Henrik Stenson was at the top of the betting boards all week at the Wyndham Championship.

Stenson capped off a one-shot win at 12/1 by holding off a charging Ollie Schniederjans, who was a fairly popular pick in the betting world at 80/1.

Ollie showed on Sunday that he’ll eventually breakthrough on the PGA tour after shooting a bogey-free 64 and making Stenson play nearly perfect down the stretch to come out ahead.

Looking back on the bets this week, it couldn’t have gone worse trying to find a winner with no one finishing in the top 15. JJ Spaun bailed us out though with a final round 63 to tie for 16th and cash the top 20 bet at 7/1.

This is a situation in golf betting where picking your book is important. As mentioned before, Bovada pays out all placing bets in full, while others will use dead heat rules. Using the Spaun bet as an example, eight players tied for 16th, but most books only pay to 20 places with the dead heat. So in this spot at other books, the Spaun win would have only been a 5/8ths payout. That’s a difference of three units at the 7/1 price. My basic rule on these bets is to place them on Bovada unless I’m getting double the odds on another book to cancel out the losses of the dead heat chop.

Overall for the week, the props and matchups turned a profit to cancel out the loss on the future bets.
