2015 Betting on GOLF
Golf Betting Picks
When it comes to betting on golf at Diamond sportsbook there are a lot of great options. You can bet on a golfer to win a tournament, you can bet head-to-head matchups and you can also bet golf futures.
Odds to Win Tournaments
The first main option when you bet on golf is to pick a golfer to win a tournament. This can be exciting as you are trying to pick the winner of a tournament that has more than 100 players in it.
You will have golf odds on someone like Tiger Woods that are low at perhaps 3-1 while most of the other players in the field are listed at 10-1 and higher. You will oftentimes see odds on some very good players at 30-1 or more.
It is really exciting to pick the golf winner at those types of odds and for the most part you will get that type of return every week when you pick the winner.
There is no doubt that it is not always easy to pick the winner of a golf tournament with so many players entered so some gamblers prefer to bet the matchups. This is where you are betting on golfer to finish ahead of another. For example, you might have a matchup like this:
Bubba Watson +160
Tiger Woods -200
Top 3 and Top 5 Finish
If you are not quite as confident of the win for a driver you pick then you might want to take the safer option of betting the driver will finish in the top 3 or top 5. The odds won’t be as long but your chances of winning will be better.
In this example you are risking $200 for every $100 you want to win on Woods while you get $160 dollars for every $100 you risk on Watson. You can risk any amount you want on the wager at the respective equivalents. Diamond sportsbook will put up a variety of matchups each week with golfers of relative skill matched up against one another.
There will also be golf futures on the board for the major golf tournaments like the Masters where you can pick the winner of the tournament months before the tournament actually takes place. You may also see some other options in golf futures such as how many majors will Tiger Wood or Rory McIlroy win, etc.
PGA and European Tour Events
Not only can you bet on the PGA Tour events each week, you can also bet on the European Tour events. In most weeks that gives you two different golf tournaments to consider with your golf betting at Diamond sportsbook.
