DraftKings Pick6 Predictions: Valero Texas Open Picks

Not a bad week when we finish 2-1 and one of those plays was the outright winner. We stay in Texas, moving from Houston to Oaks at San Antonio for the Valero. There are some value spots to be had this week with the finishing position market on DraftKings Pick6, especially at the top of the leaderboard. This is the week before the Masters yet we still see some popular and successful names across the top portion of the field. Here are the best three Pick6 plays for the Valero Texas Open!

Here’s the lowdown on DraftKings Pick6: It is meant to mirror most pick’em sites, allowing you to build a two- to six-leg entry with larger payouts for more correct choices. However, the new product is peer-to-peer, meaning the strategy lies in beating other players in pre-selected tournaments rather than beating the house, making it important to be contrarian!

DraftKings Pick6 Predictions and Valero Texas Open Picks

Hideki Matsuyama M/L 26.5 Finishing Position

Deki has been playing fantastic golf and is still north of 20-1 to win this week, in a field only boasting Rory McIlroy at the top and no Scottie Scheffler. While we’ve seen Matsuyama struggle earlier this season and his odds reflecting those issues, it’s nice to see him return to championship form. He’s absolutely in need of continuing this upward trajectory if he wants to perform well at Augusta.

He’s a solid fit for the Oaks course and the stress on accuracy over raw power. We just saw him lose strokes putting while finishing T6 at The PLAYERS. While not a sustainable strategy long term, it shows how incredibly accurate Matsuyama has been with iron and approach shots. That’s the type of accuracy that plays extremely well at Valero, as we saw a T15 finish here just last year. This is the week for Deki; a top 25 finish feels almost like a gift.

DraftKings Pick6 Prediction: Hideki Matsuyama LESS Than 26.5 Finishing Position

Matt Fitzpatrick M/L 30.5 Finishing Position

There were no issues putting for Matt Fitzpatrick at The PLAYERS en route to a T5 finish. The only thing holding back this Major champion is the wildly inconsistent play. On his best day, Fitzpatrick can strike the ball better than anyone and separate from the field on the greens. He gained nearly two strokes putting at Sawgrass, and should continue that this week on Bermuda grass.

It’s new territory this week at San Antonio but not many navigate a golf course like Fitzpatrick. With a focus on accuracy and aim, this week should prove favorable to Fitzpatrick so long as he maintains control around the greens. A sore spot even last week, his play ARG needs improvement for him to win this week.

The good news for us is we are taking one of the best ball strikers on tour to finish T30. This is the week we see two straight tournaments of dominant golf from Fitzy.

DraftKings Pick6 Prediction: Matt Fitzpatrick LESS than 30.5 Finishing Position

Lucas Glover M/L 54.5 Finishing Position

Our longer play failed us at Houston but Lucas Glover will fit… just fine this week. The “Glove” was airtight at the Valspar which followed up a MC at The PLAYERS. He’s struggled on the greens but still made cuts and finished better than this current total. We just saw him lose over a half stroke putting at the Arnold Palmer, only to finish T30. If he’s able to string together a few scoring putts, aided by his ability to consistently knock down approach shots, he’s got a shot at a T20 finish.

This field isn’t too daunting this far back nor is the course going to provide anything new or different for Glover. He’s finished better than 54 in each of his last four tries at the Valero, so clearly there’s a familiarity and comfort playing at San Antonio. Glover will push the field early and be in contention to cash a T20 play – well past anything in the T50 range.

DraftKings Pick6 Prediction: Lucas Glover LESS than 54.5 Finishing Position
