Inplay trade at the Mayo classic

This week's round 2-3 trade for the Mayakoba Classic involves backing 4 guys from the early wave on an average score of -6:

Zach Johnson 19.00 -7
Russell Henley 44.00 -5
Chez Reavie 32.00 -5
Mark Hubbard 26.00 -7

Scoring average from the early starters in round 1 was half a shot better than the late and wind conditions are expected to be similar on saturday, with wind getting up as the day goes on. As you can see, I've backed the quartet to level stakes with the plan / hope to trade out between 36-54 holes depending on how much play we see on Saturday

Having watched the tournament develop yesterday, conditions look great for low scoring but there's still some big punishment for errant drives with more than 1 shot often going for a stray ball. The players above largely fit the profile of point to point golfers who make a lot of birdies. ZJ and Chez excel with the wedges and short irons into these soft greens and Henley can go super low when that putter hots up. He also has a super high ball flight which is suited to taking these pins out this week.

How Nicspicks Works...

Nicspicks provides weekly golf betting tips and previews across the PGA Tour and European Tours. The golf betting tips and insights are free, though you will have to join the members mailing list above to avail of all weekly tips across both tours. I will be implementing a new staking plan and targeting different areas of the markets in 2020 to try and tackle the current evolution of the golf betting game, which has now become so competitive, and IMO the terms we are betting against the bookmakers with are for the most part, outdated.

We will be betting using odds on Betfair Sportsbook where possible. Betfair offer each way 7 and even 8 places on most events throughout the year. £100 in free bets are on offer when you sign up through this link. In play trading will be a feature on Nicspicks throughout the season and a Betfair exchange account is also essential to get involved in this. A free £20 bet for the exchange can be claimed below:
