It’s time for the US Open again as the famed golf tournament will tee off for the 113th time on June 13. This year’s event will take place at the small Merion Golf Club in Philadelphia with all of the world’s top players on hand. Once again, American Tiger Woods is listed as the favourite even though he hasn’t won a major tournament since back in 2008.
In fact, with bookmaker William Hill, Woods was listed with odds of 6/1 followed by Phil Mickelson, Adam Scott, Graeme McDowell, and Rory McIlroy. However, the weather could go a long way in deciding this year’s winner as severe storms are forecast for the area and the course could become soaked.
Tiger Woods 9/2

Basically for all purposes, the two are more similar than contrary to popular opinions. Both are derivative products which can be used to trade on live-market price movements without technically owning the principal product. The goal is basically to make accurate predictions in the market as which direction it will most likely move.
Both derivative products can purchase and short into the market and make simple profits or they can be used to hedge against losses in a much broader portfolio.

Its a tricky list of matches today. Its taken an age to go through the betting tips so I will post some thoughts for trading later this morning.
Interesting matches that stand out are Baghdatis against Gulbis and Rosol v Groth. Baggy is a very capable grass court player and has a strong head to head against Gulbis. I am reading this morning that Gulbis doesnt have a great record on grass. I agree its not amazing but you could say thatabout Gulbis on any surface. He does have some notable wins on the surface including Berdych. I think it will be interesting to see how the new Gulbis does on the grass this year.
