2020 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open odds, predictions: Picks from proven model that called six majors

The 2020-21 PGA Tour schedule rolls on with a stop in Las Vegas this week as the 2020 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open tees off from TPC Summerlin on Thursday. Last year, Kevin Na climbed the leaderboard and claimed his fourth career PGA Tour victory, beating Patrick Cantlay in a playoff. The 2020 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open field features plenty of proven PGA Tour champions, including Na, Cantlay, Bryson DeChabmeau, Rickie Fowler, Jason Day and Sergio Garcia, who collected his 11th-career PGA Tour title last week in Mississippi. 

Garcia is a 35-1 long shot in the latest 2020 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open odds from William Hill, well behind DeChambeau, who is the favorite at 7-1. Webb Simpson (10-1), Cantlay (16-1), Collin Morikawa (20-1) and Hideki Matsuyama (20-1) are the only other 2020 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open contenders getting 20-1 odds or lower. Before locking in your 2020 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open picks or entering any PGA DFS tournaments on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel, be sure to see the latest golf predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

SportsLine’s prediction model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been on fire since the return of the PGA Tour in June. In fact, it’s up over $13,500 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.

After nailing Sergio Garcia (+5500) finishing on top of the leaderboard at the Sanderson Farms Championship, McClure finished up over $6,200 yet again last week on his best bets. The model had him in the top five from the start and McClure’s best bets included Garcia winning outright. Those who followed that advice saw a massive +5500 return. 

He also finished profitable at the U.S. Open, nailing two of his best bets, including a +1100 top-five bet on Matthew Wolff. McClure hit a top-five bet (+1200) on Doc Redman at the Wyndham Championship, finishing up over $700 on his best bets. 

The model was all over Dustin Johnson (8-5) finishing on top of the leaderboard at the Tour Championship and Justin Thomas winning the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational at 12-1. And at the 3M Open, McClure’s best bets returned a whopping $1,100 as he nailed a top-five pick on Max Homa (+1200) and a top-20 pick on Talor Gooch (+400). Those are just some of his recent big returns. 

In all, the advanced computer model has also nailed a whopping six majors entering the weekend. Anyone who has followed its golf picks has seen massive returns. 

Now that the 2020 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open field is locked, SportsLine simulated the event 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected leaderboard.

The model’s top 2020 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open predictions 

One huge shocker the model is calling for at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open 2020: Patrick Cantlay, one of the top Vegas favorites at 16-1 according to William Hill, stumbles and barely cracks the top five. Cantlay has been absolutely dominant at this event over the last three years. He finished on top of the leaderboard in 2017, and has followed that up with back-to-back runner-up finishes at TPC Summerlin. However, Cantlay has struggled mightily in his most recent starts, finishing outside the top-30 in five of his last six events on the PGA Tour.

Cantlay’s inconsistent performances can be directly attributed to his inability to find the fairway off the tee. The two-time PGA Tour champion finished last season ranked 114th in driving accuracy percentage (59.35), which doesn’t bode well for his chances to finish on top of the leaderboard this week. He’s not a strong pick to win it all and there are far better values in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open 2020 field.

Another surprise: Harris English, a massive 28-1 long shot, makes a strong run at the title. He has a much better chance to win it all than his odds imply, so he’s a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. English enters the 2020 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open on an impressive hot streak.

The 31-year-old has finished inside the top-20 in seven of his last nine PGA Tour events, a span that includes a runner-up finish at The Northern Trust and a fourth-place finish at the U.S. Open. It’s tough to find many holes in his game right now as he ranks in the top 20 in scoring average (66.664), strokes gained: tee-to-green (2.068), strokes gained: around-the-green (1.545) and strokes gained: putting (1.269). With strong stats across the board and long odds this week, Harris is a great choice for your 2020 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open bets.
