The 2021 Tokyo Olympics men’s golf tournament will tee off at 7:30 a.m. Tokyo time Thursday morning, which is 6:30 p.m. ET in the United States. We’ve got a host of big names in the stroke-play tournament and the betting public is all over two of the biggest names from America to take home the gold.
A day out from the tournament, bettors at DraftKings Sportsbook have placed a leading 13% of bets on Collin Morikawa to win and a leading 15% of betting handle on Justin Thomas. Morikawa is No. 1 in the FedExCup standings and has wins at the British Open and at the WGC-Workday Championship to go along with second place at the Memorial and fourth place at the U.S. Open. Thomas is No. 8 in the FedExCup standings and has a win at THE PLAYERS Championship, and top four showings at the Masters, Sentry Tournament of Champions, and ZOZO Championship.
The splits below were impacted by a pair of significant withdrawals over the past week. American Bryson DeChambeau and Spaniard Jon Rahm were both forced to withdraw because they tested positive for COVID-19. Patrick Reed replaced DeChambeau and Jorge Campillo has replaced Rahm.
- Justin Thomas (+1100): 15% handle, 9% bets
- Collin Morikawa (+650): 11% handle, 13% bets
