LIV Golf returns this week after a month off for the penultimate event of its regular season. LIV Golf Chicago will once again see 12 teams of four players compete as major champion Cameron Smith looks to successfully defend his crown from a year ago.
Claiming his first-ever LIV Golf title at Rich Harvest Farms last season, Smith has since gone onto surge with victories at LIV Golf London the start before The Open and most recently at LIV Golf Bedminster the last time the circuit was playing.
He is rightfully the betting favorite but is followed closely behind by LIV Golf Greenbrier winner, Bryson DeChambeau. Mr. 58 will look to grab his second title in the last three starts while Brooks Koepka hopes to find some form from 10-1.
Koepka is the lone player on LIV Golf to be playing in next week’s Ryder Cup and has experienced a middling summer since winning his fifth major championship at Oak Hill in May.
Koepka is joined by Dustin Johnson at 11-1, Talor Gooch at 12-1 and Patrick Reed at 14-1 as the rest of the players listed below 15-1.

LIV Golf Chicago Betting Picks
With this being the second-to-last event of the LIV season, let's try and knock down a winner!
Cameron Tringale To Win +3000
The member of the HyFlyers looks read to break through for his first professional victory.
Tringale has rattled off 11 straight top-20 finishes on LIV Golf with four top-10 efforts intertwined. He contended at LIV Golf Adelaide and looked sharp at both LIV Golf Andalucia and LIV Golf London.
The extended break makes the top of the oddsboard somewhat less appetizing and could give way for someone like Tringale from the mid-range to come through for the title.
Jason Kokrak To Win +4000
Kokrak is one of the few players on LIV Golf to experience recent reps as he finished T-4 on the Asian Tour’s International Series event at the end of August. This continued a fine stretch of play for the big-hitting right hander which should extend into Chicago.
He has now gained strokes in four of his last five events worldwide including +2.17 per round in his T-5 result at Valderrama.
He is clearly trending towards something special, and a win may be in the cards given the closing ability he had previously displayed on the PGA Tour.
Louis Oosthuizen To Win +4500
Oosthuizen is player to feel out rather than trusting the numbers.
The South African struggled before the break with finishes outside the top 20 in his last two LIV Golf events but did look decent at The Open with a T-23 finish.
Prior to this, the former Open champion had finishes of solo fourth at LIV Golf London and T-6 at LIV Golf DC. Having finished inside the top 10 of this tournament a season ago, Oosthuizen has the potential to be a steal at this price.
Phil Mickelson Top-10 Finish +600
In a field of just 48 players, Mickelson should be able to find the top 10.
He arrives having just contended at LIV Golf Bedminster before a horrible final round resulted in a T-9 finish. This followed a strong showing at The Open from a statistical perspective as he led the field in strokes gained approach the first two rounds.
While his form hasn’t been stellar since his transition to LIV Golf, Mickelson had previously found success in Chicago with a T-8 effort in last year’s tournament.
