Odds to Win The Fortinet Championship: Rahm Massive Favorite In Weak Field

After a lengthy one-week hiatus, the PGA Tour is back in action with the first event of the 2021-22 season — the Fortinet Championship. It's a soft field, with the exception of World No. 1 Jon Rahm, who is the massive PGA betting favorite this weekend.

After the PGA betting season wrapped up with the FedExCup title... PGA Tour odds are back with the Fortinet Championship.   

A whopping one-week offseason is all that's afforded to Tour members, although the field this weekend at Silverado Resort in Napa, California isn't exactly ripe with star-power.

Here is the first look at the odds to win the Fortinet Championship, the first event of the 2021-22 PGA calendar, teeing off from September 16-19, 2021.

Fortinet Championship pre-tournament favorites

We said it's not a star-studded field... except for OWGR No. 1 Jon Rahm, who is the massive betting favorite at +300. Rahm finished second at the TOUR Championship, giving him four Top-3 finishes in his last five events, and he is likely using this weekend for a tuneup for the upcoming Ryder Cup

It's a big drop to second on the odds board, where World No. 20 Webb Simpson sits at +1,400. Simpson finished 40th in the FedExCup standings last season and will try to get back into form after posting as many missed cuts — three — as Top-10 finishes over his last 13 events. 

Kevin Na is third on the board at +1,600. The World No. 24 finished third at the TOUR Championship and starts the 2021-22 season having posted four Top-10 finishes (three Top 3s) in his last six events. 

The Top 5 is rounded out by World No. 26 Hideki Matsuyama and rising young star Will Zalatoris, both of which sit at +2,200.

Where is the 2021 Fortinet Championship played?

The Fortinet Championship is played at Silverado Country Club (North Course) in Napa, CA. The par-72 course plays at 7,166 yards. It was the original course at Silverado, first opening in 1955, and re-designed by Robert Trent in 1966.

Who won the Fortinet Championship in 2020?

Stewart Cink won the Safeway Open — which this event is now replacing — in 2020, setting a course tournament record at 21-under par, good for a two-stroke win over Harry Higgs. 

What is the Fortinet Championship payout in 2021?

The Fortinet Championship will pay out out a purse of $7.0 million in 2021, with the winner taking home $1.26 million.

How to bet on PGA Tour odds 

The most popular way to bet on golf is by simply picking the winner, which is also referred to as outright. There are plenty of other ways to wager, however. Some of the more popular markets include head-to-head betting, where sportsbooks pair up two golfers and you simply choose who you think will have the lower score over the course of the weekend or for one round only.

There are also 3-way betting markets (choose the best golfer among three choices) and group betting (choose the best golfer amongst a group of players).

Other ways to wager include Top-5/Top-10/Top-20 finish, top golfer by nationality, to make the cut/to not make the cut, and the leader after each round. Then, of course, there's the popular prop bet of whether or not there will be a hole in one at the tournament. 

Where can I bet on the PGA?

You can bet on PGA odds at many online and casino sportsbooks, including PGA outrights, matchup bets, and other golf props. Head over to our best golf betting sites for the top spots to bet on PGA odds in your area.
