Golf Betting Odds
Golf is one of the most popular sports when it comes to betting, with tournaments taking place on a weekly basis and many customers enjoying the chance to back their favourite players whether it be the PGA Tour or European Tour.
There are lots of different types of golf bets that you can place. While betting customers might back a football team to win a particular match, it’s a bit different with golf where people prefer to bet each-way and make a profit if their selected player finishes in the frame.
Many bookmakers offer enhanced odds or increased places for each-way bets and that gives you more chance of getting in the money. You can find these more for the big tournaments such as the golf majors.
Ryder Cup betting
The Ryder Cup is singularly the biggest golf tournament when it comes to overall audience and total betting turnover. This competition is a three-day event that pits Europe against the USA every two years and it’s always a fierce battle as foursomes, fourballs and singles events take place.
Many punters like to back the Ryder Cup winner, Top European, Top American and Top Combined Points Scorer. You can also bet on the Correct Score after the three days of play with lots of big prices about different scorelines.
Betting In-Play can also be exciting when it comes to the Ryder Cup, with the odds changing on a frequent basis as the balance of power swings in one direction and then another.
US Masters betting
The Masters is the first golfing major of the year and always takes place in Augusta, with the Green Jacket being awarded to the winner of this tournament. It’s a fantastic betting event and punters tend to look for players with a strong short game to cope with those lightning fast greens.
Open Championship betting
The Open Championship takes place in the UK and it also takes place on a links course which can mean tricky weather conditions on the coastline. It’s the only major to be played in the United Kingdom and the winner is awarded the Claret Jug, with the winner often coming at a big price.
US Open betting
The US Open is another prestigious major tournament which has been dominated by American golfers in previous years and it usually appeals to players who are able to hit the ball long and straight. The fairways are usually narrow and the competition can be won with a low score.
