British Open Betting a Cure for the Recession Blues?

British Open Betting

The British Open ranks as the most bet on event in the United Kingdom.  The popular golf tournament begins Thursday July 16.

Betting on the British Open and other golf events can pay out big, especially during these tough economic times.  And the risk, it's nominal.

Aside from Tiger Woods, all other contenders would pay at least $110 for every $10 bet at Sports Interaction.

Sure, with such a large field, picking the right golfer is tough but not impossible.

Look at Padraig Harrington, winner of the last two British Opens.  He would pay the next best odds after Tiger:  $110 for every $10 bet; $1100 for every $100 bet.  Sergio Garcia follows with $120; Phil Mickelson with $160 and Ernie Els with $200, all on a $10 bet.

But you might want to consider some of the long shots as well.  Hunter Mahan pays $500 for every $10 bet.  Extreme long shots like David Howell pay out $1000 for every $10 bet and $10000 for every $100 bet

Sure your odds of winning with big long shots get much longer, but the payouts could prove extraordinary as they have in the past.  Folks like Padraig Harrington and Angel Cabrera have paid in the thousands for those who bet them early on.
