2021 Fortinet Championship Odds: Can a 100/1 Bet Pay Off?

2021 Fortinet Championship Predictions & Betting Picks
Given Steele's history at this course -- four top-25 finishes, two wins, and zero missed cuts since 2014 -- it's hard to completely ignore him at 100/1 odds. And yes, I'm aware that he's missed the cut in four of his last five tournaments -- but at that price, I don't care.
