Bet on the HSBC Champions three-ball betting market
The sub-plot surrounding the HSBC Champions tournament is stronger than ever after a first round 66 saw Lee Westwood sit second on the leaderboard, but Tiger Woods’ 68 leaves him just three shots off the leader.
Phil Mickelson is a further shot behind Woods in the race to be world number one but Martin Kaymer’s incredible season seems to be losing its fizz after a even par round of 72 leaves him seven shots off the pace.
The first round scores have seen Woods and Westwood cut to 4/1 and 5/1 with Mickelson available at 12/1, but the winners market isn’t the only opportunity to have a punt in the HSBC Champions betting.
The three balls betting offers an opportunity to bet on the second round outcomes and theres plenty of value to be had after witnessing the first round form of the golfers.
Henrik Stenson, who has been plagued by injuries this season, finds himself towards the top of the leaderboard and is 7/4 to shoot a better second round score than Alvaro Quiros, 2/1, and Rickie Fowler, 6/4.
Fowler shot a 71 yesterday while Quiros shot a 74 and Stenson will be confident of continuing his low score through the second round.
Seung-Yul Noh is a 19-year-old Asian prodigy and he will be relishing being at the top of the leaderboard after shooting 67 in the first round.
While his challenge may peter out, Noh can continue this form in the second round where he is up against Adam Scott and Peter Hanson in the three-ball betting, and Noh is 7/4 to score better than both in the second round.
Rory McIlroy is up against Retief Goosen and Wen-Chong Liang and is 5/4 to score better than the two, but Goosen has been in his best form and is worth a punt at 11/8 after his opening round of 70.
Francesco Molinari leads and is 10/1 to win the HSBC Champions. See the full HSBC Champions betting odds here.
