Golf Betting

     There are two main options in golf betting. When you look for golf betting games you have the option to bet on a golfer to win a golf tournament and you have the option to bet a golfer in a matchup against another golfer.


The first golf betting option has you choosing a golfer that you think will win the tournament for the week. The PGA golf odds will be anywhere from 2-1 up to 100-1 or more depending upon who the golfer is. Tiger Woods might be 2-1 while some unknown might be 100-1. If you happen to risk $100 on Woods and he wins at 2-1 then you win $200 plus your original $100 wager.

Most of the time picking winners in a golf tournament is difficult which is why you see golf odds and golf tips that look attractive. The other golf betting option is the online golf betting matchup. That is where you have one golfer against another on the golf betting odds board. It is a matchup set up by the sportsbook. You might have Tiger Woods against Phil Mickelson in a PGA golf matchup. Woods might be -280 and Mickelson +240. This is a straight golf betting money line bet similar to those you would see in baseball betting.

On these golf betting games there are usually quite a few to choose from each week on the sportsbook board. In golf game matchups you only have to worry about the golfer you bet on beating the other golfer when you are looking at golf betting picks. There are pro golf tips to consider as you look to choose the right golfer either to win the professional golf tournament or in a golf betting matchup.

You can look at past history and see how well a player has done on a certain course in golf games. This is part of golf handicapping and will help you have a better idea of which golfers to look at for golf betting tips. You also don't want to be betting a golfer that hasn't been playing well in recent golf betting games.

Online golf betting continues to increase in popularity. The best time to bet golf and find good tips for golf betting games is during the major tournaments. The Masters odds, U.S. Open odds, PGA Championship odds and British Open odds are the most popular golf betting odds and they get some definite golf betting interest.

Golf seems to be a sport that has more upsets in terms of golf tournament winners. Other than Tiger Woods, who has been experiencing a dropoff in performance and success for years, there does not seem to be an easy way to pick a golf bet winner against the PGA betting odds. If you don't want to roll the dice on a player to win the tournament outright, then matchups could be your choice. These head-to-head matchups are created by sportsbooks and usually involve a competitive golf betting line matchup.

That doesn't mean you can't find an edge though if you do the proper golf handicapping research and look into past history and results of previous golf betting games, and look at the golf betting odds and consider PGA golf rules.

If the match already started and it is scheduled to be completed on another date, all bets have action regardless of how long it takes.

Not out of the Woods yet; Can Tiger Mount a Comeback?

Tiger Woods-hosted Hero World Challenge in DecemberIf you were an offshore bookmaker, would you make him an odds-on favorite, or would you best prop would be that he doesn’t throw his back out during a tournament? Most sportsbooks seem to be leaning toward the latter. LL Cool J said “don’t call it a comeback;” Tiger has not only called it a comeback, but has called it that twice. He was slated to return to competition in October’s Safeway Open, but he pulled out three days after committing to play. Tiger Woods is now scheduled to appear at the Tiger Woods-hosted Hero World Challenge in December, which is a benefit for the Tiger Woods Foundation.

Radiocaddyshack: I, Robot am the Legend of Bagger Vance

Golf bettingWhen you bet on golf at a sportsbook, you put your money on human beings, but there might come a day when golf robots like LDRIC (Launch Directional Robot Intelligence Circuitry) will have taken over the world’s courses in lieu of your Tiger Woods and your Jason Days. Of course, by then Skynet will most likely be online and humanity will have been replaced by machines, so there will probably not be a lot of golf betting going on. So what or who is LDRIC? A seven-foot tall, 600-pound, moveable robot which top club speed is designed to max out at 130 mph – but could go as high as 152 mph.

2016 Safeway Open on notice: Here there be Tiger Woods

2016 Safeway Open  OddsThe golf betting odds of whoever participates in the upcoming Safeway Open have just received a blow. Fourteen-time major champion Tiger Woods hopes to play in the tournament that will open the 2016-17 PGA Tour season, and which will take place at the Silverado Resort and Spa in Napa, California on October 13th-16th. Woods seems poised to make up for lost time. He hasn’t played a competitive round on the PGA Tour since August 2015 when he finished in a tie for 10th place in the Wyndham Championship, but now he has the Turkish Airlines Open, the Tiger Woods Foundation-run Hero World Challenge, and the Tiger Woods Invitational all lined up for the fall.
