Golf Betting Tips: Reed Looks Rock Solid At Pebble Beach
The PGA Tour heads to the iconic Pebble Beach this week which hosts the AT&T, whilst the European Tour heads to Thailand for the True Thailand Classic.
Fancy some Golf Betting Tips on those events? You’re in the right place…
AT&T Pebble Beach
Patrick Reed 1.5 points each-way @ 20/1 Stan James
The top-5 in the market all look to have obvious chances with Jimmy Walker and Dustin Johnson already on the AT&T roll of honour, whilst Jason Day and Jordan Spieth have the talent to win anywhere. However, the value has to be with four-time winner Reed. Apart from a knack of winning when in contention, I also love Reed’s appreciation of golfing history – and he’ll be hungry to win at this iconic course. He can improve on his two starts here when he finished 7th and 13th.
Spencer Levin 2 points top-10 @ 8/1 St James
Not one of golf’s stars but has plenty of game when in form, and his 11th at Torrey Pines last week was a fine effort. Enjoyed top-10 finishes in this event in 2011 and 2012 – and 8/1 looks very fair for him to repeat the feat.
Chessen Hadley 1 point top-10 @ 16/1 Stan James
The 27-year-old has played only 38 PGA Tour events, finishing in the top-10 on four occasions, one of which was here last season when he came into the tournament having missed the cut in his previous event, as he does here. He also managed to finish in the top-10 eight times in 23 Web.com events – and looks a value stab.
Steve Bowditch 2 points top-20 @ 7/1 Bet365
Bowditch hasn’t featured on many leaderboards leading up to this event, but that was also the case in each of the last four years when he recorded tournament figures of 9/15/MC/19, and it may well be he’ll be rejuvenated again by a return to this mesmerising venue.
True Thailand Classic
A tricky tournament as some of the Asian based players have plenty of course knowledge, and some classier types such as Alex Noren and Marc Warren heading here in decent form. However I’m going to stick my neck out on just one each-way selection.
Renato Paratore 1 point each-way @ 50/1
Measuring potential over proven performers is hard – but in the case of the young Italian it looks a case of when he’ll win rather than if. I might well be putting too much pressure on him but Paratore had an impressive Desert Swing finishing 57th, 38th and 13th, progressing with each event. He was particularly impressive in Dubai, which was a much stronger field than this, and a repeat of that sort of form should at least see him in the places. The wide open fairways should mean he also gets plenty of birdie chances and, being very slim, the humidity shouldn’t bother him.
Story Of Last Week
