Welcome to the first best bets for the Scottish Open.

This is the first year the tournament has been part of both the PGA TOUR and the DP World Tour, serving as the latest major set-up. With the Open Championship just around the corner, this is the first time many players have tried links golf. It’s going to be very competitive.

Fourteen of the top 15 players in the world will be at the Renaissance Club ground, which is just east of Edinburgh. This will be the fourth time the tournament has been this year, with the top three ending in a tiebreaker.

Some of the biggest names in golf do well at the Scottish Open, with Jon Rahm, Scottie Scheffler and Xander Schauffele all finishing in the top 10 last year. The last player to win this tournament and then win the Claret Jug the following week was Phil Mickelson in 2013, although that doesn’t happen regularly.

Our team of golf betting analysts have broken down who has the tools to succeed this week while also offering good value to bettors. Take a look at his favorite picks below.

Best Scottish Open 2022 bets

Alexander Bjork—Top 30 (+500)

chris murphy: There is something about Alexander Bjork’s game that makes me change his ways at DFS and bet every time we get abroad.

Bjork always falls into a value range that allows me to play him at lower levels and get some good numbers. This week, it’s set to +28000 to win in FanDuel, moving to all placement positions. I don’t really see a win on the line for the Swede as he only has one from him in his 13-year pro career, but it’s not crazy to think the other final position bets may be on the line.

Bjork sits sixth on the DP World Tour in par 3 scoring and there are five of them up for grabs at the Renaissance Club, so it’s easy to see why she made all three cuts in this event and posted top 30 finishes in each of the latter. two. He has posted top-25 finishes in four of his last five tournaments, proving to be in good form with his game.

This will certainly be a step up in the competition, but I’m going to buy into the field’s history and put together good numbers up and down the board for Alexander Bjork.

Cameron Smith +2800

matthew vicenzi: Smith is coming off a cut miss at this year’s US Open, which gives us a small discount for this week’s Scottish Open. The missed cut was disappointing, but statistically there was nothing to make me believe the Aussie can’t bounce back quickly.

On paper, Renaissance Club should be a perfect fit for Smith. I think golfers can get away with being a little off the tee this week, which is usually the part of their game that can get the 28-year-old in trouble. Smith has ranked first in the field in his last 24 rounds in Birdie or Better: Gained. With scores likely to be close to 20-under this week, depending on the weather, his ability to rack up birdies will be a major advantage.

Smith has seven career wins on the PGA TOUR and DP World TOUR combined. He carries a large amount of winning equity at a discounted price. If he has a recovery week with the irons, he’ll be tough to beat on this course. You can get Smith at 28-1 at BetMGM, BetRivers or WynnBet.

Tommy Fleetwood +5000

Derek Farnsworth: Fleetwood aka Fleetgod aka Tommy Long Locks is my pick to win this week.

I’ve long been an advocate of staking it and using it in DFS whenever it’s not playing on US soil. And to his credit, he’s actually played pretty well on the PGA TOUR this season. He’s always been known as a good all-around ball carrier and iron player, but he’s quietly 9th on the tour in Strokes Gained: Around the Green and 37th in Strokes Gained: Putting. This is a more complete Fleetwood than we’ve seen in the past.

Like Tony Finau and Xander Schauffele, Fleetwood is unfairly labeled a contender who can’t shut the door. However, those narratives only exist until they don’t. Finau won the BMW Championship last fall and Schauffele is fresh from winning the Travelers Championship. More importantly, Fleetwood has five career wins from him on the DP World Tour. He loves golf and has finished T26 and second at the Renaissance Club the last two years.

The best Fleetwood number this week is at BetMGM.

Will Zalatoris +2800

Joshua Perry: This has been a course in which the ironclads have stood out, and theirs have been as good as anyone’s this last year. He played well here last year, finishing 26th, and the form was nowhere near the level he’s running this year. He finished sixth or better in six of his last eight starts.

Zalatoris’ best number this week is 28-1 at Caesars, as of Tuesday night.

Will Zalatoris +2800

Bryan Berryman: With the winds forecast to be somewhat tame (at time of writing), there’s a good chance this event will turn into a birdie fest. I’m targeting elite iron players who can rack up birdies on this stacked course.

There is no one better than Zalatoris, who over the last 24 rounds has ranked in the top 10 in this field in both approach shots and birdie or better percentage.

With three top-5 finishes in his last four starts, Zalatoris is undoubtedly poised for a win. His hitting consistency should allow him plenty of birdie opportunities to keep pace in what should be an exciting week in Scotland. My money is on Zalatoris to win the Scottish Open.
