2022 British Open odds: Surprising PGA picks, golf predictions from top-rated model that nailed the Masters

SportsLine’s proven model simulated the Open Championship 2022 10,000 times and revealed its PGA picks

The Old Course at St. Andrews, the site of the 2022 Open, will open for play on Thursday. This year’s British Open is being marked as the 150th anniversary of the tournament. The Open Championship in 2022 is a top priority for Tiger Woods, despite his recent health issues. Woods has planned his training schedule to ensure he is healthy. It’s no secret that St. Andrews holds a special place in the hearts of some of the greatest golfers of all time, including the 15-time major champion, who has won there twice.

For this reason, Woods withdrew from the 2022 PGA Championship, and he also skipped the 2022 U.S. Open in order to ensure his participation in the 2022 Open Championship field. In order to become the first player to win three British Opens in a row at St. Andrews, Tiger Woods is a 60-1 long shot, according to Caesars Sportsbook. After a string of four top-five finishes in his last seven tournaments, Rory McIlroy has a 9-1 shot at winning the Open Championship in 2022. The PGA Tour predictions and betting advice from SportsLine’s proven golf model should be checked before making any 2022 Open Championship or PGA DFS tournament picks.

Mike McClure, SportsLine’s DFS pro, developed the model after the PGA Tour resumed play in June of 2020. Because of its consistent winning streak in major tournament wagers, it has amassed a profit of over $9,500 since then.

Thomas was one of the top picks to win the PGA Championship in 2022 according to McClure’s model. For the tournament as a whole, McClure’s best bets returned a total of nearly $800 in winnings. McClure’s model was all over Scheffler’s first major championship victory in his career at the 2022 Masters going into the final round.

Collin Morikawa was also one of McClure’s best bets to win the 2021 Open Championship outright, even though the odds were 40-1 against him. Rahm’s first major championship win at the 2021 US Open was also covered by the model. Despite the fact that Rahm was two strokes off the lead entering the weekend, the model still predicted that he would take home the trophy.

By the time the weekend rolls around, this model will have won eight majors in a row. Those who have stuck with it have seen enormous gains.

SportsLine ran 10,000 simulations of the 2022 British Open golf tournament, and the results were surprising. Visit SportsLine right now to see how you stack up against the competition.

The model predicts a major upset at the 2022 Open Championship: Rory McIlroy, the 9-1 favorite to win the British Open, finishes just outside the top three. In addition to winning 35 tournaments on the PGA and European Tours, the 31-year-old Northern Irishman has also won three major championships. While playing in St. Andrews, he finished third in the 2010 Open Championship, which he also won.

Despite his regular appearances in majors, his inconsistent play has cost him several victories. This season, he has at least one round of 67 or lower, but also one round of 73 or higher, in the three majors. One of the favorites to fade in British Open 2022 betting, according to the model, is him falling short once more.

Here’s something else to take a look at: An unlikely 35-1 longshot, Dustin Johnson makes a serious run at the championship. Anyone hoping to make a quick buck should keep an eye out for him. His decision to leave PGA Tour status after 24 victories to join the LIV Golf series made headlines earlier in the year. Since the LIV Golf series does not currently earn points, the former world number one has fallen to the 18th spot in the Official World Golf Ranking.

The most recent LIV Golf Series event was held in Portland, Oregon, and Johnson finished third there. He also finished in the top ten at the inaugural LIV Golf Series event in London. On the Saudi-sponsored tour, Johnson is currently ranked fourth in money won, with $2.65 million earned in just two starts. This year’s Open Championship comes after an eighth-place finish in the British Open last year. Johnson has finished in the top 10 four times in his 12 appearances at the Open Championship, including a second-place finish in 2011. Find out who else is in the running here.
