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.

At the Mayakoba Golf Classic Open in November, Gehman tabbed Viktor Hovland (25-1) as a top contender. "Hovland is a great ball-striker and has shown an improvement in his short game during this young 2021 season," Gehman said. "If he can put all the facets of his game together, he's going to contend in a lot of tournaments." The result: Hovland finished on top of the leaderboard and earned his second-career PGA Tour victory. Those who followed that advice saw a massive +2500 return!

The following week at the QBE Shootout, the data scientist picked the team of Matt Kuchar and Harris English at 7-1 to win, citing the team's comfort level and experience dealing with the format changes. The duo ran away with the event, shooting 37 under to win the event for the third time.      

At the 2020 RBC Heritage, Gehman told SportsLine readers to bet Webb Simpson to win at 30-1, and Simpson simply went out and fired a 22-under to cash that bet. And at the Tour Championship, Gehman cashed his 12-1 bet on Xander Schauffele winning (without strokes) in the FedEx Cup playoff finale.

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

We can tell you Gehman is extremely high on the Bryson DeChambeau this week! The U.S. Open champion is going off at 12-1 odds at William Hill Sportsbook. That makes him the fifth favorite despite his dominance after last season's restart. He has posted six top-10 finishes and two victories since then, and the wide fairways at Kapalua will allow the Tour's longest hitter to rip it. He could very well end up atop the leader board.

Gehman has isolated three other players to win, including a player who comes in at more than 30-1 and could make a huge leap forward this year. This young player racks up birdies in bunches, and the Plantation Course yields plenty, so he could be primed for victory this week. You ABSOLUTELY need to see who it is, along with Gehman's detailed bets and picks, before you bet the 2021 Sentry Tournament of Champions.
