Golf Betting Tips
Golf betting can often be as difficult as the game itself. One minute a player can be tearing the course up and look unbeatable, then all of sudden one bad shot can cause a confidence crisis that destroys the round. Who can forget some of the most historic meltdowns in history, Greg Norman at the 1996 masters and then the same from Jordan Spieth two decades later. Besides technique (which obviously counts a lot!), golf is mainly played between the ears with psychology and confidence the biggest indicators of success. For Golf Betting we are not only battling the elements, the course set up and the other players – we are up against the mood and psychology of a player on any given day.
That is why FBT are extremely careful when considering Golf Tips. Sure, we could pluck a player out of thin air and find reasons for him to win. Maybe his form is good, maybe his game suits the course or maybe his wife has just given birth (believe us, the Nappy Factor has actually been shown to be a predictor of success!). However, the reality is that picking a tournament winner is notoriously difficult, even though we have the each way option at our disposal. It’s for this reason that FBT generally focus on statistical markets for which we can find an edge. This is one of our first laws of betting: if you can’t find value, or some kind of edge – don’t bother as the bookie will always win. Throughout these pages we will try and navigate this mine field and explain the type of markets we tend to focus on.
Golf Tips Frequency
Golf Predictions and bet suggestions are available for much of the year. This gives us many weeks in the year to be selective from – and at FBT we really make the most of it. Whist there are many golf tours that have emerged we tend to focus on those where the most talent resides. Therefore you will only find Golf Tips for the PGA Tour in North America and The European Tour. For around nine months of the year there will be a weekly event on each tour where golf betting is available. In addition, there are of course special events such as the Ryder Cup and the four golf majors where special attention is deserved. As always, whilst FBT will try and refresh content as regularly as possible, we will only provide Golf Tips when there is a defined advantage and rationale or exceptional odds value. Therefore, please don’t expect Golf Betting Tips to appear every week for every event. Being selective is what makes us different to other Golf tipping sites who will post almost anything to drive site traffic, our goal is to only provide smart golf bets of the highest quantity. We want you to come to our Golf betting pages weekly during the season of course, and provide us with feedback that we value, but our Golf Picks posted on FreeBettingTipster.com will have followed our tipping process that you will find referenced throughout the site. This allows our Golf Tips to be defined by quality rather than quantity.
PGA Tour and European Tour Golf Betting
When a FBT Golf Prediction is offered, we separate them clearly into one of two categories; either Spread Betting or Fixed Odds. For example, for each PGA or European Tour event we provide forecasts for, we will give details of the event, the type of bet ( i.e. a golfer’s finishing position), whether it is a spread or fixed odds price and the actual price at time of posting. Please note, as conditions change or more people bet, prices will often change (FBT can move spread betting prices with a single free golf tip), so please understand that our Golf betting tips are offered on a best endeavors basis as far as prices are concerned. If the golf odds differ from what we have posted, it is our client’s responsibility to determine if the adjusted price still represents value. This is why visiting our latest golf betting page as regularly as possible will yield best real time results. For example some advanced prices can be spotted days ahead of a tour event, so if you want to benefit from the golf tips we post before the odds or spreads move, you must act on them accordingly.
Golf spread betting
You will find in our guides and resources pages, large volumes of data and analysis go into our formulation of golf tips. From a spread betting point of view, we typically focus on a number of statistically based markets, some of which are listed below:
- Player Finishing Positions
- Hole Markets (particularly for the majors)
- Winning Score
- Players Under Pay
- Highest & Lowest Round Scores
You’ll notice from this that our focus is on statistical markets rather player match bets, or indices. This is for good reason – because of the spread (the bit in the middle that belongs to the bookmaker) there is seldom value to be had in these markets.
Great resources are available for news, live scores and historical results. Visit www.pgatour.com for North American golf and http://www.europeantour.com/ for all things European. Whilst the sites do have sections for statistics; (https://www.pgatour.com/stats.html) for North American golf statistics & (http://www.europeantour.com/europeantour/stats/index.html) for European Tour statistics they are largely focused on players key performance areas within the game, driving accuracy, putting etc. so are not always directly transferrable to the golf betting arena. They are still useful resources to bear in mind however as we’ll discuss later. Of much more use are individual event pages that can be very useful when the majors come around.
Golf Majors Betting
In addition to the Weekly Tour Golf Tips there are of course four golf majors throughout the year. Because of the scale of these events there are generally a lot more markets on offer. We will always have golf tips for these events so be sure to visit our golf pages when these come around. The masters, US Open, UK Open and USPGA events are the four majors but we also provide an extensive service for the Players championship at Sawgrass. If you’re into golf you’ll be well aware of the infamous 17th ‘island’ hole where player’s nerves are tested like no other hole in golf. Even a small gust of wind can see the ball fly into the water and there are even markets for predicting this. So be sure to visit our golf betting tips page when these tournaments as FBT are sure to have some well thought out statistical markets on hand for entertainment as well as profit.
Some of our golf markets might seem rather ‘un-scientific’, in that we are not always making golf predictions about who will win tournaments necessarily, just that certain events may occur with the tournament. Rest assured that these predictions have all gone through the FBT research cycle and process. That is to say we have, as an absolute minimum, used statistical techniques such as regression analysis to arrive at our predictions. We study past results of a given tournament, prevailing weather information and player news. The beauty of this methodology is that more often than not it’s not about who wins, just that certain events occur within the touranment. This is a lovely way to bet, providing both excitement and entertainment but without the stress of picking the winner.
Golf Betting Tips
FBT offers a completely free Golf tipping service and the majority of our tools and techniques are readily exposed on this site. However, we stop short of publishing all of our information online as it has taken decades to accumulate and some less reputable golf prediction sites will just use it to drive affiliate sales and advertising revenues. You can approach us directly with requests for more information and those requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Where we publish golf betting offers and promotions available on bookmaker sites, it is purely for information purposes and we take no responsibility for the content and working practices of those organizations. We will, from time to time, refer to other high quality sources of data such as www.masters.org or www.pgatour.com as we do not pretend that we accumulate all of the stats ourselves (although we do have our own tools and resources), but we do openly admit using them to support the bet research phase of our tipping process. There are a vast number of golf odds comparison sites where our visitors are able to research the best odds but our mission is not to compare odds, but single out golf betting anomalies that represent significant value in our favor. Whilst we maintain a free golfing tips service, we do ask in return that you share our site and tips with your friends via social media, as we want as many people as possible to benefit from our golf picks and beat the bookmakers.
