WGC Cadillac Golf Betting Odds, Preview and Money Back Special

Lost stake refunds if selection finishes second to McIlroy or Woods

Matt Kuchar (USA)

It will be a big pressure week for Rory McIlroy this week on the PGA Tour and WGC Cadillac Championship golf betting doesn’t have McIlroy on top. The world number one, and winner of both the PGA and European money lists last season hasn’t performed at all this season. His game isn’t quite firing and he walked off the course at the Honda Classic last week after a poor start to the tournament, with a toothache being blamed for his withdrawal. But what can’t be overlooked is his poor form already this season, as he is nowhere near his best. The expectation of winning won’t really be on him this week and it would be a great time for him to churn out a victory and silence all of his critics. The problems surrounding McIlroy at the moment has left Tiger Woods as outright favourite in WGC Cadillac Championship golf betting.

Tiger Woods has won three times during his illustrious career at the TPC Blue Monster. Driving is difficult at the course, with fairways hard to hit, so the experience of Woods’ here may carry him close again. Woods only managed a share of 37th at the Honda Classic last week and he withdrew from the last round here last season. However, you have to weigh up his wins on the course and the fact that he his worst finish has been a T10 there, and he should be a strong candidate and is a popular ante post target.

Matt Kuchar, the winner of the recent WGC Accenture Match Play will take some heavy backing in golf betting this week. He has never been outside of the top ten in his three previous cracks at the Blue Monster, taking a share of eighth last season. Good with the putter at the moment and his driving accuracy could get him close. South Africa’s Charl Schwartzel could also be in the kind of form that carries him well this week. Landed a decent top ten at the Honda Classic last week, and he hasn’t been outside of the top ten in eight stroke play tournaments starts this year. He was a runner up at the WGC Cadillac in 20110 and hit a T4 last year. Both should be very strong contenders.

The field goes deep for WGC Cadillac golf betting this week, with Justin Rose and Hunter Mahan not looking as if they are going to be too far away from the top of the leaderboard. There is also Luke Donald in the mix who has consistency at TPC Blue Monster where he has finished T6 for the past two seasons. Was superb with the irons in approach work here last year, in some very good form at the moment, and because hitting the fairways is tough, control over power is going to be necessary and that is where Donald will excel. Bubba Watson finished second at last year’s event and Australian Adam Scott has also been good in recent stroke play tournaments. Take any of the top contenders and if they finish second to Woods or McIlroy this week, then you can get lost stakes refunded at online bookmaker Betfred.
