Mcilroy is on an incredible run right now, playing some fantastic golf. He's grabbed a top-20 finish in seven consecutive starts, which includes five top-10 finishes. And of those, four were top-5 finishes, along with one win.

He's also no stranger to success in this tournament at St. Andrews. In 2010, as mentioned above, McIlroy placed T-3 and tied the best Round 1 score in Open Championship history. Pairing his talents, recent performances and past course success, I'll take the plus money and go for McIlroy to finish Top-5 at +270.
