Above you can see the most popular free golf predictions on OLBG today for the upcoming golf tournaments. Under the "Tournaments" tab you will see predictions for a variety of golf betting tournament markets including:
- Tournament Outright Winner
This prediction is for the golfer to win the tournament, it can be a "Win" bet so the golfer has to win the event or it may be an "Each Way" selection which means the golfer can usually finish in the top 5 to 8 places and a partial pay out will result. The place terms can vary from tournament to tournament for "Each Way" betting, which may be a 1/4 or 1/5 of the odds for the "place" element of the odds and bookmakers may offer up to 8 or even 10 places for the big tournaments like the Masters and the US Open. The place terms are available and displayed by the sportsbooks along with the respective odds markets before placing your wager so be sure to check you are happy before finalising any bets.
Similar to the Outright Tournament Winner betting market only this time tips are for the golfer leading after Round 1 has completed, selections again can be placed to "Win" or "Each Way". The Each Way bet usually covers the first 4 places with bookies but the number of places on offer may vary so best to check before placing any wagers.
- 72 Hole Match Bets (for example, Woods v McIlroy)
This bet you are simply betting on which player finishes ahead of the other, it does not matter if either does not win the tournament or both miss the cut it is simply who finished in the better ranking for the tournament.
This works similar to the 72 Hole Match Bets, however rather than just a two player head to head match bet the group betting will usually feature four or five golfers in the group but we are still betting on which golfer will complete the tournament with the best ranking of the group.
As the title suggests this betting market solely focuses on the players from Great Britain & Ireland, similarly you may also find Top European and Top American betting markets for players from those locations. You are still simply betting on which golfer you feel will finish the tournament with the best ranking, again they do not have to win the whole tournament they just need to finish in the best position out of the players quoted in this betting market. Each Way betting is usually available in the Top American, Top GB&IRE betting markets especially for the main events but it may not always be the case for the regular weekly tournaments depending on the number of players from designated locations taking part.
The selection odds are also shown along with the number of tips received against the total number of tips on available outcomes in the betting market which gives the confidence percentage figure. If you click on the "tips and comments" tab on the navigation menu the predictions will sort by volume in ascending or descending order.
The Value Rating column indicates a 1 to 5 star value wager, 5 stars being the best. The Value Rating is calculated by comparing the % of picks against the total number, the odds of a selection and theoretical chances of winning. If the tips % is higher than the theoretical chances of winning according to the odds, that is a sign that the selection could offer a value bet. Click the Value Rating column tab to sort selections by the number of stars.
