After Jon Rahm was successful in winning this past weekend’s U.S. Open, the golfing world is turning its attention to the next stop on the PGA Tour: the 2021 Travelers Championship. The tournament will once again take place at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut, this time from Thursday, June 24 to Sunday, June 27. Last year’s event was won by Dustin Johnson, who defeated Kevin Streelman by a single stroke to seal the victory.
BetOnline has released its odds for the 2021 Travelers Championship and is currently favoring Bryson DeChambeau to win it all at +1200 odds. The 27-year-old has competed at the event multiple times in the past, having finished in the top-10 in each of his last three appearances. Considering DeChambeau knows TPC River Highlands well enough, picking him to win isn’t that outlandish. However, he hasn’t been playing as well lately as he was at the start of the season.
DeChambeau kicked off the 2020-21 PGA Tour by winning last year’s U.S. Open. He even won the 2021 Arnold Palmer Invitational back in March. Unfortunately, he hasn’t found that much success since then. DeChambeau has finished outside of the top-25 in five of his last seven events and could use a solid showing to get back on track. Look for him to try and continue his success at TPC River Highlands this week for the 2021 Travelers Championship.

Johnson, Cantlay Right on DeChambeau’s Heels
At +1200 odds, both Dustin Johnson and Patrick Cantlay share the second-best shot at winning the 2021 Travelers Championship. As mentioned earlier, Johnson is no stranger when it comes to the tournament. After all, he is the returning champion. What makes last year’s victory even more interesting is that it was his first time competing at the Travelers Championship since 2014, when he finished in 31st. Now, all eyes will be on Johnson to see if he can do it again. He has three top-25 finishes in his last five outings, so look for him to seek his first victory since winning the 2020 Masters Tournament in November.
Even though he hasn’t won the Travelers Championship, Cantlay has placed top-15 in each of his last three outings at the tournament. He also set a TPC River Highlands amateur course record back in 2011, shooting a 10-under 60 in a single round. While that was a long time ago, it shows that Cantlay has the experience to compete with the other favorites at the 2021 Travelers Championship. He’s also one of a few golfers to win multiple tournaments this year, including last month’s Memorial Tournament.
Watson Looking to Join History Books
At +4000, Bubba Watson doesn’t have the greatest odds to win the 2021 Travelers Championship. However, that doesn’t mean he can’t. After all, he’s on the cusp of history. He’s already won the Travelers Championship three times in his career, with the most recent victory coming in 2018. Only Billy Casper has won the tournament four teams, which means Watson would join some pretty exclusive company should he be victorious this week.
Unfortunately, Watson hasn’t played well at TPC River Highlands as of late. Since his last Travelers Championship win, he’s finished in 54th in 2019 and failed to make the cut in 2020. He also has just two top-10 finishes out of his last 13 appearances, so Watson hasn’t been playing the best golf as of late. Only time will tell if his experience helps him in Connecticut this week.
