Scottie Scheffler is favored at the Genesis Scottish Open

Genesis Scottish Open Odds & Picks: Schefflers Eyes Redemption

The PGA Tour heads across the pond for the second straight season for a co-sanctioned event with the DP World Tour.

The 2023 Genesis Scottish Open will welcome a field filled with players from both circuits as well as eight of the top 10 players in the Official World Golf Rankings.

Headlining the action and the oddsboard is world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler at +700. Scheffler’s experience on links golf courses is not extensive, but it is still very good.

With three top-25 finishes under his belt in four starts between the Scottish Open and The Open, Scheffler should have a great chance to continue the current run he is on.

The New Jersey native arrives at The Renaissance Club with six straight top-five finishes and 18 straight top-12 finishes dating back to October 2022.

Rory McIlroy at +800 looks to make an impression on the Scottish links a week before he returns to Royal Liverpool for the first time since his 2014 Open victory.

After a slow start to his year, McIlroy has found a new gear racking up five straight top-10 finishes including at the PGA Championship and U.S. Open.

Xander Schauffele looks to successfully defend his Scottish Open title at +1400 while his good friend Patrick Cantlay hopes to enter the winner’s circle for the first time this season from the same price.

Recent winners Rickie Fowler and Viktor Hovland round out the list of players priced below +2000.

2023 Genesis Scottish Open Picks

With Scheffler in the mix, it's hard to pass up on him but we have a couple longer shots to consider as well.

Scottie Scheffler To Win +700

Over the last year there has been no golfer on the planet better than Scheffler. While he has only racked up two victories this year, the WM Phoenix Open and the Players Championship, the world No. 1 is enjoying a much more consistent season compared to last year.

Over the last six months, he is the only player in the world to be averaging more than three strokes gained per round. A bulk of this has come from tee-to-green as he ranks first in this category, first in strokes gained off the tee, first in strokes gained approach and second in strokes gained around the green among those in the field.

He also ranks inside the top 25 in terms of driving accuracy and driving distance, and despite his lack of experience has thrived in this setting. Although Scheffler missed the cut in the Scottish Open last season, he racked up a T-12 finish here, and T-8 finish at The Open the year prior. 

Tyrrell Hatton To Win +2000

The Englishman has quietly become one of the most consistent golfers on the PGA Tour. Before registering just, a top-30 finish at the U.S. Open, Hatton was rolling. Finishing inside the top 20 in six straight starts, Hatton collected top-five results at the Wells Fargo Championship, Byron Nelson and the Canadian Open.

He ranks seventh in this field in total strokes gained over the last six months and is one of two players to rank inside the top 40 of each strokes gained metric during that same time.

In his two trips to The Renaissance Club, Hatton has finished inside the top 20 on both occasions. Expect more of the same from him this week and even more so if the weather proves to pester as it is expected to.

Wyndham Clark To Win +4000

The U.S. Open winner continues to get disrespected in the betting markets. A winner not only at Los Angeles Country Club but also Quail Hollow Club for the Wells Fargo Championship, Clark has asserted himself as a top-10 player in the world.

He ranks eighth in this field in total strokes gained over the last six months and 10th in terms of strokes gained tee-to-green. In his debut appearance last season, Clark finished a respectable T-16 and gained nearly eight strokes off the tee and on approach.

The putter failed him that week but given the way in which he is currently rolling the rock, the 29-year-old should be able to improve on that and become just the second three-time winner this season.

Corey Conners To Win +5000

Whenever the weather gets dodgy, it becomes wise to side with those players who are the best ball strikers. There are few, if any, more competent than Conners. The Canadian ranks seventh in strokes gained tee-to-green, seventh in strokes gained off the tee and 12th in strokes gained approach over the last six months.

During this span, Conners not only claimed his second career victory at the Valero Texas Open but also contended at the Wells Fargo Championship and the PGA Championship. He has since factored at his home open and finished inside the top 10 his last time out at the Travelers Championship.

He admittedly struggled with links golf at the onset of his career, but his numbers suggest him getting more comfortable. He has made his last three cuts in Scotland and includes a T-15 result at the 2021 Open.

Thomas Detry To Win +12500

If there is a horse for the course it is Detry. In four appearances here, Detry has made the cut in each and includes a playoff loss to Min Woo Lee in 2021 and a quality top-10 finish last year. The game has been spotty the last handful of months, but if there is a place for him to get right it is The Renaissance Club.
