DP World Tour Championship Preview, Betting Tips & Guide to Odds
The Race to Dubai reaches its climax this week with the best of Europe’s golfers heading to the UAE and the Jumeirah Earth Course for the DP World Tour championship, writes Matt. Essentially, that particular battle is between two men with Tommy Fleetwood maintaining an advantage over Justin Rose as the latter sat out the Nedbank Challenge last week.
The ‘Race’ is an interesting side note but for us it is all about this tournament. We landed Lee Westwood as a 7/2 Top Ten bet in South Africa and while that didn’t give us an overall profit, it maintains a decent run so let’s see how we can build in Dubai.
Justin Rose returns and his back-to-back wins across October and November make him the clear favourite this week at an industry top price of 7/1 with Betfair and Paddy Power in the DP World Tour championship odds.
He has those recent tournament victories and while Rose has yet to win the DP World Tour Championship, he has been runner up on two separate occasions and that would seem to strengthen his claims this week.
Behind Rose we have the two Spaniards, Jon Rahm and Sergio Garcia, and the bookmakers are having a little trouble in separating them. Garcia is in third place in the Race to Dubai and can be picked up for this tournament at best odds of 12/1 with SunBets and Unibet.
Rahm, meanwhile, is the highest ranked European golfer in the world right now and after making breakthroughs on both tours in 2017, he is listed at a best of 14/1 with Stan James. Interestingly, Rahm has drifted from 12/1 overnight. The 2017 Irish Open winner takes breaks and switches tours but that may not help him find rhythm and consistency.
Last weekend’s Nedbank winner Branden Grace also squeezes into this category at best odds of 14/1 with Bet365.
Our defending champion this week is Matthew Fitzpatrick who goes off this week at 16/1 with Bet365. The 23 year old has been consistent this season and after a tie for eighth in South Africa, he is one to consider for the top ten markets at least.
Also at best 16/1 with Bet365 is Tyrrell Hatton who was runner up to Fitzpatrick last year by just one stroke. We’ve followed Hatton for much of this year but after back-to-back wins in October, his form has faded slightly and his petulant side has come through.
Race to Dubai leader Tommy Fleetwood has no real form right now but his lengthy win price of 25/1 with Coral will tempt many while Victor Dubuisson showed glimpses of his 2014 best at Sun City and is top priced 28/1 with Boylesports.
Sweden’s Alex Noren enjoyed a solid four rounds at the Nedbank without ever looking like defending his title and he will tempt many at a best of 40/1 with Bet365. A rare American visitor in Patrick Reed can also be picked up at 40/1 while our Top Ten finisher Lee Westwood is further back at 50/1.
The in-form Eddie Pepperell has a stand out top price of 66/1 (see DP World Tour Championship betting odds table above) and there are a host of golfers with potential who are around that 40/1 mark.
This season-ending event has only been held since 2009 but there are some indicators that we can carry through to this year’s renewal. We have already seen two multiple winners in just eight versions of this tournament with both Henrik Stenson and Rory McIlory completing the double.
Scoring is low and Stenson holds the record for the lowest four hole record at -25 when the Swede claimed his first title in 2013.
The course in the North of Dubai is a par 72 at a relatively lengthy 7,675 yards so distance hitting can definitely be a factor but there are fiendishly-placed bunkers that will penalise any inaccuracy off the tee. As we saw last week at Sun City, power and accuracy are key components so we wouldn’t necessarily want to discard our champion Branden Grace but we’re edging towards Rahm who has the game and the talent to end the tour on a high. So our DP World Tour Championship betting tips are:
- Back Jon Rahm each-wy at current best odds of 14/1 with Stan James.
- Top 10 recommendations this week are Branden Grace at 6/5 with Stan James, Lee Westwood at 4/1 with Ladbrokes and Kiradech Aphibarnrat at 4/1 with William Hill.
