Experienced Lefty looks the right match-bet option

Schauffele suffering from CJ Cup meltdown

Phil Mickelson impressed in the Safeway Open last time out
1 of 1

Phil Mickelson is a dual champion at Sheshan International, chasing an WGC-HSBC Champions hat-trick this week, and the legendary left-hander can be fancied to outscore Tony Finau.

Mickelson played four matches without defeat in the Presidents Cup, then finished third in the Safeway Open last time out. Finau has been in decent nick, too, but is making his HSBC debut. The much more experienced Sheshan campaigner should know too much.

Another debutant, Xander Schauffele, can be opposed with Daniel Berger. Schauffele's bubble burst to some extent with three terrible closing rounds in the CJ Cup last week (82, 78, 76 to finish 72nd of 78 runners). Berger, 11th and second in the last two HSBCs, seems a much more likely title contender.
