The John Deere Classic Starts Today in Illinois

While most sports fans have been eagerly cheering on their national football teams in the World Cup, and even pinning their hopes on their favourite tennis player winning Wimbledon, there are also lots of golf tournaments running throughout the summer months.

One that is starting today in which you are going to see some of the best golfers taking their chances on the green is the John Deere Classic, which is in play through to Sunday the 15th and as is always the case there is a massive prize purse on offer which this year is worth $5,800,000.

Therefore if you want to both watch and bet on which golfer you think will win that tournament, it is being broadcast on a number of sports channels, and most betting sites will of course be offering you several different betting markets on it too.

But I have to say that Betfred are offering some of the best odds and also on each-way bets on that event they will give you one fifth of the win odds if you place an each-way bet and they pay-out to seven places too.

Betting Market Leaders

Four favourites to be pencilled up at the odds they currently are on the John Deere golf tournament you really should be picking out a winner from the likes of Francesco Molinari at 9/1, Bryson Dechambeau at 10/1, Zach Johnson at 12/1 and also Joaquin Niemann at 14/1 as the rewards are there for the taking.

Some other golfers to throw into the mix who really do have an excellent chance of winning include Steve Stricker at 18/1, Ryan Moore at 18/1, Chesson Hadley at 22/1 and possibly Kyle Stanley at 25/1.

Other Potential Winners

It is going to take you some time to look up the form and then work out the winning chances of all of the golfers taking part in this event for the list of entrants is huge.

But some sensible bets and ones that should give you  good run for your money include Chris Kirk at 30/1, Austin Cook at 30/1, Aaron Wise at 33/1, Wesley Bryan at 33/1 and Patrick Rodgers at 40/1.

Never be put off placing more than one bet, if you are thinking of betting each-way for you can of course place seven bets and each of the golfers you select could end up finishing in one of the top seven positions which will then guarantee a winning pay-out.

With that in mind there is some true value to be had by placing an each-way bet on Andrew Landry at 40/1, Scott Piercy at 45/1 or even Brian Gay and Chez Reavie at who are both 45/1, and you could end up with a huge winning pay-out if you back the likes of  David Lingmerth at 50/1 and Si-Woo Kim at 50/1 and they go on to win this tournament, which is something any of those golfers may end up doing as the event is that open and hard to call this year!
