Our CJ Cup PredictionsThe bookmakers are seeing this tournament as somewhat of a four horse race, and given his form in the competition, Justin Thomas at 11/1 looks a pretty worthy punt and he’s certainly our pick of the field.
However, it’s a different course but it’s still a time of the year when he plays his best golf.
Dustin Johnson has been among the world’s best since the restart so isn’t worth ruling out, and at 10/1 the second favourite is still providing some pretty tempting odds.
McIlroy will be looking to improve his form ahead of the Masters and this will be a good testing ground. He could be worth an each way bet at 11/1, and if he does do well will be a good punt for the Green Jacket too.
As for outsiders, Sungjae Im and Tyler Duncan could the surprise packages of the tournament.
