Nigel Seeley's three from the tee for DP World Tour Championships

Bettingpro Staff 13 Nov 2018

2018 DP World Tour Championship betting tips. Read on for our expert tips for the upcoming DP World Tour Championship at the Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. 

2018 DP World Tour Championship 

THIS weeks marks the end of the 2018 Race to Dubai, with 60 of the World's best players heading to the Middle East to play in the the final Rolex Series tournament of the season, the DP World Tour Championship from the stunning Jumeirah Golf Resort.

Following the withdrawal of World Number 1 Justin Rose the market is now headed by two time winner of this event and course specialist Rory McIlroy.

McIlroy loves it at this venue and he is already proving to be popular in the betting, but odds of just 8/1 aren't for me and although he finished well last week in South Africa he showed in his opening two rounds that he's a long way of his A Game and although he always plays well at Jumeirah the former World Number 1 looks no value at the prices.

Sergio Garcia is next in the betting and I can't get excited about the 11/1 on the Spaniard either.

Last week at the Nedbank the former US Masters winning was a heavy odds on favourite from the start of the second day after an opening 64, but he somehow managed to throw a four shot lead away and that is still something that worries me when backing Garcia, despite all his success his failure to close out tournaments and with a stella field this week, he's one to avoid for me.

Fellow Spaniard Jon Rahm won this event last year on debut and at a similar price in the outright market to Garcia, I would fancy big Jon to perform better this week and in a 72 match bet I would take Rahm over Garcia if the opportunity arose.

All eyes will be on Tommy Fleetwood and Francesco Molinari who will go toe-to-toe to in the battle to be crowned European number one, Fleetwood will be looking to end the season as number one for successive years and beat his Ryder Cup teammate and with their personal duel developing, that might side-track their prospects of winning the huge cheque this weekend.

Three From The Tee

1) TYRRELL HATTON @ 16/1 with BoyleSports

The man I like this week is another European Ryder Cup star and it's TYRRELL HATTON at the general 16/1 (Paddy Power, Betfred and Boyles offering 1-6 places).

Hatton has had an incredible 2018 with seven top 10 finishes and although he is yet to win a tournament this year, to add to his three European Tour titles, he's gone very close.

Earlier in the year Hatton finished third in Dubai at the Omega Desert Classic and was also runner-up in his penultimate start at the Alfred Dunhill Links, losing by just one shot.

Hatton is heading to the desert in great form with three top 10s in his last six starts and he likes Jumeirah with top 15 finishes in everyone of his four previous visits. with his best finish a runner-spot in 2017.

2) Matt Wallace @ 50/1 with Betfred

My second selection is MATT WALLACE who looks overpriced at 50/1 with Betfred who are offering 1-6 places this week, but at 1/5 the odds (I personally would always take the extra place).

Wallace is another who has had a fantastic 2018 with an incredible THREE tournament wins and for a multi Tour winner odds of 50/1, seriously do the 28 year-old an injustice.

The Englishman is a confidence golfer and he must be feeling great heading to the Dubai after an impressive fifth at the Nedbank last week closing with a very impressive 67 (his best round of the week) in difficult conditions.

3) THOMAS DETRY @ 55/1 with Betfred

My final pick is a player who I think is going to be a superstar on the European Tour next season and that is Belgium's THOMAS DETRY at 55/1, again with Betfred.

The 25 year-old has the perfect golf game and although he is yet to get his first tour win, it's just a matter of when it will happen rather than if it's going to happen.

The golfing World has been talking about Detry for a few years now and on his performances this season he's got a huge future ahead of him and he's going to put in a decent showing this week on debut.

Last weekend at the Nedbank he finished in seventh and that was after an nightmare round of 75 to start and a fortnight ago he was third in Turkey, which was his second third place finish in his last six starts.
