2021 John Deere Classic: PGA Tour Golf Picks, Odds, Predictions 7/8/21

2021 John Deere Classic
July 8, 2021 7:45 am EDT

This week, the PGA Tour travels to Illinois for the 2021 John Deere Classic.

Before I discuss my favorite golf bets for this week’s PGA Tour event let’s take a look at the golf course the field will play and some additional facts that I feel are relevant to those that will be placing bets on the 2021 John Deere Classic.

This week’s event will be played at TPC Deere Run. This golf course is a par 71 that measures 7,268 yards. This golf course will present this week’s field with wide generous tree lined fairways and bentgrass greens. Historically, PGA Tour golfers have had no problem with posting low scores at TPC Deere Run. I fully expect to see that trend continue this year. What does that mean to the golf bettor this week? It means that the golfers you bet on this week need to be able to score. More specifically, I would focus on golfers that are currently performing well in birdie or better percentage and bogey avoidance.

Key Facts

The 2020 John Deere Classic was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Five of the last ten winners of the John Deere Classic have been first time winners.

Paul Goydos holds the single round record for best score at TPC Deere Run. Goydos fired a first round 59 at the 2010 John Deere Classic.

The average cumulative four round winning score of the two previous winners of the John Deere Classic was 24 under par (2019 Dylan Frittelli -21: 2018 Michael Kim -27).

Now let’s shift our focus to my favorite golf bets for the 2021 John Deere Classic!

Here is a golfer for you to consider placing on your card to finish in the top five.

Seamus Power +850

The 34 year old arrives at this week’s John Deere Classic in great form. Power has accumulated four consecutive top 19 finishes on the PGA Tour, including an eighth place result at last week’s Rocket Mortgage Classic.

In relation to this week’s current listed 2021 John Deere Classic field, in the last 12 rounds played on the PGA Tour, Power ranks second in strokes gained tee to green, first in bogey avoidance, eighth in strokes gained approach, and eighth in GIR (greens in regulation).

It should also be noted that Power finished 16th at the 2018 John Deere Classic. in my opinion, Power is a much better golfer now than he was in 2018. I fully expect to see Power finish in the top five of the 2021 John Deere Classic.

Here are two golfers to consider placing on your card to finish in the top ten.

Hank Lebioda +500

The 27 year old American has two consecutive top five finishes on the PGA Tour, including a fourth place result at the Rocket Mortgage Classic. Clearly, Lebioda’s game is trending in a positive direction.

Beau Hossler +750

The 26 arrives at this week’s 2021 John Deere Classic on the heels of three consecutive top 25 finishes on the PGA Tour, including a tenth place result at the Travelers Championship two weeks ago.

In relation to this week’s current listed 2021 John Deere Classic field, in the last 12 rounds played on the PGA Tour, Hossler ranks first in strokes gained tee to green, second in GIR (greens in regulation), and third in strokes gained ball striking.
