2019 US Open Betting Preview

Pebble Beach is the place to be as the 2019 US Open kicks off this Thursday, bringing us a hot, fresh round of online golf betting action. Coming off the PGA Championship, mobile betting players will be making their US Open predictions in stride. We witnessed Brooks Koepka keep Dustin Johnson at bay at Bethpage Black last month. So what can golf aficionados expect out of this week’s tournament?

2019 US Open – Thursday, June 13th – Sunday, June 16th

When: Tee Times start ~ 8:45 am ET
Where: Pebble Beach Golf Links, Pebble Beach, California
TV: FS1
Stream: Fox Sports Go

Heading into the 2019 US Open, it’s difficult to tell where the true power lies. Leading up to the event, expert picks seem to be all over the place. Some pundits are favoring Dustin Johnson or Brooks Koepka while others prefer the longshot in either Patrick Cantlay or Justin Thomas. One thing is clear however and that is that Johnson is at the top of everyone’s list. After all, he’s picked up two wins at this venue already and has become quite comfortable in the warm California weather.

However, Brooks Koepka is looking dangerous as well considering that he’s won the last two US Opens. Will Koepka make history by joining Willie Anderson as the only player to win 3 consecutive US Open titles?  Well some experts doubt his ability to handle the rough, suggesting that this will greatly hinder at Pebble Beach. However, the roughs at Bethpage Black were quite astounding and Brooks seemed to take them in stride. Let’s take a gander at the online golf betting odds to see how they feel about Koepka’s three-peat.

2019 US Open Betting Odds to Win Tournament

As can be seen, Koepka enters as the online golf betting favorite to win the tournament again. In addition to what was covered above, some experts believe that there are other reasons to shy away from Koepka. This includes the fact that his scrambling ability is not his strong suit. However, like the other doubts that were hurled his way, this isn’t a prime reason to avoid betting Koepka. After all, Koepka has led the PGA Championship in greens hitting an eye-catching 73%. So while Pebble Beach does sport extremely tiny greens, it doesn’t look like this should trouble Koepka too much. But apart from the favorite, what are some other picks to consider?

Dustin Johnson: Another one of the US Open betting favorites, there are plenty of reasons to back Johnson here. Firstly, he has quite the course history here: he’s won the AT&T here twice, two T-2s as well and 3 other Top-5s. And back in 2010, Johnson nearly won had it not been for a lackluster Sunday. Nonetheless, that Sunday came nearly a decade ago and there’s no question that Johnson has evolved as a player. He’s a meticulous player that comes in with a good deal of momentum and you can find better odds in backing him over Koepka.

Patrick Cantlay: If sports betting players want to shy away from the favorites and back a sleeper then Patrick Cantlay is a great pick to consider. He’s been playing great as of late and many pundits feel he’s closing in on a major. All in all, the US Open is likely his best chance to do so.
