2023 U.S. Open odds, golf picks: Jon Rahm, Scottie Scheffler predictions by top model that called the Masters

PGA Pro Michael Block’s fairytale story from the PGA Championship will not continue at the 2023 U.S. Open, as he missed out on a qualifying place by two shots. Block finished 15th at Oak Hill in May, including a hole-in-one during the final round. There are still plenty of intriguing storylines like Brooks Koepka’s quest to win back-to-back major championships. Koepka is 9-1 in the 2023 U.S. Open odds at Caesars Sportsbook, sitting behind Scottie Scheffler (7-1) and Jon Rahm (8-1) atop the PGA odds board. Matt Fitzpatrick won this tournament last year, but he is a 25-1 longshot to defend his title in the 203 U.S. Open field. Should you include Fitzpatrick in your 2023 U.S. Open bets?

Before locking in your 2023 U.S. Open picks or entering any PGA DFS tournaments on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel, 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 more than $8,300 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 (17-1) 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 U.S. Open is approaching, SportsLine simulated the tournament 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected 2023 U.S. Open leaderboard.

2023 U.S. Open predictions for Max Homa, Scottie Scheffler, Jon Rahm  

One shocker the model is calling for at the U.S. Open 2023: Max Homa, a six-time PGA Tour winner and one of the top favorites, stumbles and barely cracks the top 15. Homa is undeniably one of the most gifted putters on the PGA Tour, ranking third in putting average (1.690), fifth in strokes gained putting (0.741) and sixth in putts per round (27.89).

However, Homa has struggled on the tee box this season, ranking 71st in strokes gained off the tee (0.138) and 92nd in driving accuracy (59.61%). Homa’s inconsistency off the tee is a major reason why he enters the 2023 U.S. Open ranked 105th in greens in regulation percentage (65.12%). In addition, the 32-year-old has finished 43rd or worse in each of his last four starts at a major, which includes a 47th-place showing at the U.S. Open in 2022. He’s not a strong pick to win it all and there are far better values in the 2023 U.S. Open field, according to the model. See who else to fade here

The model has also locked in its projection for Scottie Scheffler, the No. 1-ranked player in the world. Scheffler has put together another remarkable season thus far, making the cut in all 15 tournaments he has played. Scheffler has 14 top-25s and 11 top-10s, winning the WM Phoenix Open and the Players Championship.

Scheffler posted three consecutive top-five finishes to close the month of May, doing so at the AT&T Byron Nelson, PGA Championship and Charles Schwab Challenge. The world’s top-ranked golfer leads the PGA Tour in total strokes gained and greens in regulation. However, his short golf odds could steer bettors in other directions with their 2023 U.S. Open bets. See where every golfer finishes here.

On the other hand, the model has examined Jon Rahm’s chances to win his second major championship of the season. Rahm has racked up 11 career victories on the PGA Tour and been strong this season, securing four wins and eight top-10 finishes.

He’s also fared well at the U.S. Open in recent years. In fact, Rahm finished on top of the leaderboard in 2021 and was 12th or better in three of his last four starts at the U.S. Open. The Spaniard will enter Los Angeles Country Club ranked first in birdie average (5.02), second in scoring average (68.27) and third in greens in regulation percentage (72.35%). However, Rahm ranks 59th in strokes gained around-the-green (0.155) and 69th in driving accuracy (60.95%). See the full U.S. Open projections from the model here.
