2023 Zurich Classic of New Orleans Betting Analysis

On the whole, Golf is the most individualistic of sports.  However, there is an exception this week on the PGA TOUR.  To illuminate, the world’s best will pair up for a chance to win the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.  In 2017 the Zurich Classic pivoted to becoming the lone team event on the PGA TOUR schedule.  Specifically, it boasted 80 duos competing in Four-ball (best ball) and Foursomes (alternate-shot) formats.  The Golf Betting Lines winners receive 400 FedExCup points each.

2023 Zurich Classic CashBet Odds Overview

First, Presidents Cup teammates and close friends Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele return to defend their title from 2022.  This dynamic duo won in record-setting fashion.  While plenty of the world’s best, with some new teams in there, will try to take the best Sportsbook online title this year.

Most important of all, gamblers should follow through the first two days at TPC Louisiana on how the scoring works.  Each two-man team will start by playing Four-ball (best ball) on Thursday, often leading to the lowest scores of the week.  Next, the teams will revert to Foursomes (alternate shot) for Friday’s second round.  After the cut is made, only 33 teams and ties find the weekend; they will play Four-ball again.  And then the Sunday drama unfolds with Foursomes.

To summarize, TPC Louisiana, par 72, 7,425 yards.  Steve Elkington and Kelly Gibson served as design consultants for this Pete Dye design.  The course stretches over 250 acres of wetlands and features 100 bunkers.  Located just 15 minutes from downtown New Orleans, the course features water hazards prominently.  But it’s one of the TOUR’s most scoreable layouts. 

2023 Zurich Classic Top Contenders

Last year, Cantlay and Schauffele shot an event-record 29 under over four rounds.  Now they are back to defend

Meanwhile, Max Homa and fellow Californian Collin Morikawa are pairing up for the first time.  Homa finished tied for 21st last year.  While Morikawa, paired with Viktor Hovland, finished tied for 29th

Namely, Billy Horschel and Sam Burns, last year’s Golf Betting odds runners-up, are back in action.

Fresh off his ninth-place finish at the Masters, Sahith Theegala will tee it up alongside Justin Suh.  In turn, Suh stands No. 72 on the FedExCup standings as a first-year TOUR member.

Although the University of Georgia topped TCU in the NCAA college football national championship, there’s hopefully no bad blood between the team of Harris English and Tom Hoge.  To show they are alums of both Georgia and TCU, respectively.

Additionally, notable teams include Presidents Cup stars Si Woo Kim and Tom Kim.  UNLV alums Kurt Kitayama and Taylor Montgomery will team up.

And then there are some Ryder Cup connections in Zach Johnson with captain’s assistant Steve Stricker.  Along with Luke Donald with Edoardo Molinari, who is in on a sponsor exemption

To summarize, Eight of the top 20 in the world are teeing it up at TPC Louisiana.  There are six former champs with the Golf Betting Lines covering both the team and individual formats.

Additionally, plenty of long-time partners are looking for success at TPC Louisiana.  Billy Horschel and Sam Burns, who finished second last season and fourth the year prior, are trending.

But two squads are playing together for the sixth consecutive time.  Correlate that the only teams together for every edition of the Zurich Classic are Charley Hoffman and Nick Watney (who won in 2007 as an individual).  And then Kevin Tway and Kelly Kraft are back together again.  Both of the teams’ best finishes came in 2017.  To illustrate, Tway and Kraft finished third, and Hoffman and Watney finished fifth.
