Just as he was at the first WGC event of the year, just as he was at the Genesis Invitational, just as he was at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am (before he withdrew), and just as he was the Sentry Tournament of Champions, Dustin Johnson is the betting favorite entering The Players Championship.
Note that Johnson did not win any of those events, but he did capture the Saudi International on the European Tour, in which he was also the pre-tournament favorite.
Johnson is listed by PointsBet Sportsbook at +1100 odds, giving him a slight edge over last week’s winner, Bryson DeChambeau. The reigning champion, Rory McIlroy, who won in 2019, is at +1300. Last year’s Players Championship was canceled after the first round because of COVID-19 concerns.
