2012 British Open Head-To-Head Odds
We have reached the third Major Championship of the year, as the 2012 British Open gets set to get underway on Thursday from Royal Lytham & St. Annes. Plenty of storylines surround the tournament coming into the week, obviously highlighted by whether the fact Tiger Woods will end his Major championship drought.
Woods has not won a Major since the U.S Open in 2008. He was in contention at the U.S Open last month holding the 36-hole lead, but a poor weekend finish left him on the outside of Webb Simpson’s victory.
Coming into the week, Woods is atop the odds to win the 2012 British Open, but oddsmakers are jumping all over the field by installing a number of different types of betting lines.
One of the popular betting lines are Head-to-Head British Open Odds. These head-to-head lines match two players against each other for the duration of the tournament. the player who records the better finish obviously wins the line.
Let’s take a look at a couple, where Woods is paired against some of the other favorites going into the week.
Lee Westwood has been set as the second favorite to win, though it would be his first-ever Major Championship victory. Going up against Woods head-to-head on the betting line has him in the underdog role, though it’s not by much. In fact, Woods is only a -130 favorite to finish better, while a wager on Westwood would pay out at even on the amount wagered.
Then we have the Woods vs Rory McIlroy British Open betting line, which is another one that we expected. The gap has widened between this line and the one with Westwood though, piggybacking off of the fact that McIlroy simply isn’t at the top of his game right now. But all it takes is a couple of good rounds strung together. Still, Woods is set at -160 on the payout to record the higher finish, while McIlroy is set on the other side of the betting line, going off at +125.
There are a number of head-to-head lines this week as well featuring a bunch of notable players. Luke Donald is going against Westwood, Dustin Johnson and Hunter Mahan, Donald and McIlroy, Phil Mickelson and Sergio Garcia and many more.
