Betting on the cut line

Betting on the cut line is a very popular way to wager on golf tournaments and draws a ton of attention for major tournaments like the 2022 British Open. 

Oddsmakers set a projected cut line score heading into the event, and you can bet on whether the final cut line will be Over or Under that projected score. 

For example, the cut line for the 2021 British Open was +1. Oddsmakers posted an Over/Under projected cut line of +4.5, which means if you thought the cut line would be +4 or lower, you would bet the Under, and if you thought it would be +5 or higher, you would bet the Over.

British Open cut rule

The British Open cut rule advances the top-70 players on the leaderboard after Round 2 (plus ties) to the final two rounds, trimming the 156-player starting field by approximately half.
