With his data-driven approach to betting golf, Rick Gehman routinely crushes sportsbooks. Over the final 17 tournaments of the 2020 season, Gehman's bets cashed more than $1,900 for $100 players. And  just last week at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, his bets netted more than $400! 

Before last week's event, Gehman didn't hesitate to back Daniel Berger to win at 20-1, even though the 27-year-old was coming off a missed cut in Phoenix. "Berger's game is complete, with no real flaw to consider," he said, also noting he had made the top 10 in both previous appearances.

The result? Berger went out and fired a 65 on Sunday to lock up his fourth career tour victory. He went to the final hole tied with Maverick McNealy and put his approach 31 feet from the hole. Berger calmly drained the clutch eagle putt to win by two strokes!   

Gehman has been on a roll this season. He cashed top-10 bets on young stars Viktor Hovland and Will Zalatoris at Torrey Pines. The previous week at The American Express, his bets brought in nearly $600 when he hit on a top-five bet on Patrick Cantlay and top-10s on Abraham Ancer and Francesco Molinari. Anyone who followed Gehman's advice cashed in HUGE!   

His success builds on last season, when Gehman told SportsLine readers to take Webb Simpson to win at 30-1 at the 2020 RBC Heritage before Simpson went 22 under to cash it in. And at November's Mayakoba Golf Classic, Gehman tabbed Hovland (25-1) as a top contender before his second career Tour victory.  

Now Gehman, whose models have produced 12 outright winners in the past year, has analyzed the latest 2021 Genesis Invitational odds from William Hill Sportsbook and revealed his picks to win.

We can tell you Gehman feels confident backing Johnson, who is the 11-2 favorite at William Hill Sportsbook! The reigning FedEx Cup champion comes off a victory in Saudi Arabia and has an impeccable history at Riviera. He won the event in 2017, one of six times in his past seven appearances he has finished in the top 10, and Gehman doesn't expect any less than a victory this week!

Gehman has isolated three other players to win, including one golfer who is listed at a MASSIVE 100-1! This young international player faltered at Pebble Beach, but he has a history of up-and-down play and has the skill to make a run at Riviera. This golfer has a win and four top-25 finishes this season, and Gehman expects him to be back on the upswing this week! You ABSOLUTELY need to see who it is, along with Gehman's detailed bets and picks, before you bet the 2021 Genesis Invitational.
