Let's face it: No one can predict the future.
Though Vegas tries to do so with their predictions and odds, ultimately some decisions leave sports fans scratching their heads.
Golf could be arguably the most difficult sport to place odds on. Tiger Woods is not as much of a lock as he used to be, and strong up-and-comers are knocking at the door of elite status.
Take Rory McIlroy, for instance. The 21-year-old has placed in the top 20 at three of the four majors. Will the British Open be his breakthrough?
At the same time, proven veterans like Phil Mickelson and Ernie Els are still forces to be reckoned with, and Vegas needs to account for them.
So where did the oddsmakers get it right and where did they fail? Read on to find the 10 most likely candidates to emerge victorious at the British Open.
