With everything that has been taking place away from the golf course, it is little surprise to see a LIV special available in the props market this weekend. For the first time, an active member of the LIV Golf Tour landed major success at the PGA Championship, as Brooks Koepka stormed to glory in the previous major.

While we don’t expect a LIV player to win the event this weekend, there would be little surprise to see one of the players on the breakaway tour making a charge for victory in the final round.

Under 64.5+150

Six players are tied for the record of the lowest opening round at the US Open, with Jack Nicklaus, Tom Weiskopf, Tommy Fleetwood, Justin Thomas, Vijay Singh, and Johnny Miller all scoring a 63.

However, we would be surprised to see any of the players involved this weekend shoot a score that low on what will be a first competitive showing at the course in public.

Will There Be A First Time Winner?

First Time Major Winner?Odds

This is one of the most interesting US Open props markets available this weekend. We are very keen on there being a first-time major winner this weekend, which is backed up by the fact that six of the previous seven US Open champions have been tasting the prestigious glory for the first time.

Therefore, a play on ‘yes’ in this market would be one of our stronger bets for the entire weekend.

Playoffs have been a rarity at the US Open throughout history, with the most recent taking place in 2008, as Tiger Woods held off Rocco Meditate at Torrey Pines. A three-player playoff hasn’t been needed since 1994, showing how ultra-rare that scenario is. We can’t see a playoff being required this weekend.

Winning MarginOdds
Exactly 1 Shot+225
4 Shots Or More+325
Playoff Required+350
Exactly 2 Shots+375
Exactly 3 Shots+650

We expect no playoff to be required this weekend, meaning that we have extra interest in the winning margin market. Matt Fitzpatrick won the US Open last year by one shot, which has been the winning margin in each of the last two editions, and three of the last five.

Martin Kaymer’s eight-shot win in 2014 is one of the biggest in recent history, but we expect a much tighter affair this weekend. Therefore, we will be following the trends this weekend, and expect a one-shot winning margin.
