The Open Championship Odds

The Open Championship Odds

The 144th Open Championship is going to be taking place at the historic St. Andrews golf course in Scotland, and since it is the third major of the year, the best golfers in the world are going to be in attendance. Defending champion Rory McIlroy, and Jordan Spieth, the winner of the first two majors of the year, are expected to be the top contenders, so we will take a look at the other contenders with a look at the Open Championship odds.

Contenders.

Rory McIlroy.

As previously mentioned, Rory McIlroy, who is the top ranked golfer in the world, will be the favorite heading into the Open Championship 2015, because he is the defending British Open champion. He is still looking for his first win at a major this season, but he played well in the first two major tournaments of the year, finishing 9th at the U.S. Open, and 4th at the Masters. His odds to win the Open Championship are 4-1.

Jordan Spieth.

Spieth has taken the golf world by storm this year, winning both the Masters and the U.S. Open, and he will be one step closer to winning all four major tournaments in one year, which will be very impressive, if the 21 year old can pull it off. Spieth has made things look easy this year, with 11 top 10 finishes in 18 events, to go with four wins, and it will be difficult for anyone to defeat him at the British Open. His odds for the tournament are 6-1.

Dustin Johnson.

Johnson came close to defeating Spieth at the U.S. Open, but missed a couple of putts he would normally make, costing him a chance to win his first major tournament. He is one of the top contenders at the Open Championship, but he will have to put the disappointment of the U.S. Open behind him, if he intends to win this tournament. His odds of winning the British Open is 12-1.

Justin Rose.

Rose finished 2nd at the Masters, and went into the U.S. Open with a lot of expectations, but he was unable to make a run at the tournament, and finished 27th. He will be trying to turn things around with a win at the Open Championship, giving him his second major tournament victory, but he will need to be at his best and hope for some luck, because his best finish at the British Open is 4th in 1998. His odds to win are 16-1.

Adam Scott.

Adam Scott’s game struggled when he parted ways with caddie Steve Williams, who had decided to retire, but he convinced Williams to return on a part time basis, and the difference in his game was quite clear. Scott finished 4th at the U.S. Open, and will be hoping his game improves enough to help him win the British Open. His odds for the tournament are 20-1.

The Open Championship betting odds favor Rory McIlroy or Jason Spieth to win the tournament, because their odds are so close, and the next best person isn’t very close. McIlroy is the defending champion, which rightfully makes him the favorite, but Jordan Spieth has been playing on another level this season, especially in major tournaments, I don’t see anybody defeating him at the British Open.
