2021 Barracuda Championship Odds

This week's PGA Tour odds market is pretty bleak due to the WGC FedEx St Judes Invitational happening on the same weekend. The world's best players have headed to Memphis to play for the big money, leaving a selection of PGA Tour players to battle out for a win at Tahoe Mt. Club. 

The Barracuda Championship odds market is wide open, with plenty of players in the betting looking for their first PGA Tour victory. Last year's winner, Richy Werenski will be popular in the PGA Tour betting this weekend. 

Gary Woodland is the headline act at the Barracuda Championship, and he will be desperate to claim victory so he can start playing in events like the WGC FedEx St Judes again. 

Despite Woodland being in the field, Brandon Grace heads the Barracuda Championship odds market, and there's then a selection of players including Thomas Pieters, Brendan Steele, Emiliano Grillo and Aaron Wise. 

It doesn't matter how strong this weeks PGA Tour field is, betting a winner will still return you the same amount as a normal event. 

The Barracuda Championship is a little different to every other event on the PGA Tour, as it's the tours only Modified Stableford. See below for more information on how Modified Stableford scoring works.

Modified Stableford Scoring At The 2021 Barracuda Championship

Modified Stableford scoring rewards aggressive players, with points given based on the score for the hole. An Albatross is worth +8, an Eagle +5, a Birdie +2, a Par 0, a bogey -1, and a double bogey or worse is -3. 

Richy Werenski won the event with 39 points in 2020, but the two events previously were won on 47 points by Collin Morikawa and Andrew Putnam. 

2021 Barracuda Championship Course Breakdown

Course: Tahoe Mountain Club (Old Greenwood) Truckee, CA

Par: 72

Course Length: 7,518 yards

As mentioned aggressive play will be key to winning the Barracuda Championship, with the course lending itself to bigger hitters with solid approach play. 

There are three drivable par 4's which could lead to plenty of eagles in the week which will be key to scoring big on this week's PGA Tour event. 

2021 Barracuda Championship Predictions & Picks 

Focusing on players who go big off the tee, solid approach game and have the potential to get a few eagles is a pretty safe DFS tactic for the Barracuda Championship.
