Early Betting Favourites for 2021 Charles Schwab Challenge
- Jordan Spieth (+900)
Jordan Spieth enters the 2021 Charles Schwab Challenge top favorite to walk away with the spoils and repeat his success from 2016. He has had a solid run leading up to the PGA Championship, winning the Valero Texas Open, finishing T5 at Masters, and T9 at the AT&T Byron Nelson.
Unfortunately, Spieth failed to deliver at the Ocean Course, ending in T30 with +2. Regardless, the Charles Schwab Challenge is an entirely different tournament with a lot shorter course, which suits Spieth and his playstyle.
- Justin Thomas (+1100)
Justin Thomas is the only golfer out of the top favorites that have never won the Charles Schwab Challenge or finished inside the top two. Thomas also did not make the cut at the PGA Championship, which could work in his favor as he had a weekend off to rest – unlike most competitors in the field.
Whether Thomas is worth a bet at the offered odds is another question, and we believe that there are better picks to choose from. Although an excellent player, his stats are not nearly as appealing as that of Spieth (relative to the offered odds), making the latter a far more appealing pick at the current price.
- Collin Morikawa (+1400)
Collin Morikawa finished T8 at the PGA Championship and now returns to the Colonial Country Club as the 2020 runner-up. Prior to his solid showing at the Ocean Course, Morikawa also managed T7 at RBC Heritage and T18 at Masters, indicating good form.
What’s more, the shorter Colonial Country Club course should be better for Morikawa. He has proven he knows his way around the course last year – despite missing the short put that ended up costing him the win – and you can’t really doubt his ability to lock in another top finish.
- Daniel Berger (+1600)
Daniel Berger is the defending champion of the Charles Schwab Challenge, so it’s hard to look past him as one of the favorites to do it again. That’s mainly because Berger tends to do better on shorter courses and underperforms longer, such as the PGA Championship’ Ocean Course.
Berger finished the PGA Championship in T75, which is obviously not good, but looking back, he has finished T3 on TPC Craig Ranch, T13 at the RBC Heritage, and T9 at The Players. A good choice at a great price.
- Abraham Ancer (+1800)
If you’re looking for early value picks, look no further than Abraham Ancer. He is in exceptional form and has been playing exceptionally well of late.
Ancer finished T8 at the PGA Championship, second at Wells Fargo Championship, fifth at the Valspar Championship, and T18 at RBC Heritage.
What makes Ancer stand out from the rest of the field is that he is a very accurate player, and that’s exactly what is required to win at the Colonial Country Club. What’s more, the Charles Schwab Challenge course is not nearly as punishing as the Ocean Course, allowing golfers to play a bit more aggressively – a style in which Ancer can shine.
