There’s many reasons to be excited about The Match 9, the latest in the Capital One’s The Match series, which will air at 6:30 p.m. eastern on Monday on TNT. First, the participants—for the first time in the five-plus year history of The Match, we have female golfers. Lexi Thompson and Rose Zhang will tee it up alongside Rory McIlroy and Max Homa in a skins format, which is also a departure from the usual two-person best-ball format.

Finally, it’s the golf course, which deserves star billing along with the A-list talent. The Park West Palm, transformed by Gil Hanse and his design partner Jim Wagner last year, is a municipal course that reshapes the definition of a muny. It’s an affordable public course with intrigue on every hole—fun and undulating green complexes, decent land movement for a Florida course and firm and fast turfgrass.

We’re also excited because DraftKings Sportsbook has dropped a ton of prop betting markets for the Monday night match. Based on Golf Digest’s “Every Hole At” video, we think we have a few clues as to what to expect from the action tonight. Find our best bets for The Match 9 below:

All Players to hit the fairway with tee shot on Hole 1: Yes (+200)

We often see nerves get the best of Match participants, but this is one of the only times we’ve seen all tour pros playing. I don’t know that the nerves will quite affect these players quite as much. The fairway the opening par 5 looks pretty wide open, so I’m willing to bet we get four balls in the fairway at the opener.

All 4 Players to hit green with Tee Shot on Third Hole: Yes (+140)

I think there’s an edge here. The third hole is only 140 yards from the back tees (all four participants will play the back tees), so this club will be a wedge or short iron for all. Plus, the green is massive for a short par 3. Hanse and Wagner designed a double plateau green here with a hint of a Biarritz, so there is ample room to hit a poor-ish shot and get away with it. I understand there will be nerves and adrenaline—and if the pin is on the back and someone gets too aggressive, this could get away from you. But I’m willing to bet on four of the best golfers in the world to hit a massive green with a short club.

All 4 players to hit green with tee shot on Hole 5: No (-250)

The fifth hole is a bomb. It can play as far back as 227 yards, though it’s unclear if the tournament organizers will be using the back tees here (I would guess not). I think it’s worth laying the juice here regardless.

Closest to the Pin at Hole 5: Max Homa (+230)

On the longest par 3, I think it’s reasonable to expect one of the PGA Tour players to step up and win this market with their distance advantage. I’ll take the slighter better price here with Homa.

Most Skins Won: Rory McIlroy (+200)

The betting splits are worth studying for this one. It’s an interesting to note that at BetMGM, for example, Max Homa is getting 55 percent of the betting tickets, but only 14 percent of the handle (aka the money bet). Rory, on the otherhand, is getting 73 percent of all money wagered, despite just getting 27 percent of the ticket count. That means larger bets are being made on Rory, which is usually a sign of sharp action.

Finally, it’s worth noting that Rory lives less than 30 minutes from The Park West Palm. Not only will he be nice and rested headed up there, but it’s safe to assume he’s played the course before—being that Tiger Woods was there for the ribbon-cutting and he’s also tight with Seth Waugh, CEO of the PGA of America, who was very involved in the development of the course’s reinvigoration.
