The PGA Tour heads to Mexico for the PGA Mexico Open at Vidanta, which features a world-class golfing field.
Headlining the golf betting markets is Jon Rahm, who is the only player paying less than +2000. The Spaniard has a stranglehold on the field, which means there is excellent betting value.
Let’s check the latest news, stats, injury reports, and Golf odds for PGA Mexico Open. We have plenty of predictions for you to consider.
Local Hero Overdue Win
Abraham Ancer is the leading hope for Mexico this week and after some tough performances, he could find inspiration.
Ancer missed the cut at the Valspar Championship and The Masters, so he’s looking for confidence and it often comes when playing in front of home fans.
He withdrew from a tournament a month ago due to undisclosed reasons, which is a concern. It leads us to believe he could be battling an injury, however, he’s a classy player who demands attention.
Golf odds have the 31-year-old at +2000, which is on the second line of betting, so, there is market confidence.
The one-time PGA Tour winner should be on your tickets and we think the local support could lift his game.
Pick: Abraham Ancer +2000
Chase Theory with Tringale
We don’t always recommend using the Chase Theory when betting, but it’s not a bad strategy when betting on golf.
There are certain players who are knocking on the door of their first individual PGA Tour victory, including Cameron Tringale.
The American has been around the mark of late and he played well at the Zurich Classic last weekend.
Tringale is good enough to win on the Tour, but he always falls just short. It has been painstaking for bettors who follow the 34-year-old, but he’s worth backing every week.
The sportsbook has Tringale at +3300, so he’s worth having on your ticket.
Pick: Cameron Tringale +3300
Lahiri Eyes First Tour Win
Anirban Lahiri has won a plethora of tournaments around the world, but the Indian has never won on the PGA Tour.
His performance when finishing second behind Cameron Smith at The Players earlier this year captured the hearts of golf fans. He played tremendous golf and it was great to see his family fly to watch him play.
He’s good enough to win the PGA Mexico Open and he has the backing of the great Jack Nicklaus.
“What a nice young man. Handles himself beautifully, and is a polite, good player. I have nothing against Cameron Smith, but when they were coming down the stretch, because I knew Anirban well, I was really rooting because I thought he would really help the game of golf in his country,” Nicklaus told the Hindu Star Times.
“He played really well. What did he lose by? One? I asked him, ‘You’ve got a couple of million dollars to soothe your wounds. And he said, ‘Yeah, but I’d have rather had the 3 million!’”
Lahiri is paying +6000, so he’s a value hope in what should be a hotly-contested tournament.
Pick: Anirban Lahiri +6000
Ortiz Banking on Home Crowd
Carlos Ortiz is hoping the home crowd at the Mexico Open is enough to see his form take a drastic turn for the better.
The Guadalajara native has missed the last four cuts, including at the RBC Heritage two weeks ago when shooting +3.
It’s not ideal form coming into this tournament, but the 2020 Houston Open winner is a PGA Tour winner, so he has enough talent to win.
He is also a Web.com winner in Mexico when taking out the 2014 El Bosque Mexico Championship by two strokes over Justin Thomas.
Ortiz has also recorded two top 20 finishes at the WGC Championship, which is played in Mexico, so he’s comfortable playing at home.
Bettors get +6600 and those odds are worth locking in as a saver bet.
Pick: Carlos Ortiz +6600
