2022 Sentry Tournament of Champions best bets, betting trends

With the 2022 Sentry Tournament of Champions set to begin, it's time to wrap up your final betting card for the first PGA Tour event of the year.

BetMGM tells us that there's been some mild line movement this week on players at the top of the board: Jon Rahm (+800 up to +900), Xander Schauffele (+1400 down to +1200) and Patrick Cantley (+1100 up to +1200). They have the most tickets and highest handle on Patrick Reed (9.5 percent of tickets and 12.1 percent of handle), with Xander Schauffele second in each (7.3 percent of tickets and 10.8 percent of handle).

Here's a look at the biggest movers, up or down, from open to now:
