Jon Rahm Poised to Win First Race to Dubai Title
There might not be a worldwide golfer who has been as hot as Jon Rahm has been in the last six months – the Spaniard has posted two victories (including in his last start), to go along with four other top-3 finishes on both the PGA and European Tours.

In addition to his sizzling play in the last half year, Rahm has been lights out on this golf course as well, finishing T-4th last year and winning the whole thing in 2017. In ten of his last eleven events, the fiery 25-year-old has just one missed cut with his worst result otherwise being a tie for 13th. Suffice to say, despite the relatively low +650 odds, he’s worth the wager this week in Dubai.

Past Five DP World Tour Championship Winners
2019 DP World Tour Championship Best Value Picks
- Louis Oosthuizen (+2200): Has been contending deep into the back nine in each of his last two tournaments – the Nedbank Challenge and WGC-HSBC Champions before finishing third and sixth. Has two career top-six finishes at this event.
- Matthias Schwab (+3300): Living legend Ernie Els recently said Schwab is the young gun to most look out for in the future. The 24-year-old Austrian has been firing on all cylinders of late with three top-4 finishes in his last four starts including a tie for second in his last tournament (lost in a playoff.)
- Danny Willett (+4000): He’s the defending champion and also won two months ago at the BMW PGA Championship. Hasn’t been clicking as much in the five tourneys since that victory but in a limited field and with great course history, the odds are too good to pass up.
- Thomas Detry (+6600): Due to break through on the big stage for his first victory. Finished T-3rd in his last event at the Nedbank Challenge. T-8th and T-32nd in two tournaments before that. Check BetOnline for these odds as opposed to Bovada that has him listed at +5000.
Let's have fun and keep it civil.
