Memorial Betting FAQs
What are the best Memorial tournament betting tips?
Memorial tournament tips can't guarantee that you will win with betting, but they can be used to understand the odds better. For example, if you're new to the tournament, there is a good chance you aren't familiar with the structure and rules, which can help when viewing the markets.
It's also valuable to understand who the favourites are and their form going into the tournament, so make sure you've done your research before selecting a bet on a player that has recently struggled to get from tee to green.
You can also get an idea of where individuals' strengths lie. Is their short game good around the green, or do they rely on their driving accuracy when ball striking? This can impact the number of strokes gained if they aren't suited for the course.
Closer to the tournament starting, you can get an idea of how the weather looks. This can impact players' performances significantly, with wind altering the ball's direction. Weather conditions affect some players more than others, with elite players learning to play in less desirable settings.
