Anybody who enjoys watching golf and also betting on that sport, does have plenty of golf tournaments to pick and choose from throughout the summer months, however one tournament that you may overlook is the John Deere Tournament.
It starts today over in Illinois in the USA and is scheduled to run for four days, with the last games being played on the 15th of July. Being a PGA Tour you will find there are no shortages of golfers taking part in it, and with a mind blowing prize purse of some $5,800,000 it is a golf tournament worth winning!
However, one thing that is bound to appeal to a great many sports bettors who are thinking of placing a bet on that major golf event is that there are betting sites such as Betfred that will pay out on each-way bets one fifth of the win odds on the golfers that finish in any of the first seven places.
When you couple that fact with the high odds currently attached to each player to win the event on the outright betting markets you can see when now really should be the time you are placing your bets on the John Deere Tournament!
Most Likely Winners
You will probably already be very familiar with the names of the golfers that are the favourites to win this tournament and those players and their respective odds include the licks of Francesco Molinari at 9/1, Bryson Dechambeau at 10/1 and the highly talented Zach Johnson at 12/1 too.
But there are several other golfers that are currently heading the betting markets and they include experienced golfers such as Joaquin Niemann at 14/1, Steve Stricker at 18/1, Ryan Moore at 18/1, Chesson Hadley at 22/1 and also Kyle Stanley at 25/1.
Each Way Betting
You will of course get a winning pay-out if you back any of the above named golfers each-way and any of them do finish in the top seven positions when betting at sites like Betfred.
However, there are plenty of other golfers taking part in the John Deere classic that have just a much chance of getting placed on the leader board this year including Chris Kirk at 30/1, Austin Cook at 30/1, Aaron Wise at 33/1 and Wesley Bryan at 33/1.
I am of the mind however that the savviest punters out there who are going to be placing each way bets on this event are going to be betting on more than one golfer to increase their winning chances and a couple of other golfers to consider are Patrick Rodgers at 40/1 and Andrew Landry at 40/1.
But as is always the case there is a chance that some of the other mid-priced golfers could also suddenly find their form and win or get placed in the major golf tournament and I would certainly not put you off backing Scott Piercy at 45/1, Brian Gay at 45/1, Chez Reavie at 45/1, David Lingmerth at 50/1 or Si-Woo Kim at 50/1 to win!
