The European Tour is always going to be offering golf fanatics a range of betting opportunities, and as it is the Irish Open leg of that tour that is starting today you will have to get your skates on if you fancy having a bet on it!
That golf tournament is being held at the Ballyliffin Golf Club and with a whopping €5,869,535 in the prize purse; all of the golfers taking part in it will want to win a share of it!
However, as far as betting opportunities go, you really are going to be spoilt for choice, however it may be the outright betting markets that interests you the most, and if that is the case be aware that if you are planning on placing an each-way bet many of our featured betting sites are going one quarter the odds on the first five finishers.
It looks like Rory Mcilroy at 5/1 and Jon Rahm at 6/1 are the two golfers the bookies fear, and to be fair it is those two that most punters are backing to win.
A couple of other golfers who may just beat their odds and win this major golf tournament are Rafael Cabrera Bello who can be had at odds of 14/1 and also Russell Knox who does liok a value bet at 18/1!
To Finish in the Top 5
Instead of placing an each-way bet and possibly wasting the win part of your bet, betting sites such as Betfred are offering you the option of betting on a golfer to finish in the top five betting market, and that does open up a world of betting opportunities.
The two favourites those being Rory Mcilroy can be had at odds of 13/10 and Jon Rahm the other favourite to win is 6/4 to be placed in the top five, but do consider players such as Paul Dunne at 5/1 and Kiradech Aphibarnrat at 11/2, as either of them could quite easily make it into the top five positions.
Name a Player to Finish in the Top 10 Positions
You can also bet on which golfer or golfers you think are going to finish in any of the top 10 positions of the Irish Open too, and when you learn that the odds of Rory Mcilroy doing so are 4/6 and the odds on Jon Rahm finishing in the top ten are 8/11, you really are going to want to place a bet on them!
But for some much better returns it may be beneficial for you to look at some of the other golfers who do have a good track record in such tournaments and will be offering you much higher odds on this betting market too.
With that in mind both Julian Suri and Ryan Fox look rock solid bets at 6/1 and there is always the chance that Jordan Smith or Dean Burmester could both squeeze into one of the top 10 positions at the end of this golf tournament and their odds of doing so are huge at 8/1!
