Arnold Palmer Invitational Tips and Previews, Thursday 3rd March

All the best bets and players to watch for the $12,000,000 Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill Gold Course in Florida.

The PGA Tour remains in Florida for the 2022 Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill Golf Course. 

The course itself is a par 72 measuring 7,454 yards. 

With long and tough par threes making it hard to find cheap birdies, while the par fours offer further challenges, with tree-lined fairways requiring tee-shots that are in the right part of the carpet. 

The BetDeluxe team has found all the best bets and players to watch.

He has been lurking in the shadows during 2022.

Rory McIlroy looks set to pounce on the Arnold Palmer Invitational after T-10 finish at the Genesis Invitational a fortnight ago. 

It was his lone performance for the season thus far and can be used as a building platform for an assault at Bay Hill. 

His start prior to his Genesis Invitational effort was a victory in the CJ Cup in October of 2021. 

It marked his 20th Tour win and highlighted his form is back to somewhere near his best. 

Let’s not forget, he won this event back in 2018, so he knows exactly what it takes to handle the long par threes and tricky par fours. 

Suggested Bet: Rory McIlroy win at $12

The reigning Waste Management Phoenix Open champion had been building towards a big win prior to this triumph in the desert last month. 

The world number six golfer has had a bit of time since his victory and is now poised to make his run at Bay Hill. 

He had been plugging away respectfully through the PGA Tour with countless Top 20 finishes to his name, but it was the tournament win that was hard to come by. 

Now that he has the ‘money off his back’ with regards to collecting the winning cheque of a PGA Tour event, he can play with plenty of freedom. 

His ability to handle the pressure of big crowds and a winning margin will hold him in good stead for Bay Hill. 

He responded with the Phoenix win by banking a T-7 finish at the Genesis Invitational and,  as he said himself, he is ‘well rested’ and ready to fire on all cylinders. 

Suggested Bet: Scottie Scheffler win at $17

Veteran Australian golfer Adam Scott hits the Bay Hill course flourishing after a strong T-4 at the Genesis Invitational. 

Scott managed 14 under par as his fast start to 2022 continued. 

The world number 36 shapes up well, statistically speaking, to have a big crack at winning this tournament.

Six of the past seven winners have had a previous top-five finish at this event and Scott ticks that box. 

Scott has placed third at this tournament twice over his illustrious career and will bring in a heap of confidence knowing he is in form and plays this course and event well. 

He’s recorded two top-nine results in three starts so far in 2022. 

Definitely worth a play at the odds. 

Suggested Bet: Adam Scott win at $29

sepp straka

austria

Going against the trend a little here and siding with Sepp Straka a huge odds despite not having amazing at this course.

Straka produced a career-best performance at the Honda Classic last week when scooting to one-shot victory. 

It meant he has now cracked the Top 100 in the PGA Tour. 

His form at Bay Hill reads two missed cuts, but he has never approached this course under the current form he sees himself in.

Suggested Bet: Sepp Straka win at $70
