DANNY WILLET TO BEAT JAMIE DONALDSON @ 2.09Final result: 0 - 1
Profit: 0.00 - 3 = -3
At this stage of the tournament, there's little point making an argument of current form for one player over another - given that the pairing reflects mutual identitical scores (in most cases). However, knowledge about the players and how they react to pressure, what accounted for their previous scores, etc. can occasionally find an edge.
All bets are draw-no bet.
A case in point is my first selection: Victor Dubuisson vs Bernd Wiesberger. Both have the same score after two rounds -3, yet Victor benefited from the benign morning conditions whereas Bernd had to battle through the afternoon winds. Bernd is an upcoming player and I am confident he will continue to go about his busiess professionally to the finish and will go low again - especially going out in the favoured ealy conditions. He is the marginal outsider of the pair which makes the bet of more value.
Peter Lawrie shot an ublemished -6 in the first round, and hadn;t dropped a shot until two consecutive bogeys on 15th and 16th of round 2. That's solid form. However, he seemed to defed what he had in round 2, and although he had the best of the day's conditiond he failed to build on his first day's work. In contrast, Gonzalez's first round was untidy and although he made 6 birdies, he dropped five shots to finish -1. In the second round, in less favourable conditions to Lawrie, he again gained 6 shots but only dropped one. He seemed to learn from the first day and attack more. There may not be much to choose between the two players, but I prefer the attacking play of Gonzalez and expect him to make birdies tomorrow - the test will be whether he can minimise the dropped shots. At odds against, he's the bet.
Danny Willet likes it round Wentworth and has enjoyed high finishes in this tournament before. He's been steady first two days and that;s the requirement for winning matchups, nore often than not its the other player who's loses the match. Donaldson have had 3 eagles in two rounds - which tells you how many dropped shots he's also let slip. He seems to be able to conjure up an eagle at the 4th. When that dries up, he may struggle...he didn't break par today in good conditions so I expect Willet's consistency to win the day. At odds against he's the selection.
