The PGA Tour heads to the Northeast for the 2024 Travelers Championship, which begins on Thursday at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, CT. After a highly competitive U.S. Open that went to the final hole and had four golfers within two strokes of one another, the Travelers Championship 2024 looks to carry the momentum into the final signature event of the 2024 PGA Tour season. Keegan Bradley won last year's Travelers Championship and is a 55-1 longshot to repeat this year. 

The 38-year-old is riding a roller coaster of results at TPC River Highlands in recent years, finishing T-2 in 2019, followed by missing the cut in the next two Travelers Championship tournaments. Is there value in Bradley as a substantial longshot in 2024 Travelers Championship bets, or should you target a favorite like Scottie Scheffler (4-1) or Xander Schauffele (15-2)? Before locking in any 2024 Travelers Championship picks, be sure to see the golf predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

Our proprietary model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been red-hot since the PGA Tour resumed in June 2020. In fact, the model is up nearly $9,500 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.

This same model has also nailed a whopping 13 majors entering the weekend, including the 2024 Masters -- its third Masters in a row -- and this year's PGA Championship and U.S. Open. Anyone who has followed it has seen massive returns. 

Now with the Travelers Championship 2024 field locked in, SportsLine simulated the tournament 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected leaderboard.

Top 2024 Travelers Championship predictions 

One major surprise the model is calling for at the 2024 Travelers Championship: Schauffele, the 2022 champion of this event and one of the top favorites, stumbles and barely cracks the top five. Schauffele won his first major at the PGA Championship in May and he's had success at TPC River Highlands in his career. He also enters this week's event full of confidence having finished T-8 or better in each of his last four starts on the PGA Tour.

However, Schauffele has recorded just one win in his last 42 starts on tour and he enters the Travelers Championship ranked outside the top 30 in both driving accuracy (67.17%) and one-putt percentage (42.37%). He also ranks 168th in approaches from 50-125 yards (22'9) this season, which doesn't bode well for Schauffele's chances to finish on top of the leaderboard this week. See who else to fade here.

Another surprise: Hideki Matsuyama, a 28-1 longshot, makes a strong run at the title. He has a much better chance to win it all than his odds imply, so he's a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. Matsuyama has been extremely consistent in recent weeks, finishing T-12 or better in six of his last eight starts on the PGA Tour. That impressive stretch includes a victory at the Genesis Invitational, as well as a sixth-place showing at last week's U.S. Open. 

Matsuyama has been able to secure those positive results thanks to his impressive ball-striking ability. The former Masters champion enters this week's event ranked fourth in strokes gained: total (1.405) and 15th in strokes gained: approach to green (0.503). He's also been extremely effective when in trouble, ranking third on the PGA Tour in scrambling (69.13%). Those impressive stats, plus his long odds, make him a strong value pick for your 2024 Travelers Championship bets. See who else to back here
