2021 Bermuda Championship Betting Preview/Prop Plays

26 October 2021

The next PGA event is showcased at the lovely island of Bermuda, with this being the third time around. A handful of golfers decided to pass on this event, so the field is a bit far and wide with who could win here.

There are a handful of favorites that could steal the show. On the other hand, it is the perfect opportunity to score a big payday if someone is able to steal the spotlight or win their first event.

Tournament Details

Date: Oct 28–31, 2021
Course: Port Royal Golf Course
Watch on: GOLF
Purse:$6,500,000

Betting Overview

Matthew Fitzpatrick, Patrick Reed, and Christiaan Bezuidenhout are the only players within the top 50. The first two, of course, are the higher ranked out of the three and carry the face of this tournament.

With this event being rather lacking in top 10 talent, you can still enjoy quality golf. This event is arguably wide open, but there are a few opportunities present for some that show up and make birdies.

Head to Head Matchup to Watch

Matthew Fitzpatrick (-41.945) and Patrick Reed (-35.856) will have the most attention heading into this event, simply because they are the best-ranked golfers. Fitzpatrick comes in at 26th, while Reed sits at 24th in the world rankings.

These two will offer one of the more competitive matches if you are looking for top-quality golfers that are trying to sneak a win without having a loaded field.

Golfers That Could Win

Seamus Power (-31.784) is your long shot pick here but does not need to be overlooked, as he has some serious golfing experience behind him. He has three top 10 finishes, a victory at Barbasol, and ranks fifth in the field for birdies gained.

Matthew Fitzpatrick (-41.945) is coming off of a victory at the European Tour and participated in the Ryder Cup with a respectable performance. After the Europeans got a beating, you might see him take over this event to bring some attention back to the team.

Potential Winning Pick

Mito Pereira (-33.994) has three victories in the Korn Ferry tour and has looked impressive since joining the PGA prime time. In addition, he has put up three top-six finishes in his last six events.

If he can overcome some issues with his short game, then he has an excellent shot against some of the pros. Not only that, but his ball-striking will keep him afloat to help make up the difference.

Prop Plays

Top 20 Finish: Christiaan Bezuidenhout (-145)

A five-time winner overseas, Bezuidenhout is still in search of his first PGA Tour title. The 27-year-old South African played sparingly on the Tour last year, but made the cut in all 12 events he entered.

His best finish was a tie for 7th at the Arnold Palmer and he played well at all four majors, including a tie for 30th at the PGA Championship and 31st at the U.S. Open.

Bezuidenhout finished 3rd at the Korn Ferry Tour Championship to secure his first season as a member of the Tour for the 2021-22 season, which means we should be seeing a lot more of him this year.

Rated No. 1 in this week’s Dunkel Index, we like Bezuidenhout to be in contention all weekend long and will take him (-145) to finish in the Top 20.

Top 20 Finish: Mito Pereira (-125)

The 26-year-old Chilean burst on the PGA scene last year after earning a special temporary status on the Tour following three wins on the Korn Ferry Tour.

He put together an impressive stretch in July and early August with a tie for 5th at the Barbasol Championship, a tie for 6th at the 3M Open and a tie for 4th at the Olympics.

He earned his first top-three finish earlier this year at the Fortinet Championship while co-leading the field Driving Accuracy Percentage (60.71).

Rated No. 4 in this week’s Dunkel Index, we like Pereira as a potential pick to win, but will also take the safter play (-125) to have him finish in the Top 20.

Top 20 Finish: Seamus Power (-110)

Like Pereira, driving accuracy is the strength of this 34-year-old from Ireland as he comes into this week ranked No. 17 on the Tour.

Last year proved to be a breakout season for Power as he finished in the Top 100 in money and earned his first Tour victory at the Barbasol Championship. He added three more Top 10 finishes at the AT&T Byron Nelson, Rocket Mortgage Classic and John Deere Classic.

He missed the cut in his first tournament this season, but rebounded nicely with a tie for 21st at the Shriners Children’s Open. Power also knows the Port Royal Golf Course well after playing in this tournament the last two years and finishing No. 37 and No. 31, respectively.

Rated No. 2 in this week’s Dunkel Index, we expect Power to improve on those past finishes and will take him (-110) to finish in the Top 20 this week.
