Sony Open Spread Betting Tips

Steve Bamford's Spread Betting Tips for the 2011 Sony Open

Another successful week last week (click here for results to date) we're hoping for much more of the same this week!

My tips for the Sony Open:

Heath Slocum: Buy ‘Leaderboard 60 Index’ at 3 with Extrabet. Click here for £100 in fixed odds bets: Extrabet

As you can see in my main outright tips, I’m getting behind Heath Slocum this week in Honolulu. He’s also our Number 1 pick in the Sony Open predictor model. So this spread works well for me at low risk. If Slocum finishes 8th or better it guarantees us a profit and with his natural game favouring tight and technical Par 70 courses and Bermuda greens Waialee sets up brilliantly. Slocum is a coastal specialist who has won 4 of his 5 PGA Tour events on Bermuda. The forecast of wind across Thursday and potentially Friday adds fuel to the Slocum flames. RESULT: M/C, 3 Points Loss

Jonathan Byrd: Sell ‘Top Big Gun’ at 8 with Extrabet: Click here for £100 in fixed odds bets: Extrabet

This market is made from the following 10 players only: Stricker, Els, Furyk, Kuchar, Byrd, Allenby, Scott, Clark, Day, Choi – scoring = 10 points for finishing 4th out of these players; 20 points for 3rd; 30 Points for 2nd and 50 for 1st so if Byrd finishes lower than 4th that will guarantee us an 8 point profit with Byrd being priced at 8-11.

Jonathan Byrd has been magnificent over the past 2 tournaments. Naturally he won in a Play Off at the Timberlake tournament in late October and backed that up with an incredible play-off victory over Big Bob Garrigus at Kapalua last week. That equates to +$2,000,000 prize money in a matter of 2 months. However the bubble has to burst soon and in a group with Waialee experts like Stricker, Els, Furyk and Allenby it’s going to be incredibly difficult for Byrd to deny us our profit by finishing in the Top 4 of the “Top Big Gun” market. Indeed in 6 appearances at the Sony Open Byrd has a highest finish of only 23rd. RESULT: T34, 8 Points Profit

Odds and bookmaker offers correct at 21:10GMT 11.1.11 but naturally subject to fluctuation.
