Sweet 16 matches, betting odds

The group stage concluded in Austin, Texas at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.

Unlike last season, many top seeds are heading to the Sweet 16 (Jon Rahm was the only seed to qualify last March).

Rahm, who ranks No. 1 in the Official World Golf Rankings, had no problem moving on from group play, slipping away in his first three games, 2-1-0. Defending champion Billy Horschel will have a chance to repeat in Austin as he moved up from Group 12 with a 2-0-1 record.

Saturday morning’s matches will include a Ryder Cup rematch, a chance for Scottie Scheffler to get revenge and a former world No. 1 against a 49-year-old Richard Bland.

The eight winners will advance to the quarter-finals on Saturday afternoon. Sunday will be the semi-finals as well as the final and the match for third place.
