2021 Sentry Tournament of Champions odds: Surprising PGA picks, predictions from model that called six majors

News Post || News Now:

If Justin Thomas is able to finish on top of the leaderboard this week at the 2021 Sentry Tournament of Champions, he’ll become the first golfer since Geoff Ogilvy (2009-10) to win this event in back-to-back years. Thomas, the No. 3 ranked player in the world, will have to stave off a number of serious contenders if he wants to rewrite the history books. Dustin Johnson, a two-time winner of this event, Jon Rahm, Bryson DeChambeau and Patrick Reed are among the experienced players looking to dethrone Thomas and win the 2021 Sentry Tournament of Champions. 

Play gets underway from the Plantation Course at Kapalua on Thursday, Jan. 7. Johnson enters this week’s event as the Vegas favorite at 6-1 according to the latest 2021 Sentry Tournament of Champions odds from William Hill Sportsbook. Thomas is going off at 13-2, while Rahm (15-2), DeChambeau (10-1) and Xander Schauffele (10-1) are next in line on the odds board. Before locking in your 2021 Sentry Tournament of Champions picks or entering any PGA DFS tournaments on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel, be sure to see the latest golf predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

SportsLine’s prediction model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been on fire since the return of the PGA Tour in June. In fact, it’s up over $13,000 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.

In the final standard PGA event of 2020, McClure nailed Viktor Hovland’s win at +2500 in his best bets. That was one of many huge calls he made last year. After nailing Sergio Garcia (+5500) finishing on top of the leaderboard at the Sanderson Farms Championship, McClure finished up over $6,200 yet again on his best bets. The model had him in the top five from the start and McClure’s best bets included Garcia winning outright. Those who followed that advice saw a massive +5500 return.

He also finished profitable at the U.S. Open, nailing two of his best bets, including a +1100 top-five bet on Matthew Wolff. McClure hit a top-five bet (+1200) on Doc Redman at the Wyndham Championship, finishing up over $700 on his best bets. Those are just some of his recent big returns. 

In all, the advanced computer model has also nailed a whopping six majors entering the weekend. Anyone who has followed its golf picks has seen massive returns. 

Now that the 2021 Sentry Tournament of Champions field is locked, SportsLine simulated the event 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected leaderboard.

The model’s top 2021 Sentry Tournament of Champions predictions 

One huge shocker the model is calling for at the Sentry Tournament of Champions 2021: Bryson DeChambeau, one of the favorites at 10-1, barely cracks the top five. DeChambeau was one of the hottest players on tour late in the summer and early this season, capping that run by winning the 2020 U.S. Open in September. He finished a respectable T-8 at the Shriners Hospital for Children Open, but struggled at the 2020 Masters in November.

He finished T-34 at Augusta and fired two rounds of 73 or higher that took him out of contention. He’s continued to crush the ball off the tee this season, but he ranks 60th in strokes gained: putting, which could cost him in this event. He’s not a strong pick to win it all and there are far better values in the Sentry Tournament of Champions 2021 field.

Another surprise: Viktor Hovland, a 20-1 long shot, makes a deep run at the 2021 Sentry Tournament of Champions. It’s hard to find many holes in Hovland’s golf game right now. He enters the 2021 Sentry Tournament of Champions hitting 73.33 percent of greens in regulation this season, which ranks 22nd on the PGA Tour. His ability to consistently find the green in regulation has allowed Hovland to rack up 91 birdies in just 20 rounds this season. 

Hovland also ranks sixth in scoring average (69.181) and 11th in strokes gained: off-the-tee, which helped him claim his second career victory last month at the Mayakoba Golf Classic. Those impressive stats, plus his long odds, make him a strong play for your 2021 Sentry Tournament of Champions bets.

Also, the model is targeting three other golfers with odds of 18-1 or higher to make a strong run at the title. Anyone who backs these underdogs could hit it big. You can only see them here.
