The PGA Tour will tee it up in Mexico on Thursday, November 2nd for the 2023 World Wide Technology Championship. Some of the sport's biggest stars will look to tame El Cardonal at Dimante, where Russell Henley took home the crown last year.
According to DraftKings, Ludvig Aberg is the favorite to win this year's tournament with odds of +900. Cameron Young and Sahith Theegala are next in line with odds of +1100 and +1400, respectively. We didn't pick an outright for this event, but here are 8 bets to consider.
Keith Mitchell is coming off a solid 21st place finish at the ZOZO Championship. He has made the cut here at the WW Tech Championship 3 of the last 5 years, something his opponent here cannot say.
Luke List has failed to make the cut in 5 straight seasons here. He has not played since the Shriner’s Open where he finished 18th.
Ultimately, we are simply fading List here who just does not seem to have the ability to make it to the weekend here.
After winning the event outright in 2018, Matt Kuchar has gone on to finish inside the top 30 in his next 3 starts here at the WW Tech Championship. His recent form is great as he finished in a tie for 7th at the Fortinet Championship.
While that Fortinet tournament was a while back, Kirk has not played since late August at the BMW where he finished 29th. His previous starts here have seen him make the cut every year but his best finish was in 2019 when he finished 33rd.
We like backing Kuchar here who seemingly always finds himself in the mix over the weekend here.
Detry is one of the favorites to win this event, but we feel much more comfortable taking him in a simple matchup. While he has only played in this event the last 2 seasons, he has had success in each.
After finished 22nd in 2021, he followed that up with a 15th place finish last season. He faces Grillo here who played well here from 2018-2020 when he got a 15th and 8th place finish.
Since then, he has missed the cut and finished 42nd last season. He seems to be trending in the wrong direction here while Detry is going the other way.
This will be Theegala’s 1st time competing in this event while Jaeger has placed twice in the last 5 years. In 2018, they finished 16th and then after a 2-year hiatus, he came back in 2021 and missed the cut.
Jaeger’s latest tournament was the Sanderson Farms Championship where he finished 25th. Theegala, on the other hand, is coming off a 19th place finish at the ZOZO which followed up his outright win of the Fortinet in mid-September.
McNealy has been on a long layoff. He has not competed on Tour since early June at the RBC Canadian Open. We are throwing recent form out the window here with Maverick and instead, are banking on his success over the years at this specific event.
He has competed in 4 of the last 5 WW Tech Championships and has finished no worse than 26th. Last year was his best finish, finishing in 10th place.
Merritt really struggled through the end of last season. He had a bunch of missed cuts and 50th or worse finishes. However, this season, he has been off to a great start. He was 7th at the Fortinet and 9th at the Sanderson Farms Championship. Here at the WW Tech Championship, he has consistently leveled up his play from year to year.
In 2020, he finished 40th and followed that up with a 15th place finish in 2021 before finishing a career best, 3rd in 2022.
Detry looks to make it 3 straight WW Tech Championships finishing inside the top 25. He followed up a 22nd place finish in 2021 with a 15th place finish last season.
We believe that despite finishing 61st and 51st in his last 2 events on Tour, Detry will get back right at an event he is confident and successful at each year.
Kuchar is coming off an impressive 7th place finish at the Fortinet after shooting 13 under for the tournament. He certainly has the ability and previous success here to finish inside the Top 30 for us.
He finished 27th last season after finishing 22nd and 14th in years previous. Then, in 2018, Kuchar put it all together and won the event outright. We like him to be in the mix come Sunday afternoon.
