The British Open has cruelly eluded Adam Scott but punters with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au are forecasting a change of fortune for the Australian, who’s been backed into a $15 equal favourite with Englishman Justin Rose to claim the Claret Jug.

Scott has been more than twice as popular in dollar terms than the next best, German Martin Kaymer ($23), and after finishing in the top 3 on the past two occasions, Scott is a $1.73 favourite to be the leading Aussie at Royal Liverpool.
Jason Day is a $3.50 chance to head the Australians, but Marc Leishmann has been the best backed in that market coming in from $17 to $11.
Sportsbet is getting behind our boys, offering a juicy price of $14 for any of the 8 Australians to lead at the end of the first round.
“One punter in particular is keen on Scott, having $725 on the Aussie to win the tournament at $15 to collect over $10,000,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
