Tomorrow is the 2021 US Open, which is the biggest betting day for the early-summer PGA major. With that in mind, bettors can have access to every bit of information possible before placing their final wagers on the tournament. Thankfully, our friends at DraftKings Sportsbook have provided us with a look at the public leans for the US Open. We have provided this information below to help you make more educated decisions on which last-second golf wagers you would like to place for the US Open.
Let’s take a look at the public betting consensus for the 2021 US Open, looking at total money wagered and total bets taken, and a look ahead at this week’s tournament.
US Open Public Betting Splits 2021
— Action Rush (@ActionRushBets) June 16, 2021
As you can see, the most popular players for the public to wager on this week are Brooks Koepka (+1900), Phil Mickelson (+7000), Jon Rahm (+1050), and Dustin Johnson (+1500. Mickelson is quite interesting, as he is 70/1 to win and is coming off a PGA Championship victory. While a golfer of his age winning a second major in one year would have long odds, he has been in good form.
Koepka is the clear favorite, and it makes sense given that he is a two-time winner in 2017 and 2018. At +1900, he has 10% of all the money on him and 7% of the total wagers. Another golfer to keep an eye on is Collin Morikawa, who at +2550 has 5% of the money and 4% of the bets, and is the only player over +1500 to have more than 4% of the bets or money on his side besides Mickelson.
Phil Mickelson a popular longshot for PGA bettors at the US Open 2021
As aforementioned, PGA Champion Phil Mickelson is a very popular longshot this week on DraftKings at a massive 70/1. Those odds are still live at +7000 as of early Wednesday morning, which means DraftKings hasn’t budged on Mickelson’s price for the 2021 US Open after public money has come in. As a matter of fact, Mickelson’s odds opened at +6600 so his price has fallen and still has a large bit of public action.
Is Mickelson worth betting on? At +7000, it would not take much in terms of a wager to return a significant amount with $700 for every $10 wagered if he wins. It is definitely a longshot, but so was the PGA Championship in which Mickelson took home.
Here is a look at some expert picks from the analysts at the Golf Channel.
