There are several golf fixtures taking place from Thursday onwards, meaning followers of the sport and bettors won’t be short of an interest. You can keep up to speed with the PGA Tour and European Tour live on Sky Sports. Here are our top Italian Open betting tips and predictions.
A Closer Look
Bookmakers also serve up an abundance of betting and it’s possible to ramp up your interest with a wager on the outcome. Have your say on the winner of the Houston Open or Italian Open. You’ll be delighted to learn there’s value available in both competitions with lots of big prices there for the taking. Bet on the competition winner, top 10 finish, to make the cut, match bets, top UK player and plenty more besides.
Traders have had their say on the Italian Open and that’s where we focus our attention. Paul Casey is your 9/1 favourite there and that price is available with most bookmakers, including Bet365. We can understand where the money men are coming from with that one but would much prefer an each-way bet on a bigger price selection.
A Home Advantage for Molinari
The player to carry our stake money this weekend is Francesco Molinari who will be popular with those in attendance and should give an improved effort with the backing of the support. He’s more than good enough to go close and we’re certain followers will, at the very least, get a run for their money into the latter stages. There’s a cracking 16/1 top price available at Bet365 on Molinari and that’s more than enough to get our attention.
Each-way players will benefit from 1/4 the odds five places with most bookies. A few push that out to 1/5 the odds the best eight but their prices are shorter. Make sure you do your sums before snatching at extra places each-way.
