Golf Bets: October 16th, 2019


An interesting week last week in the golf.

None of my main picks in the Houston Open cashed although they were just speculative plays.

However I mentioned one Sepp Straka.

Straka was someone that popped up in my metrics as a top pick. Now I don’t just go by the math and numbers, however he was an overwhelming pick from my system.

I liked into him and he had never played this course and also had 5 missed cuts in a row. At 110/1 odds I just couldn’t advise him although I did mention him.

He only bloody placed!

Top 4 with Dead Heat finish so the $125 bet I made recouped about $750. Not too shabby.

I also tackled the Bridgestone Open last week, and was rewarded with this little winner:

Let’s get onto this weeks tips. As a reminder all bets are to win and top 5 unless specified otherwise. If you’re in America split the betting units over to win and top 5. If you’re outside of America it’s an E/W bet.

Golf Bets for October 16th, 2019:

First up is the CJ Cup 2019. If you are looking for a Sepp Straka like bet, Wyndham Clark is the man. 200/1.

My actual bets are all small ones. Rafa Cabrera Bello is the first one. He’s one of those guys I didn’t realize was playing so well until I looked at his form and watched some of him over the last little while. Solid play and I think he pulls out a win or top place sometime soon.

Luke List at 100/1 is one I dig. Getting his form going again, played well at this course two years ago, stands out in the metrics.

Gotta go with Phil Mickelson. 80/1? Sure. Not just that but with Mickelson there’s some tournaments where everything seems to just connect right and this is one of those tournaments.

Tyrell Hatton at 45/1 is a decent wee pick. Looking good lately and played well here. Actually if you look back at last years tournament he finished really strong. Gotta be fresh in his mind that.

Ian Poulter isn’t in form really but his form at this course is excellent and he stands out in the metrics. I hear he isn’t too chuffed at the Italian Open outing so expect him to be motivated here.

Next we’ve got the Open de France.

Surely Marcus Kinuit comes storming out of the gate. Dude should have won last year. He’s going to be motivated for this one. Honestly his form since then has not been that great either so I think this is a tournament he’s had marked on his calendar to get back on track.

I dig Callum Shinkwin who has played well at this course and is playing some good golf right now. 60/1 is a nice price.

Last one for the Open de France is Matthew Southgate. One where I will be very disappointed if he doesn’t show up.

I’ve got two plays in the Buick LPGA Shanghai which are Shanshan Feng to win and Top 5 and Nasa Hotaka to win.

Let’s make it rain.
