2021 World Wide Technology Championship odds: PGA picks, Mayakoba predictions from model that called 7 majors

Viktor Hovland will look to defend his title when the 2021 World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba tees off on Thursday from El Camaleón Golf Course in Mexico. Hovland secured his second PGA Tour triumph with a 20-under par performance in 2020. He’ll have some stiff competition in the 2021 World Wide Technology Championship field, with the likes of Justin Thomas, Brooks Koepka, Tony Finau and Sergio Garcia set to tee it up this week.

Hovland, who’s coming off a top-20 finish at the CJ Cup in his last start, is going off at 18-1 to repeat according to the latest 2021 World Wide Technology Championship odds from Caesars Sportsbook. Thomas is the 14-1 favorite on the PGA odds board, with Hovland (18-1), Abraham Ancer (22-1) and Finau (25-1) close behind. Before locking in your 2021 World Wide Technology 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 $10,000 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 World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba field is locked, SportsLine simulated the event 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected 2021 World Wild Technology Championship leaderboard.

The model’s top 2021 World Wide Technology Championship predictions 

One major surprise the model is calling for at the 2021 World Wide Technology Championship: Justin Thomas, a 14-time PGA Tour champion and the odds-on favorite, stumbles this week and doesn’t even crack the top three. Thomas had a disappointing finish compared to his lofty standards in his only start of the 2021-22 season, finishing T-18 at the CJ Cup. A final round 64 propelled Thomas to a top-20 finish in that event. 

The 28-year-old is often among the best putters on the PGA Tour, but he’s been extremely inconsistent with the flat stick early this season. In fact, Thomas enters the 2021 World Wide Technology Championship ranked 207th in total putting (316.3) and 197th in strokes gained: putting (-.743). Thomas also ranks 62nd in greens in regulation percentage (72.22) and 91st in scoring average (71.068). He’s not a strong pick to win it all and there are far better values in the World Wide Technology Championship 2021 field.

Another surprise: Matthew Wolff, a 40-1 long shot, makes a strong run at the title. Wolff 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. Wolff enters this week’s event full of confidence after securing a runner-up finish at the Shriners Children’s Open in his last start. The 22-year-old has now finished T-17 or better in three of his last five events on the PGA Tour.

Wolff has been able to secure those positive results thanks in large part to his sensational short game. Wolff does rank first on the PGA Tour in driving distance (336.0), but it’s the putter that’s been red-hot this season. In fact, Wolff ranks sixth in total putting (82.7) 18th in strokes gained: putting (1.001) and 26th in putting average (1.661). A good putting stroke also has Wolff ranked ninth in birdie average (5.50) and second in scoring average (69.144). 

How to make 2021 World Wide Technology Championship picks

The model is also targeting five other golfers with odds longer than 30-1 who will make surprising runs, including two epic long shots going off higher than 45-1. Anyone who backs these long shots could hit it big. You can only see them here.
