IAN POULTER TO BEAT JOHN SENDEN IN 72-HOLE MATCH @ 2.16Final result: 1 - 0
Profit: 19.44 - 9 = 10.44
Please read my outright win picks for overview of tournament and course analysis. In this section, I'm going to highlight my 72-ball match-ups. These are head-to-head bets between two players over 72-hole tournamenet with no tie offered so dead heat rules apply.
Graeme McDowell to beat Padraig Harrington. G-Mac has the almost perfect profile fit for Sawgrass. Shot the weekend's low score at Quail Hollow last week. Threatened to win on several occasions this year, but must curb slow starts. Sure to go well this week. Padraig had "that" one awesome round and still drifted outside top-10. More consistency needed, could easily miss the cut here.
Zach Johnson to beat Matt Kuchar @ 2.23. "Kooch" is a great player, wonderful Mickelson-esque temperament and demeanour, plays well at Floridan tracks. However at great odds against, Zach Johnson is the call. Johnson has shot 8/12 under par rounds here, only missed one cut in 8 visits, and has a game suited to Sawgrass. Add in the fact that he's hot right now and stats back it up and he looks a very good bet.
Ernie Els to beat Keegan Bradley @ 1.87. Ernie has been hot for weeks now and just missed out in playoff at Zurich Classic. self-confessed Pete-Dye course fan and great record at TPC. Remember experience is everything at this course and Keegan Bradley is barely out of his rookie-trousers, but if one player can rip up the rule-books it's this KB. Could have a great week or could fall foul of Sawgrass' disregard for course novices. I want Els on side this week - he shouldnt miss the cut and that might be enough to land this bet.
Ryan Moore to beat Sean O'hair @ 1.917. Ryan Moore is hot right now, two top-10s in last two tournaments. Consistent record here, almost always makes the cut and has the right game for this course. O'Hair isn't the player he was 18-24 months ago but pretty consistent on tour this year, results tailed off a little of late.
Ian Poulter @ 2.16 to beat John Senden. Very little to choose between these two players. Senden is having another great season, only missed 1 cut in 10 and has 3 top-10 finishes to his name already. Senden has missed 3 cuts in last 5 years at TPC. Poulter has made 6 from 6 cuts and made top-10s in last two starts icluding T7th at Masters. Ian plays the big tournaments and tough courses well, he's a Florida resident these days and likes playing on the east coast. Poulter has finished inside top-30 on 4 from last 5 TPC including solo 2nd in 2009.
