Henrik Stenson and Justin Rose, along with the Jordan Spieth and Ryan Palmer pairing, have been pegged as the online golf betting favorites of the 2018 Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Those four will be looking to usurp the defending champs, Smith and Blixt. Interestingly enough, Smith and Blixt have teamed up together this time around. Clearly the duo are trying to live up to last year’s success. Smith has looked great and has managed to climb the world rankings. On the other hand, Blixt isn’t looking like his past self. While that duo is certainly a pairing worth keeping an eye out for, there are still a handful of other intriguing teams. Take a look.
2018 Zurich Classic of New Orleans || Interesting Matchups
Henrik Stenson/Justin Rose
Stenson and Rose will be vying to duplicate the Ryder Cup success they enjoyed. If they’re able to, the duo will be able to add another trophy to their team play closet. Although Rose hasn’t been as hot lately as we’re used to seeing, Stenson enters in great form. In fact, Stenson has been consistent all year long.
Jordan Spieth/Ryan Palmer
The two Texans display their great aggression in their play, although Palmer is the truculent of the two. Spieth got off to a rough start in 2018 but his putting has shown improvement since. On top of that, his iron looked great at Augusta National. Palmer has been somewhat quiet this year, but he’s certainly known for taking it up a notch around midyear.
Tommy Fleetwood/Chris Paisley
These two Englishmen enter on a rather hot streak. For starters, Fleetwood was last year’s European Player of the Year. On the other hand, Paisley has two top-5 finishes within the European Tour so far in 2018. No doubt about it, this duo is an excellent sportsbook betting option.
Bubba Watson/Matt Kuchar
This pairing is a deadly combination of strength and finesse. On one hand is Watson, who has a power and intensity off of the tee that is hard to match. On the other is Kuchar, who has a slow and cautious style that will be a perfect complement to Watson. Undoubtedly, this is definitely a duo worth keeping an eye out for.
