Golf Tips | Houston Open In Play 4th-5th April 2015 | Sky Sports


AT the moment it’s looking very good for Louis Ross’s original picks, but we’ve asked him to give us an in play every Saturday. Starting here.

Shell Houston Open | 2nd-5th April 2015 | Sky Sports

Moving Day. A really great start so far. My main pick Phil Mickleson is one off the lead, Keegan Bradley just four and Paul Casey a further shot back. Saturday however is not known as Moving Day for nothing.

I don’t think anyone can see Michael Putnam, a second year Pro, retaining his lead and that means there is some tremendous value out there. If you are not on Phil already or if you fancy a value each way price for some interest in the weekend, I have a couple of suggestions. Anyone within eight shots is of interest at this point. A 63 or 64 today will put any of the top 40 or so golfers right in contention.

There does not appear to be any weather advantage in tee times today, so I am basing these suggestions on how these guys are playing but also a bit of EW value.

Jonas Blixt is leading the putting stats with just 23.5 per round. The Swede is just four shots back on -8 but is available at 80/1 with Stan James who are paying 1/4 the odds on four places. He is just two shots away from a place right now.

Our Top 10 tip, Keegan Bradley seems to have upped his short game and is playing the Par 5s perfectly. Another on -8 the 25/1 with Bet Victor looks big. Again 1/4 odds on the first four.

Personally, I am hoping that Phil can see this through. Jordan Speith is obviously the biggest danger. He is playing so well right now and to be honest 5/1 with 888 Sport is a very fair price. Should be a great finish on Sunday. Good luck all.

Best Bets

Houston Open – Jonas Blixt each way (80/1 Stan James)

Houston Open – Keegan Bradley each way (25/1 BetVictor)

I have been interested in betting since a stint managing a bookmakers 20 years ago. I now work in the travel industry but spend 90% of my day thinking (and talking)about sport. Rarely missing an Arsenal home game, I still find time for my 25 year obsession with the NFL and the Chicago Bears in particular. I'm still stuck in the 80's and can't find anything better to listen to than The Jam or The Smiths. I am a stats junkie where the NFL is concerned and there is no sport in the world where they matter more. My mission is to convert you all to a wonderful sport. Oh and win a few quid along the way.
