Golf’s CJ Cup Odds Guide and Betting Preview
It’s still fairly quiet in terms of big name participation on the PGA Tour but as Pat Perez showed at the weekend, that can leave plenty of value in the golfing markets right now, writes Matt. Jordan Spieth and Dustin Johnson are the most notable absentees so there are plenty of options for the CJ Cup which is a brand new event on the tour.
It was a great four days for 41 year old Perez who landed his third PGA win in the CIMB Classic and it was a profitable tournament for readers of my JustBookies’ golf previews too with three of our five Top Ten tips coming in at 8/11, 5/2 and 6/1 respectively. Let’s see if we can keep that run going.
Once again, Justin Thomas is the highest ranked golfer on show this week and the reigning PGA Champion. So he heads the bookies’ CJ Cup odds for the outright winner market at an industry best of 15/2 with Betfred. He may be the best player here but as we saw last week when he was even shorter, that’s no guarantee in terms of profit. Thomas finished down in a tie for 17th on Sunday with a creditable score of 12 under that never looked like threatening the leaders.
Mr Consistency, Paul Casey, returned yet another top ten finish at the CIMB Classic on Sunday to return a profit at that 8/11 price and he follows Justin Thomas at best odds of 12/1 with William Hill and Paddy Power. Casey is one of those golfers that delivers those Top Ten returns on a consistent basis without ever looking like taking a trophy so perhaps he’s another to avoid.
Close behind is Jason Day at a best of 14/1 with William Hill and then we start to drift as the fourth favourite Xander Schauffele is out at a top price of 20/1 with BoyleSports.
Our most recent Tour Winner Pat Perez is listed at best odds of 30/1 (Paddy Power and Betfair) and interestingly he has drifted overnight from Monday’s best of 25/1. Back to back wins are rare anywhere but it’s certainly not uncommon to follow up a victory with a good place.
Keegan Bradley was the man to give us that 6/1 return in the Top Ten market on Sunday and after that solo second in Malaysia, he is a tempter at best CJ Cup odds of 33/1 with Bet365. Other players in the Chasing Pack section include Marc Leishmann at 25/1 and Patrick Reed at 33/1 in the outright betting. Both have shown patchy form but have the qualities to force a win this week.
Some poor returns from Adam Scott have seen the former US Masters winner quoted at a best of 40/1 with Stan James and once again there’s been a shift in pricing overnight. On Monday, you could have claimed even bigger, so clearly that’s tempted some punters.
He’s 37 so the Australian certainly isn’t reaching the twilight of his career and he won two events at the start of 2016 so you feel that at some point he’s going to deliver a tidy profit at something around those figures.
Other tempting long shots this week include Branden Grace at 50/1 and Byeong Hun An at 60/1 (both Bet365) plus JB Holmes at 66/1 with SunBets.
CJ Cup Course Influence and Stats
We’re in South Korea this week at the Nine Bridges Golf Club on the volcanic Jeju Island where we have a par 72 course at a relatively lengthy 7,265 yards. As a brand new event we can’t assess any trends involving previous winners so what are the key stats needed to get over the line here?
Obviously it’s a fairly lengthy venue so distance off the tee will need to be taken into account while sand is in play on most of the holes. Scrambling is likely to be another key stat but to be honest, we’re all taking a step into the unknown to an extent.
CJ Cup Betting Tips Verdict
- With a debut event on a new course, it is tougher to call a winner so we’ll hedge with an each-way bet and the stand out price is that of Keegan Bradley at 33/1 with Bet365. He has been a consistent pick in the Top Ten markets and a very underrated golfer.
- As for this week’s Top Ten options, with best odds chosen from our top rated bookies, we’re tipping Paul Casey at 5/6, Xander Schauffele at 5/4, Pat Perez at 2/1 and Adam Scott at 2/1. In all cases, those best prices can be taken with either Coral or Ladbrokes.
