This week's betting tips

The best odds for the Dubai Desert Classic

This week's betting tips

Ere, Rory, not being funny but you've forgotten your socks again...

Sei Young Kim came T-2 at the Pure Silk LPGA Classic for a small pay out this weekend but it could have better had Britney Lincicome produced just one birdie. Enough for the Spiv to wipe his face as it stood at least. So on a bit of a roll going into this one. 

This week the European Tour heads to Dubai for the Omega Dubai Desert Classic. Rory McIlroy is the bookies favourite going into this one with the best price at Ladbrokes at 5/2. So if you looking for some good returns it is pointless going for an Each Way on the Northern Irishman. However, there are plenty of excellent prices from players other than him. 

So with that in mind, here are the best prices from those who could contend in Dubai.

This week's betting tipsHenrik Stenson 10/1 (William Hill)

Coming back from injury last time out the Spiv thought the Swede might struggle. Shows what I know as he finished T-3 in his first tournament back. Finished tied with McIlroy in the end so don't be surprised to see him challenging this week. Not bad odds seeing that everyone fancies McIlroy. 

This week's betting tipsMartin Kaymer 25/1 (SkyBet)

The German finished T-16th in Abu Dhabi a couple of weeks ago and at times looked strong. A couple of small errors cost him a place in the top ten but on the whole he looked good. Expect him to push on here on a course he likes. T-4 last year on this course and currently the bookies third favourite. 

This week's betting tipsAndy Sullivan 33/1 (Ladbrokes)

Sullivan is looking very good indeed at this price. Led in Abu Dhabi only to falter on the final round. Had a great season last year and looking good for a place in the European Ryder Cup team. Like Kaymer he also came T-4 last year and a great price for the Englishman. 

This week's betting tipsThomas Pieters 40/1 (Ladbrokes)

2nd at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship and millimetres away from a play off. Looking good indeed. Winner of the Czech Masters and KLM last year in two consecutive weeks. This kid is good, real good. 40/1 for an Each Way is an excellent price for a strong player.  

This week's betting tipsBradley Dredge 110/1 (Bet365) 

Did you see him at the Qatar Masters last week? Four birdies in the last four holes secured the Welshman his highest finish in two years. T-4th, confident and two good results in two tournaments. Can he make it a third...at 110/1 it’s a price worthy of finding out. 

For the months of February and March the Golf Spiv will be donating all of our betting profits to charity. One of our Golfing buddies is doing a 140 mile cycle ride to raise money for The Movement Centre. They help children with Cerebral Palsy. This charity provides specialised physiotherapy for children with Cerebral Palsy called Targeted Training. It is an amazing cause and Spiv is getting right behind it.
