2016 OHL Classic at Mayakoba Betting Preview

This week's tournament on the PGA Tour is the OHL Classic at Mayakoba and it promises to be an intriguing betting heat in Mexico. First held in 2007, the event has been held at the El Camaleon Golf Club every year but there has been a significant improvement in the quality of field on show in recent seasons as it was originally held as an alternate to the WGC Match Play before it was moved to the autumn in 2013...

The Leading Contenders

The OHL Classic carries added significance nowadays and that is highlighted by the head of the betting market, with Russell Knox currently a 16/1 favourite. The Scot, who won the Travelers Championship earlier this year, has picked up successive top-tens on the PGA Tour and was runner-up at El Camaleon in 2015.

Keegan Bradley has also picked up successive top-tens as he completed the feat for the first time since March 2013 and he is a 25/1 chance after he finished tied 8th here last year.

Jon Rahm (22/1) tied 10th here in 2015 and is looking to record a third consecutive top-fifteen of the new season, while Graeme McDowell is a 40/1 shot for his title defence and he is worthy of respect after going quietly about his business of late.

The Selections

Harris English must rank as a threat in this field as he racked up a record score of 261 (21 under par) when winning the OHL Classic in 2013 and he returns in very decent touch after making thirteen cuts in a row worldwide since The Players Championship. English produced four rounds of 67 en route to a tie for 4th at the Shriners in Las Vegas last week and he can build on that form this week.
Tip #1: Harris English (each way) @ 35/1 with Betfair.

We are also going to side with Marc Leishman after he tied for 5th at the CIMB Classic in what was his first start in six weeks. It is worth noting that Leishman is skipping his title defence at the Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa to be in Mexico this week as he looks to play his way into form prior to representing Australia at the World Cup.

The Australian has the added incentive of trying to secure his place in the top-fifty of the world rankings (he is currently 48th) and we fancy the 2015 Open runner-up can excel as he often prospers at coastal courses, while there are few better around the greens in this field.
Tip #2: Marc Leishman (each way) @ 50/1 with Bet Victor.

Finally. we are going to stick with Jason Bohn for another week as he often thrives at this time of year, not least when going 3-2-39-2 about twelve months ago. That run during the autumn of 2015 included a play-off defeat to McDowell at the OHL Classic as it enhanced his fine run of form at El Camaleon, where he has finished in the top-20 in all four visits, including a return of 3-7-2 in the past three years. Bohn is well worth a small each-way wager.
Tip #3: Jason Bohn (each way) @ 100/1 with Ladbrokes.
