Dubai World Championship Betting

Big Season Finale In Dubai The Dubai World Championship, after 51 long golfing weeks is here and Rory Mcilroy (wrongly IMO) dominates the betting. 1 final effort before the stars of world golf get to head home and relax for the christmas and there are 4 of the world's best golfers still in the running for the year long Race To Dubai trophy. Those 4 players are the aforementioned McIlroy, an eager Lee Westwood, Germany's Martin Kaymer and Ross Fisher from England who is the best value pick of the 4 @ 20/1. They will be all having their own personal battle within the Dubai World Championship to claim the European Tour's biggest prize - The Race to Dubai (formerly known as The Order Of Merit... Stay tuned for Dubai World Championships Betting preview/picks


Little is known about the venue for this week's big showdown - The Earth course in Dubai. Martin Kaymer was certainly keen to get an edge over his opponents having been the first player to arrive, late on Sunday. One thing is for certain and that is the fact that the Greg Norman designed track will be a severe test from tee to green with some potentially nail biting risk and reward holes coming down the stretch. At 7695 yards long and with numerous water hazards, the emphasis this week is most definitely on driving, both length and accuracy.

Expert Value Dubai world Championship picks:
-1pt E/W Ross Fisher @ 20/1 (Ladbrokes) With his driving ability and with eyes on the overall Race To Dubai trophy, Ross could be a serious contender this week. Winner of the match play a few weeks ago and has had a week's rest to get ready for the big showdown

-0.75pts E/W Graeme Mc Dowell @ 50/1 (Ladbrokes) Found some form on the Asian swing and tends to do well on major like courses

-0.75pts E/W Soren Hansen @ 50/1( StanJames) Hasn't won for a while but 1 of Europe's top notch players and with the premium being on driving, at 50/1, I can't leave out Soren Hansen. If he has a good week with the putter, this could be his time.

To shoot lowest Round
-1pt E/W Rory McIlroy @ 16/1 (Sky Bet) As mentioned earlier I don't think McIlroy should be favourite and the reason is that he hasn't been able to put 4 good rounds together this year but he is certainly capable of shooting low numbers as he's proved the last 2 weeks.

-0.5pts E/W Ross McGowan @ 60/1 (Sky Bet) McGowan has shot some very low rounds this year and when he gets going, he doesn't hold back. He went very low in his victory this year on a course not too dissimilar in length to the earth course

-0.5pts E/W Thomas Aiken @ 100/1 (Sky Bet) Enigmatic south African hasn't been in good form of late but at odds like this I can't over look a small value bet on a man capable of shooting any number on any given day

What is expected Strokes Gained Course Fit ?

Expected strokes gained course fit (xSGF) can be predicted using my model below. For prospective golf betting tips it projects ahead of time how many shots a player is expected to pick up per round on average on a particular golf course. It's weighed against a neutral golf course of the same rating. For example: Sam Horsfield at Celtic Manor vs TPC Southwind. This number will also portray ability level in terms of strokes gained total. Click "find out more" under the course fit golf betting model for info.

What is Progressive Form in Golf Betting?

Progressive form in golf betting differs from current form in that players are showing a trend in the right direction in their recent scoring. Trending form has a high predictive value in golf betting and can also catch players under the radar at an inflated price vs their true betting odds. For example - a player shows form of T40 - 24 - 24, but last week he was in the leading PGA Tour group on Sunday with Tiger Woods and had a bad round due to nerves. His finishing position may not fully capture his actual form.
