If you followed last week's dark horse picks for the Farmers Insurance Open, you cashed in on Luke List at 66/1.
Unfortunately for myself, I didn't follow my own advice. I recommended List as a solid dark horse wager, but decided to stay away. That decision will haunt for me a little while, but I'm glad that there are a few of you who cashed on the suggestion.
If you want my full preview and top three outright picks for this week's AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, check out my article here.
But for now, let's dive into a few long shot bets that I love for this week's event.

Dark Horse Bets to Win AT&T Farmers Insurance Open
Sahith Theegala +9000
It's not a matter of if Sahihth Theegala will become a mainstay on the PGA Tour, it's a matter of when. I've already sprinkled on him a couple of times this season, but I'm going to take a few extra shot on him on the West Coast, considering he's a California kid.
In his last three starts, he's gone T48, T33, and T25 which means he's trending in the right direction. If he can keep himself from having the one bad round that has stifled him in recent weeks, he'll be in contention on Sunday.
Nick Taylor +9000
Based on Nick Taylor's history at this event alone, he's worth a sprinkle to win this week at +9000 (bet $100 to profit $9,000).
He has two top 10 finishes here, including winning the event just two years ago in 2020. We see time and time again that golfers tend to play well at the same course year after year. What makes Taylor any different?
He had a respectable T30 finish at last week's Farmers Insurance Open.
Brandon Harkins +12500
FanSided's golf writer, Cody Williams, agreed on Luke List as our dark horse bet last week, so shoutout to his favorite long shot wager this week, Brandon Harkins. This is what he said about Harkins in his tournament preview article:
"We’re going deep for our longshot pick to win this week but it’s hard not to love this number on Brandon Harkins given how things shape up for him. Not only did Harkins win last week on the Korn Ferry Tour, but he finished T-15 playing this event back in 2017 and shot a 28 on the back-nine at Pebble Beach last year in the non-tour Taylormade Pebble Beach Invitational. At these odds, how can you not at least sprinkle a little bit on Harkins?"
