2023 Valspar Championship: PGA Tour Predictions, Odds 3/16/23

2023 Valspar Championship
March 16, 2023 7:00 am EDT

This week, the PGA Tour travels to Palm Harbor, Florida for the 2023 Valspar Championship.

Before I dive into my favorite golf bet for this week’s 2023 Valspar Championship let’s take a quick look at the golf course the field will play in Palm Harbor.

The 2023 Valspar Championship will be played at the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort in Palm Harbor, Florida. This track is a par 71 that measures 7,340 yards. Copperhead presents the field with tight fairways that place a premium on accuracy off the tee.

It should be mentioned that many events on the PGA Tour produce a final winning score in the 20 under par range. That certainly won’t be the case this week. Additionally, if the wind speeds get in the high range during this week’s tournament it will likely result in very tough playing conditions for the field.

Let’s shift our focus to my favorite golf bet for the 2023 Valspar Championship.

Here is a golfer to consider placing on your card to finish in the top ten.

Justin Rose +280

The 2013 U.S. Open champion arrives at this week’s Valspar Championship in rather good form. More specifically, Justin Rose has accumulated two top six finishes in his last four tournaments played on the PGA Tour, including a win at the 2023 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am last month.

In relation to this week’s current listed 2023 Valspar Championship field, in the last 24 rounds played on the PGA Tour, Justin Rose ranks eighth in driving accuracy, 13th in GIR (greens in regulation), and second in birdie or better percentage.

I also like the fact that Rose has performed well at this week’s event in the past. Rose finished fifth at the 2018 Valspar Championship.
