Who Will Win The 2021 abrdn Scottish Open? Golf Preview, Picks, Odds and Best Bets

Who Will Win The 2021 abrdn Scottish Open? Golf Preview, Picks, Odds and Best Bets

We're shifting our attention to Europe this week, with the 2021 abrdn Scottish Open at The Renaissance Club, North Berwick, Scotland. As with every big event on the golf schedule, we've got three outright winner picks, ranging from a favorite to some mega value!

We've gone through this week's Scottish Open and found three guys that we like to win this golf tournament, varying from one of the top favorites, who still represents good value, down to some nice value on a couple of stars that look set for big weeks at longer odds! We also show you the best sportsbook promos to play.

After successfully picking Garrick Higgo to win the Palmetto Championship at 40/1 recently, we're confident of keeping the run going!

With crowds returning and almost every big name out there, we're set for an awesome four days of golf ... and betting! As we do each and every tournament, we provide you with our best golf picks for outright winner, as well as some in-play picks throughout.

Let's get into our best bets for this week โฌ‡๏ธ

2021 Scottish Open Best Free Pick ๐Ÿ†

Xander Schauffele +1600 (16/1)
Bet $10, win $160 at PointsBet

I was big on Xander winning this week and then he went and got married and I'm even more keen on the bet!

X is one of the best players in the field and is listed as the second favorite behind Bryson Dechambeau.

Although he hasn't won since the Sentry Tournament of Champions back in 2019, Schauffele always plays his best golf around the majors and with the Open Championship next week, I like him to get a new marriage bounce and win this week!

Xander's consistent play, need for a win soon and the potential for the new marriage bounce, make him our top betting pick for the 2021 Scottish Open. 

Put this bet down with PointsBet, who give new customers $100 in FREE bets when they open an account and deposit just $50. Joining only takes a minute and once you've done so, you'll have $150 in your new account. How good is that!

2021 Scottish Open Value Bet ๐Ÿ’ฐ

Corey Conners +3500 (35/1)
Bet $10, win $350 at PointsBet

Corey Conners is another guy who tends to play consistent golf day-today and tournament-to-tournament who has failed to post a win on the PGA Tour since 2019.

This season so far, Conners has played in 24 events for an incredible seven Top-10s and 15 Top-25s, with his best result coming at the Arnold Palmer Invitational where he finished third.

Frankly, his odds are too long this week at 35/1 and I fully expect him to be near the top of the leaderboard at the end of Thursday's play, giving himself a chance of grabbing the dub.

Why join PointsBet? Well, it's actually a no-brainer! They have the easiest sign-up process of all the online sportsbooks. PLUS their app is super fast and easy to use, while they also offer promos to existing customers! Joining PointsBet only takes a minute, so go on!

2021 Scottish Open Dark Horse ๐Ÿ”ฎ 

Francesco Molinari +7000 (70/1)
Bet $10, win $700 at PointsBet

Usually, this dark horse play has some more logic to it this week, but I'll be honest, this is much more of a dart throw than usual.

Francesco Molinari has three Top-10s on the PGA Tour this week but will feel extra comfortable playing in Europe this week.

As a guy who very much knows how to win, as well peak around the majors, Molinari's 70/1 odds are way too juicy this week!
