The PGA Tour spends its second straight week in Las Vegas, and a top-tier field will tee off Thursday at the 2021 CJ Cup at Summit Club. The field of 78 golfers includes top names like Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka and Jordan Spieth, and the Tom Fazio-designed course is expected to offer picturesque views and low scores.

Johnson is the 12-1 favorite in the latest 2021 CJ Cup golf odds at Caesars Sportsbook. Olympic gold medalist Xander Schauffele and two-time CJ Cup winner Justin Thomas aren't far behind at 14-1, followed by Collin Morikawa (16-1) and Rory McIlroy (20-1). Spieth is listed at 22-1, while Koepka is among a group of players at 25-1.

Before you lock in any of your Fantasy golf rankings or bet the 2021 CJ Cup, you MUST see what fantasy expert Riley Gates has to say.

Gates is a writer for 247Sports and has covered a range of sports for nearly five years. He has followed golf closely for much longer and has a profound knowledge of the sport. He also knows what it takes to win, on the course and in fantasy sports.    

Now, Gates has ranked the top 20 golfers for the 2021 CJ Cup. We can tell you he is looking for big things from Spieth this week in Las Vegas. The one-time phenom had a resurgence last season, and Gates is looking for that to continue into this new campaign. The 27-year-old had a win and four other finishes in the top three, including a runner-up finish at the British Open. Gates is looking for Spieth to break out of the gate strong this season, and it starts for him this week!           

On the other hand, Gates is fading Schauffele, who won the gold medal, but hasn't had any other big-time success. The 27-year-old has the stats to be among the world's best players and threatens to win occasionally. But he hasn't won an event since January 2019, and while he is strong in his stats across the board, he isn't dominant in any. He could take some time to get rolling this year, and Gates doesn't even rank him in his top five options for your Fantasy golf picks!

Instead, the fantasy expert is recommending a MASSIVE long-shot who comes in at well over 70-1! This  veteran is consistently near the top of the leader board and is off to a strong start to the season. Jason Kokrak was an unlikely CJ Cup winner last year, and it could happen again. This golfer is excellent on and around the green and could pull off a SHOCKER, and he needs to be a key piece to your Fantasy golf picks! You ABSOLUTELY need to see who it is and check out Gates' top picks before you bet the 2021 CJ Cup or enter any Fantasy golf picks.
