John Deere Classic 2021 odds: Will Zach Johnson make a run at another title?


Ezra Shaw

Before the final major of this incredible PGA Tour Super Season, the attention of the golf world turns to Silvies, Ill., for the John Deere Classic at TPC Deere Run. Though the field is a tad on the weak side—with just five of the top 50 players in the world teeing it up—we missed the John Deere Classic last year due to COVID-19. So the sights of TPC Deere Run—and the usual scenes of broadcasters or celebrities riding in tractors off the course—will be a welcome site to golf fans.

Daniel Berger, the lone top-20 player in the field, opened as the favorite at William Hill (9-1), followed by Brian Harman, the champion here in 2014, at 14-1. Harman arrives at the John Deere on the back of three straight top-20 finishes—two of those three being in the top 10. Sungjae Im, following his fourth top-10 finish of the season last week, is at 16-1. Sungjae should have a great chance for a second PGA Tour win—after surpassing $10 million in earnings in an already impressive start to his career.

Though he's not one of the top favorites, Zach Johnson will get a lot of the buzz from handicappers this week. The Iowa native earned one of his 12 PGA Tour titles here—but he also has three runners-up at the Deere. ZJ has 40-1 odds of winning this week, a nice number for someone with that course history. 

Here are all the odds (updated in real-time, thanks to our friends at Metabet) for the 2021 John Deere Classic.
