Northern Trust Betting Odds Preview plus Top Tips
It’s only been a fortnight since the final Major of 2017 but after a break of just one week following the US PGA, the majority of the world’s best golfers are back and heading to the Glen Oaks Club for the tournament known simply as The Northern Trust, writes Matt.
With FedEx Cup points on the line there is barely a notable absentee this week so let’s get straight into it.
It may be a little surprising for some to see Hideki Matsuyma heading Jordan Spieth in the Northern Trust outright betting odds but as the more recent winner on the tour, the Japanese golfer shades it at an industry best price of 11/1 with Boylesports.
Spieth follows at a best of 12/1 with Bet365. The American has yet to switch his form back Stateside after victory at the British Open last month but always has the capability to raise his game from a slump. Of the two, Matsuyama heads the Power Rankings and has six wins in the last ten months so perhaps he is deserving of that marginal favourite’s berth although neither man has a particularly good record here.
It’s a very tight betting market so this week’s chasing pack starts with three men who are only marginally behind the two favourites. Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler and Dustin Johnson are all circa 14/1 with our top recommended bookies, though the odds comparison table above has the very latest odds.
Of those three, Rory’s form has given us little encouragement and with the Northern Irishman originally doubtful for this event owing to a flare up of his rib injury, we should probably dismiss him straight away.
Fowler has threatened to get over the line in recent weeks while we still wait for Johnson to find the form that took him to the World Number One berth. Perhaps the slight change in the overnight markets is a clue with two men drifting a little and Johnson, who won this event in 2011, holding steady at 14/1 with Bet365.
Further back, Brooks Koepka at 20/1 with Bet365 and Henrik Stenson at a top price of 25/1 with Boylesports are some way down the market despite featuring highly in the Power Rankings. Koepka ranks second this week and sits Tied 2nd on Tour for birdie or better percentage while Stenson lifted the Wyndham Championship in some style at the weekend. Clearly, either man could offer excellent value as an each-way punt at the very least.
Defending Champion Patrick Reed goes off this week at a tempting industry best of 50/1 with Betfred. He is eighth in strokes gained this season and arrives here off the back of that tied second in the PGA Championship.
Elsewhere, a consistent figure in the Top Ten this season, Paul Casey is at 33/1 with Bet365 in the outrights and with nine top 15s in his last eleven starts, we’ll be looking at the Englishman again this week.
Other names to consider as we move down the list include Matt Kuchar who has also been consistent since the Scottish Open in July. In addition, there are some great prices for Justin Rose at 60/1 with Stan James, Kevin Chappell at 70/1 with William Hill, Zach Johnson at that same 70/1 with Betfred and Webb Simpson, who was third last weekend but comes in here at an excellent 100/1 with Betfred for the outright win.
Northern Trust Course Influence, Trends & Betting Tips Conclusion
2017’s Northern Trust will tee off at the Glen Oaks Club in New York and despite its low par 70, this is a relatively long course at 7,350 yards. It’s a new venue on tour so it’s a step into the unknown to an extent although it’s been likened to Augusta with its deep bunkers and tight greens.
- Scrambling and putting will be key and this preview thinks it is time for Dustin Johnson to finally get back to his best following that Masters injury. He has all the credentials so bet on Dustin Johnson each-way at best odds of 14/1 with Bet365.
- Elsewhere, Stenson looks a real threat and a tempter in the outright odds at that top price of 25/1 with Boylesports but we’ll play safer and the betting tip is to take Stenson for a Top Ten finish at a best of 5/2 with Stan James. Other Top Ten betting tips this week are Casey at 3/1, Rose at 5/1, Chappell at 6/1 and Webb Simpson at 8/1 – all with Stan James.
