The Open Odds: Scottie Scheffler and Rory McIlroy joint-favourites

With major season almost upon us, we look at the odds for The Open, with Rory McIlroy and Scottie Scheffler joint-favourites at 8/1.

It's the only major where Scheffler is not the outright favourite, and it's the only major - remarkably - that Scheffler has finished outside the top 20 more than once in, and even those two finishes were T21 and T23 after a T8 on debut at Royal St George's.

While The Open is one of the three majors McIlroy has been successful at, he's got a decidedly mixed record on the links. After his 2014 win at Royal Liverpool, McIlroy posted three consecutive top-5s before going MC-T46, bouncing back with a solo third at St Andrews in an Open he ought to have won, before recording another top-10 when returning to Hoylake.
