Honda Classic 2023 picks, predictions, pitches, odds: Golf insider avoids Aaron Wise at PGA National

A serious challenge is approaching as the PGA Tour begins its rotation in Florida at the 2023 Honda Classic, but most of the world’s best golfers will be absent. The tournament, which begins Thursday at the PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, has a tough spot on the schedule, but it’s an opportunity for overlooked golfers to get through. Six of the 10 previous winners have odds of 80-1 or higher, so this is also an opportunity for savvy bettors. Sungjae Im (18th), Billy Horschel (19th) and Shane Lowry (20th) are the only top 20 golfers on the Honda Classic 2023 course and only eight of the top 50 will tee off. Sepp Straka will return to defend his title, and another player could follow in his footsteps this year as a first-time PGA Tour winner at the PGA National.

Im is the favorite with the score 17-2, followed by Lowry (14-1), in the latest Honda Classic 2023 odds from Caesars Sportsbook. Aaron Wise (22-1), Min Woo Lee (25-1), Chris Kirk (25-1) and Alex Noren (25-1) are also top contenders in the Honda Classic 2023 field. Denny McCarthy and Matt Kuchar is all priced at 28-1, followed by Horschel at 30-1. Before making any selections for the Honda Classic 2023, make sure you See PGA Tour predictions and best bets from SportsLine golf insider Patrick McDonald.

After stints at FanSided and NBC Sports EDGE, McDonald joined CBS Sports as a golf journalist in the spring of 2022. Right now, I’m covering the sport from a wide perspective. Instead, McDonald’s still likes to dip his toes into weekly betting groups on the PGA Tournament. McDonald’s takes a deliberate approach to its outright options and is having a profitable 2022-2023 season. He has raised nearly 25 units this season, which translates to a profit of almost $2,500 for those who bet $100.

McDonald’s nailed it at the Farmers’ Insurance Open, endorsing Max Homa (25-1) as his top pick. The expert also just missed a bold 130-1 score at the Sony Open when Hayden Buckley finished as runner-up. He hit another 25-1 hit at the Houston Open, knocking out Tony Finau to win. The professional ended the 2021-22 season with 42 units of his total, including a 250-1 monster payout to Hudson Swafford at The American Express. Anyone who follows McDonald’s advice benefits.

Now, McDonald’s has researched the Honda Classic 2023 field and has closed its best bets, top oversleepers and favorites to avoid. You can visit SportsLine now to see all McDonald’s PGA picks and analysis.

Top picks of experts Honda Classic 2023

Incredibly, McDonald’s is fading Wise, who “had a less than stellar start to the year.” The 26-year-old is among the favorites but has repeatedly missed cuts and has only finished once in the top 10 this season. That was back in October at the CJ Cup, and his previous top 10 was in June of last year. Rookie of the Year on the 2018 PGA Tour is still a stellar putter (17th in strokes), but the rest of his game was flawed. Wise ranked 167th in approach and 96th tee on the green. He’s also 140th near the hole, so that hitter will have to be excellent.

On the other hand, McDonald’s hopes Im will match, saying the Korean “seems ready to break through again.” The 24-year-old got his first win of the tour at the PGA National in 2020 and his strong all-round play is well suited for the tough run. I’m 18th on the tour in GPA (68.82) and 14th in total strokes. His strokes are all in the top 60, and he’s 46th in rule. Im has twice finished in the top six in his previous three tournaments, and McDonald knows him as “best on the ball”. You can see who he’s supporting this week at SportsLine.

McDonald’s closed his best bets for the Honda Classic 2023, and he’s tagged five long shots that score more than 60-1. One of these golfers is “simply brilliant at teeing off” and almost always puts it on the fairway and hits the ball properly. You can just see who it is and get the rest of the picks at SportsLine.
