Picks for the 2021 Cazoo Classic – Best Bets on the European Tour This Week
Home to several professional events over the years, London Golf Club returns to the European Tour schedule to host the 2021 Cazoo Classic. With most of Europe’s top golfers stateside getting ready for the FedEx Cup Playoffs, the field in Ash is a tad light. However, fewer big names to contend with simply opens the door for the unheralded names to push toward contention.
On that note, I’ll begin my series of Cazoo Classic betting picks with a glance at a couple of sleepers.
Two Sleeper Picks for the Cazoo Classic
Considering Bernd Wiesberger (+1600) is the only individual priced under +2200 at the best golf betting sites everyone in the field is somewhat of a longshot.
Chase Hanna (+4500)
In May, this red-hot American golfer was ranked outside of the top 1,200 in the Official World Golf Ranking. Three months later and Chase Hanna sits 247th in the OWGR. How has he done it?
Hanna has finished 7th or better in six of his last eight starts. And while six of those tournaments were on the Challenge Tour, his most recent two starts were European Tour Events.
6th at the Cazoo Open, 6th at the Hero Open, and here’s confirmation that this kid is for real.
The University of Kansas product paced the field at the Hero Open in SG: Tee-to-Green.
David Law (+4500)
Watching fellow Scotsman Grant Forrest win last week in Fife serves as added motivation for David Law to get over the hump. Law arrived at Fairmont St Andrews having made seven consecutive cuts – make that eight in a row after David wowed on his home turf.
Going back to his 15th at Galgorm Castle and 18th at Celtic Manor, it’s clear that Law’s on the cusp of a breakthrough performance.
Matchup Bet – John Catlin (-110) Over Victor Perez
These former teammates at the University of New Mexico are headed in opposite directions. John Catlin has won twice in the last 12 months; he’s rested since tallying a T7 at the ISPS HANDA World Invitational.
Meanwhile, the pressure of trying to make the European Ryder Cup team has clearly gotten to Victor Perez.
Since popping at the WGC-Match Play with a 4th-place finish, here’s what Perez’s game log looks like.
|Victor Perez’s Results Since April – The Struggle is Real|
|WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational||61|
|The Open Championship||MC|
|The Memorial Tournament||MC|
He’s failed to play the weekend all but twice and hasn’t even sniffed the top-50.
Expecting the negative trend to continue, this is one of the Cazoo Classic predictions bettors should be looking to hammer.
Top-20 Finish – Vincent Norrman (+110)
After turning in a stellar campaign at Florida State, many touts thought it would take Vincent Norrman some time to get his feet wet on the big stage. After all, he just turned pro in June.
Five starts on the European Tour later – four of which have resulted in top-12 finishes – it’s time for those “so-called experts” to start singing a different tune.
The 23-year-old Swede leads the European Tour in SG: Off-the-Tee, and here’s an idea of how far he hits it.
I’d happily lay -110 that Vincent cracks the top-20 in this field; getting +110 on my money makes this a green-light special.
Cazoo Classic Pick to Win in 2021
Matthew Jordan strolls into London GC, oozing with momentum. Finishing 18th or better in four of his last six starts is accentuated by a T6 last week in Scotland. Highlighting his week in Fife is the fact that Jordan racked up a whopping 27 birdies at the Torrance Course.
Angling for his first victory on the European Tour, I suggest considering his +3500 price tag at XBet. Jordan’s priced at +3000 to win at some of the other top sites.
To shine a more vivid light on what the 25-year-old Englishman has been up to, here’s a quick assessment of his stats from last week.
Jordan ranked 6th in SG: Off-the-Tee, 21st in SG: Approach, and 7th in SG: Around-the Green (4th in SG: T2G). A hot few days with the putter and Matthew will be in the mix at the Cazoo Classic.
