This week the PGA Tour travels across the Pacific to Japan for the 2023 Zozo Championship, and we’re picking the same long shot as last week to pull off an unlikely win. Here’s our pick, the Zozo Championship odds, betting favorites and everything else you need to know for the week.

Zozo Championship odds: Long-shot bet

For this week’s long-shot pick, we’re running it back and picking the same player we tapped last week, Cameron Champ. However, Champ’s odds-to-win have improved from last week to +5000, and for good reason.

Beginning last week at +6600, Champ contended the first two days at the Shriners Children’s Open and eventually finished T18. It was his second-straight solid start after finishing T9 at the Sanderson Farms Championship.

While Champ’s game is clearly coming around after a rough reason, he also has some quality experience at the Zozo Championship. Last year, Champ finished 8th in Japan, four shots behind winner Keegan Bradley.

If you bet $10 on Champ to win and he comes through, you’ll take home $500. For additional bets, consider putting small wagers on Champ to finish top 10 and top 20.

Looking for more long-shot picks for the Zozo Championship? Our honorable-mention long shots for the week are Nick Taylor (+5000) and Keith Mitchell (+6600).
