Golf Betting Preview and Picks: 2023 The Genesis Invitational

Following the first elevated event at the Phoenix Open, and leading favorite winner in Scottie Scheffler for the second straight year in Phoenix, the PGA Tour moves to Riviera CC for another elevated $20 million tournament and the final event of the West Coast Swing for 2023 The Genesis Invitational. We’ve had success in this event including match-up winners the past two years including on a big longshot who fit the profile for success.

Delayed posting here this week as I’ve had long travel following more Super Bowl winners. But I did provide a 2023 The Genesis Invitational betting preview in Forbes on Monday, and also dark horse picks and more coverage for FanDuel and The Duel Sports.

2023 The Genesis Invitational Odds

2023 The Genesis Invitational

My golf coverage and research includes use and references from sites at Golf Stats along with Fantasy National and Data Golf. I gain added information and betting news with fantasy golf insight from FanShare Sports and other sites and golf analysts. That includes top golf insider Justin Ray Golf, who contributes to PGA Tour (dot com) and The Athletic with insightful stats. The site Golf Stats has also has player performance charts and a player competitor tool plus added stats and previews.

I put it all together and add my intuitive feel for the game and betting acumen to provide golf picks and chip-in added insight with information you can bet on.

More than a decade ago I was a lead golf handicapper and analyst on a popular sports handicapping radio show out of Las Vegas whose picks were provided to a betting syndicate. I continue my golf coverage in a different format, and provide my experience and intuitive feel for the game and betting acumen to provide golf picks and chip-in added insight with information you can bet on.

This season, I’ll add more Round 1 matchup bets. I will limit tournament matchups posted on these pages, but have more available to those bettors that chip-in and wish to correspond with me directly. You can email me at [email protected] for more picks and information you can bet on. Having been a proven performer for decades, I’ve posted picks the last two years on Vegas Sports Zone and tournament match-ups were 41-27.

FairwayJay’s 2022 PGA Tour tournament match-up picks finished 20-12 and concluded with the TOUR Championship.

FairwayJay’s 2021 tournament match-ups finished 21-15 following a 17-5 start January through May.
