The 2022 British Open tees off next week at The Old Course at St. Andrews, and 14 of the top 15 players in the world will be getting one final tuneup in this week when the 2022 Scottish Open tees off at The Renaissance Club in North Berwick, Scotland on Thursday. Weather could be a factor this week with wind and rain on the Scottish Open weather forecast. World No. 3 Jon Rahm is listed as the 11-1 betting favorite in the latest Scottish Open odds from Caesars Sportsbook. Other top contenders at the Genesis Scottish Open include Justin Thomas (12-1), Scottie Scheffler (12-1), Xander Schauffele (18-1), Matt Fitzpatrick (18-1), and Patrick Cantlay (22-1).

Which players should you target when building your Scottish Open prop bet betting strategy? And which sleepers should you target for a potentially huge payday? Before locking in any Genesis Scottish Open 2022 picks of your own, be sure to check out the PGA predictions and betting advice from SportsLine golf expert Mike McClure.

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 $10,600 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.

McClure's model included J.T. Poston in its best bets to win the 2022 John Deere Classic. That bet hit at +5500, and for the entire tournament, McClure's best bets returned almost $1,100. At the 2022 Masters, McClure's model was all over Scottie Scheffler's first career major championship victory heading into the weekend. 

In addition, McClure's best bets included Collin Morikawa winning outright at the 2021 Open Championship, even though he was listed as a massive 40-1 long shot. The model was also all over Jon Rahm's (10-1) first career major championship victory at the 2021 U.S. Open. Rahm was two strokes off the lead heading into the weekend, but the model still projected him as the winner. 

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

Now, McClure has set his sights on the 2022 Genesis Scottish Open field and just revealed his top PGA prop bets. You can head to SportsLine now to see all of McClure's 2022 Scottish Open prop picks, sleepers, head-to-head matchups, best bets, and his top one and done pick.

2022 Scottish Open prop bets

One of McClure's favorite Scottish Open prop bets is Will Zalatoris finishing inside the top 20 of the final leaderboard at +145 odds. Zalatoris has played outstanding golf at times in 2022, with his best performances coming at the first three majors on the PGA schedule. The former Wake Forest standout finished in second place at both the U.S. Open and PGA Championship and sixth place at the Masters, and also notched a second place finish at the Farmers Insurance Open.

Zalatoris plays his best golf against top competition, and ranks first on the PGA Tour in strokes gained on approach (1.035), second in strokes gained tee to green (1.826), seventh in total strokes gained (1.781), and 11th in strokes gained off the tee (0.633). All said, McClure is feeling highly confident in the 25-year-old's chances at making a strong run at winning this week at The Renaissance Club.

2022 Scottish Open head-to-head matchup picks

One of McClure's favorite bets this week is Jon Rahm over U.S. Open champion Matt Fitzpatrick in head-to-head golf betting at -125 odds. Rahm captured his first career major last year at the 2021 U.S. Open, and will be looking to add another to his resume next week at the British Open. McClure is expecting Rahm, the No. 2 player in the world, to be dialed in for his final tune up before The Open Championship next week.

The 27-year-old ranks first on the PGA Tour in strokes gained off the tee (1.106), fifth in strokes gained tee to green (1.602), and sixth in total strokes gained (1.805), and he's well-versed in winning tournaments in Europe.
