Thanks for that, donny!Love I intend to do maybe twelve bets on this thread this year...Here is my logic for the above selections.

When you decide on a combination bet, you are confined to the offerings of that one bookmaker, in this case.(BS)

Dustin Johnson is a fantastic golfer...and his record here is better than Day's by a whisker
Dustin Johnson    10events  20.9    AF        69.34    AS
Jason Day    8      19.5              69.43


Two winners last time out.
In the past Dustin used the Farmers to knock off the cobwebs for this after his annual extended holiday, missing the cut there twice in three years before excelling at Pebble Beach there after.....but not this year....my conclusion is that he might run 'cold' here after a month off, and that makes 6/4 Day look..'logical'.

McIlroy's last visit here resulted in a missed cut in the 2010 US Open while Rahm's 5th on his maiden visit was very impressive.
Jon Rahm    1      5.0            68.75

Reed is as Reed does.....but figures like this make it a tall ask for Grace to best him on his first visit to the place
Patrick Reed    5          15.6            69.40

I rely on logic and when it does not work I go back to the drawing board and dig up some more......Good Luck to All.Cool

I feel like Tom Cruise in 'The Last Samurai'.....every time I get up,I get a belt of a stick. In my case it has been guys drawing their matches on the last hole to turn winning bets into losing ones...anyway ...enough whinging and self pity...not my style.Silly

To do the exact same thing and expect a different outcome is to be regarded as insane,Tom.
...so let's change it up a little and engage in a social experiment of a kind.

What is this 'draw stick' that keeps beating me? With BS it is called 16/1. In the case of Oman and the Honda this may be overpricing....Both these events have long established data over a specific venue which is an unusual happening in itself..I just hate the European Tour and the inconsistency of its many participants so therefore I will confine my investigation to the Honda,,,,for better or worse.

If you look at the patterns of scoring in both events there is usually about 5 points between the 12th and 48th player in these two events...ie a 'bunched scoreboard' which in effect means a lot of draws in match events...I took 7 of 8 matches on BS leaving out Rory and Garcia(too much pain)and I covered the draws in singles with a little bit of doubles action on the side....1 draw gives me my stake back...and that is all this weeks golf is worth....it is a 'duck shoot' in any language, you might hit something but not before you fill it full of lead...Good Luck to All and details of the bet to end all bets will follow below.ExcitedCrazy

methinks you are over complicating matters Plain

good luck sir

16/1 sounds weong, but i guess they have done their work?
Report mr meagi February 20, 2018 7:33 PM GMT
There are weeks when 16/1 seems below the mark but I think if you look at the results at the Honda for the last 6 years you might think that 16/1 this week is a tad generous...I look at

https://www.foxsports.com/golf/leaderboard


...anyway..it is a good inexpensive way to calibrate your instincts without any real outlay...I would not bet on the outrights in either tournament this week when 5 shots can move you from Top 10 to outside the Top 40 eg 2017....7 finished -4,6 were -3,10 were -2,6 were -1....etc that's 29 players within 4 shots.
Thanks Facts and donny for your input...lets see how the cards play on this...Confused
