The Market Leaders
Dustin Johnson is unsurprisingly heading the betting for this tournament, as the American superstar looks to bag his second victory of 2018, and he is a clear 5/1 favourite with Coral Bookmakers to land this prize. He was a fine winner of the Sentry Tour Of Champions a couple of weeks ago, and he showed last year when finishing second to the aforementioned Fleetwood that he will be a huge force in this event, and is the one to beat.
Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy are the next pair in the betting, and the European Ryder Cup duo are 8/1 shots with Ladbrokes, and of that pair the former has been a man in form over the last few months, and could be one of the main challengers for Johnson, while Henrik Stenson is another major European challenger, and he is 18/1 with Betfair Sportsbook.
Fleetwood, who won this title last year with a final score of -18 is a 20/1 shot to retain his crown, and having beaten Johnson by a solitary shot last year will aim to emulate that performance, while the likes of Paul Casey (20/1) and Branden Grace (22/1) are just another brace of prominent figures in the betting.
It really is hard to look away from Dustin Johnson, who has been the most consistent performer on the circuit, and with some good form in this competition he has to be a man to be with, and even though the 5/1 looks short it is certainly a solid win bet.
Johnson already has won tournament victory to his name this year, and he can make it two before the end of January by going one better than last year, as he attempts to turn the form around with Fleetwood, who lifted the trophy 12 months ago.
Tip #1: Dustin Johnson win @ 5/1 with Coral.
Martin Kaymer is a three-times winner of this event, and the German star is a major each-way contender at 30/1 with Paddy Power. He holds the record for this tournament, having won in 2011 with -24, and having finished fourth in the 2017 tournament is one that can relish a return to the venue, and is our second selection.
Tip #2: Martin Kaymer (each way) @ 30/1 with Paddy Power.
Pablo Larrazabal is another former winner of this event, as the Spaniard was victorious in 2014, and he showed last year when finishing joint-second with Johnson that this is a course he can flourish at, and the 150/1 with Betfred bookmakers is a sensational price for a man that could quite easily grab a place.
Tip #3: Pablo Larrazabal (each way) @ 150/1 with Betfred.
