This week, the European Tour travels to Germany for the 2021 BMW International Open.
Before I dive into my favorite golf bets for this week’s European Tour event let’s take a look at the golf course the field will play and some additional facts that I feel are important to those that will be placing bets on the 2021 BMW International Open.
The 2021 BMW International Open will be played at the Golf Club Munchen Eichenried in Munich, Germany. This track is a par 72 that measures 7,283 yards. This course will present the field with four par fives and two par fours that are reachable in two shots. Water hazards are in play on ten of the 18 holes. Additionally, this track features wide generous fairways.
The Golf Club Munchen Eichenried course was designed by Kurt Rosknecht in 1989.
The Golf Club Munchen Eichenried previously hosted the BMW International Open in 2011, 2013, 2015, and 2019.
The average cumulative four round winning score of the three previous winners of the BMW International Open (when hosted by the Golf Club Munchen Eichenried) was 16.67 strokes under par (2019 Andrea Pavan -15: 2015 Pablo Larrazabal -17: 2013 Ernie Els -18).
Now let’s shift our focus to my favorite golf bets for the 2021 BMW International Open.
Here is a golfer to consider placing on your card to finish in the top ten.
Matthias Schwab +375
The talented young Austrian has been playing some outstanding golf on the European Tour this year. Schwab has played 11 tournaments on the European Tour since the beginning of January. In those 11 events just mentioned, Schwab has accumulated six top 11 finishes, including an eighth place result at the Made In Himmerland Championship last month.
Schwab is currently ranked sixth in GIR (greens in regulation-71.75%) and 12th in scoring average (69.49) on the European Tour. It should also be noted that Schwab finished third at the 2019 BMW International Open.

Ashley Chesters +425
The 31 year old arrives at this week’s 2021 BMW International Open on the heels of two consecutive top 19 finishes on the European Tour, including an 18th place result at the Porsche European Open two weeks ago. Chesters also finished 20th at the 2017 BMW International Open.
Chesters is currently ranked fourth in driving accuracy (64.71%) on the European Tour.
