2023 THE PLAYERS Championship Betting Odds & Picks (March 09-12, 2023)

This year’s PLAYERS Championship will be missing its defending champion. Namely, Cam Smith will not return to defend his title, as he has since left the PGA TOUR for LIV. Still, the rest of the best players in the world will be on the Golf betting Lines board. TPC Sawgrass is one of the most iconic and picturesque tournament golf courses in the United States. And it is an annual stop on the PGA TOUR to host THE PLAYERS Championship. Specifically, THE PLAYERS is known to be the best non-Major field each year.

2023 THE PLAYERS Championship SBG Odds Overview

Accordingly, Sawgrass is always full of sports betting surprises and rarely produces the outcome the betting public expects going in. Late on, Bryson DeChambeau, Hideki Matsuyama, Corey Conners, Justin Thomas, and Si Woo Kim have repeatedly played well here.

Each of the last three winners of this event has opened at odds shorter than 30-1. However, this has historically proven to be a risky event to back the favorites in. To show, THE PLAYERS has also produced three winners at 90-1 or longer odds.

2023 THE PLAYERS Championship Top Contenders

John Rahm +700

It is true that Wise Guys hate picking a guy with single-digit odds. But John Rahm is number one in the world for a reason; He wins more consistently than anyone else. However, Rahm lacks a great record at TPC Sawgrass. Although it seemed like it was his tournament to lose in 2021. But he lost it by trying to hit a hero shot out of a fairway bunker on No. 11.

Rory McIlroy +1100

Late on, the reigning FedEx Cup champ has also been nearly unbeatable. Additionally, he’s won at TPC Sawgrass before. Of great concern is that he’s not been on his game in his last two starts at TPC Scottsdale (T-32) and Riviera (T-29). Still, gamblers give him an edge over most of the field.

Justin Thomas +1600

Since Justin Thomas won here in 2021, he serves as the de facto defending champ, with Cam Smith going to LIV. In turn, Thomas has only won twice on the PGA Tour since 2020. But one came at the Players (2021) and the other at last year’s PGA Championship. So, gamblers view him as something of a big game hunter.

Scottie Scheffler +1200

Speaking of players that deliver in the big events, reigning PGA Tour Player of the Year Scottie Scheffler has won five of the last 13 best tournaments. On the other hand, Scheffler has gone missed cut and T-55 in his first two tries at TPC Scottsdale.
