Bryson DeChambeau and Three More Golfers’ 2021 PGA Major Odds

Bryson DeChambeau has been one of the most talked-about golfers over the last several months. Whether it’s because of his recent performances or his physique, it’s hard to escape the DeChambeau talk.

Now, bettors are wondering when he’ll win his next major championship.

A “major” is the name given to four specific PGA tournaments that are held annually: the Masters Tournament, U.S. Open, PGA Championship and Open Championship. Bryson DeChambeau won his first major when he won the 2020 U.S. Open. With the way he’s playing as of late, it’s not hard to imagine him winning another one in 2021.

Will Bryson DeChambeau Win Another Major in 2021?

Odds via BetOnline as of Friday, March 19

  • No -325
  • Yes +225

As mentioned earlier, Bryson DeChambeau is having quite the 2021 PGA Season. He started it off by winning the U.S. Open in September and recently won the Arnold Palmer Invitational a few weeks ago. In eight events this season, DeChambeau has finished in the top-10 five times, including three top-3 finishes.

The 27-year-old is playing the best golf of his career. He’s arguably the strongest golfer on the tour, leading all golfers in average driving distance at 320.8 yards. He’s also averaging an eagle once every 54 holes, which is by far the most on the tour. While odds are -325 that he won’t win another major this year, it’s clear that there aren’t many, if any, golfers who’ve been playing better than Bryson DeChambeau lately.

Will Dustin Johnson win a Major in 2021?

Odds via BetOnline as of Friday, March 19

  • No -225
  • Yes +185

At -225, Dustin Johnson has the best odds on BetOnline to win a major in 2021. Despite how well Bryson DeChambeau has been playing, Johnson is the favorite to win the 2021 Masters Tournament on sportsbooks like BetOnline and Bovada. Whenever his next major win occurs, it’ll be the third of his career. Johnson previously won the 2016 U.S. Open and 2020 Masters.

If he wins the green jacket two years in a row, Johnson would become the first to do that since Tiger Woods did back in 2001 and 2002. With the 2020 Masters happening back in November because of COVID-19, Johnson has a clear advantage to capture the first major of 2021.

Will Adam Scott win a Major in 2021?

Odds via BetOnline as of Friday, March 19

  • No -1650
  • Yes +850

Adam Scott has been having a disappointing start to his PGA season. Out of the nine events he’s competed in, he only has one top-10 finish. He’s also finished 32nd or worse seven times. His lack of success this season is just one reason why BetOnline is hesitant that he’ll win another major this year. Scott’s only major victory came when he won the 2013 Masters Tournament.

Since 2013, he’s finished inside of the top-10 in at least one major every year except for 2016 and 2020. Maybe age is finally catching up to the 40-year-old.

Will Rory McIlroy win a Major in 2021?

Odds via BetOnline as of Friday, March 19

  • No -400
  • Yes +300

Rory McIlroy joins Dustin Johnson (+800) and Bryson DeChambeau (+1200) as having great odds (+1200) on BetOnline to win the 2021 Masters Tournament. But will he win that or any other major in 2021?

BetOnline is leaning towards ‘No’ at -400. While McIlroy has yet to win a PGA tournament in 2021, he still has eight top-25 finishes in 10 events this season. He’s also a four-time major winning, having won them all between 2011 to 2014. Yes, it might be seven years since McIlroy last won a major, but experience matters in the chase of another.
