Paddy Power offer six places on Open Alstom de France Golf Betting

Paddy Power
Online betting site Paddy Power are offering six places at the Open Alstom de France golf betting this week. That offers some tremendous coverage for the action from Le Golf National. It was Graeme McDowell who lifted the title last year and he is back to defend his title, with the Northern Ireland star trading at a price of 11/1 with Paddy Power to go on and retain the title. He was embroiled in a great battle twelve months ago with South Africa‚Äôs Richard Sterne. He is also back for another shot at the tournament, but is a heavy outside shot at 50/1, not carrying the form to suggest that he is really going to lay down a challenge. But that is where there is great value in taking each way shots on the market, especially with an extra place on offer at Paddy Power. Trading as outright favourite for the tournament is Martin Kaymer, the 2014 US Open Champion. The German has looked pretty solid all season and he almost got himself a top ten finish last season at the Alstom Open De France. He actually has decent history at the tournament, having carded four top ten finishes from seven appearances. Kaymer is running as 9/1 favourite at Paddy Power. Other big names in the field trading well are Francesco Molinari at 18/1, with Thomas Bjorn, Jamie Donaldson and Victor Dubuisson hovering around the 25/1 mark. Take the extra coverage on offer at Paddy Power with their Extra Places promotion for the Open Alstom de France. This great offer runs through July 17th, so will include both the Sottish Open and British Open as well!

PGA Tour FedEx St Jude Classic Golf Betting Odds and Preview

Sports Betting
The FedEx St Jude Classic is the big focus on the PGA Tour golf betting this week as it is the final competitive action that the players will take on the Tour ahead of the 2014 US Open. There’s a good field out running this week, including the reigning champion Harris English, who frankly isn’t being heavily tipped here after not bringing great form into his title defence. He was in much better form when he arrived at TPC Southwind twelve months ago and carded the victory. It is big hitting Dustin Johnson who is running at the top of the market as 14/1 favourite with Boylesports this week. Johnson won the title here a couple of years ago and went out in search of back to back Southwind victories last year, putting in a great challenge with a T10 finish. His all round game is solid enough to get him in contention again here and plenty of top 15 finishes around for the season to warrant some value in the Top Ten Finish market at 6/4. England’s Lee Westwood will be tempting backers to have a shot at him, as he is looking chock-full of value at 6/5 in the top ten finish market. Like Johnson, he has won on this course before (back in 2010) and his overall form on the PGA Tour is more than enough to suggest that he is going to challenge this week. Westwood has posted three top tens in his last five starts on the PGA Tour this season. Punters probably won’t know what to do about Phil Mickelson. The big lefty was runner up here last year, but there is something about his game which will probably leave punters hanging and assessing his US Open chances instead of going close again here. There’s just an edge, the glue to pull of the components of his game together at the moment which is missing. Hasn’t managed to post a top ten finish this season on the PGA Tour, so assess where he’s at at the end of this ahead of US Open betting. There is a great promotion running at online betting site Boylesports for your FedEx St Jude Classic golf betting this week. Back a selection in the outright winner market and if your selection happens to finish second (which includes ties) then the bookmaker will refund your lost outright stake as a free bet up to the value of £100. New customers registering an account with Boylesports can get up to a free £50 bet as a welcome bonus. FedEx St Jude Classic Outright Winner Odds at Boylesports Dustin Johnson 14/1, Lee Westwood 16/1, Phil Mickelson 16/1, Ryan Palmer 18/1, Zach Johnson 25/1, Harris English 25/1, Graeme McDowell 30/1, John Senden 30/1, Paul Casey 35/1, Billy Horschel 35/1, Webb Simpson 35/1, bar 45/1

