Golf Betting Tips: Wyndham Championship & Made In Denmark
Last week’s US PGA Championship was very kind to us on both the ante-post blog and regular weekly blog, with ante-post pick Jason Day (advised at 25/1) winning, and Brandon Grace placing – giving us a 50 points profit on the tournament. It was also a scintillating weekend of golf for those who stayed up late to watch it.
I can’t promise this week’s action will be as pulsating, but I’m recommending bets on both the PGA Tour (Wyndham Championship) and the European Tour (Made In Denmark).
Brandt Snedeker 2 points each-way @ 201/1 (Bet365, Betvictor, Ladbrokes) ¼ odds 5 places
Snedeker has looked to be trending in the right direction in his last few events, and his 12th in last week’s PGA should have got him in the mood for trying to win a tournament he has won before, and twice been placed in from 8 appearances. He won at Pebble Beach for the second time earlier in the season, and lightning may strike twice.
Carl Petterson 1 point each-way @ 66/1 (Coral, Stan James) ¼ odds 5 places
The rotund Swede is another previous winner of the event, and has also hit the places a further 3 times in 8 appearances. Never the most consistent player, he has hit the top-5 twice in his last 6 events – and could go well once more at somewhere he loves.
Nick Watney 1 point each-way @ 80/1 (Ladbrokes, Coral) ¼ odds 5 places
Watney’s 30th place finish on his return to Whistling Straits last week, a place he could have won a major at in 2010, was a decent performance, and he’s also finished in the top-6 twice here in the last 6 years. Not as good as he was predicted to be, but he’s still capable of a big performance and will surely win again somewhere before too long.
Made In Denmark
Mikael Lundberg 0.5 points each-way @ 150/1 (Various) ¼ odds 5 places, and 1 point top-10 @ 14/1 (Stan James)
With many of the prices of players at the head of the market looking way too short, I’m going to take a real chance on the rather enigmatic Swede. He’s recent form is nothing to shout about, but he did win on tour last year. He also finished 9th in this event last year, and won his first Challenge Tour event at the course way back in 1997.
