2023 British Open: Picks and Best Bets for Royal Liverpool

(Tournament Winner / Top 10 Finish) 

Jon Rahm (+1300 / +140)

The Spaniard is flying a bit under the radar for my taste. While Rory and Scheffler are commanding a larger betting handle, it’s a great time to ride the #1 player in the FedEx Cup. Rahm can channel his inner Seve to conquer Royal Liverpool.

Jordan Spieth (+3000 / +300)

He’s 9/9 in cuts made in his career at the British Open, with a win, and five top 10s at a variety of links courses. Coming off a MC at the Scottish Open, his odds came down a bit, which means we’re buying Spieth stock at a discount.

Tom Kim (+6500 / +500)

Excellent value for a player who’s trending. We’re calling last Sunday a wash, so Kim rolls into Liverpool off the heels of three very strong days of golf in Scotland. At 65/1, Tom Kim is underpriced and very much worth the gamble.

Sam Burns (+6500 / +500)

Doesn’t have great history at the British Open, so this is more of a bet on form. Burns treks into England after posting four top 30s in his last five events and looks like a player peaking at the most pivotal time of the season.

Hideki Matsuyama (+6500 / +400)  

Value play, has the pedigree, and is a very dangerous lurker on the leaderboard. Hideki is playing good golf, with five top-25 finishes in his last 8 starts. Matsuyama is a big game hunter, so 65/1 is a great time to buy the Japanese ace.
