SportsLine simulated the 2019 Farmers Insurance Open 10,000 times, and there are some big surprises. This proprietary computer model, which was built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has nailed four of the last eight majors entering the weekend and called Tiger Woods' deep run in the 2018 PGA Championship despite being a 25-1 long shot.
The model has been spot-on early in the 2018-19 PGA season. It was all over Jon Rahm (12-1) at the 2018 Hero World Challenge, projecting him as a top contender from the start. It also correctly predicted Brooks Koepka's (9-1) victory at the 2018 CJ Cup earlier this season. Anyone who has followed the model is up HUGE.
Now, it has simulated the 2019 Farmers Insurance Open and there were some HUGE surprises.
One huge shocker the model is calling for: Rory McIlroy, a four-time major champion and one of the Vegas favorites, barely cracks the top 5. Another surprise: Marc Leishman, a 20-1 long shot, makes a serious run at the title. He has a much better chance to win it all than his odds imply, so he's a target for anyone looking for a huge payday.
Also, the model says three additional golfers with odds of 20-1 or longer make a strong run at the title. Anyone who bets on these underdogs could hit it BIG.
So who should you jump on for the 2019 Farmers Insurance Open? And which HUGE long shots make a serious run at winning it all? ... Join SportsLine right now to see the entire projected leaderboard, plus see where Tiger Woods finishes this week, all from the model that nailed the winner of four golf majors!
