How To Bet on Golf - Everything You Need To Know

How to bet on Golf - Golf tournaments can have so many participants that it makes betting on them confusing. The key is to start simple. The best golf betting strategy is start with who you believe can win the tournament. Ignore all the guys down at the bottom of the odds who have little to no chance at winning.

Golf Betting Rules - The major golf betting rule is that each and every player will have certain odds to win the tournament. For instance a player may have 7/1 odds for a particular tournament. The lower the odds the better a players chance is. 7/1 odds and 15/1 odds would mean that the 7/1 odd player is favored over the 15/1 odds player. For the player with 7/1 odds you would win 7 times what number you bet, or $700 dollars if you bet $100. The same goes for the 15/1 odds, if you bet $100 then you would win $1,500 if that participant won the tournament.

Golf Betting Strategy -The best golf betting strategy when analyzing these odds is to see if it is worth betting on a participant. If a player has 2/1 odds than that means you would win 20 dollars if you bet 10 dollars. Sometimes a player may be the obvious favorite to win, but if the odds are low enough it may not be worth betting on them. If they have something like 3/2 or 5/3 odds etc., then I would stay away from them. If you think two players have equal chance to win then bet on the 15/1 odds over the 7/1 odds so you have a greater profit if you do win.

Golf Betting Tips - One golf betting tip would be to look at a players past history on a certain course. Some guys like certain golf courses over other ones for various reasons. Some of those reasons could be less water hazards, better greens for putting, longer fairways, etc. Certain guys are better at putting than others and some golf courses provide better greens. One example of this would be Bubba Watson at the Masters tournament. He won this tournament three out of four years, so he would have been a good bet.

Past Finishes - You can examine a players past wins and see where they took place. You can also look at how many ten top finishes they have had in their career to see if they have a good chance at even being in contention or not. If you find a player who has never won but has many top ten finishes and they have really good odds than you may take a chance on them.

Top Ranked Guys – Sticking with the higher ranked golfers in the world is the safest bet to make. They are ranked that high for a reason. There are many professional golfers but many of them finish their career with zero victories.
