Most of the top players in the PGA Tour are at the Scottish Open this weekend, preparing for the British Open. However, there is still some action stateside as the John Deere Classic takes place at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Illinois. Who gets the nod in the John Deere Classic odds?

TPC Deere Run is a par-71 that stretches out to 7,258 yards. It was cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, Dylan Frittelli’s win from 2019 makes him the defending champion. The lowest winning score here since 2000 is -16, Fritelli won with a -21. Michael Kim won in 2018 with a record score of -27, so there are plenty of birdie chances out here.

To watch the John Deere Classic, you can catch it on The Golf Channel from 3-6 PM ET on Thursday and Friday, and then the same channel on Saturday and Sunday from 1-3 PM ET. Then, the action switches over to CBS.

John Deere Classic Odds – Favorites

Daniel Berger (+900)

Berger has been rested since a T7 at the US Open to continue his stellar season. He finished T33 here in 2019, and T5 in 2017, so Berger is familiar with TPC Deere Run. At 16th, Berger is also the highest-ranked player in the field by 11 spots.

Brian Harman (+1400)

Harman has been rolling with eight top-20s in his last nine starts after a T5 at the Travelers Championship. He won here in 2014 and was T26 in 2019. This is the perfect place for Harman to keep the ball rolling.

Sungjae Im (+1400)

Sungjae Im hits a golf shot

Im is the next highest-ranked player in the field at 27th, and he is coming off a T8 at the Rocket Mortgage Classic. He did have a stretch of three missed cuts in four starts not too long ago, but Im seems to be shaking himself out of his slump. He tied with Harman at T26 here in 2019.

Other favorites: Kevin Streelman (+2000), Russell Henley (+2000)

John Deere Classic Odds – Contenders

Cam Davis (+2500)

Cam Davis poses with the Rocket Mortgage Classic trophy

Davis survived a playoff against Troy Merritt and Joaquin Niemann to win his first PGA title at the Rocket Mortgage Classic, holing out for eagle on the 71st hole to give himself a chance. Davis finished T53 in his first trip to TPC Deere Run in 2019, but he comes into this tournament riding a wave of confidence.

Alex Noren (+3300)

Noren finished T4 in Detroit last weekend, his first top-10 result since the Northern Trust last August. TPC Deere Run is a place that yields lots of birdies, so this is a great place for Noren to try and get his game back to where it was in 2018, when he represented Europe at the Ryder Cup.

Kevin Na (+3300)

Na will be looking to break a trend in which he has alternated missed cuts and average finishes over the last six starts, coming off a T47 at the Travelers Championship. He finished T8 here in 2016, but then missed the cut in 2017, his last appearance in this tournament.

Other Contenders: Si Woo Kim (+3300), Aaron Wise (+3300), Maverick McNealy (+4000), Patton Kizzire (+4000)

John Deere Classic Odds – Longshots

Zach Johnson (+5000)

Johnson sits on the tournament’s board of directions, he won here in 2012 and he has finished runner-up three times. Even though his game isn’t the same now and the two-time major champion is 122nd in the world rankings, Johnson still performs well here, going T3-T34-T5-T16-T37 here in the last five tournaments.

Jhonattan Vegas (+5000)

Vegas is 133rd in the rankings, but putting together a quietly solid season. He finished T57 at the US Open, but prior to that, he finished T2 at the Palmetto Championship at Congaree for his fourth top-20 of the season. Vegas finished T37 here in 2019.

Steve Stricker (+6600)

Steve Stricker hits a bunker shot

Stricker is skipping the US Senior Open, which he won in 2019, to play in a tournament where he is the all-time leader in earnings (Johnson is second) and he won three straight times from 2009 to 2011. He didn’t play here in 2019, but Stricker has gone T43-T5-T52-T35 in his last four starts at TPC Deere Run.

Other Longshots: Hank Leboida (+6600), Kramer Hickok (+8000), Scott Stallings (+8000)
