Who will win the British Open Championship 2019?
Rory McIlroy is one of the form players on tour and will be tough to beat on what is essentially his home ground. At odds up to 9.75 for the outright win, there's certainly plenty of money to be made with a bet on the Northern Irishman.
Fun first day at the #ASIScottishOpen. Will look to keep it going Friday! 💪 If you missed it check out @GOLFPASS to get caught up and see every shot tomorrow too https://t.co/5RkWpFHbWt pic.twitter.com/5UhVwEbFHN— Rory McIlroy (@McIlroyRory) July 11, 2019
British Open Picks and Predictions - Dark Horse
The British Open always throws up some contenders from left-field. This year it could be Patrick Cantlay who makes his mark on world golf with a standout performance. At odds around 29.00 for the win, he's certainly worth placing a wager on.
British Open Picks and Predictions - Race Winning Margin
The most common margin of victory at the British Open is one stroke, although we're predicting a much closer finish in the race for the 2019 trophy. We haven't seen a playoff at a major for some time now, so surely we're due for some 73rd hole drama.
British Open Picks and Predictions - Top Amateur
You won't find Curtis Knipes near the top of the odds list in the amateur market, although we're backing the Englishman to excel here. He is at great odds at 15.00.
Surely we're due for some 73rd hole drama.
The Open Odds Guide
If you are worried about getting in on British Open wagering lines, don't be. All top PGA focused sportsbooks have a huge number of betting lines and markets available. The Open odds are not limited to the outright market alone.
Wagers can be placed on the British Open both before and during the tournament, so there's always an opportunity to bet. The full list of odds for the event normally appear in the week preceding the tournament, so make sure you check out our odds page for the best sports betting odds in Canada.
The best place for all your golf odds is right here at Canada's home of sports betting.
British Open Top 20 Finish
The easiest and most common bet at The Open is the Top 20 Finish. While odds for the outright market are usually in excess of (9.00) per player they can be tough to call.
Bettors receive lower prices, on far less players, in this category. Find golfers who are consistently in contention and you should be in for a pay day. Odds should be posted by the middle of June for the tables below.

British Open Top European Odds
This market has become hugely popular in recent years given the success of Europeans on the PGA Tour.
Look for names like Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia here. Ian Poulter from England, along with Henrick Stenson from Sweden, are also contenders in The Open title race in 2020.

British Open Round Leader Odds
All the major tournaments are made up of four rounds, and it's always interesting to look back and see which player led coming into the weekend.
For this line, you need to pick a fast starter, and the name Tommy Fleetwood certainly comes to mind.
You could also do worse than picking one of the top golfers in the world like Dustin Johnson or Justin Thomas here.

British Open Race Winning margin odds
This bet simply focuses on the likely winning margin at the end of all four rounds, and while this can be tricky to pick, in reality there are only a few viable choices.
The most common margin would be one stroke, although there's always a small chance a player like Jordan Spieth could get hot and win by four or more. Here are the Race Winning odds as posted at William Hill sportsbook:
|Race Winning Margin|
|Exactly 1 Shot||3.50|
|Four or More Shots||4.33|
|Exactly 2 Shots||4.50|
|Exactly 3 Shots||5.50|
British Open Playoff Odds
Speaking of margins, if the tournament finishes with one or more tied at the top of the leaderboard, a four-hole playoff will ensue. Odds of a tie are not as low as one may think, as seven of the last 21 Open Championships have required extra holes. A juicy (4.00) YES playoff price is worth considering.

British Open Top Former Winner Odds
Winning is a habit, and when a player wins a tournament, or wins at a particular course, there's a decent chance they will play well on their next appearance. Francesco Molinari will start as one of the favourites here given he is defending champion.
However, remember that the course won't be the same, so we could see a better score by another former winner in 2019.

How to find the best welcome bonus for British Open betting?
Welcome bonuses are one of the first things you will see when you arrive at a sports betting website - so what are they?
Essentially, all betting companies will entice you to deposit money on their page, and the most common way of doing that is to match whatever you deposit (let's say $50) with a bonus bet of equal or greater value.
There are restrictions, and welcome bonus bets don't always translate to instant cash.
Sometimes, you will need to 'turnover' your welcome bonus by using it to bet several times before you can withdraw. Plus, you won't be able to pick any bet - usually the odds will need to be over a certain value (say 1.50).
Also, the general rule is that you will need to deposit money before you can get your bonus, so you still need to invest.
You should be able to use welcome bonuses to bet on most British Open betting lines, and if you win, you can simply apply those winnings to your next bet. It's that simple.
Don't forget that you can collect these bonuses from all of our partner betting sites - check out all the bonuses right here.
Which Bookie has the highest British Open Odds?
Canada Sports Betting has dozens of partners and all of them offer odds for the British Open. So, that means you will need to compare the odds at each individual sportsbook before betting to ensure that you are getting the best value for money.
There are a few ways to compare. You can check today's odds right here by using our odds list - this shows odds from a select few of our partners side by side so you can get a basic understanding of the likely odds available.
If you want to go even further, you can open up all of our partner sportsbooks and compare each page individually to try and find a bargain bet.
We can't stress enough how important it is to research your bet, and that starts with finding the best odds.
Which Bookie has the most current British Open Odds?
All sports betting websites will have odds available, but which bookie is the most up to date?
There is no correct answer for this question. All sportsbooks odds are 'live', meaning what you see is what you can bet on.
It is important for a sportsbook to stay sharp as odds can fluctuate all the time; as a sports bettor, it is sometimes better to find a sportsbook that has been slow to update their odds, because you might get a better deal.
William Hill, Sports Interaction and Bet365, just to mention a few, are usually pretty fast.
You'll find that most sports betting websites will post odds for new markets within a few hours of each other, so there is no particular place that has the edge over the other companies.
You'll also see several betting options across the board for the British Open. Pre-tournament betting will focus on the outright/future markets, such as Winner, Top 20 Finish and Top Amateur Player, while you can also bet live and look to pick the best players in each round as the action unfolds.
Some of our betting partners will also offer unique proposition bets - Race Winning Margin is a good example, and involves picking the number of shots between the winner and the runner-up.
We've selected a wide range of partners for you, and you really can't go wrong with whichever sportsbook you choose to bet with.
How Does the British Open Work
The Open is a typical stroke-play golf tournament where the lowest scoring player over four rounds is declared the winner.
Out of a field of approximately 100, around half will be 'cut' after the first two rounds. Typically, the players eligible to continue to the final rounds will be in the top-50 on the leaderboard, or within ten strokes of the leader.
In the event that two or more players are tied at the end of the four rounds, a playoff will be enforced. This involves the leaders playing extra hole(s) in a sudden death contest to determine the outright winner.
British Open All-Time Champions
The oldest golf tournament in the world - the British Open has been played since 1860. The list of all-time champions is dominated by Scottish players from the early years of the event, although the most prolific player is Jersey's Harry Vardon (picture), who won the tournament six times between 1896 and 1914.
