Paul Krishnamurty lays out a detailed staking plan to capitalise the next time it happens Every week, we at betting. My Find Me a Winner column, for instance, involves backing players at big odds with a view to banking a profit if they shorten up once the tournament is underway.
Likewise, Steve Rawlings runs through all his in-running trades on the ' In-play blog '. Last week Steve employed a change of tack, seeking to build his book solely by laying players, with great success. In light of Sunday's dramatic finish to the Travelers Championship, this is an ideal time to further explore that idea. Many punters consider laying, rather than backing, as the best way to go about golf betting as the nature of the sport often seems geared towards dramatic turnarounds where several leaders trade at short odds before losing.
It is of course much more complex than that and largely dependent on the nature of the course. You would have lost plenty, for instance, laying front-runners at St Andrews over the years. However there are some courses that tend to produce betting volatility almost every year, and as Steve laid out in his preview , last week's River Highlands venue had more than proved it's worth in that regard.
So rather than blindly following this plan every week, check out past results and pick the events best suited to laying front-runners. There is no exact science to trading, but a consistent staking plan is essential in order to judge the merit of a strategy. Plus, designing a pre-set plan for a tournament removes the need to make difficult in-play decisions or watch the event in it's entirety.
See below for how such a plan, involving no more work beyond updating a series of lay orders before each round, would have paid dividends at the Travelers.
