As the PGA Tour eased out of its 2021 winter hibernation, golf's elite slowly returned to the tees, with Waste Management Phoenix Open odds the focus during Super Bowl LV week.
Jon Rahm returned to action the week before, giving golf bettors another one of the top pros to back this weekend, along with Justin Thomas, Xander Schauffele, Rory McIlroy and Webb Simpson.
Let's take a look at the odds to win the Waste Management Phoenix Open, which ran from February 4-7, 2021 at TPC Scottsdale.
Who Was the Favorite to Win the Waste Management Phoenix Open?
After withdrawing from the American Express, OWGR No. 2 Jon Rahm was back on the tees the weekend prior at the Farmers Insurance Open. As the pre-tournament favorite, Rahm finished T7 in that event – extending his streak to four straight Top-10 finishes – and was the favorite for this weekend's event as well at +600.
Second on the odds board was Justin Thomas (+750), who had previously played in the Sentry Tournament of Champions, where he finished third.
Just like the weekend before, Xander Schauffele took the third spot at +800. Schauffele had finished inside the Top 20 in all six of his appearances leading into this event, including a tie for second at the Farmers Insurance Open.
Rounding out the Top 5 on the odds board were Rory McIlroy (+1,100) and then-defending champion Webb Simpson (+1,400).

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 an 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. Similarly, 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.
