Golf Betting Tips – Memorial, LIV Houston, Scandi Mixed and more…

Louisiana, Adelaide, California, Japan… There is plenty going on this week in the world of golf, but who are our betting tips for glory?

 

Mixed events, Signature Events, 54 hole events – there is something for everyone in professional golf this week, but who are our betting tips?

The Memorial Tournament is the seventh of the eight Signature Events on the PGA Tour this year. As always, the event will be held at Muirfield Village, where reigning champion Viktor Hovland will look to defend.

Meanwhile, the LIV Golf League travels to Houston for the first time in its short history. There is also the Scandinavian Mixed, which sees the DP World Tour and Ladies European Tour come together for a week of golf in Sweden.

Who will win? Matt Coles takes a look at this week’s action…

the Memorial Tournament golf betting tips and preview

Venue: Muirfield Village, Dublin, Ohio
Date: June 6-9, 2024
Course stats: Par 72, 7,569 yards
Defending champion: Viktor Hovland (-7)

Patrick Cantlay @ 22/1 with bet365

Winner of the Memorial Tournament in 2019. Winner of the Memorial Tournament in 2021.

Patrick Cantlay will be aiming to become just the third man in history to win this event on at least three occasions. He has two top-five finishes in the Signature Events this season, and this could be the perfect place to grab his first win since 2022.

Denny McCarthy @ 66/1 with bet365

best putters on tour

Denny McCarthy came so close to his maiden PGA Tour victory at Muirfield last year, losing out to Hovland in a playoff. He also suffered the same fate at the Valero Texas Open earlier this year, when Akshay Bhatia pipped him to the title. It can only be so long before McCarthy becomes a PGA Tour winner, and with eight first-time victors on tour already in 2024, could he be the next?

LIV Golf Houston golf betting tips and preview

Venue: Golf Club of Houston, Houston, Texas
Date: June 7-9, 2024
Course stats: Par 72, 7,500 yards

Bryson DeChambeau @ 8/1 with bet365

Off the back of a runner-up finish at the PGA Championship, and coming to a course where length off the tee could well play a part, Bryson DeChambeau has to be one of the picks to win LIV Golf Houston this week.

Louis Oosthuizen @ 18/1 with bet365

Surely, Louis Oosthuizen is going to secure a LIV Golf League victory at some point this season! The South African already has two runner-up finishes in 2024, along with two other top tens. Could this be the week for the former Open Champion?

Scandinavian Mixed golf betting tips and preview

Venue: Vasatorp GC, Helsingborg, Sweden
Date: June 6-9, 2024
Course stats: Par 72, 7,295 yards
Defending champion: Dale Whitnell (-21)

Sebastian Soderberg @ 18/1 with bet365

I am fancying a home winner this week at the Scandinavian Mixed, and Sebastian Soderberg fits the bill. T2 at the Hero Indian Open, 2nd at the ISPS HANDA Championship, T3 at the Volvo China Open and a hole-in-one at the PGA Championship – it’s been a good year for Soderberg so far. 18/1 says he tops it off with a win at home!

Madelene Sagstrom @ 33/1 with bet365

Madelene Sagstrom WITB golf betting tips

Back on home soil, and in good form, Madelene Sagstrom is my pick to become just the second woman to win on the DP World Tour. She is 33/1, and the second favourite in the odds for the women, behind 2022 winner Linn Grant.

What else is going on in the world of golf this week?

There is plenty of other action going on this week, with the LPGA Tour, European Legends Tour and the PGA Champions Tour all holding tournaments.

Following on from the US Women’s Open, the LPGA Tour holds the ShopRite LPGA Classic. Meanwhile, both over-50s tours will have events as well.

The European Legends Tour travels to Greece for the Costa Navarino Legends Tour Trophy, while the American Family Insurance Open is the offering from the PGA Champions Tour.

Who will take victory at these tournaments? Check out our picks for success below…

Hinako Shibuno @ 60/1 to win the ShopRite LPGA Classic with bet365

Considering she finished runner-up at the US Women’s Open, I am very surprised that Hinako Shibuno is currently 60/1 this week for the ShopRite LPGA Classic. She was one of two players to finish the week under par at Lancaster Country Club, and if she carries that form into this week, she will be up there once more.

Steven Alker @ 6/1 to win American Family Insurance Open with bet365

Steven Alker has seven top tens on the PGA Champions Tour this year including a win and three runner-up finishes. At 6/1, the New Zealander is the second favourite to take this week’s American Family Insurance Open crown.

Adilson da Silva to win the Costa Navarino Legends Tour Trophy with bet365

After finished 2nd in the Order of Merit to Peter Baker last year, Brazil’s Adilson da Silva will be looking to grab his first victory of the 2024 European Legends Tour campaign this week in Greece!

There are currently no odds available for the Costa Navarino Legends Tour Trophy, but we will update this page with da Silva’s odds when they are out.

Matt Coles

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
