British Open 2019 Odds and Picks

Let’s start with the Vegas Odds British Open. The outright market is all to do with who is going to win the tournament, so you simply need to pick one of the top golfers who is in with a chance.

There are a number of top golfers in this list, but the clear standout is Rory McIlroy who will get to play the British Open in his home country for the first time. Here are the top ten chances according to some of the leading sportsbooks:

Player Sports Interaction Betway Spin Sports
Rory McIlroy 9.00 9.00 9.00
Brooks Koepka 10.00 11.00 11.00
Dustin Johnson 15.00 15.00 15.00
Jon Rahm 15.00 15.00 15.00
Tiger Woods 17.00 17.00 17.00
Justin Rose 19.00 21.00 21.00
Francesco Molinari 23.00 23.00 21.00
Xander Schauffele 23.00 23.00 26.00
Tommy Fleetwood 26.00 26.00 26.00
Justin Thomas 26.00 29.00 29.00

British Open Outright Prediction

Francesco Molinari may be an outsider, but he is the defending champion and really gets up for the tour event that is almost in his backyard.

The Italian will need to make some serious history to win the trophy – there hasn’t been a back-to-back winner since Tiger Woods in 2005/2006.

It’s an outsider bet, but it’s definitely worth the gamble at $26. $100 on this bet would fetch you a cool $2600

British Open Odds To Make The Cut

The cut can be tricky to predict at a golfing major, although the normal rule is that only the top half of the participants will make it through to the final two rounds. 

The top golfers are available at short odds to make the cut. For example, Rory McIlroy is the favourite to win the championship and starts at just 1.12 to make the cut. 

The odds range from McIlroy at 1.12 up to the lowest chances at 2.00, so there isn’t too much value here – so we’ve picked some outside chances that we think will have a good chance of reaching the final weekend.

British Open Odds To Make The Cut Picks

The outsider that comes to mind when looking at the odds is Phil Mickelson, who is available through Betway at odds of 1.62 to make the cut. We think Phil is almost certain, so the odds are quite good here.

Another name that is surprisingly low on the list is Australia’s Cameron Smith. He is at 1.72 to make the cut and has been reasonably consistent this season. It’s a good chance.

British Open Top 20 Finish

This market is self-explanatory – simply pick a golfer that you think will finish in the top-20 at Royal Portrush.

Unlike the Odds to Make the Cut market, there is some decent value in placing a bet here, according to the Las Vegas betting odds British Open.

British Open Top 20 Picks

Once again, you will most likely want to look at the outsiders in this market, although there is some real value on the top chances. Again, Rory McIlroy is the favourite, although he is at 1.44 to finish in the top 20, which shows the value in this market. 

Our pick for the Claret Jug, Francesco Molinari is at odds of 2.10 in this market, while Jason Day, who has been very consistent recently, is at odds of 2.62. They are two players that we think will make the top 20 at this year’s event.

British Open Race Winning Margin

The Race Winning Margin, or Winning Margin market, is all about predicting what the gap will be between the winner and the next-best golfer. Below are the odds:

Margin Odds
1 Stroke 3.50
2 Strokes 4.50
3 Strokes 6.00
4 Strokes or More 4.50
Playoff 4.00

British Open Race Winning Margin Pick

Our pick this year is a playoff to decide the British Open – Jump on at 4.00.

How does the British Open work?

The British Open is one of the four golfing majors and starts out with a field of 156 golfers.

It will be played over four rounds of gold from Thursday 18th July until Sunday 21st July, although only the top half of the field will progress to the third and final rounds.

The tournament is stroke-play, and the lowest score wins. In the event of a tie after 72 holes, the tied players will play-off until there is one overall winner.

Canadians in Action at the British Open 2019

Austin Connelly of Nova Scotia, Corey Conners of Ontario and Adam Hadwin of British Columbia will be representing Canada during the 2019 British Open.

British Open Past Champions

The British Open is one of the oldest tournaments in the world, and the first name on the trophy is from way back in 1860.

No Canadian has ever won the British Open, which is an event that was initially dominated by players from Scotland and England and more recently the USA. 

Below is a list of the most recent winners:

Year Venue Winner Score
2019 Royal Portrush    
2018 Carnoustie Francesco Molinari (ITA) -8
2017 Royal Birkdale Jordan Spieth (USA) -12
2016 Royal Troon Henrik Stenson (SWE) -20
2015 St Andrews Zach Johnson (USA) -15
2014 Royal Liverpool Rory McIlroy (NIR) -17
2013 Muirfield Phil Mickelson (USA) -3
2012 Royal Lytham & St Annes Ernie Els (RSA) -7
