Golf Betting – Canadian Open Preview and Top Picks

The Canadian Open is next up on the PGA Tour menu this week and a lot of golf betting handicappers know that it will have a tough act to follow.

Not only is it tough to follow The British Open on any given year, considering it is the third golf Major of the year, but now the Canadian Open has to follow up an act that included 59-year-old Tom Watson’s classic performance.

The online sportsbook betting public will have an interesting time making their picks this week as the field is fairly thin after the Open. Not many golfers want to fly from Scotland, all the way back to Canada in such a short span as it doesn’t give them enough time to recover.

That being said, there is some real value with certain golfers on the board. Here is a power ranking for this week’s tournament at Glen Abbey:

Camilo Villegas

The Canadian Open odds on favorite is Camilo Villegas, which may surprise a number of bettors. Villegas tied for 13th at the British Open but aside from that, hasn’t finished above 13th since March 15th. His skill fit this course well, particularly his firepower, which is why he’s the favorite.

Retief Goosen

No pundits, handicappers or betting software, could have predicted that Retief Goosen would have such a great British Open but after seeing him perform so well there, don’t be surprised if he carries the confidence over to the Canadian Open.

Anthony Kim

Anthony Kim will be the main sports pick this week as Kim had a really good start in his first attempt at Glen Abbey. The problem was that he shot a horrible 75 in his final round, which ruined his chances. He’s playing much better after a rough spring, which means he should have a good chance to win this weekend. Kim missed the cut at the British Open but prior to that, tied for third, 11th and 16th in the three previous tournaments, which indicates that he’s finding his swing again

Mike Weir

It’s the Canadian Open so a few Canadian are bound to be in contention, right? Weir does a good job on this course since he’s played it so many times. He knows how to play the short par 3’s and there aren’t many par 5’s. He’ll have a good chance this weekend.

However, if you are getting credit through a traditional banker then you need to be made ready to have a cosigner ready to assist you to. The lenders will certainly base that decision on a few elements but the greatest will be your credit history.
