Golf Betting Tips: European Tour's 2021 Betfred British Masters

After successfully tipping Rory McIlroy to win the Wells Fargo Championship on the PGA Tour last week at 20/1, we're back with our next round of betting tips and this time it's for the European Tour's Betfred British Masters.

It's the first European Tour event that we have been excited about in a long time, given the scheduling struggles surrounding Covid and the lack of the tour's top stars taking part in events, but the action at the Belfry this week will certainly be entertaining.

Starting on Wednesday, this year's British Masters is hosted by former Masters champion Danny Willett on the iconic Brabazon course at the Belfry, known for hosting four Ryder Cups in the past.

Recent European Tour events have proved to be a little easy for the field lately, where driving well and chipping onto the green has resulted in plenty of birdies, but the Belfry will prove a challenging test this week, especially with the poor weather conditions predicted.

EDDIE PEPPERELL - 40/1 EW

One of our three selections this week is an each way bet on Eddie Pepperell at 40/1.

Having previously won the British Masters when it was played at Walton Heath, Pepperell overcame tough conditions to get the job done, something that will be required for this week's champion.

The Englishman's form in the tournament in general is extremely solid and had he played in more European Tour over the past few months his price would be a lot shorter, so he's definitely worth an each way bet.

MATTHIAS SCHWAB - 25/1

With three top 10's in his last four starts on the European Tour, Matthias Schwab goes into the British Masters in decent form and the Belfry will suit his game very well.

Solid iron play will be required this week and Schwab is one of the best ball strikers in that field, so we like the chances of the Austrian landing his first European Tour victory.

BENJAMIN HEBERT - 150/1 EW

Our final selection is a risky one, but with odds of 150/1, we think Benjamin Hebert is worth a small each way punt this week.

The Frenchman has missed the cut on his last two European Tour events, but when the ISPS HANDA UK Championship was played here in 2020, Hebert finished in a tie for third alongside Martin Kaymer, so he could find some form at a course where he has performed well in the past.
