Red Hot Spieth The Bet In Open Championship First Round Leader Betting

Thursday 20th July 2017, 6.30am - Open Championship (Birkdale)

The 2017 Open Championship gets underway on Thursday morning and backing the first round leader is one of the most popular bets for any golf punters. Looking for the players high on confidence and ready for a quick start is one of the key side bets of the week, and we have picked out a number of potential contenders.

Spieth The Most Attractive Of The Market Leaders

The top of the first round leader market is littered with the usual suspects but the one that sticks out is Jordan Spieth, who many believe is set to lift his first Claret Jug.

The American has endured a difficult 18 months by his standards but the signs over the last few months have been encouraging and he arrives at Royal Birkdale with his tail up. Spieth was last seen winning the Travelers Championship, and that started off with a stunning first round of 63 which will have given him a massive boost.

His round one scoring average of 69.43 on the PGA tour is the 8th highest in 2017 so we know he is playing well on day one, and with that in mind, 28/1 with Betfred to be the first round leader is a great punt.

Each Way Options?

Punters looking for some juicier options in this first round leader market might want to have a look at the Rafa Cabrera Bello (70/1), who arrives at Birkdale hot off a very impressive win last weekend.

The Spaniard won the Scottish Open at the weekend in impressive style so is sure to be bouncing with confidence as he tees it up which means he might attract some each-way money from punters.

Golf fans delving into this market need to look at the players capable of hitting low scores with the weather looking pretty still on Thursday, and the exciting Justin Thomas is one that falls into that category. The American is capable of blitzing any course in the world, as he showed when hitting a 59 at the Sony Open, and with the 5th best scoring average on the PGA tour, plenty will rightly fancy him at 60/1 with Paddy Power.

On balance it is Jordan Spieth who takes the eye here and he will be carrying our money on Thursday with the American expected to hit the ground running in pursuit of another Major Championship.
