As the last Golf Major of the season approaches, the Open Championship 2022, the first three major of the year saw three different winners. If this trend continues at Open 2022, it will be the fourth year in a row that no golfer has won multiple majors, as Brooks Koepka (2018) was the last to do so. But the three winners so far this year – Scottie Scheffler, Justin Thomas and Matt Fitzpatrick – are all top golfers with short odds for the 2022 Open Championship at Caesars Sportsbook. Should you back any of these three with your 2022 Open Championship bets?

The 150th Open Championship will begin on Thursday July 14 at the Old Course in St Andrews in Scotland. Rory McIlroy, who won the British Open in 2014, is the 9-1 favorite at Caesars Sportsbook and the only golfer with single-digit odds. The other favorites of the last odds of the Open Championship 2022 include Jon Rahm (10-1), Scheffler (12-1), Thomas (14-1) and Fitzpatrick (20-1). Before locking in your picks for the 2022 Open Championship or entering PGA DFS tournaments on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel, be sure to check out the PGA Tour predictions and betting tips from SportsLine’s Proven Golf Model.

SportsLine’s exclusive model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been scorching since the PGA Tour resumed in June 2020. In fact, it’s risen more than $9,500 on its best bets since then, nailing tournament after tournament.

McClure’s model included Thomas in his best bets to win the 2022 PGA Championship. That bet reached +1600, and for the entire tournament, McClure’s best bets returned nearly $800. At the 2022 Masters, McClure’s pattern was all over Scheffler’s first major championship victory heading into the weekend.

Additionally, McClure’s best bets included winning Collin Morikawa at The Open Championship 2021, even though it was a whopping 40-1. The pattern was also all over Rahm’s first career major league win (10-1) at the 2021 US Open. Rahm was two shots off heading into the weekend, but the pattern still projected him as the winner.

This same model also managed eight majors entering the weekend. Everyone who followed him saw massive returns.

Now that the British Open 2022 golf tournament is approaching, Sportsline has simulated the 10,000 -time tournament, and the results were surprising. Head over to SportsLine now to see the projected standings.

Best Open Championship 2022 Predictions

A huge shock that the model is claiming at the Open Championship 2022: Collin Morikawa (18-1), the reigning British Open champion and one of the tournament favorites, stumbles and does not make the top five. Morikawa had a fifth-place finish in the United States at the Open and Masters, but was nowhere to be found in the PGA Championship standings, finishing ahead of the top 50.

Last year’s Open Championship remains Morikawa’s last victory, and although he started this season with five straight top-10 finishes, success has been fleeting since then. In his last 10 tournaments, he has more finishes outside the top 50 (four) than he has in the top 10 (three). His biggest culprit is his short game, which went from above average to one of the worst on the tour. He ranks 180th out of 204 players on tour in Strokes Gained: Around the Green (-.307), and that weakness could be amplified on a course with over 100 bunkers.

Another surprise: Dustin Johnson, a 28-1 long shot, is having a good run for the title. He is a target for anyone looking for a huge salary. Johnson finished eighth at last year’s British Open, which is among his four top 10 finishers at The Open Championship. He also appeared twice at St Andrews, including a top 15 finish at the 2010 British Open.

Now playing in the Liv Golf Series, the statistics of the PGA Tour of Johnson still classify it among the best players in this circuit. He remains one of the best in the world off the start, ranking 14th in driving distance (312.8 yards) and also has a top 25 in strokes gained: approach to green (.532).

The two-time major champion is averaging 4.12 birdies per round, which puts him in the 90th percentile. This ability to constantly break normal will be useful in St Andrews, which has seen its last four open champions display an average score of 16 under normal. Given its long Open Championship 2022 dimensions but its exceptional current form, you can see why the model is high on Johnson.

How to make picks for The Open Championship 2022

The model targets two other golfers with odds of 22-1 or better who will make surprising runs. Anyone backing those long shots could hit big. You can only see the model choices here.
