The Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort is ready to strike again when the PGA Tour's 2021 Valspar Championship tees off Thursday in Palm Harbor, Fla. World No. 2 Justin Thomas is the 9-1 favorite in the latest 2021 Valspar Championship odds from William Hill Sportsbook, followed closely by top-ranked Dustin Johnson at 11-1.

Before you make any 2021 Valspar Championship picks or bet this tournament, you MUST see what SportsLine analyst Rick Gehman has to say, given his uncanny track record of success.

With his data-driven approach to betting golf, Gehman routinely crushes sportsbooks. Since the calendar turned to 2020, Gehman's bets have cashed more than $1,700 for $100 players

The golf expert has picked 12 outright winners in the past 18 months and three this season, including Viktor Hovland at 25-1 at the Mayakoba Golf Classic and Daniel Berger at 20-1 at Pebble Beach! He JUST missed on nailing the winner in consecutive February events, with Hovland and Tony Finau finishing as runners-up on bets that would have cashed more than $1,900 on their own.    

At last week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans, he tabbed the team of Keegan Bradley and Brendan Steele to finish in the top 10, and they tied for fourth to cash that bet at +350! 

"Steele has found his putter in the last three starts, and if he can marry that with the excellent tee-to-green game from Bradley (seventh on tour), this is a team that can make a lot of noise," Gehman said before the event.

Gehman has been on a roll this season! At Pebble Beach, Gehman made a profit of $400 thanks to backing Berger. He cashed top-10 bets on Hovland and Will Zalatoris at Torrey Pines. At The American Express, his bets brought in nearly $600 when he hit a top-five wager on Patrick Cantlay and top-10s on Abraham Ancer and Francesco Molinari. Anyone who followed Gehman's advice cashed in HUGE!

Now Gehman, whose models have produced three outright winners this season, has analyzed the latest 2021 Valspar Championship odds from William Hill Sportsbook and revealed his picks to win.

We can tell you Gehman is looking for Johnson (-103) to win the matchup play against Thomas (-125) in a battle of the world's top players. "It's rare to see Johnson as an underdog to anyone, but that's what we have this week," Gehman said. "Johnson's putter is starting to turn around, and he gained over five strokes on the greens at the RBC Heritage. If he can continue that, we can beat anyone."

Gehman also has isolated four players to win, including a MONSTER long-shot who comes in at higher than 100-1! This player has been honing his approach shots, and if he can keep in the fairway on this tight layout, he could pull off a SHOCKER! You ABSOLUTELY need to see who  Gehman is backing and check out his detailed bets and picks before you make your 2021 Valspar Championship predictions!
