  • Round 2 of the 2019 Open Championship begins at 1:35 a.m. ET on Friday morning.
  • Our staff lists their favorite bets for tomorrow's golf action at Royal Portrush:

Round 2 of the 2019 Open Championship begins on Friday morning at 1:35 a.m. ET at Royal Portrush and if Thursday is any indication of what’s to come, we should expect some weird golf for the next three days.

J.B. Holmes is the surprising leader after 18 holes at 5-under, but he is not the favorite after Round 1. That honor belongs to World No. 1 Brooks Koepka.

Koepka is now the sole favorite to win the Claret Jug at 4-1. The 29-year-old Florida native is currently tied for third at 3-under par with a gaggle of other golfers, including Jon Rahm, Tommy Fleetwood and Sergio Garcia.

The big story from Thursday was Rory McIlroy. The Northern Irishman melted down on both ends of his round and shot 8-over par. The pre-tournament favorite is now 350-1 to win the Open Championship.

Here are our staff’s favorite bets for Round 2:
