Thailand Classic Vegas Odds
As the betting would suggest, this appears to be a wide-open event this weekend. Jordan Smith looks to hold solid claims, as he has been in excellent form over recent months. The Englishman finished in a tie for 17th at the Singapore Classic last weekend, but that put him just seven shots off the lead.
It wasn’t the best weekend for Robert MacIntyre, but the Scot remains incredibly consistent in the European Tour events. MacIntyre has made the cut in ten of his previous eleven appearances, which includes an excellent tie for 20th spot at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship earlier this year.
Nicolai Hojgaard also isn’t likely to be that far away this weekend. The 21-year-old finished in a tie for 13th earlier this month at the Ras Al Khaimah Championship, and he has already picked up victories in three professional events.
Thorbjorn Olesen could be another big danger in the betting this weekend. The six-time winner on the DP World Tour has been hitting the ball excellently this term, and the Danish star comes into this weekend after a fine finish in a tie for fourth at the Ras Al Khaimah Championship.
Thailand Classic Predictions
Kiradech Aphibarnrat looks set to be one of the most popular plays this weekend, as the 33-year-old plays in his home city. The Thai player has a strong mental edge, and that could be key to his chances this weekend with the pressures of playing in his home country.
He has won four previous events on the DP World Tour, and has won six events on the Thailand Tour, including his most recent professional victory in the Thailand Masters in 2021.
