The LIV Golf circuit tees it up for the first time in six weeks as they head to Sugar Grove, Illinois, on the west side of Chicago's suburbs, for this week's tournament. Last year, Cameron Smith won the inaugural LIV Golf Chicago in only his second tournament on the tour, beating Peter Uihlein and Dustin Johnson by three shots. This par-72 layout plays long at 7,401 yards, which may even be more difficult if the forecast of some rain comes to fruition this weekend. The difficult course features blind tee shots on more than half the holes, with hills and a number of water features in play.
Smith, the defending champion, is the betting favorite at +750, with Bryson DeChambeau +1100, Dustin Johnson and Patrick Reed +1400, Mito Pereira and Talor Gooch at +1600, as well as Brooks Koepka, and Joaquin Niemann at +1800.
Before making any LIV golf picks, be sure to see what golf handicapper Eric Cohen has to say.
Cohen is an avid golf bettor who correctly predicted the pre-tournament outright winner of the 2023 Rocket Mortgage Classic (Rickie Fowler +1400), 2023 PGA Championship (Brooks Koepka +2000), 2023 Honda Classic (Chris Kirk +3500), 2022 Open Championship (Cameron Smith +2200), 2022 U.S. Open (Matt Fitzpatrick +2500), and 2022 Phoenix Open (Scottie Scheffler's first career victory at +2800). He is a frequent contributor to SportsLine's YouTube "Early Edge" programming and is a guest on "The Early Wedge" SportsLine YouTube golf show hosted by Jonathan Coachman.
Now, Cohen has studied the 2023 LIV Golf Chicago field and locked in his best bets, top sleepers and favorites to avoid.
We can tell you that Cohen is fading three time 2023 winner Talor Gooch, who is among the top betting choices at +1600 odds. "With only one top-10 finish in a tournament he hasn't won this year, I'm not overly encouraged with the all-or-nothing results. Gooch was 35th here last year so I'm not overly encouraged for a bounce back performance."
Cohen also has broken down the 2023 LIV Golf Chicago event and reveals why he's backing two Americans to win, both at appealing prices! You ABSOLUTELY need to see who they are before locking in any picks of your own.
