Take A Look At What's Happening At The British Open Odds

Take A Look At What's Happening At The British Open Odds

The 2015 British Open is scheduled to begin on Thursday, July 16, and end on Sunday, July 19. at the historic St. Andrews golf course in Scotland, and the best golfers in the world are expected to tee off at the event. 

Going into the tournament, defending champion Rory McIlroy, was the favorite to win the tournament, but news broke that he ruptured a ligament in his ankle while playing soccer over the weekend, and it has changed the British Open odds.

With McIlroy’s injury, Jordan Spieth now has the best odds to win the British Open, and since he won both the Masters and the U.S. Open this year, you really can’t argue with him going into the tournament with the best odds. In addition to the two majors that he won, Spieth has also won two other tournaments this year, and in the 18 tournaments he has played in this year, he finished in the top 10, 11 times. Spieth’s odds of winning the British Open is currently 5-1.

Despite the injury to his ankle, Rory McIlroy has the second best odds to win the British Open. This is because he has played better or as well as anyone not named Spieth. McIlroy has only entered eight PGA Tour events this season, but he has six top 10 finishes, including a 9th place finish at the U.S. Open, and a 4th place finish at the Masters, to go along with two wins. His odds to win the tournament is currently 9-1.

Dustin Johnson, who barely missed out on a chance to win his first major tournament at the U.S. Open, will be looking to put the disappointment behind him, as he goes into the British Open. He has played well at the British Open in the past, and came close to winning it in 2011, but finished second. So far this year, he has played well, with one win and seven top 10 finishes in 14 events, but he will have to be even better, in order to give himself a chance to win this tournament. His odds to win the tournament is currently 12-1.

Justin Rose is currently having a good season, but it has been overshadowed by the year that Jordan Spieth is currently having. In the 13 events he has played in this year, he has one win and four top 10 finishes. He finished 2nd at the Masters behind Spieth, but struggled at the U.S. Open, finishing 27th. The 2013 U.S. Open champion hasn’t had a lot of success at the British Open in recent years, his best finish at the event is a 4th place finish in 1998, and he will be trying to end the drought with a win at St. Andrews this year. His odds of winning the tournament is currently 16-1.

Adam Scott struggled earlier in the season, but seems to have found his game again, thanks to the return of his caddie Steve Williams. He finished 4th at the U.S. Open, and he will be trying to build on that success at St. Andrews. His odds of winning the tournament is currently 18-1.

British Open Predictions.

Jordan Spieth’s great play this season and Rory McIlroy’s injury prior to the start of the tournament, make this year’s British Open predictions easier. This is because most bettors were torn between the defending champion and the winner of the year’s first two majors. Now that McIlroy’s game is likely going to be affected by the injury, a lot of people will switch their pick to Spieth.

My Pick: When it comes to most sporting events, I believe in picking the player or team that is playing at their best, and in this situation, Jordan Spieth is playing the best golf in the world right now, so I’m picking him to win the 2015 British Open.

British Open History.

Rory McIlroy is the defending British Open champion, but he is one of many golfers that have only won the event once. Since the tournament began, only 27 golfers have been able to win it twice, the list is led by Harry Vardon, who won the event a record six times. In the modern era, Tom Watson was able to win it five times, followed by Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Seve Ballesteros, Nick Faldo, and Tiger Woods, who were able to win it three times apiece.
