The Scottish Open this week is considered a precursor to next week’s Open Championship, but the field for this week’s event is not to be scoffed at. 

Of the top 50 ranked golfers in the world, 49 of them will be on the links-style course at The Renaissance Club. 

It’s a who’s who on the golf betting board, led by Jon Rahm and Scottie Scheffler, who are +1200 co-favorites on most sports betting apps

Justin Thomas is right behind the favorites with golf odds of +1400, with Xander Schauffele and Matt Fitzpatrick close behind at +1800. In addition to the big favorites of the PGA Tour, there are several standouts from the DP World Tour who hope to contend on a course they’re familiar with.

2022 Scottish Open Expert Prediction

Will Zalatoris, Top 10 Finish

Odds: +260 at DraftKings

Zalatoris is playing as well as anyone on the PGA Tour. He took second place at the U.S. Open and the PGA Championship, and was sixth at The Masters. In other words, top 10 in each of the first three majors, with ease. 

The Scottish Open is a true tune-up for the British Open, so expect Zalatoris to take this weekend seriously. His game suits this course, as he is a top-20 long driver, avoids costly mistakes and, most notable for him, ranks No. 1 on the tour in Strokes Gained: Approach. 

Another top-10 finish here leading into the final major of 2022 is a very realistic spot for Zalatoris. We will scoop up these sizeable odds at DraftKings

2022 Scottish Open Betting Tips

This is the first tournament co-sanctioned by the PGA Tour and the DP World Tour, as a reaction to the LIV Golf threat. While most of the world’s top golfers are from the PGA, this is a links-style course and could give an edge to the many European players in the field. 

The wide fairways benefit the boomers, while the shifty greens offer an edge to those who can put the ball where they want it on the approach. Big hitters and those who are solid in Strokes Gained: Approach are on a course built for them so keep that in mind when wagering on betting sites this week.

There will be ample birdie opportunities but also holes – greens especially – where things can unravel. Three-putt avoidance is worth looking at. You don’t need to be top 10 in that category, but if you’re not top 100, it could make for a long (or short) weekend.
