The 2021-22 PGA Tour season continues this week with the 2021 Hero World Challenge, which will be played at Albany Golf Course in the Bahamas. There are no points on the line in this event, but with a $3.5 million prize purse and with this event benefitting the Tiger Woods Foundation, several of the world's top golfers will be playing.
Caesars Sportsbook lists Rory McIlroy as the 15-2 favorite, followed closely by Collin Morikawa (8-1) and Justin Thomas (10-1).
We simulated the 2021 Hero World Challenge 10,000 times, and there are some MAJOR surprises.
Our proprietary model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been RED-HOT since the PGA Tour resumed in June of 2020. In fact, it's up almost $10,000 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.
Earlier this month at the 2021 World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba, the model was all over Viktor Hovland (18-1) winning his third PGA Tour title. At the 2021 Open Championship, McClure's best bets included Collin Morikawa winning outright even though he was listed as a massive 40-1 long shot. He was also all over Daniel Berger (+220) and Emiliano Grillo (+700) finishing inside the top-20. McClure's best bets netted over $2,200 at the Open Championship.
In addition, McClure's model was all over Jon Rahm's (10-1) first career major championship victory at the 2021 U.S. Open. Rahm was two strokes off the lead heading into the weekend, but the model still projected him as the winner. And at the 2021 Masters, McClure nailed Rahm's (+250) top-five finish in his best bets, as well as Corey Conners' (+550) top-10 showing.
This same model has also nailed a whopping seven majors entering the weekend! Anyone who has followed it has seen MASSIVE returns!
One major surprise the model is calling for at the 2021 Hero World Challenge: McIlroy, the favorite, stumbles this week and doesn't even crack the top three! Another surprise: Sam Burns, a 16-1 long shot, makes a strong run at the title. He's a target for anyone looking for a HUGE payday.
Also, the model is targeting TWO other golfers with odds of 16-1 or longer who will make surprising runs! Anyone who backs these long shots could hit it BIG.
So who wins the 2021 Hero World Challenge? And which HUGE long shots make a serious run at the title? ... Join SportsLine right now to see who you can bank on to win the 2021 Hero World Challenge, and see which long shots make a run at the title, all from the model that nailed seven majors!
