For the first time all year Tiger Woods is not the favorite to win the 2013 British Open. But he still has 9-4 odds, which is just behind 54-hole leader Lee Westwood's 2-1.

You would think the winner would be one of those two guys but as history has shown us, the last 20 major winners have been all over the place on Saturday night.

Here's a look at your favorites:

The Favorite

Lee Westwood: 2-1

Tiger

Tiger Woods: 9-4

Other favorites

Adam Scott: 7-1
Hunter Mahan: 7-1

Fringe favorites

Henrik Stenson: 20-1
Phil Mickelson: 20-1
Angel Cabrera: 28-1

Hanging on

Ryan Moore: 33-1
Zach Johnson: 33-1

We'd be shocked

Brandt Snedeker: 66-1
Dustin Johnson : 66-1
Francesco Molinari: 66-1
Jason Day: 66-1
Sergio Garcia: 66-1

It feels like all those guys at 66-1 (OK, not Sergio, but the others) are worth the value they give you at 66-1. They'll be going off early and any one of them could post a 65 or 66 and put the pressure on the leaders in the final few groups.
