL Classic and T13 at Safeway). Johnson posted a T6 (-17) at last year’s Sony Open, including a 61 in the second round.
