Safeway Open 2018 odds: What are Brendan Steele's chances of pulling off a historic three-peat?

There are no weeks off when it comes to the PGA Tour. Quite literally. Just a couple days after the conclusion of the Ryder Cup, and a week after the Tour Championship, the fall season commences Thursday on the North Course at Silverado Resort and Spa in Napa, Calif., with the Safeway Open.

This will be the PGA Tour debut for many of the rookies graduating from the Web.com Tour, so you might not recognize as many names as you’re used to knowing. Only two players from the top 50 in the world will tee it up this week (Patrick Cantlay and Phil Mickelson). Given that fact, there might be more value when it comes to the Safeway Open odds than normal weeks.

California native Brendan Steele has won the previous two Safeway Opens. Can he make it three in a row? He’d become the first player since 2011 to three-peat at the same event, when Steve Stricker took down his third consecutive John Deere Classic. The odds give him a 40-1 chance of doing so—Steele missed the cut in four of his five final events of the year. And he finished inside the top 40 in only one of his final 10 events of the season. So it might be a surprise to some to see him with one of the better odds of the week, according to oddsmakers.
