How To Read Golf Betting Odds

Golf betting odds are almost always presented in the American odds or moneyline format. You'll see either a plus sign or a minus sign in front of a number. The number following a plus sign (+) is the amount you can win on a $100 bet. The number following a minus sign (-) is the amount you would need to bet to win $100.

These odds demonstrate a player's perceived chances of winning or losing the specific bet. Negative odds indicate that the player is favored to win or meet the line that is set; positive odds indicate that the player has a lower than 50% implied probability of winning the tournament or hitting the prop. 

The American odds format is used to indicate not just moneyline markets, but totals, futures, and prop bets, as well. 

So, if you understand how these moneyline odds work, you're on your way to becoming a golf betting expert.

Popular Types of Golf Bets

Some bets may not be available on every sportsbook, but these are the most common and popular golf bets you can expect to place. 

  • Golf Futures Golf futures are bets that are placed several weeks or months ahead of time. Futures are a very common wager among golf fans, because you are likely to be able to get better odds by betting ahead of time.

    For example, you place a wager on Rory McIlroy's odds to win the Masters' at +700 odds in January. By March, McIlroy is playing great, and odds have shortened to +300. You will still hold +700 odds from placing the bet in January.
  • Live Golf Betting Live betting golf is great because it allows you to stay in the action. Every golf fan knows how unpredictable a round of golf can be. If your future bet is out of contention, you can place live bets on outcomes such Scottie Scheffler's next fairway or Will Zalatoris' next putt.
  • Golf Props Golf prop bets involve wagering on specific events during a round or tournament. Examples include betting on the total score for a player or whether there will be a hole-in-one.
