Ladbrokes picks Els to win Open Championship

In towns that host the Open Championship, Ladbrokes betting houses are like Starbucks coffee shops. You can barely walk a block without bumping into one. In next month’s Open Championship at Royal Birkdale – the first major without Tiger Woods since 1996 – Ladbrokes gives Els the best shot at winning the title. Els, the 2002 champ from Muirfield, is listed at 12 to 1 while Sergio Garcia, last year’s runner up at Carnoustie, is listed at 14 to 1. Here are a few more odds in the long running tradition of legal sports gambling in the United Kingdom.
