WGC-Match Play 2021 picks: "I wouldn't bet against Patrick Reed"


Sam Greenwood

Which players might have an advantage to advance from their groups? And what stats will be key to winning the 2021 WGC-Match Play? Our “Be Right” experts, plus Golf Digest’s Shane Ryan—who joined us from on-site at Austin Country Club—offer their analysis and best bets for this week.

Ryan, who has covered this event for Golf Digest, offered some interesting insights into why he likes Patrick Reed. Though Reed has never advanced past the fourth round in the WGC-Match Play format, his match-play prowess at the Ryder Cup is a reason to look at him this week.

Listen to this week's episode (below) for our breakdowns of each group—and our favorite bets for each. 

Before you finalize your bets this week, here's a look at how the public is betting the 2021-WGC Match Play, courtesy of our friends at William Hill:
