Jon Rahm Is A Red Hot Favourite For The Open De Espana

Following the drama and excitement of The Masters, normal service is resumed on the European Tour from Thursday as the Open de Espana returns from a one-year hiatus to take centre stage at the Centro Nacional de Golf in Madrid...

Tips Jorge Campillo (each way) - Tied 5th    Best Bet @ 40 / 1 P
Gregory Bourdy (each way) - T46 @ 225 / 1  

Rahm Is A Red Hot Favourite

The Centro Nacional will take on hosting duties of the Open de Espana for the first time since 2007 and it is a venue that the bookmakers' favourite Jon Rahm knows well. The 23-year-old has enjoyed a remarkable rise, winning twice on the European Tour, and he returns to a course where he played regularly as a youngster.

Course knowledge will assist a player who makes his first appearance as a professional in Madrid but the world no.4 is undoubtedly the best player in the field and it is difficult to oppose him, even at 4/1 (Paddy Power). That price is a bit short for our purposes though and we prefer to hunt for a bit of each-way value...

The Home Contingent

Rafa Cabrera-Bello is another Spaniard who will attract interest after racking up three top-tens this year and he is a 14/1 second-favourite, albeit that is another very short price for a player who has just the three European Tour titles to his name.

Pablo Larrazabal has won four times on the European Tour and is available at a slightly more appealing 20/1 after racking up three top-five finishes in his past four starts.

Jorge Campillo has been quietly going about his business too as he picked up a fourth runner-up finish of his career at the Maybank Championship, which is one of four top-fifteen efforts for the year. The 31-year-old enjoys playing on home soil as he has twice finished in the top-seven of the Open de Espana and he tied 10th when the Madrid Masters was held at Centro Nacional de Golf in 2009.

Campillo offers each-way value at 40/1 with PaddyPower.com.

The Best Of The Rest

Andrew Johnston returns as defending champion after he won at Valderrama in 2016 and he was runner-up in India on his last start. 'Beef' can be backed at 28/1 with Boylesports.

Finally, Gregory Bourdy's form this year doesn't provide great confidence but he is a player who looks decent value at a massive price in what is a very weak field. The Frenchman has won five times as a professional and he tends to enjoy his visits to Spain as he has finished in the top-21 of the leaderboard in eight of his last ten appearances at the Open de Espana, including a tie for 8th at the Centro Nacional de Golf in 2007. He could give us a run for our money from a huge 225/1 this week.
