Estoril Open de Portugal- 2010

A very weak field for this weeks event in Portugal which is a bit disappointing following the blogs winner in Graeme McDowell last Sunday at Celtic Manor. The favourite this week is Chris Wood, who was tipped by the blog in Wales, but having opened as the first round leader he faded badly suggesting that he may be knackered and therefore find no value in backing him this week at such low odds. In fact I have found it difficult to find a good wind player in the field who could win at good odds and could eventually only narrow it down to Canizares, Colsaerts & Bjorn, but is the Spaniard I will put up this week. The young man should have the game to excel here, especially in the wind and as the weather forcast is promising VERY WINDY conditions have omitted Colsaerts from my selection process. The Belgium, along with Jamie Donaldson, have been ultra consistent the past 2 months but this may not be their week. As Alejandro is out early enough on Thursday morning too, I am putting him up for 1st rd leader also @ 25/1 (Boylesports). Canizares best odds are 15/1 with Betpack but its a win only bet of 2pts this week for the blog.

As this blog put up Brian Gay to win the St Jude Classic last year, which he duly obliged, I have had aquick look at the field for this weeks event and actually feel its between Gay, Heath Slocum & David Toms. As Gay has excellent form here (not as proficient tho as Toms) , I will be backing Gay again to defend @ 25/1.
