Players Tipped to Win the Open de France

When it comes to the golfers that have been the ones that punters are backing currently in the Open de France, well as that betting market is now in play there have been quite a few that have been backed before those markets when live, and are also being backed right now too.

There does however appear to be a great amount of interest in Alex Noren, for whilst his outright win odds are high at 10/1, he does look likely to have a good tournament this year and is expected to be listed high up on the leader board if not at the top of it by the end of it.

That isn’t to say he will win of course, for there are now shortages of other golfers that are not going to need a huge amount of luck to come out on top, and another one that does catch the eye it does have to be said is Erik van Rooyen 12/1.

However, those odds do indicate that this years Open de France is a very open affair from a betting point of view and it wouldn’t be too much of a surprise if one of the other golfers did manage to win this year and below are some other golfers that you may just fancy betting on instead.

Luiten, Schwab and Pieters

I like the fact that the current odds being offer on golfers such as Joost Luiten are high at 15/1 for there is always a chance he could outperform all his opponents and the other entrants in this golf tournament and win at those decent odds.

A couple of other golfers that are being backed include the likes of Matthias Schwab who truly does look like a value bet at his current odds of 16/1 and the same can also be said of Thomas Pieters who is trading currently at around 18/1.

Name Your Own Odds

Backing any golfer to win a major golf tournament such as the Open de France is probably something you are going to want to do over the next couple of days, and keep in mind that when you make use of the Betfair betting change you can of course name your own odds in the hope another user of that popular peer to peer betting exchange will offer you those odds.

As for where the other fancied golfers stand regarding their odds, well you have golfers such as Jordan Smith at 20/1, Marcus Kinhult at 28/1 as well as Ross Fisher at 30/1m and any of them could pull this tournament out of the bag and win it.

With some much higher odds there are bound to be some of you out there that will fancy a back on golfers such as Sam Horsfield and Thomas Detry and 35/1 or who may be willing to back Andy Sullivan, Martin Kaymer, Victor Perez and Kurt Kitayama at 40/1, but do make sure you are betting with a bookie that is giving you the highest possible odds on those outsiders to win.
