Tom Lewis Offers Each Way Value In The Betting For The Portugal Masters

The eleventh edition of the Portugal Masters is live on Sky Sports this week and we will be looking for some value in the field as they prepare to take on the Arnold Palmer-designed Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course in Vilamoura...

The Head Of The Market

It is Thomas Pieters, the three-time European Tour winner, who heads to Portugal as a 14/1 favourite and he obviously has the tools to blow this field away but he has no sort of form behind him since finishing 4th at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational, with his past three European Tour starts yielding a best finish of 66th.

Shane Lowry is next best at 16/1 and the 2012 Portugal Masters winner returns to the scene of his first win as a professional (Lowry won the 2009 Irish Open as an amateur). Lowry arrives off the back of a tie for 7th at the Wyndham Championship and he is the pick of the leading three in the market, albeit his price is still a bit short for a tournament that has witnessed its fair share of surprises.

Andy Sullivan is 18/1 after going wire-to-wire to win the 2015 Portugal Masters before finishing runner-up to Padraig Harrington twelve months ago, although he does arrive off the back of successive missed cuts this time.

Each-Way Value

We prefer to find a bit of each-way value in this field and Tom Lewis is well worth a look at 66/1 as he continues his recent resurgence. The 26-year-old has endured a tough time of it since 2011 when he burst on to the scene at The Open Championship before winning the Portugal Masters in only his third European Tour start.

Lewis enjoys this course and it would be dangerous to read too much into this missed cut at the KLM Open last time out as he had been in good form before that, recording five top-20s for the year, including a tie for 3rd at the recent Czech Masters before a top-20 at the European Masters.
Tip #1: Tom Lewis (each way) @ 66/1 with Betfred.

Stephen Gallacher is a player who has a close affinity with the course at Vilamoura as he has gone 6-3-9-12 in his past four visits and the Scot is a player who tends to perform well at certain venues. A two-time winner of the Dubai Desert Classic, Gallacher secured at top-20 at the European Masters last time out and the 42-year-old is one for the shortlist here.
Tip #2: Stephen Gallacher (each way) @ 60/1 with Paddy Power.

Finally, Robert Rock may have missed his last two cuts in a row but he played well at the Paul Lawrie Match Play in between top-ten finishes at the Scottish Open and Made In Denmark, and a return to the Portugal Masters, where he has gone 9-5 in his past two appearances, could see the two-time European Tour winner bounce back to form.
Tip #3: Robert Rock (each way) @ 70/1 with Betfred.com.
