This is World Numbers 43 vs 51 in favour of BVP. However I’m with Cink this week and this match bet appeals greatly. BVP tends to be a sluggish starter “west side” and 2 consecutive MCs on tracks that favour him show weakness especially as the Sony, BHC and Farmers are in consecutive weeks. Cink also missed the cut in Palm Springs but that hardly surprised in a tournament that least suits the Georgian.
However, the Open Champion of 2009 thrives on the coast and tends to play well on classical tracks out west. His last 7 tournaments of 2010 including 5th in California at Thousand Oaks shows that Cink is finally re-applying himself after “dining out” on his Open victory. They start even in this match bet so any shot advantage is profit. RESULT: Void - Van Pelt Withdrew Before Start
Tiger Woods Sell finishing position at 15 with Extrabet: Click here for £100 in fixed odds bets:
A great value spread on Tiger. If he finishes above 15th we’re in profit and you’d have to be an extremely brave character to lay Woods this week. His Ryder Cup exploits were exceptional and the way he dispatched the in-form Francesco Molinari was stuff of legend. Fast forward to December and the Chevron Challenge at the tight / classical Thousand Oaks where only an inspired G-Mac got anywhere close to him. Synopsis: Finding the old Tiger form and a Torrey Pines record of 1-1-1-1-10-1-5-4-2-1-3 would suggest we are in profit this week on the former World Number 1. RESULT: T44, 32 points loss.
