2018 Tshwane Open odds: Picks from same model that nailed Jorge Campillo's deep run
SportsLine simulated the 2018 Tshwane Open 10,000 times and has some surprising picks
The European Tour rolls on this week with a stop at the Tshwane Open, played at the Pretoria Country Club in South Africa. George Coetzee is the Vegas favorite at 12/1, followed closely by Alexander Bjork at 14/1 and Julian Suri at 18/1.
Before you make any bets or enter any kind of daily fantasy golf tournament on sites like DraftKings, you'll want to hear what the team at SportsLine has to say.
SportsLine's prediction model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, nailed three majors on the PGA Tour last year and is off to a hot start on the European Tour this year.
Two weeks ago at the NBO Oman Open, it predicted that Jorge Campillo would finish in the top five despite being a 33/1 long shot. The result: Campillo shot a 66 in the third round and a 68 in the fourth to surge to a fourth-place finish. It also nailed Coetzee's strong top-10 finish at the Qatar Masters last week.
Now that the field for the Tshwane Open is locked, SportsLine simulated the event 10,000 times and the results were surprising.
One golfer the model loves this week: Scott Vincent, a 33/1 long shot.
Vincent finished in the top five at the BMW SA Open earlier this year and is coming off a respectable performance at the ISPS Handa World Super 6 Perth in his previous outing, recording a 26th place finish.
Even though Vegas sees him as just a fringe top-10 contender in the Tshwane Open, the model predicts he'll make a serious run at the top five and could even be in play for the title. He's a value pick you should be all over this week.
One surprise: Erik Van Rooyen doesn't even crack the top 10.
That's surprising because Van Rooyen has the fourth-best Vegas odds at 25/1 and has two top-five finishes in his past five events on the European Tour, including a second-place performance at the Joburg Open. He's somebody to steer clear of this week.
Also, three additional golfers with odds of 30/1 or longer are positioning themselves to make a serious run at the title. Anyone who bets on these underdogs could hit it big.
