2024 Open Championship odds, predictions: Scottie Scheffler projection from golf model that hit last 3 majors

Scottie Scheffler has quickly made a name for himself since joining the PGA Tour in 2020. He’s recorded 12 victories on tour, including six in 2024. He won his second major championship at the Masters in April and he’ll enter the 2024 Open Championship as the betting favorite. According to the latest 2024 Open Championship odds, Scheffler is the 5-1 favorite (risk $100 to win $500). The No. 1 ranked player in the world is followed by Rory McIlroy (13-2) and Bryson DeChambeau (11-1) on the PGA odds board. This year’s British Open begins on Thursday, July 18, from Royal Troon in Scotland.

Other top contenders in the Open Championship 2024 field include Xander Schauffele (14-1), Ludvig Aberg (14-1), Viktor Hovland (16-1) and Collin Morikawa (18-1). Should your 2024 Open Championship bets include backing Scheffler to lift the Claret Jug, or will a longshot like Jordan Spieth (47-1), Jason Day (50-1) or Justin Rose (100-1) win the final major of the year? Before locking in any 2024 Open Championship picks or Scottie Scheffler props, be sure to see the golf predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

Our proprietary model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been red-hot since the PGA Tour resumed in June 2020. In fact, the model is up nearly $9,500 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.

This same model has also nailed a whopping 13 majors entering the weekend, including the 2024 Masters — its third Masters in a row — and this year’s PGA Championship and U.S. Open. Anyone who has followed it has seen massive returns. 

Now with the Open Championship 2024 field taking shape, SportsLine simulated the tournament 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected leaderboard.

Top 2024 Open Championship predictions 

One major surprise: Morikawa, an 18-1 longshot, makes a strong run at the title. Morikawa won the British Open in his debut at the major in 2021, which was his second major win after emerging at the 2020 PGA Championship. He’s cemented his status as someone who elevates his game in the biggest of tournaments as over his last 17 starts at majors, he has more finishes inside the top 10 (nine) than outside of it (eight). He’s been in contention at all three majors this season, with top-5 finishes at the Masters and PGA Championship, in addition to a 14th place at the U.S. Open.

Morikawa has arguably been the hottest player on tour, outside of Scheffler, over the last three months. His worst finish over his last eight individual events is 16th place, and half of those eight starts have resulted in top 5s. With top-five rankings in strokes gained: total, driving accuracy percentage, putting average and scoring average (adjusted), Morikawa has no major holes in his game. Few have the combination of recent success on tour, strong metrics and a winning history at this major, so Morikawa is a steal at his current odds for The Open 2024 bets.

The model has also examined where Scheffler finishes at the 2024 Open Championship. Scheffler has racked up six wins already this season, which includes his second major championship at the Masters in April. He’s finished outside the top-10 just twice in 15 starts season and is coming off a victory at the Travelers Championship in his latest start.

He’s been able to dominate the opposition thanks to his incredible ball striking. Scheffler enters the 2024 Open Championship ranked first in greens in regulation percentage (74.14%) and strokes gained: approach to green (1.485). He’s also been effective on the green, ranking first in putting average (1.687) and 25th in putts per round (28,38). The model just locked in its Scottie Scheffler Open Championship picks here.

The model is also targeting two other golfers with odds of 18-1 or longer to make a strong run at the title. Anyone who backs these longshots could hit it big. You can only see the model’s picks here.
