The odds on Justin Thomas winning The Open Championship and the Alabama Crimson Tide winning the SEC Conference have been boosted by Caesars Sportsbook. In this article, we discuss some of the most profitable odds boosts available at various sportsbooks for the 2022 Open Championship.

We have an Alabama boost for The Open Championship via Caesars right in time for college football season. Boosts such as this involving Thomas and the Alabama football team are not an accident, as Thomas is a strong supporter of his alma mater. As a member of the golf team at Alabama, Thomas won a National Championship in 2013.

Here are the top boosted odds plays for The Open Championship:

Picks for British Open Top Odds Boosts

Thomas to win The Open & Alabama to win 2022 SEC Conference Title Game (+3300)

Regular odds: +3150BOOSTED ODDS: +3300

Having already placed some outright bets on Thomas to win The Open Championship, this odds boost from Caesars certainly caught my attention. Thomas has already won one major championship this season, the PGA Championship held at Southern Hills in May.

You will be in a power position should Thomas win The Open, as you hold a +3300 ticket for Alabama to win the SEC in college football. At several sportsbooks, Alabama is priced as short as -150 to win the conference as Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young returns to Tuscaloosa for his sophomore season.

McIlroy, Rahm, Scheffler and Zalatoris all make the cut (+125)

Regular odds:  -102BOOSTED ODDS: +125

Most of the time, when you see premade parlays with several golfers making the cut with boosted odds, there is one golfer who concerns you. As all four members of this group are elite golfers on the PGA Tour, I do not see this as a problem.

Only Will Zalatoris raises some concerns in this group as he has no history of playing at The Open Championship after withdrawing last year. Even though Zalatoris does not have any prior experience at the event, it is difficult not to bet on him to make the cut considering that he trails only McIlroy in strokes gained: tee-to-green this season.

Most sportsbooks do not allow parlays for "to make the cut" props, which really limits the potential interest in the prop because bettors do not want to lay -800 on an outright favorite. A parlay of this prop offered by Caesars, which has been boosted by 27 cents, should prove to be of interest to many bettors.

McIlroy to win the 2022 Open Championship (+1250)

Regular odds: +1000BOOSTED ODDS: +1250

McIlroy money has not been in short supply this week, as he represents one of the biggest liabilities for several sportsbooks, along with Tiger Woods. With this liability in mind, it is interesting to see Barstool Sportsbook boost the odds on McIlroy and welcome even more liability.

This is by far the best price available in the market for bettors who wish to buy outright tickets for McIlroy. The price for McIlroy at DraftKings Sportsbook and Caesars is +900, while the price on FanDuel Sportsbook is +1000. In sports betting, finding the best odds is critical, and this boost from Barstool offers you the best price on McIlroy to win this week.
