Puerto Rico Open 2021 odds: Four-time Euro Tour winner Thomas Pieters the favorite in opposite-field event

The PGA Tour’s 2020-’21 Super Season rolls on this week with two events, one a WGC in Florida and the other an opposite-field event in Puerto Rico. Both feature star-studded fields, and, naturally, both offer plenty of betting value.

In Puerto Rico, there are no single-digit, Dustin Johnson-like favorites, but there is a clear solo favorite – Belgium’s Thomas Pieters, who has opened at 14-1 to claim his first PGA Tour victory. The four-time European Tour winner and European Ryder Cup folk hero figured to be a staple at the WGCs when he first burst on to the scene, but a few lean seasons saw him fall out of the OWGR top 100.

He’s since fought back to 74th, and he’s looking to get back to the form that helped him rise to as high as 23rd in the world in 2017. He seems to be on the right path, having collected seven top-25 finishes in his last 13 worldwide starts.

Checking in just behind Pieters at 16-1 is Argentina’s Emiliano Grillo, who was in contention through 54 holes at the Mayakoba Golf Classic in December before fading on Sunday. England’s Matt Wallace, who has four European Tour victories, is also at 16-1. His fellow countryman Ian Poulter is at 18-1, along with South Africa’s Branden Grace. Byeong Hun An, who is still in search of his first PGA Tour win, is at 22-1.
