2022 Genesis Scottish Open odds, field: Surprising PGA picks, predictions from model that’s called 8 majors


0

The Scottish Open has historically been a DP World Tour event, but the 2022 Genesis Scottish Open will be giving points to the PGA Tour as well. This change, along with the Open Championship coming up next week, has led to a strong 2022 Genesis Scottish Open field. Former World No. 1 Jon Rahm is the 11-1 favorite in the latest 2022 Scottish Open odds at Caesars Sportsbook. He will have to deal with other 2022 Scottish Open contenders such as Justin Thomas and Scottie Scheffler, who are both priced at 12-1.

U.S. Open champion Matt Fitzpatrick is returning to the course for the first time since hoisting his maiden major trophy last month. He is listed at 18-1 to win this week’s event, but is he worth backing with your 2022 Genesis Scottish Open bets? Before making any 2022 Scottish Open picks, be sure tosee the golf predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

Our proprietary model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been red-hot since the PGA Tour resumed in June of 2020. In fact, the model is up over $10,600 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.

McClure’s model included J.T. Poston in its best bets to win the 2022 John Deere Classic. That bet hit at +5500, and for the entire tournament, McClure’s best bets returned almost $1,100. At the 2022 Masters, McClure’s model was all over Scottie Scheffler’s first career major championship victory heading into the weekend.

In addition, McClure’s best bets included Collin Morikawa winning outright at the 2021 Open Championship, even though he was listed as a massive 40-1 long shot. The model was also all over Jon Rahm’s (10-1) first career major championship victory at the 2021 U.S. Open. Rahm was two strokes off the lead heading into the weekend, but the model still projected him as the winner.

This same model has also nailed a whopping eight majors entering the weekend. Anyone who has followed it has seen massive returns.

Now that the Scottish Open 2022 field is locked, SportsLine simulated the tournament 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected leaderboard.

Top 2022 Genesis Scottish Open predictions

One major surprise the model is calling for at the 2022 Genesis Scottish Open: Scheffler, the No. 1 ranked player in the world and one of the top favorites, stumbles and barely cracks the top five. Scheffler has been the hottest player on tour this season, securing four victories and three runner-up finishes. He’s recorded a total of nine top-10 finishes this season, which includes a T-2 finish at the U.S. Open in June.

However, Scheffler has failed to crack the top-10 in five of his last seven starts on the PGA Tour. In addition, Scheffler currently ranks 121st in driving accuracy percentage (59.35%), 135th in one-putt percentage (38.48%) and 96th in total putting (211.8), which could cause major trouble this week. He’s not a strong pick to win it all and there are far better values in the Genesis Scottish Open 2022 field.

Another surprise: Jordan Spieth, a 30-1 long shot, makes a strong run at the title. Spieth has a much better chance to win it all than his odds imply, so he’s a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. He has quietly been one of the hottest golfers on the PGA Tour of late, winning the RBC Heritage before coming in second place at the AT&T Byron Nelson.

He also carded a top-10 finish at the Charles Schwab Challenge, so he has the form to contend this weekend. Spieth’s numbers also make him worthy of a wager at the Scottish Open, as he is inside the top 30 on the PGA Tour in total strokes gained. He did not play in this event last season, but he is ready to contend for the title this year.

How to make 2022 Scottish Open picks

The model is also targeting three other golfers with odds of 25-1 or longer who will make a strong run at the title, and it has identified a massive long shot higher than 50-1 to back in outright bets. Anyone who backs these long shots could hit it big. You can only see the model’s 2022 Scottish Open picks here.
