Best Legal Golf Betting Apps

Golf betting is a much different beast than other sports, as there are no spreads or run lines, as the majority of golf bettors wager on outrights only. That means the prices for each golfer as far as odds are concerned become extremely important. This is why having multiple sportsbooks to get the best prices is essential. Here are two of our favorite golf betting apps.

  • Jason Day and Adam Scott (+700)
  • Tommy Fleetwood and Sergio Garcia (+900)
  • Patrick Cantlay and Patrick Reed (+1200)
  • Ryan Palmer and Jon Rahm (+1600)
