Puerto Rico Open Betting Tips
I think Jonathan will have a great week from 150/1

Favourite Watch

Amazing value in this category with Gmac favourite with most bookies at 16/1. After top-20 finishes at The Honda and Valspar Graeme was T28 co-hosting the Arnie in Orlando last week. Knows how to win.

Doc's Top Five Best Bets

Wes Bryan 18/1

Okay Wesley slipped a bit last week at Bay Hill but he has been knocking on the door of a Tour win for weeks.  T7 at The Valspar, T4 at The Honda and T4 at The Genesis; this week he is the big fish in a small pond  that only features six players from the World's top 100.

Scott Brown 28/1

Scott missed cuts at Bay Hill and Copperhead but is the horse for the course in Puerto Rico. Winner in 2013 by a shot over Fabian Gomez and three top-10 besides including another T5 last year. T2 recently at Riviera shows he has the game to repeat.

Peter Uihlein 28/1

Plying his trade on the European Tour for the past few seasons and for the life of me I cannot figure out why he hasn't pushed on like friend Brooks Koepka.  Some very solid results already this season with a T5 in Dubai, 4th at the Tshwane and T17 last time out in India (where he should have finished much better were it not for a 76 on Sunday).  Hits it a mile which will come in handy here and has a best of T6 here in 2013.

Fabrizio Zanotti 40/1

What? Fabulous Fabrizio at 40/1? I'll have that all day long! Of course the bookies have their homework done and are looking at the 7,500+  yard par 72 course and Zanotti's poor record from three starts here but he comes in this time off a win at the Maybank Championship and T12 at the WGC Mexico.  Confidence will be surging through the veins!

Graham DeLaet 20/1

Agonized over last spot between Graham and JT Poston but DeLaet knows the course and has never been outside the top 25 from four starts here.  Missed the cut last week in Bay Hill but T22 at the Valspar, 10th in the Honda and T17 at Riviera are very solid results. Would love to see him win after his chipping troubles last year.

Long Odds Glory

Jonathan Byrd 150/1

Jonathan is playing on the Web.com Tour this season but on his day he is as good as anyone.  T5 at the Panama Claro Championship last time out and shot a 62 at the RSM Classic in his last PGA Tour start.  Knows the course well and has three top 20's in this event.  Might be looking at this as a trampoline back to the big time. I'll be having an each way bet myself on this one!
