The Players Championship Betting Tips 2021 – Four Each-way Bets to Place

Duston Johnson golf tips

The signature week bar the majors comes this week on the PGA Tour and we have four each-way bets for our Players Championship betting tips below.

We head to the iconic TPC Sawgrass for what is known as the “Fifth Major”, The Players Championship. It is a stellar line-up as expected and there’s plenty of value within the betting markets.

Paddy Power are paying TEN places for each-way bets on this event, so you could use their current sign-up offer to get yourself £40 in free bets including £20 to spend on our Cheltenham Festival tips for today.

Paddy Power Cheltenham tips


Xander Schauffele – 20/1 with Paddy Power (10 places)

My first selection is XANDER SCHAUFFELE 20/1 EW. Xander has been one of the most consistent golfers on the planet over the last 18 months and tends to save his best golf for the real big events. He hasn’t made a cut in his last 23 starts and he’s been knocking on the door to return to the winners circle recently including in Phoenix last month. This course suits his game well as he can move the ball both ways off the tee, has strong approach play which is backed up with strong putting performances. He was 2nd here in 2018 which backs that up and he’s ready to win a big one. He leads the tour in all round stats which is significant and shows how much of a complete player he is at the moment.


Jordan Speith – 30/1 with bet365 (8 places)

My next selection is JORDAN SPIETH 30/1 EW The confidence is well and truly back and this is key for the mindset of Jordan Spieth. He spoke in his interview after a solid finish for 4th last Sunday about how happy he is with his game and it’s the first time he’s felt in a good place for a long time. His game is certainly trending in the right direction and he has been consistently putting strong results together over the last few months. His record at Sawgrass isn’t stellar but he has finished 4th here back in 2014. The confidence is what draws me too him here as there’s nothing more dangerous for fellow golfers that a confident Jordan Spieth who appears to have his swagger back. He’s holing putts from everywhere which can’t be a negative either.


Tommy Fleetwood – 45/1 with bet365 (8 places)

My next selection is TOMMY FLEETWOOD 45/1 EW. He really caught the eye last week where his tee to green game looked very close to his best and it was really encouraging to see him record a top 10 finish after a poor display the previous week. He has a good record in the state of Florida and that includes TPC Sawgrass. He led after 36 holes here in 2019 before finishing tied 5th come Sunday. The course suits his game well and he’s trending in the right direction. I rate him the best each way bet this week.


Andrew Putnam – 150/1 with Betfred (10 places)

My final selection is a speculative one and it is ANDREW PUTNAM 150/1 EW. Putnam is one of the best putters on tour but the rest of his game has really shined over the last few weeks which is backed up by strong finishing results. He’s finished in the top 5 on his last two starts and last weeks 5th at the iconic Bay Hill can only give him confidence going into this week. He is arguably in the form of his life at the moment and has to be a lively outsider this week given the each way terms on offer.
