The Masters: In-Play Trading Pointers And Advice

Jordan Spieth (3.60) played some excellent golf yesterday but he had a bit of luck in the process. It's likely the Augusta course will get faster and firmer as the week goes on and then Jordan and other shorter hitters may find it tougher to get near the pins.

The 64 Jordan shot is actually excellent for in play Betfair back-to-lay traders as it serves to massively inflate the prices of those a few shots behind, especially those not perceived by the layers as potential Masters winners.

#Backtolay in:play trading pointers

I've dutched Garcia(21.00), Palmer(50.00), Els(50.00), Simpson(110.0) at a combined average of around 9/1. I don't necessarily expect these guys to be there at the end of 72 holes but this type of play is not about that. I do fancy that 1 or 2 may be right there after 54, giving us a good position, and we are getting good value on it happening, especially as they are all out in the (expected) best of conditions on day 2 Friday.

(To a £100 stake, to keep it simple) the strategy is to place £10 on Simpson, £50 on Garcia, and £20 on each of Palmer and Els. This would see approximately a 9/1 return on total outlay should any of the four end up wearing the green jacket. The plan though is to equalise / green up (trade out of your position completely) after 54 holes, if possible - + or -.......

What is expected Strokes Gained Course Fit ?

Bryan pioneered the concept of Expected Strokes Gained Course Fit (xSGF) in golf betting. xSGF can be predicted using my model below. For prospective golf betting tips it projects ahead of time how many shots a player is expected to pick up per round on average on a particular golf course. It's weighed against a neutral golf course of the same rating.

What is Progressive Form in Golf Betting?

Progressive form in golf betting differs from current form in that players are showing a trend in the right direction in their recent scoring. Trending form has a high predictive value in golf betting and can also catch players under the radar at an inflated price vs their true betting odds.
