Lexi Thompson golf betting tips

Lexi? Ludvig? Rahm? Who are our betting tips for this week’s golf?

It’s a busy week of golf, but who are we tipping to take home the trophies this week?

 

Four events on four different tours. It’s another packed week of golf, but what are we tipping to be the best bets?

Following the delayed finish for the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, it will be a quick turnaround for some golfers.

The acciona Open de Espana begins on Thursday with Jon Rahm as the defending champion, having won the event three times in the last four years.

The Shriners Children’s Open has one major story, as Lexi Thompson becomes just the seventh female player to feature in a PGA Tour event. Meanwhile, Danielle Kang will be the two-time defending champion at the Buick LPGA Shanghai.

The last event of the week is the penultimate tournament in this season’s LIV Golf schedule. LIV Golf Jeddah kicks off on Friday in Saudi Arabia.

Who are we betting on this week? Matt Coles gives us his tips for you if you’re betting on the week’s golf here…

Shriners Children’s Open betting tips and preview

Venue: TPC Summerlin, Las Vegas, NV, United States
Date: October 12-15, 2023
Course stats: Par 71, 7,255 yards
Defending champion: Tom Kim (-24)

Ludvig Aberg @ 12/1 with William Hill

ludvig aberg golf betting tips

What more needs to be said about this generational talent? Ludvig Aberg is a phenomenal golfer and he has already shown that on the world stage despite only turning professional in the summer.

He was part of Europe’s Ryder Cup winning side, and last week, finished runner-up at the Sanderson Farms Championship, narrowly missing out in a five-man play-off.

To do that, just a few days after the high of winning the Ryder Cup, shows the Swede’s mentality. At 12/1, he is the joint favourite to win this week.

Even if he doesn’t, expect to see Aberg’s name on these lists until he does…

Vincent Norrman @ 33/1 with William Hill

Another Swede makes my list for the Shriners Children’s Open. Vincent Norrman has two wins already this season, don’t bet against him making it three.

He was victorious at the Barbasol Championship in the summer, before getting the better of a stacked field at the Horizon Irish Open in September.

Norrman is currently 33/1 to secure a third victory of 2023.

Best of the rest:

Martin Laird: A two-time winner at TPC Summerlin, Laird is 80/1 to become just the second three-time winner in Shriners Children’s Open history.

Lexi Thompson: She had to be mentioned.. Lexi is currently 2000/1 to win this week in Vegas, but it’s worth a shot, surely?

acciona Open de Espana betting tips and preview

Venue: Real Club de Sotogrande, Spain
Date: October 12-15, 2023
Course stats: Par 72, 7,099 yards
Defending champion: Jon Rahm (-25)

Thorbjorn Olesen @ 28/1 with William Hill

Thorbjorn Olesen

Denmark’s Thorbjorn Olesen might not be the bookies’ favourite to take the title at Sotogrande this week, but he’s in decent form.

He finished T10 last time out at the Cazoo Open de France, and has a win to his name in 2023. That came at the Thailand Classic in February, and is one of nine top-20 finishes this season.

The Dane is 28/1 to win for a second time this year.

Pablo Larrazabal @ 55/1 with William Hill

The Korea Championship in April. The KLM Open in May. Pablo Larrazabal has already won twice in 2023.

The Spaniard also won on home soil last year at the ISPS Handa Championship in Spain. Four wins in 18 months, and two of those in the last six months.

Larrazabal is 55/1 to win on home soil again, and to claim a third win of the campaign.

Best of the rest:

Jon Rahm: To say Rahm is the favourite to win a fourth national open would be an understatement. He is currently just 2/1 to be the victor in Sotogrande.

Marcel Siem: The German is 60/1 to win the Open de Espana, but he could be worth an outside shot. He has a win and a runner-up finish already in 2023.

LIV Golf Jeddah betting tips and preview

Venue: Royal Greens Golf & Country Club, King Abdullah Economic City, Saudi Arabia
Date: October 13-15, 2023
Course stats: Par 72, 7,199 yards
Defending champion: Brooks Koepka (-12)

Cameron Smith @ 10/1 with William Hill

The only three-time winner in LIV Golf in 2023, Cameron Smith could well become the first four-time winner in the league’s history this week.

He seems destined to win.. He won in London, and then came 35th at the Greenbrier. He then won at Bedminster before a 40th placed finish in Chicago.

Smith is 10/1 to win again and continue that up-and-down form he currently has.

Brooks Koepka @ 18/1 with William Hill

Brooks Koepka

The defending champion at the Royal Greens Golf & Country Club, Brooks Koepka defeated Peter Uihlein in a play-off in 2022.

This will be Koepka’s first appearance since losing out as part of the American team at the Ryder Cup.

He did not play his best at Marco Simone, but expect him to bounce back this week in King Abdullah Economic City. Koepka is 18/1 to go back-to-back in Saudi.

Best of the rest:

Bryson DeChambeau: DeChambeau is arguably in the form of his life, but was not picked to feature at the Ryder Cup. 8/1 says he shows Zach Johnson that he made a big mistake…

Harold Varner III: Having won on Saudi soil before, Harold Varner III could come good again this week. The American won the Saudi Invitational in 2022, and also won LIV Golf Washington earlier this year. 28/1 for Varner III to grab a second LIV Golf victory.

Buick LPGA Shanghai betting tips and preview

Venue: Qizhong Garden Golf Club, Shanghai, China
Date: October 12-15, 2023
Course stats: Par 72, 6,691 yards
Defending champion: Danielle Kang (-12, 2019)

Lilia Vu @ 12/1 with William Hill

You just can’t bet against a woman that has won two majors this season. Lilia Vu is one of the favourites this week in Shanghai.

She was victorious at both the Chevron Championship and the AIG Women’s Open, before featuring in her first Solheim Cup.

Vu is 12/1 to claim a fourth title of the season, in what has been a breakout year for the American.

Danielle Kang @ 18/1 with William Hill

Danielle Kang

With this event being played for the first time in four years, Danielle Kang remains the defending champion.

Not only that, she is a two-time defending champion having won in both 2018 and 2019. After a solid Solheim Cup, the American is in good form.

Kang will be aiming for a three-peat at Qizhong Garden, and she is 18/1 to do so come Sunday.

Best of the rest:

Xi Yu Lin: China’s leading golfer comes back to home soil after winning the Aramco Team Series – Hong Kong in a play-off on Sunday. She is 7/1 to win again this week in Shanghai.

Lydia Ko: At 50/1, New Zealand’s Lydia Ko is an outside shot this week. The Kiwi won the Aramco Saudi Ladies International earlier this year, but has not won on the LPGA Tour in 2023.

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.
