Just days after Brooks Koepka’s incredible final round comeback to win the U.S. Open, the European Tour resumes with the BMW International Open this week. Some of the best on the European Tour will make their way to Pulheim, Germany and the Golf Club Gut Laerchenhoef to compete with U.S. Open runner-up Tommy Fleetwood set to headline this week’s field. We took the time to break down the list of sports betting favorites, the next line of contenders and the sleeper picks worth considering at this event. Here is a look at the best bets to win the BMW International Open this week. Odds are courtesy of BetDSI.
Event: BMW International Open
Date: June 21st-24th2018
Location: Golf Club Gut Laerchenhoef, Pulheim, Germany
Past Five Winners
2017: Andres Romero -17
2016: Henrik Stenson -17
2015: Pablo Larrazabal -17
2014: Fabrizio Zanotti -19
2013: Ernie Els -18
Tommy Fleetwood +700
There are some major question marks surrounding Fleetwood as the sports betting favorite to win this tournament outright. First of all, he is coming off an excellent performance at the U.S. Open but could have to overcome fatigue after travelling across the Atlantic back to Germany without much of a break. Second, there isn’t exactly much value betting Fleetwood to win at +700 odds. While he has the skill set to contend, it might make more sense to pass on Fleetwood at the BMW International Open this week.
Sergio Garcia +1400
Garcia is the only top-50 player in the world other than Fleetwood that will take part in this week’s tournament. Unlike Fleetwood, Garcia missed the cut at the U.S. Open so he should be a little fresher. However, Garcia has really struggled overall of late with missed cuts in five of his previous six starts. As is the case with Fleetwood, it might make more sense to pass on Garcia this week.
Andy Sullivan +1600
Sullivan has looked good on the European Tour this season including a seventh place finish at the Trophee Hassan II and a third place finish at the Rocco Forte Sicilian Open. A three-time winner in 2015, Sullivan could very well be the best bet to win this tournament among the sports betting favorites. At +1600 odds, he is definitely worth consideration to bet on at the BMW International Open this week.
Next In Line
Thorbjorn Olesen +2200
Olesen has never been the most consistent golfer on the European Tour but he could be a solid option this week at the BMW International Open. First of all, he is coming off a win at the Italian Open last month and should be in decent shape after missing the cut at the U.S. Open. Second, Olesen was the runner-up at this tournament two years ago so we know he has the skill set to contend here. At +2200 odds, Olesen should be an excellent sports betting option this week.
Thomas Pieters +2500
Pieters is still one of the better talents in this field but his recent results are less than inspiring. Pieters is coming off missed cuts at The Masters and the BMW PGA Championship and he really hasn’t shown much overall this season. Considering he is listed in this group at +2500 odds, it might make more sense to pass on Pieters this week.
Lucas Bjerregaard +3300
Bjerregaard has been incredibly consistent on the European Tour so far this season with top-six finishes at the China Open, the Sicilian Open and the BMW PGA Championship where he placed third. He is still looking for his first win but the fact that he seems to be in contention every single time out makes him a very intriguing option. Factor in that Bjerregaard is available at +3300 odds and Bjerregaard should be an excellent betting option at the BMW International Open.
Thongchai Jaidee +8000
Jaidee appeared to be trending in the wrong direction before making the cut at five of six events including a T-8th at the BMW PGA Championship. The biggest surprise this week is that he is listed at just +8000 odds. Jaidee has the talent to contend for the outright win and yet he is listed at much longer odds than some other options that bettors would be wise to completely avoid this week. At that price, Jaidee is an outstanding sleeper pick to contend for the win at the BMW International Open
Oliver Fisher +11000
Speaking of sleeper picks for this week, Fisher’s +11000 price tag makes him another option that you should consider this week. He placed in the top-10 in Belgium and then finished just outside of the top-20 at the Rolex series event in Italy so he has shown that he can compete on the European Tour this season. The fact that he has made the cut in three of his last four starts at this course including a 12th place finish makes him that much more interesting. At ridiculously long odds, it’s worth considering Fisher a deep sleeper pick to contend at the BMW International Open this week.
