The Porsche sponsored European Golf Open takes place this weekend with the action getting underway on Thursday. A champion will be crowned at the conclusion of play on Sunday at the Green Eagle Golf Course in Hamburg, Germany. Here are our top European Open 2019 betting tips and predictions.
A Closer Look
The play will take place on Sky Sports and you can bet on a number of exciting markets thanks to the good work done by major bookmakers. Get your stake money down on the outright champion or play one of the many specials, including top 10 finish, to make the cut and even top UK and Ireland player. There’s a bet to suit every pocket.
This tournament has a history that can be traced all the way back to 1978 when the Walton Heath Golf Club in Surrey, England played host. Richard McEvoy won the title last year at Green Eagle when handing in a winning score of 11 under par. That was enough to see him hold off the attentions of Christofer Blomstrand, Allen John and Renato Paratore who pushed the eventual winner hard to the line in what was an enjoyable finish.
A Case for Casey
The current betting has Xander Schauffele as favourite and followers will get their hands on a cracking 13/2 when betting with Ladbrokes but it’s a wide-open market and we’re happy to oppose the favourite with one at a bigger price. We don’t stray too far down the order, however, backing Paul Casey to bank the prize money at 7/1 with William Hill.
Each way players will get their hands on extended place terms of 1/5 the odds a place the best eight finishers with some firms, although 1/4 five is the norm in the betting ring. We’ll take the benefit of an each-way bet.
