How To Bet On The 2016 US Open Odds
Jason Day, Rory McIlroy and defending U.S. Open Champions Jordan Spieth will be leading a star-studded cast of world-class golfers that will be competing at the Oakmont Country Club in Pennsylvania in pursuit for the 2016 U.S. Open title. This Major U.S-based tournament, which takes place from June 16-19, comes on the back of a drama-filled finish by Englishman Danny Willet at the 2016 Masters Tournament in April and golf betting enthusiasts are hoping for another thrilling battle when the professional golfers tee-off this weekend. Could we have another sleeper upsetting the world-leading trio of Day, Mcllroy and Spieth like Willet did at the Augusta, or will one of the “Big Three” golfers assert his dominance in this auspicious PGA Tour? Find out as we preview the Golf betting odds in the section below.

Betting on Best 2016 U.S. Open Favorite Picks
Jason Day (8/1 Odds to win 2016 U.S. Open)
Forget about the Big Three, it’s the World No. 1 Day vs. Everybody Else! If form is anything to go by, Day is the man you would want to put your money on. This guy has tallied an impressive 12 top-10 finishes, including a whopping 7 wins, in his last 19 events, making him the hottest player coming into the tournament. And after learning from his painful lessons of crashing out in the second round of last year’s U.S. Open, the Australian should be a hot favorite to make amends with a title-worthy run.
Rory McIlroy (8/1 Odds)
In spite of putting up strong runs in nearly all his PGA Tournaments this year—three top-5 finishes and five top 10 finishes—Mcllroy hasn’t been lucky enough to win a tournament in this calendar season. That said, winning the Irish Open in May, along with his good run on the year, should act as big motivation for the 2011 U.S. Open Champion to victoriously validate his place among the Big Three.
Jordan Spieth (15/2 Odds)
As the reigning tournament champ and one of the Big Three golfers in the world, Spieth knows what it takes to beat tough competition and claim the prestigious U.S. Open title. It doesn’t help that the 22-year-old golfer has had sputtering performances lately–shooting himself in the foot in the Masters Tournament, and then missing the cut a at the PLAYERS Championship, before bouncing back with a win at the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational at Colonial, followed up with a 57th-place finish at the Memorial Tournament. But having finished fourth or better at five straight majors, there is every reason to believe that the Dallas native can find his game and get back on track for a big performance in search for his third major title.
Betting on Best 2016 U.S. Open Sleeper Picks
Dustin Johnson (15/1 Odds)
With seven Top-10 finishes in 12 events this season, and some stellar power off the tee skills that could come in handy at Oakmont; Johnson is a sleeper as strong as any to crash the party at the 2016 U.S. Open.
Danny Willet (30/1 Odds)
It’s never easy to win back-to-back Majors, it will be hard for Willet to claim the 2016 U.S. Open, which would be his second title in the Majors. But the World No. 9 has been in excellent form all season, something he showcased by stealing the win from Spieth in the Masters. He is also No. 1 currently in the Race to Dubai and has been increasingly accurate with his hits, meaning he will be a player to watch at a good betting value in the ultra-fast greens Oakmont.
Phil Mickelson (30/1 Odds)
The ageless Mickelson doesn’t need much of an introduction here. As a six-time runner-up in the U.S. Open, Mickelson is easily one of the most talented and unlucky players to have not yet won this Tournament. Could this be the year he finally completes his career Grand Slam, having already won three Masters titles, one U.S. PGA Championship and one Open title? The strong field of players will make it hard for the 45-year-old American, but we wish him all the best in his quest for the holy golf trinity.
Patrick Reed (40/1 Odds)
Another unlucky player to have never won a Major Championship and has surprisingly struggled in the U.S. Open is Reed. This year could, however, hold better tidings for him, having won four PGA Tours in 2016 and piled up top 10 finishes in more than half the events he’s participated in this year.
Betting on Best 2016 U.S. Open Odds Picks
Charl Schwartzel (60/1)
For starters, I don’t think Schwartzel’s odds should be this long, given he’s been playing some decent golf in recent times. Secondly, this is a player with tons of pedigree, as two-time top-10 finisher in the U.S. Open and a former Masters winner; credentials that could see him surprise the competition in a big way this coming weekend.
Daniel Berger (125/1)
As one of the three players to finish in top-10 at both the Masters and the Players (Jason Day and Hideki Matsuyama being the other two), you will be hard-done to find a sweeter longshot than Berger. The St. Jude Classic winner knows how to avoid getting trouble and is enjoying a form that is much better than that of several players ranked ahead of him in the world. There should therefore be no reason for this good form not to translate into something special at the magical Oakmont field.
