Bet golf with William Hill, America’s #1 sportsbook.
The stage is nearly set at the Riviera Country Club, as the 2021 Genesis Invitational starts tomorrow.
Currently there are 120 golfers who will compete this week in Pacific Palisades, Calif., including eight of the top-10 ranked players in the world.
With such a strong field battling at Riviera, who are William Hill bettors wagering on to finish in first in this latest PGA Tour event?
Among the golfers near the top of the board, Patrick Cantlay has seen the most noticeable odds shift. Cantlay opened at 18/1 at William Hill, which were the seventh-lowest odds. Now he’s listed at 12/1, which is tied for third-lowest with Justin Thomas and Jon Rahm.
For total number of tickets, Jordan Spieth (33/1) and Brooks Koepka (22/1) lead the way, as each has racked up 5%. Cantlay, Thomas, Xander Schauffele (14/1) and Collin Morkawa (28/1) have all attracted 4% in that category. A few longer shots have drawn 3% of the total number of tickets, including Joaquin Niemann (40/1), Max Homa (45/1) and Matthew Wolff (65/1).
Cantlay ranks first in total dollars wagered with 16%, highlighted by one Nevada bettor placing $3,000 on Cantlay 14/1 for a total potential payout of $45,000. That is both the largest wager and total potential payout as of now at William Hill for the 2021 Genesis Invitational.
The event favorite, Dustin Johnson (+500), is next with 9% of the total dollars wagered. Johnson has reeled in a noteworthy bet of his own as well, as another Nevada bettor put down $1,000 on Johnson +550 for a total potential payout of $6,500.
Thomas and Bryson DeChambeau (5%) have captured 5% of the total dollars wagered apiece, with Morikawa right behind at 4%. Among those further down the board who have received noteworthy action in terms of total dollars wagered, Homa and Si Woo Kim (80/1) fit the bill.
