The PGA Tour and DP World Tour get together this week for a co-sanctioned event when the 2023 Genesis Scottish Open at The Renaissance Club in North Berwick, Scotland tees off on Thursday. Red-hot Scottie Scheffler headlines the field and enters as the 7-1 betting favorite in the latest Scottish Open odds from Caesars Sportsbook. Other top contenders in the Scottish Open field include Rory McIlroy (17-2), Patrick Cantlay (14-1), Xander Schauffele (14-1), Rickie Fowler (16-1), and Viktor Hovland (18-1). 

Which 2023 Scottish Open head-to-head matchup picks should you target, and what prop bets could set you up for a strong payday? Before locking in any Genesis Scottish Open 2023 picks of your own, be sure to check out the PGA predictions and betting advice from SportsLine golf expert Mike McClure.

We simulated the 2023 Scottish Open 10,000 times, and there are some major surprises. 

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 $10,000 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.

McClure's model predicted Jon Rahm would finish on top of the leaderboard at the 2023 Sentry Tournament of Champions and The American Express. And at the 2023 Masters, the model was all over Rahm's second career major victory heading into the weekend. Rahm was two strokes off the lead heading into the third round, but the model still projected him as the winner. It was the second straight Masters win for the model, which also nailed Scottie Scheffler winning in 2022.

In addition, the model included Nick Taylor in its best bets to win the 2023 RBC Canadian Open. That bet hit at +7000, and for the entire tournament, McClure's best bets returned nearly $1,900. McClure's best bets also included Jason Day (17-1) winning outright at the 2023 AT&T Byron Nelson and Rickie Fowler (14-1) finishing on top of the leaderboard at the 2023 Rocket Mortgage Classic.

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

Now, McClure has set his sights on the 2023 Genesis Scottish Open field and just revealed his top PGA prop bets. You can head to SportsLine now to see all of McClure's 2023 Scottish Open prop picks, sleepers, head-to-head matchups and best bets.

Top 2023 Genesis Scottish Open prop picks

One of McClure's favorite prop bet picks this week at the Scottish Open 2023 is Justin Thomas finishing in the top 20 of the final leaderboard at +210 odds (risk $100 to win $210). Thomas has been wildly inconsistent in 2023, missing the cut in three of his past four starts. Still, McClure is expecting big things from the two-time major champion this week in Scotland. 

Despite his struggles, Thomas has still managed to rack up nine top-25 finishes this year. The world No. 20 enters the week ranked 12th on the PGA Tour in strokes gained around the green (0.362), 23rd in strokes gained tee-to-green (0.950), and 32nd in strokes gained on approach (0.421). In a deep and talented Scottish Open field, McClure still sees plenty of value in taking Thomas to finish in the top-20 on the final leaderboard for a plus-money payout.
