AT&T Pebble Beach 2021 odds: Patrick Cantlay becomes the favorite after Dustin Johnson's WD

Dustin Johnson opted on a week off after taking the title at the Saudi International last week with a late WD on Monday evening. The World No. 1 was scheduled to make the across-the-world journey to Pebble Beach to play in this week’s AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am (which isn’t a pro-am this year, with the amateur portion canceled due to COVID-19) where he had been pegged as the favorite that reached historic levels.

When odds opened Monday with DJ still in the field, he was listed as a 4-1 favorite (even lower at some books), and to put that in perspective, we asked Golf Digest contributor Rick Gehman, who tracks historical odds at his website, to see how long it’s been since we’ve had such a heavy favorite. According to his records, over the past three or four years, DJ's odds were the biggest outright betting favorite in any full-field event. The next lowest odds: Jordan Spieth (4 ½-1 at the 2018 Sony Open) and DJ (4 ½ at the 2018 Genesis Invitational). We won't find out how DJ would've backed up those expectations.

Speaking of Spieth, his game showed strong glimmers of his past self over the weekend at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, as he entered the final round tied for the lead before finishing in a tie for fourth. Oddsmakers have confidence in Spieth’s game (or they’re adjusting to the fact he’ll be a popular bet this week given Spieth’s history at Pebble), assigning him 22-1 odds of winning. Context is key: Last week, you could’ve bet Spieth at 150-1 odds, so that huge shift is extremely noteworthy. Spieth won the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am in 2017.

With the DJ news, Patrick Cantlay moved from 10-1 to 7-1 and is now the heavy favorite after his runner-up finish at The American Express. Daniel Berger, on a run of nine top-10 finishes since 2019 is 14-1; Paul Casey, who won the Dubai Desert Classic a few weeks ago and finished runner-up at Pebble in 2019, sits at 16-1; and Will Zalatoris, the 24-year-old who earned special temporary status with his stellar play this season is 18-1.
