2021 British Open Odds: Favorite Jon Rahm The Most Backed in Field
The fourth and final Major of the 2021 PGA Tour season is just a few days away as the world’s best golfers head to The Royal St. George’s Golf Club in England to try and win The Open, or The British Open as it’s still known by some.
The British Open is unique in many ways. It’s the only European-based Major on Tour and it’s the only Major played at a links-style course every year. There is a certain type of golfer that wins The Open, but this year the betting public is just piling on the favorite. And for good reason as he’s probably playing the best golf in the world right now.
Jon Rahm is not only the favorite to win, according to the latest British Open odds, but he’s also the most backed golfer in the field. Usually, for golf betting, the favorite isn’t the most—backed option as bettors look down the board for value. But Rahm, with a price shorter than 10/1, is the clear pick when it comes to British Open odds.
There are a ton of good options when it comes to 2021 British Open betting, but there is one clear favorite according to the latest 2021 British Open odds. Jon Rahm, the No. 2 golfer in the world and the hottest golfer on the planet right now, is having his odds completely slashed as we approach the first round.
When the British Open odds first came out, Rahm sat around +1000 at most places. As of Tuesday morning there were still +900s on the board. But now, the very best price you can get on Jon Rahm to win the 2021 British Open is +800, and it may continue to drop as we get closer to the start.
There are also guys like Brooks Koepka, who is currently the second favorite to win the 2021 British Open and also the second most backed golfer in the field. Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy can also be found atop the 2021 British Open odds board.
