Golf Betting Odds: 2016 US Open

The golf US Open will always be the toughest test of the four majors, and this year the players have to play the toughest track on American soil. There’s no nice way to put it: Oakmont Country Club is absolutely brutal. The greens will be rolling at 13-14 on the stimpmeter and the rough is a foot long in most spots.

Hitting the fairways is a must, but there the madness just begins as the greens at Oakmont are the toughest in the world. If you hit it in the wrong spot you will struggle to even three-putt, and yes, we will see some 4-putts or more. I predict that someone shoot 90 this week.

The course is long, the course is tight and the greens are like putting on the moon. The 2016 US Open betting field is strong with all of the top players in the world ready to do battle. Below, you will find the current golf betting odds for the 116th PGA US Open, courtesy of BookMaker.eu:

So who has a chance to win the US. Open? Well, with the way this course and these conditions will play, it really is anyone’s game.

Get to Know the US Open Favorites

The so called “Big 3” are golf betting favorites. Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy and Jason Day odds are all around +800, so there is really not much value in any of them and the public will be all over the trio.

The real VALUE this year is further down the list, with Hideki Matsuyama at +3262 and Patrick Reed at +4525. Both players have the talent to win a U.S. Open, they both drive the ball well, scramble well and most importantly, roll the ball well with the flatstick.

Another great pick for all formats this week is Jim Furyk +8125. After being out most of the year to recover from wrist surgery, the veteran showed some game in his last start at The Memorial and is primed for a great week at Oakmont. Furyk grew up in Pennsylvania and will get a lot of hometown support and remember, the last time the U.S. Open was played at Oakmont in 2007, Furyk finished second.

Will We See Tiger Woods This Year?

And finally, for you Tiger Woods fans, he’s not playing and no one knows when or if he will ever play again. I know I am getting tired of the saga that follows him around whether or not he’s playing. Tiger, please come out and tell us whether you’re done for good or not playing this year.

The 116th U.S. Open is scheduled for Thursday, June 16, through Sunday, June 19. FOX Sports and FS1 will provide 40 hours of live golf throughout the four days.
