U.S. Open Odds 2020: Bryson DeChambeau and Rory McIlroy are Favored To Win

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 above list is the top 20 golfers in terms of US Open odds on DraftKings Sportsbook. The favorite was Rory McIlroy, but after that is two-time champion and last year’s runner-up Brooks Koepka, followed closely by Dustin Johnson, and Jon Rahm. Tiger Woods’ odds are +1400, then the rest of the field is either 18:1 or lower including Justin Thomas, Rickie Fowler, Jordan Spieth and more. 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. As of early July, the favorites became Bryson DeChambeau and Rory McIlroy, after DeChambeau’s torrid pace in the summer.

Brooks Koepka Opens as Favorite to Win 2020 US Open at +800

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? Time will tell, but bettors and books alike certainly like Koepka as the favorite.


Tigers Woods Odds to Win The US Open Set at +1400

Tiger Woods’ odds to win the US Open is the same as it is to win the Masters at +1400. 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

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.
