The 146th British Open - Golf Betting Preview

Online Golf Betting Preps for Open Championship

Posted by: Mike Davis

The third major online golf betting tournament is right around the corner. The 146th British Open, colloquially referred to as the Open Championship, will commence this upcoming Thursday. On that date, all sportsbook eyes will flock to Southport, England, where Henrik Stenson – the reigning champion, will try to defend his hard earned title.

Unfortunately for the Swede, most online golf betting lines aren’t giving him much of a shot in 2017. Stenson doesn’t have the worst odds of the field, but he certainly isn’t the favorite. In fact, Dustin Johnson, Hideki Matsuyama, Jordan Spieth, and Justin Rose are all facing better odds than the reigning champ.

However, heading into this tournament, most players who bet on golf feel that Dustin Johnson, who is facing some of the best odds of the field, won’t even be able to crack the top 5. However, Hideki Matsuyama and Tommy Fleetwood are considered some of the best sportsbook picks available. Players interested in reviewing individual odds can find the complete listings down below.
