Bet on GolfGolf betting will resume with the second tournament on the playoff tour with the Deutsche Bank Championship from Boston, Massachusetts. Golf betting fans will handicap a Deutsche Bank Championship that is worth a total of $7,500,000 with a winning share of $1,200,000. Vijay Singh is the defending champ.
Golf betting fans saw Heath Slocum win last week’s The Barclay’s to open the pro golf playoffs as the American held off Ernie Els, Padraig Harrington, Tiger Woods, and Steve Stricker by 1 stroke to enter the Deutsche Bank Championship with unexpected momentum. With the win Slocum rocketed from 124th place to 3rd in the FedExCup standings. Last year’s Deutsche winner, Singh, failed to msake the cut at The Barclays.
Tiger Woods is still the top man in the golf betting standings followed by Stricker. Zach Johnson, Kenny Perry, YE Yang, Nick Watney, Brian Gay, Lucas Glover, and Phil Mickelson round out the golf betting top 10.
The golf betting field for this weekend’s event will be the top 10 in the PGA Tour playoff standings and only 70 will make it afterwards for next week’s BMW Championship. This is the third consecutive year that this golf betting event will be played at a revamped TPC Boston course which was given a more New England flavor after the 2006 event.
The two biggest names in golf betting, Woods and Mickelson, are both committed to the event. The rest of the top 10 is also expected to be in the field. Stricker is a player to keep an eye on as he could be an outstanding golf betting value. Stricker has played in 19 events with 16 cuts made an 9 top 10 finishes with 2 wins, 2 second place finishes and 1 third place finish. This year he won the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and the John Deere Classic.
Harrington is another player to keep an eye on for value as he is playing his best golf of the year over the past month and is not afraid of the limelight or the best competition as a two-time British Open winner.
