Omega Dubai Desert Classic betting: Each-way tips

Paul Waring WITB

Paul Waring (200/1) had done very little since winning the Nordea Masters last August before suddenly popping back into the top 10 in Abu Dhabi.

Even so, it was a surprise to see the Englishman well into three figures with the oddsmakers following that tied 6th.

He’s missed the cut in his last two appearances in Dubai but did finish 13th back in 2014.

He would also have finished significantly better 12 months later had it not been for a horror show of a 79 in the final round.

Waring’s form can be a bit scattergun – he won after missing the cut at the Scottish Open and then didn’t cash again for two months.

But on the back of a decent week, it might be worth a speculative play on him repeating the trick in Dubai.

Alexander Bjork WITB

Alexander Bjork got off a great start in Abu Dhabi before fading away but, at 70/1, he might be worth persisting with.

He was sixth last year and has very good, and recent, form in the United Arab Emirates.

His location displays read 32-12-6-mc-17-13-32 and there seems no reason why he can’t perform at a similar level.

Perhaps a better bet might be to look at him to start the event very strongly and cash in the first round leader market.

Bjork’s 66 last Wednesday in Abu Dhabi is not a fluke. He began with a 65 in Dubai last year and a 67 in the DP World Tour Championship in 2017. In seven opening rounds in the UAE, Bjork has only twice shot worse than 69.

That’s who Steve thinks can perform at a big price, but who does he think is going to win? Turn the page to find out…
