This week the PGA Tour are still in California at the Riviera Country Club, check out who our tipster has picked to do well with our Northern Trust Open golf betting tips


Northern Trust Open golf betting tips

The PGA Tour stays in California this week for the Northern Trust Open at Riviera Country Club.

Riviera is one of the trickiest courses on the PGA Tour. The fairways are tough to hit and the greens are really demanding.

Defending champion is Bubba Watson (11/1) but he is behind Dustin Johnson (10/1) in the betting market. Whilst the ever-dangerous Jordan Spieth (12/1) is at his now regular short odds.

All three of these players have had slightly indifferent form and therefore will not be touching them.

As ever the £10 challenge with DownThe 18th continues this week, following the body blow of them tipping a 100/1 winner last week that you can read about in their blog.

Northern Trust Open golf betting tips

Jimmy Walker £2 each way at 16/1 He is having a superb year and enjoys playing at this course. Has already won at the Sony Open and seems to be competing every Sunday, feel that he should be shorter than he is. Has finished top 5 here twice before.

Bill Haas £1 each way at 28/1 The winner here in 2012 and having already won on tour once this year at The Humana Challenge (where I tipped him) Not someone to overlook this week at preferable odds.

Francesco Molinari £1 each way at 66/1 This course should really suit him, but he does not have a great record here. Has had a decent start to the season including a top 10 at Humana Challenge.

Charles Howell III £1 each way at 80/1 won here in 2007 and also had a runner – up finish in 2003. Finished 5th in his last start at Torrey Pines, so a nice looking each way bet at this price.

Odds from Paddy Power, Each way bets 1/4 odds Top 6.
