2017 British Open Odds & Betting Preview

With the U.S. Open in the books, the attention of the professional golfing world now shifts across the pond to the Royal Birkdale Golf Club in Southport, England for the 2017 British Open.

When it comes to odds lists, the No. 1 golfer in the world leads the way. Dustin Johnson is the +800 favorite to claim the Claret Jug, with Rory McIlroy (+1000), Jordan Spieth (+1200), Jason Day (+1400), Sergio Garcia (+1600), Rickie Fowler (+1600), Henrik Stenson (+1800), Hideki Matsuyama (+2000), Jon Rahm (+2200) and Justin Rose (+2200) comprising the rest of the top 10.

Often labeled simply “The Open,” this year’s edition will be in tough to top the final-day showdown between Stenson and Phil Mickelson a year ago. Stenson eventually staved off a valiant effort from the American to win his first major in impressive fashion at the renowned Royal Troon.

This is the ninth time the major has been held at Royal Birkdale. The most recent staging there was in 2008 when Padraig Harrington won his second consecutive Open. Unlike Erin Hills, the setting for the U.S. Open, the course features extremely tight fairways with a litany of sand dunes around the greens, so accuracy is beyond important at the par-70, 7,156-yard venue. Camilo Villegas posted the best score in 2008 in the form of a 5-under 65.

The 146th British Open will be held on July 20-23. Here’s a look at the shop’s full list of odds.
