Tiger is planning to tee it up at St. Andrews, and nobody generates golf action by bettors more than Tiger, as BetMGM data analyst John Ewing explains in his tweet. Every sportsbook will be in a similar spot, with Tiger being a heavy liability to win it all.

Tiger is seeking his 16th major victory, which would put him two behind all-time leader Jack Nicklaus. He has won on the PGA Tour 82 times, tied for most in history with Sam Snead.

There are several compelling storylines at The Open Championship:

Four-time major winner Rory McIlroy is the pre-tournament betting favorite at +900. He won the Open in 2014, capping a run of his three major titles in a span of just over three years.

Rising star Collin Morikawa, 25, won last year’s event for his second career major. Morikawa currently sits at +2000 to win the event.

Matthew Fitzpatrick, 27, returns to the United Kingdom as a hero (he was born in Sheffield), fresh off his first major victory at the U.S. Open in June. Fitzpatrick won the 2012 Boys Amateur Championship at Notts Golf Club in Nottinghamshire, England. He, like Morikawa, is listed at +2000 to win.

World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler is having a noteworthy year. Scheffler won the Masters in April for his first major, then tied for fourth at the PGA Championship and tied for second at the U.S. Open. If you think Scheffler can keep his hot play going, he might be worth a sprinkle at +1400.

FOX Sports research shows the Open winner with the longest pre-tournament odds (since 1984) was Louis Oosthuizen in 2010 (+20,000).

Since 1984, there have been four Open winners who were not listed with individual odds (listed as part of the “field”) prior to the tournament: John Daly in 1995 (+1000 as field), Paul Lawrie in 1999 (+350 as field), Ben Curtis in 2003 (+1500 as field) and Todd Hamilton in 2004 (+400 as field). 

Since 2009, five Open winners had odds of +8000 or higher prior to the opening round: Shane Lowry in 2019 (+8000), Zach Johnson in 2015 (+8000), Darren Clarke in 2011 (+15,000), Oosthuizen in 2010 (+20,000) and Stewart Cink in 2009 (+12,500).

Do you like McIlroy to end his eight-year major drought? Will Fitzpatrick take another step toward legend status in the United Kingdom? Will Scheffler put an exclamation mark on his dominant season? To place your bet on The Open Championship, head on over to FOX Bet.
