Open Championship 2017 odds: Dustin Johnson is a favorite during Royal Birkdale

Three of a biggest favorites for a British Open in a month are only dual weeks private from blank a cut during a final major. Dustin Johnson, Jason Day and Rory McIlroy are all heavyweights when it comes to wagering on a third vital during Royal Birkdale. None of them played a weekend during a U.S. Open during Erin Hills.

They all have a good story during this event, though. McIlroy has won it, Johnson has scarcely won it mixed times and Day has never missed a cut. Let’s take a demeanour during where they lay on a contingency piece with only 3 tournaments between now and a tournament.

The favorites

  • Dustin Johnson: 8-1
  • Rory McIlroy: 10-1
  • Jordan Spieth: 11-1

If I’m betting here, I’d go with Spieth — mostly since he has a many auspicious contingency for bettors though also since he’s personification a best of a 3 right now. He’s not as terrifying during his best as McIlroy and Johnson, though he’ll be means to lift and lift his approach around Birkdale as good as anyone.

Johnson has finished in a tip 15 in 5 of a final 7 years.

The other favorites

  • Jason Day: 16-1
  • Sergio Garcia: 16-1
  • Rickie Fowler: 18-1
  • Henrik Stenson: 20-1
  • Hideki Matsuyama: 20-1
  • Justin Rose: 20-1

Fowler and Garcia are unequivocally juicy during those numbers. we don’t unequivocally adore anybody else. 

The border favorites

  • Jon Rahm: 28-1
  • Brooks Koepka: 28-1
  • Adam Scott: 30-1
  • Alex Noren: 33-1
  • Tommy Fleetwood: 33-1
  • Justin Thomas: 35-1
  • Phil Mickelson: 35-1
  • Thomas Pieters: 35-1
  • Paul Casey: 35-1

I consider we competence adore Fleetwood during 33-1 a small bit too most here. Pieters is fun as well, though we adore a approach Fleetwood is playing. 

The sleepers

  • Branden Grace: 40-1
  • Lee Westwood: 50-1
  • Louis Oosthuizen: 50-1
  • Tyrrell Hatton: 50-1
  • Patrick Reed: 50-1

Grace, Westwood, Oosthuizen and Hatton are all super fun sleepers, generally during those numbers above. All solely Grace have contended for this contest in a final few years, and all substantially will again. It would be so cold to see Westwood win it in England.
