2019 WGC-Mexico Championship expert picks, rankings, fantasy golf and betting tips

Looking for 2019 WGC-Mexico Championship picks, either for betting or fantasy golf games like DraftKings, FanDuel, Yahoo, Golf Channel or the PGA Tour?

We have your 2019 WGC-Mexico Championship rankings and expert picks, as we do each week of the PGA Tour season.

The PGA Tour bridges the gap between the West Coast Swing and the Florida Swing with the WGC-Mexico Championship. The 72-player, no-cut field at Club de Golf Chapultepec features 47 of the world top 50 (Rose, Day, Scott no-shows), and it's player on one of the more compelling, awkward host courses on tour.

There's also the opposite-field Puerto Rico Open, for which we offer top 10 rankings this week, too.

For those new to our weekly picks, we offer our top 10 players for free.

2019 WGC-Mexico Championship rankings: Top 10 picks

1. Justin Thomas -- Let the win get away from him in Los Angeles, but he's so solid overall and playing great this season. Lost in a playoff here last year.

2. Dustin Johnson -- DJ quietly put up a great Sunday round in tough conditions. Has won here, and he can hit wedge all day around the course.

3. Jon Rahm -- A T-3 here in 2017 was a good indicator, but you should love Rahm because he's a freaking top-10 machine right now.

4. Rory McIlroy -- Keeps putting up high finishes. He went into full DGAF mode on Sunday and nearly caught himself a win.

5. Xander Schauffele -- Quietly put up a T-10 finish at Riviera. He may not be the most consistent player in the top 10 in the world, but he's a great pick.

6. Bubba Watson -- Watson should conceivably love this course. Lots of shot shaping and imagination. Solid T-15 at Riviera.

7. Tiger Woods -- Woods petered our on a long Sunday at Riviera, but that's as much a function of being tired as anything. Must clean up the putting.

8. Brooks Koepka -- Easy to sleep on Brooks, but this should be a course he likes a lot. T-57 in Saudi Arbia uninspiring.

9. Paul Casey -- A solid few weeks for Casey, even if he's still disappointed he didn't win at Pebble Beach. Likes this course.

10. Phil Mickelson -- Mickelson has to be tired. He's played a lot of golf, much more than he said he wanted. But he's powering through and playing OK.
