2023 Puerto Rico Open odds, tips, field: Surprising PGA predictions from a golf model that’s hit 8 majors

The 2023 Puerto Rico Open will take a backseat to the Arnold Palmer Invitational this week, but there’s still plenty of value on the PGA odds board. Some of the PGA Tour’s top golfers started their careers with victories in Puerto Rico, including Tony Finau in 2016 and Viktor Hovland in 2019. Many lower-ranked golfers will compete this week at the Puerto Rico Open 2023 Grand Field Country Club Reservations. Nate Lashley and Ben Martin are 16-1 co-favorites in the latest 2023 Puerto Rico Open odds on the PGA odds board.

Some of the other contenders for the 2023 Puerto Rico Open include Akshay Bhatia (22-1), Scott Piercy (25-1) and Andrew Novak (25-1). With so many long shots near the top of the board, SportsLine’s model can help you find a big winner in your Puerto Rico 2023 bets. Before you secure a selection for the 2023 Puerto Rico Open, be sure to check out the golf predictions and predicted rankings from SportsLine’s trusted computer model.

SportsLine’s proprietary model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been red hot since the PGA Tour resumed in June 2020. In fact, the model has gained over $8,300 on its best bets since the reboot, nailing tournament after tournament.

McClure’s model predicted that Jon Rahm would finish at the top of the leaderboard at the 2023 Sentry Tournament of Champions, The American Express and Genesis Invitational. The model also included JT Poston in his best bets to win the 2022 John Deere Classic. That bet reached +5500, and for the entire tournament, McClure’s best bets brought in nearly $1,100. At the 2022 Masters, McClure’s model was centered around Scottie Scheffler’s first major championship win of his career heading into the weekend.

Additionally, among McClure’s best bets was Collin Morikawa’s overall win at the 2021 Open Championship, despite being listed as a massive 40-1 long shot. The model was also featured throughout Jon Rahm’s (10-1) first major championship win of his career at the 2021 US Open. Rahm was two strokes away from the lead going into the weekend, but the model still predicted him as the winner.

The same model also nailed a whopping eight majors over the weekend. Everyone who has followed it has seen massive returns.

Now that the 2023 Puerto Rico Open field is closed, SportsLine has simulated the tournament 10,000 times and the results were surprising. Now go to SportsLine to see the projected leaderboard.

Top predictions for the Puerto Rico Open 2023

One big surprise awaiting the model at the 2023 Puerto Rico Open: Scott Piercy, a four-time PGA Tour winner and one of the top favorites, stumbles this week, barely cracking the top 10. He’s struggled throughout 2022 – 23 season and only made the cut six times in 13 events. Piercy finished T-50 at the Genesis Invitational in his last start and failed to finish in the top 30 in seven straight tournaments.

He also retired from the WM Phoenix Open in early February, making him a golfer to stay away from now. The 44-year-old has played in most major events on the PGA Tour, so this week’s Puerto Rico Open is unlikely to capture his full attention. He’s considered one of the favorites to win the tournament, but SportsLine’s model hardly puts him in the top 10.

Another surprise: Dylan Wu, a 35-1 longshot, makes a strong run to the title. He has a much better chance of winning everything than his odds suggest, so he’s a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. Wu played collegiate golf for Northwestern and won three singles tournaments in four years. After his college career, he turned pro and since then has mainly played on the Korn Ferry Tour.

Wu recorded his first Korn Ferry Tour win of 2021 at the Price Cutter Charity Championship and also carded a T-31 at the 2021 US Open. The 26-year-old is in a similar situation to some of that tournament’s previous winners and needs a breakthrough on the PGA Tour to jumpstart his career. The SportsLine model thinks this is the perfect chance for him to claim his first PGA Tour win against a mediocre field. See who else you can pick here.
