Chronicles of a Pro Bettor: Bryson Pumps It up as Rory Weakens

In this week’s Chronicles of a Pro Bettor Series, we recap last week’s epic U.S. Open, with its effect on the futures market on professional golf’s next major, the Open Championship in three weeks’ time and the 2025 Masters. 

Our pro bettor also brings further knowledge of betting for a profit, discussing how he deals with a poor run of results or a bad beat and the human emotions they provoke.

Bryson Pumps It up as Rory Weakens

LIV golfer Bryson DeChambeau (+2200) won his second U.S. Open after a breath-taking duel with Rory McIlroy (+1100).

Once again, the top of the market dominated a major championship and in running McIlroy traded at (-1000) with three holes to play, but the Northern Irishman choked away two small putts, leaving the door ajar for the popular DeChambeau to barge through.

Bryson’s popularity and interactions with the fans during and after each day’s play will live long in the memory. The one below, he shared with a young fan late on Sunday when in contention was very special.

How the Markets Reacted

The result evoked reactions from the betting market for next month’s Open Championship, with McIlroy staying the same at +800 while Dechambeau shortened up markedly to +1200.

You will not be surprised to hear we are betting neither at those prices and we will continue to monitor those markets in the forthcoming weeks.

Have the Bookies Forgotten About the Masters for Bryson?

It was noticeable that Bryson DeChambeau was still priced at +1600 with BetOnline, one of the top offshore betting sites, for the 2025 Masters Tournament, many firms shortened to (+1200) so that will be strong CLV if you are happy tying the money up until April next year.

The thirty-year-old Californian proved this year at Augusta National that he is getting to grips with the iconic track. The improvement in DeChambeau’s game in major championships is palpable this year and it will not surprise me if he goes off below (+1000) next year and second favourite to defending champion Scottie Scheffler at Augusta

How Do You Deal With Bad Runs?

Like a professional sportsman, as a pro bettor, I have endured many poor runs of results and disappointments littered with bad beats, but they never get any easier to digest. Last week, losing from a winning position for bettors when Sebastian Soderberg lost the Scandinavian Mixed Masters after leading by eight shots going into the final round.

Luckily, I was not on, but a few friends and fellow sharps had bet Soderberg, and it is a hell of a bad beat to deal with.

Grow a Thick Skin to Results, Good or Bad!

As a pro bettor, you build up a hard skin and immunity to results regardless of whether they are good or bad, and the best way to do so is to keep in the present, something that is easier said than done.

For example, if you endured the bad beat of Soderberg losing, don’t immediately jump back on the horse and start betting again because your emotions will be hurt with disappointment.

The best most effective bets with CLV that create profit and ROI are found when keeping perspective allowing you to scrutinize the dynamics on the day or the week in question.

Never Bet when Feeling Emotional

You cannot expect to keep perspective when feeling low after a brutal loss, after all, we are only human. So I suggest when you have those bad days, switch off the coverage and opt for some downtime or relaxation.

That can mean different things for people, for some it might be having a beer or a bottle of wine, for others it might be taking the dog for a long walk. Whatever it is, take some time out for the rest of the day and have a good night’s sleep because as my mum has always said, “everything seems better in the morning!”.

Equally, these same methods of managing our emotions apply to the huge rush of a big win! Instead of playing the rush, soak it up, enjoying being correct with your research, and if it’s a bigger sum of money won than you’re used to, why not treat yourself or someone important?

What’s Coming Next Week?

Next week, I will take an early look for the first time into the upcoming NFL season, discussing my thoughts and strategy with maybe a bet or two!

There are a couple of franchises that I believe are better than their prices and I will be looking at the best options for our wagers.
