WGC-Workday Championship Betting Preview 

Golf Previews

The PGA Tour's next event arrives with a WGC that has a massive purse on the line. You can expect all of the best names in golf to make this trip, too. 

Every member included in the Top 10 Official World Golf Rankings will partake in this event. This includes the likes of Dustin Johnson, Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas, and Bryson DeChambeau.

Tournament Details

Date: Feb 25–28, 2021
Course: Concession Golf Club, Bradenton, Fla.
Purse:$10,500,000

Betting Overview 

Typically, this tournament is held every year in Mexico. But with COVID-19 protocols and other travel issues in place, the Tour has opted not to attempt to show up at the Club de Golf Chapultepec. 

Instead, they have decided to play a string of events through the Sunshine State. Most golfers are not concerned with this move unless they were looking forward to that particular course. 

However, few golfers have put their time in at Concession. The only one with considerable history is Bryson DeChambeau, but that was back during his college days.

Golfers That Could Win 

Dustin Johnson is the current number one golfer in the world, so he will be in discussion heading into this event. He was recently in contention at Riviera but ultimately came up short with a T-8 result. Regardless of the field, he still leads the pack where 48 of the top 50 golfers in the world will compete.

Tony Finau returns after a sensational Genesis Invitational in which Max Homa defeated him in a two-hole playoff. He will be one of the most-watched golfers with arguably the best momentum coming into this event.  

Potential Winning Pick 

Bryson DeChambeau (-10.317)

Finding value in events like these is tough on many levels. This is especially difficult since you have almost every top-ranked golfer in the world competing against one another. 

However, Bryson DeChambeau fits perfectly into a gray area with good value and an excellent chance of winning. He has played and won on this course when he was in college, and this ultimately gives him a slight edge compared to many of the golfers that have not played here before. 

Last week he did not participate in weekend play for the first time in roughly eight events. His most recent performances have been respectable T-7 and T-18 showings in 2021. 

Looking forward, he arguably has the best chance at taking a victory in a loaded field. Look for him to perform well and put on a show with the other elite golfers.
