Hong Kong Open Odds & Golf Betting Tips with Preview
It was a thrilling end to the European Tour last weekend as the DP Tour Championship and the Race to Dubai went all the way down to the wire, writes Matt. It was also a great week for us with Jon Rahm coming home as our outright winner at 14/1 with Kiradech Aphibarnrat adding a Top Ten Finish at 4/1 to swell the profits!
We now enter a fairly sedate period with the last three weeks of competition for 2017 before the Christmas break but there are some interesting tournaments coming up and some good value to be found.
We start the run with the Hong Kong Open where the 2015 Champion is in form and leading the betting ahead of the first tee time.
Justin Rose lost out so narrowly to Tommy Fleetwood in the Race to Dubai but having won two events out of his last three, the Englishman is an obvious favourite for Hong Kong at industry best odds of 5/1 (see Hong Kong Open odds comparison table above).
Despite fading uncharacteristically at the end of his final round in Dubai, Rose has those two straight wins across October and November and as we mentioned, he is a former winner at the Hong Kong Golf Club so has to be considered this week.
Close behind is Sergio Garcia at a top price of 13/2. It seems odd to suggest that at 37, any golfer has enjoyed a breakthrough season but that Masters win in April has lifted the Spaniard and after a strong finish in Dubai on Sunday, he looks more interesting than Rose right now.
Tommy Fleetwood only just held on to the ultimate prize last week having been hunted by Rose in the Race to Dubai for some time. Fleetwood’s form has dipped and he looked drained while being interviewed on Sunday so we’re looking to avoid his best odds of 16/1.
In contrast, Matthew Fitzpatrick has momentum and is a better option at a top price of 11/1 and he made a reasonable defence of the DP Championships, finishing just outside of the top ten.
Behind the top four, there is a significant gap until we find last year’s runner up, Rafael Cabrera Bello, at a best of 20/1 in the Hong Kong Open outright winner betting.
I’m surprised that Kiradech Aphibarnrat isn’t attracting a lower top price than his 25/1. The Thai golfer has found form in the second half of 2017 and after a consistent few weeks, claimed that second place in Dubai with three closing rounds of 67.
Dylan Frittelli also featured last week and can be picked up at generous best odds of 40/1 while Paul Dunne is also in form and available at that same top price.
Moving through the list and we have two former champions at high prices with 2014 winner Scott Hend and four-time title holder Miguel Angel Jimenez both available at 100/1 with one or two of the top rated bookmakers. Neither has enough form to suggest another triumph but both know how to win here and it is interesting that Miguel is as low as 66/1 with a number of outlets.
Influence of Course on Hong Kong Open Betting Trends
The Hong Kong Golf Club offers up one of the shortest courses we have seen all year, with a par 70 at a shade under 6,700 yards. Naturally, distance off the tee will not therefore be a factor
This is one of the oldest Asian Tour events having been first held way back in 1959 and some giants of the game have lifted the trophy over nearly 60 years. In more recent times, multiple winners have been very rare with Miguel Angel Jimenez’s impressive run of four wins between 2005 and 2014 being a complete anomaly.
Historically, Australians have a good record with two Aussie victories in two years being an interesting current indicator. As for stats, we are looking for tee to green and scrambling which brings us to the names we have already mentioned.
Our Preview’s Hong Kong Open Betting Tips Verdict
- Even the best players can tail off at the end of a long season but Sergio Garcia is finishing strongly and he is our preference each-way at best betting odds of 13/2 with Bet365.
- As for our Top 10 picks, they are: Aphibarnrat at 2/1 and Frittelli at 3/1 (both with Bet365) plus we will throw in Thongchai Jaidee at best odds of 8/1 with Betfred.
