1. Rory McIlroy – 5 to 1
Rory McIlroy is the pretty heavy favorite to win the 2015 DP World Tour Championship in Dubai this week. McIlroy won this tournament in 2012 and he finished tied for second place last year just two strokes off the winner. In his last start at the WGC-HSBC Champions Rory McIlroy finished tied for 11th place as the favorite in that tournament two weeks ago.
2. Henrik Stenson – 6 to 1
Henrik Stenson is the second choice in the betting to win the 2015 DP World Tour Championship, Dubai. Stenson could easily be favored to win because he has won this tournament the last two years in both 2013 and 2014. Outside of this tournament Stenson is poor bet but two wins in a row here is pretty impressive. Can he win it three times in a row? Stenson just finished tied for 3rd last week at the BMW Masters so he’s in good form.
3. Justin Rose – 8 to 1
Justin Rose has yet to win this tournament but he did finish tied for third here last year. Rose won the UBS Hong Kong Open a few weeks ago and he just finished tied for 7th place at the BMW Masters last week. So he is in really good form.
4. Patrick Reed – 14 to 1
Patrick Reed just lost a playoff last week in the BMW Masters to Kristofer Broberg. Reed is definitely on form as he’s played well over the last month. He was tied for 3rd at the Hong Kong Open and then he tied for 7th at the WGC-HSBC Champions.
5. Branden Grace – 20 to 1
Branden Grace also comes into this tournament in good form. Grace was 5th at the WGC-HSBC Champions and he tied for 22nd last week at the BMW Masters. Grace’s last win was at the 2015 Qatar Masters last January.
T-6. Ian Poulter, Danny Willett, Victor Dubuisson, Byeong-Hun An – 25 to 1 odds each
Ian Poulter is a money burner as he has not won anywhere since 2012. Danny Willett has three European Tour wins including the 2015 European Masters. He tied for 28th place last week after a 3rd place finish at the WGC-HSBC Champions. Victor Dubuisson won the Turkish Airlines Open three weeks ago and finished tied for 17th place last week. Byeong-Hun An was tied for third place last week at the BMW Masters.
T-10. Matthew Fitzpatrick, Bernd Wiesberger, Thongchai Jaidee, Louis Oosthuizen – 33 to 1 odds each
Talented 21 year old Matthew Fitzpatrick won the British Masters last month and he’s in good form and not a bad bet here. Wiesberger won a tournament a few months ago but has not played great lately. Thongchai Jaidee won the European Open at the end of September and he tied for 3rd last week. Louis Oosthuizen has not won since January of 2014.
T-14. Charl Schwartzel, Luke Donald, Emiliano Grillo, Lucas Bjerregaard, Shane Lowry – 40 to 1 odds each
Emiliano Grillo won for the first time a month ago at the Frys.com Open on the PGA Tour. Shane Lowry won the 2015 WGC-Bridgestone back in August but he’s been off form his last two tournaments. Lucas Bjerregaard has yet to win but he’s knocking on the door with a 2nd at the Hong Kong Open and a tie for 3rd last week. Charl Schwartzel and Luke Donald are money burners who have not won in a few years.
- Kristoffer Broberg – 66 to 1 odds
Kristoffer Broberg just beat Patrick Reed last week in a playoff to win the BMW Masters. That was Broberg’s first career win. It’s usually tough for a player to come right back and win again after the emotional thrill of winning for the first time.
- Lee Westwood – 50 to 1 odds
Lee Westwood is notable here because he won this tournament back in 2009. Westwood is always a threat because he’s got tons of talent and 23 European Tour wins. But he was just tied for 51st in his last start a few weeks ago.
