It's time to put your money where your mouth is, friends. After spending the last couple weeks looking at the lines and crunching numbers, we're only a few days away from the start of golf's oldest major championship — the British Open (or Open Championship).

As expected, Tiger Woods is still the betting favorite in Vegas at 8/1, with Rory McIlroy coming in a close second at 10/1. Despite his injury scare a couple weeks back at the French Open, Lee Westwood is still at 12/1, with Luke Donald coming in at a respectable 15/1.

If you don't like the taste of chalk, there are some big names with big odds on the board, including Geoff Ogilvy at 125/1 and Miguel Angel Jimenez at 150/1.

If you happen to be across the pond for the British Open, make sure you pop into a betting parlor and place a couple bets (it's legal, after all). Don't forget: Darren Clarke was 125/1 to win last year at Royal St. Georges, so anything is possible.

Here's a rundown of Las Vegas Hotel and Casino's top 10 to win the British Open (the rest of the odds, as well as matchups come after the jump):
