The European Tour rolls on this week with a stop at the Hero Indian Open. We simulated this event 10,000 times and came up with a surprising leaderboard.
Our proprietary computer model, built by DFS pro millionaire Mike McClure, was all over the PGA majors last year, and is off to a hot start again this year, especially on the European Tour. Last week at the Tshwane Open, it listed George Coetzee as one of the top two contenders. The result: Coetzee fired an 18-under and cruised to a two-shot victory.
One huge surprise the model is calling for at the Hero Indian Open this year: Julian Suri, who Vegas views as a fringe top-10 competitor, finishes in the top five and is a real threat to win it all. He's a strong value at 33/1 you should jump all over.
Another curveball: Shubhankar Sharma, who is the Vegas co-favorite at 12/1. barely cracks the top 10. He's somebody to steer completely clear of this weekend.
The model is also calling for a huge long shot with odds longer than 40/1 to make a serious run at the title. So who should you back in the Hero Indian Open and what big underdogs shock the European Tour this week?... Join SportsLine here to see who you can bank on to win the Hero Indian Open and see which long shot makes a run at the title, all from the model that was extremely high on George Coetzee heading into the Tshwane Open and nailed three PGA majors headed into the weekend last season.
