2022 Early Odds Open Championship (PGA)

Just like that, only one major remains in the 2022 PGA Tour season. The future of golf is as uncertain as it has been for a long time, with an increasing number of golfers defecting from LIV Golf. Things will get interesting after the 2022 Open, as many will have to make serious decisions.

Before then, however, the 150th edition of The Open will kick off in golf’s birthplace of St Andrews in Scotland on July 14. Let’s take a closer look at some of our favorite games, according to DraftKings Sportsbook, that most likely bring home the win.

Highest Odds Open Championship

Rory McIlroy (+900 on DraftKings sports website)

Including the US Open, which he was contesting of late, Rory McIlroy has picked up five top-10 spots in his last six starts, including his outright victory at the Canadian Open. Likely to be the main four-time winner of the competition comes this weekend again here in St Andrews.

John Ram (+1000 on DraftKings Sportsbook)

Originally a favorite at +900 prior to McIlroy’s recent run, John Rahm has become a mainstay on the odds boards when the majors roll in. With T3 completed in last year’s edition, look for Rham to return in the midst of the 2022 Open Championship.

Scotty Scheffler (+1200 on DraftKings Sportsbook)

Since showing strong last year at the Open Champion (T8) in his debut, Scotty Scheffler has taken up golf, climbing to number one in the world. After finishing in the top three at the US Open, Schaeffler will be seeking his fifth PGA Tour win and second major of the season.

Justin Thomas (+1400 on DraftKings Sportsbook)

Justin Thomas has been at an all-time high this season, competing in all three disciplines so far, including winning the PGA Championship. With two Top Fives in his past four events, JT can take that home too.

Colin Morikawa (+1600 on DraftKings Sportsbook)

The champion returns when Colin Morikawa won the 2021 Open in dramatic fashion and comes this year’s edition playing great golf. In the row going into Sunday’s US Open, look for the same here.

Jordan Spieth (+1800 on DraftKings Sportsbook)

After finishing second after Morikawa last season, Jordan Spieth has the tools to do the same this year and get the job done. However, composure after poor shots will be crucial to the Texans.

Cameron Smith (+1800 on DraftKings Sportsbook)

I was high in the A-League heading to Brooklyn last week, where he faltered early, missing only his third portion of the entire season. I’m expecting a comeback here, as Cameron Smith already has nine of the top 25 players in the 14 events played this season.

Matthew Fitzpatrick (2000+ on DraftKings sports website)

The 2022 US Open champion will return to the UK with a newly formed target on his back after winning his first major. The only question left is, “How will he rise to the pressure?”
