British Open Odds: Bettors skirt Tiger Woods; Koepka, McIlroy still co-favorites at 8-1

By

Rory McIlroy and Brooks Koepka this week remain co-favorites to win the British Open, which begins a week from Thursday at Royal Portrush.

Among oddsmakers, including those at the Las Vegas SuperBook and golfodds.com, McIlroy and Koepka are 8-1 to win the final major of 2019. That’s the same spot where they were a week ago.

Koepka had been as low as 6-1 in comparison to McIlroy, a Northern Ireland native, who was once at 10-1.

The most notable movement near the top of the board has been by Tiger Woods, who has slid down to 16-1 this week after being as high as 12-1 in recent weeks. Woods has not played since fizzling at Pebble Beach in the U.S. Open and will have been off for nearly five full weeks when he tees off in the early hours of July 18 in the United States.

Woods’ slide has come thanks in part to money moving toward Dustin Johnson, who edged up to 12-1 this week from 14-1 last week. Bryson DeChambeau got a boost after his T-2 finish at the 3M Open. He’s now 30-1 to win The Open after being 50-1 last week.

Since winning the Masters on April 14, some 85 days ago, Woods has only played 10 rounds of competitive golf across three tournaments. He missed the cut at the PGA Championship at Bethpage Black in May before finishing T-9 at the Memorial and T-21 at the U.S. Open.

Woods still had a busy break before getting up Monday for a 1 a.m wake-up call in preparation for the time change of the Open Championship.

He visited Thailand with his mother, children and girlfriend. He was dropped from a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the parents of a former bartender who died in a crash after leaving his restaurant in Jupiter, Fla. And he got his Masters trophy in the mail.

Final qualifying for The Open concluded last week. Among the noted qualifiers, former Stanford standout Brandon Wu is 1000-1.

Here are player-to-win odds for the 2019 British Open, as of Monday night.
