Who is betting what with the British Open?  The 2009 British Open Betting odds give us some clue as we can watch drastic line changes.  Remember, it is pertinent to lock in odds you like now otherwise they are subject to change.

Typically about half the betting action will be going Tiger Woods way.  It doesn't matter what line the oddsmakers attach to him.

SBG Global had him at 2/1 odds or +200, paying out $200 for every $100 bet.

Lee Westwood is getting some decent action, now with +2900 odds.  He had been getting close to +4000.

Westwood is an English professional golfer. He is one of the few golfers who has won tournaments on every continent, including victories on the European Tour and the PGA Tour. He was named player of the year for the 1998 and 2000 seasons, winning the later year's Order of Merit. He has represented Europe for the last six consecutive Ryder Cups. He spent over 150 weeks in the top 10 of the Official World Golf Rankings between 1998 and 2001 and returned to the top 10 at the end of the 2008 season.

 

On Playing at Turnberry, Westwood said:  "I liked what I saw on Tuesday when I played it," he said. "Like every major, every facet of your game is going to have to be on song, but it is going to be a good course for a long straight driver."

Ian Poulter is also getting some good action, now with odds that would pay $2900 for every $100 bet, whereas before he was listed at around +3500.

Ian Poulter is an English golfer who is a member of the world's top two professional golf tours, the U.S. based PGA Tour and the European Tour. He is the touring professional for Woburn Golf and Country Club which is situiated in Buckinghamshire.

His highest placement in a Major Championship was 2nd at the 2008 Open Championship, hence, the reason why he has such short odds. 

"I haven't played a lot of the Open courses until the week that I've actually been there and I seem to do OK," Poulter said.  "I did pretty well at Birkdale last year [he finished runner-up to Padraig Harrington].

"As long as you do your homework, so you know the layout and how the course is going to be set up, and you've played at least one practice round, it's just about executing the shots that you have pre-planned."

Then there are Trevor Immelman and Hunter Mahan, both initially listed around +5000 odds, now sitting at +2850 each.

Also jumping up the ranks among odds listings are Ross Fisher and Rory McIlroy, both now listed with +2850 odds as well after opening around +5500
