We were all over the leaderboard with my top three bets last week, but only one ended up cashing for us.

Jon Rahm was my pick to win, but he stumbled on the weekend and finished T4, three strokes back from the lead.

Cameron Young was my top 10 pick, but he fell a little bit short and finished at T23.

Luckily, KH Lee Top 20 at +210 cashes for as, as the South Korean finished in solo third to give us a small profit for the week.

This week, the PGA Tour heads off the main land for this week's Butterfield Bermuda Championship.

Weather is going to be a big factor this week, so tread lightly.

Here are the latest odds to win, as well as my top three picks for this week's Butterfield Bermuda Championship.

Odds to Win Butterfield Bermuda Championship

Butterfield Bermuda Championship Best Bets

Thomas Detry +2600

Thomas Detry has been a long-time member of the European Tour, but finally will be competing on the PGA Tour as a rookie this season. He has three starts under his belt this season, with a T9 finish at the Sanderson Farms Championship and a T12 finish at the Fortinet Championship.

We don't get any strokes gained or ShotLink data from the Bermuda Championship, so we're going into this event extremely blind. Detry has done enough this season to justify a bet on him in an extremely weak field.

Harry Hall Top 20 +330

If there are any golfers who are used to golfing in wind and rain, its those who grew up playing links golf in England. Harry Hall is one of the English golfers in the field, and he's coming off a T15 finish at the Shriners Children's Open at the start of the month.

Not only that, but Hall enters the tournament ranking fifth on Tour this season in strokes gained: putting. That could be enough for him to stay within striking distance of the top of the leaderboard in an ugly field. The rest of his numbers aren't good enough to warrant an outright bet, but his short game certainly makes his Top 20 odds at +330 a tempting option.

William McGirt Top 20 +600

William McGirt has only competed once in this young PGA Tour season, but his performance was good enough to make him sit at third in total strokes gained in this week's horrendous field. So, you can bet on the third best performing golfer in the field to finish in the Top 20 at +600? I'm in.

Sure, he's only competed once, but it was a T24 finish in a much stronger field at the Sanderson Farms Championship. He gained strokes in every aspect of his game, except for his play off the tee. That's largely due to him being a short hitter, but you can get away with that with accurate driving, and he hit 66.07% of his fairways at the Sanderson Farms.

I might be big-braining this bet, but I'll take a shot at +600 for a Top 20 finish in an event that's near impossible to handicap.