The Memorial Tournament Golf Betting Odds and Money Back Special

Rory McIlroy
Rory McIlroy returns to the PGA Tour this week after his venture over the European PGA, where he landed a win at Wentworth in the PGA Championship. His win took his world ranking back up to sixth, and was the culmination of a hot streak of play this season. McIlroy ha posted four consecutive top ten finishes over on the PGA Tour, six from nine events this season. So he is trending marvellously well at the moment, as the golf betting attention turns to The Memorial Tournament this week McIlroy is running at 8/1 outright favourite, but as he has yet to land a win on the PGA Tour this year, there is good enough value in him at 6/5 to take a Top Ten finish at the event (6/4 To Place). He will be looking to make up for a terrible time last season at The Memorial, where he finished six over par down in a share of 57th. Australia’s Adam Scott produced a victory last week too, taking a win on the PGA Tour at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial in Texas. Rounds of 66 on both Saturday and Sunday saw Scott get himself firmly in the frame for the win, and he took a play off win over Jason Dufner. Scott remains top of the world rankings with his victory and like McIlroy is tremendous value at 15/8 in a top ten finish bet this week, while he is running at 2/1 in the Place Market. Other contenders in the field this week include Matt Kuchar, Dustin Johnson, Jim Furyk, Jordan Spieth and Phil Mickelson, while other leading Europeans in the outright winner market are Justin Rose and Luke Donald. Matt Kuchar is the defending champion in Ohio, after carding a final round 68 for a two shot win over Kevin Chappell. Kuchar hit 17 of 18 fairways during his last round at 7/4 in the top ten finish market. The Memorial Tournament Outright Winner Odds at Boylesports Rory McIlroy 13/8, Adam Scott 2/1, MattKuchar 11/4, Justin Rose 7/2, Luke Donald 9/2, Jordan Spieth 5/1, Dustin Johnson 5/1, Jim Furyk 5/1, Phil Mickelson 11/2. Take a wager on the outright winner market at the Memorial this week, and if your backed selection finishes second (or tied 2nd), then you will get your lost stake back as a free bet from online betting site Boylesports. The maximum refund is £100 per customer and new customers registering an account with Boylesports can get up to a free £50 bet as a welcome bonus.

BMW PGA Championship Golf Predictions & Betting Odds

Sports Betting
One of the biggest tournaments on the Euro PGA Tour tees off this week, that being the BMW PGA Championship. This is hosted at Wentworth, England and there is a great crop of players taking favouritism at the head of the market, among them Luke Donald, who has won two of the last three editions. Online betting site Betfred are running a BMW PGA Championship promotion this week, where if your backed selection in the outright winner market finishes second to an Englishman, then you will get your lost stake refunded as a free bet. Along with Donald, both Lee Westwood and Justin Rose are trading in the top five of favourites for the title, both of them at 14/1 alongside Donald. Ian Poulter is in there as well, and Simon Khan, a loser in last year‚Äôs play off is back for another shot too. Will Rory McIlroy land his first BMW PGA Championship? The Northern Ireland star has been in ripe form this season over on the PGA Tour and he is trading as 12/1 favourite for his switch back to the Euro PGA this week. McIlroy has certainly nailed consistency this season, but he has found wins to be elusive. He has landed six top ten finishes (four in his last four starts) on the PGA Tour this season, with the closest to a win coming at the Honda Classic where he had to settled for second after a play off. Online betting site Betfair have an offer running on their sportsbook for your golf betting this week. If Rory McIlroy wins the BMW PGA Championship, then you will get your lost stake back on a selection in the outright winner market, an offer which provides fantastic coverage, up to the value of ¬£25. The Top Ten Finish market is looking packed with value this week, with Rory McIlroy heading the field as even money favourite. Given his form this season, that looks big value. Justin Rose, Sergio Garcia, Luke Donald and Lee Westwood are all around the 6/4 mark to land a top ten finish this week, so well worth dipping into the market for some value. Boylesports have a promotion running as well for BMW PGA Championship betting. Like the other bookies, they are offering a Money Back Special on the outright winner market. If your player finishes second or third (to anyone) then they will refund your lost stake up to ¬£100 (ties included). BMW PGA Championship Golf Betting Odds Rory McIlroy 12/1, Lee Westwood 14/1, Just Rose 14/1, Luke Donald 14/1, Sergio Garcia 18/1, Henrik Stenson 20/1, Martin Kaymer 22/1, Francesco Molinari 25/1, Charl Schwartzel 33/1, Miguel Angel Jimenez 33/1, Jamie Donaldson 33/1, Bar 40/1

Boylesports Golf Betting Money Back Specials – HP Byron Nelson and Open de Espana

