Golf Betting Tips: Dubai Desert Classic Preview

Golf Betting Tips: Dubai Desert Classic Preview

January 28, 2015

Home / Golf /


The final leg of the Desert Swing takes us to Dubai this week, where the Dubai Desert Classic has attracted the cream of European golf and we’ve got the best golf betting tips for you right here.

Rory McIlroy, Henrik Stenson, Martin Kaymer, Sergo Garcia and Lee Westwood have all turned up, and all have the class to prevail. Of the big-5 only Garcia, who has yet to have a top-10 finish here, has yet to post a win or runner-up finish in the event, whilst McIlroy has finished in the top-10 on his last five visits. Add in his current European Tour form of 1/1/1/2/2/2 and it’s hard to see Rory not at least finishing in the top-5. However, the each-way thieves have hoovered-up all the 4/1 – and at 10/3 I’m going to have to pass.

I actually fancy Rory to win this week, but instead I’m backing 4 players to register top-10 or top-20 finishes at better value odds.

4 points Stephen Gallacher Top-10 finish @ 3/1 (Stan James)

The Scot owes a large part of his career to this event, and victory here last year was the main reason he made the 2014 Ryder Cup team. His tournament figures for the last four years are 10/2/1/1 – and it’s hard to believe he’s nearly the same price to finish in the top-10 as Rory is to win.

2 points Ernie Els Top-10 finish @ 11/2 (Boylesports)

The 44-year-old 4-time major winner may not be the force he once was but between 2002 and 2008 he finished 1/2/3/1/2/2/3 in this event. Recently, he’s shown some signs that some magic still exists finishing 20/12/23 in his last three events, and windy conditions would aid his cause.

2 points Tommy Fleetwood Top-10 finish @ 6/1 (Bet365)

The 24-year-old Englishman isn’t usually the quickest of starters when it comes to the New Year, but this year he has the extra motivation of trying to elevate himself from no.55 in the world rankings to a position in the top-50 that would get him a calling card to Augusta in April. His three appearances here have resulted in very mixed finishes 57/10/MC – but that statistically still only makes him a 2/1 shot for a top-10 finish.

2 points Robert Rock Top-20 finish @ 6/1 (888 and Unibet)

A leap of faith has to be taken with Rock in his current form, but 5-year form figures of 20/20/51/7/5 provide hope that his enthusiasm will be rekindled by a return to a course he obviously loves – and 6/1 to finish in the top-20 again looks way too big.

Story of last week

90/1 each-way pick Alejandro Canizares just missed out on the each-way places in finishing 8th, but did land our top-10 bet on him to give us a 7 point profit on the week.
