PGA 2022: Scottish Open betting overview

It’s an interesting week on the PGA Tour because we actually have a few different events. There’s the Scottish Open (below) and the Barbasol Championship.

The Scottish Open has a beautiful field headlined by Jon Rahm at the top of the odds table. With The Open Championship next week, many are using it to acclimate to being “across the pond”. Also, this is the last chance to qualify for this event.

For an event in Europe, one always wonders if it is an advantage for the Europeans or the Americans on the Tour. Some say yes, because there’s a bit more comfort with the elements, but it’s still hard to argue that that’s enough to turn the tide.

Either way, nine of the top 10 in the world rankings are vying for the title this week, which should make for an interesting event. Rahm may be top of the odds chart, but we haven’t seen his best golf in a while.

It should be noted that last year Matt Fitzpatrick finished tied for second after a playoff run. That and the fact that he is coming off a victory at the US Open makes him a player you need to watch this week.

Bets to consider

Cam Smith +2500

He’s a guy you want to shop with because you might be able to get +3000 on some books. He’s not always the best at the start, but on this course that won’t matter as much. He wasn’t good at the US Open, so we’re probably getting him at a discount.

Johannes Veerman +20000

This one is definitely a longshot but he has some success on the course (an eighth place finish) and comes to this event in pretty good shape. You can’t bet big on these odds, but it’s worth having in your wallet this weekend.

Jordan Spieth +3000

He is used to playing well in events before the big ones. Some players just go with the flow, but Spieth seems to like the idea of ​​creating positive momentum. They’ve been to the Open, but some of the best runs of his career have been in Europe.

Alex Noren Top 20 (+350)

Dive into the location pool again with this pick. Almost all of the Swede’s best results have come at European events. I like that we just need him to be relevant in this place and we can still get that very positive result. He has a lot of experience playing in Scotland.

Tommy Fleetwood Top 10 (+400)

He may have missed the cut at the US Open, but Fleetwood has three Top 10 finishes in his last seven events. Some of his best results also came when the Tour hit Europe. Similar to Noren above, this is a very nice reward for a result where we don’t need him in the hunt for the back nine. He’s also had some recent success on this course (lost in the 2020 playoffs).
