U.S. Open Predictions

Golf Tournament Predictions: U.S. Open Championship 6/14/17

The 2017 U.S. Open Championship tees off Thursday morning. Here are three golfers we like to contend for this major championship.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Dustin Johnson is listed as the favorite this weekend, as he is getting 15/2 odds. Other short odds to win are Rory McIlroy (12/1), Jason Day (14/1) and Jordan Spieth (14/1). The U.S. Open Championship takes place June 15-18 from Erin Hills in Hartford, Wisconsin.

Bet on the U.S. Open Championship

Dustin Johnson has been the top golfer in the world for the better part of a year, as he has six wins since 2016 and has three already this year. He also has seven top-10 finishes in 11 events. He is coming off a missed cut in his last tournament, but that doesn’t concern me. Johnson has been great at the U.S. Open in recent years. He won the championship last year for his first major and finished second in 2015 and fourth in 2014. This is a tournament he shines in and he is still playing better than anyone in the world.

Adam Scott isn’t having his best year so far, as he is winless in 2017 through 10 events. Still, he has placed in the top 10 in four events and missed just one cut. The U.S. Open is an event that Scott has continually managed to be in the mix for and he has 28/1 odds to win this weekend. Scott has finished in the top 10 in this tournament four of the last five years, including two top-10 finishes. He finished ninth at Augusta for The Masters this year as well. I think Scott will do well with this course and make a run at his second major.

Brandt Snedeker is a long shot this weekend with 100/1 odds, but I think there is a lot of value there. Snedeker hasn’t won a major, but has continually put himself in the mix. He has finished in the top 10 of a major eight times in his career, including four times at the U.S. Open. He missed the cut a year ago, but was eighth in 2015 and ninth in 2014. This year, Snedeker has competed in 12 events and is winless, but has three-top 10 finishes and has finished 30th or better in eight events. With such long odds, you are just looking for someone who can make the cut and possibly break out on Saturday with a big round. I think Snedeker can be that guy.
