Scottish Open Betting Tips
Last week we were singing our betting tips from the rooftops, knowing we had a gem! Those of you who cashed in on the Matthew Southgate tip off will no doubt be looking for another inspired choice at 400/1. Well, our Scottish Open betting tips bring a few different factors into play this week.
While we are back at another links course, Dundonald is quite different to Portstewart. Designed by Kyle Phillips, the course has similarities to another of his famous designs at Kingsbarns. While the weather doesn’t look like it will be great, you can always expect the scoring to be excellent around this course.
In recent weeks, there have been a few players on a run of form that has caught our eye. We don’t necessarily have them in our minds for this week, but it will be interesting to keep an eye out for form going into Birkdale next week. It’s worth noting that playing the Scottish Open has proved very useful for recent Open Champions. One man we won’t be shy against backing next week is Sergio who is currently priced at 20/1 – our advice: pile in on that now!
To this week:
Alex Noren 16/1 – Stake £10 e/w Potential return £220
Not exactly a left-field pick going for the defending champion. Yes, he is one of the best players in the world, but he also loves Kyle Phillips designed golf courses having won the British Masters at The Grove and shot multiple low rounds at Kingsbarns, including 64 last time out. One more gem – every European Tour Event that we have placed a simulator at, Noren has won!
Ross Fisher 33/1 – Stake £10 e/w Potential return £432.50
Fisher has 6 top 10’s in his last 8 starts. His current run of form dates back to a T2 at the Dunhill Links and proves he can go well in this format of the game. He loves a low scoring week, and in all honestly won’t be getting our attention next week but we think he will go really well at Dundonald.
Andy Sullivan 45/1 – Stake £10 e/w Potential return £582.50
His odds may have drifted a little from last week when we backed him, but what we saw encourages us. He was strutting around with a bit of his old swagger. His driving has been on the up this season and even though there might not be as much emphasis on that this week, we feel like he is due to get back in the mix.
Richie Ramsay 66/1 – Stake £10 e/w Potential return £845
Whether you can strictly say that he was in contention last week is debatable, but a 2nd place is impressive nonetheless. He’s the first of two Scots we’ve gone for this week and will have a good feeling coming back to a tournament he came 6th in last year.
Ryan Fox 80/1 – Stake £5 e/w Potential return £510
It’s a genuine surprise that his odds are as long as this given his recent form. Given that he is coming off the back of 4th and 6th these last 2 weeks and also performed admirably at The Open, he deserves some love. He pumps it off the tee and should be able to eat up the par 5’s.
Stephen Gallacher 150/1 – Stake £5 e/w Potential return £947.50
He loves a bit of rain doesn’t he? There were enough encouraging signs last week to make him standout at 150/1. Our man on the ground up there this week says that he has never seen Stevie G hit the ball so well. He was apparently putting on a clinic on the practice putting green, holing putts from everywhere. Avoid Gallacher at your peril!
