Best bets for The Genesis Invitational

By Wes Reynolds  (Point Spread Weekly) 

Daniel Berger was on the wrong side of the Thursday-Friday weather draw but overcame that to win last week’s AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am by two shots at 14-1. Berger’s four eagles, two in the final round, and 88% scrambling mark for the week propelled him to victory and a career-high 13th place in the Official World Golf Ranking. He is in the field for this week’s Genesis Invitational at a price of 35-1. 
The Genesis field is arguably the strongest so far in 2021, with 12 of the top 15 in the OWGR in Los Angeles. World No. 1 Dustin Johnson (11-2) won at Riviera in 2017 and is a two-time runner-up to go along with nine top-10s and six top-5s over his last 12 appearances. World No. 2 Jon Rahm (12-1) had a top-10 here two years ago and comes in off a week of rest, like most of the top players. Rory McIlroy has finished in the top 5 here in back-to-back years and is priced at 14-1 along with 2019 Genesis runner-up Justin Thomas and Xander Schauffele, who enters with back-to-back seconds in San Diego and Phoenix. Bryson DeChambeau (16-1) garnered a top-5 finish here last year, and Patrick Cantlay (18-1), who was fourth here in 2018, has finished third (Pebble Beach) and second (American Express) in his last two events. Brooks Koepka (25-1) won in Phoenix two weeks ago but has not factored here in two appearances. Tony Finau (28-1) was the 2018 runner-up and comes in with a form of 2-2-4 in his last three events. Adam Scott (35-1), who won here in 2005, is the defending Genesis Invitational champion.
