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.

I Don't Wanna Rock DJ But for Your Golf Betting Odds

Dustin Johnson enters the Open Championship Dustin Johnson enters the Open Championship (aka the British Open, aka the Open) as the golf betting favorite (+1385) to win the third major tournament of the season on July 20th-23rd at Royal Birkdale Golf Club in Southport, England – which makes it the only major played outside of the United States. This may or may not come as a surprise for people who bet on golf, as the World No. 1 has been rather unlucky with majors this year; he skipped the Masters Tournament with a back injury following a mysterious staircase mishap, and missed the cut in the US Open – his second straight missed cut in a very long time. But you know what they say about the DJ: There's not a problem that he can't fix, 'cause he can do it in the mix. 'Cause he can do it in the mix, in the mix, in the mix. And last night he did save my life from a broken heart with a song.
