Open Championship odds 2022: Rory McIlroy, Xander Schauffele sit atop the odds board
Having won in each of his last two starts at the Travelers Championship and the Scottish Open, Xander Schauffele is, naturally, one of the top two favorites to win this week's Open Championship at the Old Course. But he's not the solo favorite, a designation that belongs to Rory McIlroy (9-1, DraftKings), who last won a major in 2014, the PGA Championship at Valhalla.
McIlroy, who also won the Open Championship in 2014 at Royal Liverpool, is entering this week on a run of seven consecutive top-20 finishes, one a victory at the RBC Canadian Open and another a runner-up in the Masters. His worst finish during that stretch came in his most recent start, the Travelers Championship, where he tied for 19th.
As for Schauffele, who is 12-1 on the DraftKings Sportsbook, he's still in search of his first major title. Schauffele has previously played in four Open Championships, making the cut in all four and earning a T-2 finish at the 2018 Open at Carnoustie.
Scottie Scheffler (14-1), Jon Rahm (16-1), Jordan Spieth (16-1), Justin Thomas (16-1) and Matthew Fitzpatrick (18-1) round out the top of the odds board. Former Open champion Shane Lowry is at 22-1, while reigning Players champion Cameron Smith is all the way down at 28-1. Patrick Cantlay, who, like Schauffele, has yet to win a major championship, is 20-1.
