Analysis of British Masters Odds with Betting Preview
After an absence of six years, the British Masters returned to the European Tour in 2015 and once again proved to be a success, writes Matt. This year, the tournament switches to The Grove and with a number of high profile British Players taking part, there is a lot of betting interest ahead of Thursday’s tee-off.
Matthew Fitzpatrick took the title at Woburn twelve months ago to claim his first ever professional title and has spent 2016 in good form. A tied seventh at the US Masters and a second tour victory, at the Nordea Masters, sees him listed at 25/1 in some places but currently you can claim an impressive 40/1 in the British Masters odds for outright winner with Bet365.
Greg Norman in 1982 was the last golfer to successfully defend his British Masters crown so history isn’t necessarily on Fitzpatrick’s side but it’s been a reasonable year for the 22 year old and 7/2 with Stan James on a top 10 finish looks a strong option.
Men in form
Naturally, attention will turn to the most recent winners so we see plenty of money behind Tyrell Hatton who took the Alfred Dunhill Masters at the weekend. Different conditions await in leafy Hertfordshire with the 7,152 yard Grove providing a contrasting challenge to the Scottish links but form can’t be ignored and Hatton is at 25/1 with Ladbrokes to win this week.
The only remaining former Champion to consider is Lee Westwood who won in 2007 at the Belfry. It’s been a subdued year for Lee however, and after the disappointment of the Ryder Cup, even a distant 50/1 with Coral will see few takers.
Elsewhere, Andrew Johnston is being mentioned strongly by the pundits and ‘Beef’ certainly seems to be peaking just in time for this event. Having shrewdly taken five weeks off after the PGA, Johnston returned to claim a solo third at the European Masters and a tie for fourth at Boise and he will certainly have the support of the home galleries this week.
The 27-year-old grew up playing just down the road in Middlesex and as we all know, Johnston responds so well to a big crowd. Beef is priced at 40/1 with Bet365 for the win in the British Masters odds and at 7/2 with Bet365 for a top 10 finish. Based on form and home comforts, that latter figure looks to be the pick of the week.
Out of favour
One golfer who is struggling to return to former glories is Luke Donald, currently listed at odds of 33/1 with Ladbrokes to win at the Grove. It’s certainly been a barren period for the 38-year-old and he is hosting this tournament which can often be a curse, but Donald looks a tempter at 11/4 with Paddy Power and Stan James for a top ten finish.
If you’re looking for a form outsider then the Finn Mikko Ilonen is attracting some interest ahead of Thursday’s start. Ilonen’s tied 18th at the Alfred Dunhill sounds modest enough but it featured back to back 67s, suggesting that a punt at 100/1 for the win or 9/1 for a top ten – both with Coral – may not be the worst options this weekend.
Two of last year’s runners up are also in the frame with Soren Kjeldsen and Shane Lowry being talked up. Dane Kjeldsen recorded a commendable tie for 7th at the Alfred Dunhill and an identical finish at the US Masters sees him listed among the favourites in the British Masters odds at 30/1 with Bet365.
Kjeldsen’s trophy cabinet has been bare since winning the Dubai Masters last May but a breakthrough is widely expected soon and once again, the top ten price of 11/4 with Paddy Power and Stan James looks seriously good.
The same can’t be said of Lowry who has struggled since his Masters ‘choke’ and looks too short as fifth favourite – 25/1 for the win with BetVictor.
British Masters Betting Tips Conclusion
Back to back tour wins and successful title defences remain rare and for that reason alone, it’s best to stay away from Tyrell Hatton and Matthew Fitzpatrick. The better value certainly lies further down the field in Ross Fisher and Andrew Johnston and while Beef is a decent option to lift the trophy on Sunday, his price of 7/2 with Bet365 for a top ten is the pick this week.
