Irish Open betting tips for this week’s European Tour event. Read on for our expert tips for the Irish Open taking place at the Lahinch Golf Club in Co, Clare.

Irish Open

The countdown to The Open Championships gets going this week with the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open which will be held at Lahinch Golf Club, Co Clare, for the first time the tournaments long history.

Lahinch is described as the "St Andrews" of Ireland and was the home of the South of Ireland Championship, an amateur event which has had some very notable winners over the years including Darren Clarke, Paul McGinley, Graeme McDowell and Padraig Harrington.

This week Shane Lowry leads the home challenge at 18/1, but Jon Rahm heads the betting with the bookies at the general 8/1 and the 2017 champion is a worthy favourite in conditions that he thrives and with a runner-up spot at Valderrama over the weekend he will be a very popular choice to go one better, but not for me.

Tommy Fleetwood is always a player to fear on links courses and at 12/1 he again will be a very popular choice, but the Englishman has looked tired after a lot of travelling this season and he is another I want to avoid at the current odds, as is third favourite Matt Wallace at 16/1 who isn't somebody I would want to rely on in these conditions.

Three From The Tee

Rafael Cabrera Bello 28/1 Coral

Rahm is the bookies most likely winner, but another Spaniard is my fancy this week and I like RAFAEL CABRERA BELLO at the general 28/1. RCB finished eighth at this event at the K Club in 2016 and the 35 year-old arrives in Ireland in some fantastic form after finishing third in his last start at the BMW International a fortnight ago with a really impressive closing round 66. Cabrera-Bello won the Scottish Open in similar conditions to what he will encounter this week at Troon in 2017 and a week later he finished fourth at The Open at Royal Birkdale, again on a links course and unlike many in this field he will relish conditions and has just come off the back of his best week of the year.

Jorge Campillo @ 66/1 Ladbrokes

ANOTHER Spaniard gets the second spot this week and it's hard not to be impressed with the current form of JORGE CAMPILLO and the 33 year-old looks overpriced at the general 66/1. Campillo won his first European Tour event at the Trophee Hassan II in April this year and in his last 10 starts he has finished in the top 20 on EIGHT occasions which includes a win, two runners-up finishes and three third places. Last week at Valderrama he played well again to finish in a share of 15th. His record at this event is an impressive one as well with a third last year in only his second appearance at these championships and arriving in the best form of his career I am amazed that he is available at a huge 66/1.

Thomas Detry @ 66/1 William Hill

THOMAS DETRY is my final selection and I can't ignore the claims for the talented Belgium at a rather large looking 66/1. Detry is the player that has appeared in this column more than any other and he is always in contention, but he never gets over the finishing line but at the massive odds on offer this week, I can't overlook the 26 year-old. Detry recovered from a poor start last week in Spain to finish in a share of eighth and and that was his third top 15 finish in his last five starts, which is good going and it makes the 80/1 look very appealing. The current World golf champion has no flaws in his game and the only thing stopping him winning a tournament is his mental believe and once he gets that first win he will go on and win many more.
