Playoff Featuring 3 or More Players Vegas Odds
Playoffs are an extremely rare occurrence at The Open, with the 2015 showdown between Zach Johnson, Marc Leishman, and Louis Oosthuizen being the only time that a playoff has been required in the last ten years. In fact, there have only been five playoffs this millennium. Therefore, we will be siding with ‘No’ in this betting market for The Open this year.
Will A Playoff Be Needed To Decide The Winner Vegas Odds
As mentioned above, we have rarely seen playoffs being required at The Open. That trend is also improved based on only Open Championships held at Royal Liverpool, with all of the previous 12 editions at the course having been won by at least a shot.
Will There Be A Hole In One Vegas Odds
A nice prop betting market for all casual viewers this weekend is whether there will be a hole in one recorded by any player. We will be siding with ‘Yes’ on this market, but we won’t be expecting to see celebrations like Steph Curry’s at last weekend’s American Century Championship.
Winning Margin Vegas Odds
|Exactly 1 Shot||+225|
|4 Shots Or More||+350|
|Exactly 2 Shots||+375|
|Exactly 3 Shots||+600|
It promises to be a very close edition of The Open this weekend, meaning that we struggle to see any more than three shots being the winning margin. A chance will be taken on two shots being the winning margin, which would have been a winning selection in each of the last three Open Championships held at Royal Liverpool.
