2020 U.S. Open: Odds to Win and Betting Preview

Heading into moving day, Patrick Reed carries a slight one-stroke lead over Bryson DeChambeau atop the leaderboard in the 2020 US Open. With that, Reed is also atop the oddsboard as the +400 favorite.

The U.S. Open was initially scheduled for June 18-21 at Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, New York, before it was postponed. It is now slated to take place on September 17-20, marking the first time the tournament has ever been played in September. No fans will be in attendance at Winged Foot due to social-distancing measures.

Online sportsbook Bovada currently has Reed as the favorite at +400 followed closely by DeChambeau at +450, Justin Thomas at +450, Xander Schauffele at +1000 and Jon Rahm at +1200 to round out to the top five on the oddsboard.

No. 1 Johnson Opens As The Betting Favorite

Dustin Johnson opened as the +800 favorite to win the second major title of his career. DJ, the 2016 U.S. Open winner, has been playing lights-out golf of late. Johnson won the Northern Trust with a score of 30 under par, 11 strokes better than runner-up Harris English. Johnson then went on to win the FedExCup, capped off by a -21 showing at the Tour Championship.

After struggling to a three-over 73 in the opening round, Johnson finds himself outside of the top 20 heading into the third round. 

Wide Open Field Heading Into The Weekend

There's plenty of value to be found on the oddsboard, with only six players shooting under par heading into the third round and 15 players within five strokes of Reed. 

Matsuyama (+2000), is one of only a handful of players that had a better score on Friday than on Thursday, shooting one over in the first round and one under in the second putting him four strokes back heading into moving day.

Who Won the 2019 U.S. Open?

Gary Woodland shocked the world by winning the U.S. Open a year ago, completing two clutch shots – including a birdie putt on the final hole at Pebble Beach Golf Links – to claim his first major victory.

Woodland held off Brooks Koepka, who was trying to match a 114-year-old record by winning his third straight U.S. Open. Woodland was unflappable all tournament long and got better with each big moment he faced throughout the weekend. He finished with the lowest 72-hole score (-13) in six U.S. Opens at Pebble Beach.

Prior to the tournament, Woodland was +4000 to go all the way in California. The American’s odds sit at +8000 at Bovada as he attempts to go back to back at the 2020 U.S. Open.

Winged Foot Hasn’t Hosted Since 2006

The last time the U.S. Open was not played was in 1945 due to the Second World War, but the PGA Tour is intent on having the tournament at its new fall date.

The U.S. Open was initially supposed to be played at Winged Foot Golf Club on June 18-21 but was pushed back due to health and safety concerns around COVID-19. The PGA Championship and the Masters were also postponed to later dates.

The PGA Championship was played from August 3-9, while the Masters will have an incredibly unique look thanks to its new time on November 9-15.

Winged Foot last hosted the major in 2006, when Geoff Ogilvy emerged triumphant at the track. The USGA’s decision to keep the U.S. Open at Winged Foot is significant considering the course hasn’t hosted a major PGA Tour event since the 2006 edition of the tournament.


When examining pre-tournament golf odds, you’ll consistently notice one thing: there are a significant number of options. That’s because golf events feature a large field week in and week out, so picking a winner before the first round is tough, yet extremely profitable.

Our golf content provides weekly tournament previews as well as expert picks to help put some cash in your pocket. Below, we are going to explain some different betting options for the PGA Tour to help you decide which wager(s) would be best for you.

Props

Golf is unique for many reasons, but one of them is the significant number of betting props available.

Sportsbooks go all out for major tournaments, offering odds on things like whether there will be a hole-in-one, OVER/UNDERs on the winning score for the eventual champion and odds on golfers to make or miss the cut, to name a few. Similar to other sports, props are a fun way to enhance your betting experience.

Futures

As they do in other sports, futures bets typically offer bigger payouts. For example, if a player is +4000 to win a given tournament but the event is not for another few months, placing a bet on him in advance gives you the advantage of getting early odds, especially if they lower as the tournament approaches.

Live Betting

Live betting is an exhilarating way to watch golf. If the player you placed a pre-tournament bet on is out of the running at any point during the event, you can easily get back in the game by wagering on another golfer as the days go by.

If there are only a few men in the hunt on the final day, the odds likely won’t be significantly high, but your chances of winning are.

Depending on your sportsbook, you should be able to access live betting options during most PGA Tour tournaments.
