British Open Favourites
Rose, McIlroy, Scott, Stenson and Kaymer are, as expected, favourites with most of the major bookies to claim the famous Claret Jug. After an early comeback from surgery, Tiger Woods is billed as a contender and possibly worth using a British Open free bet or two on!
Justin Rose, the world No.3, tees off in the 1st round with world No.1 Adam Scott (AUS) and Jason Dufner (USA). Rose has never finished in the top 10 in the British Open since turning pro, however, bookies reckon he’ll do well his year after his recent win at the Scottish Open.
PaddyPower offer the best odds on Just Rose winning the British Open at 14/1 as well as a super generous betting offer of £250 in free bets for new account holders.
Australia's Adam Scott is also looking to be in strong form coming into the 2014 British Open, having finished in the top 3 in the past 2 years. William Hill offer the best odds at 18/1 on Adam Scott winning the tournament as offering a £25 free bet for new signups.
After a recent bad run, Rory McIlroy seems to be coming back into form and he tees off against Hideki Matsuyama (JPN) and Jordan Spieth (USA) in his first round of the 2014 British Open. Bet365 offer the best odds on McIlory at 16/1 which could generate £3,200 in winnings if you claim the £200 free bet offer that's available when you register a new account.
Two of the other top contenders begin their opening round together, when Henrik Stenson (SWE) tees off with Tiger Woods (USA) and Angel Cabrera (ARG). Stenson has a decent success rate in the British Open, having finished runner up in 2013, and has 3 top five finishes out of his last 5 appearances. 888sport offer the best odds on Stenson at 18/1.
Although Tiger Woods is up there according to the bookies, chances of him coming back to win after major back surgery could be pretty slim. If you do think he can win the 2014 British Open then you'll get pretty high odds as Stan James currently have Woods at 25/1 to win!
Martin Kaymer hasn’t had the best run in British Open's, his last top 10 was in 2010 but a lot of bookies are tipping him to do well this year. Bet Victor offer the best odds on Kaymer to win this years British Open at 22/1 as well as a £25 free bet when you open a new account.
While bookies expect the top players to do well in the British Open, it’s worth taking a look at the current form of lower rated golfers like Garcia, McDowell or Matsuyama. There's some great British Open odds flying about for them at the moment and it could just be their year.
Whoever you’re planning to bet on to win the British Open make sure you get in early, claim betting promotions or free bets and get the best odds before the competition starts!