Free Bets & Promotions
Online betting site Boylesports are offering a Money Back Special for golf betting on both the PGA Tour and the European PGA Tour events this week. On the PGA, the attention turns to the HP Byron Nelson, where Jordan Spieth 11/1, and Matt Kuchar 12/1 are heading up the market options. There is a great field in contention behind them with the likes of Keegan Bradley, Dustin Johnson and Charl Schwartzel to name but a few. Back a selection in the HP Byron Nelson field and if they end only just missing out on the title by finishing second, then the bookmaker will refund your lost stake for you. The offer extends to players who finish tied for second as well and the maximum refund is ¬£100 per customers. Over on the European Tour, Sergio Garcia will be hoping to delight home fans in the Open de Espana. The Spaniard is running as hot 5/1 favourite on home turf, ahead of the likes of Francesco Molinari, Thomas Bjorn and Miguel Angel Jimenez. Garcia has lifted the title just once before, back in 2002 when it was the Canarias Open de Espana. If your backed selection in the field finishes 2nd (or tied 2nd) to Sergio Garcia this week as the Spanish Open, then you will get your lost stake refunded as a free bet. The maximum refund is ¬£100 per customers. New customers registering an account with Boylesports can get up to a free ¬£50 bet as a welcome bonus.

PGATour The Players Championship Golf Betting Odds, Tips and Preview

Sports Betting

There’s a big prize pot on offer at TPC Sawgrass this week as the PGA Tour Golf betting heads to The Players. Big tournament. Big field. Big value. That just about sums up everything in a nice package. The Players of course is known as the fifth major, and that is just how big it is, and there is a $10 million prize purse on offer this week. It is a course which offers fantastic entertainment, because it just invites players to go and have a crack at it.

Tiger Woods is actually the reigning champion, but with no clue as to when he will be fully recovered from his surgery, he is not in the mix. That leaves, once again, Rory McIlroy and Adam Scott trading as the joint favourites to land the title this season. McIlroy is on a tear of top ten finishes this season and one of the best bets that you can grab this week is 5/4 on him getting another one this weekend. He has landed three on the bounce, four from six starts during this calendar year. Australia’s Adam Scott is a past winner of The Players, but his victory was over a decade ago. Has had another pretty solid year during 2014 with three top ten finishes since January 1st, and his lowest finish has been a T25 at the WGC Cadillac. His last two outings at TPC Sawgrass have been pretty solid, both top twenty finishes. It is probably best covering him, like Rory McIlroy in the Top Ten Finish market for the 2014 Players Championship golf betting where he is 13/8. A lot of punters may well be leaning towards Matt Kuchar this week, because while he has been suffering from a case of the Sunday jitters this season, he put them all behind him in winning the RBC Heritage recently. Bang in form and hard to ignore here, heading to TPC Sawgrass with four straight top five finishes under his belt. Oh yeah, he won The Players two years ago as well. A fantastic fit all around. So too is is Luke Donald, who is showing some pretty handy form at the moment, with top ten finishes in half of his last six starts. Has made the cut in each of his last seven outings at the Players, and each of his last three have produced top twenty results. You can pretty much bundle Sergio Garcia in there alongside Donald as well, as the Spaniard has made the cut in each of his last ten outings at TPC Sawgrass, including a victory in 2008 and earned a share of eighth last year. Online betting site Paddy Power have a great golf money back special running for the Players Championship. They are offering an extra place, so will be paying out to the first six places on the PGA Tour this week. This offer applies to bets placed on the tournament outright before the start of the event only, so you’ll get each way coverage on the top six places. 2014 Players Championship Golf Betting Odds at Paddy Power Rory McIlroy 14/1, Adam Scott 14/1, Matt Kuchar 18/1, Luke Donald 22/1, Sergio Garcia 22/1, Justin Rose 25/1, Henrik Stenson 25/1, Phil Mickelson 28/1, Jordan Spieth 30/1, Jim Furyk 30/1, Bubba Watson 33/1, Lee Westwood 33/1, Zach Johnson 33/1

PGATour Wells Fargo Golf Betting Money Back Special

Rory McIlroy

Online betting site Boylesports have a golf betting promotion running for the Wells Fargo tournament on the PGA Tour this week. There is a good strong European charge at the head of the field for your Wells Fargo Championship golf betting, with Rory McIlroy, Lee Westwood and Justin Rose all going well at the head of the market at Quail Hollow.

