2017 U.S Open Betting Tips

June 15, 2017 by Posted in Betting Tips

The 2017 U.S Open will begin Thursday night from Erin Hill Golf Course in Wisconsin and reigning champion Dustin Johnson will be seeking his second major title as he opens the market as favourite.

The Erin Hills Golf Course has been closed for renovation for the last ten months in preparation for the event and it promises to be a lengthy course with the maximum yardage over the four days set at 7,900 yards.

With the potential for four par 5s on some days, length will be a massive advantage, which plays right into the hands of the defending champ, Johnson.

The one thing that could be holding Johnson back coming into the tournament could be the back injury that kept him out of the Masters earlier in the year. Since then, Johnson has finished in the top ten just once in four events including one missed cut. In saying that, he has been the dominant golfer in the world since his 2016 U.S Open win and with his extra length and his ability to exploit the wind and at $8 he is a great chance to win.

TIP: Dustin Johnson to win – $8 at Sportsbet


Adam Scott is another long, clean hitting fairway player who is a mainstay in the top few golfers in the world in terms of greens in regulation. GIR will be crucial over the weekend with the long course and high winds, Scott has the ability to hit his irons as far as anyone in the game and at $31 should be in the mix.

TIP: Adam Scott to win – $31 at Ladbrokes

With so many players in the field it’s always hard to pick a winner at the major tournaments. The big six combination of Jason Day, Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy, Ricky Fowler and Jon Rahm have won six of the last 12 majors and at $2.46, getting all of them is great value.

TIP: Johnson, Spieth, McIlroy, Fowler, Day or Ham to win – $2.46 at Sportsbet
