Acciona Open de España: Betting tips and predictions as Rahm goes for three

Jon Rahm is looking to deliver his third straight victory at the Open de Espana. 

The tournament returns this week after a one-year hiatus thanks to the global pandemic and the world's best golfer makes his return to action after the Ryder Cup. 

Rahm was the standout performer for Europe and told the golfing world he had to play "f***ing amazing" to deliver his total of 3.5 points through five matches. 

The Spaniard is joined this week by a very strong field. Bernd Wiesberger looks to continue his good form, while Victor Perez and young Italian superstar Guido Migliozzi is also pegging it up. 

Notable Brits include Andy Sullivan, Marcus Armitage, Eddie Pepperell and Luke Donald. Daniel Gavins fresh off a recent victory and a good performance at the links is playing too. 

Here are some selected odds: 

Jon Rahm 9/4

Bernd Wiesberger 20/1

Guido Migliozzi 33/1

Calum Hill 40/1 

Masahiro Kawamura 40/1

Here are our betting tips: 

Jon Rahm 9/4

He's the best player on the planet and his career is still relatively in its infancy. He won his home championship in 2018 and 2019 by two and five shots. There isn't really a case to make against Rahm. Most of the field will probably be playing for second. 

Adri Arnaus 45/1

A powerful, young player. Hitting it long off the tee is his biggest strength but also his biggest weakness. He'll need to get more in play if he is to seriously challenge. He has a good record in Spain. He briefly led the Alfred Dunhill Links last week before fading and finishing 24th. 

Adrian Meronk 80/1

Everyone likes and outside bet. Meronk is an outsider here but he does look a bit overpriced. He had a forgettable tournament at the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth and missed the cut last week. But he's one of the best drivers in the field and could easily rack up lots of birdies and eagles to throw himself into the fray.
