Top Betting Tips for the The Open Championship

It’s time for the Open Championship. One of the biggest golf events going will take place at Royal Birkdale Golf Club in Southport England. The beautiful par 70 course is more than 7,100 yards of rolling land. The Open Championship has been around since the middle of the 1800’s. Last season, Henrik Stenson came away as the winner. He shot a record breaking -20 at Royal Troon. Let’s take a look at the Top Betting Tips for the Open Championship in 2017:

Dustin Johnson +1400

The 33 year old Dustin Johnson has been a tricky bet as of late. He did not play in the Masters, and was really bad in the US Open. Johnson has missed the cut in his last two events, but before that, went in the Top 15 in three straight events. It’s hard to bet on the favorite here, because of the way we have seen him play. But, at +1400, Johnson is still the top ranked golfer in the world.

Sergio Garcia +1800

Sergio was the winner of the 2017 Masters. Then in the US Open, he finished 21st. Garcia has finished in the Top 30 in all of his last 5 events. Garcia has made every cut this season. He is pretty consistent, and has a good chance of going low. At +1800, many are looking at Garcia as a pretty good option to bet on.

Hideki Matsuyama +2000

The 25 year old from Japan is actually the 2nd ranked player on the PGA Tour. Matsuyama is 13 out of 15 on making cuts, and finished in the Top 10 five times this season. He was 11th at the Masters, and 2nd at the US Open. He is a great bet, and at +2000, he is a serious contender to be the champion on Sunday.

Phil Mickelson +4000

Phil Mickelson did not play in the US Open due to his daughter’s graduation. Now, Phil is going to go into the Open Championship without a driver. This is going to certainly be interesting, but you can never count of the old lefty. He has won an Open Championship before, back in 2013, at Muirfield. It would be his second of his career.

Thomas Pieters +5000

You got to like the chances of this guy. While he missed the cut at the US Open, he was fourth at the Masters and 5th at the World Golf Championships in Mexico. This is a guy many are looking at, as the next best to take down a major. At +5000, why not, right?

Rafael Cabrera Bello +5500

The 33 year old from Spain has 3 Top 10 finishes this season. He is ranked 75th in the world right now. After a 4th place finish at the St Jude Classic, he went on to shoot +2 at the US Open. He also saw a Top 5 finish back in May at the Players Championship. RCB at +5500 is worth a shot.

There you go. There is a look at the Top Betting Tips for the Open Championship. In the end, we are going to take Hideki Matsuyama.  He has done a great job in international events, and has all the tools to hang at the top of the leaderboard, and take it down. Matsuyama is +2000 to win the Open Championship, and that’s our final bet. Best of luck with all your Open Championship betting. Enjoy the action!
