Zozo Championship Odds 2021, Field: Surprising PGA Picks, Predictions from a Model Who Nailed Seven Majors

by | Oct 21, 2021 | PGA

After last year’s tournament was moved to California due to travel restrictions, the 2021 Zozo Championship is returning to Japan, starting Thursday. This will be the second trip to Japan in a few months for many golfers as the host course, Narashino Country Club, is less than 50 miles from where golf was held at the Tokyo Olympics. So gold medalist Xander Schauffele couldn’t wait to get on a plane and return to Japan, and he’s one of the co-favorites for the 2021 Zozo Championship.

Schauffele and Collin Morikawa are listed at 13-2 in the latest 2021 Zozo Championship odds by Caesars Sportsbook. You’re the only golfers with single-digit odds, but the 2021 Zozo Championship field offers plenty of depth. Other favorites include Will Zalatoris (18-1), Tommy Fleetwood (25-1) and Japan’s own Hideki Matsuyama (16-1). Before setting your 2021 Zozo Championship picks, be sure to check out the golf predictions and projected leaderboard of the proven computer model at SportsLine.

SportsLine’s proprietary model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been brand new since the PGA Tour resumed last June. In fact, it’s up nearly $ 10,000 since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.

At the 2021 Open Championship, McClure’s best bet was that Collin Morikawa would win outright, despite being listed as a massive 40-1 long throw. He was also all about Daniel Berger (+220) and Emiliano Grillo (+700) and ended up in the top 20. McClure’s best bets came in at over $ 2,200 in the 2021 Open Championship.

In addition, McClure’s model was Jon Rahms (10: 1) first major championship win of his career at the US Open 2021. Rahm was two shots off the lead before the weekend, but the model projected him the winner nonetheless. And at the Masters 2021, McClure Rahms (+250) took top 5 placement in his best bets and Corey Conners (+550) top 10 placement.

The same model also nailed a whopping seven majors over the weekend. Everyone who has followed it has seen massive returns.

Now that the 2021 Zozo Championship field is closed, SportsLine simulated the event 10,000 times and the results were surprising. Head over to SportsLine now to see the prospective Zozo Championship 2021 leaderboard.

The model’s top predictions of the 2021 Zozo Championship

A big surprise that the model calls for at the Zozo Championship 2021: Will Zalatoris (18-1), a player with three top 10 major placements in his young career, barely cracks the top 5. There are far better values ​​in the field of the Zozo Championship 2021.

Zalatoris has had relatively strong numbers in his three events this season, but he struggled his last time at the Shriners Children’s Open and missed the cut after shooting a 72 in a low-scoring event in the second round. He has performed well off the tee and reached the greens at a high level, but his putting has failed him this season. He ranks way outside the top 100 for strokes won: Putting, which could keep him out of the competition this week.

Another surprise: Joaquin Niemann, a 28: 1 long shot, makes a strong run for the title. Niemann didn’t win anything on the tour last season as he got three runner-ups in his top five. He almost never had a bad tournament and made it into 26 out of 27 events.

Despite having a light frame, Niemann is one of the strongest riders on the tour. He finished 13th in driving distance last season, but more importantly for this week, he finished 14th in strokes won: from the tee. Narashino Country Club has many narrow, tree-lined fairways so combining length and accuracy from the tee will be crucial this week.

The Chilean’s driving strength, coupled with his strong iron game, gives him a great chance to land at the top of the rankings. He had the 13th-lowest average score on the PGA Tour last year, so he can compete with anyone. Niemann has a much better chance of winning anything than his odds suggest, so he’s a destination for anyone looking for a huge payday.
