All sports fans eyes, well those that have a very keen interest in golf, will be watching the WGC Dell Technologies Match Play tournament that is going to be starting today, and as you would expect of such a major golf tournament there is a lot of interest in it.
However, being the type of golfing event it is, there are plenty of golfers that are in with a chance of winning it, and from a betting point of view it is a very open competition this year, which means there is plenty of value waiting to be mopped up if you fancy having a financial interest in it.
Whether or not you fancy the chances of the current favourite to win, well that is of course your decision to make, but at 10/1 there have been plenty of punters that have been backing Rory McIlroy at 10/1.
However, if you do want to bag those odds for yourself time is of the essence for if he starts this tournament as he means to go on, i.e. he plays well, then his odds are going to start to drop quite rapidly.
It is Betfred that are offering 10/1 currently on McIlroy winning this event, and for what its worth they do also have some generous each-way betting terms on this tournament too, so you could of course lower the risk by backing him each-way if you prefer.
As for what those betting terms are, they are paying out to four positions this year and are giving one quarter of the win odds to each-way backers on the place part of those bets too, and I doubt you are going to find much fairer terms than those no matter how hard you look online.
The Rest of the Field
Looking at the other golfers rather than just the current favourite to win you have the likes of Dustin Johnson at 11/1 and Justin Thomas at 16/1 and you will also find that it is easy to back the likes of Jon Rahm at 20/1.
In fact, I do know that each-way shares will be homing in one some of the 22/1 shots throughout the day and for reference they are Justin Rose, Tommy Fleetwood, Jason Day and Brooks Koepka too.
The odds do of course get much higher in value the further you look down the betting markets and some of the 2/1 shots that could be worth keeping your eyes on include Bryson Dechambeau, Paul Casey, Francesco Molinari and Tiger Woods at 25/1
There could be a chance that Bubba Watson managed to fill one of the top positions and if so his current odds of 28/1 will look very generous once the tournament ends and if you have your eye on Xander Schauffele or Tony Finau then now is a good time to back them as Betfred are going 30/1 on both of them, but those odds and all others listed up above could change at any time.
