It doesn’t seem like a year ago that the Turkish Airlines Open golf tournament was in play, well it has been, and the clock is now ticking down to this years staging of that annual event on which golfers taking part in it will all have their eyes on bagging a share of the enormous €6,168,085 prize purse.
This year the golf course that is staging the event is the one over at the Regnum Carya Golf & Spa Resort, and that is an extremely challenging golf course at the best of times and it is going to be one of those European Golf Tournaments that will certainly be worth watching on TV.
Now, as far as the betting opportunities go on the Turkish Airlines Open goes, what I would suggest you do is to look over at the BetFred betting site, for they are currently offering early bettors the option of a range of different betting markets other than just the standard outright winner one.
One of those betting markets however that did catch my eye and one that I do feel is going to be worth you taking a very close look at is the one on which you simply must pick out a golfer in the hope that he manages to finish in the top five positions of the tournament.
The odds associated with each golfer have of course been adjusted to take into account BetFred will be paying you out if your chosen golfer does finish in one of the top five positions when compared to that golfers outright winner odds, however it is certainly a betting market to consider utilizing rather than be forced to have to place an each-way type of bet instead.
With everything above in mind allow me to now move onto giving you some ideas of just what odds BetFred are offering on their top five finishers Turkish Airlines Open betting market. One other thing that is beneficial about using that betting market is that BetFred will also pay-out in full if two or more golfers tie in any of the placed positions, and that is something not many other bookies are going to do!
Betting Odds on the Top 5 Finishers Betting Market
Just be aware that the following odds from BetFred are now live and as the starting day of the Turkish Airlines Open is on the 1st of November 2018 you should make a point of placing your bets before that day to ensure you can take advantage of the following odds, and for reference the final day of that golf tournament is the 4th of November 2018!
Now there are of course a couple of golfers that should find it too difficult to hopefully fill one of the top five positions on the leader board of this golf tournament and those golfers along with their respective odds of doing so are Justin Rose at 4/5 and the equally talented Tommy Fleetwood at 11/8.
Those two golfers are at the top of their game currently and be aware that you are of course free to place a bet on either or both and by doing the latter it is possible you will win on both bets you place fi they do get a placing on the top five positions of the Turkish Airlines Open leader board.
As for some of the other much more fancied golfers to head the leader board this year well there is an excellent chance that Thorbjorn Olesen will do just that and as for the odds you can secure on him right now, those odds are BetFred are 11/4.
Also do consider placing a bet on the likes of Shane Lowry at 7/2, Hao-Tong Li at 4/1 and also Lucas Bjerregaard and Kiradech Aphibarnrat at 9/2 or even have something of a speculative bet on the likes of Thomas Pieters at 5/1 or even Tom Lewis at 11/2 as they are certainly golfers that know how to play and win and it wouldn’t be too much of a surprise if they did get a top five position on the leader board once this major golf tournament ends.
Golfers at 6/1 and Above
Let me now give you an overview and insight into which golfers are slightly lower down the betting market and ones that will need quite a bit of luck in placing to finish in any of the top five positions on this golf tournament.
There are several golfers that are chalked up at odds of 6/1 and they include the likes of Julian Suri, Andrea Pavan, Lucas Herbert, Joost Luiten, Lee Westwood and Andy Sullivan, but at 6/1 there is certainly a little bit of value to be had is you do personally think any of them are going to get placed.
A couple of 7/1 shots that you may fancy backing include both Jordan Smith and Matt Wallace and if you like the 15/2 odds associated with Alexander Bjork, Russell Knox and Ryan Fox then the soon you do place your bets on any of them the sooner you will be guaranteed of getting those decent odds!
Mikko Korhonen and Padraig Harrington are to be fair both very easy to back at odds of 8/1, Ross Fisher at 9/1 looks a fair bet too but if you are of the mind that it will be the likes of Erik Van Rooyen, Matthew Southgate, Soren Kjeldsen or Mike Lorenzo-Vera that will get placed in the top five positions of the Turkish Airlines Open this year then now is the time to be mopping up the odds of 10/1 that BetFred are offering on each of them!
As for the total and complete rank outsiders that lets be fair have no chance what so ever of reaching the top five positions, they are Taner Yamac, Ali Altuntas and Leon Acikalin but if for one or other reasons you do fancy backing any of them the odds you are going to be rewarded with at BetFred currently are massive at some 400/1!
