Early Betting on this Year’s Scottish Open

There does appear to be no end of Golf Tournaments this summer, and another one to add onto your list of ones you may be interested in betting on is the Scottish Open.

It is up in Aberdeen at the Gullane Golf Club that tournament is being played on and the action starts this Thursday and will end on Saturday.

When it comes to betting on the ante post betting markets there really is plenty of value to be had right now, for all of the leading golfers taking part in that tournament have some rather tempting odds associated with them, and any of them could win that event.

In fact, winning the Scottish Open this year will be a major pay day, for the prize purse I huge at some €5,869,535, and with odds of 8/1 on Justin Rose and 9.1 on Rickie Fowler you too could be in the money if you secure those high odds and the golfer you select goes on to win that tournament!

I think you should however check out the odds on offer at Betfred if you do fancy betting any other golfers to win or get placed in the Scottish Open, much more so on the each-way betting opportunities, as that leading and top rated betting site are going one fifth the odds on the first seven placed finishers, which is two more positions than most other betting sites are paying out to!

Russell Knox a Fair Bet at 20/1

There are a number of golfers that are chalked up at odds of 16/1 that are bound to attract each-way vultures and those golfers include Hideki Matsuyama and Patrick Reed.

However, when it comes to a golfer that should get placed in this tournament at the very least I have my eye on Russell Knox who is the value bet of the day surely being as he is currently on offer at odds  of 20/1!

Could a Complete Outsider Win?

How do you fancy taking your chances on a complete outsider winning the Scottish Open this year, well if you bet on any of the 100/1 shots to win each-way and they do get placed in one of the top seven positions and you have bet at Betfred you are still going to get a huge pay-out even if they don’t win.

If that is something you do fancy doing then it should be golfers such as Danny Willett and Eddie Pepperell you bet on, as both of them do posses the raw talent to win a tournament of this nature.

However, there are plenty of other golfers who odds are 100/1 to consider and they include the likes of Erik Van Rooyen, George Coetzee, Matt Wallace and Dean Burmester.

You could even bet on the likes of Andrew Johnston, Thomas Detry, Alexander Levy, Soren Kjeldsen and Lucas Bjerregaard and by doing so and betting sooner rather than later you should be able to secure odds of a whopping 125/1 on each of them!
