2023 Memorial Tournament odds, picks, field: PGA predictions, best bets from model that nailed nine majors

After missing the cut in his first appearance at the Memorial Tournament in 2017, Jon Rahm has enjoyed several successful returns to Muirfield Village Golf Club. Rahm is the 2020 Memorial champion, and he finished tied for 10th at last year’s event. This year, the Spaniard is 7-1 to win according to the 2023 Memorial Tournament odds on Caesars Sportsbook, which is second-best in the field.

The favorite is world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler (6-1), who has two wins and 11 top-10 finishes this season. Both golfers will have to outplay other Memorial Tournament 2023 contenders like Rory McIlroy (14-1), Xander Schauffele (12-1) and Patrick Cantlay (10-1). Before locking in your 2023 Memorial Tournament picks, be sure to see the golf predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

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 nearly $8,700 on its best bets since that point, 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 Hardy and Davis Riley in its best bets to win the 2023 Zurich Classic. That bet hit at +4500, and for the entire tournament, McClure’s best bets returned over $1,100. McClure’s best bets also included Jason Day winning outright at the 2023 AT&T Byron Nelson, even though he hadn’t won a PGA Tour event since 2018.

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

Now that the 2023 Memorial Tournament field is set, SportsLine simulated the tournament 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected leaderboard.

Top 2023 Memorial Tournament predictions One major surprise the model is calling for at the Memorial Tournament 2023: Rory McIlroy, who ranks third in the world and is one of the favorites at 12-1, stumbles this week and doesn’t even crack the top 10. He skipped the Charles Schwab Challenge following his seventh-place finish at the PGA Championship. McIlroy was outside the top 45 at the Wells Fargo Championship at the beginning of May after missing the cut at the Masters Tournament. 

He also missed the cut at the Players Championship and did not contend at the WM Phoenix Open or the Genesis Invitational earlier in the season. McIlroy has not been meeting expectations throughout the campaign, but he continues to be priced as one of the favorites on the PGA odds board. The model has McIlroy outside the top 10 this week, making him an overvalued golfer to avoid with 2023 Memorial Tournament bets. 

Another surprise, Tyrrell Hatton, a 35-1 longshot, makes a strong run at the title. Hatton enters this week’s event full of confidence after finishing T-5 or better in two of his last three starts on the PGA Tour. Hatton is also coming off a respectable T-15 performance at the PGA Championship.

The fact that Hatton has only won once on the PGA Tour is stunning, considering how well he’s played since his last appearance at the Memorial Tournament in 2019. This season, he ranks third in strokes gained: total (2.058), 10th in strokes gained: approach to green (0.721) and 17th in strokes gained: putting (0.513). Between his recent form and the consistency he’s shown in other areas of his game, he should be poised to challenge the top of the leaderboard this weekend. See who else to pick here.

How to make 2023 Memorial Tournament picksThe model is also targeting two other golfers with Memorial Tournament 2023 odds of 35-1 or longer who will make surprising runs, and McClure is targeting a huge triple-digit longshot in his best bets to win. Anyone who backs these longshots could hit it big. You can only see the model’s Memorial Tournament picks here.
