2021 PGA Tour Northern Trust Golf Picks, Predictions, Odds and Best Bets

2021 PGA Tour Northern Trust Golf Picks, Predictions, Odds and Best Bets

An enthralling season of golf rolls on with the playoffs getting underway at the 2021 PGA Tour Northern Trust on Thursday morning at the Liberty National, NJ. As with every event on the golf schedule, we've got three outright winner picks, ranging from a couple of favorites to some mega value!

We've gone through this week's Northern Trust and found three guys that we like to win this golf tournament, varying from one of the top favorites, who still represents good value, down to some nice value on a couple of stars that look set for big weeks at longer odds! We also show you the best sportsbook promos to play.

With the Top-125 players from the past season fighting for 70 spots next week, we should see some great golf, with plenty of names at big odds to win. 

After successfully picking Garrick Higgo to win the Palmetto Championship at 40/1 and Xander to win gold at the Olympics, we're confident of another outright winner here!

With crowds returning and a host of big names out there, we're set for an awesome four days of golf ... and betting! As we do each and every tournament, we provide you with our best golf picks for outright winner, as well as some in-play picks throughout.

Let's get into our best bets for this week ⬇️

Best Golf Predictions

2021 Northern Trust Best Golf Pick

Dustin Johnson +1700 (17/1)
Bet $10, win $170 at PointsBet Sportsbook

It's playoff season, which means it's time for the big boys to come out to play. And when you think of the bog boys of golf, Dustin Johnson comes to mind straight away.

DJ won the TOUR Championship and comes into the playoffs this season with one thing on his mind: repeating.

One of the biggest killers on the PGA TOUR, Johnson doesn't really have a flaw in his game and is also more than comfortable at Liberty National.

Although he only finished T24 when this tournament was last played here, he was American's best-performing player at the 2017 President's Cup, winning four matches and tying the other! 

DJ is of course the defending champion of this event too, having posted a ridiculous -30 to finish 11(!!) shots ahead of second-placed Harris English. 

At +1700, his odds are simply too good, even if he isn't coming in to the week in the best form of his life.

2021 Northern Trust Value Pick

Patrick Reed +4000 (40/1)
Bet $10, win $400 at PointsBet Sportsbook

When this tournament was last played here at Liberty National, it was Patrick Reed that came out on top, and now that we can get him at +4000, it would be silly not to have a bite!

Reed comes into the week having finished in the Top-35 in six of his last events with a win seemingly not too far away.

As well as the obviously relevant win here in 2019, Reed was another that performed well at the 2017 President's Cup, going 3-1-1 for the week.

Reed isn't always the easiest guy to root for, but trust me, when he's in contention on Sunday and you've got a 40/1 ticket riding him, every little move he makes will be cheered!

2021 Northern Trust Dark Horse

Adam Scott +4500 (45/1)
Bet $10, win $450 at PointsBet Sportsbook

Rarely do we pick a guy two weeks in a row, especially when they hurt us like Adam Scott did last week, but alas, here we are.

Scott played some terrific golf last week despite missing that final putt and will be coming into the week full of confidence.

Before Reed's 2019 win, the most recent time this tournament was played here at Liberty National was in 2013, when, you guessed it, Adam Scott won!

It's a tough field this week, with the Top-125 players from the past year all competing, but with 14 PGA victories to his name, Scott won't be intimidated by anyone and is a serious chance to compete again come Sunday.

Check out Scott's most recent win here👇
