Bets to win

Patrick Reed (14-1; -125 Top 20 at DraftKings)

Bearman: If you had Reed in your matchup with Sergio Garcia last week, you were not happy after Round 1, being down six shots. But Reed quietly put together a solid final round, finished with a seven-birdie, one-bogey 64 on Sunday to climb up the leaderboard (and beat Garcia by a shot). He hit 13 of 14 fairways and 15 of 18 greens on Sunday, and if he continues that trend, you’ll see him near the top at Detroit Country Club. He missed the cut at Harbour Town but finished tied for seventh at Colonial, won in Mexico and grabbed another top-10 at Torrey Pines before the break. Plus, he has something not many others have in the one-year history of the event: a top-5 finish here last year.
