*Note that not all bookmakers are offering odds on LIV Golf and some states are limiting options too. BetRivers, bet365, and Caesars Sportsbook have priced it up and these states are permitting wagers at DraftKings: Arizona, Connecticut, Wyoming, Oregon, and Illinois. There are many good golf betting sites that are available across the US. 

LIV London Picks and Predictions

LIV Golf London predictions

LIV London Intro

It’s nearly one month since the merger between the PGA Tour and Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund, which owns LIV Golf, and we still don’t know what the future holds.

But we do know that this week’s LIV London event sees the rebel circuit head back to the Centurion Club north of London which is where it first started last June.

The week also represents the final opportunity for the players to warm up for the final major championship of the year - the Open - which takes place in two weeks' time.

Last year the leaderboard was dominated by South Africans - not only the winner, but the runner-up and five of the top 10 finishers were from that nation.

Will we see a repeat this week?

Centurion Club Course Notes

  • Centurion Club is a par 70 that plays to a yardage of 7,100
  • It was designed by Simon Gidman
  • It’s a modern course with some holes played in the trees but most in the open
  • There are many water hazards on the property
  • Scoring was far from easy in the first LIV event

Favorites to Win the LIV London

Brooks Koepka (+800)

The PGA Championship winner was not an original member of LIV so this will be his first visit to Centurion but he is undoubtedly in good form. Since and including his win at LIV Orlando in the first week of April he has played nine times, his worst finish was 17th in the U.S. Open and two of his six top-five finishes have been wins.

Cameron Smith (+1000)

The Aussie continues to hunt for a first win of 2023 but since a poor effort at the Masters in April he has, at least, been very consistent. Seven starts since then have witnessed six top-10 finishes with last week’s 12th at Valderrama the exception. Like Koepka, he was a late starter at LIV so this week will be his Centurion debut.

Dustin Johnson (+1000)

After winning the LIV Tulsa event out of nowhere in May the former World No. 1 revealed that he had been suffering from a back injury. After that victory his form dropped off again but he is trending with finishes that read: 55th-23rd-10th-8th. He did play in the inaugural event, carding rounds of 69-70-70 to finish eighth. 

State of Grace

In the first LIV London event Branden Grace thrashed a brilliant 65 to finish third and within weeks he was collecting victory in the Portland event. 

This year he has finished third in Mayakoba, second in Tulsa, and second again in DC - the latter two results as recently as May.

He was also third in Open Final Qualifying earlier this week.

Placing five times in 15 LIV starts and competing strongly when he does so is impressive stuff and his price doesn’t seem to reflect his quality.

He’s a two-time winner on the PGA Tour and a nine-time winner on the DP World Tour - he likes lifting trophies and this week is a good opportunity.

Back him each way at +2500 with bet365 paying out five places. Read our golf betting guide to learn everything you need to know on how to bet on golf. 

Schwartzel Might be Revived

After claiming victory in the first LIV event 13 months ago South Africa’s Charl Schwartzel has not had a great time of it.

In fact, in 21 starts he has added only four top 10 finishes and not one top five.

Moreover, he hasn’t finished in the top 25 in his last four starts.

Until the start of this week, that is.

Because in carding 72-70 to finish third in Open Final Qualifying alongside Grace he not only claimed a spot in the Open, he also gave himself a big boost of confidence ahead of his defense.

He’s the sort of golfer who repeats good form at courses he likes and his price is big this week.

Take him each way at +12500 with Caesars Sportsbook offering five places.

Mexican Hot

Since getting 2023 off to a great start with victory in the Saudi International, it has not been a good year for the Mexican Abraham Ancer.

In 11 starts since then he has no top 10s and just two top 20s.

In contrast, over the same period, his compatriot Carlos Ortiz has played 10 times, logging seven top 20s (four of them top 10).

His better golf is also revealed in their 2023 LIV head-to-head results: Oritz leads 6-2.

According to bet365, this is a shootout with the pair at the same price in the Top Mexican market. 

Take Oritz at -120 with bet365.
