Golf Betting – The Barclay’s – Fed Ex Cup

November 30, 2010 Golf

Golf betting really gets exciting as the FedExCup begins on August 27th with the Barclays.

The FedExCup is an exciting way to end the golf betting season and it begins with the Barclays for those that bet on golf.

Golf betting tells us that the top 125 players qualify for the Barclays with the field being narrowed to 100 for the Deutsche Bank Championship, 70 at the BMW Championship and 30 for THE TOUR Championship.  That is a change from last year when the golf betting fields were 144, 120, 70 and 30.  When it gets to THE TOUR Championship, all of the 30 players will have a chance to win but a win by anyone in the top five guarantees them the FedExCup title.

Last year it was Vijay Singh winning the Barclays in golf betting.  Steve Stricker was the golf betting winner of this event two years ago.  Vijay also won this event in 2006 while Padraig Harrington was the winner in 2005.  You can tell that the big names are a major factor in golf betting in this event.  Those are just two of the big names in golf that could be a major part of this event.

What should be kept in mind with the Barclays is that sometimes the top few players don’t have to play. They already are assured of making it to the Deutsche Bank Championship because they will stay in the Top 100. The golf betting field is still strong though with most of the top names in golf on the sportsbook board.

The options in golf betting for the Barclays have gamblers looking to bet on golf by picking the overall winner and by wagering on the matchups.  The matchups can really get intriguing in an event like this since many of the best golfers in the world are on the golf betting odds board.  A matchup also makes it so you only have to worry about your golfer beating the other golfer to win, instead of having to defeat the entire field to win your bet on golf wager.  Matchups are based on money lines and that means you risk more money on the favorite and get plus money on the sports betting underdog.
