2021 Valspar Championship Betting Update

There's always an influx on betting activity on Monday for the weeks upcoming PGA Tour event, as sharp bettors look to catch-out sportsbooks who might have given a bit of value on a few players. The Valspar Championship odds market was no different, as we saw thousands of online bettors head to the market to wager their early leans.

The most popular option in the Valspar Championship odds market on Monday was Corey Conners, the Canadian accounted for 8.4% of all bets placed on this week's PGA Tour event. 

Despite Jason Kokrak's odds of winning the Valspar Championship sitting at +4000, the big American was the second most wagered, Kokrak accounted for 6% of all bets placed.

Justin Rose is starting to show some form after a few injury concerns, and he's fancied by a few sharp bettors this week, he's been the 3rd most wagered in the odds market, accounting for 5.8% of all bets. 

With his recent record at this PGA Tour event, you'd think Paul Casey would be a popular option in the betting market and DFS this week. Even though early bettors haven't gone mad on Casey, he's still been the 6th most wagered player in the market. 

There's been no love at all for Dustin Johnson in the Valspar Championship odds market, DJ has accounted for just 1.3%of bets to date, which makes him less popular than players such as Henrik Stenson and Chase Seiffert.

2021 Valspar Championship Picks & DFS Predictions: Fantasy Fades

There are various assumptions we can apply looking at the early betting in the Valspar Championship odds market which could help shape fantasy selections ahead of the event. 

Who Will Be A Popular DFS Pick:

Corey Conners: There's no doubting that Corey Conners will be a very popular DFS pick this week. The Canadian is dominating the betting, and has been predicted to win the event by a few sharp handicappers. 

Jason Kokrak: Jason Kokrak is normally a popular pick on DraftKings given the salary he normally sits at. Kokrak is $8,700 this week, and given the early activity in the betting market we expect to him to be a popular play in this range. 

Keith Mitchell: Keith Mitchell is $7,000 on DraftKings this week for the Valspar Championship. Despite being a long-shot to win the event, he's proved a popular play in the betting market so will likely feature heavily on DraftKings this week. 

Who Won't Be A Popular DFS Pick:

Dustin Johnson: Dustin Johnson will be low owned this week at the Valspar Championship, he's the 2nd most expensive player on DraftKings so it's a bit of a gamble, but well worth chancing him in at least one line-up. 

Viktor Hovland: There's been very little betting activity for Viktor Hovland in the Valspar Championship odds market to date. If this transfers over the DFS, then you could get a low owned Hovland. 

Ryan Palmer: Ryan Palmer has been in pretty handy form over the last few months, and given he's only accounted for 0.9% of bets in the Valspar Championship winner market, we expect him to be low owned.
