The 2019 renewal of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship keeps punters busy this week. This competition remains one of the richest tournaments on the tour. Ss you might expect, the top players in the world are in attendance. Here are our top Alfred Dunhill Links Championship betting tips and predictions.
A Closer Look
St Andrews, affectionately known as the home of golf, provides the backdrop. All armchair fans can follow the action live on Sky Sports. Play gets started on Thursday and a champion will be crowned on Sunday afternoon. So, who will come out on top? Bookmakers believe they have the answer and have priced up a market. We’re delighted to report there’s plenty of value available to those willing to work for it, not to mention an abundance of exciting markets.
Rory McIlroy has been marked up as ante-post favourite with Ladbrokes rating as the most generous firm on the Northern Irishman, making a market best price 6/1 available. That sets him ahead of nearest rival John Rahm at 7/1 (William Hill). Following this is Justin Rose who makes up the top three at 14/1 – top price at Bet365.
Can Rory Stay on Form?
We can understand where traders are coming from when throwing the weight of their support behind Rors. However, he has been blowing hot and cold of late. As such, we’d much prefer to take on the jolly with one at a slightly better price. The man to carry our support is John Rahm. He has been knocking on the door of late and, if following the clues of recent weeks, he rates as an easy option. Those after a bigger price can take advantage of the eight places offered by some bookmakers.
