Tiger Woods becomes big favorite after first round at British Open
Tiger Woods, Phil Mickleson and Zach Johnson are your heavy favorites for the 2013 British Open after one round.
Zach Johnson led after the first round of the British Open on Thursday but that doesn't mean he's the favorite. That would be Tiger Woods, who after shooting an opening-round 69 -- and despite trailing Johnson by three -- saw his odds go from 8-1 to 7-2.
Here's a look at the rest, with original odds in parentheses (thank to Bovada for getting these to us so quickly):
Tiger Woods : 7-2 (8-1)
: 8-1 (18-1)
Zach Johnson : 9-1 (80-1)
: 14-1 (40-1)
Dustin Johnson : 16-1 (40-1)
Adam Scott : 16-1 (20-1)
Henrik Stenson : 16-1 (40-1)
The age spectrum
: 20-1 (150-1)
Lee Westwood : 22-1 (33-1)
Angel Cabrera : 28-1 (100-1)
Likely won't win it
: 33-1 (80-1)
Miguel Angel Jimenez : 33-1 (150-1)
Martin Laird : 33-1 (80-1)
Rafael Cabrera-Bello : 33-1 (125-1)
Would be shocking
: 40-1 (22-1)
Hunter Mahan : 40-1 (66-1)
Bubba Watson : 40-1 (66-1)
Bet on Day!
: 50-1 (33-1)
Shiv Kapur : 50-1 (500-1!)
Like I said above, Jason Day is not a bad bet there. He's 2 over, which is only seven back and it's not like he's incapable of a 64 or 65 on Friday. Is it likely? No. But I'd put a pound or two on 50-1 odds.
He certainly has a better chance to be there Sunday than Shiv Kapur.
