Open de France betting – who tames Le Golf National?

Le Golf National lies in wait… Who should you put money on if you’re betting on the Open de France?

 

The DP World Tour continues this week with the Cazoo Open de France but who are we betting on for victory?

After an incredible victory for New Zealand’s Ryan Fox on Sunday at Wentworth, the DP World Tour moves over the Channel to French soil.

This event is the oldest national open in Continental Europe, dating back to 1906. This will be the 105th edition of the competition.

The Open de France will be held at Le Golf National, the venue of the 2018 Ryder Cup. Italy’s Guido Migliozzi comes in as the defending champion.

Who will win? Matt Coles give us his betting tips for this week’s Cazoo Open de France…

Cazoo Open de France betting tips

Min Woo Lee @ 11/1 with William Hill

min woo lee

Could we see back-to-back winners from Oceania on the DP World Tour following Ryan Fox’s victory at Wentworth? I am backing Min Woo Lee to get back into the winners’ circle this week.

The Australian has been in good form over the last couple of weeks, as he returned to the DP World Tour after taking a six-week break.

He finished T7 at the Horizon Irish Open, before coming home in a tie for 14th at the BMW PGA Championship on Sunday. Taking it further back, he has five top-15 finishes in his last seven tournaments.

Over the last 12 months, Lee has more top-five finishes than missed cuts, showing his consistency. His last win came over two years ago at the Abrdn Scottish Open, and this could be his week to lift another trophy.

Aaron Rai @ 14/1 with William Hill

Aaron Rai Open de France betting

Another man whose last victory came at the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open is Aaron Rai, and this could also be the week for the Englishman.

That victory at the Renaissance Club came back in 2020 and although he is yet to get back into the winners’ circle, he came close at Wentworth on Sunday.

His runners-up finish, just a shot back from eventual winner Ryan Fox, was his best result since that victory three years earlier.

Rai, who has been plying his trade on the PGA Tour for the last couple of seasons, finished in the top three at the RBC Canadian Open back in June.

Could we see another Englishman win in France, following Tommy Fleetwood’s victory back in 2017? At 14/1, Aaron Rai is one of the favourites this week for the title.

Victor Perez @ 35/1 each way with William Hill

Victor Perez

As the DP World Tour returns to France this week, I had to put a Frenchman in my selections and Victor Perez came to mind immediately.

Perez had been in the conversations to be a part of the European Ryder Cup team in Rome next week, but his mid-season form trailed off and saw him fall away from contention in the points standings.

He took victory at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship in dramatic fashion back in January, his first Rolex Series title.

Since the PGA Championship, Perez has missed more cuts than he has made, but a return to home soil should see an improvement in his form.

Could Perez become just the fourth French winner of this crown in the last half-century? At 35/1, he is definitely worth an each way bet, at least.

Best of the rest…

Ryan Fox: After his incredible victory at the BMW PGA Championship on Sunday, could we see Ryan Fox take a second win in as many weeks?

Ryan Fox

The Kiwi is 14/1 to go back-to-back, and he will be full of confidence after beating the field at the DP World Tour’s flagship event at Wentworth.

Rasmus Hojgaard: The Dane finished runner-up at this tournament last year, and was a winner on the DP World Tour earlier this year at the Made in Himmerland.

A week before his twin brother makes his Ryder Cup bow, could Rasmus take a victory on French soil? 33/1 says he does.

Guido Migliozzi: The Italian is the defending Open de France champion, and at 45/1, he is an outside bet to win it again.

He has not won since, but Migliozzi has had top 20 finishes in two of his last three events, doing so at the Omega European Masters and the Horizon Irish Open. A return to form this week in Paris, perhaps?

Fancy a punt on this week’s action? Take a look at the latest odds with William Hill.

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.
