Ladies PGA Portland Classic 2023 Betting Odds & Favorites
The odds for the Portland Classic are very close, and there isn’t a clear favorite to bag the win in Oregon. According to the US female golf bookies, Hyo Joo Kim tops the charts, and this is deserved as she has been on a steady rise in the last few weeks. Linn Grant is the surprise inclusion in this list as she breaks into the LPGA top five favorites for the first time in over two months.
Hyo Joo Kim @ 13.00 (12/1)
Hyo Joo Kim was one of the best golfers at the AIG Women’s Open at the Walton Heath Old Course, and she has a very good chance of bagging the win in the Portland Classic. The South Korean is currently seventh in the official world rankings, and she is in dire need of a good start after a not-so-desirable outing at the Canadian Women’s Open.
Nelly Korda @ 15.00 (14/1)
Nelly Korda is making a good case to finish the season as the best golfer, but she has to get past the outstanding Lilia Vu. The American professional golfer sits second on the official world rankings, and she would be eyeing her first win in the Portland Classic. Nelly Korda has struggled to bag a win recently in the LPGA, but she can turn things around in this tournament.
Linn Grant @ 17.00 (16/1)
Linn Grant had one of her best moments of the season at the Canadian Open as she secured a sixth-place rank at the Shaughnessy Golf Course. This automatically puts her in the top three favorites to win the Portland Classic, but there are question marks about her ability to impress for the second consecutive time. Linn Grant is one of the players chasing her first Portland Classic win.
Nasa Hataoka @ 19.00 (18/1)
Nasa Hataoka started the Canadian Women’s Open in good fashion, but she couldn’t get a top-ten spot in the final standings. However, the Japanese still had a respectable finish, and she made it into the top five to win the Portland Classic. Nasa Hataoka sits outside the top ten on the official world rankings, but she has been one of the most consistent golfers in the last few weeks.
Lilia Vu @ 19.00 (18/1)
Lilia Vu sits at the top of the official world rankings, but she isn’t a top three favorite on the odds to win the LPGA 2023 Portland Classic. The American professional golfer ranked 22nd at the Canadian Women’s Open, and this affected her odds to win, but she is still a force to reckon with. Lilia Vu won the AIG Women’s Open in August at the Walton Heath Old Course, and she isn’t far off a win at the Portland Classic.

2023 Golf Portland Classic Betting Tips
The Portland Classic 2023 features the best golfers in the world, and there is a wide range of exciting options available on women’s golf betting sites. We have compiled the best picks from experts in this golf event.
Top Three Finish – Hyo Joo Kim @ 3.00 (2/1)
Hyo Joo Kim has the lowest odds to win here, and although things are very tight among the top golfers here, a top-three finish should come easy for the South Korean golfer. She came very close to winning the Scottish Open earlier this month, finishing only behind Celine Boutier in the final rankings. Hyo Joo Kim has moved up the ranks to seventh in the world rankings, and she could crack into the top five by the end of the season. The bookmakers have good offers on Hyo Joo Kim to finish in the top three.
Top 10 Finish – Nasa Hataoka @ 2.25 (5/4)
Nasa Hataoka has come very close to breaking into the top ten in her last few LPGA tournaments, and this event could be her chance to do so. She has finished 13th in the CPKC Women’s Open, and this comes a few weeks after her 11th-place finish at the AIG Women’s Open. Nasa Hataoka was a top-three golfer at the Amundi Evian Championship, and there is no doubt about her quality heading into this tournament in Portland.
Top Seven Finish – Linn Grant @ 2.10 (11/10)
Linn Grant could have had a better finish at the Canadian Women’s Open, but she had to settle for a sixth-place rank, and considering the people she was up against, that was quite impressive. Prior to the Canadian Women’s Open, Linn Grant ranked 11th at the AIG Women’s Open, and she is at her best currently. Backing Linn Grant to finish anywhere in the top seven is a very valuable option in the Portland Classic.
