The Bob Hope Chrysler Classic may not be one for the purists, but there is plenty to get excited about in the golf betting.
Bill Haas won the tournament last year with a formidable score of 30 under-par and is third favourite in the golf betting with odds of 16/1 to retain his title.
While 30 under is an impressive score, it’s the kind of low number that needs to be posted to have any chance of claiming first prize.
The event is a pro-am, played over four of the easiest courses on the tour – the PGA West’s Palmer Private, PGA West’s Nicklaus Private, Silver Rock’s Palmer Course and La Quinta Country Club.
American Steve Marino is starting to look like the player he always threatened to be and could take advantage of the favourable scoring conditions after finishing second in the Sony Open last week. Marino has yet to win on the PGA Tour but everything points to that changing this week.
Marino lead the field in greens in regulation in Hawaii and if he can keep up his brilliant iron play he should give himself plenty of birdie opportunities – a must for any player looking to win this week.
His odds of 25/1 looks like an extremely tempting bet – especially if you take advantage of Ladbrokes free £25 bet offer by clicking here. You could bag yourself a very tidy £650 for your free bet if the American continues his promising form.
