Pebble Beach Pro-Am Preview, Betting Tips & Guide To Best Odds
While the appearance of many high profile, celebrity amateurs lends greater interest to this particular golf event, the serious business of picking a professional winner for this week’s Pebble Beach Pro-Am has begun, writes Matt. As the build up to the season’s first major is starting to intensify, some of the world’s top golfers are looking for their best form.
It’s an interesting field and an unusual format for the main trophy with many of the usual suspects at the head of the bookies’ Pebble Beach Pro-Am odds.
Analysis of Favourites in the Betting
Dustin Johnson starts things off for us here at an industry best of 8/1 with Bet365 and Paddy Power in the outright winner prices. The US Open Champion has experienced a mixed start to 2017 and while he is a two time winner of this event, the last of those titles came back in 2010.
Missing the cut at the Farmers Open two weeks ago isn’t the ideal result coming into this but prior to that, Johnson recorded a 4th and a 2nd and with a good course record he is an obvious pick to lead the line.
Jordan Spieth can also be found at that 8/1 figure while elsewhere, the 2015 Masters Champion is quoted at a best of 10/1 with BetFred. Spieth has recorded four straight top tens ahead of this event and is leading the PGA tour for Greens in Regulation which is a key quality for the three courses that play host to the Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
Others Fancied in Pebble Beach Odds
World Number One Jason Day has given us glimpses of his best form after an injury-enforced hiatus and the Aussie is widely listed at 12/1 from outlets including Paddy Power. Day has three top ten finishes here and recent form after that lay off suggests a comeback win isn’t far away, but it may not come this week.
Elsewhere, Justin Rose may be a more credible contender at his best odds of 16/1 with Ladbrokes and Coral. Like Day, the Englishman had been forced to take a break but results are better coming into this tournament and we should also consider that he finished 6th on debut here last year and, he actually tops the power rankings for this week. If you want to take a relatively short top ten bet, Rose is listed in this market at 13/8 with Paddy Power.
A top ten finish is the minimum I would expect from Brandt Snedeker who is quoted at 2/1 with Paddy Power for that bet. I thought Sneds would give us an even better profit after leading the Farmers after the third round but despite falling back to 9th, he is a great option for the win at 20/1 with Paddy Power and BetFred.
He’s won twice here too, the most recent victory coming just two years ago and I’m surprised that Snedeker isn’t a little shorter.
Pebble Beach Outsiders in Bookies’ Markets
I keep mentioning Jimmy Walker, mainly because the top bookies keep pushing him back – this time to a best of 40/1 with BetFred in the outrights. Remember that this is the current PGA Champion and a player who has a win here in 2014, alongside four top tens.
Other eye catching prices include Shane Lowry who is primed to get back to his best at 50/1 with William Hill and Coral, while surprise 2016 winner Vaughn Taylor is way out at 125/1 with BetFred and Ladbrokes. Taylor is, if nothing else, a course specialist here, with three top tens at the Pebble Beach Pro Am to sit beside that shock victory.
Pebble Beach Course and Tournament Trends
Three courses combine to form this tournament with Pebble Beach Links, Spyglass Hill and Monterey Peninsula providing different challenges. The players come home on Sunday at Pebble Beach and while Taylor was a distinct anomaly last year, there are trends to follow for this week.
GIR is the most telling stat while putting strength has been a more obvious clue in recent renewals. Wind can play a factor at times and Pebble Beach is quite exposed, even in calmer conditions.
Pebble Beach Golf: Betting Tips and Best Odds Conclusion
For all of those reasons, I’m coming back to Spieth as a more likely winner at 10/1 in the Pebble Beach odds with BetFred with a smaller wager on Snedeker at 20/1 with Paddy Power. For the top ten picks this week, Snedeker at 2/1, Rose at 13/8 and Mickelson at 12/5 – all with Paddy Power – can be looked at alongside Walker at 10/3 with Bet365 and it is too tempting to ignore reigning champ Taylor out at 10/1 with Bet365 again.
