2021 Masters odds, picks: Bryson DeChambeau, Justin Thomas predictions from model that nailed Reed’s win

Bryson DeChambeau has been one of the most unique players in recent PGA Tour history, completely remaking his physique in an effort to push the limits of distance in his game. DeChambeau enters the 2021 Masters having proven that bigger is often better, overpowering Winged Foot to win the U.S. Open last fall and bashing his way through the Arnold Palmer Invitational in February. DeChambeau’s attempt to long-drive his way around Augusta National Golf Club last November was unsuccessful, as he struggled to a 34th-place finish. Can he right the ship when the 2021 Masters gets underway on Thursday, April 8?

DeChambeau is 9-1 in the latest 2021 Masters odds from William Hill Sportsbook, but does he have the tools necessary to solve Augusta National and defeat a stellar 2021 Masters field? Will current world No. 1 and defending FedEx Cup champion Dustin Johnson repeat as the 8-1 Masters favorite? Before locking in your 2021 Masters picks or entering any PGA DFS tournaments on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel, be sure to see the 2021 Masters predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

SportsLine’s prediction model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been on fire since the return of the PGA Tour in June. In fact, it’s up over $10,000 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.

Last month at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, McClure nailed Daniel Berger’s win at +1400 in his best bets. McClure was also all over 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 few months.

After nailing Sergio Garcia (+5500) finishing on top of the leaderboard at the Sanderson Farms Championship, McClure finished up over $6,200 yet again on his best bets in that tournament. The model had him in the top five from the start and McClure’s best bets included Garcia winning outright. He also finished profitable at the U.S. Open, nailing two of his best bets, including a +1100 top-five bet on Matthew Wolff.

In all, the advanced computer model has also nailed a whopping six majors entering the weekend, including Patrick Reed’s Masters win in 2018. Anyone who has followed its golf picks has seen massive returns.

Now that the 2021 Masters field is taking shape, SportsLine simulated the event 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected leaderboard.

The model’s top 2021 Masters predictions

One huge shocker the model is calling for at the Masters 2021: Bryson DeChambeau, the defending U.S. Open champion and one of the top favorites, barely cracks the top 10. DeChambeau has certainly revolutionized the game of golf in recent months, using his bulked-up frame to dominate golf courses.

DeChambeau’s dominance off the tee can be seen in his advanced statistics, ranking first on the PGA Tour in driving distance, strokes gained: tee-to-green and strokes gained: off-the-tee. In addition to his length off the tee, DeChambeau has also been a sensational putter this season, ranking in the top 50 in strokes gained: putting, overall putting average and one-putt percentage.

However, Augusta National is not a golf course DeChambeau can overpower with lightning fast greens and a thick first cut ready to punish every mishit. That was evident in DeChambeau’s last start at the Masters when he finished 34th. DeChambeau, who’s never finished better than 29th at Augusta National, is not a strong pick to win it all and there are far better values in the Masters 2021 field.

Another one of the model’s 2021 Masters predictions: Justin Thomas, whose lone major win was four years ago, makes a strong run at the green jacket.

Already with 14 PGA Tour titles to his credit, the 27-year-old Thomas has been one of the most prolific talents in a decade. His victory at TPC Sawgrass capped a start to the new PGA Tour season that saw him finish in the top 20 in nine of his 10 starts, already earning over $5.3 million this season.

Thomas has consistently improved every year he has made the journey to Augusta National, going from 39th in 2016 all the way to fourth behind champion Dustin Johnson last November. Thomas hasn’t failed to break par at the Masters since his first-round 73 back in 2019, a streak of seven straight rounds. With the Players Championship title just the most recent of Thomas’ successes, the second-ranked player in the world is in prime position to succeed as part of your 2021 Masters bets, according to the model.

How to make 2021 Masters picks

The model is also targeting five golfers with odds of 20-1 or higher to make a strong run at the title. Anyone who backs these underdogs could hit it big. You can only see them here.
