Butterfield Bermuda Championship 2021 odds: The Mito Pereira party might end here
Mito Pereira holds his card after winning the BMW Charity Pro-Am in June to earn the promotion to the PGA Tour.
Many gamblers betting on the PGA Tour this fall have fallen in love with placing bets on Mito Pereira, the young stud Chilean who won three times on the Korn Ferry Tour last season to earn special temporary status on the PGA Tour. He nearly cashed tickets for believers in the season opener in Napa. Now at the Butterfield Bermuda Championship, the 26-year-old has entered as the third favorite in a weak field, according to DraftKings Sportsbook. This will test the most avid Pereira bettors.
The 2021 Butterfield Bermuda Championship field boosts only two of the top 50 players in the world—Matt Fitzpatrick and Patrick Reed—in this lull on what has been a busy start to the 2021-’22 PGA Tour season. Pereira actually opened up as a bigger favorite than Reed at DraftKings, which is crazy considering Reed has won nine times on the PGA Tour, compared to Pereira making only nine starts on the PGA Tour since his “battlefield promotion.” Reed is a bigger favorite at the majority of sportsbooks, as he has struggled in the few starts he’s made in his return since his illness that forced him to withdraw from The Northern Trust.
The field in Bermuda boasts a number of Korn Ferry Tour graduates earning some respect from oddsmakers ahead of the action at Port Royal, including Hayden Buckley (25-1), Chad Ramey (28-1), Stephan Jaeger (45-1), etc.—in addition to some very veteran players, including 62-year-old Olin Browne.
