British Open Odds: Tyrrell Hatton Undervalued?
The England native has competed in nine Open Championships but has made the cut just three times. Nevertheless, Davis is most intrigued by Hatton — with his best British Open odds currently at .
Among the previous three majors this year, Hatton’s best finish was at the PGA Championship, where he tied for 13th place with even par. He gained 2.63 strokes overall (via Data Golf), impressing with his iron play in particular. Moreover, Hatton finished in a tie for 24th place (with the same score) at the Genesis Scottish Open — the most recent PGA Tour event.
“I’m sure I’ll bet another guy or two, but I’m waiting for somewhere to go rogue on someone,” Davis said. “I generally let the other sportsbooks tell me who I’m going to bet (based on where there’s value in the number).”
Biggest Liability Among British Open Odds?
Unsurprisingly, Davis noted that Tiger Woods () represents Circa Sports’ biggest liability to win the The 150th Open — by a wide margin. Below are four other golfers who follow suit in that department:
- Jordan Spieth ()
- Cam Smith ()
- Dustin Johnson ()
- Tony Finau ()
The same holds true at BetMGM Sportsbook, as Woods has generated the second-most tickets (5.7%) and the third-largest portion of the overall handle (6.7%), respectively. Nevertheless, his price tag has shifted from +4000 to +6600 as of Tuesday.
Other popular British Open odds include Woods to notch a top 20 finish () and McIlroy to sit atop the leaderboard after the first round ().
