Francesco Molinari won the 2018 Open Championship at Carnoustie. But the 38-year-old European Golfer of the Year in 2018 was a big long shot greater than +125000 when the 2021 Open Championship started.

But after opening Round 1 with a solid 2-under par, Molinari's adjusted odds to win the Open Championship are climbing.

FanDuel Sportsbook's adjusted odds to win now have Molinari at +8000. He'll have an earlier tee-time Friday to make a move at the leaders, Louis Oosthuizen (-6), Jordan Spieth (-5) and Brian Harman (-5).

Going back six decades at The Open Championship, 52 of the last 60 winners were at or within 4-shots of the lead after Round 1. Those trends and odds may have bettors looking towards longshot Molinari, who has shot 69 or better in three of his last five final rounds at The Open Championship.
