British Open 2022: golf props, expert DFS picks, optimal sleepers, head-to-head matchups, single and over pick


Tee times and groupings have been announced for The Open Championship 2022, and one of the featured groups will depart at 4.58am ET from the Old Course in St Andrews. This trio of golfers includes the two players with the shortest odds at The Open Championship 2022, Rory McIlroy (9-1) and Xander Schauffele (14-1), as well as defending champion Collin Morikawa (25-1) . These Open Championship 2022 odds come courtesy of Caesars Sportsbook, which also has Tiger Woods as a 60-1 long shot as he returns to competition. The three-time British Open champion will start at 9:59 a.m. ET alongside Max Homa (50-1) and US Open winner Matt Fitzpatrick (16-1).

In addition to playing the odds, there are also plenty of prop bets from the British Open 2022 and PGA DFS tournaments to take part in.

Jim Holliman has been covering the sport for nearly 25 years and, like SportsLine’s other pundits, he’s nailed pick after pick in 2022.

Now the pundits have their sights set on the British Open 2022 field and have just revealed their best PGA prop bets. You can head over to SportsLine now to see all of the Open Championship 2022 prop picks from the experts, ties, head-to-head matchups, best bets and the finished first pick.

Best Open Championship 2022 prop bets

Gates, who has been a top-10 pick all year, confidently backs Shane Lowry to finish in the top 10 of the Open Championship 2022 final standings at odds of +240. The 2019 British Open champion has three top-five finishes this year, including a third-place finish at the Masters. The 35-year-old ranks eighth on the PGA Tour in approach strokes won (0.748) and total strokes won (1.615). He is 10th in strokes gained from tee to green (1.264).

Gates expects another strong performance for the Irishman this week at St. Andrews. “What Lowry is doing is posting very low scores and struggling. With four top-10 finishes this season, I was expecting a fifth in the final major of the year,” Gates told SportsLine. See more Open Championship 2022 accessories here.

Players will fade at The Open Championship 2022

Huge shock: Holliman is fading away PGA Championship winner Justin Thomas even though he is widely regarded as one of the top contenders for the British Open 2022. However, Thomas has struggled mightily on the courses of ties throughout his career, as evidenced by his miss at the Scottish Open last week. Besides his two PGA Championships, Thomas has two top-10 finishes at the US Open and the Masters, but he has failed to reach the top-10 in five career starts at the British Open.

Thomas’ biggest flaw in his game is his accuracy off the tee, where he ranks 168th in driving accuracy percentage (55.28%). This weakness will only be amplified in St Andrews, which is infamous for its high winds which can destroy a seemingly straight ride. Holliman readily admits that Thomas doesn’t have the temper to stay calm if that happens, a major reason he isn’t high on the PGA Champion this week. Instead, Holliman backs several other golfers, including a 35-1 long shot here.
