The PGA Tour heads to Riviera Country Club in California for the 2024 Genesis Invitational this week, marking the third signature event of the season. The first tee times comes at 10:20 a.m. ET on Thursday. Tournament host Tiger Woods is set to make his season debut, which will be his first official event since the Masters last April. Scottie Scheffler is the 7-1 favorite in the 2024 Genesis Invitational odds, sitting ahead of Rory McIlroy (17-2). Other Genesis Invitational contenders include Viktor Hovland (12-1), Xander Schauffele (14-1), Max Homa (14-1) and Collin Morikawa (20-1). This tournament began as the Los Angeles Open in 1926.
We simulated the Genesis Invitational 2024 10,000 times, and there are some MAJOR surprises. Join SportsLine here to see the model's shocking projected leaderboard.
Our proprietary model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been red-hot since the PGA Tour resumed in June of 2020. In fact, the model is up more than $9,000 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.
McClure's model predicted Jon Rahm would finish on top of the leaderboard at the 2023 Sentry Tournament of Champions and The American Express. At the 2023 Masters, the model was all over Rahm's second career major victory heading into the weekend. Rahm was two strokes off the lead heading into the third round, but the model still projected him as the winner. It was the second straight Masters win for the model, which also nailed Scottie Scheffler winning in 2022.
In addition, the model included Nick Taylor in its best bets to win the 2023 RBC Canadian Open. That bet hit at +7000, and for the entire tournament, McClure's best bets returned nearly $1,900. McClure's best bets also included Jason Day (17-1) winning outright at the 2023 AT&T Byron Nelson and Rickie Fowler (14-1) finishing on top of the leaderboard at the 2023 Rocket Mortgage Classic.
This same model has also nailed a whopping 10 majors entering the weekend! Anyone who has followed it has seen MASSIVE returns! Join SportsLine now to see the model's shocking Genesis Invitational picks from 10,000 simulations!
Riviera Country Club, which will host the 2028 Summer Olympics and the 2031 U.S. Open, is a 7,322-yard par-71 designed by George Thomas in 1927. It has the fourth-largest greens on the PGA Tour and will be the second largest so far this season. Max Homa (2021) and Adam Scott (2020) are the only past winners who are in the field this week. Scheffler is making his sixth start at this tournament and has finished inside the top 20 in each of the last three years, but his best finish was a T7 in 2022.
One major surprise the model is calling for at the Genesis Invitational 2024: Homa, who won this event in 2021 and is tied for fourth in the odds this week, struggles and barely cracks the top 10! Another surprise: Ludvig Aberg, a 20-1 longshot, makes a strong run at the title. He has a much better chance to win it all than his odds imply, so he's a target for anyone looking for a huge payday.
Also, the model is targeting THREE other golfers with odds of 20-1 or longer who will make surprising runs at the title! Anyone who backs these golfers could hit it BIG. You ABSOLUTELY need to see who they are before locking in any picks!
So who wins the Genesis Invitational 2024, and which HUGE longshots make a serious run at the title? ... Join SportsLine right now to see who you can bank on to win, and see which longshots make a run at the title, all from the model that's nailed 10 majors, including last year's Masters and Open Championship!
