The Travelers Championship returns to its usual spot on the PGA Tour schedule in 2021 as the follow-up event to the U.S. Open. A strong field is bound for TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut. Below, we look at the 2021 Travelers Championship odds and make our PGA Tour picks and predictions to win.
The PGA Tour schedule makers didn’t do the field of the 2021 Travelers Championship any favors with back-to-back events on different coasts. Golfers who took part in the U.S. Open in San Diego are making the cross-country flight to Connecticut, which is where the Travelers Championship 2021 will take place. The tournament tees off Thursday and you can expect low scores from the TPC River Highlands course. Every winner since 1994 has broken 10-under par, including defending champion Dustin Johnson, who shot 19 under last year.
Johnson will look to rebound after finishing tied for 19th place at the U.S. Open and he enters this event as a 12-1 co-favorite with Bryson DeChambeau, according to the the latest 2021 Travelers Championship odds from William Hill Sportsbook. Other 2021 Travelers Championship favorites include Brooks Koepka (14-1), Paul Casey (16-1) and Patrick Cantlay (16-1). Before locking in any 2021 Travelers Championship picks, be sure to see the 2021 Travelers Championship predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven computer model at SportsLine.
Our proprietary model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been red-hot since the PGA Tour resumed last June. In fact, it’s up over $9,000 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.
At the 2021 U.S. Open, McClure’s model was all over Jon Rahm’s first career major championship victory at 10-1 from the start. Rahm was two strokes off the lead heading into the weekend, but the model also projected him as the winner at that point. 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. McClure’s best bets netted over $450 at the Masters.
In addition, McClure was all over Daniel Berger’s win at +1400 in his best bets at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am in February. McClure also nailed Viktor Hovland’s (+2500) victory in the Mayakoba Golf Classic in December. That was one of many huge calls he’s made in the past several months.
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 Travelers Championship field is taking shape, SportsLine simulated the event 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected 2021 Travelers Championship leaderboard and Travelers Championship 2021 expert picks.
