The Players Betting Odds 2021

The 2021 Players Championship starts Thursday at TPC Sawgrass, Ponte Vedra Beach in Florida. This is where some of the top golfers from the world will be vying for one of the most prestigious titles in the sport.

The coronavirus pandemic caused the cancellation of last year’s tournament. COVID-19 is still a concern. Former Masters winner Danny Willett has withdrawn from the tournament after contracting it. The players are now back at Sawgrass in hopes of crowning a new champion, for the first time since 2019.

The top names in the sport will participate, but Brooks Koepka, a four-time major champion, withdrew due to a knee injury. Who will be victorious?

The top 2021 Players Championship predictions

The Players Championship 2021 will be a huge surprise to the model. Bryson de Chambeau, one the most popular Vegas players, fails and doesn’t even make the top 10. DeChambeau certainly has had some great moments in 2020-21 PGA Tour season. He won the U.S. Open to start the season and took first place at the Arnold Palmer Invitational last weekend.

There have been some frustrating moments between these wins. He missed the Genesis Invitational cut in February, and finished outside of the top 20 at both the WGC-Workday Championships and the 2020 Masters. Although he’s been a great player off the tees, he has had trouble on the greens. He entered this tournament ranked 65th in strokes gained: putting on the PGA Tour. This model shows that the Players Championship 2021 offers far better value.

Surprise! Webb Simpson, a 22-1 longshot, runs strong for the title. Webb Simpson has a better chance of winning it all than his odds suggest, making him a tempting target for those looking to make a big payday.

Simpson is hoping to win his second Players Championship title after lifting the trophy in 2018. Simpson is currently ranked 10th in the world. He has been playing well lately, with 19 of his 20 rounds being par or better. His four top-10 finishes in the last nine events is a testament to his driving accuracy of 71.63 (fourth best on PGA Tour). This should be a great asset on a narrow course with hazards.

Simpson looked poised to compete at last year’s event. His first round score was tied for seventh, before the remainder of the tournament was cancelled. He has the skills to succeed on this difficult course, with a win and three top-16 finishes at TPC Sawgrass. Simpson is a solid value pick for 2021 Players Championship bets.
