While you were watching March Madness, the PGA Tour has been hosting its Valspar Championship at the Copperhead Course in Palm Harbour, Florida.

Davis Riley enters the final round with a two-stroke lead at 18-under par. Can anyone catch him?

Here are my three picks to make a Sunday charge to win the Valspar Championship. All odds listed are via WynnBET Sportsbook.

3 Live Bets to Win the Valspar Championship

  • Justin Thomas +210
  • Sam Burns +350
  • Adam Hadwin +2000

Justin Thomas +210

The obvious choice to make the comeback, and second on the odds behind Riley, is Justin Thomas. He's been gaining +2.25 strokes gained approach this tournament, which is promising heading into the final round. He's by far the most talented golfer in contention on Sunday, and no one else has the experience winning like Thomas does.

If he can dial in his driver (+0.73 strokes gained off-the-tee), he's going to close the gap in a hurry. He enters the final round three strokes back from Riley.

Sam Burns +350

Another golfer who is sitting three strokes back from the lead is Sam Burns. His stats through the first three rounds are very similar to Thomas. He's been fantastic with his approach game, but has struggled at times with his driver.

If you want to bet on a guy who knows how to win, but presents a little bit better value from a betting standpoint, target Burns at +350.

Adam Hadwin +2000

Today's winner is going to come from one of the top five golfers. If you want a long shot bet, your only realistic choice is Adam Hadwin, who will enter the final round with a five stroke gap between him and Riley. It's not probable, but it's certainly possible if the Canadian can play at his best today.

Hadwin's tee to green numbers are amongst the best in the field this weekend, but his putter has let him down at times, gaining just +0.69 strokes on the greens. If he can dial in his putter today, watch out.
