Picks to win

Tiger Woods

Last week on this house, I wrote that I used to be tempted to take Tiger in Tampa. (Granted, even that prediction pales compared to Harig taking Casey for the win.) I additionally wrote that I would save him for Bay Hill, the place he is gained eight instances earlier than. Well, right here we’re — and contemporary off a T-2, there is no motive to again off my choose now. — Jason Sobel

Justin Rose

A late stumble at the Valspar Championship price him an opportunity at victory, however the Englishman nonetheless tied for fifth — his 12th top-10 end in his final 12 worldwide begins. That contains three victories. After taking a month off following the Farmers Insurance Open, he seems on monitor once more and has had success at Bay Hill, the place he completed second in 2013. — Bob Harig

DraftKings worth picks

Francesco Molinari

History reads off as T7-T9-T17-T5 in his final 4 appearances right here, and despite the fact that the type is not the place I would prefer it to be, I believe he is in play in all codecs. He’s a powerful minimize maker in most fields and on this course (course historical past appears to matter right here) he presents the upside we’re wanting for in tournaments. — Taras Pitra

Charles Howell III

There are plenty of nice choices this week in the $7k vary, however Howell II is one among the most constantly strong performers. He has made the minimize right here at Bay Hill in every of his final 9 appearances whereas recording 4 top-25 finishes. He has solely missed one minimize to this point this season (Honda Classic) and has a T20 at Career Builder and T6 at Farmers. I particularly like him in money video games as a result of his $7,500 price ticket offers you a strong cut-maker with upside and saves some wage cap house for different high-end choices. — Jeff Bergerson

Emiliano Grillo

Although Grillo pale down the stretch at the Hero Indian Open and is flying throughout the world to play this week, he nonetheless provides wonderful worth at his price ticket. He’s received a T7 and T17 in his solely two efforts right here and has but to overlook a minimize this season. Of his eight PGA occasions, Grillo has two top-10s, together with at a really robust Honda Classic the place he completed T8. Grillo performs nicely on robust programs and might play in the wind, and is a really robust second-shot golfer. Outside 175 yards, the Argentinian is 10-under (95 makes an attempt). He’s discovering 71.01% of greens in regulation, and is having a miracle season along with his putter, which could possibly be scary; Grillo is often a bottom-100 participant on the greens, however this season is close to the high. Either that is an indication of improved play – in spite of everything, Grillo is simply 25 years outdated – or early-season variance, however his price ticket makes it price the threat to seek out out. — Adam Daly

Kiradech Aphibarnrat

Newer every day fantasy PGA gamers might not be terribly conversant in the ‘Barn Rat’, however he is been superb of late, choosing up a win at the Super Six final month and a powerful fifth place end at the WGC Mexico two weeks in the past. He’s conversant in Bay Hill, the place he completed in sixth place in each 2015 and 2016. Aphibarnrat has made huge enhancements in his iron play over the final couple of years, which has led to a gentle stream of high quality finishes along with his world rating hitting a profession excessive of 31st after his win final week on the Asian Development Tour. He’s nonetheless more likely to be underowned in most codecs, however has loads of upside at a discount value. — Zach Turcotte

The Arnold Palmer Invitational units as much as be one other great spot for Luke List after high quality fantasy performances in the Valspar Championship, Honda Classic, Genesis Open, Waste Management Phoenix Open and Farmers Insurance Open. Rating close to the high in BOB% and Par 5 Scoring, List ought to do his fair proportion of scoring at the Bay Hill Club and Lodge. He additionally has proven respectable upside on this occasion when his full sport is working as evidenced by his T17 end final yr. List can typically be a risky PGA DFS play, however with a excessive chance of creating the minimize and taking part in into the weekend, his scoring skills alone ought to repay his $9,200 wage on FanDuel. — Erik Dantoft
