Thursday sees the world’s best golfers tee off at Royal St. George’s in Sandwich, England for the historic Claret Jug. Open Championship sportsbook promos are rolling in for the final major championship of the season.

They’ll play the course named after England’s patron saint for the tournament with seemingly competing names.

As often happens, we wonder if we can call it the British Open or, as the locals may prefer, The Open. Tuesday, the 2013 champion Phil Mickelson tweeted a story that an Earl called it the British Open when awarding the Claret Jug to Bobby Jones in 1930.

In the meantime, here are some 2021 Open Championship sportsbook promos.

PointsBet has really carved out a niche with their golf offerings and unique promos. For this weekend, they combined their passions with three interesting odds boosts and a money-back offer.

Bet a golfer to win the Open on the pre-tournament futures market and if he finished top-10, the wager will be refunded as free bets, up to $25. You must hit the opt-in button in the app to activate this promo.

Here are the other odds boosts:

  • Any American to win the Open: +120 (-145 at other sportsbooks)
  • Justin Thomas AND Jordan Speith to finish Top 10: +800 (typical parlay for this would be about +600)
  • Any player whose last name starts with a W to win the Open: +2000 (Lee Westwood, Matt Wallace, Gary Woodland, Bernd Wiesberber, Danny Willett, Jimmy Walker, Connor Worsdall); technically some theoretical value here, but none of these names were backed by our hosts in TheLines Open Championship podcast special.
