The Players Championship gets underway on Thursday for what should be a fantastic weekend of golf from the world's best players. That list of the best golfers includes Jordan Spieth, but his results at TPC Sawgrass to this point in his career have been less than stellar.

In eight attempts at The Players Championship, Spieth has missed the cut five times. His best showing, a fourth-place finish, happened in 2014 during his first time playing at the event.

Still, Jordan Spieth has proven that counting him out, no matter what his course history says, can be a losing proposition.

So, how exactly should you bet on Jordan Spieth's Players Championship odds? Will he even make the cut, yet alone contend to win the event? When does Jordan Spieth tee off? We set out to answer these questions and more.

Players Championship Prediction - Jordan Spieth

It's tough to be overly optimistic about Jordan Spieth's chances at this year's Players Championship. Spieth has two top-10 finishes in his last three events, including a T4 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, but his form at TPC Sawgrass has just never been good enough to get it done.

Even worse is how Spieth has performed in the opening round at The Players Championship in the past. In his career, Spith has shot under par in the opening round of The Players Championship just two times. If you take out his first appearance here, which seems to be an outlier, it's his opening-round 70 in 2021 that stands alone under par.

Spieth continues to be one of the best players in the world around the green, but his struggles off the tee are also well documented this season.

What is crazy to me is that Spieth has missed the cut here in five out of eight tries and I can get him to miss the cut at +200. Sign me up!
