Northern Trust Tips and Predictions: Best Bet 🏆
Bryson Dechambeau looks like the man to beat here. The 26-year-old American was triumphant in the 2018 edition of the Northern Trust and has been in impressive form during recent outings.
Dechambeau won the Rocket Mortgage a couple of months ago and scored his first Major top 10 finish when he came fourth in the PGA Championship. Ranking first in Going for the Green and Birdie Average, along with third for Putting Average and fourth for par 5 Birdies or Better, Dechambeau has the stats and recent performances to justify a big tournament in Boston and he will almost certainly be there or thereabouts come Sunday.
Northern Trust Tips and Predictions: Next Best 🥈
There’s definite value in backing Colin Morikawa in Boston. The 23-year-old added the PGA Championship to his Workday Charity victory last month and comes into this tournament fresh after taking a break last week.
Morikawa’s Wood and Iron game has improved considerably and he ranks 3rd in SG: Tee to Green and 13th in Scoring Average. If he can continue his recent form, he will be in the conversation on Sunday.
Northern Trust Tips and Predictions: Value Bet 💰
Daniel Berger has been excellent since returning to action, winning the first PGA Tour tournament played after the global pandemic at the Charles Schwab Challenge, while he’s also finished in the top 13 in seven of the last eight tournaments he’s contested, including finishing 2nd in St Jude and 3rd in the RBC Heritage.
Berger is fourth on SG: Total and one-putt percentage with 43.91 and should be pushing for a top 10 finish in Boston. He’s certainly worth a punt each-way.
