With The Barclays only two days away, LowVig.com is the only Major Online Sportsbook Offering Special Reduced Juice Matchups for the First FedEx Cup Playoff Event of the Season.
Online PR News – 22-August-2012 – Panama, City – The PGA TOUR playoffs for the FedEx Cup kick off this week with The Barclays at Bethpage State Park Black Course on Long Island, New York. The first of four playoff events, The Barclays is scheduled to begin on Thursday, August 23rd; but as of yet, the popular reduced juice wagering site, LowVig.com, is one of the only major sportsbooks offering matchup lines on this tournament. True to its "Simply Better Value" motto, LowVig is offering a 16 cent line on almost every matchup, while traditional books have lines starting at 20 cents.
Many sports betting sites have yet to post lines for The Barclays and others are only listing odds to win. Most wagering enthusiasts, however, prefer golf matchups to outright money line bets because it is easier to predict one player's performance against another's than it is to pick a tournament winner. In addition, by spreading his money across many matchups, a savvy player can turn a profit even if his percentage of wins only narrowly outweighs his losses. The lower the juice, the more money a bettor stands to make. For example, if someone were to wager $200 on all 25 matchups in the upcoming Barclays tournament at an average price of -108, and 56% of those wagers resulted in wins, the person would make $424, assuming all the players teed off If the average price per wager were a standard -110, on the other hand, that same person would only be up $380. This is why LowVig's reduced juice golf matchup odds are attractive to both professional gamblers and amateur wagering enthusiasts alike.
Perhaps the most exciting Barclays matchup at LowVig.com pits golf Legend Tiger Woods against the man currently ranked #1 in the World, Rory McIlroy. 23 year old McIlroy, who is a -115 favorite against Woods (-101), is coming off a record breaking 8 stroke victory at the PGA Championship earlier this month, after an equally impressive eight stroke win at the 2011 U.S. Open. McIlroy is ranked #2 on Golf Club Management Magazine's 2012 Golf Power List and is #1 on PGATour.com's power rankings for The Barclays 2012.
Veteran Woods, on the other hand is currently #3 in the world with 14 majors under his belt. This year, he is first in adjusted scoring, (with McIlroy in second place), and fourth in total driving with six top tens and three Tour wins. Woods won the 2002 U.S. Open at the Bethpage Black, a monstrous 7468 yard, par 71 course that was also the scene of Lucas Glover's, rather soggy 2009 U.S. Open Victory. Changes made to the course since that last major event include a new tee on the 13th hole as well as a longer 7th that now plays as a par 5, rather than a par 4.
Another man who is no stranger to Bethpage Black is Bubba Watson, who is listed at -106 against favorite Steve Stricker (-110). Watson was 8th going into the final round of the 2009 U.S. Open and finished 18th overall. He has had 12 top 20s this year including a win at the Masters and is second in greens hit as well as ninth in adjusted scoring; putting him in the #2 spot on the PGATour.com's power rankings for the upcoming Barclays event. His opponent, Steve Stricker, has had 7 top tens in only 15 starts this season, and won the Barclays back in 2007 at Westchester, coming in second in 2009 at Liberty National and third in 2010 at Ridgewood. Stricker is currently ranked #10 in the world, while Watson is #7.

The company offers a cost saving guarantee because LowVig prefers to return as much value possible to each individual bettor via the rebate and reduced juice model rather than through lower ROI methods, such as expensive advertising campaigns, affiliate deals, or costly promotions; thereby preferring organic growth through word of mouth advertising from their rapidly increasing client base.
