I find the following link opens directly in the Excel client application: https://[company].sharepoint.com/sites/[sitename]/[libraryname]/Book.xlsx.
Note, I deleted the extension after the filename.
Library is set to open in the client app, not in the browser (Advanced Settings)
Library is in either Modern or Classic mode.
To open from the library into the Excel client by default, only Classic appears to respect the preference in Advanced Settings -- Modern ignores it.
