US Open Golf Odds

Online sports betting is not yet active in Florida. This page will be updated with the latest promos, news and odds once Florida sportsbooks launch.

All golf majors attract plenty of betting action, but things really get intense during the US Open due to its unique draw, deep field, and truly special courses.

With around 150 players in the field and almost half of them making the cut, you can expect a breakthrough performance at almost every US Open. That means excellent opportunities to find and profit off of a timely futures bet. You can always play it safe and bet on a couple of favorites, as there’s a noticeable trend of players that repeatedly play well at the Open, and those that don’t.

Whichever approach you choose, check our US Open betting guide for Florida below to help you get your bets down.

Odds-on favorites for the US Open

Even before the U.S. Open begins, Florida sportsbooks will allow you to place outright winner bets early. If you spot some good early odds on one of these expected favorites, don’t be afraid to jump on them.

Jon Rahm

The 2021 edition of the U.S. Open saw Jon Rahm lifting his first major trophy. Unsurprisingly, the young Spaniard is an odds-on favorite to do it again any time he tees it up at the U.S. Open. Picking him to win or finish in one of the top spots is a relatively safe choice.

Rory McIlroy

The former world No. 1 and the 2011 U.S. Open Champion may be past his prime. But you can always count on McIlroy to flirt with a high finish in any major especially the US Open.

Dustin Johnson

Dustin Johnson is another player that traditionally performs well at the U.S. Open. He’s had a top-six finish five times. That includes his championship-winning run in 2016.

What are the best US Open prop bets

Apart from betting on the outright winner, which is the main betting market, Florida betting sites are full of other US Open golf prop bets you can make during the tournament. For instance, you can bet on:

  • Whether there will be a hole-in-one at the tournament
  • Whether a playoff will be needed
  • Whether there be a first-time winner

Even though many of the tournament favorites are past winners, there are still many great players that haven’t won it yet. Take Xander Schauffele, for example.

If predicting the winner is too big of a bite for you, you can always find markets for the top 20 finishers. Betting that Jon Rahm or Dustin Johnson finish in the top 20, for example, is a relatively safe bet.

Six straight U.S. Open winners were Americans before Jon Rahm became the first winner from Spain. Player nationality is important to look at since some sportsbooks may allow you to pick whether the tournament winner will be from the U.S., Europe or the rest of the world.

US Open live betting & alternate lines

All the bets discussed so far can be made before the tournament begins. However, you can also make most of these bets (and more) during the tournament.

Live U.S. Open betting will also present you with a few additional betting markets. The most popular one is group betting. Here, the goal is to predict which of the golfers teeing off together will have a better performance.

Of course, you can also make bets on individual holes. For example, you can predict whether Tony Finau or Tiger Woods will perform better on Hole 1, or whether the two will tie. Naturally, as the tournament progresses, the odds adjust.

A similar live bet involves predicting a player’s score after a hole or whether he will score a birdie or better or a bogey or worse.

Tiger Woods U.S. Open odds

Tiger Woods made a historic comeback by winning The Masters in 2019. However, he still hasn’t repeated the feat at other majors. At the U.S. Open, he hasn’t landed a top 20 finish in over 10 years.

His car crash and long-term recovery makes his future at the U.S. Open—or even in golf at all—even more speculative. Still, Tiger is Tiger. If he is in the field, bettors will back him in many ways. So you may find that some Florida sportsbooks have odds markets dedicated to Tiger Woods at the U.S. Open.

You can likely bet on how Tiger will perform compared to other players, whether he makes the cut, his performances on individual holes and more.

US Open boosted odds

Golf’s four majors are when Florida sportsbooks try to outbid their competition with the best golf odds and exclusive bonuses and promotions. One of the most common U.S. Open promotions comes in the form of odds boosts. These will give you extended odds on featured markets.

Here are some of the odds boosts that were available for the previous edition of the tournament, so you can expect similar ones in the future:

  • DraftKings Sportsbook tried to attract U.S. Open bettors in 2021 through the KoepkaDeChambeau rivalry, giving both golfers odds of +110 in a head-to-head matchup. However, the maximum bet for this special promo was $25.
  • FanDuel Sportsbook teased bettors with +250 odds on a bet that all of McAfee, Kokrak, Zalatoris and Morikawa would make the cut. Unfortunately, those who took the bait saw no winnings. Only Morikawa made it.
  • BetMGM Sportsbook introduced the special Lion’s Boost for the 2021 U.S. Open. It gave odds of +135 for Bryson DeChambeau to record at least five birdies or eagles in the first round, and the odds of -105 for Jon Rahm to shoot 70 or under in the first round.

Essential US Open betting trends

As with any golf major, the U.S. Open can be unpredictable. Around 150 golfers tee up hoping to win the big title, and it’s rather difficult to pick who will come out on top.

Nevertheless, there is a way to narrow down your choice. For instance:

  • Out of the last 10 winners (as of 2021), seven were ranked in the top 20. All 10 were in the top 30 at the time of winning the tournament. However, none of them were first.
  • Also, nine of the previous 10 winners fell between ages 25 and 35. Only the 21-year-old Jordan Spieth bucked the veteran trend with his 2015 win.
  • Except for Brooks Koepka, no golfer has defended his U.S. Open title since 1989.

Has any Floridian ever won the US Open?

Florida-bred golfers always have a strong presence at the U.S. Open. However, the only golfer born and raised in Florida to make his state proud by winning the tournament was Brooks Koepka, with his back-to-back championship efforts in 2017 and 2018.

Nevertheless, a few Floridian golfers came extremely close, including Mark McCumber, David Duval and Erik Compton, who all finished second in their efforts.

Top Florida players at the US Open

As a state where golf is a prized activity, Florida has produced many of the sport’s legends over the years. At the moment, the best Florida native in the world of golf is undoubtedly Brooks Koepka.

He won back-to-back titles at the US Open in 2017 and 2018, finishing second in 2019 and tying for fourth place in 2021. Koepka’s record speaks for itself. It is reasonable to think his appetites for the following tournament will be pretty high as well.

The top Florida sportsbooks, like DraftKings and BetMGM, consider Koepka one of the favorites for the 2022 U.S. Open.
