 Will Tiger Woods be able to win the British Open again this year, only the betting odds will tell.

2007 British Open betting odds, Tiger Woods favorite The 2007 British Open tee time is just a few days away, but the online betting websites are already being slammed with bets on the golf Championship. The odds posted by the sportsbooks could mean a big payout for the bettors this year.

 Tiger Woods is the favorite to win the 2007 British Open with odds published by the online bookmaker Bodog Sports (new window) of only 3/1. It's true that Woods won the last year's British Open, but he had a lot of excitement, with his baby daughter, and missing on quite a few tournaments. Let's face it, Tiger Woods is not as sharp on the green as he used to be. predicts that the 2007 British Open will elude Tiger Woods this year.

 Which could be good for bettors who are not die hard fans of the number one. When we compare the odds, Ernie Els comes second with the whopping odds on winning the Scottish turf at 12/1. This means that if you bet $10 on Els and he wins, you would pocked $120 extra. Not a bad payout, considering the experience of Ernie Els, who finished third at the Scottish Open two days ago, but showed great skills and is a definite contender for the British Open.

 And it's not just Els. A lot of names are trailing behind Tiger Woods on the books. Phil Mickelson has the odds on winning at 14/1, for example, and Mickelson finished second at the Scottish Open after bogeying at the playoff. Jim Furyk, who finished fourth at the 2006, holds betting odds on the 2007 British Open of 20/1! The betting odds on Justin Rose are 28/1. The win of Gregory Havret at the 2007 Scottish Open did nothing to improve his odds for the British - Havret is listed at 150/1.

 There will be a lot of anxiety at the sportsbooks' offices for a Tiger Woods victory. Because if he does not win the 2007 British Open, this could mean the worst day in the online betting for the year. If you agree with us that Tiger Woods will not win the British Open - head on to Bodog Sports and put your money where your month is, you won't have better odds than these for a long time.

The 2007 British Open will start on Thursday, July 19th at 7:00 am EST from the Carnoustie Golf Club in Carnoustie, Scotland. You can watch the British Open Championship on TNT.
