2016 Australian Open odds and preview – Royal Sydney Golf Club

November 16, 2016

jordan spiethThe 2016 Australian Open takes place over four days from Thursday 17th to Sunday 20th November 2017 at Royal Sydney Golf Club in Sydney.

One punter at online bookmaker Sportsbet has had $100 on Australia’s recent Las Vegas winner Rod Pampling at $201.

Sportsbet punters believe Pampling’s win in Las Vegas earlier this month was no fluke, with the 41 year old the best backed player to win the Australian Open starting tomorrow.

Pampling finished fourth in the Australian Open last year at the Australian Golf Club with -6, two shots behind winner Matt Jones, and is a $201 chance to back up his win on the US PGA Tour.

Fellow Aussie Cameron Smith is the next most popular with punters and is on the fourth line of betting at $21. Smith went around at even par last year to finish equal 13th on the leaderboard.

Superstars Jordan Spieth $4.00 and Adam Scott $4.50 are clearly the two to beat but so far, the largest wager placed on Scott is $286 and for Spieth just $100.

Spieth and Scott finished equal runner-up in the 2015 Australian Open with -7 and should be in contention once again on the final day at Royal Sydney.

World Long Driving champion Jamie Sadlowski has attracted six bets at the huge price of $751 including one stake of $20 for a potential collect of $15,020.

“Rod Pampling turned back the clock in Vegas and it seems punters have become caught up in the fairytale,” said Sportsbet’s Christian Jantzen.

Some of the interesting bets on the 2016 Australian Open include:

  • $100 on Rod Pampling at $201
  • $2 on Jin Jeong at $1,001
  • $20 on Jamie Sadlowski at $751
  • $10 on Robert Allenby at $151
