Biden to unveil 6 executive orders to curb gun violence, nominate a permanent ATF director Embattled NRA chief kept bankruptcy filing secret from deputies

Few things are as synonymous with spring as the Masters. With its towering tree-lined fairways, blooming azaleas and thundering roars that can be heard throughout the venue, Augusta National Golf Club is the mecca of sports.

However, the 2021 Masters will look differently than in years past, with only a limited number of patrons allowed on the grounds. Despite that, the 2021 Masters Tournament, which gets underway on Thursday, is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated events in recent memory.

In three of the last four Masters, the tournament has come down to either a single stroke or went into a playoff. The outlier from that time frame was Dustin Johnson's historic victory in 2020, which saw him record the lowest score in tournament history at 20-under. Johnson is going off as the 9-1 favorite to repeat according to the latest 2021 Masters odds from William Hill Sportsbook. The defending champion is the only golfer drawing single-digit PGA odds, but Jordan Spieth (10-1), Justin Thomas (10-1) and Bryson DeChambeau (11-1) are also among the top 2021 Masters contenders. Before locking in any 2021 Masters picks, be sure to see the 2021 Masters predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

SportsLine's prediction model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been on fire since the return of the PGA Tour in June. In fact, it's up almost $10,000 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.

Last month at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, McClure nailed Daniel Berger's win at +1400 in his best bets. McClure was also all over Viktor Hovland's (+2500) victory in the Mayakoba Golf Classic in December. That was one of many huge calls he's made in the past few months.

After nailing Sergio Garcia (+5500) finishing on top of the leaderboard at the Sanderson Farms Championship, McClure finished up over $6,200 yet again on his best bets in that tournament. The model had him in the top five from the start and McClure's best bets included Garcia winning outright. He also finished profitable at the U.S. Open, nailing two of his best bets, including a +1100 top-five bet on Matthew Wolff.

This same model has also nailed a whopping six majors entering the weekend, including Patrick Reed's win at Augusta in 2018. Anyone who has followed its golf picks has seen massive returns. 

Now that the 2021 Masters field is taking shape, SportsLine simulated the event 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected leaderboard.

The model's top 2021 Masters predictions 

One huge shocker the model is calling for at the Masters 2021: Bryson DeChambeau, the defending U.S. Open champion and one of the top favorites, barely cracks the top 10. DeChambeau has been one of the hottest players on tour this season, finishing on top of the leaderboard at the U.S. Open and Arnold Palmer Invitational.

The eight-time PGA Tour champion continues to crush the ball off the tee, averaging over 320 yards per drive this season, which ranks first on tour. DeChambeau's length off the tee also has him ranked in the top 10 in birdie average, scoring average and strokes gained tee-to-green.

However, DeChambeau is hitting fewer than 60 percent of fairways off the tee, which can cause plenty of trouble at Augusta National. That was evident in DeChambeau's last start at the Masters, when he finished 34th. DeChambeau, who's never finished better than 29th at Augusta National, is not a strong pick to win it all and there are far better values in the Masters 2021 field.

Another surprise: Xander Schauffele, a 22-1 long shot, makes a strong run at the title. He has a much better chance to win it all than his odds imply, so he's a target for anyone looking for a huge payday.

Schauffele will hope to win his first major championship this week at Augusta. The No. 6 player in the world, Schauffele has shown steady form this season, earning runner-up finishes in three separate events. He also secured a top-five finish at the U.S. Open in September.

Schauffele was in contention at the Masters in 2019, finishing second, one stroke behind eventual winner Tiger Woods. He's had plenty of success at majors in recent years as well, finishing in the top 10 in four of his last seven starts. Those impressive results, coupled with his long odds, make Schauffele a strong value pick in 2021 Masters bets this week, according to the model.

How to make 2021 Masters picks

The model is targeting four other golfers with odds higher than 20-1 to make a strong run at the title. Anyone who backs these underdogs could hit it big. You can only see them here.

So who will win the 2021 Masters Tournament? And which long shots stun the golfing world? Check out the odds below and then visit SportsLine to see the projected 2021 Masters leaderboard, all from the model that's nailed six golf majors and is up nearly $10,000 since the restart.
