The Sanderson Farms Championship is a professional golf tournament on the PGA Tour, played annually in Mississippi. It moved to the Country Club of Jackson in Jackson in autumn 2014, early in the 2015 season
There are no victory laps in gambling, so we’ll only briefly give the credit due to our panel of experts, four of whom marked Joaquin Niemann as their winner last week. We called it a consensus pick, a bold play in a golf field without big names such as Brooks Koepka or Rory McIlroy in the field. Niemann started the fall season strong for us, and we’re onto finding the next winner.
Our collection of experts: an anonymous PGA Tour caddie offering insight from on-site at Sanderson Farms this week, thanks to our partnership with The Caddie Network; The Action Network’s senior writer Jason Sobel, who writes for the sports handicapping site that offers premium analysis for bettors; two of the most respected experts in the daily-fantasy community, Pat Mayo of DraftKings and Brandon Gdula of FanDuel; Lee Alldrick of FanShare Sports, which tracks DFS ownership and sentiment; and Columbia University senior lecturer and Ph.D. Lou Riccio, who uses predictive analysis and modeling to forecast winners in golf.
This expert panel correctly predicted last season’s first tournament, too, so we’re proud of that pattern. Alright, and allow us to brag just a little more: Our experts didn’t lose any of their matchup bets last week (there was one push, the rest cashed), and Mayo hit a sizable 16-1 bet on a top-10 (Robby Shelton). OK, bragging is done. We’re focused on continuing that momentum with a strong fall, including this week at the Country Club of Jackson.
