Welcome back to my weekly golf betting tips page. We have two big events happening this week, the BMW Championship on the PGA Tour and the ISPS Handa on the DP World Tour. I am feeling very confident about my betting tips this week and I’m advising both singles and cross-doubles across the board.
Admittedly, it hasn’t been the strongest couple of weeks for my selections, but this week I’m hoping we can get straight back on the leaderboard. Overall, things have gone very well this year and we are still over 800 points in profit to level stakes, but I’d really like us to make it over the 1000 mark before the end of the season.
This week I’ve selected Bet Victor, who have one of my favourite deals. If you bet just £5, you’ll get £20 in free bets in return, which is perfect to jump on all eight of my golf betting tips for this week’s events.
This week I am bringing you three betting tips for this event, which is the second playoff for the FedEx Cup series. Here, the Top 50 in the rankings are preparing to tee off in the BMW Championship over at the Olympia Fields Country Club.
My strongest selection for this week’s BMW Championship is world number five Viktor Hovland. I have put him up for nearly all four of the Majors this season, so that tells you how highly I rate him and it would be no surprise if he were to win one of the big prizes in the FedEx playoffs.
He has had a decent season, without necessarily setting the world on fire, and has been slightly unlucky not to pick up a few more wins from his eight Top 10s. I think he is gearing up for another win and it might just happen this week.
His iron play has just improved no end and his putting is very underrated too. Viktor Hovland is also my early banker to pick up a Major next year, so you can tell I’m pretty sweet on his chances here this week and he is my strongest betting tip for this week’s BMW Championship.
Selection number two for this week’s PGA Tour event is going to be Cam Young. He has had a fine season without winning, with five Top 10s to his name, and he showed some excellent form last week at St Jude’s, so I think Cam Young could be in for a good week.
It is surely only a matter of time before he gets his first win on Tour and it would be no surprise to see it happen in one of the biggest events of the season. He has finished in the Top 10 of three Majors last season and did the same in the Open Championship a couple of weeks ago, so he is a regular on the leaderboard.
He isn’t at all fazed by these big events, he has a nice soft draw and is very consistent with the dispersion of his irons as well. Provided Cam Young is rolling his putter well this week, I think he is really good value at 40/1.
Keegan Bradley is my ‘dark horse’ if you like for this week’s BMW Championship. He is a six-time winner on the PGA Tour and has been playing some of the best golf of his career this season, including two PGA Tour wins. He won the Travellers and the Zozo this season, but also has five other Top 10s to his name.
He is either hot or cold on the golf course, but when he is hot, he really can go on a run with birdies and I just think this week he could be worth a squeak. Keegan Bradley is a very good iron player, and really good with his short game all round, so I feel if he is in right frame of mind this week then he could go very well indeed.
I am really excited this week, because the DP World Tour is finally back in action, with the ISPS Handa World Invitational, after being three weeks off schedule. There are many players here that are in with a chance, but I’ve narrowed it down to five of the best for you.
Adrian Otaegui is my main selection for the ISPS Handa this week, as a fair few of the big names are missing here. Otaegui has been enjoying a solid season on the DPWT and has four DP World titles to his name. He improved quite a bit towards the back end of the season, so it’s no surprise to see him turning up here in search of another win.
He was very unlucky in the KLM Open, where he was solid throughout and only found Pablo Larrazabal too good that week. Not that we were too bothered though, after backing Larrazabal at 55/1. However, there is no Larrazabal this week, so Adrian Otaegui is one of my favourites for good reason, not to mention the fact that I think he will have a very solid week
Ewen Ferguson is one of the standout names in this week’s ISPS Handa and is a fan favourite on the DP World Tour. He has had a really good season consisting of five Top 10s and is a seriously good ball striker. Ewen’s main attribute and the one that always stands out for me, is his iron play, he is just laser sharp with irons on approach play.
Thanks to his iron skills, he gives himself plenty of Birdie opportunities and otherwise doesn’t have too many negatives in his game. He has two DP World titles to his name, both coming last season and he’s likely to pick up another before the end of this season. He also finished fourth in the British Masters and twelfth in the Scottish Open, so I find it hard to see how Ewen Ferguson isn’t in with a big chance here.
James Morrison made it clear he has been really enjoying his golf this year and that shines through in his game. He seems full of confidence and has been playing very well indeed recently. He has slipped just outside of the Top 500 in the world, but make no mistake, he is a very talented player on his day.
Morrison already has two DP World Tour titles under his belt and I think his course form in the Soudal Open, where he finished tied for seventh, could work out really well here. He is flying back from the US to compete, after playing really well in the Barracuda, finishing in a tie for 25th place. The field this week has a lot of new players on the scene, so the experience that James Morrison has could really make a big impact this week
You may not have heard of Rasmus Neergaard-Petersen before, but you would be forgiven for that, as he only finished his collegiate career at Oklahoma State in June. That said, he looked surprisingly comfortable among some of the best players in the world on day two of his DP World Tour debut, where he carded seven birdies.
He did have the option to turn pro sooner, but decided to hold off until he had completed his education, meanwhile mopping up wins in the collegiate ranks. That was a very smart and mature move and his patience may be about to pay off. He is trying to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Viktor Hovland, Rickie Fowler and Wyndham Clark, who emerged from the same golf academy, and Rasmus has made a big impression in his three DP World Tour starts to date.
In a recent interview, he said he feels at home here on Tour, as he knows a lot of the guys from his junior years. He also mentioned that his best attribute is his iron play, which is evident when you look at his swing. He is just inside the Top 1000 in the world, but is sure to be climbing to the higher ranks over the next season. Rasmus Neergaard-Petersen comes here as a very confident youngster and in a slightly diluted field, he could be a really sharp bet at 80/1.
John Axelsen is another up and coming star and he has been backed plenty of times by various tipsters throughout the season. It’s pretty obvious to see why, as he has started carding some very good scores indeed and with a little bit more experience, he is surely going to get his first win on Tour sooner or later.
He does already have four wins on the Nordic Tour circuit and grew up playing Junior Ryder Cup golf with the Hojgaard twins, so he was already well-established prior to getting to the DP World Tour. I couldn’t back Neergaard-Petersen and leave Axelsen out, they both had to go in this week and I think we go in with a real chance with both of these Danish superstars on our side. John Axelsen has already clocked up a Top 10 finish in the last couple of months, he’s a classy player and there’s no reason why he shouldn’t play very well here.
