Best Golf Betting Strategies
The key to increasing your chances of being a profitable golf punter is to develop a strategy that will help you in finding consistent betting value. Below we have provided some basic tips that should help you achieve this aim when betting on a golf tournament.
Study General Form
The most important thing to look at is what is the form of the golf player I am about to back? You should look at recent finishes in a tournament and also how he had done in this or similar courses previously. Seriously consider ignoring anyone who hasn’t managed to be in the top 20 in the five events leading up to the tournament you want to bet on.
Study Course Form
The second thing to look at is how he has done previously on the same course. Some players particularly like or dislike certain courses, and you need to be aware of this as it will impact the outcome, and it is very important in your betting decision.
Study The Stats
General and course form are the most important things to consider but you should also take a look at other stats when betting on golf. You should look at both season-long and recent stats. For instance, some courses demand accuracy off the tee. You should study recent driving accuracy statistics to see what is the golfer that has the best chance in that specific tournament. Another stat you surely want to check is related to the putting. If your player cannot putt, he will not win the tournament.
Avoid Inexperienced Players
Surely odds are more attractive for those players that have great potentials but are yet to win a trophy. In reality, though, statistically, the winners, especially on big tournaments and majors, are those players that have accumulated experience. Those are capable of managing the pressure that comes when leading and surely have lots more chances of winnings compared with newcomers.
