Given Rory McIlroy's sensational run of results through the U.S. Open, it's no surprise that the Northern Irishman ended the week of 2022's third major championship as the betting favorite for the 2022 Open Championship.

After the U.S. Open, here’s how McIlroy’s last six results read: T5-1-T18-8-5-2. Five top 10s in six starts, including a win. Yeah, it makes sense that BetMGM has him atop the odds board.

It also helps that McIlroy has a strong track record at this event. He won the Open back in 2014 and had three top-5 finishes from 2016 to 2018. Notably, however, McIlroy's last two results are T46-MC.

Following McIlroy are Jon Rahm, Scottie Scheffler and Justin Thomas.

Rahm has gone T3-T11 in his last two Open starts, while Scheffler went T8 last year in his first crack at it. Thomas’ track record in the UK is less impressive: He’s made five career Open Championship starts, going T40-T11-MC-MC-T53.

Right below them on the oddsboard is Matt Fitzpatrick and Collin Morikawa. No doubt Fitzpatrick will be a popular pick after his U.S. Open victory. He shot up the odds board past a lot of big names after claiming his first win in the United States in Brookline, Mass.

Fitzpatrick was no fluke winner — his victory was inevitable. In 2022, Fitzpatrick's results have been stellar. He has made 13 starts on TOUR in 2013, he has finished in the top 20 in 10 of those starts and has finished in the top 10 on eight occasions. The three times when Fitzpatrick wasn’t in the top 20, he missed the cut.

Morikawa is the reigning champion at this event, which he turned into winning the Race to Dubai — the DP World Tour (the European Tour) equivalent of the FedEx Cup.

Unlike Fitzpatrick, Morikawa’s 2022 results have not been great outside of two top-five finishes at the Masters and U.S. Open. Since his T2 finish at the Genesis Invitational in mid-February, Morikawa's best non-major result in a stroke-play event was T26 at the RBC Heritage.

Morikawa was in the final group on Saturday at the U.S. Open, but a 7-over day ruined any hopes he had of contending. A 4-under 66 got him back into the top five, though.

The other big name on the oddsboard that will stand out to bettors is Tiger Woods, who skipped the U.S. Open with his eyes on this tournament. Woods has called St. Andrews his favorite golf course on the planet, which is pretty clear given he won the Open there in 2000 and 2005.

Golf’s G.O.A.T. made the cut at both the Masters and PGA Championship, although he didn’t complete the final day at Southern Hills in Tulsa because of his leg.

Bet the Open Championship, Win $200 (No Matter What!)
