2023 Open Championship odds, predictions, favorites, picks: Scheffler favored

The PGA Tour’s fourth and final golf major of the year is upon us!

The top golfers in the world will descend to the Royal Liverpool Golf Club in England for the Open Championship, which runs from July 20-23. The track will play as a par-71 that is 7,312 yards long.

We’ve got you covered with everything from the odds to best bets, so let’s dive into the action.

The last time the Open Championship was held at the Royal Liverpool Golf Club was in 2014. Rory McIlroy won the Open Championship that year, shooting 17-under-par 271 to beat Rickie Fowler and Sergio Garcia by two strokes. 

That was also McIlroy’s last major tournament win. The Northern Irishman has been on the brink of winning a major tournament multiple times since then, including at last year’s Open Championship when he finished third, two strokes behind winner Cameron Smith. McIlroy also finished in second at the U.S. Open this year, losing to Wyndham Clark by one stroke. He enters this year’s Open Championship fresh off his win at the Scottish Open this past weekend, too. 

The Favorites

Speaking of McIlory, he is the co-favorite to win the tournament, holding +750 odds at FOX Bet. Scottie Scheffler (+750, bet $10 to win $100 total), Jon Rahm (+1100), Brooks Koepka (+1400) and Smith (+1400) round out the top five among the betting favorites. 

Here are the odds of several of the top golfers for the Open Championship.
