McIlroy's charge sees odds move just behind Spieth's ahead of Round 3

Jordan Spieth is the overwhelming favorite, but Rory McIlroy’s Friday charge has him sitting just behind the leader at 7-1 to win the Open Championship in Bodog‘s latest odds.

McIlroy’s 2-under-par 68 in difficult conditions at Royal Birkdale saw him move 52 spots up the leaderboard, and five strokes behind Spieth in a tie for sixth.

Spieth entered the day at 4-1 to win the tournament, and now sits 5-4 after another impressive showing at the links course. The Texan put together a 1-under-par 69, one of just eight rounds better than 70 on the day, to hold a two-shot lead over Matt Kuchar, who’s also listed at 7-1.

First-round co-leader Brooks Koepka ended with a 72 and sits three stokes off the pace. Oddsmakers still like him to contend this weekend, however, as his odds remain at 8-1, the same they were after Thursday’s opening round.

When searching for a value pick, Scotland’s Richie Ramsay jumps off the board at 40-1, despite sitting only four strokes off the lead.

Player Place Score to par Odds
Jordan Spieth 1 -6 5-4
Rory McIlroy T-6 -1 7-1
Matt Kuchar 2 -4 7-1
Brooks Koepka T-3 -3 8-1
Ian Poulter T-3 -3 16-1
Hideki Matsuyama T-10 E 28-1
Alex Noren T-10 E 40-1
Richie Ramsay 5 -2 40-1
Rickie Fowler T-24 +2 50-1
Rafa Cabrera-Bello T-10 E 50-1
Gary Woodland T-6 -1 50-1

MBS RECAP: Bonds Extend Gains in Super Quiet Conditions

Posted To: MBS Commentary

As expected, today could be better characterized as a highly-regulated narcotic sleep aid than an interesting trading day for bond markets. The dreams were sweet, at least, with 10yr yields drifting down to their best levels of the month–just under 2bps lower at 2.238% Fannie 3.5 MBS were up by an eighth of a point in the afternoon, but pulled back just a bit by the close. Lenders passed along at least as much in terms of price improvements (day over day), so it’s hard to take exception to the lack of interesting data. Bored market-watchers could discuss things like the death cross in 10yr yields (as in the attached video), or ponder the importance of political headlines (Spicer resignation… hint: not a market mover). If anything the noticeable (and I use the term very loosely) upticks…(read more)

Spieth booked as clear Open favorite after 65 in Round 1

Jordan Spieth is the clear betting favorite after a sizzling 65 in the first round of the Open Championship at Royal Birkdale on Thursday.

The two-time major champion sits at 4-1 to win the tournament in the updated listings by Jeff Sherman of Golfodds.com and the Westgate SuperBook. That represents a significant change from the 12-1 listing Spieth entered play with Thursday morning.

Brooks Koepka and Matt Kuchar sit tied with Spieth at 5-under par, and are currently 8-1 and 10-1, respectively, to hoist the Claret Jug on Sunday evening. Paul Casey’s 66 has him one stroke off the pace, and sees him jump to 12-1 to capture his first major title, while Hideki Matsuyama and Charl Schwartzel are both 15-1 after the opening 18 holes.

Player Place Score Odds
Jordan Spieth T-1 -5 4-1
Brooks Koepka T-1 -5 8-1
Matt Kuchar T-1 -5 10-1
Paul Casey T-4 -4 12-1
Hideki Matsuyama T-12 -2 15-1
Charl Schwartzel T-4 -4 15-1
Justin Thomas T-6 -3 20-1
Jon Rahm T-26 -1 20-1

MBS RECAP: Markets Had ECB Almost Perfectly Pegged

Posted To: MBS Commentary

Talk about your anticlimactic conclusions! It’s not that the European Central Bank (ECB) was likely to make any meaningful changes in its policy stance today, but it nonetheless served as an important opportunity to confirm or deny the notion that Draghi’s late June comments were a step in the direction of a tapering announcement–perhaps later this year. Draghi essentially denied it–saying they hadn’t even discussed the September meeting as a tapering announcement target, nor had they discussed it at all. That may or may not be factual. Certainly, we’ve seen newswires that suggest quite the opposite, such as this one from July 13th that did noticeable damage to bond markets: ECB COULD ANNOUNCE PLANS TO WIND DOWN QE AT ITS SEPT. 7 POLICY MEETING–ECB OFFICIALS Technically though…(read more)

R&A chief hopes Woods returns but laments 'the game also moves on'

The R&A held its annual press conference Wednesday at Royal Birkdale Golf Club, with chief executive Martin Slumbers speaking on behalf of the committee.

One of the many topics he touched on was the status of Tiger Woods, who was crowned “Champion Golfer of the Year” three times in his career, but is missing his seventh straight major championship this week.

“I would love to see him tee it up here again,” said Slumbers. “I hope he gets well. I hope he gets fit. I hope he falls back in love with golf. I hope he tees it up at The Open. He’d be extremely welcomed. But the game also moves on.

Slumbers spoke about Woods’ three wins, especially his triumph at St Andrews in 2000, where he won by eight shots, and never found any of the 112 bunkers on the Old Course during the tournament.

“The second half of my golfing life was watching Tiger play. I think the sport should be eternally grateful for the transformation he drove in golf.”

MBS RECAP: Eerily Quiet Ahead of Central Bank Announcements

Posted To: MBS Commentary

Much has been made of tomorrow’s European Central Bank (ECB) Announcement, mainly because of its proximity to ECB President Draghi’s comments on June 27th. That’s when Draghi said deflation was being replaced by reflation and that economic growth in the Eurozone has more upside risk than downside. Those are the words of a central banker who is sending up trial balloons for tapering. Bernanke sent up similar balloons in March 2013, but they were ignored due to an abrupt shift in economic data in April (and then suddenly recalled in alarming fashion when that data was heavily revised in May). Markets are much more alert about ECB tapering risks and they’ve reckoned it’s not happening in any sort of sweeping fashion just yet. Draghi’s late June comments threw traders for…(read more)