Rory McIlroy is running as outright favourite, as he has fantastic history here. This was the site of his PGA Tour breakthrough win back in 2010 and since has also lost in a play off there, and carded a top ten finish twelve months ago. McIlroy is the current owner of the course record as well and coming off some pretty strong performances at Houston and at the Masters, he is being backed heavily this week So too is Lee Westwood, and like McIlroy, has good history to back him up here. He has landed top five finishes in the last two starts and some steadily improving results saw him trend all the way to a win in Malaysia recently. Tough to split McIlroy, Westwood and Phil Mickelson for this one, so probably all of them are going to be worth looking at in either the Place Market or the Top Ten Finish market. Mickelson has actually never won the Wells Fargo, but no-one on the PGA Tour has earned more money than he has done at the event. Was third last year and has posted seven top tens in his last ten outings at Quail Hollow, so he naturally makes a good fit here, again looking great value at 5/4 in the top ten market, the same price at Westwood. Other big names in the field include Justin Rose who has hit a bit of form heading to Quail Hollow, a place where he has never really made an impact and Jim Furyk, who is back for the first time since 2010 when he posted a top ten finish. Has also been going well with top twenty finishes in each of his last four starts this season. Take a wager on the outright winner market, and if you're backed selection finishes second (or tied 2nd), then you will get your lost stake back as a free bet from online betting site Boylesports. THe maximum refund is £100 per customer and new customers registering an account with Boylesports can get up to a free £50 bet as a welcome bonus.

Wells Fargo Golf Betting Odds Rory McIlroy 7/1, Lee Westwood 16/1, Phil Mickelson 16/1, Justin Rose 20/1, Jim Furyk 28/1, Jimmy Walker 30/1, Rickie Fowler 301/, Zach Johnson 40/1, Ryan Moore 40/1, Webb Simpson 40/1, Hunter Mahan 401, bar 50/1

PGA Tour Zurich Classic Golf Betting Odds, Tips and Preview

Sports Betting

Online betting site Boylesports have rolled out a great golf betting promotion for the Zurich Classic this week where England’s Justin Rose is topping the outright winner market with 12/1 favouritism. Rose will be out after taking a break following his top fifteen at the Masters, and has a pretty solid track record at TPC Louisiana.

Rose has posted top twenty finishes in both of his last two appearances here, and with back to back top fifteen finishes on the PGA Tour this season, he could make a great fit for this week.

Back a selection in the outright winner market and if your selection finishes 2nd (or tied second) to Justin Rose, then the bookie will refund lost stakes as a free bet. The maximum refund on this offer is £100 per customer and applies to win single placed prior to the start of play on Thursday, April 23rd. New customers registering an account with the popular bookie Boylesports can also get up to a free £50 bet as a welcome bonus.

There is also great value in looking at Rickie Fowler this week too as he has posted three top six finishes over the last couple of months on the Tour and was supremely steady in landing a share of fifth place at Augusta in the MAsters. He has been out at TPC Louisiana three times before, never having missed the cut, with a T10 finish in 2012 his best result. This is the easiest par 72 of the season, so expect Fowler to go big on this one. In the outright winner market for Zurich Classic golf betting, Graham DeLaet has been trending very well. He has produced a pretty solid season,with five top tens and is third on the Tour this season for Greens In Regulation. He carded a share of fourth back in 2012 at TPC Louisiana so has a bit of history behind him. Could be worth taking some coverage in a Top Ten Finish wager for a price of 2/1. Ryan Palmer could also fall into that category. He holds a share of the course record at TPC Louisiana and he posted a share of fourth in 2012 as well. Looks to have gotten over his hip problem as he produced a great top ten finish in Houston. Given his track record at the course, should be in the mix for value in the top ten market. Palmer shares the course record with Russell Knox who is out in action at Harbour Town again, where he landed a top ten finish in his first ever visit. Zurich Classic PGA Tour Golf Betting Odds at Boylesports Justin Rose 12/1, Rickie Fowler 16/1, Keegan Bradley 20/1, Graham Delaet 25/1, Ryan Palmer 25/1, Matt Every 28/1, Patrick Reed 40/1, Kevin Stadler 40/1, Chris STrand 40/1, John Senden 40/1, Russell Knox 40/1, Billy Horschel 40/1, Nick Watney 40/1, Charley Hoffman 40/1, Fredrik Jacobsen 40/1, bar 50/1

