Betting Preview for the 2020 DP World Tour Championship With Odds, Predictions, and Best Bets

| December 7, 2020 12:45 pm PDT

Patrick Reed is on track to become the first American to win the Race to Dubai in the history of the European Tour. Collin Morikawa could also claim the title despite never competing in a regular European Tour event.

I know, I’m still trying to figure that one out.

With a stacked field set to tee it up at the Earth Course at Jumeirah Golf Estates, let’s jump into some DP World Tour Championship predictions. We’ll start with the tournament’s odds.

2020 DP World Tour Championship Odds to Win

Nothing stands out from Patrick Reed’s T28 at the 2019 DP World Tour Championship – other than the fact that he only broke par once. With that being said, Reed’s recent form – combined with the fact that he’s currently leading the Race to Dubai standings – more than warrant him being installed as the betting favorite. The world’s 11th-ranked golfer arrives in Dubai, having posted five consecutive top-15s.

Also worth noting, Christiaan Bezuidenhout strolls into the Earth Course scorching with momentum.

Back-to-back wins on South African soil have surged Bezuidenhout into the top 5 in the Race to Dubai rankings. The 26-year-old finished 12th here in 2019.

Now that you’ve glanced at the odds check out my DP World Tour Championship picks.

DP World Tour Championship Pick – 2020 Winner

Forget about his 46th-place finish at last year’s DP World Tour Championship. If you need proof that Tyrell Hatton can play well at the Earth Course, just scroll through his results at this venue.

Year Finish at the DP World Tour Championship
2014 6th
2015 13th
2016 2nd
2017 8th
2018 22nd
2019 46th

Rested since producing a top-25 at the RSM Classic, the feisty Englishman is a good bet to go out on a high note. Since winning the at Wentworth in October, Hatton continues to knock on the door – adding a T3 at Shadow Creek and a T7 in Houston.

Nothing about Tyrrell’s DP World Tour Championship odds are screaming with value, but we’ve seen nothing but “proven commodities” hoist the hardware at the Earth Course since 2012

Winners of the DP World Tour Championship Since 2012

2012 Rory McIlroy
2013 Henrik Stenson
2014 Henrik Stenson
2015 Rory McIlroy
2016 Matthew Fitzpatrick
2017 Jon Rahm

Those of you making DP World Tour Championship predictions, you could do a lot worse than backing the 10th-ranked golfer in the world.

Best Bets for the DP World Tour Championship

Hatton is my pick to win, but there are other ways to make money betting golf online. The top-10 and top-20 markets are a great avenue to attack this week’s European Tour event.

Here are two of my best bets for the DP World Tour Championship.

Martin Kaymer to Finish Inside the Top 10

Armed with top-10 finishes in four of his last seven starts, Martin Kaymer is back at the European Tour’s season-ending event after missing out on the action in 2019. A deadly combo of ranking 12th in GIR and 7th in Putts per GIR has enabled Kaymer to string together a bunch of solid rounds. In fact, Martin has fired 11 straight red numbers upon his arrival.

Thomas Pieters to Finish Inside the Top 20

The relatively new father got his feet wet at the Jumeirah Golf Estates by finishing 25th at the Fire Course last week. Then again, 6th at the Earth Course in 2019 and 12th in 2018 tell me Thomas Pieters is more than comfortable at this week’s layout. If Thomas putts halfway decent, a top-20 finish is imminent.
