Justin Thomas carries a two-shot lead into the final round of the Workday Charity Open, which makes betting on Sunday's action a little more difficult for a few reasons.

Before diving in, here's a peek at the top of the betting board.

Player Odds To Par
Justin Thomas -159 -16
Viktor Hovland +350 -14
Collin Morikawa +650 -13
Kevin Streelman +3300 -11
Sam Burns +5000 -11

First, Thomas is playing flawless golf. The world No. 5 was the betting favorite heading into the week and he has yet to make a bogey through 54 holes. He leads the field in strokes gained: tee to green and is going to be very difficult to beat Sunday.

With that said, betting Thomas at -159 offers very little value. If you want to shell out that kind of money for a small return, feel free. But it's far from the recommended play.

Hovland (+350) is Thomas' closest competitor. Sitting two strokes back, the young Norwegian is one of few players who can go toe-to-toe with Thomas. If everything goes his way, he has a chance of catching the leader.

Morikawa is interesting from a value perspective. He's only three shots back, and at +650, he's a little more enticing than Hovland despite the one-shot difference. The 36-hole leader played horribly Saturday, but if he rebounds and strikes the ball as he did Thursday, a low round of 65 is a real possibility.

If the top of the betting board isn't of interest, here are a few golfers to target in final-round matchup bets as players who could post a low score Sunday.

Keegan Bradley: The 34-year-old ranks eighth this week in strokes gained: tee to green but can't get a putt to drop, which is pretty standard for him. However, if Bradley continues to strike the ball well and sees a few extra putts drop, a 6-under round isn't out of the question.

Russell Henley: Similar to Bradley, Henley can't buy a putt at the moment. He's fifth in strokes gained: tee to green and 58th in strokes gained: putting, which is odd considering Henley has always been a decent putter.

Hideki Matsuyama: The former winner at Muirfield Village is showing that his ball-striking is dialed in through three rounds, a good sign for Sunday and for next week's Memorial Tournament, which will also be played at Muirfield. Matsuyama's gone low at this course plenty of times in the past and could add another 65 at Muirfield on Sunday.
