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 in the European Tour, it is the Omega European Masters – more commonly known as the Swiss Open. It is played at the iconic Crans-sur-Sierre course; an absolutely phenomenal course and a real fun one to play it.

It gained a lot of notoriety in 2006 when Michelle Wie played at it. She finished dead last.

It’s a great course that in recent years has been dominated by Thomas Bjorn. The Dane has won it twice in recent times; 2011 and 2013. Both performances very impressive.

Last years winner was the American, David Lipsky.

Here are the betting odds for the Omega European Masters:

  2. Bernd Wiesberger: 14/1
  3. Danny Willett: 16/1
  4. Patrick Reed: 20/1
  5. Tommy Fleetwood: 20/1
  6. Lee Westwood: 22/1
  7. Jamie Donaldson: 22/1
  8. Victor Dubuisson: 25/1
  9. Thongchai Jaidee: 28/1
  10. Richie Ramsay: 30/1

Some interesting odds for sure in what is a solid enough field. Let’s get to the tips:

Swiss Open Betting Tip #1: Tommy Fleetwood

Tommy Fleetwood was one of our betting tips last week in the British Open. He didn’t deliver unfortunately – but we think there’s still more to come from Tommy and will back him again this week for a full unit.

He has had solid results here in the past. His last two tournaments here have seen him come 9th and 5th. This is a tournament that Tommy enjoys. Going back and watching the last couple of years you can see that Fleetwood has fun at this course. And sometimes – that’s all it takes.

We’ll be backing Tommy Fleetwood at 20/1.

Bet: Full unit bet on Tommy Fleetwood to win and E/W at 20/1 odds at Bovada for Americans.

Swiss Open Betting Tip #2: Jamie Donaldson

We’ll go with a quarter unit bet on Jamie Donaldson. 22/1 odds make it a little bit tricker to bet bigger on him – as much as we’d want to.

Donaldson has been in great form here. In recent years he has had 3 top 10 finishes. Also after a bad bout of form he’s made the last 3 cuts and finished in the top 50s.

The bookies are wise to him though hence the short odds at 22/1. Despite that we think there is just enough value and with him starting to heat up – that this should be a bet.

Bet: Jamie Donaldson E/W 22/1 at

Swiss Open Betting Tip #3: Victor Dubuisson

He’s been playing more European events this season, and that’s where we’re seeing Dubuisson excel. It’s been nice to see as he has had a lot of relaxed play and was 10th at the Scottish Open and 12th at the French Open.

We’re getting better odds on him due to the majors he has played – he’s looked very poor at The Open, the US Open, The Masters and the WGC events. But there is no doubting his skill, and a 3rd place finish in 2013 shows he knows how to handle this course.

We’ll go with a quarter unit bet on Dubuisson as we’re not full confident and wish the odds were slightly higher.

Bet: 25/1 Dubuisson to win and E/W at

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!
