Scottish Open 2024 picks, predictions, odds, course: Golf expert doesn’t want Tommy Fleetwood at The Renaissance Club



Renaissance Club in North Berwick, Scotland, will host the Genesis Scottish Open for the sixth time when play begins on Thursday at the 2024 Scottish Open. Opened in 2007 by an American group, Renaissance Club was designed by renowned architect Tom Doak and carved out of 300 acres of pine forest. The 7,237-yard, par 70 course will host the Scottish Open through 2026.

This week, world No. 2 Rory McIlroy, who won the Scottish Open last year, is the +650 favorite for the 2024 Scottish Open, just ahead of reigning PGA champion Xander Schauffele (+750). Collin Morikawa (+1200), Ludvig Aberg (+1400), Viktor Hovland (+2000) and Tommy Fleetwood (+2000) complete the top six picks for the 2024 Scottish Open. Before locking in any picks for the 2024 Scottish Open, make sure you See PGA Tour predictions and best bets from golf and fantasy betting expert Sia Nejad.

Nejad specializes in golf betting and DFS, among other sports. He has had incredible success in first-round and first-round lead markets and head-to-head matchups. He has also been solid with his head-to-head matchups since last year’s Charles Schwab Challenge, going 51-35-5 and returning 12.93 units over that time. That’s a profit of $1,293 for $100 bettors since May 2023.

Nejad also took down Wyndham Clark, a 75-1 underdog, as the outright winner at last year’s Wells Fargo Championship. In 2023, SportsLine launched “The Early Wedge,” and in the first three months of the program, he has two first-round leads and three outright wins. Last week, Nejad added Davis Thompson to his outright list and was +2200 on Thompson to win.

Nejad has now turned his attention to the 2024 Scottish Open, locking in the best bets, the most overlooked players and the favourites to avoid. See who they are at SportsLine.

Scottish Open 2024 Expert Picks

One surprise: Nejad is completely overshadowing Tommy Fleetwood, despite being ranked No. 11 in the world. Fleetwood, who has won more than $23.9 million in his career, finished 15th at the Travelers Championship three weeks ago. He hasn’t finished in the top 10 since tying for third at the Masters in April.

Fleetwood is also still looking for his first career PGA Tour win. Fleetwood, who played his first PGA Tour event in 2013, has not won in 140 PGA Tour starts. “He’s a popular pick for a lot of people, but I don’t think he’s going to get close in a tournament like this, so I’d avoid him,” Nejad told SportsLine.

Another curveball: Nejad is betting on Swedish sensation Ludvig Aberg. Ranked No. 4 in the world, Aberg enters the Scottish Open on a roll. In his last eight tournaments, he has six top-15s and four top-10s. In his previous two starts, he led through 36 holes at the US Open before finishing 12th. He is listed at +1400 in the 2024 Scottish Open odds, behind only McIlroy (+650), Schauffele (+750) and Morikawa (+1200).

Aberg is one of the best hitters on the PGA Tour. He ranks third this season in total putts, which combine distance and accuracy. “I like his ability to develop if his short game shines, and I like the fact that he took the last two weeks off to get ready to go overseas and rest his knee, which has been a bit of an issue this year,” Nejad said.
