This week’s golfing interest comes in the form of The Northern Trust. This tournament takes place between Thursday and Sunday live on Sky Sports. Here are our Northern Trust betting tips.
A Closer Look
Some of the biggest names in the sport have confirmed their attendance. That will ensure a competitive renewal of an always interesting tournament.
Bookmakers have had their say on the outcome; so, we’re delighted to announce there’s plenty of value available to punters looking for a financial interest on the winner of this prize. Brooks Koepka has been chalked up as pre-tournament favourite with most major firms, including 10bet. They are offering a price of 8/1. That fact the shortest price player in the field has such big odds attached proves this weekend will be one for lovers of an outsider.
Take a Chance
It’s no real surprise to see the money men throw the weight of their support behind Koepka. However, this competition will take all the winning, As such, we’d much prefer to take a chance on a player with a bigger price attached. That will help hold our interest going into the weekend and will make our viewing all the more interesting.
We don’t let our eyes stray too far down the list, however. We will have our cash down on second favourite Rory McIlroy who can be backed at 11/1 – best price when playing at Bet365. Each-way backers will get 1/5 the odds a place the best eight finishers; that makes going against the favourite a little easier to do.
McIlroy has been blowing hot and cold so far this summer. He has let backers down a few times of late. However, there’s no doubting his talent. So, the pressure is now on him to prove his worth heading towards a vital stage of the season.
