It often is the case that as soon as the US Open is about to start there will be a late flurry of bets placed on the golfer’s punters fancy the chances of winning hat major golf tournament, and this year will be just the same.
However, this is one of those golf tournaments that always has some much higher odds attached to the golfers taking part in it, due in no small part to the sheer number of them taking part in it, and both Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy at 9/1 are the two favourites to win it.
When you take those two joining favourites out of the equation, there are still plenty of other vastly experienced golfers any of whom could go on to win this event or if you back them each-way make it into a place position too.
As for who the much more fancied golfers are apart from the two joint favourites, well you can back Brooks Koepka at 10/1, Tiger Woods at 12/1 and I do know there has been a little bit of support coming in for Patrick Cantlay who is available at generous odds of 18/1.
One Fifth the Win Odds to 8 Places Each-way
As you are going to have to beat the odds if you place an outright winner bet on this year’s staging of the US Open, there is plenty of value to be had by betting each-way instead, much more so if you place such bets and wagers over at the BetFred sportsbooks.
They are paying out to eight places if you place and each-way bet with then via their online betting platform or their mobile betting app, and those eight places are being paid out at one fifth of the win odds too, so there is certainly some value to be had there for sure.
Who Else Has a Chance of Winning?
Any golfer could find some amazing form as they are playing in the 2019 US Open, and some golfers that are always worth keeping a very close eye in the betting include Jordan Spieth who is around the 22/1 mark to win and also Justin Thomas who may land the spoils at odds as high as 25/1 too.
Three golfers that some punters will be backing each-way at odds right now of 28/1 are Justin Rose, Rickie Fowler and Xander Schauffele and there is some value to be had by taking an each-way chance on the likes of Jon Rahm, Adam Scott and Hideki Matsuyama and each off them can be backed at odds of 30/1.
I think it’s a fair bet that those golfers that I have named up above are going to be the best ones to concentrate your betting efforts on, but I would never underestimate the very real chances of golfers such as Matt Kuchar, Tommy Fleetwood and Jason Day who can all be backed at odds right now of 35/1 doing well this year also.
