2017 Hero Indian Open Betting Preview

Fresh from successfully backing Dean Burmester to win the Tshwane Open last week, attention turns to an event that is co-sanctioned by both the Asian and European Tours. There will be a new course for this week's edition of the Hero Indian Open as the newly designed Gary Player Course at the DLF Golf and Country Club in New Delhi takes over hosting duties from the Delhi Golf Club and it is fair to assume that length off the tee will be a key statistic at a track that weighs in at over 7,650 yards...

The Leading Contenders

Anirban Lahiri heads here as the bookmakers' favourite and the top-ranked Indian is sure to be a popular pick at 8/1 (Bet Victor). Lahiri won this tournament in 2015 - one of four career victories on home soil - before finishing runner-up during his title defence last year and he arrives off the back of four top-25 finishes in five starts on the PGA Tour, including a tie for 11th at the Honda Classic.

Lahiri's price is a touch on the short side for us but he has obvious claims, although the same cannot be said of Rafa Cabrera-Bello, who is the highest ranked player in the field. The world number 26 tied for 38th at the WGC Mexico Championship last week but he fails to get over the line with enough regularity to justify his current price of 11/1.

The Selections

Instead, we prefer to back Peter Uihlein as the American has embarked upon a run of consistency that we don't always associate with him. Uihlein has made seven consecutive cuts, racking up four top-fifteen finishes, and he finished like a train en route to a 4th place finish at the Tshwane Open on Sunday. With length off the tee likely to prove vital, Uihlein is primed to win a first European Tour title since his Madeira Islands Open success in 2013 and he has finished in the top-fifteen in three of his last four appearances in Asia.
Tip #1: Peter Uihlein (each way) @ 16/1 with BetVictor.com.

Continuing with the big-hitters theme, Scott Hend ranks as a very decent 40/1 chance and he will relish the chance to tee up in a weaker field after plying his trade on the PGA Tour recently. The Australian is actually the second-highest ranked player in the line-up and the 43-year-old, who has won eight times since 2012, is capable of producing a performance out of nowhere.
Tip #2: Scott Hend (each way) @ 40/1 with Paddy Power.
