Golf odds explained

There are a number of options for betting on golf, when looking at how to bet on the PGA. You can wager on who will win a tournament, bet on the finishing positions of the participants, try to identify the best-performing golfer from a pair or group, and much more. Here’s a look at how various golf bets work:

Tournament winner

When it comes to wagering on golf, the featured attraction often is the winner of a tournament. There will be odds for all of the golfers who are scheduled to compete. Since choosing the outright winner from a field that’s typically filled with 100+ participants is challenging, the odds can be fairly long, even for the favorites.

To win the current event: 

Finishing positions

Beyond wagering on the winner, you can also bet on where a golfer will place at the event. There are several options for each tournament, including the top five, top 10, and top 20. For a general rule, the higher the finish, the higher the odds will be. As an example, consider the following odds from a previous tournament: 

Tiger Woods finishing position:


You can also wager on who will do the best in a tournament out of pairings or groups of golfers. The odds for head-to-heads look like a standard moneyline bet: negative for favorites and positive for underdogs.

For a three-way bet, you’ll also have the option to wager on a tie.

Match winner three-way

If you are betting on a three-ball group, the favorite will sometimes have negative odds but could also have the lowest of three positive numbers.

Golf odds FAQ

How do golf betting odds work? 

Golf odds work similarly to other sports. The odds represent the likelihood of an outcome happening, whether it be the winner of a tournament or the best-scoring golfer in a head-to-head matchup. 

How much could you potentially win on +1000 odds in golf betting? 

The return on a winning bet at odds of +1000 will depend on how much you wagered. For example, if you wagered $10 at odds of +1000 and won, you would be looking at $100 in profit. A winning $100 bet at +1000 would get you $1,000 in profit.
