Defending Zurich Classic champions Jon Rahm / Ryan Palmer open as favorites this week with Xander Scheatele / Patrick Cantlay +650 behind them at the top of the table.

Team Cameron Smith / Marc Leishman +1400, Collin Morikawa / Matthew Wolf +1400, Bubba Watson / Scottie Scheffler +1600 and Tony Finau / Cameron Champ +1800 round out the top spot this week.

The Rahm / Palmer team is hard to ignore as they stood out as a duo and are the only top tier team that has partnered with this event before.

ScHotele / Cantlay have worked together before, as they teamed up at the 2019 Presidents Cup in Australia.

The Smith / Leishman Australian team is intriguing this week as the two have games that should complement each other and both have played well in recent starts. Cameron already won this event in the team format with Jonas Blixt also in 2017.

The South African team of Louis Oosthuizen / Charl Schwartzel +2800 seems an interesting option this week, the two already played this event together in 2019. The team stands out this week in a Mid-Tier that also includes the debutant team Viktor Hovland / Kristoffer Ventura +4500, as well as the reunited pair of Ryder Cup teammates at Justin Rose / Henrik Stenson +4500.

Viktor ranks third on the field in his last twenty-four laps in the hitting department and after several slow starts in recent events, he looked like he was turning a corner after a great first performance at the Masters.
