Nordea Masters - Odds and Predictions

Nordea Masters Betting Predictions

The Nordea Masters returns to Barseback Golf and Country Club for the first time since 2009. Swedes Henrik Stenson and Alex Noren headline the betting field. Both players are in good form. Noren won last week’s BMW PGA Championship and Stenson posted another top five.

With the U.S. Open just a few weeks away and the flagship event played last week at Wentworth, the majority of the elite European players are taking this week off leaving us with a below average betting field, but better than last year.

After Stenson and Noren, the field consists of a few other star players, Lee Westwood, defending champion Matthew Fitzpatrick and Chris Wood, but after that there’s a huge drop in skill level, filtered with non-experienced young players and veterans past their primes.

Westwood is a two-time champion in Sweden, Fitzpatrick closed strong last week in England with a closing round of 66 to claim a share of 12th and Wood is a hit or miss candidate that has the potential to win on any given week.

Last year Englishman Matthew Fitzpatrick blitzed the field for the first three days, building a commanding five-stroke cushion heading to the final day. He saw the lead cut to two at the turn but stayed poised to collect his second European Tour title in just 51 starts.

PREDICTIONS

Henrik Stenson vs. Alex Noren

These are the two favorites and two best playing this week. Noren is coming off a final round 62 that propelled him to victory at last week’s BMW PGA Championship. He’s won five times in his last 22 starts and quickly rising in the world rankings. However, Stenson is a member at Barseback Golf and Country Club and played the course more than anybody playing this week. Local course knowledge will be the difference in this power matchup - Stenson gets the cash!

Belgian Nicolas Colsaerts +4150 is finally turning the corner and playing solid golf again. After struggling to find his form in recent years, the long-hitting Colsaerts has put together a solid month, including a T3 last week at Wentworth where he closed with a 65. He has found some of his best form over the last few years on Swedish soil and his last three starts show 11-7-3. He also knows Barseback well and is 3-for-4 there with a best of T24 in 2006.

It’s too much of a gamble to back the flamboyant Frenchman Victor Dubuisson +4500 on a weekly basis. Sure, he has game, but he’s withdrawn from two of his last four starts. He’s so unpredictable that it’s not worth the trouble of backing him. FADE the FRENCHMAN!

The Nordea Masters golf tournament is scheduled to start June 1-4, 2017 at Barseback Golf and Country Club. The Golf Channel will televise the event.
