How to Read the Lines

Golf betting lines can be read in American odds, decimal odds, or fractional odds – whichever you choose. Most sportsbooks offer a button where you can change the odds into your preferred format.

American golf lines are read as negative (-) or positive (+). A negative golf line indicates a favorite, but isn’t usually seen until the third or fourth day of a tournament when one or two players take a significant lead. Before a golf tournament starts, every player will be given a positive line. Negative and positive golf lines are based around the $100 figure, but payouts are calculated differently.

A negative golf line will be listed something like this:

  • Tiger Woods: -140

This means that Tiger Woods is the favorite, and that it takes a bet of $140 to win $100 more, for a total return of $240.

A positive line will look something like this:

  • Phil Mickelson: +210

In this case, a bet of $100 would pay out a $210 profit, for a total return of $310. A positive golf line can be a favorite or an underdog, depending on how the other players lines are set. If Phil Mickelson at +210 are the lowest odds of any of the players, then he is still considered the favorite. This happens in the earlier rounds of a golf tournament when no players have taken a big lead.

So, to wrap this up, a negative money line indicates the amount of money needed to wager to win $100 in profit, and a positive money line indicates the amount of profit that can be won from a $100 wager.

Types of Golf Betting Lines

Wagering on golf is interesting because not only can you bet on winners of future golf events, but also after each day of a tournament. Based on how players finish each day changes the odds, giving you multiple opportunities to pick the winner. While the odds for players at the top of the leader-board go down as a tournament progresses, you can get a feel for how players are doing throughout the weekend. If a player is rising throughout the weekend, but is still 2 or 3 shots off the lead going into Sunday, you’ll get decent odds on him while he’s hot. If the top player is not a great closer, this could be a smart time to bet.

Futures Lines

Different types of futures bets can be made for PGA, LPGA, and EPGA golf. You can bet on how many majors Tiger Woods will win, or if any of the other top players will win a major as well. Most sportsbooks offer these types of futures bets on Padraig Harrington, Rory Mcilroy, Steve Stricker, Lee Westwood, Paul Casey, Geoff Ogilvy, Phil Mickelson, Anthony Kim, Jim Furyk, Jeff Overton and more.

Futures bets can also be made on the Ryder Cup, the Open Championship, the Masters, the US Open Championship, the PGA Championship and many other tournaments throughout the season.
