2021 WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational odds, picks: Proven golf model locks in projected leaderboard, surprising PGA projections


The 2021 WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational tees off Thursday, August 5, from TPC Southwind in Memphis, Tenn. Brooks Koepka is the 12-1 favorite in the latest 2021 WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational odds from Caesars Sportsbook, followed by Collin Morikawa (14-1), Xander Schauffele (14-1), Jordan Spieth (16-1) and Justin Thomas (16-1). 

We simulated the 2021 WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational10,000 times, and there are some MAJOR surprises.

Our proprietary model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been RED-HOT since the PGA Tour resumed last June. In fact, it’s up almost $10,500 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.

At the 2021 Open Championship, McClure’s best bets included Collin Morikawa winning outright even though he was listed as a massive 40-1 long shot. He was also all over Daniel Berger (+220) and Emiliano Grillo (+700) finishing inside the top-20. McClure’s best bets netted over $2,200 at the Open Championship.

In addition, McClure’s model was all over Jon Rahm’s (10-1) first career major championship victory at the 2021 U.S. Open. Rahm was two strokes off the lead heading into the weekend, but the model still projected him as the winner. And at the 2021 Masters, McClure nailed Rahm’s (+250) top-five finish in his best bets, as well as Corey Conners’ (+550) top-10 showing. 

This same model has also nailed a whopping seven majors entering the weekend! Anyone who has followed it has seen MASSIVE returns!

One major surprise the model is calling for at the 2021 WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational: Thomas, the defending champion and one of the top favorites, struggles and barely cracks the top 10! Another surprise: Louis Oosthuizen, a 22-1 long shot, makes a strong run at the title. He’s a target for anyone looking for a HUGE payday.

Also, the model is targeting THREE other golfers with odds of 20-1 or longer who will make a surprising run! Anyone who backs these long shots could hit it BIG.
