Northern Trust Open 2014- Golf Betting Tips & Predictions


Northern Trust Open 2014- Golf Betting Tips & Predictions- A great field this week at the immaculate Riveria Country club and our man @chrismunney provides his tips and predictions below-

This week the PGA TOUR will stay in the great state of California but will move to SoCal and more specifically, Riviera Country Club just outside of L.A. This tournament will be played at the same course for all four rounds which is a bit of a relief, but the field this week is MUCH stronger than last weeks field at Pebble. Riviera Country Club has hosted this tournament since 1973. Riviera is known amongst some as “Hogan’s Alley” because of the success that Ben Hogan enjoyed there. That should tell us a bit about the course in that ball striking will be critical here. The winning score here has averaged around -13 over the past few years and with almost perfect weather in the forecast, I can see scored being even lower this week.  John Merrick won this event in a playoff last year over Charlie Beljan. Let’s take a look at some course stats for Riviera Country Club:

Par 71

7,279 Yards

Slope Rating: 137

Course Rating: 75.6

Water Hazards: 0

Bunkers: 60

Avg Green Size: 5000 sq ft


Very strong field this week. Should be exciting.

Dustin Johnson to Win – 12/1 Ladbrokes- Open a new Ladbrokes account by clicking this link, and get a £50 free bet!

Impressive play at Pebble last week and finished strong in the final round. If Dustin can get his flat stick going, you can roll to a victory (No pun intended.) Johnson seems to be focused back on his game and a win should be in the works for 2014.

Webb Simpson to Win – 20/1 Betfred- Open a new Betfred account by clicking this link and get a free £25 bet.

We backed Simpson a couple of weeks ago in Phoenix and he had some rough stretches and couldn’t quite get into contention. With that being said, Webb still finished 10th. 9th in ball striking and 2nd in strokes gained this season. Excellent stats for Riviera.

Hunter Mahan to Win – 20/1 William Hill- Open a new William Hill account by clicking this link and get a free £25 bet.

Mahan couldn’t quite get it going last week but still played extremely well. He finished 8th here last year, 3 shots out of a playoff. Tons of course experience should help Hunter secure a win this week.

Graham Delaet to Win – 22/1 Sporting Bet- Open a new Sporting Bet account by clicking this link and get a ‘Risk Free’ £50 bet.

Amazing that Delaet still doesn’t have a PGA victory. I expect that to change before Augusta and this week is an excellent opportunity to make that happen. Delaet is the best ball striker on TOUR and in my opinion, that is the most important stat this week. 2 2nd place finishes in a row. I expect a win.

Harris English EW – 33/1 Coral- Open a new Coral account by clicking this link bet just £5 and get a free £20 bet!

One of my favorite players on TOUR and another player who when putting well can run away with a tournament. English ranks 4th in ball striking this season and already has 3 top 10s and a win already this season.

Good Luck All.
