Omega European Masters Betting Preview

Crans-sur-Sierre is a golf course where precision matters more than power. The course is a Par 72 and measures about 6,340 yards, giving golfers a modest challenge if they are coming in with positive momentum.

The fairways can give the ball some extra rolling time, as they are fairly sloped throughout. There are plenty of trees lining the fairways and there are six holes that have some water in play.

Thriston Lawrence is the defending champion of this event and finished -18 in a playoff. That score has not been reached since 2014. His odds, however, are nearly +8000 to repeat.

Golfers with Best Chance to Win

These golfers stand out as strong contenders for victory or a top-10 finish at the Omega European Masters.

Nicolai Hojgaard +1800

Choosing the leader in strokes gained per round makes the most sense to win an event, as Hojgaard has been great so far. He is currently ranked as the 19th best player in the DP World Tour rankings.

Thorbjorn Olesen +4500

Olesen is worth some attention, as this could be the event that gets him back on track. He is currently ranked as the 18th best in the DP World Tour. He is also coming off of a T11 finish back in the D+D Real Czech Masters.

Ludvig Aberg +1800

Aberg is returning to action after a T4 finish at the D+D Real Czech Masters. Prior to that, he had a T14 result at the Wyndham Championship. He has all the skills needed to take over this event.

Game Odds, Series Trends and Free Pick

As per the latest moneyline odds provided by MyBookie, it is evident that the 2023 Omega European Masters has these top five golfers as the frontrunners for victory.

  • Matt Fitzpatrick: +800

  • Ludvig Aberg: +1800

  • Adrian Meronk: +1800

  • Nicolai Hojgaard: +1800

  • Matt Wallace: +2200

Matt Fitzpatrick +800

Fitzpatrick is a two-time champion of this event and he won those back to back in 2017 and 2018. He won with a -14 in 2017, but then won in 2018 with a -17.

He is coming off of a good performance at the BMW Championship. His current rank of eighth in the PGA Tour makes him one of the more dangerous golfers in the field. He has some of the best momentum coming into this tournament, making him an appealing choice here.
