Extra Places Each Way – Open Championship

The Open Championship is the biggest betting event of every golfing season. Millions of avid golf fans and recreational punters get involved each year, looking to find the next Francesco Molinari, Jordan Spieth, Henrik Stenson, Zach Johnson or Rory McIlroy to boost their bank balance.

With millions of pounds at stake, the online betting firms inject plenty of promotional cash into making sure that you back your selections with them. Back in 2009, Paddy Power revolutionised Open Championship betting by going 7 places each way at Turnberry and they gained thousands of new customers into the bargain. But the golf betting industry has moved on and there will be a host of bookmakers who offer 10 places each-way at 1/5 odds at the 2019 Open Championship hosted a Royal Portrush. So if you want to know which bookmakers are paying 10 places at this year’s Open Championship, read on!

10 Places Each Way at the Open Championship

The Open in July always throws up plenty of betting drama. Yes Francesco Molinari (33/1), Jordan Spieth (16/1), Henrik Stenson (33/1), Rory McIlroy (20/1) and Phil Mickelson (20/1) have won recent Open Championships, but Zach Johnson (110/1), Darren Clarke (200/1), Louis Oosthuizen (250/1) and Stewart Cink (175/1) have also triumphed since 2009 – and who can forget Tom Watson almost winning at Turnberry with a 750/1 price riding on him?

Big priced players year after year finish in the each way places as well with Kisner, (300/1), Chappell (250/1), Hao-tong Li (300/1), Holmes (200/1), Stricker (250/1), Molinari (200/1), Leishman (150/1), Matsuyama (150/1) and Snedeker (175/1) all producing huge profits for savvy punters in recent times. These are the typical kinds of prices that pay out in golf, but naturally it always makes perfect sense to work the bookmakers and get the right balance between player price and number of each way places.

Open Championship Each Way Places Tracker

We’ve been tracking for a number of years the value dished out by online bookmakers across the major golf tournaments. Extended each-way terms gives punters a huge boost in terms of profit potential and is the perfect promotion for those who love to back big-priced longshots. With some High Street bookmakers still giving their customers the bare minimum when it comes to each-way terms plus ridiculous money-back offers, savvy online punters have been using online bookies who have been offering far better value to their customers now for years.

Why Extra Places Each Way?

Maximising the number of places paid by bookmakers for each-way bets is absolutely essential when backing your selection(s) at The Open. After all, anything can happen in golf and the additional spots over and above the standard 5 places provides an increased chance of getting a return.

2018: The Open Championship hosted at Carnoustie saw Coral and Paddy Power offer 10 places each-way at 1/5 odds to its customers. That proved amazingly beneficial for punters who’d backed Kevin Chappell, Eddie Pepperell and Tiger Woods who all finished T6, as they received full-each-way payouts at 200/1, 125/1 and 25/1 respectively. Those that placed bets on those players with Ladbrokes (5 places each-way 1/4 odds) received no each-way return at all, and other punters who used the likes of Betfred, BetVictor and William Hill received reduced part each-way returns as they only paid out to 7 places each-way at 1/5 odds.

In addition, Tony Finau, Matt Kuchar and Jordan Spieth backers through Coral and Paddy Power also benefitted as these 3 Americans tied for 9th place. Finau was 66/1, with Kuchar 66/1 and Spieth 18/1. So punters who had pocketed 10 places when placing their bets received their place money, reduced by 33% as 11 players finished in the top 10. Naturally the majority of United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland residents who’d bet on these players with other bookmakers received no return at all.

2017: Brooks Koepka, Branden Grace, Alex Noren, Matthew Southgate and Marc Leishman all tied for 6th spot at Royal Birkdale. Those who’d backed these players with Betfred, BetVictor or Ladbrokes who all offered 6 places each-way at 1/4 odds saw their place returns reduced by a whopping 80%. Boylesports and William Hill offered 7 places each-way at 1/5 odds, so their punters received a 60% reduction for the place. Punters who’d backed any one of these players with bet365, Betfair Sportsbook, Coral or Paddy Power received a 40% reduction on their place return, as these bookmakers all offered 8 places each-way at 1/5 odds pre-tournament.

2016: Sergio Garcia, Rory McIlroy and Tyrrell Hatton all tied for 5th place in 2016 which meant reduced each-way payouts for bet365, Betfred, BetVictor, Betway, Boylesports, Ladbrokes and Totesport customers. Andrew ‘Beef’ Johnston finished in 8th places on his own which meant that punters who’d backed the Englishman with Paddy Power got a full each-way payout at 250/1, meaning a hefty 50/1 for the place.

2015: Danny Willett, Jordan Niebrugge, Sergio Garcia and Justin Rose all tied for 6th place in 2015 which meant no return for Coral customers, however Betfair Sportsbook punters were laughing as they got a 75% payout on the place which was three times better than those using bet365, Betfred, BetVictor, Betway, Boylesports, Ladbrokes, Totesport or William Hill.

2014: 8 players filled the 8 places each way spots offered up by Betfair Sportsbook and Betfred in 2014. Ex Ryder Cup star Edoardo Molinari produced a strong performance which generated a full each way place return for those with the foresight to go 8 places each way. A £10 each way stake generated a £490 return, but only for Betfair and Betfred customers.

2013: BetVictor punters received full each-way returns across the top 8 players, including Tiger Woods (9/1), Zach Johnson (80/1) and Hideki Matsuyama (150/1). Amazingly Coral punters both in-store and online, received a paltry 5 places each way. Naturally none of their customers received a penny across Tiger, Zach and Hideki. Ouch!
