First played almost 100 years ago in 1926, the Genesis Invitational is among the oldest golf tournaments in the world and has previously been known as the Northern Trust Open and Nissan Open for sponsorship purposes. This year’s event, held at Riviera Golf in Los Angeles, is the second $20 million tournament in the PGA Tour season and has attracted a deep field consisting of nine of the top 10 golfers in the Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR) – only LIV Golf’s Cameron Smith is absent. Tiger Woods is also participating at the Genesis, marking his first start in a non-major since October 2020. He’s +14000 to win.

The Genesis Invitational Open Betting Predictions and Favorites Odds | PGA Tour Lines
Rahm, who is third in the OWGR, is having the best season of his career, and it’s not even close. He’s in contention every week and won The American Express and Tournament of Champions in January. He finished third at last week’s Waste Management Phoenix Open at 14-under. Overall, he has four victories in his last nine worldwide starts.
Rahm is a great pick to win this week, especially considering his improved play around the green, where he ranks 13th on the PGA Tour in strokes gained. Riviera has a lot of narrow fairways, but that shouldn’t be an issue for Rahm as his driving distance and accuracy is among the best on the Tour.
Rory McIlroy’s career resurgence as the face of the PGA Tour – both through his play and comments in regard to LIV – has continued into the 2023 season. The Northern Irishman may have had a forgettable week in Phoenix – he finished T32 at 1-under – but won the Dubai Desert Classic two weeks prior and began the season with a victory at the CJ Cup.
McIlroy hasn’t had much success at the Genesis in his career. He finished T10 at 10-under last year, but missed the cut in 2021.
Scheffler is hoping to become the first golfer to win back-to-back PGA Tour events since Tony Finau last season. After a breakthrough season last year, Scheffler has firmly established himself as one of the best golfers on the planet with a well-rounded game. He won the Phoenix Open last week by two strokes and has finished T11 or better in six consecutive events.
Longshot of the Week – Adam Hadwin +10000
The launch of LIV Golf created opportunities for lesser-known talents to step up on the PGA Tour. One player who has taken advantage of such opportunities is Canadian Adam Hadwin, who’s paying out +10000 to win this weekend.
Hadwin was in contention during the first three rounds at the Phoenix Open but fell back to T10 after an even-par final round on Sunday. He has two top-20 finishes in his prior three events and finished T26 at last year’s Genesis, proving he can handle the conditions at Riviera. A $5 bet on Hadwin to win pays out $505 – that’s great value.
