PLEASE NOTE - These offers refer to the 2013 Open Championship only. Any Open Championship 8 places each way offers for the 2014 event at Hoylake will be detailed on this page as soon as they're announced.
Each way betting at The Open: Normally you can back players each way in golf and get paid out up to 5th place 1/4 odds; in bigger tournaments and the Majors some bookies will extend this to 6 places. For the Open, however, BetVictor have surpassed all others and extended their each way terms to 8 places at 1/4 the odds - now that's incredible value! BetVictor are also offering GBS readers a £/€25 matched free bet when you open a new account. Make sure you maximise your profit potential by going 8 places each way with BetVictor and grab yourself a £25 free bet into the bargain.
As is becoming traditional in golf betting markets right now, BetVictor are leading the way for value-hunting punters at the Open Championship. Across this magnificent summer of regular golf events, BetVictor have been regularly offering 6 place extended Each Way terms where other bookmakers have been rigid and not moved from their traditional 5 place each way terms.
For the 2013 Open Championship, BetVictor have continued their strategy of offering consistent value on golf betting by offering a market leading Open Championship 8 places each way terms at 1/4 odds. If you haven't already opened a BetVictor account, you will also receive a no quibble free bet, matching the stake of your initial opening bet up to a maximum of £/€25. So 8 places each way and a £/€25 free bet into the bargain! For full details/terms and conditions click here.
So how does BetVictor stack up against the competition at this year's Open? Well looking back at 2012, Coral offered the standard 5 Places each way at 1/4 odds whilst Ladbrokes, William Hill and BetFred offered 6 places each way. Fast forward to this year and Paddy Power have already moved to their traditional 7 places each way promotion, with Bet365 and BetFred at 6 places each way.
Placing your bets with a bookmaker that offers extended each way terms is absolutely critical at The Open where long priced players deliver every single year. Rewind 12 months, where Brandt Snedeker finished 3rd and delivered a 175/1 each way payout for his backers.
Brandt Snedeker finished 3rd at Lytham at a huge 175/1
Paddy Power punters who took advantage of the Irish bookmakers' 7 Places each way terms also received part payouts on Nicolas Colsaerts (80/1) and Thomas Aiken (250/1). Coral, Ladbrokes or William Hill punters on the same players received no payout at all. It's also worth remembering that in 3 of the past 4 Open Championships, Darren Clarke, Louis Oosthuizen and Stewart Cink won at 200/1, 250/1 and 175/1 respectively. It happens!
