The Italian Open is up this week, and we have a great number of top players ready to compete for glory in the European Tour. Paul Casey is currently the bookmakers favourite in the ante-post market. It will not be an easy task for the Englishman who will have to compete against the likes of Justin Rose, Francesco Molinari and Shane Lowry. All those Major winners will look to secure a win in what is expected to be a four day of top golf in Italy.

Italian Open Betting Tip
As mentioned, it is Paul Casey that is the top favourite at the moment in the Italian Open betting market. The Englishman can be backed at 9/1 with bet365, and we are not too impressed by the value of this price. Even though Paul Casey has been one of the most consistent golfers during 2019, he has been struggling in recent times after winning the Valspar Championship back in March.
Francesco Molinari has won twice this event and will be looking forward to a return to Italy. He can look value at 16/1 chance with 888Sport and surely he is the one to beat here. Molinari has won the Italian Open in 2006 and 2016 and finished second to Thorbjorn Olesen in the last edition. At 16/1 is definitely our selection.
Justin Rose is at 12/1 with Betfred. The Ryder Cup star surely has the talent to shine here, but he hasn’t been impressive lately with the tied-34th in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. Danny Willett and Shane Lowry are available respectively at 25/1 and 20/1 with BetVictor. We don’t see them doing anything particularly impressive here considering latest form.
If you are looking for an each-way bet you should check Andrea Pavan who is at 33/1 with 888Sport. Pavan has what it takes to make at least the frame having tied-12th last week in the Spanish Open. He also was in the top 10 in the Alfred Dunhill Links, and he is clearly coming to his home event in shining form.
