This week in the European Tour, it is the Omega European Masters – more commonly known as the Swiss Open. It is played at the iconic Crans-sur-Sierre course; an absolutely phenomenal course and a real fun one to play it.
It gained a lot of notoriety in 2006 when Michelle Wie played at it. She finished dead last.
It’s a great course that in recent years has been dominated by Thomas Bjorn. The Dane has won it twice in recent times; 2011 and 2013. Both performances very impressive.
Last years winner was the American, David Lipsky.
Here are the betting odds for the Omega European Masters:
Swiss Open 2015 Betting Odds:

Some interesting odds for sure in what is a solid enough field. Let’s get to the tips:
Swiss Open Betting Tip #1: Tommy Fleetwood
Tommy Fleetwood was one of our betting tips last week in the British Open. He didn’t deliver unfortunately – but we think there’s still more to come from Tommy and will back him again this week for a full unit.
He has had solid results here in the past. His last two tournaments here have seen him come 9th and 5th. This is a tournament that Tommy enjoys. Going back and watching the last couple of years you can see that Fleetwood has fun at this course. And sometimes – that’s all it takes.
We’ll be backing Tommy Fleetwood at 20/1.
Swiss Open Betting Tip #2: Jamie Donaldson
We’ll go with a quarter unit bet on Jamie Donaldson. 22/1 odds make it a little bit tricker to bet bigger on him – as much as we’d want to.
Donaldson has been in great form here. In recent years he has had 3 top 10 finishes. Also after a bad bout of form he’s made the last 3 cuts and finished in the top 50s.
The bookies are wise to him though hence the short odds at 22/1. Despite that we think there is just enough value and with him starting to heat up – that this should be a bet.
Swiss Open Betting Tip #3: Victor Dubuisson
He’s been playing more European events this season, and that’s where we’re seeing Dubuisson excel. It’s been nice to see as he has had a lot of relaxed play and was 10th at the Scottish Open and 12th at the French Open.
We’re getting better odds on him due to the majors he has played – he’s looked very poor at The Open, the US Open, The Masters and the WGC events. But there is no doubting his skill, and a 3rd place finish in 2013 shows he knows how to handle this course.
We’ll go with a quarter unit bet on Dubuisson as we’re not full confident and wish the odds were slightly higher.
