U.S. Open Odds 2020: Dustin Johnson Leads with +850 Odds
One of the top tournaments each year in golf is the US Open. From Tiger Woods’ domination in 2000 to Brooks Koepka winning back-to-back in 2017 and 2018, the US Open has always been fun to watch. Even with coronavirus concerns in 2020, the PGA Tour fully expects the US Open to play. Let’s take a look at the betting odds, schedule, and some US Open history dating back over 100 years.
The 120th U.S. Open has been rescheduled for Sept. 17-20, 2020, at Winged Foot Golf Club.

Updated 2020 US Open Odds
|Golfer||US Open Odds|
The above list is the top 20 golfers in terms of US Open odds on DraftKings Sportsbook. The favorite was Rory McIlroy, then was Bryson DeChambeau throughout the last PGA season. Then during the week of the US Open, Dustin Johnson became the favorite. Tiger Woods’ odds are +4500, having dropped from +1400 earlier in the 2020 PGA season. The odds to win the US Open have some very similar prices as the Masters odds, which indicate that sportsbooks are handicapping odds very similarly for the 2020 PGA season.

Dustin Johnson is the US Open Favorite with +850 Odds
— Action Rush (@ActionRushBets) September 15, 2020
As of Tuesday, September 15th, Dustin Johnson’s odds moved from +650 to +850 to win the US Open. With his current form and terrific back and forth with Jon Rahm in the last few events, including the Tour Championship, the US Open will be yet another terrific tournament to watch the two star golfers battle it out. Will there be another playoff? Will Dustin Johnson pull out a US Open win? Time will tell, but he is the current betting favorite to take the tournament.
Bryson DeChambeau Becomes Favorite to Win 2020 US Open
DeChambeau just tapped in for par at No. 1, his 10th home of the day. I was one of 22 people standing near green and watching. Yep, this is strangest major championship ever (until US Open next month)

At DraftKings Sportsbook, the favorite as of late August to win the US Open is Bryson DeChambeau at +800. He was tied with Rory McIlroy at the top, with Brooks Koepka right behind them at +1000. With Koepka dropping out of The Northern Trust with injury, the odds could change here as well, and they certainly did as Bryson DeChambeau’s odds moved to +2800 during US Open week.

Can a playoff win be considered dominant? Bob Jones showed it could with his 1929 win over Al Espinosa

On DraftKings Sportsbook in mid-April, there was no golfer with better odds than Brooks Koepka at +800 to win the US Open. Koepka is ahead of Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, and Jon Rahm who all stand at +1000. Of course, Koepka won the US Open in 2017 and 2018, and finished second to Gary Woodland in the 2019 US Open. There is no doubt that the US Open is an event Koepka has dominated in recent years, so can the favorite win again in 2020? Unfortunately not, as Koepka is injured and will not participate in the 2020 US Open.
Two-time champion Brooks Koepka withdraws from next week's US Open at Winged Foot due to injury…

Tigers Woods Odds to Win The US Open Set at +4500
Tiger Woods’ odds to win the US Open was the same as it is to win the Masters at +1400. Then as the year went on, Woods’ odds dropped to +4500. Of course, Tiger Woods has a history at the US Open as he has won the tournament three times including the famous 2000 US Open where Tiger Woods won by fifteen strokes over Miguel Ángel Jiménez and Ernie Els. While the 272 final score was not a US Open record, the overwhelming dominance of a player to win by 15 strokes is incredible. The above video details just that in the “Perfection at Pebble”. You can bet on Tiger Woods to win the US Open at DraftKings Sportsbook.
Latest 2020 PGA Tour Schedule
Of course the PGA Tour schedule is subject to change on a week to week basis, but as of today there are 54 days till play returns.

In early April, the PGA Tour laid out the updated Masters and PGA Tour schedule:
- U.S. Open: Sept. 17-20
- The Open: Canceled
- PGA Championship: Aug. 6-9
- Ryder Cup: Still Sept. 25-27
- The Masters: Nov 12-15
- FedEx playoffs pushed back one week
The first event after the coronavirus pandemic is expected to be the Fort Worth Invitational on June 11th at the Colonial Golf Course. That will be followed by the RBC Heritage and the Travelers Championship. As you can see in the updated schedule, betting on golf and the PGA will return soon! It’s been since The PLAYERS since we have been excited about golf, but unfortunately, that event was canceled and what started the beginning of PGA Tour suspending the schedule.
