Betting Preview for the 2021 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am With Odds, Predictions, and Best Bets

| February 8, 2021 10:56 am PDT

The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am has a new look in 2021. We won’t see Bill Murray pulling any shenanigans, and players don’t have to worry about scouting Monterey Peninsula Country Club. The amateur portion has been eliminated from this year’s event, and MPCC  has been removed from the rotation.

It’ll just be 156 world-class golfers duking it out at two of the most acclaimed venues in all of golf.

Let’s start diving into some AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am predictions.

2021 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am Odds

If you fancy Dustin Johnson’s chances this week, I did you a favor by displaying his price at MyBookie. Most of the other top golf betting sites installed DJ’s odds to win the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am between +350 and +375.

The world’s #1 ranked player is coming off a victory at the Saudi International and continues to create a massive layer of separation between him and “everybody else.” Dustin has three wins and three seconds among his last nine starts and will be extremely comfortable teeing it up on 17 Mile Drive.

Case in point – Johnson has two wins and two runners-up at this golf tournament.

If there’s any case to be made for fading Dustin, aside from his unsalable price tag, it’s the fact that he finished outside of the top-30 here in 2019 and 2020.

Recent Winners at Pebble

No playoffs here since 2008 (Steve Lowery over Vijay Singh). In fact, the champ at Pebble Beach has won by at least three shots in four consecutive years.

AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am Winners Since 2009
Year Winner Winning Score Margin of Victory
2020 Nick Taylor -19 4
2019 Phil Mickelson -19 3
2018 Ted Potter Jr. -17 3
2017 Jordan Spieth -19 4
2016 Vaughn Taylor -17 1
2015 Brandt Snedeker -22 3
2014 Jimmy Walker -11 1
2013 Brandt Snedeker -19 2
2012 Phil Mickelson -17 2
2011 D.A. Points -15 2
2010 Dustin Johnson -16 1
2009 Dustin Johnson -15 4

Phil has won here five times (tied with Mark O’Meara for the most of all-time), but don’t expect any magic from Lefty this time around. Mickelson hasn’t won on the PGA Tour since he hoisted the hardware here in 2019, and here’s what he’s been up to lately.

Across Phil’s last 10 starts worldwide, a T44 at the 2020 Safeway Open is the only time he’s cracked the top-50.

Despite his affinity for the cliffs in Monterey, I have no interest in targeting Mickelson as one of my AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am picks.

AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am Pick to Win

Talk about a golfer who’s charging up the world ranks, Will Zalatoris was ranked 2,004th in the world exactly two years ago. He was ranked outside of the top 500 at this time last year, but then something clicked.

Ever since Will ditched conventional putting and went to an arm-lock method, he’s racked up more top-10s in OWGR-sanctioned events than anyone on the planet. And I mean that quite literally.

Cooler temperatures and wet conditions are expected this week at Pebble Beach, and that means a premium will be placed on hitting it long and straight. Cue in Zalatoris – currently slotted 4th in SG: Off-the-Tee and 4th in SG: Approach.

After diligently shopping the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am odds around, I latched onto Will at +2400 at BetUS.

Best Bets for the 2021 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am

If Zalatoris isn’t sitting in the winner’s circle on Sunday early evening, all won’t be lost. We can still make some money with the following predictions for the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

Max Homa to Finish Top 10

Max Homa is quietly playing some really good golf. The Cal-Berkley product has made the cut in all four of his starts since the November Masters – three of which he’s landed 21st or better. Max is making his third start at this event. (T10 in 2019, T14 in 2020).

Matt Jones to Finish Top 20

One of the guys who won’t be bothered if the weather turns nasty is this 40-year-old Aussie. Jones has seen every condition imaginable during his career at Pebble Beach – a fruitful one at that. Matt has compiled five top-15 finishes in this event, including tallying a T5 here in 2020. Eight straight made cuts upon his arrival.
