Golf: Each Way Betting Guide

Picking the outright winner in a professional tournament can be tough as there are so many runners in the field - which is why many people prefer to place each-way bets on golf.

We have put together an Each Way betting guide to help you with your Golf bets.

What is an Each Way bet?

Each Way Golf betting allows a bettor to place a bet on a player not just to win, but also to place. Essentially, you are placing two separate bets when you back a player each-way in a golf tournament - one on the golfer to win the whole event and the other on the player to finish near the top of the leaderboard.

The number of places to pay-out can vary in each tournament, with five often the standard, but in recent years that has increased and now often ranges between five and 12.

The dead-heat rule also comes into play more frequently in golf. This is when two or more participants tie for a position in an event. There won't be a dead heat for the actual winner of a tournament, as a play-off is usually decided to determine the overall champion.

Should your selection finish tied in an event, then dead heat rules state that your stake will be divided by the number of competitors involved in the dead heat and then settled at the normal odds.

Staking an Each Way bet

Because an each-way wager comprises two bets, the total staked is twice the unit stake. For example, a £5 each-way single would cost £10.

Each Way Extra

Each Way Extra gives you the option to increase or decrease the number of places when you are betting pre-event on the To Win Outright market on selected Golf events – add places on to your Each Way Golf bets for extra security at lower odds, or increase the price by removing places.

The number of Each Way Extra places offered on an event can be viewed on the Each Way Extra coupon or on the bet slip.

Each Way Extra Terms and Conditions

How to access Each Way Extra

Simply select the ‘Each Way Extra’ market from the selected Golf coupon to see the additional place terms that are available on your chosen event before the first group tees off.

Once you have selected a price and the corresponding number of places from the Each Way Extra coupon, it will appear on your bet slip.

Each Way Extra is available for pre-event single bets on selected Golf events. It is offered at the discretion of bet365 and may be amended or removed for any event. Bets placed on the Each Way Extra market cannot be Cashed Out or amended using the Edit Bet feature.
