Jordan Spieth will headline the field of 156 golfers when the 2024 John Deere Classic tees off on Thursday at TPC Deere Run. Spieth is looking for his first win of 2024, and is coming off a disappointing performance at the Travelers Championship. 26-year-old South Korean Sungjae Im is the 14-1 betting favorite in the latest 2024 John Deere Classic odds. Other top contenders in the John Deere Classic 2024 field include Sepp Straka (15-1), Aaron Rai (16-1), Denny McCarthy (18-1), Jordan Spieth (20-1), and Davis Thompson (22-1). The total 2024 John Deere Classic purse is $8 million, with a winner's share of $1.44 million. The winner will also earn 500 FedEx Cup points. 

With most One and Done golf pools about to wrap up, nailing your John Deere Classic one and done picks should be a high priority. Straka is the defending tournament champion and listed among the top contenders this week. Should you target Straka or fade the 31-year-old. Before locking in your 2024 John Deere Classic one and done picks, you need to see what SportsLine DFS pro and PGA expert Mike McClure has to say

The One and Done format is growing in popularity. It has several noticeable similarities to NFL Survivor pools, with the main difference being entries are not eliminated with a bad week. Players pick one golfer per week and earn points based on their selected golfer's prize money for that tournament. Golfers can only be used once per season, and the point format makes nailing majors, signature events, and big money tournaments critical.

McClure is a DFS legend with over $2 million in career winnings, and he's been red-hot on his PGA picks dating back to the PGA Tour restart in June of 2020. McClure uses his proprietary simulation model to analyze the field and crush his golf picks.

McClure has been on fire with his One and Done picks in 2024. At The American Express he backed Justin Thomas, who finished in third place and took home $635,600. At the Genesis Invitational, McClure tabbed Patrick Cantlay, who finished in fourth place at the signature event, as his top OAD pick. At the Cognizant Classic, McClure's top one and done pick, Min Woo Lee, finished in a tie for second place. Finally, at the Arnold Palmer Invitation, another signature event, McClure recommended using Scottie Scheffler and Will Zalatoris. The Result: Scheffler won the event by five strokes, and Zalatoris finished in fourth place.

His hot steak continued at the Players Championship, where McClure again recommended using Scheffler (if was still available) and Xander Schauffele. Both players were in contention until the end, with Scheffler coming out with the win and Schauffele finishing in second place. Then, at the Valspar Championship, McClure listed Cameron Young, who finished in second place, as his top OAD pick.

More recently, at the CJ Cup Byron Nelson, McClure recommended using 50-1 longshot Alex Noren in One and Done pools. Noren would go on to be in contention until the end, before finishing in third place, two strokes off the lead! And at the PGA Championship, McClure targeted Viktor Hovland and Collin Morikawa, who finished in third and fourth places, respectively. He targeted Morikawa again at the Memorial Tournament, where Morikawa finished second.

Finally, at the U.S. Open, McClure's top two one and done picks were Bryson DeChambeau and Rory McIlroy. DeChambeau finished in first place and McIlroy in second. And at the Rocket Mortgage Classic, McClure was backing Aaron Rai, who finished T2.

Now, McClure has his sights on the 2024 John Deere Classic and just revealed his optimal One and Done picks. They are a must-see for any player looking for an edge in their One and Done pool. You can only see McClure's John Deere Classic 2024 one and done picks at SportsLine.

Top 2024 John Deere Classic One and Done picks

One of McClure's favorite OAD plays this week is 30-year-old Jordan Spieth. The talented PGA Tour veteran has been inconsistent in 2024, but remains easily the most accomplished player in the field. Spieth has won three major championships and is a win at the PGA Championship away from completing the career Grand Slam. He enters this week at No. 32 in the Official World Golf Ranking. 

Spieth hasn't had the results he's become accustomed to this year, but he remains one of the best players in the world off the tee. He is currently ranked 16th on the PGA Tour in strokes gained off-the-tee (0.466) and ninth in total driving. As he has proven countless times during his illustrious career, Spieth is a threat to win any tournament he enters. You can see who else to back at SportsLine.
