Betting On LIV Teams & Maximizing Payouts Based On Hole

Betting Strategies For The LIV Bedminster Event

Despite winning both events so far, Stinger GC(+600) only has the third shortest odds to win LIV Bedminster behind the 4 Aces (+185) and Crushers GC(+500).
The unique shotgun start setup may give bettors the ability to get larger payouts if they wait to live bet golfers who tee off between 9 and 13.

BEDMINSTER, N.J. – The third LIV tour event tees off Friday in Bedminster, New Jersey.

Through two events underdogs have thrived. Branden Grace (+2800) won in Portland and Charl Schwartzel (+2800) won in the opening tournament in London.

Live Betting Strategy At LIV Bedminster

The LIV shotgun start setup creates more immediate action from the start, but it also opens the door for golf bettors to bet based on unique starting positions.

What that means is bettors may have an opportunity to predict which golfers whose odds may lengthen at the beginning of the event simply based on the Bedminster Old Course’s layout.

Getting those golfers after they begin on difficult holes may be a way to secure extra large payouts.

Specifically, golfers that start on in the hole nine to 13 range are likely to struggle early. Over those holes, it appears the golf course will play much more difficult.

Hole Range:
Yards:
Yards Per Hole:
Par Average:
Yards Per Shot:

9-13
2328
465.6
4
116.4

14-8
5393
414.8461538
4
103.7115385

Expecting golfers to falter on 9-13 will likely be wise because of how long the par fours. That means waiting out that stretch may lead to longer odds on the other side, with the opposite being true for golfers as well.

When they begin on the easier holes, their scores will likely look better than expected and will have worse payouts than they truly deserve.
