Brief introduction to Golf Odds
Betting on golf is extremely popular in the world of sports betting, mainly because it offers a unique and potentially highly lucrative betting experience. In fact, hitting a single bet can have you jumping around in joy, mainly because the offered golf odds can easily reach double or triple digits.
But even though betting on golf can be exciting and profitable, you need to know a thing or two about it before you can place your first bet.
How to read Golf Odds
Understanding golf betting odds is extremely simple, mainly because golf itself is a simple sport. The odds don’t differ from other sports in terms of what they mean, so as long as you have a basic understanding of betting odds, reading golf odds should come as second nature.
How to bet on Golf
As noted, golf is a fairly simple sport to start betting on mainly because there aren’t many golf betting lines or markets for you to explore, as most betting is done on the outright betting markets. You simply have to pick which player will win any given tournament.
Some prefer betting on players each/way to ensure the payout even if your selection doesn’t win, yet, still places inside the top six or top 10 places. You can also bet on round winners and head-to-heads, but most of the golf bets are placed on the outright winner markets.
Is Betting On Golf Legal?
Yes! Betting on golf is completely legal as long as you wager on it on a licenced, regulated, and legal sportsbook and are old enough to bet.
Where Can I Bet On Golf?
You can bet on golf on practically all online sportsbooks. Although golf betting is not as popular as betting on football, there is no shortage of golf betting markets no matter which bookie you visit.
Which Are the Biggest Golf Tournaments?
