WGC Matchplay, WebDotCom and thoughts this week

I never strongly recommend any bets in matchplay format but my top 5 vs the field ratings can be found on the 888sport blog, while some decent value (IMO) shouts and full preview of the WGC Cadillac Matchplay Championships event can be found as usual over on my Unibet golf column. I do have an outside interest at very long odds on Marc Leishman. He's also a good value 2/1 top price to beat Rose in the first match or 5s to win his group.

What I will be doing is trading the new round robin group format on Betfair. The idea is to back favourites from different groups that have the potential to steam (come in strongly) if they win their first two matches, with their odds likely to stay close to their SP if they win just 1 from their two opening matches. The plan then is to exit on Thursday night after all players have played two matches, whatever the position in the book. I've gone for the guys below (plus Gmac and Hideki) - the rest have a E1,000 liability next to them at this stage.

Please note that this is a new format this year for the WGC Cadillac Matchplay championships so this is an experimental #backtolay trade.

I'll also be covering the United Leasing Championships WebCom tour event so keep an eye on the profit and loss spreadsheet for selections. There is some decent value about here on guys who are dropping down from the main tours IMO.
