2011 VALERO TEXAS OPEN PICKS

Valero Texas Open Picks

Please Note: Trading the golf is the safest and best way to make money long term, you can see my golf trading section/strategy here if betting on the Valero Texas Open

Pick 1: Bo Van Pelt E/W @ 25/1 (general) Previous 50/1 winner for Nic's Picks has moved up a couple of levels in the past year or so and returned to form at the Masters last week. Great driver of the golf ball and game could suit the 7,500 yard plus AT&T track at the Valero Texas Open.

Pick 2: Ryan Palmer E/W @ 33/1 (general) Streaky Palmer came up under the radar for a top 10 finish at the Masters and when on form can compete at the highest level. Texas native is a decent value price at the Valero Texas Open this week....

Pick 3: Angel Cabrera E/W @ 40/1 (general) Very much over priced on the back of a Masters week where he was at the top end of the driving stats and also had his putter working. The short stick is the problem area for Cabrera but if he continues where he left off last week, he should feature at the Valero Texas Open. Big hitter will have an advantage on the lengthy AT & T course.

Pick 4: Vaughn Taylor E/W @ 80/1 (Skybet) Taylor in good form this season so far and 1 of the better players in the field in terms of quality. Price is way too big. Excellent putter.

Valero Texas Open Sleeper Pick
Pick 5: John Rollins E/W @ 110/1 (Bet365) I was listening to Rollins in a recent interview where he claimed he was playing well but the results were not showing and that he felt his season was about to kick off. Long and straight off the tee and a good long par 3 player which could be key to getting round at the Valero Texas Open this week with par 3's in excess of 200 yards.

  1. Hi, You are recommending trading these players yet have quoted fixed odds with Skybet & Bet365?
    How are you trading? Win only?

  2. 95% + of my visitors are looking for E/W picks and don't have much of a clue about trading. Trading is the better option if they want to learn. Back the outright win and trade accordingly.

  3. Hi Nick,

    Really interesting section on golf trading, I've taken on board what you said and staked a small amount across a range of players on Valero. Great shout with Vaughn Taylor, hopefully he has another good couple of rounds and then I can lay him off for a guranteed profit! Cheers for the help,

    Alex
