The world's best are in Arizona this week for the Accenture World Match Play, so we asked betting.betfair's golf contributors to submit an each way selection from Betfair's new Fixed Odds Sportsbook market...

"A big hitter and fantastic putter, Day looks to have the goods for a strong run at Dove Mountain and at 60-1 we’re getting a nice price for a major talent."

Joe Dyer says: Back Jason Day @ [61.0]

After a hugely exciting 2011 which included second placed finishes at the Masters and US Open, last year was a write-off for an injury-hit Jason Day. Thankfully, this young Aussie looks to be fit and back in form with two top-10s in three tournaments this year. A big hitter and fantastic putter, Day looks to have the goods for a strong run at Dove Mountain and at 60-1 we're getting a nice price for a major talent.

Mike Normans says: Back Lee Westwood @ [26.0]

The demands of both Dove Mountain and a gruelling six round tournament (should you get to the final) requires an accurate driver of the ball and someone who can hit greens in regulation. Step forward the Worksop Wonder. Unfortunately that's where the plus points end for Westwood because as soon as he has a putter in his hand the confidence drains. But there have been a few signs that his short game is slightly improved this year, and he did reach the semi-final here last year. He might just do the same again this week without having to rely on the short stick too much.

Steve Rawlings says: Back Peter Hanson @ [81.0]

I will be surprised if Peter Hanson doesn't knock-out Thomas Bjorn on day one and I'll be disappointed if he doesn't get past either Webb Simpson or David Lynn in round two. After that, he could bump into a certain Mr. Woods but given Tiger still hasn't progressed that far on this course, that's by no means a given. The talented Swede was at the peak of his powers at the tail-end of 2012, not only starring for Europe in the Ryder Cup but also notching another two European Tour wins. He reached the last-eight 12 months ago and it would be no surprise to see him go one step further at least and reward each way backers handsomely.

Dan Geraghty says: Back Louis Oosthuizen @ [26.0]

Like many of you, no doubt, this morning I printed off 'the bracket' and sat here going through various scenarios. The results have left me quite confused but, alas my mad scribblings inform me that Louis Oosthuizen is the value. Like Paul Krishnamurty, I like the look of the Ben Hogan division and fancy the world number five to leave his previous matchplay form behind and navigate his way through to the semi-finals.

Paul Krishnamurty says: Back Keegan Bradley @ [41.0]

Each-way betting is particularly attractive this week due to the lop-sided nature of the draw. For example, the Ben Hogan Bracket appears to contain fewer leading candidates than others, meaning it may not require anything special to reach the semis and land the place part of an each-way bet.
Keegan Bradley looks the one to be on here and not just because of the impressive matchplay skills demonstrated at the Ryder Cup. Bradley is certain to start favourite for at least his first two matches, and quite plausibly all four needed to land a top-four finish.
