No Solid Favourite for the US Open

No Solid Favourite for the US Open 1

As soon as I tell you that both Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy can currently be backed at huge odds of 9/1 to win the US Open this year, you will get an idea of just how open an event that major golf tournament is this year.

However, that does mean that there are some much higher and better valued odds attached to all of the other golfers taking part in the US Open this year, and that is bound to be of interest to those of you out there that rates the chances of any of those other golfers.

It could be the case that you simply fancy backing the second, third or fourth favourites to win and hope that any of them goes on to win, however the current state of the early betting will certainly see you picking up some juicy odds on all three of them

You will still be returning a decent profit if you do back all three of them and either of them go on to win the US Open this year for the odds attached to them are high, and for reference those two golfers are Brooks Koepka at, 10/1 Tiger Woods at 12/1 and Patrick Cantlay at 18/1

Get 8 Places Paid When Betting Each-Way

You may be much more inclined to back a golfer each-way, much more so when I let you know that bookies such as BetFred are paying out to eight, yes eight places on all each-way bets struck with them on this year’s US Open.

In fact, that bookies is paying out at one fifth of the win odds as part of their each-way betting terms too, and as such that does open the door for you to place an each-way type of bet on a  handful of golfers that you do fancy the chance of this year.

Some Other Golfers to Consider Backing

You will be taking your chances no matter which golfers you end up betting on this year, however let me now give you an insight into those that I would say have a slightly better chance of winning or getting placed at the very least.

There is Jordan Spieth at 22/1 who could be worth a small speculative punt along with Justin Thomas who is 25/1, and you do have the chance of betting on Justin Rose, Rickie Fowler and Xander Schauffele who are all 28/1.

If you do live in the hope that you can pick out some of the golfers with even better odds attached to them in the hope they will win or get placed, you should get your money’s worth out of betting on the likes of Jon Rahm, Adam Scott and Hideki Matsuyama all of whom can be backed at odds of 30/1, and some of you may just prefer the chances of golfers such as Matt Kuchar, Tommy Fleetwood and Jason Day at 35/1 too.
