Place Betting on the Open Championship 2013

Jiminez OpenThe Open championship, or any golfing major for that matter, always sparks a frenzy of activity from bookmakers eager to get punters betting with them. The key battle ground is not always the best outright prices – but the number of places paid for each way or place bets. The 2013 Open Championship was no different with firms boasting of paying out to 6th, 7th or even 8th place (with BetVictor) for each way speculators.

It is important to note though, that the majority of those terms have now changed since the first players teed off at 06:32 on Thursday. Anyone looking to bet in play on the Open, and wanting to bet each way, needs to double check the places being paid by their bookmaker, as almost all have reduced the number, below is a quick guide to the places paid for bets made in running by the major firms;

Each Way paid to 6 places
Paddy Power

Each Way paid to 5 places
William Hill

With ties, the extra place offered by those firms may make all the difference.
