British Open Best Odds

Live on Sky Sports: Thu – Sun 06:30: Bet at the best prices at The Open Championship 2022 | Live Golf Scores | Free Bets

Rory McIlroy has not won a major title since 2014, although that hasn’t stopped the bookmakers making him favourite to win the 2022 Open Championship. The Northern Irishman is a 9/1 chance with Coral to end his drought and the 2014 Open champion looks to be in tremendous form.

However, some will be looking to back a golfer at a bigger price and it will be interesting to see how world number one Scottie Scheffler fares, with the American massively inexperienced when it comes to playing British links courses although he could make an impact.

The Masters champion is a 14/1 chance with bet365 and did tie eighth in the 2021 Open Championship, with fellow American Justin Thomas trading at a slightly bigger 16/1 with Boylesports and this is another player who has bagged a major in 2022 and will therefore go to St Andrews full of confidence.

Jon Rahm broke his major duck when winning the 2021 US Open before tying third in the Open Championship further down the line, with the Spaniard tying twelfth in the 2022 US Open recently and he could also be one on the each-way shortlist considering that the bookies will be creating so many places.

Matt Fitzpatrick is sure to receive a rapturous reception at this iconic course after the Englishman produced the goods in the US Open, with Betfred chalking up 20/1 about the Yorkshireman making it consecutive major titles and many will be liking those sort of odds about a player bouncing with confidence.

Collin Morikawa is the reigning champion after triumphing in the 2021 Open Championship when scoring -15 at Royal St George’s, with BetVictor chalking up 20/1 that the American retaining his crown and it’s clear that he’s one of the players who adjusts well to the links conditions.

Jordan Spieth is another American who has demonstrated the ability to win the Claret Jug, with William Hill offering 22/1 that the Texan repeats his Open Championship in 2017 which could be a decent shout considering that he was able to finish second behind Morikawa twelve months ago.

If you’re looking for bigger odds, then it’s possible that we’ll see Justin Rose competing at the top end of the leaderboard and Ladbrokes chalk up 50/1 that the Englishman wins at a course which he loves, with Max Homa available at 100/1 with Paddy Power and this is someone who will surely be in the winners’ enclosure at some point in majors.

Sergio Garcia is 66/1 with Boylesports and will hope to improve on his tied nineteenth finish at Royal St George’s last year, while we also think that Louis Oosthuizen could be a spot of value considering that the South African often seems to perform well in the Open Championship.

Betfair have betting odds of 40/1 that the 2010 Open champion manages to lift the Claret Jug for a second time, with Oosthuizen having tied second in 2015 although the player has been out of form this year.
