The PGA TOUR heads to one of its most iconic venues this week for the 2021 Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines. Even though a couple of big names won’t make the trip, this is probably the deepest full-field event we’ve seen so far in the new year.

Jon Rahm, who withdrew from The American Express last week, is back and healthy and tops the board as the +700 ($10 bet wins $70) favorite. The World No. 2 has made one start in 2021, finishing T7 at the Sentry Tournament of Champions. Prior to that, he strung together back-to-back top-10 finishes at the Zozo and The Masters.

It’s been a bit of a grind for Rory McIlroy over the past 12 months, but the Northern Irishman is fresh off a third-place finish in Dubai last week so he’s getting plenty of respect from bookmakers for the trip to Torrey Pines. McIlroy is just behind Rahm at +850.

Xander Schauffele opened as the third-favorite at +1100. Schauffele didn’t nab a victory in 2020, but he closed the season in some style. He finished fifth at the U.S. Open, second at the CJ Cup and then wrapped up the year with back-to-back T17s at the Zozo and The Masters. Schauffele has made one start in 2021, finishing T5 at the Tournament of Champions.

The American Express was another “close, but no cigar” moment for Tony Finau as he finished fourth after holding a share of the 54-hole lead. Bettors and DFS players often gravitate toward Finau, but he’s up near the top of the board at +1600 this week, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if he’s passed over after another disappointing finish.

There are a couple of intriguing names in the mid-tier, including defending champion Marc Leishman at +4000. The Aussie put together one of the more improbable wins at Torrey Pines in 2020 as he struggled to find fairways but was dialed in with his approach and short game.

After falling out of form for most of 2020, Leishman seemed to find something at Augusta and finished T13. That result was fresh on the mind of bettors after the offseason as Leishman was a chic sleeper pick for the TOC, where he finished T24, and the Sony, where he ended up T4.

Another name to keep an eye on in this range is Gary Woodland. After battling injuries to close out 2020, the 2019 U.S. Open champion looked more like his old self with a top-20 finish at The American Express. You can expect a seemingly healthy Woodland to attract some action at +8000.

Bettors were quickly enamored with Will Zalatoris when he burst onto the scene with a T6 finish at the 2020 U.S. Open. The current Korn Ferry Tour points leader then followed that up with a T6 at the Corales Puntacana before missing the cut at the Sanderson Farms. Zalatoris bounced right back with a T5 at the Shriners.

The fact that this is Zalatoris’ 2021 debut could keep bettors off him, but there could be plenty of people looking to back Zalatoris at +6600.

Zalatoris is one of a handful of young stars making the trip to Torrey Pines. Viktor Hovland, Scottie Scheffler, Sungjae Im, and Matthew Wolff are all between +3000 and +3500 this week. Also in that range is The American Express winner, Si Woo Kim at +3300.

One name to keep an eye on over the next couple of days is Francesco Molinari. The 2018 Open Champion only played three events after the hiatus in 2020, and he missed the cut in two of them, so he’s been off the betting radar for quite some time.

That could change this week. Molinari was hanging around the leaderboard at The American Express, so he could be worth circling at +6600.

Another sleeper who could have some buzz is Byeong-hun An (+9000). The affable-yet-mercurial South Korean hadn’t popped on a leaderboard for quite some time, but he came out of the gates firing at The American Express, which was his 2021 debut. An has a bit of a cult following among golf speculators — I would know since I belong to said cult following — so don’t be surprised if An catches some love as a potential longshot at Torrey Pines.

Speaking of longshots, there are a couple of big names with big prices this week including Rickie Fowler, Jordan Spieth and Phil Mickelson, who are at +6600, +8000 and +15000, respectively.
