DJ remains favored, McIlroy drops back in latest odds for The Open


Dustin Johnson remains the favorite while Rory McIlroy's recent struggles have seen his odds fall from 12-1 to 20-1 in the latest betting odds for The Open Championship.

The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook has kept Johnson as the top player on the betting board despite missing the cut at the US Open, moving his odds from 10-1 to 12-1. Jordan Spieth remained at 12-1 and is now second on the board, while Jon Rahm, Rickie Fowler, and Sergio Garcia sit at 15-1 to win the event.

McIlroy is going through one of the worst stretches in recent memory, missing three of his past four cuts, and is no longer among the top five players on the board. He sits at 20-1 alongside Tommy Fleetwood, Justin Rose, and Hideki Matsuyama, while defending champion Henrik Stenson sits at 25-1 with world No. 6 Jason Day.
