US Open 2020 Odds
US Open Past Winners
There will be a number of past winners involved in this year’s event, which will only add further intrigue to what fans could expect to see in New York. Gary Woodland was the shock winner last year, as he won by three strokes from the two-time defending champion Brooks Koepka. Koepka went into the 2019 edition of the major having won in 2017 and 2018. Dustin Johnson will start this year’s US Open as the outright favourite, with the main reason for that being due to his success in this major in 2016. Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth are among the other players involved that have won this major in the past.
US Open 2020 Preview
This will be unlike any major that we have seen for some time, as the conditions that are awaiting the players at Winged Foot Golf Club will make for a huge challenge this coming weekend. That means that is could be wise for gamblers to avoid some of the short-priced players in the field and look for potential value in their each-way wagers.
With that being said, one of the players that could generate interest in this year’s field is Hideki Matsuyama. The 28-year-old has already showcased his form during the majors, as he finished as the runner-up in this very major back in 2017. He is rightly regarded as one of the best Asian golfers ever, as he has won five PGA-tour events throughout his career. To date, he has won 14 professional titles, and was ranked as high as second in the world as recently as the 13th September. However, that allusive first major has evaded him to date, but that could be set to change this weekend, and he does present great each-way value at +2800 with Bet365.
Xander Schauffele also boasts impressive value for the US Open 2020, and will be priced at +1400. It’s a little on the short side for gamblers, but he has an incredibly chance of finishing in a returns place. He finished third in the US Open last term, and his short-game would highlight that he has a credible chance in New York this weekend. His recent form has also been strong, which could indicate that his wait for a major could be coming to an end.
US Open Picks
- Xander Schauffele at +1400 with Bet365.
- Hideki Matsuyama each-way at +2800 with Bet365.
