Jon Rahm is featured in the U.S. Open prop bets

U.S. Open Prop Bets: Rahm A Good Option To Repeat

The third major championship of the year is upon us as players head to Boston, Massachusetts, for the 122nd U.S. Open. With it comes a wide variety of golf betting options as numerous props, novelty bets and much more are available for the general public to indulge in.

Jon Rahm will look to successfully defend his U.S. Open crown as he won in dramatic fashion last year at Torrey Pines with birdies on both the 71st and 72nd holes.

He is having a middling season by his standards, but his game has always stacked up well for the challenge that is the U.S. Open and it should once again at the Country Club.

Not featured in this year’s field is Tiger Woods, who is still nursing a leg injury that caused him to withdraw after the third round of the PGA Championship.

The 15-time major champion is often heavily featured in prop bets when it comes to these tournaments, but with his absence from the grounds also comes his absence in the prop bets offered by Sportsbook.

U.S. Open Prop Bets

Top Korean: Sungjae Im +125

U.S. Open Props: Top-Finishing Korean
Sungjae Im+125
Si Woo Kim+250
Kyoung-Hoon Lee+375
Joohyung Kim+450

Odds as of June 14 at Sportsbook

Matched up against Si Woo Kim, K.H. Lee and Joohyung Kim, Im has a considerable edge at the Country Club. He is long and straight off the tee and precise with his irons and should realistically contend in this year’s championship.

He arrives at the Country Club having not missed a cut since the end of February and inherently possesses the highest floor of the group.

Combine that level of consistency with the upside of five straight top-21 finishes, including a T-8 at the Masters and a T-10 at the Memorial Tournament, and Im should have no issues taking care of his countrymen.

His biggest threat will come from Si Woo Kim but this championship has not been kind to the former Players champion in the past. In five outings, he has three missed cuts and has been unable to dial it in off the tee to keep his ball in the short grass.

While Kim is currently playing some strong golf, Im makes for the sound choice in this 2022 U.S. Open prop bet.

Top Canadian: Corey Conners +150

U.S. Open Props: Top-Finishing Canadian

Ben Silverman+1200

The 30-year-old disappointed many backers with his missed cut at the PGA Championship, but rest assured it was just a blip on the radar. Take his performance from Southern Hills out of the equation and Conners has been terrific in 2022.

He finished third at Austin Country Club, sixth at Augusta National and most recently sixth last week at the RBC Canadian Open. He rounded out his efforts at St. George’s Golf & Country Club with a final-round 8-under 62 and should ride this wave of momentum from Canada into the United States.

While Conners’ ball-striking strength will carry him around the Country Club, the same cannot be said for Adam Hadwin and Mackenzie Hughes, his two biggest competitors in this market.

They both have a way of overly relying on their short game as they occasionally fall short with their approach play. If they do so this week, they will be in for a short trip to Boston, while Conners could contend for his first major title at the U.S. Open.

Top Englishman: Matt Fitzpatrick +185

Fitzpatrick may have the highest floor on the PGA Tour at the moment as he has done just about everything but win in 2022. Coming off a top-10 finish at the RBC Canadian Open, he now returns to the site of his biggest win in the United States, the 2013 U.S. Amateur. While the Country Club and Fitzpatrick have both changed, I am willing to suggest they will continue their good relationship in the U.S. Open.

In 12 starts this season, Fitzpatrick has 10 top-20 finishes, including six top-10 results. While he has missed the cut a couple of times, when he plays his way through to the weekend, his name is often on the first page of the leaderboard. That can’t be said about Justin Rose and Tyrrell Hatton, who despite moments of fantastic play have been inconsistent.

Fitzpatrick’s biggest threat comes from Tommy Fleetwood, the second favorite in this U.S. Open prop market.

However, despite Fleetwood’s recent resurgence, I am unconvinced his putting improvement is here to stay. If it falls off at the Country Club, that should be enough to clear the way for Fitzpatrick in this market.

Xander Schauffele & Will Zalatoris To Finish Inside Top 20 +205

U.S. Open Props: Both Top-20 Finish
Rory McIlroy/Justin Thomas-125
Rory McIlroy/Scottie Scheffler-115

Rory McIlroy/Cameron Smith+115
Rory McIlroy/Jon Rahm-110

Rory McIlroy/Patrick Cantlay+120
Rory McIlroy/Collin Morikawa+120
Rory McIlroy/Shane Lowry+120
Rory McIlroy/Viktor Hovland+120
Rory McIlroy/Jordan Spieth+135

Odds as of June 14 at Sportsbook

Schauffele and Zalatoris may be the two best players in the game at the moment without a major championship. In his last five U.S. Open appearances, Schauffele has never finished outside the top 10 and has results of T-7, 5, T-3, T-6 and T-5 to his name.

After a so-so Florida swing, he has rediscovered his form and even nabbed a victory at the Zurich Classic alongside Patrick Cantlay.

With four straight top-20 finishes and five straight top-10 finishes in this championship, Schauffele should have no issues adding to his total. He has been exquisite both on approach and around the green, two crucial areas of the game at the Country Club.

Zalatoris has been equally impressive in eight major championships. When the Wake Forest product has made his way through to the weekend, his worst finish to date is a T-6 at both this year’s Masters and the 2020 U.S. Open. His game is built for a U.S. Open test and should thrive at the Country Club.

There is some slight hesitancy to back the defending U.S. Open champion at the moment. Rory McIlroy won last week and commands the top spot on the 2022 U.S. Open betting oddsboard, but the Spaniard remains undervalued.

Rahm has continued to make strides in his short game even after his victory at the Mexico Open. He is a top-five ball striker in the world and if those strides continue, he should contend once again.

His major championship record since 2019 is stellar as he has a victory, 10 top-25 finishes and seven top-10s.
