Facebooktwittermail

The 2019 St. Jude Invitational gets underway at TPC Southwind in Memphis, Tennessee on Thursday night and we are set for an interesting tournament.

This is the first WGC Invitational that has been held at this course and this tournament could be determined by how well certain players have backed up from the British Open last weekend.

We have analysed the entire field and our 2019 St. Jude Invitational tips can be found below.

2019 St. Jude Invitational Betting

There is currently a three-way battle for favouritism in 2019 St. Jude Invitational Betting and Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy are all $11.

Jon Rahm is on the second line of betting at $12 from Justin Thomas at $15, Justin Rose at $19 and Patrick Cantlay at $21.

2019 St. Jude Invitational Tips

Dustin Johnson ($11)

Dustin Johnson has won the St Jude Invitational on two previous occasions and he was nothing short of dominant when he shot 19 under 12 months ago.

He definitely wasn’t at his best at the British Open, but this is a much better course for him and he was excellent in both The Masters and the PGA Championship earlier this year.

Johnson generally produces his best at World Golf Championships event and he is the player to beat at $11.

Justin Thomas ($15)

Scoring on Par 4 and Par 5 holes are very important at this course and no player has scored better on these type of holes in 2019 to date than Justin Thomas.

Thomas has not won a tournament during 2019 to date, but he has had five top ten finishes and he heads into this event on the back of an impressive effort at the British Open.

$15 is over the odds and it would surprise to see him finish outside the top ten.

Phil Mickelson ($81)

Phil Mickelson has not won the St Jude Invitational, but he has gone close on a number of occasions and he has shown, at times, this season that he is still capable of competing with the very best in the world.

He has missed three cuts in a row and he was poor at the British Open, but the ability is still there and he showed that when he won the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am earlier this year.

The $81 currently available is over the odds.
