On September 2nd the LIV Golf Invitational lands in Boston for its fourth three-day tournament of eight scheduled for 2022.

The unique 54-hole shotgun start has neutralized any weather bias and we have the team event to analyze as well as the normal singles one.

With no PGA Tour action this week, LIV Golf has the chance to take center stage in the current fight at the top of world golf.

LIV Invitational Boston

Friday, September 02 – Sunday, September 04, 2022 at The International

Par 72, 7138 yards

After last week’s announcements on the PGA Tour bringing a level of credence to the criticism countered towards them by Phil Mickelson a few months ago, LIV Golf will be puffing its chest out this week. Either way, this is a great time to be a golf fan or bettor with such a slew of top-class action each week.

The International Golf Course is known as very challenging to good amateurs, but it remains to be seen if the track challenges the world’s top pros.

The Oaks course is known for being always in pristine condition and has Bentgrass fairways and greens amongst tree-lined fairways.

What Form Guides Help?

It’s always a dilemma for golf bettors when we have a big event at a new track.

For this week, I am going to use good form in the Massachusetts area combined with a proven track record on Bentgrass Greens.

That Recipe Gives Dustin Johnson a Strong Look This Week

No doubt, Dustin Johnson fills the criteria we are looking for perfectly.

Firstly, Johnson won the event at the TPC Boston in 2020, a track he previously had a plethora of solid form at. The TPC Boston has Bentgrass greens and is set in similar agronomy.

Then, if you look through Johnson’s illustrious career, we see plenty of top form on Bentgrass greens with wins at Augusta National and Glen Abbey in Canada standing out.

Season Facts

We’ve already seen this season, that Johnson transitioned back into the big league well and indeed, has the best form of any LIV players in this year’s major championships.

Then, we see that he was runner-up in the Bedminster event and third in Portland so we can believe motivation isn’t too much of a problem for the thirty-eight-year-old from South Carolina. I suggest adding Dustin Johnson amongst your best golf bets for the Boston Invitational this week.

Will Louis continue the South African domination?

South African, Louis Oosthuizen looks to be having a whale of a time competing in the team format of the LIV Golf events with team Stinger GC.

He played with event winner, Charl Schwartzel at the Centurion Club while then playing with Brendan Grace in Portland when he won the event.

The Team Event

The team event is worth big bucks like the singles, so it’s been a profitable start to the LIV Golf career for the thirty-nine-year-old South African. To put the ‘cherry on the cake’, Louis Oosthuizen might be thinking it’s his turn for the winner’s enclosure of the singles event.

It is worth mentioning the fourth member of their team, Hennie Du Pleiss was runner-up in the singles at the Centurion Club’s debut LIV event in London but this time will be replaced by Shaun Norris.

If we need more power to our elbow for our golf pick on Louis Oosthuizen, it’s worth a look at his consistent level of form at the TPC Boston over the years with a runner up finish in 2012 being the highlight.

How to Bet on Louis Oosthuizen

That shows an aura of compatibility with the local surroundings and Bentgrass greens so add the former Open Champion, Louis Oosthuizen amongst your best bets this week at BMR.

Looking through our best sportsbooks I found Louis Oosthuizen at +2000 with Bovada (visit our Bovada Review) so add him amongst your best bets this week.

Trust that Bok team spirit at Stingers GC to shine in the team markets at BMR’s top-rated sportsbooks.

We discussed above, how Louis Oosthuizen has embraced the team ethic with his fellow Springboks. If that remains the same this week, trust them to win or be close in the team event once again.

Both Brendan Grace and Charl Schwartzel have experience of Bentgrass greens, in fact Schwartzel was the Masters champion on them in 2011.

The markets are slower to form this week with all the new arrivals but take the Stingers GC to win the team title at the LIV Invitational at Boston when you see BMR’s best sportsbooks offering that market.
