WGC HSBC Champions 2019 Betting Tips

How about Tiger freaking Woods last week? I didn’t handicap the Zozo or even look at it in terms of betting but I am pretty sure I would have not picked Tiger in a month of Sundays.

It’s amusing because if you look around the analysis last week from everyone they were just writing Tiger off big time. Nice to see he’s still got it. And it’s not that people just ignored him – they were actively going out of their way to say why he was a bad pick!

We just had the one pick last week which was George Coetzee in the Portugal Masters. He was a contender for the Top 5 position but ended up ultimately 14th after a break even final round, 3 strokes out of a cashing spot. Considering his performances previously in the tournament it was disappointing he couldn’t finish strong.

This week we’ve got the Bermuda Championship and the WGC HSBC Champions. I’ll only be tipping the WGC HSBC Champions.

WGC HSBC Champions 2019 Betting Tips:

Putting is usually the name of the game here. Matsuyama pops up in the metrics and won here back in 2016 but I just can’t back him. Let me down too much before and the price isn’t there for me despite his form. I do hope he picks up a W here though I used to be a big fan of the guy and when he is motivated, he is excellent.

Xander is another who I really want to back here but just not comfortable with the price. 14/1 is a bit too low considering the field and guys like Rory and Hideki out there.

Honestly it’s quite a tricky one this week. One of those weeks where I don’t have to worry about hacking people off my shortlist as barely any of them made it for one reason or another.

Adam Scott was close to being among the picks this week.

Here’s what I am on:

Jordan Spieth: 35/1. I feel like I can’t back him based on his year. However the dude is motivated as he wants to be a Tiger pick for the Presidents Cup. Pretty sure the only way he can do that is if he wins this event or comes close. I mean it’s motivation enough and maybe that’ll change his game around. Of course in saying that it’s Spieth. We’ll do just a 1/8u to win & E/W.

Sungjae Im: 28/1. Never played this course but on form, pops out in the metrics as someone who could contend. I’m good for 1/4u to win & E/W.

Andrew Putnam: 66/1. Suits this course very well in the metrics and I was happy to see he had a 4th place last year. His form was trending upward going into that tournament and unfortunately that’s not the case here. However he did pull out a couple of good finishes at the Charles Schwab and Scottish Open despite not trending upward so I’m good for 1/4u to win & E/W.
