Cyprus Open Betting Preview for 2020 With Predictions, Pick, Sleepers, and Other Top Bets

| October 27, 2020 2:28 am PDT

The European Tour’s two-week stay on the idyllic island in the Mediterranean is upon us. The unveiling of Aphrodite Hills Resort begins on Thursday with a handful of household names set to take center stage.

I’ve got a lot of Cyprus Open predictions on my mind, so let’s dive into a tournament betting preview.

We’ll start by taking a quick peek at the pricing.

2020 Cyprus Open Odds to Win

Just two of the top 100 in the world are here – Andy Sullivan and Thomas Detry. And while it makes sense to install Sullivan as the favorite – and less than half the price as the next guy in line – +1200 seems a bit egregious.

I like Sullivan this week, but as Bob Barker would never say, “the price isn’t right.”

In terms of the guy standing out on the betting sheet, we’ll start my Cyprus Open pick to win.

Cyprus Open Pick – 2020 Winner

Perhaps considered a sleeper pick for the Cyprus Open, here’s how I landed on Marcus Armitage.

He’s got an appealing price tag at MyBookie and he’s been knocking on the door as of late. And oh yeah, he quietly ranks inside the top 50 in SG: Off-the-Tee, SG: Approach, and SG: Around-the-Green.

You can point to his putting if you want to nitpick the 33-year-old Englishman. At the same time, Armitage gains strokes on the field in that department as well.

Since notching a top-25 at the Irish Open, Marcus has posted back-to-back top-10s. All signs are pointing toward being on the cusp of a breakthrough performance. Here’s your chance to avoid being “too late” to the party.

Additional Predictions and Best Bets

Now for some more Cyprus Open predictions – specifically ones you can take advantage of at the top online betting sites.

Sami Valimaki to Finish Top 10

Worth a stab to hoist the trophy at +4500 at XBet, grabbing hold of Sami Valimaki to crack the top-10 gives us a bit of a cushion. The 22-year-old Finnish golfer has surged into the top 100 in the OWGR on the heels of three top-10s among his last six starts. Valimaki led the field in GIR last time out at the BMW PGA Championship (T13) and ranks 5th on the European Tour in SG: Putting.

Benjamin Herbert to Finish Top 20

T3-MC-MC-T19-MC. The discrepancies displayed in Benjamin Hebert’s recent game log are far from encouraging, however, a couple of top-20s are sprinkled in. What else is reassuring about this prediction for the Cyprus Open?

The fact that Hebert clocks in 5th on the European Tour in SG: Approach and 18th in SG: Around-the-Green.

Cyprus Open Sleepers

If the best bets for the Cyprus Open aren’t enough to quench your thirst, try wetting your beak on the following Cyprus Open sleepers.

Chris Paisley +8000

If you see Chris Paisley’s +7000 price tag at the top sites, keep shopping until you arrive at BetOnline. There you’ll find the European Tour’s leader in putting average at +8000 to win.

Dating back to his T4 at the Scottish Championship, Paisley is 27-under-par over his last eight rounds on tour.

Jonathan Caldwell +9000

After several attempts of playing full-time on the European Tour’s big-boy circuit, it looks like Jonathan Caldwell is finally settling into a groove.

Eight consecutive red numbers resulted in a 7th at the Scottish Championship and a 5th at the Italian Open. As we all know, few things in professional golf are more inspiring than positive momentum.

Surely one of these Cyprus Open predictions caught your eye. The question is, which ones piqued your interest enough to pull the trigger?
