This week’s 2024 Zurich Classic of New Orleans, which features two-player teams, begins Thursday outside the Big Easy. Here’s our long-shot pick, the Zurich Classic odds, betting favorites and everything else you need to know.
This week’s PGA Tour event is unlike any other, and not in the way the Masters is. At the Zurich, two-man teams compete in four-ball and foursomes formats for a joint title and over $1 million each. Given the unique nature of the event, it’s notoriously difficult to pick a winner. For example, last year saw Nick Hardy and Davis Riley claim victory in what was both players’ first PGA Tour win.
With that in mind, we’re putting our long-shot hopes on the team of Beau Hossler and Sam Ryder, who start the week with +5000 odds to win.
Both players have had solid finishes at the Zurich in the past. Last year, Hossler teamed with Wyndham Clark to finish in solo third. Ryder finished third in 2022.
If you entrust $10 on Hossler and Ryder to win and they get it done, you’ll earn $500. For insurance, consider placing additional small bets on them to finish top 10 and top 20.
World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler isn’t in the field at the Zurich Classic, but leading the field is the formidable team of Xander Schauffele and Patrick Cantlay (+450), who have played together in the Ryder Cup.
They are trailed by their European Ryder Cup counterparts in World No. 2 Rory McIlroy and Shane Lowry (+750).
