40/1 shot dominating the Open Championship Betting

Will there be an Englishman to win the Open Championship?

Jordan Speith and Rory Mcllroy have both claimed victory in the Open Championship over the last four seasons, making it easy to believe another short priced favourite would be punters pick heading into this year’s Open.

However, bettors are backing Tyrrell Hatton to become the first Englishman to win the competition since Nick Faldo in 1992. Hatton finished tied sixth at the US Open, and is currently two shots of the lead at the Scottish Open. Bookies are still offering 40/1 for him to win the Open Championship, but we wouldn’t expect that price to be around if he can secure victory in Aberdeen.

Since the first ball was struck up in Scotland Hatton has accounted for 7.5% of bets to win the Open Championship, more than any other player in the field. Rickie Fowler has been the second most backed in that period.

The third most supported player is Ryan Fox, who is an astonishing 125/1 to win the Open. The New Zealander lost out in a play-off against Russell Knox last weekend, and is one shot of the lead going into the final day in Scotland.
