Scottish Open Betting Picks: Spieth Loves It Here

Scottish Open Predictions

The PGA Tour is over to Europe this week as the Scottish Open will be played at The Renaissance Club. As this event precedes St. Andrews’ major, it is not surprising that so many top players have decided to participate. Here you will find the latest betting picks and analysis from our top golf experts.


Key Stat: Spieth finished fourth and ninth in two of the last three starts in Scotland

Tip Reasoning

  • The three-time major winner has clearly performed on links courses
  • Spieth is ranking 20th SG: Tee To Green this term
  • He seemed to like slower greens in Scotland


As mentioned earlier, we have 14 of the world’s top 15 playing at the Renaissance Club this week. The main pick for this tournament is Jordan Spieth, who has done very well in recent times, just before majors. Earlier in the year, for instance, he won the RBC Heritage and last season, he landed a title just a week before the US Masters.

Although he hasn’t played at this course earlier, he finished fourth and ninth in two of the last three starts in Scotland, when playing at St Andrew’s and Carnoustie. The three-time major winner has clearly performed on links courses, and even if this is not a true link, he should like the challenge here, considering that he has done well by or near the coast. He is ranking 20th SG: Tee To Green this term so far and seemed to like slower greens in Scotland before. At this generous price, he surely looks like an excellent pick for this week’s event.

Tip Reasoning

Key Stat: Mitchell has had a run of four top 12s in five appearances on the PGA Tour events played in January and February

  • Mitchell has finished 7th in the Canadian Open
  • He was the highest-finishing American in last year’s Scottish Open
  • Mitchell has now reached position 54 in the world rankings (best-career position)

Our second pick for this week is Keith Mitchell. After ending tied 7th in the Canadian Open, he also managed to land a place for next week’s tournament. Mitchell has been very consistent recently, finishing tied sixth in the Travelers Championship and 18th at the Memorial. In addition, he has had a run of four top 12s in five appearances on the PGA Tour events played in January and February. As a result, Mitchell has now reached position 54 in the world rankings and will be very motivated to break into the top 50, which will bring him lots of benefits. He loves to play in Scotland, as he was the highest-finishing American in last year’s Scottish Open, and I feel that with the progress shown recently, he will be able to be in contention this week.
