Betting Tips for the Smart Punter

Alex Noren the pick at Match Play

Paul Lawrie hosts another Scottish Match Play event and Alex Noren is the natural pick for an event played on a links course that will suit some better than others. 64 players have entered and the winner will need to win 6 matches in 4 days to take victory. There are plenty of question marks over the favorites with the likes of Chris Wood and Peter Uhlien returning from injury and Matthew Fitzpatrick and others around him out of form.

We made really good money on Alex Noren a few weeks back when he returned at big odds in the Scottish Open, which was around a similar links course as this week. He’s rightly the favorite and 12/1 is still a fair bet for a player head and shoulders above most of his rivals. He’s always enjoyed playing in Scotland and this course will be right up his street with all the little subtleties suiting his game perfectly.

Mikko Ilonen his another that plays well north of the border and he’s been given a great 1st round draw against what you can only call an asian no hoper who hasn’t made the cut in weeks. Ilonen won the 2014 Volvo Matchplay beating the likes of McDowell, Stenson and Dubuisson on the way to victory and is sure to get off to a flyer on Thursday. He has a great chance of making it two big wins in match play formats this week.

The third and final pick for the Archerfield links is England’s David Howell. He’s finding a little form at the end of the season and played well in both the Scottish Open and Open Championship to give a ray of light on what looked like a dwindling golf career. The likable Sky pundit won the Dunhill Links back in 2013 at St Andrews and enjoys the curves and rolls of links golf. He knows how to win and mentally he’s can get the job done, so 6 rounds is well within his scope and a good display is on the cards from the Howler.
