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.
Nothing dictates the prop odds like current form. Oddsmakers look at the recent play of golfers, factoring in hot streaks and struggles, and that’s where you should start when it comes to betting British Open props.
The term “horses for courses” is popular amongst golf bettors, recognizing which courses or course styles players routinely have success or struggles with. Dive into past tournaments held at Royal St. George's and see who was atop the leaderboard. Also, take a look at golfers who have had past success at links courses.
Watch the weather
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.
Set 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. Set a narrative for the tournament, pegging which players will do well and which ones won’t, then bet accordingly with a thread connecting those British Open bets.
