2023 WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play Tips, Predictions, Odds, Field: Golf Insider Fading Rory McIlroy

The PGA Tour heads to the Lone Star State this week for the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play 2023, the 24th and final edition of the popular PGA Tour event. The PGA Tour’s evolving schedule has left no room for WGC match play, although it may return in some form in the years to come. Scottie Scheffler defeated Kevin Kisner 4, 3 last year to win the title and he is aiming to defend his second title of the season. Scheffler took over world No. 1 with his Players Championship win two weeks ago. As usual, Jon Rahm and Rory McIlroy will battle for him, along with 61 other top PGA Tour players making up the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play 2023 field.

Scheffler (7-1), Rahm (10-1) and McIlroy (12-1) are the favorites in the latest 2023 WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play odds from Caesars Sportsbook. Patrick Cantlay (15-1), Max Homa (16-1) and Collin Morikawa (19-1) are also favorites in the WGC-Dell Technologies matchplay field, followed by Jordan Spieth (20-1), Viktor Hovland (22- 1) and Xander Schauffele (22-1). Before hitting any WGC-Dell Technologies matchplay tips for 2023, be sure to check out PGA Tour predictions and best bets from SportsLine golf insider Patrick McDonald.

After spending time at FanSided and NBC Sports EDGE, McDonald joined CBS Sports in Spring 2022 as a golf writer. McDonald now covers the sport from a broader perspective and still likes to dive into the PGA Tour betting pools on a weekly basis. McDonald is taking a measured approach to their overall picks and having a profitable 2022-23 season. The expert is up nearly 14 units this season, making nearly $1,700 in profit for $100 bettors. He’s having a strong season in both outright picks and head-to-head matchups.

McDonald won the Farmers Insurance Open, backing Homa (25-1) as his top pick. The pundit also narrowly missed a massive 130-1 finish at the Sony Open as Hayden Buckley finished second. At the Houston Open, he scored another 25-1 shot to give Tony Finau the win. The pundit ended the 2021-22 season up 42 units on his outrights, including a monster 250-1 payout on Hudson Swafford at The American Express. Anyone who follows McDonald’s advice has made money.

Now, McDonald’s studied the 2023 WGC-Dell Technologies matchplay field and determined its best bets, top sleepers and favorites to avoid. You can now head over to SportsLine to see all of McDonald’s PGA picks and analysis.

Top 2023 WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play Expert Picks

In a stunning prediction, McDonald shuns McIlroy, dwarfing the youngest world No. 1 despite his status as a favourite. The combination of McIlroy’s breaking in a new driver and the likelihood of him getting distracted by the upcoming Masters gives McDonald pause. And then there’s his most recent performance – a top 25 finish in his last four appearances. The Northern Irishman struggles to keep the ball in play (186th in shot accuracy) and can’t make putts (173rd in shots won putting). McIlroy is one of the best on tour but the pundit doesn’t expect this to be his week.

At the same time, Scheffler has been flashing on courses for more than a year and has had nothing but success in Austin. The 26-year-old is 94 under par in his last six tournaments. Now he’s heading to a course where he’s recorded a win and a second in two attempts. Matchplay requires a stable demeanor and balanced play, and Scheffler has proven he has both. He leads the tour on the greens in regulatory percentage and is second in scoring average and total strokes won. Scheffler defended his Phoenix title last month and will intend to do the same here.
