With additional each-way places available from most bookies, the scope for grabbing a piece of the each-way action with a 3-figure chance this week is as good as ever, and there’s plenty of value to be found if you dig deep enough into the market at Los Angeles Country Club.
Last year’s US Open was a case in point that longer-priced players can place, or occasionally win, at the Majors. Adam Hadwin and Denny McCarthy tied for 7th last year, with the pair available at between 150/1 to 250/1 depending on how many each-way places you were happy to take; similarly Joel Dahmen tied for 10th, rewarding those with the foresight to back the likeable 35 year-old with maximum place terms at around 200/1.
As ever, the each-way terms available from some bookmakers this week make for an interesting dilemma – do you stick rigidly to fairly standard each-way place options and grab a top price on an outsider, or do you accept a reduced price in exchange for more favourable terms?
Personally I’ve opted for a blend of extended places and strong prices, with two of my selections with the bet365’s 8 places market and the other with William Hill’s 10 places market. Both bookmakers are consistently strong when it comes to a combination of odds and place terms each and every week, so if you don’t currently use either or both bookies then their new customer offers are detailed below:
