Tips for betting British Open props

Whether you’re betting on golfer odds or tournament markets, here are some tips for betting on British Open props.

Golf Ball Or Club Current form

Like any outdoor sporting event, the weather will greatly influence the outcome – especially when it comes to the Open Championship. Rain and cold can lengthen a course and make it play soft, while wind can cause havoc off the tee box. Study the forecast heading into Round 1 and throughout the tournament to get an idea of how Royal St. George's will play. 

Create NarrativeSet a narrative

If you’re betting British Open props along with other markets, like the outright winner or head-to-head matchups, you want to make sure you’re not betting against yourself and placing contradicting wagers.
