British Open Odds & Picks

British Open Favorite Pick: Brooks Koepka +985

Brooks Koepka has torn it up in the major tournaments this year. At the Masters, he finished second to Tiger Woods. He won the PGA Championship after jumping out to a huge first-round lead. Koepka shot a 63 first round and a 65 second round. He pretty much coasted and was in no danger of losing even though he blasted a 74 on Sunday. Koepka also finished second at the U.S. Open. He finished 10-under, 3 strokes off winner Gary Woodland.

Because Koepka has played so well in the first three majors of the year, it makes sense why he’d offer favorite’s odds to win the British Open. Koepka should be the favorite, but he hasn’t hit the ball particularly well since the second place finish at the U.S. Open.

Brooks struggled at the Travelers Championship, finishing at even par and in fifty-seventh place. He struggled again at the 3M Open in early July. Koepka shot a -6 and finished in sixty-fifth place. Although he should be favored, his odds are much to low for a wager. It makes sense to pass on backing Koepka.   

British Open Smart Pick: Dustin Johnson+1425

Johnson hasn’t played competitively since the Rocket Mortgage Classic in late June. One of the reasons is because he wants to do his best at the British Open. Johnson didn’t shoot well at the U.S. Open and finished thirty-fifth. He finished second at the PGA Championship, though. He also finished second at the Masters.

DJ wants to make sure he picks up at least some of the Top 5 prize money at Royal Portrush. That’s why he’s been practicing shots instead of playing in tournaments. It could pay off for Johnson. When he’s on his game, he’s one of the top 3 players in the world. He’s also offering excellent odds.

British Open Long Shot Pick: Louis Oosthuizen +4500

Oosthuizen won’t always show up with hot sticks. In fact, more often than not, he finishes thirtieth or worst. However, at the last major tournament, the U.S. Open, Oosthuizen finished seventh. Not only that, but he excels over European courses. His only major victory was the 2010 British Open.

Oosthuizen must be consistent if he hopes to win The Open Championship this year. If he gets off to a hot start and then keeps his composure, he could pull off the upset.
