Betting Note: Betting amounts are based on confidence level. My normal betting amounts are $125, $250 & $500, although I will go as low as $62.50 and as high as $1,000 on occasion. My most common bet is $125 and if you classify that as 1 unit, then I have made a 667.93 unit profit from 2014-2020. (full stats)

E/W (Each-Way) bets means you split that amount. So if it is a $250 E/W bet, that means $125 on them to win, $125 on them to place (Usually in the Top 5).

This week on the Champions Tour, it is the prestigious US Senior Open.

This major was launched in 1980 and taken down by Roberto De Vicenzo. Over the years the best player on this tournament is Miller barber who won in 1982, 1984 and 1985. More recently, Allen Doyle won it back to back in 2005 and 2006.

It’s always held at a different course in the USA. Last year for example was the Oak Tree National in Oklahaoma, and the year prior was the Omaha Country Club in Nebraska.

This year it is being played at the Del Paso Country Club in Sacramento, California. This club just recently renovated the course and it’s a nice one that should be a lot of fun to watch.

Can Monty do the double? The bookies think he’s a possible winner as he is 3rd favourite in the odds. However the favourite is Miguel Angel Jimenez – not really a surprise considering his form this year. He’s killed it on the European Tour and the few Senior Open events he has participated in have went well – winning the Mitsubishi Electric Championship.

It’s going to be a good one – let’s check the odds then get to the Senior Open Betting Tips:

Senior Open 2015 Betting Odds:

  1. Miguel Angel Jimenez: 13/2
  2. Bernhard Langer: 6/1
  3. Colin Montgomerie: 15/2
  4. Joe Durant: 12/1
  5. Kenny Perry: 14/1
  6. Jeff Maggert: 20/1
  7. Tom Lehman: 20/1
  8. Woody Austin: 20/1
  9. Kirk Triplett: 22/1
  10. Michael Allen: 28/1

It’s a loaded field. Let’s get to the betting tips:

Senior Open Betting Tip #1: Kirk Triplett

Ah good old Kirk Triplett. A legend for us as when we first launched this site he made us money right off the bat.

Triplett is heating up. We saw that 2 weeks ago at the Senior Players Championship. he started off with a 70 and ended the day with a 64. That was great considering he was 3 strokes ahead of 3rd place – but way behind leader Bernhard Langer. Essentially he had nothing to play for yet he continued to rock it showing his game is where it should be.

It’s been a long time coming for Triplett who has been heating up for awhile now. 13th in the Senior PGA Championship and 10th in the Charity Classic – we’re hoping that Triplett can continue his excellent run of form and get us a win here.

A nice price of 22/1 helps too.

Bet: Kirk Triplett to win, and bet E/W as well at Bovada for Americans.

Senior Open Betting Tip #2: Tom Pernice Jr.

Another golfer who has some decent odds and is in solid form is Tom Pernice Jr.

Last time out at the Senior Players Championship he had a horrific day – but he ended it in fine form. Round 2 he shot a 75 but Round 4 a 65 – 10 freaking strokes difference. We have to hope he is chomping at the bit for this tournament.

We’ll be backing him with a half unit.

Bet: Half a unit on Tom Pernice Jr to win and E/W at

Since 2014 I've been providing free golf tips on a weekly basis. Each tournament analysis, research and writing the betting tips takes over 10 hours per tournament. That doesn’t include watching each tournament and taking notes etc. It's why I do less and less non-PGA tips these days.

I’ve delivered a lot of big winners over the years, and all I ask is if you appreciate the work I put in and so I can continue to keep the tips free, a donation is highly recommended and much appreciated.

While I obviously make enough money from my golf bets, this sort of financial support would motivate me to write more content on here. This would include golf prop bets like first round leader, head vs head and much more plus daily fantasy golf articles. Cheers!
