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.
