Cazoo Classic betting tips: Wiesberger favourite for London Club
Odds and preview for the European Tour event
The Cazoo Classic takes place at the London Club, bringing the curtain down on the European Tour’s UK swing, as we examine the odds to find some Cazoo Classic betting tips.
The 144-player field at the Ash course in east Kent are chasing a €1.25 million purse, with none of the top 50 in the Official World Golf Ranking among the top contenders as most focus on the PFA Tour’s Wyndham Championship.
The Heritage Course, which was designed by Jack Nicklaus, is a parkland course measuring 7,308 yards and features plenty of water and contoured greens.
It hosted the European Open in 2008 and 2009, which were won by England’s Ross Fisher and France’s Christian Cevaer respectively.
Plenty are looking to pick up Ryder Cup points and catch the eye of European captain Padraig Harrington.
Topping the betting list is Bernd Wiesberger, who has eight European Tour victories. He sits just outside the automatic qualification places and seeks a first victory on English soil.
Weisberger’s most recent win came with successfully defending the Made in HimmerLand title in Denmark. He led from start to finish to take a five-shot victory and is 16/1 to win the Cazoo Classic.
Having had a busy first half of the year, the 35-year-old has had a break since the Open Championship and he should be among the leading contenders come Sunday.
Andy Sullivan, who has been consistent with top-10 finishes at the BMW International and the British Masters, is again among the favourites at 22/1.
His T26 at The Open was followed by a missed cut at the ISPS Handa World Invitational, but he produced a solid T48 at Fife’s Hero Open last weekend.
He should not be too long in adding to his four European Tour titles and could be a worthy pick in Cazoo Classic betting tips.
Masahiro Kawamura, T7 at the Scandinavian Mixed, fifth at Celtic Manor, T3 at Galgorm Castle and T16 at Fairmont St Andrew’s last weekend, continues to be thereabouts.
A first European Tour win could be on the horizon and he is a 22/1 shot in the Cazoo Classic odds.
The experienced Richard Bland is another who has had a break since playing at the Open and he played well previously in the respective Irish (T4) and Scottish (T15) Opens.
Bland, who broke his maiden European Tour duck at The Belfry in May, is a 22/1 chance.
At larger odds
Jordan Smith has had a couple of notable results recently, with a T3 in the Made in HimmerLand and a similar finish in the ISPS Handa World Invitational a fortnight ago.
He produced under-par rounds at Galgorm Castle and last week at Fairmont St Andrews, but his two final rounds at each – 74 and 73 respectively – let down his excellent first three opening rounds. He finished 13-under and T23 at the Hero Open, and is a 25/1 chance to win here.
In contrast, Ryan Fox’s opening round at the Fife course last weekend looked as though he was suffering from a little jet lag, having flown back from the Tokyo Olympics in a bid to try and improve his Race to Dubai standing.
The Kiwi then produced three solid under-par rounds to finish nine-under and T34. He is a 30/1 shot this week.
The Cazoo Classic betting tips can’t swerve Oliver Farr. The three-time Challenger Tour winner has been playing well and another strong 11-under finish at Fairmont St Andrew’s, on the back of good efforts at the Irish Open and Cazoo Welsh Open, suggests he is holding his form. Farr is a 50/1 shot.
Fellow Welshman Jamie Donaldson went through a bit of a sticky patch with a couple of missed cuts in June, but in the last couple of events he has started to look like his old self with three good rounds at both the Scottish Open and the Hero Open. Donaldson is also a 50/1 chance.
On a course that plays to his strengths, Ross Fisher may be able to build on the form that saw him finish T15 at the Scottish Open. He is a 66/1 chance this week.
