The WGC - Mexico Championship - Odds and Predictions

WGC Mexico Championship Betting Lines

The biggest event of the year on both the PGA Tour and European Tour is this week in Mexico for the WGC - Mexico Championship. It brings all the great players on the planet together for the first time in 2017 and one of the few times all year. World No. 1 Dustin Johnson +600 headlines a betting field that includes 49 of the top 50 in the Official World Rankings.

Jordan Spieth +700, Rickie Fowler +1500, Henrik Stenson +1200, Justin Rose +1990 and defending champion Adam Scott +1750 lead the charge to hoist the trophy in Mexico’s first WGC Championship.

World No. 2 Jason Day had to withdraw with an ear infection.

VENUE: Club de Golf Chapultepec measures 7,330 yards and plays to a par 71. It’s one of the oldest tracks in Mexico, constructed in 1928 halfway between Mexico City and the suburb of Naucalpan. Willie Smith, the Scotland-born winner of the 1899 U.S. Open, was asked to design the layout but ran into problems during the Mexican Revolution and died in 1916 with the project unfinished. His brother Alex took over and saw the course until it was completed. Percy Clifford redesigned the layout in 1972 and further upgrades came in recent months to prepare Mexico’s first World Golf Championship.

LAST YEAR: Adam Scott became the only player ever to capture both ends of the old South Florida double, following up his Honda Classic victory by charging back from a six-shot deficit on the final 13 holes to earn his 13th win of his career. The Aussie seemed out of contention after two early double bogeys, but as most veterans do, he stuck with his game plan and quickly turned things around with six birdies in his next nine holes. He finished with three up and down pars to hold off Bubba Watson by a single stroke. It was Watson’s third runner-up finish at the Blue Monster.

WGC - Mexico Championship Predictions

The best VALUE on the board has to be Alex Noren +8800. He’s ranked in the top 15 in the world for a reason, he can play. He won four times on the European Tour last year and the former Oklahoma State star is due to win a big event. His game should be ideal for this week’s venue.

FADES:

Rory McIlroy +950 is back in action this week after taking several weeks off to tend to sore ribs. Anytime a player takes time off to heal, it takes time to get back in the groove. McIlroy will likely be in one of the “power matchups” paired up against the likes of Jordan Spieth and Dustin Johnson and won’t be up to the task. FADE RORY!

If Danny Willett +12500 is on the board, do yourself a favor and FADE him. The current Masters champ has lost his game, is fading fast and is not an elite player. Last week, he missed the cut and lost his matchup against fellow Englishman Matthew Fitzpatrick.

The WGC - Mexico Championship golf tournament is scheduled to start March 2-5, 2017. Club de Golf Chapultepec will host the event. The Golf Channel and NBC will televise the event.
