Tiger plans to tee off at St Andrews and nobody generates more golfing action from bettors than Tiger, as BetMGM data analyst John Ewing explains in his tweet. Any sportsbook will be in a similar position, with Tiger posing a great threat of winning it all.
Tiger is aiming for his 16th major win that would put him two behind all-time leader Jack Nicklaus. He has won 82 times on the PGA Tour, the most in Sam Snead history.
There are several compelling storylines in The Open Championship:
Four-time Major winner Rory McIlroy is the pre-tournament betting favorite at +1000. He won the Open in 2014, capping a string of his three major titles in a little over three years.
Rising star Collin Morikawa, 25, won last year’s event for his second career major. Morikawa is currently at +2500 to win the event.
Matthew Fitzpatrick, 27, returns to Britain a hero (he was born in Sheffield), fresh off his first major win at the US Open in June. Fitzpatrick won the 2012 Boys Amateur Championship at Notts Golf Club in Nottinghamshire, England. He is listed at +1800 to win.
World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler has had a remarkable year. Scheffler won the Masters in April for his first major, then fourth place at the PGA Championship and second place at the US Open. If you think Scheffler can keep his hot game going, he might be worth a try at +1800.
Research by FOX Sports shows that Louis Oosthuizen was the Open winner with the longest pre-tournament odds (since 1984) in 2010 (+20,000).
Since 1984 there have been four Open winners who were not listed with individual odds (listed as part of the ‘field’) before the tournament: John Daly 1995 (+1000 as field), Paul Lawrie 1999 (+350 as field), Ben Curtis 2003 (+1500 as field) and Todd Hamilton 2004 (+400 as field).
Since 2009, five Open winners had odds of +8000 or higher before the opening round: Shane Lowry 2019 (+8000), Zach Johnson 2015 (+8000), Darren Clarke 2011 (+15,000), Oosthuizen 2010 (+20,000) and Stewart Cink in 2009 (+12,500).
Do you want McIlroy to end his eight-year great drought? Will Fitzpatrick take another step towards legend status in the UK? Is Scheffler putting an exclamation mark on his dominant season? To place your bet on The Open Championship go to FOX bet.
