2023 Farmers Insurance Open Betting Preview, Odds, Picks & Predictions: Our PGA Model Is Backing Schauffele
2023 Farmers Insurance Best Bets Fresh off of his win at the American Express last week, Jon Rahm is a huge favorite this week at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines and is rightfully getting a lot of buzz. The 156-man field will play the North Course once and the South Course once before the 36-hole cut to the low 65 (plus ties) whittles things down. At a crazy 7,765 yards, Torrey South is the longest course on the PGA Tour while Torrey North measures at 7,258 yards. Therefore, length off the tee will be an important factor to consider this week. Luke List won this event with a -15 sc...
Bettors Love Max Homa In Home State Ahead Of Farmers Insurance Open
Max Homa has emerged as one of the top golfers in PGA Tour odds over the last few years, and a significant reason why has been his play in his home state of California with courses that have poa greens. Born and raised in Los Angeles, the 32-year-old has played in 12 events on poa greens on the West Coast (Farmers Insurance Open, AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, Genesis Invitational and Fortinet Championship) in the last three years.  In those events, he’s missed only one cut to go along with 11 top-20 finishes. On top of that, he has won three of them – 2021 Genesis Invitational and the Fortinet C...

2023 American Express Betting Preview, Odds, Picks & Predictions: Our PGA Model Is Backing Cantlay
2023 American Express Best Bets The PGA Tour heads to California this week for the 2023 American Express. This is an interesting event since the first three rounds will be played on three different courses: the Pete Dye Stadium Course at PGA WEST, Jack Nicklaus Tournament Course at PGA WEST and the La Quinta Country Club. At the end of those first three rounds, the 156-man field will be cut to the top 65 and ties before the final round which will take place at the Stadium Course.

2023 Sony Open: Best Bets & Sleeper Picks
2023 Sony Open Best Bets Wai’alae Country Club in beautiful Honolulou, Hawaii will host this week’s Sony Open as 144 of the world’s best golfers compete for their share of the $7.9 million purse. The Par-70, 7,044-yard course had a scoring average of (a very low) 67.998 last year and this tournament has been a yearly staple on Tour since 1965. Despite that, only one golfer (Russell Henley) won in his debut at the course, so our model’s best bets below will key in on multiple players with experience at Wai’alae. We hit Jon Rahm’s Top 5 finish (+145) at the Sentry Tournament of Champions last ...
2023 Sentry Tournament Of Champions Best Bets
The Sentry Tournament of Champions is the first PGA event in 2023 and features a limited field of just 39 pros. In order to get an invite, golfers had to either win a tournament in 2022 or qualify for the 2022 Tour Championship. Since Rory McIlroy is the only qualified golfer to deny the invite, this field features the best players on Tour, who will battle it out for the $15 million purse. Expect some low scores at the Plantation Course in Kapalua, Hawaii. With warm, perfect conditions, this course historically plays easy and this year shouldn’t be an exception. Keep in mind that last year’s...

Bettors Like Justin Thomas, Tony Finau at Hero World Challenge
While the PGA Tour won’t have a full-field event until January, that doesn’t mean golf betting has to wait until then. The Hero World Challenge, hosted by Tiger Woods at the Albany Golf Club in the Bahamas, will take place Dec. 1-3 and features a loaded field. Sixteen of the top 21 players in the Official World Golf Rankings make up the 20-player field. Woods was originally scheduled to play but withdrew earlier in the week due to plantar fasciitis in his foot. When it comes to betting on the winner, bettors seem to be looking at past history at this event.  As of Tuesday at the BetMGM online...
3 RSM Classic 2022 Predictions From BetMGM
The Fall Swing of the 2022-23 PGA Tour season is nearing its end, with the last full-field event of the calendar season this week at The RSM Classic, which has a purse of $8.1 million. Following Tony Finau’s withdrawal ahead of the event, Brian Harman (No. 26) is the highest-ranked player in the field. With not many stars teeing it up, I will keep my betting card simple, hoping to make up for a subpar fall and gain momentum for the 2023 calendar year.  The RSM Classic Predictions: 3 Picks Keith Mitchell Top-10 Finish +260 (1 Unit) Denny McCarthy Top-10 Finish +260 (1 Unit) Ben Griffin Top-2...
2022 RSM Classic Best Bets
The PGA Tour rolls on to Sea Island Golf Club in Georgia for this week’s event, as some of the top golfers in the world compete for their share of the $8.1 million purse. Last week, we correctly predicted Tony Finau to win the Houston Open (+1800) along with Jason Day’s Top 20 finish (+155) and Justin Rose’s Top 40 finish (+125). In previous weeks, the model nailed Russell Henley’s Top 10 Finish (+550) when he won the World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba and Seamus Power’s Top 5 Finish (+500) hit when he won the Bermuda Championship, so we are primed to identify some more valuable e...
