Sunday’s final round of the Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club should provide plenty of excitement, with Billy Horschel and Lucas Glover co-leading the event at 18-under par.

Russell Henley (17-under) is just behind them, followed by Byeong hun-An at 15-under. Glover, a major champion, is trying to win for the first time since 2021 and sneak into the FedEx Cup playoffs, while Horschel will also likely need a victory to reach the top 70 of the standings in order to qualify.

There are a plethora of head-to-head matchups on sportsbooks between varying calibers of players tomorrow. We’ll provide three betting tips for a few we viewed as lopsided.
