3M Open betting tips for this week’s PGA Tour event. Read on for our expert tips for the 3M Open taking place from Minnesota at the Twin Cities GC.

3M Open

Betting is a funny old game, after the highs of a 66/1 winner a fortnight ago we came down to earth with a bang with the lows of a bomb out at the Rocket Mortgage Classic and this week it looks another tricky event with the inaugural 3M Open from Blaine, Minnesota at the Twin Cities GC.

When finding potential winners of any golf tournament previous course form is essential and this week, like last, there is nothing to go on that front. For that reason I would again advice you to keep the stakes small.

The Twin Cities Golf Course is 7,468 yards and with three driveable par 4s we should expect to see low scoring again, as we have seen in the last couple of weeks and the big boomers may have a big advantage.

World number one Brooks Koepka heads the betting at the general quote of 8/1 and as I have said on many occasions the 29 year-old only comes alive in majors and hasn't won two regular events outside a major and although he's golf game looks ideal for the course set-up, I would rather be a layer than a backer at single figure prices.

It was another steady week for tournament second favourite Hideki Matsuyama in Detroit where he finished in T13th to finish inside the top 25 in all of his last five starts and he will put in another good showing, but no wins on the PGA Tour for two years concerns me and as short as 9/1 with some bookmakers, I will pass.

Australian Jason Day is available at 11/1 and he is another who hasn't won for a long time, 14 months in fact, but despite that barren run the former PGA Champions golf game is looking good at the moment with six top 10 finishes already this season, which includes an eighth in his last start at TPC River Highlands, but I fear that he won't have the distance at this track and other boomers in the field may be at a bigger advantage.

Three From The Tee

Rory Sabbatini @ 33/1 William Hill

I went with RORY SABBATINI a few weeks ago as one of my three of the tee selections and he gave us a good run for our money and I like the 43 year-old again this week at the general 33/1 with most bookies. Sabbatini was in the golfing doldrums for a few seasons when he was really struggling for form, but the six time PGA Tour winner is playing some of the best golf of his entire career at the moment and he will certainly be back in the winning enclosure very soon and this looks a great time to catch him at a nice price. Last week at Detroit GC he finished in a tie for third, which was his fourth top six finish in his last seven starts and seventh top 25 in the last three months and if you shop around and bet with bookmakers who are offering seven places this week he looks a great each-way bet.

Joaquin Niemann @ 33/1 William Hill

Another player at 33/1 is my second pick and that is red-hot Chilean JOAQUIN NIEMANN and the 20 year-old who only joined the PGA Tour this season is a winner waiting to happen. Niemann has the distance to suit this course and the South American is in fantastic form with his short game with him ranked second on GIR last week in Detroit. The stats look good for the rookie as does his form as he's finished inside the placings in fifth in the last two weeks at the Travellers Championships and the Rocket Mortgage Classic and I like him to do so again.

Cameron Champ @ 90/1 Coral

CAMERON CHAMP is one of the longest hitters on the PGA Tour and the 24 year-old has the power to blitz this course despite not being in the best of form. Champ started off the season on fire with a win at the Sanderson Farms Championship in October and followed that success with top 15 finishes in four of his next five events.  In recent months his golf game has been poor with seven missed cuts in his last 10 events, but last week in Detroit he showed signs of what he is capable of after an opening round 66 and an even better 65 on the Friday, the weekend wasn't as good and he ended up in a tie for 46th spot but this course is set up for a player like him and he can live up to his name again this over the next few days and is well worth a small investment.
