It’s September 16th, 2015 and it’s a Wednesday, so you know what that means – it’s our free golf betting tips, and what a great tournament we’ve got in the PGA. It’s the BMW Championship, being held at Conway Farms Golf Club in Illinois, and the list of winners is like a Who’s Who of modern golf. Obviously Tiger Woods has won it, but Rory McIlroy has taken the title, as have the Johnson boys, Dustin and Zach. It’s a seriously stacked field, and it’s interesting to see Jason Day heading the market. Not that we’re surprised, but not that long ago Jordan Speith was being hailed as the saviour of golf, but now he’s out of form slightly and he’s now third favorite behind Day and McIlroy. Amazing how things can change so quickly in the world of golf. We’re sure Speith will recapture the form he showed earlier in the year, of course, but it does make things a bit better when it comes to finding some value.
So, without any more fuss, let’s get onto the free betting tips for the BMW Championship, which starts tomorrow in Illinois.
BMW Championship Betting Tips
First up, we’re going to get Jim Furyk to place in the top five on our side. Furyk has shown some consistent form this year, and this tournament is one that he’s excelled in over the years. He’s had plenty of top ten finishes, a few top fives and was third in 2013, so he comes into form at this time of year. Yes, age is against him, and he’s not at his peak, but you know what, he’s just been really solid this season and it’s beginning to become hard to look past him when we’re looking for value in golf tournaments. Furyk is around 20/1 at the moment, which just screams out value.
Secondly, we’re going to back the winner of the tournament the last time it was held at the Conway Farms Golf Club, and that is Zach Johnson each-way. Seriously, he won the last time out at this course in 2013, and he’s 33/1! Again, if that’s not screaming value, I don’t know what is. He’s another player, like Furyk, who’s had a great season, and his 4th place at the Barclays showed a return to form since his win at the Open. I mean, can you imagine an Open winner being 33/1? It’s madness, so we’re more than happy to take that price each-way and hope Mr Consistency comes back with a vengeance.
Finally, I’m going to allude back to what I wrote at the start. Jordan Speith’s rocky patch? Well, that only gives us value when it comes to backing him, and the fact he’s in double-figures at 10/1 is amazing. We have Jason Day and Rory McIlroy leading the field, so the pressure will be off Speith. He’s taken a break since the Deutsche Bank Championship, which he no doubt needed after such a turbulent season. So back Jordan Speith to win as there’s a hell of a lot of value on this youngster recapturing the form he had earlier on in the year. Yes, it’ll be tough, but is he any less likely than Day or McIlroy to win this? Definitely not. So we’re sniffing out the value in the field and Speith comes out every time.
