Coventry Editorial 14th Feb, 2024   0

The Mexico Open is fast approaching, with plenty of people looking to follow this tournament in the UK and beyond. You may be watching on, wishing you were enjoying the hot Mexican sun, or you might just be looking to enjoy the golf itself.

In this guide, we’ll give a bit of information about the Mexican Open in 2024, as well as some of the ways to gamble on the sport. We’ll explore some of the best golf betting sites too, most of which will be providing a lot of odds on the Mexico Open and ways to back players individually, as well as some of the more interesting markets on the sport and special promotions.

Members of Warwickshire Golf Club and many other golf fans in the area are likely to be watching with interest as the tournament gets underway. Wherever you are based, let’s have a little look at the Mexico Open and preview the golfers who may have a chance.

The Mexico Open

The Mexico Open was first held at the Club de Golf Chapultepec back in 1944 and has only recently been added to the PGA Tour Schedule. Since then, there have been some golfers who are particularly successful, with the likes of Jon Rahm performing particularly well.




The Mexico Open will take place in Vidanta, which is in the Vallarta part of the country. It takes part between the 22nd and 25th Feb 2024. This will also be an $8.1 million competition, with the potential to win a huge amount of cash as well as 500 FedExCup points.

The Mexico Open has been a big boost to the area, it is expected to generate billions of pesos for the local economy. The Mexican Open has been a great success since being embraced by the tour. A spokesperson said, “We have everything ready for the third edition of the Mexico Open at Vidanta. After two successful years, we have brought the best golf to our country and showcased Mexico’s image to over 220 countries and territories through international television coverage.”


The event will feature 132 professional players, with the existing champion American Tony Finau looking to add to the six victories on the PGA TOUR.

Who Has a Chance at the Mexico Open?

Predicting the Mexico Open is one of the more difficult tournaments. A lot of the golfers who have done well at the tournament historically are South American or North American, but there are also a lot of pros taking part in the tournament from areas including Europe and Asia. Though, historically, not a lot of winners have come from this area, there is the potential for a new winner in 2024.

The favourites for the tournament include the names listed below. Of course, Jon Rahm is one of the very top options, having been in the top two in the last two tournaments. Tony Finau, defending champ, is also right up towards the top of the betting.

Some of the top names include

  • Jon Rahm
  • Tony Finau
  • Wyndham Clark
  • Gary Woodland
  • Nicolai Hojgaard
  • Maverick Mcnealy
  • Patrick Rodgers
  • Alex Noren
  • Taylor Pendrith
  • Byeong Hun An

No Asian has ever won the tournament before, but some are tipping Byeong Hun An to have a good tournament. Historically (when the tournament was not quite as popular), there were a lot of Mexican winners, but a Mexican coming out on top of the Mexico Open this year would be a big surprise.

Golf Betting Sites

Let’s dive into some of the top golf betting sites out there, including those with a wide range of markets and coverage of lots of events, such as the Mexico Open.

LeoVegas

LeoVegas is best known for offering a wide variety of different casino games, but they also offer sportsbook gambling and cover a huge number of different markets. There is coverage for a wide variety of golf events, including the PGA tour, meaning that they include markets on the Mexico Open, whether you want to bet on a real outsider or one of the favourites.

On top of the win markets, there are also plenty of other markets, such as head-to-heads, players to place, and many other options¾they may also include specials.

The company is very reputable, with a UKGC licence, and they have also won many different awards over the years. For new players, there is a welcome bonus with up to 30 EUR worth of free bets. Players can also take advantage of many different deposit methods and up-to-date odds. The customer support isn’t always the quickest to respond, which is one downside.

888sport

888sport is another option that has a wide variety of different markets on many different sports. 888sport has a focus on golf, with lots of different ways to back golfers, including things like round leader and final result being popular. The site also offers Virtual Golf as a way for some players to get involved.

For those looking for a lot of markets and good free bets, this could be a decent choice. On top of this, you can bet 10 EUR and get up to 30 EUR in free bets. They don’t have live streaming on the site and not everybody loves the interface, but you really can’t fault the offering from 888bet when it comes to golf odds and the Mexico Open.

Players can also take advantage of some promotions offered on the site from time to time.

Summary

With the Mexico Open approaching, a lot of people are looking to work out who they think will come out on top. There are many other markets, too, and some people are focusing on things like round leaders and what score a player will achieve. The top betting companies will allow people to back the players they want and a wide variety of different markets. Will Finau defend his title? Will Rahm be right up there again? Only time will tell…