RBC Heritage Golf Betting Odds and Preview

Sports Betting

It is back to business on the regular PGA Tour for your golf betting this week, as the excitement of the Masters 2014 dies down a bit. Online bookmaker Boylesports had to pay out a lot of lost stake refunds because of their Money Back Special promotion which they were running on a second place finish at Augusta. With Bubba Watson taking his second Green Jacket of his career, there was a tie behind him between Jordan Spieth and Jonas Blixt for second.

Punters who had placed bets of up to ¬£100 on Blixt or Spieth in the outright winner market, got their stakes refunded, but still, because of the popularity of Watson, the bookmaker still came out on top. But Boylesports are back this week with another Money Back Special Golf Betting promotion, focusing on the PGA Tour's RBC Heritage. Youngster Spieth is back in action straight away and is trading as 16/1 joint favourite alongside England‚Äôs Luke Donald. Donald has picked up two seconds and two thirds in the last five editions. Matt Kuchar, whose challenge at Augusta fell away on Sunday, is trading as 18/1 second favourite behind them, but has had some Sunday wobble lately, scoring no better than a 72 on any of his last Sundays. Other big names in the field trading well in RBC Heritage betting are Jim Furyk, Graeme McDowell, Zach Johnson, Harris English, Hunter Mahan and Brandt Snedeker. McDowell is the reigning champion, with Snedeker taking the title in 2011, and Jim Furyk the year before that. So big challengers in the field in a competitive market. Place an outright winner wager and if your selection finishes second (or tied 2nd) at the RBC Heritage, then online bookmaker Boylesports will refund your lost stake as a free bet, up to ¬£100. It paid off big last week for backers of Spieth and Blixt. RBC Heritage Golf Odds at Boylesports Jordan Spieth 16/1, Luke Donald 16/1, Matt Kuchar 18/1, Jim Furyk 20/1, Graeme McDowell 22/1, Zach Johnson 25/1, Harris English 33/1, Hunter Mahan 33/1, Brandt Snedeker 33/1, Kevin Na 33/1, Charl Schwartzel 33/1, Bar 40/1 New customers registering an account with Boylesports can get up to a free ¬£50 bet as a welcome bonus.

PGA Tour Valero Texas Open Golf Betting Odds and Money Back Special

Sports Betting

The build up to the 2014 Masters continues this week with the PGA Valero Texas Open betting. This is a popular tournament but betting on it will probably fall to a select few at the top of the field. Big Phil Mickelson is looking to get in peak form ahead of August and he is trading at a price of 16/1 which puts him as joint outright favourite in Valero Texas Open betting alongside Matt Kuchar and Zach Johnson.

That’s powerful trio for the rest of the field to try and get the better of, but golf betting is always tough to call when it comes to the outright market so the Top Ten Market is always a place where you can find good value. Johnson and Kuchar are 5/2 shots there for example, with Mickelson up at 11/4.

Jordan Spieth, Jimmy Walker and Jim Furyk are also good options at around 20/1 in the outright market, with Ryan Palmer and Charlie Hoffman around the 25/1 mark. Scotland’s Martin Laird is the current reigning champion at the San Antonio event and he is trading up at a price of 12/1 for a top ten finish.

Online betting site Boylesports are running a Valero Texas Open betting promotion for this week’s action. Back a selection in the outright winner market and if your player finishes second to either Zach Johnson, Phil Mickelson or Matt Kuchar at the event, then the bookie will refund your lost stake for you. This applies if your selection finishes tied for second as well.

New customers who register an account with popular bookmaker Boylesports can get up to a free £50 bet as a welcome bonus too. The bookie will match the value of your initial stake on an account with a free bet. Customers can also enjoy great live in-play golf betting throughout the week!
