The 2018 British Open is all set to tee off at Carnoustie Golf Links in Angus, Scotland early Thursday morning. This prestigious event marks golf’s third major of the season, a tournament that could go down as perhaps the most exciting of the year if Carnoustie lives up to it’s chaotic,

After a U.S. Open in which no one finished at par or better for the week, golf fans can probably expect similar carnage to continue at Carnoustie. The British Open returns to the Scottish links known for its difficult conditions and a 1999 event that featured the worst final-hole disaster in golf history and a playoff at six-over par. This year’s winner at “Car-nasty” will need to overcome strong winds and navigate the course’s narrow fairways, deep bunkers, and those fun little burns that gobble up golf balls at a moment’s notice. So who will hoist the claret jug this time? Here’s our weekly look (with current odds via Westgate Las Vegas Superbook) at our favorite contenders.

Reason to pick: He’s the best player in the world and in the prime of his career so it makes sense that he’s the Vegas favorite. Plus, as we saw at Shinnecock (at least, for three of the four days), his low, piercing ball flight is perfect for contending at wind-swept links courses.

Cause for concern: What doesn’t make sense is DJ only having one major title as part of his 18 PGA Tour wins. Whether it be poor putting (Shinnecock) or poor decision making (Whistling Straits and Royal St. George’s), Johnson has let more than his fair share of big ones slip through his gifted hands. The good news is he’s still got plenty of time before being labeled this era’s Greg Norman.

Reason to pick: My pick to win the U.S. Open looked prophetic until a disastrous Sunday dropped him to T-10. Still, the World No. 3 rarely has an off week or weekend, and when he does (like at Shinnecock), his scrambling and putting skills have allowed him to hang around the leader board.
