Open Championship Betting Preview And Tips

All eyes will head to Carnoustie at the end of the week, as the 147th Open Championship will take centre stage, and unsurprisingly the usual names are at the head of the betting with Dustin Johnson top of the latest Open Championship Odds, but the American star will face a whole host of lively challengers in what is one of the highlights on the British sporting calendar.

Matt Kuchar (each way) @ 80 / 1  
Zach Johnson (each way) @ 80 / 1  

Open Championship Odds

Johnson's best finish in the Open came in 2011, where he finished runner-up, and he has often shown that he can perform to a very high level on Links courses, but the 12/1 favourite with Betfred has often showed that he can throw in a below-par round in these Major events, and with consistency needed over all four rounds then he could be one to ignore.

Fellow American Jordan Spieth will line up as the reigning champion having won impressively at Royal Birkdale 12 months ago, and at 22/1 with Unibet the multiple Major winner has to be one of the premier American challengers alongside the likes of Rickie Fowler (18/1 with Betfair) and Justin Thomas (25/1 with Ladbrokes), who is another in the mould of Johnson, who can struggle to produce his best over 72 holes.

Three-times winner Tiger Woods will no doubt attract significant money in the betting, but at 28/1 with Betfair is awfully skinny, while the home challenge is lead by Justin Rose (16/1 with Ladbrokes), Rory McIlroy (18/1 with Betfair) and Tommy Fleetwood (22/1 with Betfair).

Of that classy trio it's Rose that makes most appeal as he can often provide the most consistent golf on Links courses, but having recorded his best finish in 1998 when finishing tied for fourth spot then he is not a competitor to back in the win market for the four-day event that concludes on Sunday afternoon.

Swedish star Henrik Stenson showed he had the game to win a Major when picking up the Claret Jug in 2016, and the Ryder Cup star makes most appeal from those at the head of the betting, and at 25/1 with BetVictor the experienced performer can record his second Open Championship.

Jon Rahm (22/1 with Betfair) and Sergio Garcia (33/1 with Unibet) are another couple of notable European contenders, but the Spanish duo can often find it tough to get themselves over the line, and both are worth ignoring in the win market, but the pair are certainly both interesting each-way players.

Open Championship Tips

With Henrik Stenson selected as our ante-post win selection then it's mostly always the case that punters make the most of some eye-catching each-way offers out there, and with such a bumper field heading to the tee then there's always going to be some notable value, and with Paddy Power playing ten places in their each-way markets then it's worth looking for some huge-priced contenders.

Padraig Harrington was the winner of the Open last time it was held at Carnoustie in 2007, and the Irishman is as big as 200/1 with Unibet, while another former winner Stewart Cink is available at huge odds, and he has often flourished in this event, and is value at 200/1 with BetVictor.

American Matt Kuchar was a fine runner-up to Spieth last year at Birkdale, and Kuchar is over-priced at 80/1 with Betfred, if he can recapture that form, while 2015 winner Zach Johnson is another consistent performer that excels on British shores, and is worthy of a mention at 80/1 with Ladbrokes.
