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)
Phil Mickelson: 8-1 (18-1)
Zach Johnson: 9-1 (80-1)
Brandt Snedeker: 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
Jordan Spieth: 20-1 (150-1)
Lee Westwood: 22-1 (33-1)
Angel Cabrera: 28-1 (100-1)
Likely won't win it
Francesco Molinari: 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
Graeme McDowell: 40-1 (22-1)
Hunter Mahan: 40-1 (66-1)
Bubba Watson: 40-1 (66-1)
Bet on Day!
Jason 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.
