This Thursday morning, the PGA Tour’s 2021 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am will begin.
Before I discuss my favorite longshot golf bets for this week, let’s take a look at the betting odds of past champions of this event to see if we can find any historical trends.
Here is a list of the last six winners of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and that golfer’s opening odds the week they won the event:
2020 Nick Taylor +16000
2019 Phil Mickelson +2500
2018 Ted Potter Jr. +50000
2017 Jordan Spieth +900
2016 Vaughn Taylor +30000
2015 Brandt Snedeker +2500
What can we take away from the data just presented regarding the previous six winners of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am? Well, when I see the names Phil Mickelson, Brandt Snedeker, and Jordan Spieth amongst a list of winners a few specific skill sets comes to mind. All three golfers I just mentioned are known to be outstanding putters. Additionally, Snedeker, Spieth, and Mickelson all have exceptional short games. Having stated that, I will be looking for golfers for my potential wagers that are performing well in the two skills just mentioned.
As far as historical odds go, the data illustrated above tells me that any golfer can potentially win this event. For goodness sake, in 2018, Ted Potter Jr. won this event at +50000 odds on the heels of five consecutive missed cuts on the PGA Tour.
Now let's shift our focus to my betting recommendations for the 2021 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
Here is a golfer to consider placing on your card to win this week's PGA Tour event.
Kevin Streelman +3500 - The 42 year old American has quite an impressive list of previous quality finishes at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Let me be more specific. Streelman has played the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am every year since 2015. In those five events just mentioned, Streelman has five consecutive top 17 finishes, including a second place finish at last year's event.
In relation to this week’s current listed 2021 AT&T Pebble Pro-Am field, in the last eight rounds played on the PGA Tour, Streelman ranks first in GIR (greens in regulation), 13th in strokes gained ball striking, and tenth in strokes gained approach.
Here is a golfer to consider placing on your card to finish in the top five.
Andrew Putnam +2000 - Putnam has two consecutive top 21 finishes on the PGA Tour, including a seventh place result at the Waste Management Phoenix Open last week.
In relation to this week’s current listed 2021 AT&T Pebble Pro-Am field, in the last eight rounds played on the PGA Tour, Putnam ranks first in strokes gained around the green, third in bogey avoidance, and 13th in GIR (greens in regulation).
