Let's Bet on the Open Championship
The last Major of the year is this week which means, since we’re in the UK, we need to check the betting odds. If you’re in the UK and you don’t bet, you’re odd. The Open or as some non-golfers call it the British Open is my favorite event all year. I wake up early, sit in peace and enjoy the candid splendor the R&A’s crowning achievement.
Get your money up and lets gamble people (*note* I don’t have any scientific basis for my picks…therefore when you lose your money because of my predictions, it’s your own damn fault)
Brooks Koepka 8-1Odds are irrelevant here because he wins everything.
Rory McIlroy 8-1Probably going to MC, finish DFL or Win. Tough playing your “hometown” course during a major. Has a ton of pressure and a ton of eyes on him.
Dustin Johnson 12-1 DJ and the Open go together like…something that doesn’t go together well.
Jon Rahm 14-1 I would take the 14-1 odds that he destroys numerous clubs over winning the Open.
Tiger Woods 16-1 These are great numbers. Take this bet and when he doesn’t win, console yourself with the fact that instead of going over to Northern Ireland to acclimate his body to the time change, Tiger woke up at 1am in Florida and made strange videos.
Justin Rose 20-1 Great odds for a great ballstriker.
Francesco Molinari 20-1 If anyone can go back to back Frankie can. Playing a bit under the radar which makes him dangerous. Truly unflappable.
Rickie Fowler 25-1 Save your money, Rickie is not going to win, which means now he will. You’re welcome Rickie.
Xander Schauffele 25-1Sounds like a British name.
Tommy Fleetwood 25-1 The UK media darling might be able to pull it off. If he doesn’t he still has the most intimidating caddie on the Euro Tour.
Jordan Spieth 30-1GO GET THAT…Friday night plane ticket back home. Not making the cut.
Justin Thomas 30-1At least he’ll look good.
Adam Scott 30-1Will not win because he’ll probably decide to wear pants with pleats….excuse me, sorry…TROUSERS.
Louis Oosthuizen 30-1Better at riding tractors.
Bryson DeCahmbeau 30-1Will be completely lost when he realizes the UK works on the metric system.
Jason Day 40-1Will probably hurt his back ordering Fish and Chips.
Gary Woodland 50-1Reigning U.S Open champ might be able to find some magic across the pond and at 50-1 is worth throwing some coin on.
Sergio Garcia 60-1Sergio is hated by the golf gods, therefore he will never win again.
Tony Finau 60-1A Tongan, from Morman Utah, winning the OPEN Championship. Story writes itself.
Patrick Reed 60-1Only man hated more by the golf gods than Sergio. Even the UK fans won’t cheer for a good shot by him.
The field-The most unpredictable Major because of the nature of the courses could see the rest of the field coming “out of nowhere” which we all know is B.S because any of these guys could win any given week.
Put my money on Brooks with a back door top 10 for Tiger. Also, Kevin Kisner will probably win. Enjoy the open.
