2017 British Open odds: Dustin Johnson leads a margin during Royal Birkdale

Having missed his final dual cuts, I’m not certain Dustin Johnson should be a favorite for The Open Championship this week during Royal Birkdale, yet he does reason that title. And if not Johnson, afterwards who? The No. 1 golfer in a universe leads a organisation of tip players scuffling into this event. Rory McIlroy has missed 3 of 4 cuts. Jason Day has missed a cut during his final dual events. Defending champion Henrik Stenson has missed a cut during 4 of his final 9 events as well.

There are golfers that are playing well, yet this week’s vital positively does not have a same feel that Augusta National and a Masters did behind in Apr when it felt like everybody was during a tip of their game. That said, there are some fascinating sleepers with prolonged contingency that are carrying good seasons and could appropriate vital No. 1.

Let’s take a demeanour during a numbers, according to Bovada.

The favorites

  • Dustin Johnson: 12-1
  • Jordan Spieth: 14-1
  • Rickie Fowler: 14-1

If we had to be my life on somebody here, it would be Spieth during 14-1 even yet I’m substantially going to finish adult picking Fowler this week. we don’t like Johnson during 12-1 during all. Also, I’m not certain how distant behind this goes, yet we have a tough time remembering a favorite who didn’t have singular series (i.e. 9-1 or better) odds. 

The other favorites

  • Jon Rahm: 16-1
  • Sergio Garcia: 16-1
  • Justin Rose: 18-1
  • Rory McIlroy: 18-1
  • Hideki Matsuyama: 20-1
  • Tommy Fleetwood: 20-1

I adore Fleetwood, yet we don’t like him here during 20-1. When is a final time we could get McIlroy during 18-1? That’s a superb series to seize him during notwithstanding a fact that he’s missed those 3 of 4 cuts. Garcia is a play here, though. He has 10 (!) tip 10s in his story during this tournament, and 16-1 is perfect. Matsuyama is value a flier, too.

The border favorites

  • Henrik Stenson: 25-1
  • Adam Scott: 28-1
  • Brooks Koepka: 33-1
  • Jason Day: 33-1
  • Paul Casey: 33-1

I’m not unequivocally in adore with anyone here, yet we theory I’d go Scott or Casey if we had to collect somebody out of this group. Scott has 4 tip 10s in his final 5 seasons, and Casey is on a flattering decent number.

The not-quite sleepers

  • Alex Noren: 40-1
  • Louis Oosthuizen: 40-1
  • Phil Mickelson: 40-1
  • Branden Grace: 45-1
  • Marc Leishman: 45-1
  • Justin Thomas: 50-1
  • Matt Kuchar: 50-1
  • Thomas Pieters: 50-1

How about a fact that Phil Mickelson has dual top-two finishes in a final 4 Opens, and he’s 40-1 this week? we adore him, Leishman and Pieters from this group. Leishman is a big-game hunter (two tip fives in his final 3 Opens), and Pieters has it all (he finished T30 in his initial Open final year).

The sleepers

  • Padraig Harrington: 55-1
  • Rafael Cabrera-Bello: 55-1
  • Patrick Reed: 66-1
  • Shane Lowry: 66-1
  • Charl Schwartzel: 70-1
  • Roberto Castro: 70-1
  • Brandt Snedeker: 75-1
  • Daniel Berger: 75-1

Harrington is a fun, nauseating play, yet we eventually don’t consider he’ll cause in this week. Snedeker could be disreputable if a breeze blows since his putting can rescue him. Berger, Lowry and Cabrera-Bello are all decent to plain bets. 

If we puncture even deeper, we can find some improved wagers than these. Lee Westwood (80-1), Tyrrell Hatton (100-1), Francesco Molinari (100-1), J.B. Holmes (125-1), Tony Finau (125-1) and Anirban Lahiri (200-1) are all delectable.
