The Sentry predictions with 14/1 and 28/1 each-way golf tips

The changes to the FedEx Cup format mean that the PGA Tour’s wraparound season is no more with this week’s curtain-raiser, the Sentry, signalling the start of the 2024 FedEx Cup season which culminates in the Tour Championship in August.

The tournament, hosted as it has been since 1999 at the Plantation Course at Kapalua Resort, Hawaii, is also the first of eight signature events which the PGA Tour hopes “will bring together the game’s top players, pitting them on historic courses to play for elevated purses.”

Rory McIlroy is a notable absentee but a 59-man field featuring the remaining eligible 2023 PGA Tour winners and the rest of last season’s FedEx top 50 will be teeing it up in the Aloha State.

We’ve got two each-way tips for this week’s tournament paying out at 14/1 and 28/1 respectively. All prices come from bet365, and new customers can take advantage of their sign-up offer using the button below.

The Sentry predictions & betting tips

The Sentry each-way bet 1 – Max Homa 14/1

The Plantation Course, a rare par 73 with massive fairways, has been tamed by big hitters in the past but seven of the eight editions of the Sentry were won with a total of at least -22, so the champion is required to putt well and get up and down around huge greens.

World number one Scottie Scheffler returned to form last time out with a win at the Hero
World Challenge and he’s a huge threat if his putting stroke stays solid but that’s not certain to be the case, while Viktor Hovland has struggled to make much previous impact at Kapalua.

Those further down the list appeal more beginning with Max Homa, who arrives in Maui for a fourth crack at this title having compiled progressive event form figures of 25-15-3 from visits in 2020, 2022 and last year.

Homa’s steady improvement at Kapalua is in keeping with his career trajectory over the last few seasons and he prepares to tee it up in his fourth Sentry as a member of the world’s top ten for the first time.

The current world number seven has no real weaknesses and his blend of driving power and short-game touch is particularly well suited to the Plantation Course, as he demonstrated when finding only LIV Golf-bound Jon Rahm and Collin Morikawa too strong 12 months ago.

Homa was in superb form in the second half of 2023, winning the Nedbank Challenge in South Africa on his penultimate start, and he can begin the new year with a seventh PGA Tour title.

The Sentry each-way bet 2 – Matt Fitzpatrick 28/1

Matt Fitzpatrick enjoyed a fine end to 2023, winning the Dunhill Links a week after playing his part in Europe’s Ryder Cup win before finishing fourth at the World Challenge last month.

The Englishman was seventh on his Kapalua debut a year ago and there is every chance he builds on that effort given his brilliant short-game skills.
