  • Jordan Spieth – 2pt win at 12/1 Betfred

  • Justin Rose – 1pt win at 40/1 Coral

  • Andy Sullivan – 0.5pts each-way at 100/1, 6 places with BetVictor

The 145th Open Championship takes place at Royal Troon in South Ayrshire, kicking off on Sky Sports 1 at 6.30am on Thursday morning. At the top of the betting market, the rise and resurgence of Jason Day and Dustin Johnson sees that pair heading the prices at 9/1 apiece generally, but at 12/1 with Betfred, JORDAN SPIETH can prove the value pick as we enter an exciting four days of golf betting.

Last year, Jordan Spieth was incredibly unlucky not to win the Open, losing out to Zach Johnson in a play-off. But there was immense pressure on the 22-year old coming into the tournament on the back of two major wins. A year on and he has no real weight on his shoulders. We all know how good his short game is and that will help him at Troon. Royal Troon, like many classic links golf courses, is nine holes out and away from the 1st tee and nine back to the clubhouse.

The front nine, which mostly runs out along the coast, is the scoring nine and splits will be particularly exaggerated if the prevailing winds are on show. The weather can change quickly. On Thursday it’s to be dry, but rain is forecast for Friday and that throws a spanner in the works for the remainder of the weekend. Jordan Spieth looks poised to regain momentum here and send out a healthy reminder.

Justin Rose is the second fancy at big odds of 40/1. Rose revealed to Sky Sports that he’d been playing a series of practice rounds at Royal Troon last week and had experienced “a couple of different winds” so that extra homework can help his cause. Injuries have hampered him recently and he certainly looked short of sharpness when missing the cut in the US Open golf and then finishing a modest T46 at Firestone. The Englishman finished T6 at St. Andrews last year however and could peak here.

Finally at a juicy 100/1 at BetVictor and with 6 each-way places on offer, Andy Sullivan is a bit of a dark horse. Three-time winner on the European Tour last year, Sullivan went flat for a spell but is now very much on an upward curve again. A run of three top 25’s was the catalyst and he’s since kicked on with T5 at the Open de France and T6 at the recent Scottish Open. His only Open appearance came at St. Andrews last year where he finished a creditable T30. A confidence golfer, he is capable of making a splash at big odds.
