Golf Betting Popularity at SBG Global

November 30th, 2010 Golf Betting

Golf betting has grown in leaps and bounds in recent years as sports bettors are constantly looking for new ways and opportunities to increase their gambling bankrolls.

Golf odds continue to be popular with gamblers around the world.  There are opportunities to make money when you are looking at golf betting odds. Let’s take a look at golf odds and the options you should consider.

Golf odds give you two basic options. You have the option of betting on a single golfer to win the tournament or you have the choice of betting a golf matchup.  The matchup in golf odds is where two golfers are pitted against one another for the tournament.  The golfer with the best score wins.  You choose which golfer you prefer.

As you look at golf betting odds you have various factors to consider just as you would with other sports.  Different players do well and excel at different courses depending on their abilities and how they match up with the characteristics of a course.  They may struggle at certain courses because their game isn’t as suited to the layout.  You can find out this information by doing the research as you look at golf odds.

As you look at betting golfers to win a tournament you first need to look at golfers that excel on the course.  You also want to look at the golfer’s recent form.  You sure don’t want to be betting a golfer that hasn’t been playing well lately. This same type of research should also be done when you are betting golf odds matchups.  You want to remember that a money line is used for golf betting odds matchups.  For example, you might have Tiger Woods at -220 over Ernie Els.  If you liked Woods you would be risking $220 for every $100 you wanted to win in golf odds.  If you liked Els you would be getting probably $180 back for every $100 wagered in golf odds.  The take back would depend upon the sportsbook and how much vigorish they wanted to charge on the golf odds matchup.

Golf betting odds will be the most popular during the major tournaments like the Masters and U.S. Open.  You will also see golf odds for all of the other PGA Tour stops each week.  It is those tournaments that may provide you with the best value on the golf odds board.
