There have been 13 first-time winners on the PGA Tour during the 2022-23 season, and bettors at the BetMGM online sportsbook believe there could be another this week at the World Wide Technology Championship in Los Cabos, Mexico.

Cameron Young, 26, who has six runner-up finishes and 12 top-10s over the course of his PGA Tour career, is one of the most popular players this week.

Young is pulling in the second-most handle (10.6%) on the second-most tickets (6.7%).

The Wake Forest product didn’t have nearly as good of a sophomore season as his rookie year, but he closed the year strong, with four top-15 finishes in his last six starts, including two top-10s.

Ludvig Aberg is another player seeking his first PGA Tour win drawing some heavy action. The 24-year-old is pulling in the third-highest handle (9.6%) on the fifth-most tickets (5.5%).

Aberg helped Team Europe to a Ryder Cup victory earlier in the fall and then lost in a playoff the following week at the Sanderson Farms Championship.

He has the best PGA Tour odds this week at +900, while Young has the second-best at +1200.

The event will be held at El Cardonal at Diamante, which was designed by Tiger Woods. It is the first course designed by Woods to host a PGA Tour event. 

The fairways and greens are massive, but the course’s best defense might be the wind, as it is expected to swirl. There will also be some elevation changes, as there’s a 240-foot drop from the 17th tee to the third fairway.

Conditions are expected to be firm and fast, with the region not receiving much rain at all throughout the year.

Cameron Champ (+5000), Brandon Wu (+6600) and Emiliano Grillo (+2500) are BetMGM’s biggest liabilities.
