Nedbank Challenge Odds Guide, Preview & Betting Tips
We had a thrilling finish to the Turkish Airlines Open at the weekend and the Race to Dubai is building up to an equally thrilling climax so it makes sense to stay on the European Tour this week and consider the Nedbank Challenge, writes Matt.
Another strong field has travelled as golfers look to build on their Dubai standings but our back-to-back winner Justin Rose is absent and that makes it a very open contest with some potential for top value. We landed the one Top Ten Tip last week as Kiradech Aphibarnrat tied for sixth but it keeps a run going and we’ll see if we can build on that now.
We have joint favourites at the head of the market in the Nedbank Challenge odds, with local boy Louis Oosthuizen quoted at an industry best price of 16/1 with Bet365. That local knowledge may help but Oosthuizen has no great record in this event and form doesn’t really justify such a lofty place in the outright betting.
In contrast, Tyrrell Hatton continued his strong run of form with a sound, if unspectacular finish in Turkey at the weekend and the Englishman could be picked up at the same odds of 16/1 but has been backed into 14/1 generally (see Nedbank betting odds comparison table above for latest odds). Hatton has shortened with some of our recommended bookmakers overnight and is down at 12/1 in a place so that’s a clear hint that he should be the preferred pick of the two favourites following back-to-back wins in October.
Alex Noren is our defending champion this week and the Swede is among the chasing pack at a top price of 25/1 with Unibet. Noren came good for us in the BMW PGA back in May but has no form with a Missed Cut and two top-30s in his last three outings.
Elsewhere, leader of the Race to Dubai, Tommy Fleetwood has drifted after a mixed run of form and can be picked up at a tempting best of 20/1 with Bet365. Fleetwood has just the one top ten finish in his last four outings but the emergence of Rose in the Race to Dubai may just galvanise him and help rediscover his best form.
Other interesting prices in this group include 20/1 shots Matt Fitzpatrick and Ross Fisher. Another likely prospect is Shane Lowry who challenged for much of last week’s tournament and is out at a top price of 25/1 with Betfred. Meanwhile our Top Ten Tip from Turkey, Aphibarnrat, is at 33/1 with Boylesports for the win.
Ian Poulter was our outside pick last week at 40/1 but a stroke of bad luck derailed what had been a strong early challenge in Turkey. Poulter’s ball struck the flagstick early in the second round, rebounding into the water and he seemed to lose focus from that point.
Poults has actually shortened this week to a best of 35/1 with Bet365 and while he will always carry a threat, he looks to be drifting after a tough season.
Lee Westwood, like Shane Lowry, was another player in contention in Turkey and he looks a tempter at best odds in the outrights of 45/1 with Bet365. Moving through the list of outsiders there is plenty of choice among golfers who performed well last week. Thorbjorn Olesen is at a best of 40/1, Paul Dunne is at 55/1 while Matthew Southgate is way out at 100/1.
Perhaps the best price here belongs to Padraig Harrington who, at one point, was the only golfer left in Turkey with a chance of catching Justin Rose. The Irishman is available at an industry best price of 80/1 with Stan James for the win.
The players are at the Gary Player Country Club this week at a course that is a par 72 at a lengthy 7,831 yards. Even by today’s standards, the longer hitters will tend to have an advantage but fairways are tight so the perfect combination of length and accuracy is essential.
Nedbank Challenge Odds Guide & Betting Tips Verdict
- It goes without saying that putting is also going to be key and the Nedbank has given us some low scoring winners over recent renewals. Combine those options and our Nedbank outright winner betting tip this week has to be Tommy Fleetwood, who looks good value each-way at 14/1 with Bet365.
- Our Top Ten tips are Paul Dunne at 9/2 with Stan James plus Lee Westwood at 7/2 with Bet365 and Matthew Southgate at 8/1 with Betfred.
