The next leg of the PGA Tour continues to rumble on, and next in the schedule is of course the WGC Mexico Championship which is being held at the Club de Golf Chapultepec course.

As you would expect from this event, and its prize purse of a whopping $10,000,000 there are plenty of golfers who have their eyes on that purse, and will be hoping to take a good chunk of it back home with them.

For once, I have seen quite a number of betting sites and bookmakers too offering some fairly generous odds on the golfers taking part in this year’s WGC Mexico Championship, and as such if you get your bets and wagers placed before the event actually starts, and for reference it is schedule for the 1st to the 4th of March 2018, as you can then you can snap up some value with those bets and wagers!

There are two golfers that do catch the eye in this tournament and they are Dustin Johnson whose current odds in the early betting markets on the WGC Mexico Championship are 13/2 and also Justin Thomas whose odds are 8/1.

Both of them have form that does give them something of an edge in this festive of golfing, however, as is always the case, it is going to be how they play over the tournament that will determine if they do win or at least get placed in one of the prize paying positions on the leader board!

Value to be had by Each Way Betting

As you have just found out the odds associated with the two favourites to win this tournament are fairly high, and that does of course mean all of the other golfers taking part in it have some even higher odds associated with them.

However, as most bookmakers and betting sites have each way betting rules in place on this golf tournament that state they will pay one fifth of the odds for the place part of an each way bet and will also pay up to six positions, it may be beneficial for you to consider placing such a bet.

At one fifth of the win odds for the place part on an each way bet that does of course mean if you bet on Jon Rahm at 10/1, Jordan Spieth    at 14/1, Rickie Fowler at 16/1 or even Justin Rose at 18/1 via an each y bet, as long as they get placed on the leader board at the end of the event in one of the top six places, then you will be showing a profit on such a bet.

A few other each way betting opportunities include Tommy Fleetwood who I do think has an excellent chance of at least being placed at odds of 18/1, Phil Mickelson whose odds are currently 22/1 and also Alex Noren at 25/1 or even Sergio Garcia who is on offer at 28/1, so do consider some of those golfers too.

Rank Outsiders to win the WGC Mexico Championship

I don’t know about you, but I often place some rather speculative bets on the early betting markets of golf tournaments especially, for there is always the chance that one of the rank outsiders could suddenly play up to or even surpass their very best form, and if the one is have selected does, then I am in line for a very big payday, if they win or at least get placed that is.

Therefore, today I will be tossing a coin so to speak in regards to picking out one of the following golfers for whist their respective win odds are huge, experience really has taught me that anything can and often does happen in golf tournaments!

Both Bernd Wiesberger                and Dean Burmester could be worth a punt at their respective odds of 200/1, or for a little more value Jorge Campillo, David Lipsky and Satoshi Kodaira all have some very appealing and high odds of 250/1 on them winning this event.

I could decide to bet on either Yusaku Miyazato or Gavin Green at 300/1, or even take something of a major punt on Abraham Ancer, Brett Rumford, Chan Kim, Wade Ormsby or Yuta Ikeda as their odds are all massive at 400/1!

Two golfers that I do not think are going to have any possible chance of winning, and most betting sites and bookmakers agree though are Brandon Stone and Adam Bland as their respective odds are a whopping 500/1!
