A field of notable names and talented young golfers will compete across two courses when they tee off Thursday in a modified format for the 2021 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. The amateur portion of the event has been canceled because of the pandemic, and the players will play Spyglass Hill in addition to host Pebble Beach (Calif.) Golf Club.
Patrick Cantlay is the 15-2 favorite in the latest 2021 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am odds at William Hill Sportsbook. Other contenders in the 2021 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am field include Daniel Berger (14-1), Paul Casey (16-1), Will Zalatoris (18-1), Jason Day (20-1) and Jordan Spieth (22-1).
Before setting your Fantasy golf lineups or betting the 2021 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, you MUST see data scientist Rick Gehman's power rankings.
With his expansive database of golf statistics, course data and betting odds, Gehman creates advanced models and back-tests them constantly. These models have produced 12 outright winners in the past year -- including 30-1 Webb Simpson at the 2020 RBC Heritage.
At last month's Farmers Insurance Open, the leaderboard looked like a who's who of Gehman's rankings, with five of the golf expert's top nine picks finishing tied for seventh or better. He had winner Patrick Reed ranked No. 9 before his victory, while three others tied for the runner-up spot at 9 under par!
Before the event at Torrey Pines, Gehman called Reed "a competitor who can flip the switch at a moment's notice" and highlighted the volatile golfer's steady improvement in La Jolla, where he tied for sixth the previous year. Reed shrugged off a rules controversy on Saturday and went out and fired a final-round 68 to win by five strokes!
Gehman has been on fire all year, with two of the top four finishers at The American Express ranked in his top seven. And the previous week at the Sony Open at Waialae, the top three in his rankings all finished in the top seven! Anyone who has followed his advice has cashed in!
Now, Gehman has ranked his top 30 players for the 2021 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, and he isn't hesitating to back Cantlay. The California native has a victory and a runner-up finish in his past four events and tied for 17th at the Masters. Pebble Beach rewards great ball-strikers, and Cantlay certainly qualifies. With a ton of confidence and a top-heavy field at Pebble Beach, he could be in line for his fourth career tour victory!
On the other hand, Gehman is fading Jordan Spieth, who came out of nowhere last week to tie for fourth. But Gehman isn't convinced he's back, especially after his 1-over final round. Spieth hasn't won an event since 2017, and that string isn't likely to be broken this week. Spieth got a boost from oddsmakers, but he he barely cracks Gehman's top 10!
Instead, Gehman is backing a player who comes into the event at 50-1! This golfer is one of the better ball-strikers out there, and with the small greens at Pebble, that will come in very handy. His putter has been spotty, but if he gets that going, he could make some real noise! You ABSOLUTELY need to see who it is before betting this tournament or entering any Fantasy golf lineups.
