US Open 2018 Betting Tips
June 12, 2018
The 2018 US Open will be held at Shinnecock Hills in New York from Thursday 14th to Sunday 17th June and promises to be a fascinating tournament with many of the game’s top players going into it in decent shape.
With tee times for the opening two rounds of the 118th US Open having been released, one grouping in particular catches the eye in terms of the calibre of the trio of players featured.
Alongside defending champion Brooks Koepka, there’s also Bubba Watson (two-time winner of the Masters Tournament and winner of the LA Open and the WGC-Match Play Championship this year) and Australia’s Jason Day (winner of the 2015 PGA Championship and who was also victorious in 2018 in the Farmers Insurance Open, at Torrey Pines back in January and in the Wells Fargo Championship last month).
Koepka has also come into form of late (runner-up at the Fort Worth Invitational), having missed the start of the year through injury and the three Major winners could potentially inspire each other into shooting low opening rounds to leave themselves in contention for the title over the weekend.
Dustin Johnson, US Open champion in 2016, goes into the tournament as favourite at 9/1 (10.00) with PalmerBet, but there is also plenty of interest in the following players.
Top US Open Golf Betting Odds
- Rory McIlroy (14/1 at bet365)
- Justin Thomas (18/1 with PalmerBet)
- Jordan Spieth (18/1 at bet365)
- Jon Rahm (20/1 with Centrebet)
- Rickie Fowler (20/1 at Crownbet)
- Brooks Koepka (25/1 at Betfair)
Justin Rose (who won the Fort Worth Invitational ahead of Koepka) is also a standout 25/1 with PalmerBet, which looks very attractive and the same bookie has Tiger Woods at 33/1 should you believe that the three-time former US Open champion (2000, 2002 and 2008) still has another Major in him.
Jason Day himself is a 18/1 shot with William Hill and looks worth an each-way punt given that he’s in decent form of late and has gone well in this tournament previously, finishing runner-up in 2011 and tied second in 2013. The each-way betting market with William Hill offers 1/5 odds on a place 1,2,3,4,5 and 6.
