Golf betting tips: WGC Cadillac ChampionshipMarch 4, 2015 News & Tour
Dufner heads up six-strong hit-list for Doral
Six players may seem like a lot to back in just a 74 -runner affair in this week’s WGC Cadillac Championship from Doral but to me they are all value prices on Betfair and hopefully I will get to trade a bit over the four days.
Some of you may well have noticed the slim looking Jason Dufner who lost a load of weight as basically he wants to secure his future ability to play golf. Often heavy weight loss can have a detrimental effect on a players game and initially it seemed that way with Dufner but his performance last week showed an upturn in form. He has some solid form at Doral including on the revamped course last year – although sadly his rounds of 68 and 69 were sandwiched between rounds of 76 and 77. £60 90
Brendan Todd is making his Doral debut and will therefore have no preconceived ideas about how to play it. He has turned into a very consistent player and secured his maiden win last year and the price just caught my eye as being a bit big£34 190
Russell Henley seems to be a player quickly pushed out in price which is surprising as he already has a couple of wins on tour. One of those wins was the Honda Classic also played in Florida and he has won on the Web.com tour in this state as well. His form hasn’t been that bad this season and his 3rd in the Tournament of Champions reads well £25 210
Stephen Gallacher is turning into a very consistent player around the globe and whilst he may not win very often he does get himself up there in lots of top events. He was 6th here last season closing brilliantly at the weekend and offers a touch of value here £30 265
I will put up fellow Scot Marc Warren as well at the price as he is incredibly consistent these days and on his last two trips to the States for the PGA Championship has finished in the top fifteen. £20 330
Last but not least John Senden has drifted rapidly this week but I like backing players the week before they defend a title as they seem a little more relaxed. While he is not currently in the best of form a return to Florida may work well £25 265
