Odds to win British Open Entering Final Round
Odds via DraftKings
Louis Oosthuizen remains the betting favorite to go wire-to-wire to break through in a major championship and take down the 2021 British Open.
But a couple big names are chasing close behind.
Oosthuizen does own an Open Championship (2010), but he’s become more associated with runner-up finishes in majors. He’s taken second place in all four majors, including runner-up in both the PGA Championship and U.S. Open this season.
To win his first major since 2010, he’ll need to hold off Collin Morikawa and Jordan Spieth right behind him and a handful of chasers on the periphery, including Jon Rahm.
Oosthuizen is +150 at DraftKings to close on Sunday, when he’ll enter play at 12-under. That’s one shot ahead of Morikawa (-11) and three ahead of Spieth (-9). Morikawa is +200 to win his second career major. Spieth is +500.
It’s a major drop-off on the oddsboard from there to Rahm at +1600. Rahm is tied for sixth at 7-under, but he is ahead of Scottie Scheffler (-8) and Corey Conners (-8) to win. Scheffler is +2000 with Conners at +2500.
Conners will play in the second-to-last pairing with Spieth, which tees off at 9:25 a.m. ET. Rahm and Scheffler are in the third-to-last pairing at 9:15 a.m. ET. Morikawa and Oosthuizen are in the final group at 9:35 a.m.
