Bookmaker Review: BetVictor
BetVictor Sportsbook is a cracking online bookmaker when it comes to golf betting. Their golf tournament coverage is exceptional and their player prices are very competitive, especially if you time your bet or follow particular golfers. BetVictor may focus their advertising on their ‘Best Premier League odds, most often’ boast, but serious and occasional golf punters alike will always find them a destination online bookmaker simply on the basis that they are consistently good.
Victor Chandler as once was, used to be seen as the quintessential turf accountant for professionals and that ethos can still be seen today across BetVictor’s digital sportsbook. They offer a no-nonsense approach to sports and golf betting which is packed full of value. On top of that they are very accommodating when it comes to taking larger stake bets – the same can’t be said for many of BetVictor’s competitors.

A large number of Golf Betting System readers use BetVictor as part of their bookmaker portfolio – here’s what some of them had to say about BetVictor with a specific slant on their golf betting odds, promotions and overall offering. For more bookmaker reviews click here.
“BetVictor will always have a special place in my heart thanks to a successful prize £25 bet. I won it just as I was waiting for prices on event specialist Stephen Gallacher in Dubai and was expecting about 25-1. When their 45-1 popped up I was all over it like a rash, turned £12.50 e/w into about £700 when he of course won as expected. I wished of course in hindsight that I had done the full £25 on the nose, but don’t know if my heart could have taken the rollercoaster final round!! Their golf odds often throw up such gems. They don’t have quite as many Facebook and Twitter competitions as many of their social media rivals, but it’s worth keeping Victor on side. ” Reviewed by KB, Dec 2014. Rating: 4/5
“BetVictor is a site I like not only for golf but for other sports as well. They are always very competitive with their prices and when I’ve had to speak to customer services I’ve always found them to be very helpful. Recently they’ve started offering markets without the favourite as well. They also offer a wide range of money back specials/Free bets across their sports book.” Reviewed by TB, Dec 2014. Rating: 4/5
“Good reliable bookmaker, doesnt have the depth of the markets. I use on a regular basis but needs to expand tours & markets.” Reviewed by JR, Dec 2014. Rating: 3/5
“Usually pretty competitive on prices, I use them when there is funds in the account and they are best price on the golfer I need to back. Can usually fund the golf bets by winning in their instabet enhanced prices. Tend to match the extra place with other bookies.” Reviewed by DP, Dec 2014. Rating: 3/5

BetVictor Golf Betting Coverage
There’s no doubt that BetVictor provides fantastic golf coverage and a real depth of markets. BetVictor covers all Major Championships, World Golf Championships, PGA Tour and European Tour tournaments. Unlike plenty of other online bookmakers, BetVictor also provides Outright Markets across the secondary level of professional golf covering the Asian, OneAsia, Australasia, Japan Golf, Korean, South American, Sunshine Tours and in the United States the LPGA, Champions Tour and web.com Tour events. Their coverage of the secondary level is bettered by other bookmakers such as Skybet who offer extended markets but their depth of markets across the Main Tours is of a decent standard.
Markets for the main Tour tournaments are always up early on a Monday for the early birds and Outright Market punters will like the prices on offer with BetVictor, especially in the hours leading up to the tournament start. Late Thursday backers on the PGA Tour will often find the market favourites best-priced at BetVictor.
BetVictor also offer a good number of markets for the main Tour events. Look out for their without the favourite / McIlroy markets. They also offer totally unique Missed Cut Insurance across the whole field within the Outright Market. The idea here is that you take a slight cut on your player odds (naturally it’s 25% for long prices and circa 10% for the favourites) but stakes are refunded, and even better they are refunded in cash, not free bets if they miss the cut. Top 20 punters will also like BetVictor who offer competitive prices across the field.
Typical Markets include Outright Betting, Top 5, Top 10, Top 20, 1st Round Leader, 2/3 Balls, Match Betting, Enhanced Double Chances, Treble Chance, Tournament Group Betting, Top American/European/Scottish/Australian/Asian/Korean, Top Golden Oldie (+40), Top Young Gun, Age of Winner, Hole in One, Forecasts and Dual Forecasts.

BetVictor Golf Betting Odds
As you would expect, we keep as close as we can to player odds here at Golf Betting System. BetVictor specialise on offering the best prices on the most popular players. You rarely find market leading prices with BetVictor on the longer priced players, but sub 100/1 is where they are stand-out. Look out for the market favourites up to 50/1 to be best price at BetVictor on Thursday mornings prior to the PGA Tour tee-off.
BetVictor Golf Each-Way Places
One thing’s for sure, you will get extended each-way places for the Major Championships, but it’s virtually impossible to forecast how many!
