The PGA Tour returns to TPC Scottsdale this week, where Scottie Scheffler took the title in 2023.

WM Phoenix Open betting tips and preview

Venue: TPC Scottsdale, Phoenix, Arizona, United States
Date: February 8-11, 2024
Course stats: Par 71, 7,261 yards
Defending champion: Scottie Scheffler (-19)

Scottie Scheffler @ 6/1 with bet365

I know what you might be thinking… Oh you’ve picked the man who is the World No.1, defending champion and the runaway favourite. And that is true. I have!

Scottie Scheffler golf betting tips

But how can you not back Scottie Scheffler? He has finished outside the top 25 on just one occasion in 16 months. He’s won three times including at TPC Scottsdale last year, and has four top-six finishes in his last six events. He is 6/1 and the favourite for a reason. Back Scottie for victory on Sunday!

Min Woo Lee @ 33/1 with bet365

For a while now, Min Woo Lee has been trending towards grabbing a first PGA Tour victory. He won in Macau and Australia prior to Christmas and came home just outside the top 20 at the American Express.

In what will be his first tournament as a newly signed Callaway staff player, can the new equipment take the Australian to a first PGA Tour win? He is 33/1 to do just that come Sunday…

What else is going on in the world of golf this week?

The WM Phoenix Open is not the only event this week, with action also coming in the LIV Golf League and on the DP World Tour.

After a wonderful opening event at Mayakoba, LIV Golf moves to Las Vegas for the first time in its three-year history. Joaquin Niemann won on Sunday, but who will take the title this week?

The DP World Tour’s run in the Middle East will come to an end after five successive weeks. The Commercial Bank Qatar Masters has moved from its traditional October slot to sit in the International Swing this season. Sami Valimaki is the reigning champion after winning at Doha GC just four months ago.

Who are our betting tips for these three big golf events this week? Take a look below…

LIV Golf Las Vegas betting tips and preview

Venue: Las Vegas CC, Las Vegas, Nevada, United States
Date: February 8-10, 2024
Course stats: Par 72, 7,203 yards

Tyrrell Hatton @ 14/1 with bet365

LIV Golf Mayakoba was the debut LIV event for Tyrrell Hatton. He didn’t have the best of starts but shot a great final round on Sunday to help Legion XIII to win the Team Event in their first ever outing.

Tyrrell Hatton golf betting tips

I expect the Englishman to continue that form into this week, and to take the victory at Las Vegas CC. He is currently 14/1 to do so, the fourth favourite.

Dean Burmester @ 22/1 with bet365

The South African challenged for the victory at Mayakoba on Sunday, finishing two shots outside the play-off. That continued the great form that Dean Burmester has shown recently.

He won on home soil in back-to-back weeks on the DP World Tour just prior to Christmas, and I fancy challenge for that maiden LIV Golf title this week as well. He is currently 22/1 for the title in Vegas.

Sebastian Soderberg @ 33/1 to win the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters with bet365

Sweden’s Sebastian Soderberg has been in decent form recently with four top-tens in his last seven events. Two of those have come in the last two weeks, at the Ras Al Khaimah Championship and the Bahrain Championship. The Swede is 33/1 to win this week in Qatar.

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
