Reed Sits Atop Latest Race to Dubai Odds

Reed Sits Atop Latest Race to Dubai Odds

Patrick Reed ended a 20-month winless streak in style earlier this month, claiming his first career major tournament victory at the Masters as a long +5500 bet and fueling his climb to the top of the 2018 Race to Dubai betting odds, where he is currently perched as a strong +250 favorite.

Reed endured some early-season struggles that saw him miss the cut on four occasions, while cracking the Top 10 just once in his first nine outings. Things did not get much better for the 27-year-old at his first European Tour event of the year, finishing a distant 37th at the WGC – Mexico Championship while sporting +8000 odds.

However, the two-time NCAA champion subsequently rounded into form, finishing Top 10 in three straight outings ahead of his triumph at Augusta, including a ninth-place performance at the WGC – Dell Technologies Match Play. Reed currently maintains a comfortable lead atop the European Tour Race to Dubai rankings, over 1.1 million points ahead of second-place Shubhankar Sharma.

The 21-year-old native of Jammu, India has impressed during his first full season as a pro, becoming the youngest player to earn a win on the European Tour with his victory at last December’s Joburg Open in South Africa. However, Sharma sits well back of the favorites at +5000 on the Race to Dubai odds.


McIlroy Follows on Race to Dubai 2018 Odds

A number of more familiar names fill out the top of the odds, led by Rory McIlroy, who is pegged as a short +350 bet to claim a fourth career Race to Dubai title, followed by Tommy Fleetwood at +500, and Jon Rahm at +550.

McIlroy sits sixth on the Race to Dubai rankings after finishing in a four-way tie for fifth place at the Masters as a +1000 co-favorite. That adds to his steady play on this season’s European Tour, which has featured second-place finishes at the British Masters and Omega Dubai Desert Classic, and a third-place performance at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship.

However, McIlroy produced mixed results on the PGA Tour prior to the Masters, with his victory at the Arnold Palmer Invitational as a +1400 bet marking his lone finish inside of the Top 20.

Winner of the Race to Dubai in 2017, Fleetwood closely trails Sharma in third place on this year’s rankings following a strong start that included a win at Abu Dhabi that marks his fourth career victory on the European Tour. But the native of Merseyside, England has failed to finish better than 14th in his past three outings, and closed out the Masters in 17th place while listed as a +4500 wager.

Rahm followed up a personal best fourth-place finish at Augusta with his second European Tour win of the season a week later at the Open de Espana, lifting him past McIlroy into fifth place on the European Tour rankings.

Further down the Race to Dubai 2018 odds, Englishman Tyrrell Hatton leads the middle of the pack at +1000, followed by Sweden’s Alexander Noren at +1400. 2007 European Tour champion Justin Rose sits well back at +2800, followed by two-time champion Henrik Stenson at +3500, and Thailand’s Kiradech Aphibarnrat at +4000.
