2024 Open Championship Outright Odds: Scheffler the favorite

The 2024 Open Championship is the 152nd edition of the tournament, and reigning champion Brian Harman will look to retain the Claret Jug at Royal Troon.

Royal Troon has hosted The Open Championship nine times. The first was in 1923, when Englishman Arthur Havers won by one stroke. The latest was in 2016, when Henrik Stenson shot 264 over the four rounds to win by three strokes.

Let's take a look at the favorites to win the 2024 edition.

2024 Open Championship Outright Odds

Scottie Scheffler


Rory McIlroy


Ludvig Aberg


Xander Schauffele


Bryson DeChambeau


Collin Morikawa


Tommy Fleetwood


Scottie Scheffler has won six tournaments in 2024, so he is the unsurprising favorite to win the 2024 Open Championship at +500.

After a disappointing T41 at the U.S. Open in June, the world's best player bounced back at the Travelers a week later, defeating Tom Kim in a playoff to secure his sixth tour victory of the year.

Scheffler is yet to impose his dominance at The Open, however, with finishes of T8-T21-T23 in three times at the event.

Rory McIlroy is second-favorite at +800. He won The Open back in 2014 at Royal Liverpool, and will be desperate to recreate that feeling now more than 10 years on from his last major title.

The Northern Irishman is expected to be re-couped both mentally and physically for the fourth and final major of the year, as McIlroy has just returned from three weeks off following his late meltdown at the U.S. Open last month.

24-year-old sensation Ludvig Aberg (+1300) and 2024 PGA Championship winner Xander Schauffele (+1500) are next up at third and fourth in the betting.

Aberg is in fine form entering the week, having finished T4 at the Scottish Open after leading the field for much of the tournament. The Swede has two top-15s in three career major appearances (including a T2 at The Masters), so it's clear he's on the doorstep when it comes to winning a major championship.

That was the narrative around Schauffele, who, after years of falling just short at golf's biggest events, finally won his first major at the 2024 PGA Championship at Valhalla.

Xander has proven his merit in links golf, having won the 2022 Scottish Open and finishing T2 at the 2018 Open. The American has finished 8th or better at all three majors in 2024.

The man who beat out Rory at Pinehurst, Bryson DeChambeau, is a +1700 shot alongside Collin Morikawa.

Bryson, now a two-time major champion, has not played his best at The Open, with his best finish coming in 2022 with a T8 at the Old Course at St. Andrews.

Morikawa amazingly lifted the Claret Jug in his first ever Open Championship outing in 2021 at Royal St. George's, defeating Jordan Spieth by two strokes. The 27-year-old has missed the cut at back-to-back Opens since then, but enters this week amongst the favorites with seven top-10s on the season.

Englishman Tommy Fleetwood (+2200) is still in search of both his first career major win and his first career PGA Tour win.

Fleetwood is expected to be among the leaders all week, but can he make the extra push? He's finished top-10 at three of the last five Opens, including a solo second in 2019. The 33-year-old also has a top-five at all four majors.

Two other names to note are defending champion Brian Harman (+7500), who can become the first player to win back-to-back Opens since Padraig Harrington in 2007 and 2008, and Robert MacIntyre (+3000), the 27-year-old Scot who has shot up in the betting after winning the Scottish Open this past weekend.
