Golf Betting - Another Surprise Win At Canadian Open?

Golf betting players were astounded in 2008 at the Canadian Open, which was won by Chaz Reavie. This year's event will be held at Glen Abbey Golf Course for the 25th time, and this will be the 100th edition of this formerly prestigious tournament.

Reavie hasn't translated his win last year into success, which means he probably won't be a online sportsbook betting favorite this week. Reavie, a 27-year-old in his fifth year on the PGA Tour, has made only nine of 20 cuts this year and hasn't finished inside the top 15 since a 12th-place result at the Mercedes-Benz Championship, which was the first event of the season.

Sean O'Hair is coming off a disappointing T-65 at the British Open, breaking 70 in only the first round of the tournament when the weather was good. Still, he'll be one of the favorites in your gambling software as he finished third here last year, and he'll be eager to bounce back from his worst result of the year.

Camilo Villegas will be the highest-ranked golfer in the field this weekend, and he's coming off a solid T-13 in the British Open. He finished T-53 at the Abbey in 2008, but he'll have a ton of confidence coming into this event, and hios iron play will have a lot to do with that as he is 17th in greens-in-regulation.

Anthony Kim was T-8 here last year, and a missed-cut at the British Open stopped a solid run for the young American. But Kim ranks second on the Tour in birdies, and the Abbey has been known to yield low scores, so watch out for him this week.

Finally, hometown favorite Mike Weir will have the most support in the galleries, and the Ontario native finished T-5 here in 2008. Despite a missed cut at the British Open, Weir is still having a very good year, although his irons haven't been as good as they have been in the past. Weir almost became the first Canadian since Pat Fletcher in 1954 to win this event, but he collapsed down the stretch and handed the win to Vijay Singh in 2004. But anything can happen if you have the fans on your side, and you could do worse by making Weir one of your sports picks this weekend.
