- Where: Silverado Resort and Spa – North Course in Napa, California
Players to Watch Out For
- Jon Rahm (+350)
Money continues to pour in on Jon Rahm, who leads the market at +350. His only previous appearance here happened in 2015 when he placed 15th; however, it’s not easy to figure out why he is expected to shine this time out.
The Spaniard has a phenomenal record in California, where he has recorded three wins, nine top-5s, and 12 top-10 finishes across 18 starts. Results like that would suggest that he perhaps should be priced much lower than +350.
Most recently has placed T2 at the Tour Championship, T9 at the BMW Championship, and finished third on the Liberty National Golf Course in late August. Despite his success of late, it’s only a matter of time before he cools off, seeing how he has shot joint-lowest 72-hole total at East Lake two weeks back yet still placed second to Patrick Cantlay.
- Kevin Na (+2200)
For our second player to watch, we’re looking at Kevin Na, who is hard to ignore at +2200. The 37-year-old has recently placed third at the East Lake, which was a solid improvement from his T17 at the BMW Championship.
Even though Na is a Korean-born player, he grew up in California and has a course form of 2-7-37 (Missed Cuts). What’s more, he has won the Sony Open in January and has recently made it to the playoffs at Wyndham Championship – eventually lost to Kevin Kisner.
Na is in excellent form, and if he can recreate his showing from the Tour (shot joint-lowest round of the week), he should be a strong candidate for a solid finish.
- Andrew Landry (+25000)
If you’re looking for a longshot bet for the 2021 Fortinet Championship, look no further than Andrew Landry at +25000. He hasn’t been at this best of late, but he hasn’t had to be before to win. If we look past at Landry’s win in 2020 at the American Express in California – he won the tournament straight of a run of five missed cuts.
A similar thing happened when he won the Texas Open when he was also priced at similar odds to where he is now, due to similar reasons. What’s more, he has finished fourth at the RSM Classic last season, having not achieved anything prior to it.
Landry clearly doesn’t need to be in the best form to win big tournaments like this one, and it’s not like he lacks the talent to do so. It’s fair to mention that Landry had made all three cuts here, landing in seventh in his debut and 23rd in 2019, when he was clearly out of shape.
The big reason why we like Landry to win is his solid showing at TPC San Antonio, which has traditionally been a good guide for the Fortinet Championship.
