The 2021 Players Championship tees off Thursday from TPC Sawgrass. World No. 1 Dustin Johnson is the 11-1 favorite at William Hill Sportsbook, followed by Rory McIlroy (14-1) and Bryson DeChambeau (14-1).
We simulated this tournament 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. In fact, it's up over $11,000 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.
Last month at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, McClure nailed Daniel Berger's win at +1400 in his best bets. McClure was also all over Viktor Hovland's (+2500) victory in the Mayakoba Golf Classic in December. That was one of many huge calls he's made in the past few months.
After nailing Sergio Garcia (+5500) finishing on top of the leaderboard at the Sanderson Farms Championship, McClure finished up over $6,200 yet again on his best bets in that tournament. The model had him in the top five from the start and McClure's best bets included Garcia winning outright.
He also finished profitable at the U.S. Open, nailing two of his best bets, including a +1100 top-five bet on Matthew Wolff. This same model has also nailed a whopping six majors entering the weekend! Anyone who has followed it has seen MASSIVE returns!
One major surprise the model is calling for at the Players Championship 2021: Bryson DeChambeau, one of the top Vegas favorites and last week's winner at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, stumbles and doesn't even crack the top 10! Another surprise: Webb Simpson, a 22-1 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 FOUR OTHER golfers with odds of 22-1 or higher, including a MONSTER long shot north of 30-1! Anyone who backs these long shots could hit it BIG.
So who wins the Players Championship 201? And which HUGE long shot is a MUST-BACK? ... Join SportsLine right now to see who you can bank on to win the 2021 Players Championship, and see which long shots make a run at the title, all from the model that is up over $11,000 on PGA picks since the restart!
