QBE Shootout pre-tournament favorites

Three-time winners and defending champions Harris English and Matt Kuchar are back together for this event, trying to win it for a record fourth time. They wiped the floor with everyone last year, winning with a tournament-record 37-under 179, beating out Rory Sabbatini and Kevin Tway by nine strokes (also a tournament record). Though they have strong odds at +650, there are a couple of pairings above them on the pre-tournament odds board. 

Topping the board is Sam Burns & Billy Horschel, available at +400. Both guys have won recently - Horschel won the BMW PGA Championship in September, and Burns won the Sanderson Farms Championship a few weeks ago. On top of that, Burns is on an absolute heater, with Top-10 finishes in six of his last nine PGA Tour starts, with the other three finishes being T14, T17, and T21. 

Second on the board is Jason Kokrak and Kevin Na, available at +550. Kokrak won the Houston Open a couple of weeks ago and is making his first start in this tournament with Kevin Na, who played in last year's competition alongside Sean O'Hair.

Some other notable pairings include Max Homa and Kevin Kisner (+700), Jason Day and Marc Leishman (+800), and Bubba Watson, who's paired with LPGA star Lexi Thompson (+3,300).

The 2021 QBE Shootout is being played at the Tiburon Golf Club's Gold Course in Naples, Florida. The Greg Norman-designed track is a par-72 that plays just under 7,400 yards.

Who won the QBE Shootout in 2020?

Harris English and Matt Kuchar won in 2020, setting the tournament scoring record, with a 37-under 179, winning by nine strokes to top their 2013 record of seven.

What is the QBE Shootout payout in 2021?

The Hero World Challenge purse for 2021 is $3.6 million, with $895,000 million going to the winners.

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.
