High odds on outsiders Garcia and Mickelson at the British Open with Betclic

35 times the money on Sergio Garcia - or how about 50.00 in odds on Phil Mickelson to lead after the first day? The  140th British Open is starting soon and bookies like Betclic are preparing for a flow of bets on the outsiders.

- The British Open will attract much more interest and bets compared to last summer with no major football tournament going, and the odds are really high on genuine outsiders, says Dan Vikman, PR Manager at Betclic.

The weather always plays its part and that is why some of the outsiders could come into play. Sergio Garcia who is priced at 35,00 to lead the field after the Round 1 is in excellent form at the moment and if he finds his putting range he could well be a surprise name at the top of the leaderboard. He could also be a good bet to finish in the top five priced at 6,50 with betclic.

Or if you think experience is key at the majors then former World no.1 Phil Mickelson is priced highly at 50,00 with Betclic to lead the major.

Betclic is also offering other specials such as for a hole-in-one. Can one of the field step up and hit the bottom of the cup from the tee? Betclic is offering 2,30 times the money for a hole-in-one at Royal St Georges.
