Matt Vincenzi of the Action Network is liking the value of Paul Casey, Si Woo Kim, and Rickie Fowler. Casey has been solid of late, as he has finished inside the top 10 in all of his last three worldwide starts. After a T4 in the 2021 PGA Championship, he settled for a sixth-place finish in the 2021 Porsche European Open. He came back to US soil for the 2021 US Open and finished tied for seventh. Casey, who is +1600 to win the 2021 Travelers Championship at TopBet sportsbook, has four top 10s and a pair of runner-ups in six career starts there. Vincenzi also thinks that Kim (+4500) brings in a nice value because the South Korean appears to love playing on Pete Dye courses — on which Kim has won twice in the PGA TOUR. Last is Fowler (+6000), who has recovered from back-to-back missed cuts, as he finished with a T8 in the 2021 PGA Championship and a T11 in the 2021 Memorial Tournament.

Finau missed the cut in the 2021 US Open, but his seven top 10s are tied for third overall this year. The Salt Lake City native, however, has missed the cut in each of his last two appearances at the TPC River Highlands. Finau is +2800 to win this weekend.
Rob Bolton of PGA.com thinks that Bubba Watson has the best chance of winning the 2021 Travelers Championship, and for a good reason. Watson is the all-time leader in career winnings at TPC River Highlands with $4,735,133.02, thanks in large part to three wins there along with six top 10s and eight top 25s.

In his preview of the 2021 Travelers Championship, TopBet News Editor Ryan Simpson revealed that he is picking Brooks Koepka to win the tournament. Here’s what Simpson had to say about Koekpa:
“After missing the cut in the Palmetto Championship at Congaree, Koepka picked up the pieces and finished with a strong T4 in the 2021 US Open, scoring a 69 both in the first and final rounds. Koepka now has three top 5s in all of his last three events in which he made the cut, including a T2 in the 2021 World Golf Championships-Workday Championship at The Concession and in the 2021 PGA Championship.”
