Betting Picks for the 2021 Mitsubishi Electric Classic
After a thrilling week at Greystone, the PGA Tour Champions rolls on in the South. The action shifts from Birmingham to Atlanta, where TPC Sugarloaf has hosted the 2021 Mitsubishi Electric Classic since its inauguration in 2013.
Here’s a quick peek at who’s won here in the past.

|Year||Winner||Final Score in Relation to Par||Margin of Victory|
|2014||Miguel Angel Jimenez||-14||2|
*Tournament postponed in 2020
Also worth noting: Retief Goosen triumphed at TPC Sugarloaf in 2002 (BellSouth Classic) and Scott McCarron won at this venue twice (1997, 2001) when it was featured in the annual PGA Tour rotation.
Enough background, let’s get to some Mitsubishi Electric Classic picks in 2021.
Best Bets for the 2021 Mitsubishi Electric Classic
Let’s kick off these Champions Tour picks with a couple of wagers from the prop markets. Starting with a captivating top-10 bet.
John Daly to Finish Inside the Top 10 (+500)
The “Wild Thing” is trending. John Daly followed his T2 at the Insperity Invitational with a T10 at the Regions Tradition. For the first time in his career, John has logged back-to-back top-10 finishes on the PGA Tour Champions. And he might just be getting started.
Since Daly switched into Tour Edge’s Exotics C721 players-distance iron, he’s landed inside the top-20 in GIR in both of his appearances. He’s chipping and putting the ball beautifully and still hitting it a long way (2nd on the Champions Tour in driving distance).
Stocked up on ingredients to cook up a successful recipe, +500 seems like a rather juicy number for Daly to crack the top 10. I’ll be taking a bite.
Jeff Maggert (-115) to beat Brandt Jobe
Moving along with another one of my top Mitsubishi Electric Classic picks, here’s a head-to-head matchup at BetOnline that you should consider locking in. Brandt Jobe is a fine player – he’s just not playing very well as of late.
Case in point – Jobe hasn’t broken 70 in 13 straight tournament rounds.
Going back to February, this duo has played in the same four tournaments. Here’s a look at what has transpired.

Maggert beat Jobe by 12 shots this past week. In terms of momentum gained or lost over the weekend in Birmingham, Jeff shot -6 and vaulted up the board. Brandt shot +3 and headed in the other direction.
2021 Mitsubishi Electric Classic Pick to Win
That loud sound you hear is from Robert Karlsson continually knocking on the door. Although he hasn’t entered the winner’s circle since joining the 50-and-over circuit, the 51-year-old Swede has been playing lights-out. Among his 9 top-10s in 17 starts, Karlsson has registered five top-4s. He’s shot par or better in 23 straight rounds.

2nd in par-3 scoring and 2nd in par-5 scoring, I could go on and on raving about how solid Robert has been. I’ll instead finish by saying he’s 9th in GIR and 1st in one-putt %.
Pencil Karlsson in for the win and expect a sweat come Sunday; know you could do a heck of a lot worse when making Mitsubishi Electric Classic predictions.
