Dustin Johnson -- already a winner in 2013 -- is understandably a favorite to win at Pebble Beach this week. He's been victorious in the tournament twice before and has finished outside the top 10 just once in five AT&T starts.

Ben Alberstadt, a featured columnist on BleacherReport.com, put together a fun list of predictions for this week's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Writes Alberstadt:

We go from one colorful event on tour to another. Even though the fans from Waste Management Phoenix Open are still nursing their hangovers, it's time to move on to Pebble Beach.

The pro-am format and the abundance of celebrities combine with the incredible beauty of three fantastic golf courses along the California coast to create one of the PGA Tour's unique events.

Here are 10 bold predictions as to what golf fans can expect at the tournament this week.

Unfortunately, an additional heat of caddy races isn't one of them...

Among Alberstadt's predictions:

- Phil Mickelson will win for the second consecutive week (after all, he is the defending champ at Pebble)

- Bill Murray will be... Bill Murray (you know the antics -- expect to see them again this year)

- Dustin Johnson will finish in the top 10 (he's only been outside the top-10 once in five AT&T starts)
