Irish Open Odds & Betting Tips
The 3 Irish Open is being played at Killarney this week and and, Irish stars aside, this is a fairly weak field. Genie looks through the odds to pick out some value betting tips for the waiting punters.
Unfortunately there is no course form to speak of really. The course has not hosted any recent major events for male professional golfers.
Players to Watch
Looking through the form book it is easy to see why Justin Rose is high up in the betting, coming in at joint second favourite, alongside Graeme McDowell, with both a few points higher than Rory McIlroy.
This week though Genie is going for Harrington. Padraig is not having a good season and his performance at the Open Championship was forgettable. What gives me hope though is that Paidi is outwardly saying that he is playing well and that he thinks things are falling into place. A more honest sportsman you will never find and Padraig will call it in black and white more often than not.
Odds of 20/1 on the player with 25 career wins and about twice as many second places in this company is a must bet for Genie. To put this in perspective, he was 25/1 to win the British Open and goes into next month’s PGA Championship best priced at 33/1 against all of the best players in the world, while only a handful of the world’s top 100 players line up this weekend.
Padraig is not completely without form this season. 3rd place at Doral, 5th at the Travelers Championship, 7th at Quail Hollow and an 8th placed finish at the Transitions were all achieved against markedly better company than he is surrounded by this week. Ladbrokes are offering a standout 20/1 about Paidi getting back into the winners enclosure on home soil.
Jeremy Chapman Tips
This week Chapman is looking only at the Greenbrier Classic. His top tip is Nick Watney (1.5pts e/w @25/1). Next best is Brendon De Jonge (1pt e/w at 50/1) and his other selections include JB Holmes (1pt e/w @ 35/1) and Matt Kuchar (0.75pts e/w @ 20/1).
Steve Palmer Tips
Steve Palmer’s Irish Open tips are:
Top Tip: Rory McIlroy (3pts e/w @ 7/1)
Next Best: Ross Fisher (1.5pts e/w @ 20/1)
Other Selections: Darren Clarke (1pt e/w @40/1) and Shane Lowry (1pt e/w @ 45/1)
Betting Tips Summary
This week at Killarney Genie has only 1 player on the betting list. For a €100 staking plan Genie is suggesting:
€50 e/w on Padraig Harrington at 20/1 with Ladbrokes
Note: Paddy Power are paying 6 places and offering odds of 16/1 about the Dubliner reclaiming a title that he last won in 2007.
