Eddie Pepperell, the Punter's pick for the Scottish Championship

Here's how to get our golf experts' best bets for this week's PGA and European Tour events, the CJ Cup and Scottish Championship...

Steve Rawlings: "With an abundance of links form, in-form Englishman, Eddie Pepperell, ticks a lot of boxes and I though 17/118.0 was fair given the strength of the field."

Back Eddie Pepperell @ 17/118.0

CJ Cup - The Punter's preview

Steve Rawlings fills us in on all things CJ Cup and after he's original fancy Dustin Johnson withdrew, he's backing another in-form player at this week's PGA Tour event.

He says: "Having finished second at the US Open and second at the Shriners on Sunday, it's impossible to pick holes in Matthew Wolff's current form and I was more than happy to play him at 25/126.0."

Back Matthew Wolff at 25/126.0

CJ Cup - First round leader

Who will make a fast start in the CJ Cup? Dave Tindall heads over to Las Vegas and finds three each-way first round leader picks for Shadow Creek.

He says: "Top 20 in this event last year, he's a two-time winner in Las Vegas so hopefully his added local knowledge will kick in early."

Back Kevin Na each-way @ 85/1

The CJ Cup - Form guide

Andy Swales supplies the stats for The CJ Cup, as Shadow Creek in Las Vegas makes its debut on the PGA Tour.

He says: "Justin Thomas is developing a reputation for playing well in high-quality tournaments that have limited-size fields and no 36-hole cut. Nine of his 13 PGA Tour victories have come in such events - and he has also lost a play-off in one other."

Find Me a 100 Winner - Outsiders to back at the CJ Cup & Scottish Championship

Steve picks three outsiders to side with - two at the CJ Cup and one for the Scottish Championship.

He says: "Scott Hend was on the fringes of contention at halfway at Wentworth last week before a 73 on Saturday blew him off course. He bounced back with a 68 on Sunday to finish inside the top-10 and that's really strong form in the context of this event."

Back Scott Hend 2u @ 99/1100.0

Back Matthew Jordan each-way @ 28/1

Scottish Championship - Form stats

Andy Swales provides the form stats for the European Tour event and provides a guide to the course at Fairmont St Andrews.

He says: "This week's field is considerably weaker than the ones which teed-up at The Renaissance Club and Wentworth, and if the breeze picks up Eddie Pepperell must stand a good chance of winning the tournament."
