It is of course the golfers that have shown true form time and time again in golf tournaments across the globe that are currently leading the betting markets on the 2019 running of the US Open, however there is no great deal of confidence in any of them!
That is something that will very quickly become apparent when you look at the current state of the betting markets ion that major golf tournament, for the two golfers heading that betting market are Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy at odds of around the 9/1 mark.
The odds grow every so slightly on the next three golfers in the betting, and you will probably heard of most of them if you do follow golf, they are Brooks Koepka at 10/1, Tiger Woods at 12/1 and you can currently back the likes of Patrick Cantlay at 18/1.
Be aware that you are not only going to be restricted to backing any golfer outright or backing them each-way which you will find out more about below, but many bookies do offer a range of additional novelty type bets on this tournament too.
Eight Places Paid Each-Way
With such a huge number of golfers that are going to be taking part in this years US Open, that means that bookies are being a tad more generous when it comes to their each-way betting terms on this event, which could mean you will be tempted to place an each-way bet with some of them.
Take for example out top rated BetFred betting site, if you get a move on and place an each-way bet with them on this year’s US Open then they are going to be paying out to eight places at one fifth of the win odds too.
Other Golfers That Could Win the US Open
I will leave it up to your skill and judgement to try and work out just which golfers to back this year, suffice to say though that there are plenty of them to pick and choose from.
You have the likes of Jordan Spieth at 22/1 and Justin Thomas is 25/1, there are golfers such as Justin Rose, Rickie Fowler and Xander Schauffele all on offer at odds of 28/1 and you could also place a few small each-way bets on Jon Rahm, Adam Scott and Hideki Matsuyama who can all be backed at odds of 30/1
As for those that have an outsider chance of success this year, but wouldn’t need too much of an improvement in their current form to get into one of the placed positions at the end of the tournament well three that do spring to mind include Matt Kuchar, Tommy Fleetwood and Jason Day all of whom are very easy to back at odds as high as 35/1.
Just do make sure that you do some hunting around and also consider checking out the odds on betting sites such as Betfair as you may just find some much higher odds being offered to you by other users of that betting exchange.
