PGA betting gets a little interesting this week, as the Zurich Classic of New Orleans is a team event. Golfers pair up in 2-man groups, competing in what will be an 80-team tournament.
Team success involves chemistry, course familiarity, and a well rounded game. The teams play four ball on Thursday and Saturday, and alternating shot on Friday and Sunday.
This tournament has only been played in this format since 2017, and the 2020 even was lost to the pandemic so there’s been just three winners. Defending (2019) champs Jon Rahm and Ryan Palmer are the +750 favorites to repeat.
2021 Zurich Classic of New Orleans Free Golf Betting Odds: Cameron Smith / Marc Leishman +1000
It’s a mini Ryder Cup type tournament for Smith and Leishman, who are representing Australia this weekend. Country pride aside, these are two red hot golfers as Leishman finished 5th at Augusta and Smith 10th.
Smith also had a top 10 at RBC Heritage last week, and is a previous winner in this format with Jonas Blixt in 2017 at a whopping -27.
2021 Zurich Classic of New Orleans Free Golf Betting Odds: Collin Morikawa / Matthew Wolff Top 5 +280
Team format should play well for Collin Morikawa and Matthew Wolff, aka the Young Guns. The 24-year old Morikawa has finished in the top 20 in two straight tournaments, 18th at the Masters and 7th last week at RBC Heritage.
The 22-year-old Wolff is chomping at the bit after his infamous DQ at the Masters. He’s struggled this year, but finished 4th at the 2020 PGA Championship (won by Morikawa) and had the lead going into the final round at the 2020 U.S. Open. Wolff is 6th in driving distance, and Morkawa 2nd in tee to green.
2021 Zurich Classic of New Orleans Free Golf Betting Odds: Tony Finau / Cameron Champ Top 5 +330
The team format will be huge for Cameron Champ, as he can wallop drives off the tee and let Tony Finau do the cleanup. Champ has the longest drive on tour this season (424), and Finau is 5th in shots gained tee to green.
Champ was 26th at the Masters and Finau 10th, so both of them are playing well. They also each took the RBC Heritage off last week so should be fresh.
2021 Zurich Classic of New Orleans Free Golf Betting Odds: Billy Horschel / Sam Burns Top 10 +160
Horschel and Scott Piercy won this event in 2018, and were a stroke back of a top 10 in 2019. Piercy lost some sponsorships over Instagram posts over the past year, and really hasn’t been playing well anyways so Horschel will team up with Sam Burns.
The 24-year-old Burns should thrive off the experience and leadership of the 34-year-old Horschel, who has played well here.
