There’s a $15,000,000 purse on the line as the PGA tour heads to THE PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass. This event marks a year since the COVID pause, as play was halted in the first round last year.
With the biggest purse of the season, 48 of the top 50 players in the world are descending on Ponte Vedra Beach (Brooks Koepka and Matthew Wolff are injured). That means some big names, but also no clear cut favorite.
World #1 Dustin Johnson is the favorite, but with not bad odds at +1200. #2 Jon Rahm comes into this one under the radar at +1400 while defending champ Rory McIlroy is +1600.
2021 THE PLAYERS Championship Free Golf Betting Odds: Dustin Johnson +1200
Any time you can get DJ at these odds you take it. He’s fresh after sitting out the Arnold Palmer Invitational and has had a week to work out of his disastrous 54th place finish at WGC-Workday.
Johnson has been horrible at THE PLAYERS with a 59th average finish and 2 missed cuts in 11 tries. Looking back to 2019 though he was working through some issues, finishing 5th with all four rounds 69 or better.
2021 THE PLAYERS Championship Free Golf Betting Odds: Xander Schauffele +2000
Xander Schauffele was a runner up at TPC Sawgrass in 2018 but played horrible here in 2019 with a 70 and 74 to miss the cut. Schauffele has a couple 2nd place finishes this year,
Schauffele is hitting 63.2% GIR over the last month, which is a decent 17th in the field. Overall he is 6th in the field over the season in top stat indicators for TPC Sawgrass, a place where he’s had success at.
2021 THE PLAYERS Championship Free Golf Betting Odds: Webb Simpson +2200
Another former winner, as Webb Simpson took home THE PLAYERS in 2018 with a -18. That was even with a +1 on the final round so Simpson was in control. Simpson was 16th here in 2019, finishing -10.
Simpson has a couple top 6 finishes in his last three starts. He also ranks 5th in the field in GIR over the last month and is 2nd on the season for top stat indicators at Sawgrass. He’s also paired with Rory McIlroy, the last person to win here.
2021 THE PLAYERS Championship Free Golf Betting Odds: Tommy Fleetwood +4000
Fleetwood was in the hunt last week at the Arnie, before struggling to a 77 on Sunday at a very windy Bay Hill. He’s made all three cuts at THE PLAYERS though, finishing in 5th here in 2019.
2021 THE PLAYERS Championship Championship Free Golf Betting Odds: Corey Conners +8000
Conners is a couple easy missed putts on Sunday away from being right in the hunt at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, where he finished 4th despite a final round 74. On the year Conners has better tee to green numbers than Rory McIlroy and Bryson Dechambeau.
2021 THE PLAYERS Championship Free Golf Betting Odds: Billy Horschel +8000
He laid an egg last week, missing the cut at Bay Hill a week after a 2nd place at the WGC-Workday. Those are still great odds for Horschel, who is from a couple hours down the coast in Valkaria, Florida.
Horschel also has a 77.4% driving accuracy over the last month, which leads this field. His 69.4% GIR over that span is 4th in the field.
