2018 WGC Mexico Betting Tips

Favourite Discussion

Defending champ Dustin Johnson is super tight odds at 15/2 but I like the look of Jon Rahm at 12/1.  He putted great here last year but mucked up at the end for a T3.  A little older and a little wiser this time around he can get it done.

Doc's Top 5 Each Way Bets At WGC Mexico

Phil Mickelson 22/1

Phil returns after a week off and he'll be hoping to get right back up to the speed which has brought him a T5 in Phoenix, T2 at Pebble  and T6 last time out Riviera.  Lefty's 2018 putting splits are off the charts, he's driving it long and he's scrambling great again.  I never "fully expect" Phil to perform but let's just say all the stars are aligned this week. T7 here at Chapultepec last year.

Tommy Fleetwood 18/1

No surprise here really.  The Abu Dhabi early season winner found his PGA Tour legs last week with a solo 4th at Palm Beach Gardens with all around excellent stats (T11 Fairways, T14 Greens, T18 Putting)that suggest even greater things are to come. Solo second here last year. A no brainer.

Alex Noren 25/1

Alex is on a brilliant run of form since a T2 at The Farmers and contended all the way at The Honda last week before settling for solo third.  In his last four starts the Swede has not been outside the top-20 in driving accuracy, nor outside the top-15 in greens hit and his par-5 scoring stats rank with the elite.  His T55 in Mexico last year came after a MC in Perth in a poor run of form that's totally forgotten about now.

Patrick Cantlay 33/1

Impressed me with a T4 at Riviera hitting 52 greens in regulation, something that would be very welcome this week. Already a winner on the wraparound at The Shriners.  Looks for all the world like a man who can win a WGC.

Joost Luiten 100/1

Absolute lunacy that Joost is out at 100/1 this week and I'd be watching closely to see if the bookies trim his odds after this post.  The Dutchman is coming off a win last time out in Oman and finished T25 at Chapultepec last year when he hit 45 fairways and 58 greens in regulation; topping the field in both stats.  If he repeats that and gets the putter going on the on the fast Poa-bentgrass greens in Mexico he will contend.

Long Odds Glory Shot

Xander Schauffele  at 70/1 drives it long (not always straight mind) and is a very solid putter and after T9 at the Genesis last time out gets the nod from me!
