2019 Hero World Challenge Betting Tips

Albany Golf Club, Nassua, The Bahamas
Purse: $3,500,000
Defending Champion: Jon Rahm

Favourite Watch

Defending champ Jon Rahm is an unbackable 4/1 across most of the bookies and justifiably so after coming back fresh off a six week break to capture the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai.  What is worrying in the limited field is that the next four in the betting, Thomas Schauffele Cantlay and Tiger are ALL at odds below 10/1. Crazy!

Best Each Way Bets

Henrik Stenson 30/1

2018 hasn't been the best of seasons for Henrik Stenson so perhaps a "lower" key event like this would help dress it up a little.  T44 in Dubai where it all went wrong on Saturday, but three top-20's in his last five starts is encouraging for the greens in regulation king.  Solo fourth here last year and second in 2016.

Patrick Reed 20/1

T28 in Dubai last time out and in truth the tournament for Reed was over after an opening 74 on Thursday.  But top-10's in Turkey and China before that impressed for a player straddling two Tours and a long season.  Scrambling is always key at Albany and Reed possess that skill in spades. Sure to be sharp also with the Presidents Cup on the horizon. Captain America and all that!

Gary Woodland 20/1

The US Open Champion understandably struggled in the weeks following but Gary Woodland has always been known as a late season performer and proved to be again with top-5 finishes at the CJ Cup and Zozo Championship.  Only his second time playing the event, Gary was T8 on his debut last year and has the power to capitalise on the par fives.

Justin Rose 16/1

Has a home in Albany if that can contribute any advantage this week.  20th at the Tour Championship and 21st in Turkey and the worrying trend for Rose is that he's starting great but not playing capitulating on Saturday and Sunday.  T5 here in 2017 and solo third in 2018 and perhaps home advantage will lead to a better weekend.  Class is permanent.
