Turkish Open Preview, Tips & Guide To Best Odds
While many of the big names may be missing from the schedule as we head into winter, their absence leaves some open fields and that can lead to excellent value in the betting odds markets, writes Matt. The Turkish Open is a good case in point and here we have a brand new venue on the European Tour to make things even more exciting.
In theory this is a tournament for the top 60 players in the Race to Dubai but unfortunately, security scares have led to some high profile withdrawals. In fact, only two players from the top 11 are scheduled to tee off at the Regnum Carya Golf and Spa Resort but the favourite is one of the most consistent players on the tour right now.
Bernd Wiesberger comes here attached to a price of 12/1 for the win and you can pick that up with most outlets including Bet365 and William Hill. The Austrian was way back in 35th at the WGC in Shanghai at the weekend but previous finishes of 2nd, 7th and 2nd, see him at the summit of the odds for Turkey.
Wiesberger has no great record at this particular event but did finish eighth on this course on the Challenge Tour in 2010. He is in form but wins are rare in a ten-year professional career so a top ten may be a better option at an admittedly short industry best of 6/5 with BetVictor.
Pundits are taking a little more interest in Andy Sullivan whose most recent outing ended with a second placed finish at the Portugal Masters. He is 14/1 in the outright winner betting market with Bet365 and Paddy Power and having claimed that second place despite a woeful putting display, an improvement with the flat stick could put him in contention.
Tyrell Hatton, with a win and a top ten in his last three outings is attracting attention at a win price of 16/1 with Bet365 and Coral, as is Danny Willett, who showed a return to form in Italy before a poor 75th in Shanghai. Willett is commonly at 25/1 in the outrights but will tempt many at an excellent best of 33/1 with Stan James.
It’s tough to read anything into previous results here and in just three short years, Victor Dubuisson has come away with the trophy on two occasions. An integral part of the Ryder Cup team in 2014, the Frenchman’s slump sees him out at 100/1 for the win with Stan James or 9/1 for a top ten with the same bookmaker.
That previous record could see some interest in Victor but remember, this is a different course and form warrants only a small punt in the top ten market at best.
Elsewhere, what of Padraig Harrington, the man who edged out Sullivan in Portugal last month? At 45 and with his best years some way in the past, that win was the Irishman’s first on the European Tour since 2008. However, there have been triumphs on the PGA and in Asia since that time and we know that Harrington is capable of either slumping beyond the cut or coming up with something special.
For real value however, I like the look of Marc Warren even though you can’t say that his last four performances have been anywhere near outstanding. 12, 22, 5 and 20 are consistent however, and the Scot has the game for this course. Warren is at 45/1 for the win with Stan James and Betfred and is my tip for a top ten at 4/1 with Stan James – although you can be braver and back the top five market at an industry best of 9/1 with Stan James and BetVictor.
The Regnum Carya Golf and Spa Resort is a Par 71 course at just over 7,100 yards and is said to be inspired by the heathland courses in the UK such as Sunningdale. It does, however, have lightning fast greens so may be better suited to anyone with a decent record on the PGA tour.
Ultimately, it could all come down to target golf and putting so Andy Sullivan, who will have surely been working hard since that Portugal Masters showing, is a strong tip. Marc Warren for a top ten is another option in what should be an intriguing four days of golf.
