2009 British Open Power Rankings

Want to know who to bet on at the 2009 British Open?   Why not hone in one the 2009 British Open Power Rankings.

BetUS.com supplied its own on Monday. 

Obviously, ranked the best is a "no brainer" and that would be Tiger Woods.

D.S. Williamson of BetUS.com:

"El Tigre won the Brit Open in 2005 and 2006. He finished 12th in 2007 but due to injury missed the Open in 2008. Tiger had a terrible U.S. Open, having to play through the worst weather on both Thursday and Friday, and will be looking to win the third major of the year. He was fantastic in his warm-up tournament to the Open, the AT&T National where he held off Anthony Kim and Hunter Mahan. He's worth being the favorite but at +175 he might not be worth a wager."

And why not?  The payout is still close to $200 for every $100 bet.

The second highest of the BetUS.com 2009 British Open Power Rankings was the "field" option.  Gambling911.com had previously reported on how much more enticing BetUS.com's "field" choices were especially since they pay out better than most other online bookmakers - $600 for every $100 bet.

"The Field might be the best bet in the sportsbook right now because the golfers that gamblers get should probably be going off as single wagers. Lucas Glover, the U.S. Open winner, is one of the golfers in the field right now. So is Rory McIlroy. The young Irishman can hit the ball as far off the tee as anybody in the sport and if he gets his short game going, the British Open could be his coming out party."

Padraig Harrington is listed 3rd among the BetUS.com 2009 British Open Power Rankings.

"Harrington has won the British Open the last two times it has been played in both 2007 and 2008. This year hasn't been kind to Padraig who was almost shameful in the U.S. Open and hasn't really done anything on the PGA Tour yet, but Harrington always picks it up this time of year and at the odds, he has to be considered for a third victory in a row in this tournament."

Harrington would pay out $1200 for every $100 bet.

Most of the online bookmakers have Sergio Garcia right behind Tiger Woods. 

"Garcia finally came to life on the PGA Tour in the last Major, the U.S. Open, by finishing 10th. He followed that up with a terrible Traveler's Championship by finishing 43rd, but like most of the Europeans, he will know Turnberry better than the Americans and could be tough."

Garcia would also pay out $1200 for every $100 bet.

Paul Casey, Ernie Els, Lee Westwood, Anthony Kim, Henrik Stenson and Geoff Ogilvy round out the remaining golfers in the power rankings. 

Kim would pay $2500 for every $100 bet at BetUS.com, although you can get him for much better payout odds elsewhere. 

"Kim has been turning it on lately finishing 16th in the U.S. Open, 11th in the Traveler's Championship and 3rd in the AT&T National. Kim has the ability, but will his maturity get in the way of success at Turnberry?"
