2023 John Deere Classic odds, picks, field, predictions: Golf expert fading Ludvig Aberg at TPC Deere Run

Russell Henley will try to win for the fifth time in his career when he tees off at the 2023 John Deere Classic, which begins on Thursday at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Ill. The 34-year-old from Georgia last won in November when he captured the 2022 World Wide Technology Championship. He enters the John Deere Classic 2023 having recorded four straight top-20 finishes. 

According to the latest 2023 John Deere Classic odds, Henley and Denny McCarthy are listed as the 14-1 co-favorites. Other notable 2023 John Deere Classic contenders include Cameron Young (16-1), Adam Hadwin (22-1) and Ludvig Aberg (22-1). Before locking in any 2023 John Deere Classic picks, make sure you see the PGA predictions and best bets from golf betting and fantasy expert Sia Nejad.

Nejad specializes in betting and DFS in golf, among other sports. He’s had incredible success in the outright and first-round leader markets and in betting head-to-head matchups. The expert has been on fire on head-to-head matchups since the Charles Schwab Challenge, going 15-4 and returning 9.05 units over that span. That’s a $900 profit for $100 bettors in the past six weeks.

Nejad also nailed 75-1 longshot Wyndham Clark as the outright winner at the Wells Fargo Championship. In 2023, SportsLine debuted “The Early Wedge,” and in the first three months of the show, he hit two first-round leaders and three outright winners. Nejad also had a winning head-to-head record in eight of 10 weeks. He was up more than 70 units over that three-month span.

Now, Nejad has focused his attention on the 2023 John Deere Classic field and has locked in his best bets, top sleepers and favorites to avoid. See who they are at SportsLine.

Top 2023 John Deere Classic expert picks

After doing a deep dive on the John Deere Classic field, Nejad is taking a stand against Ludvig Aberg. A 23-year-old rookie, Aberg is listed at +2200 in the John Deere Classic odds. He is coming off a 40th place finish last week in Detroit, but the result could’ve been much better after he opened the tournament with a seven-under 65. “I like Aberg quite a bit, but last week’s +5500 was much more palatable than this week’s number, and I’m happy to lay off him this week for players at longer odds,” Nejad told SportsLine.

However, Nejad likes Eric Cole, a +3000 longshot. After a string of missed cuts early in the 2022-23 PGA Tour campaign, Cole has found some rhythm recently. He made it to a playoff at the Honda Classic in February, finished T5 at the Mexico Open at Vidanta in April and then was T6 at the RBC Canadian Open last month. He’s missed just one cut in his last seven events, so he’s a great bet to be around for the weekend against a weaker field, and Nejad thinks he’ll be well-suited if the scores go low. “He should be just fine in a birdie fest as he rates out well in scoring stats but more importantly has been very solid across-the-board this season,” Nejad told SportsLine. See who to pick at SportsLine.
