Louis Oosthuizen hasn’t been able to close major championships in recent years, but the South African is the betting favorite to get it done this weekend at the British Open.
Oosthuizen (-11) followed an opening-round 64 with a 65 on Friday to put himself two shots clear of Collin Morikawa (-9) and three ahead of Jordan Spieth (-8). That lead is enough to make him +220 at DraftKings to win his second Claret Jug.
Spieth is second on the oddsboard at +400 ahead of Morikawa at +450.
Plenty of big names played their way into the weekend conversation on Saturday, including the No. 1 ranked player in the world, Dustin Johnson. Johnson’s 5-under round on Friday put him 7-under for the tournament and within striking distance at +700.
Just close enough to have a chance, Brooks Koepka and Jon Rahm are both 5-under, six shots back of the lead. Rahm is +1200 and Koepka comes in at +1400 to win.
The only other player with odds below +2000 is Scottie Scheffler, who is tied with Johnson in 4th at 7-under par. He’s +1400.
Bettors are counting on longshots after those names. While Dylan Frittelli is also at 7-under, he’s +5500 to win with 36 holes left. Paul Casey is tied with Koepka and Rahm, but is +3500.
In total, 15 golfers have odds below 100-1.
