Take a look at who Golf Monthly thinks will do well this week on the PGA Tour in this Waste Management Phoenix Open golf betting guide


Waste Management Phoenix Open golf betting guide

The PGA Tour visits one of its most raucous courses this week at the Waste Management Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale.

Be ready for the volume to be turned up to 11 this year as the Super Bowl, which always coincides with the final day’s play, is also in Phoenix this Sunday.

People are particulary excited by the return to action of some of the PGA Tour’s star names.

Tiger Woods, fresh from having his tooth knocked out while watching some winter sports, plus Jordan Spieth, who finished last year with two incredible victories, are in the field.

The favourite this week is Bubba Watson, who was 2nd last season to Kevin Stadler.

He won’t be defending, though, as he’s out of action with a hand injury.

This is the 3rd week of our betting challenge against Down the 18th and we will again be putting our £10 against theirs to see who can pick the winners. For last week’s results, check out their blog (including details of a GM winner).

Waste Management Phoenix Open advised bets

Phil Mickelson 20/1 £2.50 each way

Unusual for him to be this long a price, but with Watson, Spieth and Woods in the field he’s dropped in value. He has an awesome record in this event and a top-25 finish last week at the Humana Challenge means he is ready to compete. He Won here in 2013 when he shot 60,65,64,67.

Brendan Steele 40/1 £1.50 each way

He tied 2nd last week at the Humana Challenge and has finished inside the top 6 in the last three Phoenix Opens. Definitely someone to keep an good eye out for.

Kevin Na 80/1 £1 each way

Na is a bit of an enigma on the course – he can either be very good, or utterly awful. He’s had some success here in the past and is playing some pretty solid golf at the moment. He finished 5th here back at the 2012 Phoenix Open.

Prices from Paddy Power. Each way price ¼ odds places 1,2,3,4,5. Please bet responsibly.
