Several of the PGA Tour’s best will participate in the Scottish Open this week. The tournament will be played at the Renaissance Club, a par-70 track that’s 7,237 yards long.
To no one’s surprise, Scottie Scheffler, the best player in the world, opened as the favorite to win at +700 at FOX Bet. Xander Schauffele, the defending champion, is also among the favorites in the field, at +1400 to win.
Rounding out the top five are Rory McIlroy (+850), Patrick Cantlay (+1400) and 2015 Scottish Open winner Rickie Fowler (+1600).
I can write a dissertation on how good Scheffler is, but his outright number is just too short for me to throw some pizza money on this week.
Now that we teed off with the basics, let’s approach the favorites and my outright portfolio for this tournament.
Scottie Scheffler +700 (bet $10 to win $80 total)
Rory McIlroy +850 (bet $10 to win $95 total)
Patrick Cantlay +1400 (bet $10 to win $150 total)
Xander Schauffele +1400 (bet $10 to win $150 total)
Rickie Fowler +1600 (bet $10 to win $170 total)
Tyrrell Hatton +1800 (bet $10 to win $190 total)
Viktor Hovland +1800 (bet $10 to win $190 total)
Tommy Fleetwood +2000 (bet $10 to win $210 total)
Jordan Spieth +2500 (bet $10 to win $260 total)
Matt Fitzpatrick +2200 (bet $10 to win $230 total)
Shane Lowry +3000 (bet $10 to win $310 total)
Min Woo Lee +3300 (bet $10 to win $340 total)
Max Homa +3500 (bet $10 to win $360 total)
Wyndham Clark +3500 (bet $10 to win $360 total)
Odds for the complete field at FOX Bet
Aaron Rai Top 20 (+290)
I’m not overthinking this one. He’s won here before (2020) and has four top-25 finishes in his past five starts. I have to make this bet at this number.
“Play the course, not your opponent”
Tommy Fleetwood Top 20 (+120)
Fleetwood has been lights out on this course, finishing runner-up in 2020, T-26 in 2021 and T-4 last year. Love this wager at plus money, especially because I think he has a real chance to win this thing.
OUTRIGHT BETS TO MAKE
Tyrrell Hatton +1800
Tommy Fleetwood +2000
Matt Fitzpatrick +2200
Jordan Spieth +2500
Min Woo Lee +3300
Aaron Rai +6600
