Betting Note: Betting amounts are based on confidence level. My normal betting amounts are $125, $250 & $500, although I will go as low as $62.50 and as high as $1,000 on occasion. My most common bet is $125 and if you classify that as 1 unit, then I have made a 667.93 unit profit from 2014-2020. (full stats)

E/W (Each-Way) bets means you split that amount. So if it is a $250 E/W bet, that means $125 on them to win, $125 on them to place (Usually in the Top 5).

This week on the European Tour, we have the Lyoness Open – most popularly known as the Austrian Open.

The tournament preceding the US Open is always an interesting one with quite a lot of dark horses that can potentially win it. This will be the third time that this event is ahead of the US Open. There’s not a huge prize purse – but that’s okay. With a poor field, there are plenty of surprises and somewhere where we can hopefully find some value.

Austrian Open 2015 Betting Odds:

  1. Bernd Wiesberger: 9/2
  2. Chris Wood: 11/1
  3. Richie Ramsay: 14/1
  4. Rafael Cabrera Bello: 18/1
  5. Maximilian Kieffer: 20/1
  6. Tyrrell Hatton: 22/1
  7. Gregory Bourdy: 22/1
  8. Romain Wattel: 22/1
  9. Nicolas Colsaerts: 22/1
  10. Julien Quesne: 28/1

Wiesberger is the heavy favourite and the biggest name on the course. Joost Luiten is skipping it which is a shame as he is perfectly suited for this course. Let’s get to the betting tips:

Austrian Open Betting Tip #1: Daniel Im

Ever heard of Daniel Im? Don’t worry if you haven’t – he usually plays on the Challenge Tour.

Currently ranked #365 in the World, Daniel Im is coming into this on the back of some fine form. He has struggled a lot this year but we noticed him starting to step up his game – and he managed to bang out a win in the Swiss Challenge last time out.

Daniel Im is no stranger to this course either. He has played on it the last two years. He missed the cut 2 years ago, but last year at the Austrian Open he managed to come in 7th.

He’s a long shot bet and we’ll only be doing a quarter unit on him. But he may just surprise us.

Bet: We’re taking Daniel Im at 75/1 to win E/W for a quarter unit at

Austran Open Betting Tip #2: Lee Slattery

Slattery might just be sneaking into some form.

After a few missed cuts, he managed to get a Top 50 place followed by a Top 10 place last time out.

He’s played this tournament quite a few times – and the last two years he has connected very well. His GIR has improved on this course, and he’s played very solid. He’s had a 9th place and a 4th place in the last two years. He’s a bit of a risk – but then with golf when isn’t it risky? Wiesberger is favourite based mainly on his course form – we like the course form of Slattery here as well.

Bet: Half a unit on Lee Slattery to win E/W at 50/1 at Bovada for Americans.

That’s all we have for this week on the European Tour. Should be a very interesting course and it’s going to be one with a surprise winner we expect. We’d be very surprised if any of the Top 5 favourites win.

Since 2014 I've been providing free golf tips on a weekly basis. Each tournament analysis, research and writing the betting tips takes over 10 hours per tournament. That doesn’t include watching each tournament and taking notes etc. It's why I do less and less non-PGA tips these days.

I’ve delivered a lot of big winners over the years, and all I ask is if you appreciate the work I put in and so I can continue to keep the tips free, a donation is highly recommended and much appreciated.

While I obviously make enough money from my golf bets, this sort of financial support would motivate me to write more content on here. This would include golf prop bets like first round leader, head vs head and much more plus daily fantasy golf articles. Cheers!
