2021 Wyndham Championship odds: Surprising PGA picks, golf predictions from model that’s called seven majors

Opened in 1926, Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C. is one of the South’s finest clubs, and since 2008, the Donald Ross design has been showcased annually at the PGA Tour’s Wyndham Championship. The 2021 Wyndham Championship begins on Thursday and it’s the last chance for PGA Tour players to rack up points before the FedEx Cup Playoffs begin. Louis Oosthuizen is the highest-ranked player in the 2021 FedEx Cup standings in the field this week, and he’ll be looking to pick up points to ensure he remains in the top 10 after entering the week in eighth.

Oosthuizen is listed at 18-1 in the 2021 Wyndham Championship odds from Caesars Sportsbook, but two players are listed with shorter odds. Webb Simpson is a former winner at Sedgefield and he’s the 12-1 favorite, while 2021 Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama is listed at 14-1 in this week’s PGA odds. Before locking in your 2021 Wyndham Championship picks, be sure to see the golf predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

SportsLine’s proprietary model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been red-hot since the PGA Tour resumed last June. In fact, it’s up almost $10,500 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.

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 2021 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.

Now that the 2021 Wyndham Championship field is locked, SportsLine simulated the event 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected 2021 Wyndham Championship leaderboard.

The model’s top 2021 Wyndham Championship predictions 

One major surprise the model is calling for at the 2021 Wyndham Championship: Matsuyama, the defending Masters champion and one of the top favorites at 14-1, barely cracks the top five. Matsuyama has had a sensational season thus far, winning his first major championship at Augusta National and securing a runner-up finish last week at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational. 

However, Matsuyama has struggled at the Wyndham Championship throughout his career. In fact, Matsuyama has missed the cut at this event in three of his last five starts. In addition, Matsuyama has been ice-cold with his putter, entering this week’s event ranked 112th in one-putt percentage (39.52), 172nd in total putting (308.2) and 180th in strokes gained: putting. He’s not a strong pick to win it all and there are far better values for 2021 Wyndham Championship bets. 

Another surprise: Will Zalatoris, a 28-1 long shot, makes a strong run at the title. Zalatoris has a much better chance to win it all than his odds imply, so he’s a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. The Wake Forest product was ranked 1002nd in the Official World Golf Ranking just over two years ago but a dominant season in the Korn Ferry Tour, that was unfortunately interrupted by the pandemic, saw him shoot into the top 125.

And while Zalatoris was unable to collect his PGA Tour card, he was given sponsor’s exemptions late in 2020 and he utilized those opportunities to the fullest by making 21 of 24 cuts on the PGA Tour. During that span, he’s had seven top-10 finishes, including a runner-up at the 2021 Masters and a T-8th last week at the WGC FedEx St. Jude Invitational. Zalatoris ranks seventh on the PGA Tour in strokes gained on approach (0.790) and that ball striking should make him a serious threat at Sedgefield this week.

How to make 2021 Wyndham Championship picks

The model is targeting five other golfers with 2021 Wyndham Championship odds of 28-1 or higher to make a strong run at the title, including a massive long shot higher than 70-1 that would net any bettor an epic payday. Anyone who backs these underdogs could hit it big. You can only see them here.
