Smith was priced at +3000 before teeing off to win the British Open, and his odds were slashed all the way down to +900 entering Friday's second round.

After another incredible showing by him in today's second round, he is now the favorite to win The Open Championship, priced at +185. That implied he's gone from just a 3% chance to now a 35% chance of winning the final major in 2022 entering the weekend.

It would take a monumental collapse by the Australian to not finish inside the Top 10 as oddsmakers give him over a 90% chance of accomplishing this come Sunday at St. Andrews.

Cameron Smith is currently in first place on the British Open leaderboard, and oddsmakers also have him priced as the favorite heading into the weekend at the Open Championship. He sits one shot ahead of the first-round leader Cameron Young and two shots ahead of the favorite Rory McILroy and Viktor Hovland, who charged up the leaderboard in the afternoon.

The current leader in the clubhouse, Cam Smith shot the best round of the day, finishing -8.

The favorite coming into the final major, Rory McILroy, was priced with +1000 odds at the start of the tournament. Now, he's priced down at +330. Those +1000 odds implied a 9.1% chance he wins at St. Andrews. At +330, that implied probability is up to 23.3%. Both golfers have more than doubled their chances after completing the first two rounds at the 2022 Open Championship. Gear up for an exciting Saturday and Sunday at St. Andrews!
