Odds to Win the Valero Texas Open

The final tune-up for the Masters is this week, as the 2021 edition of the Valero Texas Open is at TPC San Antonio from April 1-4. 

Jordan Spieth is the +1000 favorite at Bovada, followed by Tony Finau (+1200), Scottie Scheffler (+1400), Abraham Ancer (+1800) and Hideki Matsuyama (+1800) to round out the top five on the oddsboard.

Dustin Johnson was initially installed as the fave, but DJ announced Monday that he has decided to withdraw from the Valero Texas Open in order to prepare for the Masters.

Here’s a look at the golfers with the likeliest odds to win the 2021 Valero Texas Open:

After a Year Off, Valero Open Returns to San Antonio

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Valero Texas Open was canceled in 2020. Besides Spieth, other past Masters champions in the field include Phil Mickelson, Zach Johnson and Danny Willett. Sponsor exemptions for the 2021 Valero Texas Open include Sam Bennett, Austin Eckroat, Mac Meissner and Akshay Bhatia.

Eckroat is looking to build off a strong T-12 showing at the Mayakoba Golf Classic, while Bhatia has made the cut in three of five starts this season, including a T-9 at the Safeway Open.

Can Conners Recapture His Lone Star State Magic?

Corey Conners pulled off the seemingly impossible at the 2019 Valero Texas Open, going from a late Monday qualifier the previous week to the champion. The Canadian became the first golfer to go from Monday qualifier to PGA Tour winner since 2010.

Conners emerged victorious by two strokes over Charley Hoffman on the final day, punching the final ticket to the Masters in the process. On Sunday, Conners birdied four of his first five holes but proceeded to give those shots back with bogeys from Nos. 6-9. 

The 29-year-old bounced back with three birdies in a row on Nos. 10-12 and added three more on the back nine to finish his round at 6 under, and 20 under for the week. Ryan Moore, Brian Stuard and Si Woo Kim rounded out the top five.

If you think Conners can go back to back at TPC San Antonio, he’s a major long shot at +15000 odds.

Valero Texas Open Pick

Andrew Putnam +6600

Putnam hasn’t played since missing the cut at the Players Championship two weeks ago, but don’t let that poor showing fool you. He’s presenting excellent value at the +6600 price for a variety of reasons. 

Prior to his missed cut at the Players, he had previously tied for fifth at the Puerto Rico Open and fourth at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Putnam has three top-10 finishes in eight events this year.

He’s played in each of the past two renewals of the Valero Texas Open and has a T-8 finish in 2018 and a T-36 in 2019 to show for it. Putnam was lights-out on the greens in those events and has been putting well this season, evidenced by a 0.59 strokes gained per round with the putter.

Props

Golf is unique for many reasons, but one of them is the significant number of betting props available at weekly tournaments. The Valero Texas Open is no different.

Sportsbooks are offering odds on things like whether there will be a hole-in-one, OVER/UNDERs on the winning score for the eventual champion and odds on which players from specific countries will have the lowest score, to name a few.

Like other sports, betting on props is a fun and unique way to enhance your golf gambling experience.

Live Betting

Live Betting is arguably one of the most exciting ways to bet on golf. If the player you placed a pre-tournament bet on is out of the running at any point during the Valero Texas Open, you can bet on another golfer as the days go by and have another stake in the game.

If there are only a few men in the hunt on the final day, the odds likely won’t be significantly high, but your chances of winning are. We’ve seen this happen multiple times in the PGA Tour’s Return to Golf, as multiple tournaments have gone to a playoff.
