Rahm Picked in Mexico Open Betting Preview

The PGA Tour Heads to Vidanta Vallarta

Jon Rahm is all the rage with our Mexico Open betting preview, which is understandable given his current form.

The Spaniard has already won four times in 2023, including the Masters in April. Therefore, the PGA odds of +260 are warranted.

That’s about as short as it gets in golf betting markets, so the pressure is on the world number one.

Not Seen Since Tiger

We haven’t seen odds of +260 since Tiger Woods was in his heyday, so there is plenty of confidence around Rahm.

The 28-year-old is in stellar form, having won the Masters by four strokes before turning up and playing the RBC Heritage despite not really wanting to.

“It did cross my mind, but I made a commitment earlier in the year, and I want to honor that commitment,” Rahm said.

“I also, talking to [my wife], I put myself in the shoes of not only the spectators but the kids as well. If I was one of the kids, I would want to see the recent Masters champion play good or bad, just want to be there.”

He finished T15 at the Heritage, which was a terrific performance considering, so there’s little doubt about who the best golfer in the world is.

He’s also the defending Mexico Open champion, so we’re not lacking in reasons why he’s at the top of our Mexico Open betting preview.
Taking +260 is tough for a 72-hole golf tournament, but it’s tough to not have Rahm on your ticket.

Finau in Fine Form

There is plenty of talk about the form of Rahm, but Tony Finau has been playing stellar golf as well.

The 33-year-old is a five-time PGA Tour winner, including the 2022 3M Open, Rocket Mortgage Classic, and Houston Open.

Although yet to win this year, he has been all around the mark. He finished T19 at The Players, T26 at the Masters, and T9 at the Farmers Insurance Open.

He is the only other player listed at single-figure odds in our Mexico Open betting preview, so he’s the logical pick to beat Rahm.

Given his relaxed nature, playing in Mexico is ideal for Finau, so his +800 odds are worth snapping up.

Winning Pair Going Solo

Davis Riley and Nick Hardy won the Zurich Classic of New Orleans last week, but they have yet to win a solo PGA Tour tournament.

That could all change this week and the latest golf betting news suggests they’re confident of a winning effort.

“It was nerve-wracking, honestly,” Riley said. “The first win is always tough.

“You’re just rooting for each other as hard as you can to hit a good shot. Luckily we were able to do that … I was pretty nervous coming down the stretch.”

Riley is the better golfer according to the odds. He’s a +3000 chance at the sportsbook, which is on the sixth line of betting. There is growing confidence of Riley winning on the PGA Tour as a solo player, so he’s worth backing.

Hardy isn’t a well-known golfer, but he features in our Mexico Open betting preview based on his effort last week. He came up with some quality shots at the right time, and the $1.2 million in his bank will make him play freely.

Hardy is a +6000 chance with bookmakers, so bettors get generous odds. He is a value pick and he could make an early charge on Thursday.
