2021 Charles Schwab Challenge odds: Surprising PGA Picks and Predictions

SportsLine’s advanced computer model simulated the Charles Schwab Challenge 2021 10,000 times

Phil Mickelson shocked the golf world last week when he became the oldest major champion in history, and the legendary left-hander now moves to try and take on famed Colonial Country Club beginning Thursday at the 2021 Charles Schwab Challenge. Mickelson turned back the clock with his PGA Championship victory at Kiawah Island, and now attempts to subdue a narrow, tree-lined Colonial layout that demands accuracy off the tee and around its many doglegs. Mickelson knows how to get it done at Colonial, though, winning the tournament in both 2000 and 2008 as part of his 45-victory Hall of Fame career.

Can Mickelson contend as a 50-1 long shot in the latest 2021 Charles Schwab Challenge odds at William Hill Sportsbook? Or is Texas native and 2016 Charles Schwab Challenge winner Jordan Spieth a more logical pick as the 10-1 favorite? What about Justin Thomas at 12-1 or Collin Morikawa at 14-1? Before locking in any 2021 Charles Schwab Challenge picks, be sure to see the 2021 Charles Schwab Challenge 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 well over $9,000 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.

At the Masters in April, McClure nailed Jon Rahm’s (+250) top-five finish, 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 nailed a whopping six majors entering the weekend. Anyone who has followed it has seen massive returns.

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

The model’s top 2021 Charles Schwab Challenge predictions

One major surprise the model is calling for at the Charles Schwab Challenge 2021: Spieth, a three-time major champion and the tournament favorite, struggles and barely cracks the top five. Spieth returned to his winning ways this year by winning the Valero Texas Open, which ended a 1,351-day drought without a victory. He then finished in third place the following week at the 2021 Masters and has seven top-10 finishes this season.

But Spieth is coming off a disappointing 30th place finish at the 2021 PGA Championship in which he broke par in just one round. He continues to struggle off the tee as he ranks 185th (out of 215 golfers) in driving accuracy percentage. That doesn’t forbode good results at the Colonial Country Club, which has numerous doglegs and tight fairways, putting a premium on accuracy. With Spieth’s current form, there are better options for your 2021 Charles Schwab Challenge bets.

Another surprise: Will Zalatoris, a 25-1 long shot, makes a strong run at the 2021 Charles Schwab Challenge title. The 30th-ranked player in the world, Zalatoris made a magical run at the 2021 Masters to finish second, and was in the mix throughout last week’s PGA Championship en route to an eighth-place performance.

Even though his earnings don’t count as official PGA Tour money due to his special temporary membership status, Zalatoris is making a case to be a captain’s pick for the 2021 Ryder Cup. Zalatoris has finished fifth at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, sixth at the 2020 U.S. Open and seventh at the Farmers Insurance Open to win over $3.4 million.

Zalatoris ranks second on the PGA Tour in strokes gained: approach the green, which will be a vital attribute this week on Colonial’s narrow fairways. Count on Zalatoris to make a major run beginning Thursday as part of your 2021 Charles Schwab Challenge bets.
