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.

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).

With the WGC Bridgestone Invitational taking place, the PGA has another event for those not participating in it which is the Barracuda Championship

The Barracuda Championship, known previously as the Rena-Tahoe Open has had its fair share of winners over the years with the likes of Scott Piercy, Vaughn Taylor and Kirk Triplett winning it.

It takes place in Nevada at the Montreau Golf and Country Club. It’s a bit of a tricky course in all honestly which rewards risk more than anything, and the approach shot is always key here. Jack Nicklaus designed the course. There are quite a few par 5s that can be eagled here that we’ll see some of the better golfers aim for.

Let’s check out the betting odds:

Barracuda Championship 2015 Betting Odds:

  1. Brendan Steele: 14/1
  2. Geoff Ogilvy: 14/1

  5. Will Wilcox: 20/1
  6. Ollie Schniederjans: 25/1
  7. Kyle Stanley: 33/1
  8. Jonathan Byrd: 33/1
  9. Adam Hadwin: 35/1
  10. Bryce Molder: 35/1

David Toms is also 35/1. Let’s get to the tips:

Barracuda Championship Betting Tip #1: Andres Romero

Andres Romero has had some fine form in this tournament over the last 3 years. While he came 27th last year he had two top 5 finishes before that.

Most importantly, the Argentinian is on form. In his last 4 tournaments he’s had two top 10 finishes, and made the cuts in the others. He’s been playing some solid golf and we’re hoping he can peak here.

Just a quarter unit though.

Bet: Romero to win and E/W at Bovada for Americans.

Unfortunately, that is the only bet we want to make for the Barracuda Championship. As we look through it all, we just don’t see any particular golfer stand out other than Romero. There’s a few possibilities but the one thing we don’t want to do is gamble. We want to make cold, calculated bets. And after thinking about it – anything else? It’s just a gamble.

Let’s go Romero.


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!
