Valero Texas Open odds 2022: Jordan Spieth among the favorites despite recent struggles


Kevin C. Cox

This time last year, Jordan Spieth was just beginning to look like Jordan Spieth again. Then, at the Valero Texas Open, he fully completed his comeback, winning for the first time since the 2017 Open Championship. The following week, a T-3 at the Masters proved he was ready to start contending in majors again, too.

And yet, one year later, Spieth's game seems to be a bit of a mess again, which wasn't the case last month, when he finished runner-up at Pebble Beach. In his four starts since, he hasn't finished inside the top 25 once, and the best club in his bag—the putter—has been failing him.

But Spieth enters the 2022 Valero Texas Open as one of the betting favorites, likely because of his strong course history and the fact that the Masters is fast approaching, and even a broken Spieth can find the magic at Augusta National. No one would be surprised if he gets back on track at TPC San Antonio, where the three-time major champion is 14-1 to win outright (and those are the best odds you can find).

The only name ahead of Spieth's on the odds board as Rory McIlroy, the prohibitive favorite at +750 at almost every major sportsbook. McIlroy is the highest-ranked player in the field and the only player from the top 10 in the Official World Golf Ranking set to tee it up in Texas. Hideki Matsuyama, who will defend his Masters title next week, is in the field, too (Matsuyama is ranked No. 12 in the world). 

One final note: Bryson DeChambeau is back (again). After returning to competition at the Match Play, where he failed to make the Round of 16, DeChambeau will make his official stroke-play return this week. The last time he played in a stroke play event on th PGA Tour was the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines, where he missed the cut. Depending on the book, DeChambeau can be found anywhere between 20- and 25-1 to win the Valero. 

Below are the odds for every player in the field at the 2022 Valero Texas Open.
