Betting On The Winning Team
One exciting aspect of LIV Golf tournaments that legal sports betting sites have begun offering odds on has been the team aspect of each tournament.
With two events down, it may be surprising to still see the 4 Aces GC listed with +185 odds that make them the clear favorite.
|Team:||Average 54 Hole Score:||Team Odds:|
|4 Aces GC||-0.375||+185|
|Hy Flyers GC||7.25||+1600|
|Iron Heads GC||7.625||+1600|
Through two events, Stinger GC has dominated, with the average round of their golfers nearly 2.5 strokes better than second place. Stinger GC has won both events as a result.
Live Betting Strategy At LIV Bedminster
The LIV shotgun start setup creates more immediate action from the start, but it also opens the door for LIV golf betting fans to bet based on unique starting positions.
What that means is bettors may have an opportunity to predict which golfers whose odds may lengthen at the beginning of the event simply based on the Bedminster Old Course’s layout.
Getting those golfers after they begin on difficult holes may be a way to secure extra large payouts.
Specifically, golfers that start on in the hole nine to 13 range are likely to struggle early. Over those holes, it appears the golf course will play much more difficult.
|Hole Range:||Yards:||Yards Per Hole:||Par Average:||Yards Per Shot:|
Expecting golfers to falter on 9-13 will likely be wise because of how long the par fours. That means waiting out that stretch may lead to longer odds on the other side, with the opposite being true for golfers as well.
When they begin on the easier holes, their scores will likely look better than expected and will have worse payouts than they truly deserve.
