In golf plays...
I made a couple top 5 and top 10 finishes...
Does top 5 include 5th place or is that a push?
Also what happens in a tie? As in multiple players have the same score in 5th place...
Most books have a "dead heat rule". The only one I can think of that does not is Bovada. At Bovada, if you bet $100 on a golfer at even money that he finishes in the top 10, and there is a 3 way tie for 10th, you win $100.
As with most books, the dead heat rule would divide those winnings by 3 since 3 people tied. So you would only win $33.33 instead of $100.
You want a handicapping tip? Spend as much time getting a good number as you do researching games. Depositing/withdrawing/depositing/withdrawing is a bitch, but I guarantee you will lose less, or win more. I can't guarantee that for any other piece of advice

Just re-read the dead heat rules. I had it totally wrong, sorry. Let's say you have $100 at 2/1 and two players tie for 10th place. you stake ($100) is cut in half. so $50 (half your stake) is paid to you at 2/1, a $100 win. The other $50 is considered a loss. So instead of a $100 bet paying 2/1 for a payout of $300, you get a payout of only $150.
