GOLF BETTING: Live On Sky Sports 1: Weds 19:00
Angus Loughran previews this week’s Accenture Match Play where he fancies Geoff Ogilvy, Stewart Cink and Anthony Kim each way.
There may not be Tiger Woods or Phil Mickleson in a star studied field in Arizona but 64 of The World’s leading players take part in an 18 Hole Knockout event that ends with a 36 Hole Final on Sunday.
This tournament has often povided more upsets than one would normally expect but like a best of 9 frame Snooker Match anything can happen.
The first round over the years should carry a health warning to Golf punters who like to bet the odds on.
Geoff Ogilvy at 16/1 with betfred must be included in you portflio as he has winning form here and loves the format which not all do.
Open Champion Stewart Cink looks great value at 40/1 with totesport as he seems to have a decent draw while in top half Anthony Kim also is a huge price at 45/1 with Coral and opens against fellow American Matt Kuchar.
Austrlian Robert Allenby (35/1 Stan James) is having a decent start to 2010 and will fancy his chances of beating Peter Hanson of Sweden.
This is huge event for Ryder Cup Points and Colin Montgomerie is likely to have one of the hardests decisions of any recent Ryder Cup Captain later this year when picking his 3 wildcards for his European Team for Octobers Ryder Cup Match at Celtic Manor.
Europe have 7 of the top 10 seeds this week and a victory for any European would ensure him a place in Monty’s team in Wales.
Recommendations: Geoff Ogilvy, Stewart Cink and Anthony Kim each way
All the best
