Olympic Golf Odds: Collin Morikawa Has 7.7% Chance To Win Gold Medal

At just 24-years old, Collin Morikawa is taking the golf world by storm. Most recently, he won the 2021 British Open in spectacular fashion, holding off Jordan Spieth down the stretch in order to claim the top spot.

At such a young age, Collin Morikawa is already a two-time major champion. The Los Angeles native has five PGA Tour wins, three European Tour wins and may be the best chance the United States has at a Men’s Golf gold medal, according to the latest 2021 Olympics odds.

No pressure, right?

With just a few days before the 2021 Olympics get underway in Tokyo, Collin Morikawa is playing the best golf of his short life. So, can he bring home the gold medal for Team USA? Let’s take a look at the 2021 Olympics golf odds and find out.

2021 Olympic Odds: Collin Morikawa’s Gold Medal Odds

It’s remarkable to think that at just 24 years of age, Collin Morikawa has as many major championships as all three of his 2021 Team USA teammates combined, but it’s the truth. Bryson DeChambeau and Justin Thomas have each won one major while Xander Schauffele has yet to win a major.

The latest 2021 Olympic golf odds for the men’s tournament have Morikawa’s best odds available at +1200, but he’s +1000 at every sportsbook except one. So, if you’re going to bet on him, make sure you get the best odds HERE.

At +1200, oddsmakers are implying a 7.7% chance that Collin Morikawa adds a gold medal to his already full trophy case. His +1000 odds imply a 9.1% likelihood.

2021 Olympic Odds: Justin Thomas’ Gold Medal Odds

At the old age of 28-years old, Justin Thomas is the senior member of the Team USA Men’s Golf Team. He also leads the team in PGA Tour wins with 14 and is the 2017 PGA Champion. Thomas is the No. 4 ranked golfer in the world behind Jon Rahm, Dustin Johnson and teammate Collin Morikawa.

But, shockingly, Thomas has the longest gold medal odds of all four Team USA members. At +1400, oddsmakers have given Thomas a 6.7% chance to take home a gold medal.

2021 Olympic Odds: Bryson DeChambeau’s Gold Medal Odds

Perhaps no golfer on Tour has gone through the ups and downs like Bryson Dechambeau. He is one of the most polarizing figures in the sport and his 2021 Olympics odds are all over the place, just like his play has been.

You can get Bryson DeChambeau’s Olympic odds as short as +1000 or as long as +1200, depending where you look. Either way, DeCahmbeau will need to hope his driver, which he publically ripped at the British Open, is agreeing with him this week.

2021 Olympic Odds: Xander Schauffele’s Gold Medal Odds

Xander Schauffele is the picture of consistency, unlike his teammate Bryson DeChambeau. Schauffele is still yet to win an event this year, but he has seven top-10 finishes in 18 events played and he’s made the cut in 16 of 18 tournaments.

The shortest odds for any Team USA golfer at the 2021 Olympics is currently Xander Schauffele’s odds at PointsBet, which sit at +900. But, you can get him at +1000 at every other sportsbook.

2021 Olympic Odds: Men’s Golf Gold Medal Odds

Despite the fact that the Men’s Olympic Golf odds table is dominated at the top by Team USA, with four of the six shortest odds belonging to United States team members, only one of them has been heavily backed in Collin Morikawa.

The most popular Gold Medal pick among bettors has been defending Masters Champion Hideki Matsuyama, with favorite Jon Rahm the second most backed golfer in the Olympic field.
