Jon Rahm and Ryan Palmer are back to defend their 2019 title in the PGA Tour's only official team event when the 2021 Zurich Classic of New Orleans tees off Thursday at TPC Louisiana. Rahm and Palmer are the 15-2 favorite in the latest 2021 Zurich Classic of New Orleans odds from William Hill Sportsbook.

Before you make any 2021 Zurich Classic of New Orleans 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 $1,600 for $100 players

The golf expert has picked three outright winners 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.    

Gehman took Hovland to win at 45-2 at The Concession in February, and the Norwegian posted his third straight top-five finish but couldn't quite keep up with winner Collin Morikawa. At the Genesis, Gehman made a profit of $100, but saw more than $1,000 slip away when Finau lipped out a 6-foot birdie putt that would have won it on the final hole  

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 Zurich Classic of New Orleans odds from William Hill Sportsbook and revealed his picks to win.

We can tell you Gehman is backing the team of Bubba Watson and Scottie Scheffler at 12-1. "These two have plenty of firepower to win this event," Gehman told SportsLine. Both played well at the Dell Match Play, where Watson finished in the top 10 and Scheffler was the runner-up. Watson's free-wheeling style and Scheffler's measured approach should be a good combination in New Orleans.  

Gehman has isolated three other teams to win, including a long-shot pairing that is listed at higher than 30-1! These players are friends off the course, and chemistry and comfort are critical components in a team format like this. They can certainly make some noise, and you ABSOLUTELY need to see who  Gehman is backing and check out his detailed bets and picks before you make your 2021 Zurich Classic  predictions!
