Doc's Top 5 Long Odds Only Betting Tips

Rafa Cabrera Bello 66/1

 The Spaniard comes here smiling after a T9 in Scotland, T4 in Ireland and T3 at the BMW International in Germany.  That's down to a marked improvement in his driving accuracy and putting, the two key stats needed to win in Portrush.  Add to that he was T2 behind Jamie Donaldson at the 2012 Irish Open in Portrush and there's a good case to be made for Rafa.

Eddie Pepperell 70/1

Eddie Pepperell comes into his third Open in fine form after a T4 at the Irish Open and T2 at the British Masters both on links.  T6 last year in Carnoustie and as his twitter followers will attest to Eddie has the character not to let the enormity of the occasion get to him too much. 66/1 are great odds.

Thorbjorn Olesen 100/1

I remember Thorbjorn Olesen shooting a 66 in a storm on the Saturday of the 2012 Irish Open at Royal Portrush and its confidence inspiring memories like those that drive guys like Thorbjorn on.  An impressive T12 at the 2018 Open Championship and if he can find the fairways this week has each way chances with bookies paying up to top 8 after good showings in Ireland and Germany.

Erik Van Rooyen 100/1

I've been flying the flag for Erik for the past few weeks and while he's had flashes of brilliance he just hasn't he the highs. Yet.  T17 at last years Open where he hit more fairways than anyone in the field and given the experience he has gained since then, he can contend here.

Chez Reavie 150/1

What about a lefty at 150/1? Chez Reavie scored a brilliant T3 at the US Open then went on to win at The Travelers by a country mile.  Key to his game is incredible accuracy off the tee and I'm betting he'll surprise you this week.
