WGC Bridgestone Invitational

Dustin Johnson

Firestone Country Club is hosting the WGC Bridgestone Invitational once again which is a course that will suit long straight hitters. I am surprised that Shane Lowry and Rory McIlroy have opted for the French Open as they are past winners here.

Jordan Spieth

He played some excellent golf in the Dean & Deluca Invitaional three tournaments back, especially the final round to win by knocking in twenty footers for fun, chipped in twice and only had nine putts in the back nine. But Jordan has flopped in his last two outings finishing T37 & T57.

I can’t really back him for an outright win at 12/1 or back him for a top five finish at 5/2 as he is lacking consistency. But I will go for a less riskier option of trading him instead as he is very capable of turning it on at any moment, hopefully it’s this weekend!

Back Spieth at 13.50

Lay Spieth at 10.00

Jason Day

Jason has won three tournaments this year which is quite impressive considering he hasn’t played that many times. But in his last three tournament he has managed one round in each of 76, 74 &  73 which is putting me off him this week. Also at 11/2 there isn’t much room to trade him either, so I will give him a miss this week.

Day – No bet

Dustin Johnson

Finally I got caught out laying Dusty last week in the US Open at 5/2 in running which was inevitable at some point but I won’t let that put me off taking him on again this weekend. Shane Lowry was four shot clear going into the final round and gifted the US Open to Dustin.

This course will suit him as he is hitting it long and accurate off of the tee but his putting is his weakest link. His tee to green play is the reason why he has had five top five finishes in his last seven tournaments and his putting is why he has only won one of them.

You can get 15/8 for a top five finish for him which looks very tempting but I will stick to laying him in running at a lesser price instead.

Lay Johnson in running at 4.00 (3/1)

French Open – Outright Win Lay

The French Open Favourite – Rory McIlroy

The Albatross course at Le Golf National has been the home for the French Open for years and will be hosting the 2018 Ryder Cup too. However there have been plenty of changes to the course this year and it has only recently re-opened after 10 months of improvements.

Rory McIlroy is the 9/2 tournament favourite with his nearest rival in the betting being Martin Kaymer at 16/1. I for one don’t think that this tournament should be as one sided as the betting suggests.`

Incidently I will also be betting in the WGC Bridgestone Invitational in the States in a separate post.

Rory McIlroy

Rory hasn’t shot under 70 in his first round in 5 of his last 6 tournaments, which has cost him dearly. Yes he won the Irish Open with -2 in his first round and was excellent in the final four holes, but that to me that was a one off performance and not the norm. He also missed the cut in last weeks US Open which is not a good sign for Rory backers coming into this tournament.

With the new course improvements he is going to have to be accurate off of the tee which he hasn’t been in recent months. Also  and his putting under 10 feet isn’t as good as it was, so I will be taking him on at this price from the start.

however I can’t ignore the market and will back Rory for a top five finish as a little bit of cover plus the rest of the field are a little bit weak.

Wimbledon – Outright Wins/Trades

Yes it’s that time of year when one of your social media friends thinks that they are being really original by posting something like “If Andy Murray wins Wimbledon he will be English and if he loses he will be Scottish!”

It’s been dome to death and they are always the last to know!

finalists wimbledon 2013 2016 djokovic and murray
2013 Finalists – Can Murray Win Wimbledon Again?

Andy won Queens again coming into this tournament and Novak beat Andy in the last grand slam in Roland Garros. I expect one of these to make the final and go on to win, but which one that is the question?

A Murray and Djokovic final is 7/4 but what happens if one doesn’t make it! By trading them if one doesn’t make the final you have a very good chance of still making money as the other player has an excellent chance of winning!

Back Djokovic To Win At 5/6 (3 points) 1.84

Back Murray To Win At 10/3 (2 points) 4.40

Further lay bets will follow during the tournament ideally in the semi finals in a separate post. However if one of these doesn’t make the final I will let the remaining trade run.

NB – lay means not to win.
