Craig Edwards previews the Shrinners Hospital for Children Open side markets delivering his best betting tips.
<div><h2>Shinners Open</h2><p><strong>October 3-6<br />Summerlin TPC<br />Las Vegas, Nevada</strong></p><h2><strong>BETTING TIPS AND PREDICTIONS </strong></h2><p>The PGA Tour schedule this week stops in Las Vegas and we have our own betting to do on the side markets.</p><p>The chances of former Shrinners champion and 2012 US Open champion <strong>Webb</strong> <strong>Simpson </strong>require inspection this week. He likes to begin his season at this tournament and has been a model of consistency with one victory and multiple top 20 finishes. He has been winless on the PGA Tour since winning the 2017 Players Championship but that does not mean he has been out of form, accumulating twenty top 20 finishes in the interim.</p><p><strong>Nick</strong> <strong>Watney</strong> is starting his fifteenth season on the PGA Tour and after winning five tournaments in the early years he has now gone seven years without a tournament victory. By no means does this mean he lost his ability to play and in fact there was in evidence last week at the Safeway Open that he was playing well. He is the type of player who grinds out high finishes and that can be perfect for betting on the place markets. This week's event has always been a regular stop on Watney's schedule, and he has an impressive resume of form with five top 20 finishes.</p><p>There can have been few if any more consistent players on the PGA Tour than <strong>Charles</strong> <strong>Howell </strong>over the years. Last week at the Safeway Open was his season opening tournament and he performed well finishing 4th. I expect him to be even sharper this week in Las Vegas and he has multiple top 20 finishes here over many years. In a career approaching twenty years on tour he has only three tournament wins, but his remarkable consistency has seen him earn over $37,000,000 and a position in the top 20 money earners of all time. He has a perfect look this week and is my <strong>banker</strong> selection.</p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=168&a=4417b7df-a48f-47f3-9b45-f79858bc083a&f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://images-production-euw2-753931602578.s3.amazonaws.com/5d582dcf927b95968483da5f/original-10-bet-new-customer-welcome-bonus" style="width:100%" /></a></p><p>Australian <strong>Cameron Percy</strong> has caught me eye in recent weeks on the PGA and Korn Ferry tours with four top 11 finishes in his last six events. Throughout the last twelve months he appears to have reached a new level of consistency at the age of Forty-five. When you look back through this ‘Journeyman professional’s’ career his best finish on the PGA Tour was back in 2010 with a runner up finish at the Shrinners Open. They are strong reasons to support him in the Top 20 and Top Rest of the World markets this week.</p><p>Australian <strong>Aaron</strong> <strong>Baddeley</strong> has always shown a liking for TPC Summerlin over the years with a couple of top 10 finishes. Last weeks 33<sup>rd</sup> at the Safeway Open was an encouraging start to the new season for the Australian and we can expect his game to be sharpened up for this week.</p><p>Scotland's <strong>Russell</strong> <strong>Knox</strong> has been underperforming for the last couple of years on the PGA Tour but last week's top 20 finish in his home country at the Dunhill Links Championship was an improvement. He has played solidly here throughout the years with a best finish was third at TPC Summerlin in 2014 and has the profile of a solid selection this week.</p><p>2018 PGA ‘Rookie if the Year' <strong>Aaron</strong> <strong>Wise</strong> had an unexpectedly poor season with his best effort being a Top 20 finish at the Masters. A poor second season for players that perform brilliantly in their rookie year is not uncommon in professional sport. The downside to having a superb first season is a player's expectations get lifted higher than normal for their second season. Many sportsmen have found those expectations difficult to deal with over the years. He has however, shown a liking for TPC Summerlin in previous years and he will be keen to re-establish himself on tour as soon as possible. This looks the perfect juncture for Wise to do that.</p><h2><strong>Recommended Bets </strong></h2><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&a=df66db4b-b019-4343-9fc7-6c4f20e2a356&f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Golf Betting Odds"><em><strong>Charles Howell – Top 20 @ 3.60 (13/5) Paddy Power </strong></em></a></p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Golf Betting Odds"><em><strong>Cameron Percy - each way – Top Rest of the World @ 31.00 (30/1) Bet365</strong></em></a></p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a&f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Golf Betting Odds"><em><strong>Cameron Percy – Top 20 @ 6.00 (5/1) Unibet</strong></em></a></p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&a=df66db4b-b019-4343-9fc7-6c4f20e2a356&f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Golf Betting Odds"><em><strong>Aaron Baddeley – Top 40 @ 4.33 (10/3) Paddy Power </strong></em></a></p></div>
