Golf Odds & Betting – The Odds Manager Guide

With the world’s best competing almost every week on both sides of the Atlantic, there’s plenty of opportunities to bet on golf.

And at Odds Manager we’ll always bring you the best golf betting odds, so you can make some serious cash, often for very little outlay.

Major Golf events in 2020

Golf fans are in for an unexpected November treat as the Masters moves from its usual April slot.

And in December it’s the culmination of the European Tour season as the world’s best can top up their tans in Dubai at the DP World Tour Championship.

Golf Odds – what to bet on

With well over 100 entrants in most golf tournaments, it might seem like picking an outright winner is like trying to find your dropped phone on the floor of an Uber after a night out!

But fear not because there’s loads of different ways to bet on golf, and we know them all!

Outright Winner Odds

The beauty of betting on golf is that the favourite is rarely lower than 8/1, so there’s always some top-notch talent available at double-figure odds.

So you can increase your chances of making a profit by backing a few golfers at small stakes, knowing that just one winner will have you laughing all the way to the bank.

Top 5/10/20 Odds

Each-way betting in golf can be a bit confusing. But backing your favourite golfer to finish in the top five, ten, or even 20 is far easier.

And as well as delving into the top of the market, we’ll help you identify those long shots who look likely to shine, and more importantly, make you some money!

Match Betting Odds

Simple one this, back one golfer to outscore another over the course of the tournament.

Then you’re only worrying about two golfers instead of 100!

And all of the bookies will offer a “draw no bet” option, so you’ll get your money back if they end up level at the end of the week.

Round 1 Leader Odds

If you just can’t wait four days to make some money, why not have a cheeky punt on the first-round leader?

We generally like to pick a few 50/1 shots and hope one of them has the round of their life, but even if they don’t, it hasn’t cost us much and its given us a bit of first-day interest.

In-Tournament Odds

If all of your guys are playing like they’ve overdone it at the 19th Hole and not one is in contention on the final day, then all is not lost!

Before the final round there’s one last chance to pick the winner, but this time you can take a punt on someone in contention who you know has a great chance of topping the leaderboard.

Who should I be looking out for in the future?

The kids are alright in golf, with a host of youngsters looking set to dominate the game for years to come. Collin Morikawa’s stunning victory in the USPGA Championship is a sure sign that he is here to stay.
