Guide To WGC Mexico Championship Golf Odds and Betting Preview
The PGA Tour slips south of the border this week with Mexico City hosting the first of this year’s World Golf Championships, writes Matt. The very nature of the event – only the world’s top 50 golfers qualify – means that we have the strongest field of 2017 and some in-form players at the head of the WGC Mexico betting odds market.
It’s a tournament that’s been dominated since the turn of the century by one man, but Tiger isn’t here so the betting starts with the new World Number One.
How The Favourites in WGC Mexico Odds Stack Up
Dustin Johnson took over at the top of the rankings with a win in the Genesis Open and having sat out the Honda Classic at the weekend, he is nicely rested and an obvious favourite at an industry best of 7/1 with Ladbrokes and Coral.
Just behind is Jordan Spieth, also a winner in February, who can be backed at a best of 9/1 with Stan James. There is little to choose between the two in terms of current form but it’s clearly worth noting that Johnson is a recent winner here, having taken the event in 2015.
Spieth is the value option however and he currently ranks first in Greens in Regulation to Johnson’s third, which could be key over the course of the week.
On The Heels Of The Leaders
Rory McIlroy (pictured) returns after his latest injury concern but is it too soon to invest? The Northern Irishman takes the third favourite’s berth at 12/1 in the WGC Mexico Championship odds with Paddy Power and Betfred. As we’ve seen recently with Jason Day, it’s not easy to hit winning form straight away.
Rory is likely to be getting in the groove for the Masters but one man who definitely needs a second look is FedEx leader Hideki Matsuyama. The Japanese carried his late 2016 form into the New Year and is listed in the outrights at a best of 14/1 with SkyBet.
Other strong options in the chasing pack include our most recent PGA winner Rickie Fowler at a best of 20/1 with Paddy Power and Betfred while Justin Rose is also being talked up after a decent start to 2017. Rose is at 22/1 with Bet365 and Boylesports and unlike Fowler he hasn’t won this year but he is a previous winner of this event and actually edges the American in this week’s Power Rankings.
Outsiders With a WGC Chance
Adam Scott is the defending champion and was in a rich run of form when he claimed the trophy a year ago. The Aussie headed the market for last week’s Honda Classic but didn’t really justify that lofty position and that’s why I’ve included him in the outside punts at 25/1 with BetVictor and SkyBet.
One man I overlooked last week was Tyrell Hatton, purely on the basis of the fact that he was debuting at the PGA National. Ultimately he tied for fourth and while the Englishman is 50/1 with Paddy Power in the outright winner betting odds, he is our first Top Ten pick of the week at a best of 9/2 with Paddy Power again.
Elsewhere, there is a lot of talk around Louis Oosthuizen who enters the outrights at 50/1 with Bet365 and Paddy Power. The theory is that the South African is right at the top when it comes to playing narrow, tree lined courses such as the one that we will find this week. He has no great form so far this season but the theory holds up and once again, 9/2 with Paddy Power on a top ten finish could prove a sound investment.
Elsewhere, Martin Kaymer was another, among a clutch of players, to register a tied fourth at the weekend and the German is just showing hints of his best form. Kaymer is quoted at an industry best of 55/1 with Paddy Power and Betfred to win on Sunday and is another for the top ten list at 4/1 with Bet365.
WGC Mexico Course and Trends To Look For
The Club de Golf Chapultepec in Mexico City is a Par 71 at 7,330 yards and as we’ve already discussed, key qualities include Greens in Regulation while this is a tight course that requires accuracy off the tee.
Previous winners on different courses can therefore be disregarded to an extent and that’s why I’m not considering the likes of three-time runner up Bubba Watson. For me, Jordan Spieth is looking ominous and finally seems to have got over his Augusta nightmare of 2016.
So, it’s Spieth for the win at 9/1 in the WGC odds with Stan James with Hatton, Kaymer and Oosthuizen the best of the top ten picks.
