Spieth is at 9/4 at Bovada on the updated British Open odds after shooting a 66 in the third round on Sunday to sit at 11-under for the tournament.

Adam Scott, also at 9-under for the tournament, is a bit higher on the updated odds list at 16/1.

Sergio Garcia and Zach Johnson, at 9-under as well, are at 22/1 and 33/1 on the updated odds list, with Dustin Johnson now at 40/1 after he shot a round of 75 on Sunday to fall to 7-under for the event. Dustin Johnson had been the 15/8 favorite to win the tournament heading into the third round.

Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy currently combine to hold all four major golf titles, so it's no surprise they're the favorites on the odds to win the British Open at St. Andrews in July.

McIlroy won the British Open last year by two strokes over both Rickie Fowler and Sergio Garcia, then followed that up with a win at the PGA Championship. McIlroy also finished fourth at the Masters this spring, then tied for ninth at the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay.

Those two tournaments were both won by Spieth, who followed up his Masters victory with a one-stroke win over Dustin Johnson and Louis Oosthuizen in the U.S. Open. Spieth has played the British Open twice in his career, finishing tied for 44th place in 2013 and tied for 36th place last year.

And the oddsmakers at Bovada have Spieth set behind McIlroy on their early odds to win the 2015 British Open, which runs from July 16-19 in Scotland. McIlroy is the 4/1 favorite and Spieth is the 6/1 second favorite on those golf betting lines.

Johnson is then at 12/1 on those British Open odds, with Justin Rose at 16/1, Adam Scott and Oosthuizen at 20/1, Henrik Stenson at 22/1, Fowler and Garcia joining Phil Mickelson, Jason Day, and Martin Kaymer at 25/1, and Tiger Woods back at 28/1.
