The last of nine designated events on the PGA Tour season is on tap this week with the 2023 Travelers Championship set to tee off at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut. World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler is the 6-1 betting favorite in an elite Travelers Championship field. Other top contenders in the latest Travelers Championship odds from Caesars Sportsbook include Patrick Cantlay (9-1), Rory McIlroy (10-1), Jon Rahm (10-1), Xander Schauffele (12-1), and Viktor Hovland (20-1).

Which 2023 Travelers Championship head-to-head matchup picks should you target, and what 2023 Travelers Championship prop bets could set you up for a strong payday? Before locking in any Travelers Championship 2023 picks of your own, be sure to check out the PGA predictions and betting advice from SportsLine golf expert Mike McClure.

We simulated the 2023 Travelers Championship 10,000 times, and there are some major surprises. 

Our proprietary model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been red-hot since the PGA Tour resumed in June of 2020. In fact, the model is up over $10,000 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.

McClure's model predicted Jon Rahm would finish on top of the leaderboard at the 2023 Sentry Tournament of Champions and The American Express. And at the 2023 Masters, the model was all over Rahm's second career major victory heading into the weekend. Rahm was two strokes off the lead heading into the third round, but the model still projected him as the winner. It was the second straight Masters win for the model, which also nailed Scottie Scheffler winning in 2022.

In addition, the model included Nick Taylor in its best bets to win the 2023 RBC Canadian Open. That bet hit at +7000, and for the entire tournament, McClure's best bets returned nearly $1,900. McClure's best bets also included Jason Day (17-1) winning outright at the 2023 AT&T Byron Nelson, even though he hadn't won a PGA Tour event since 2018.

This same model has also nailed a whopping nine majors entering the weekend! Anyone who has followed it has seen massive returns.

Now, McClure has set his sights on the 2023 Travelers Championship field and just revealed his top PGA prop bets. You can head to SportsLine now to see all of McClure's 2023 Travelers Championship prop picks, sleepers, head-to-head matchups and best bets.

Top 2023 Travelers Championship prop picks

One of McClure's favorite prop bet picks this week at the PGA Championship 2023 is Justin Thomas finishing in the top 20 of the final leaderboard at +250 odds (risk $100 to win $250). Thomas has battled inconsistencies all year, but is a proven winner on the PGA Tour. The 30-year-old has 15 career PGA victories, with his most recent coming at the 2022 PGA Championship at Southern Hills.

Thomas has dipped to No. 18 in the Official World Golf Ranking, but still ranks well in multiple statistical categories. The former Alabama standout ranks seventh on the PGA Tour in strokes gained around the green (0.461) and 24th in strokes gained tee-to-green (0.949). While he hasn't been playing his best golf as of late, McClure still sees plenty of value in taking Thomas to finish in the top-20 at the Travelers for a plus-money payout. You can see the rest of McClure's 2023 Travelers Championship prop bet picks at SportsLine.
