Dustin Johnson tipped to storm to Canadian Open glory

Jordan Spieth will not be seen at this week's Canadian Open following his sensational victory in The Open Championship at Royal Birkdale, but there will be a strong American contingent lining up in Thursday's first round, and it's no surprise to see Dustin Johnston and The Open runner-up Matt Kuchar sitting at the head of the betting for which should be a cracking event.

  • Jhonattan Vegas won this event in 2016
  • Matt Kuchar was a fine second in Open last week
  • World number one Dustin Johnson heads the betting

Tips Dustin Johnson to win    Best Bet @ 7 / 1  

DJ And Kuch The Ones To Beat

A shocking round of 77 saw Dustin Johnson plummet down the Open leaderboard, but the world number one showed glimpses at Birkdale that he was finding his best form, so with him likely to relish a move away from a Links course then the 7/1 with Betfred for him to bag victory at Glen Abbey is a decent bet.

His third round 64 at The Open showed that when he can put it all together he is a real force, so if he can scratch off memories off his seven-over par round on Sunday then you have to feel that Johnson will be very tough to beat this week, and has to be worth a win bet in a field that could be devoid of some significant strength in depth.

Matt Kuchar couldn't have put in a more accomplished round of golf on Sunday afternoon, but the Ryder Cup player was forced to settle for second place behind an inspirational Spieth, but he will return to the course on Thursday with huge confidence, and at 11/1 with Coral is sure to be a popular selection.

However, you have to feel that he could have left everything on the course after a monumental effort to land his first major, so he may just find it tough to reach those heights again, so could be worth ignoring this week in what should be a tournament that sees plenty of players break double figures.

Each Way Contenders

Charley Hoffman ended his Open charge with a cracking 67 on Sunday, and he continues to show as one of the leading American players on the tour, and at 25/1 with bet365 is one contender that is a solid each-way bet, while Bubba Watson (33/1 with Betfred) is another American star that showed glimpses last week, but his inconsistencies will see him falter in his surge to win this crown.

English star Ian Poulter continues to find his form, and after a positive week at The Open, the 45/1 chance with Betfred is another worth looking at from an each-way perspective, if he can use last week as a stepping stone, with Tony Finau (28/1 with Paddy Power) another who performed with credit last week.

Huge Priced Outsiders

Jhonattan Vegas (125/1) was a fine winner of this tournament 12 months ago, as he recorded a -12 winning score, so he is one to keep an eye, as he aims to become the first person since Jim Furyk in 2007 to retain this crown, while Scott Stallings (70/1 with Betfred) performed with credit at the Barbasol Championship last week when coming third, so is another big-priced contender that could shine.
