Well it was almost a fantastic return to the LPGA for us last week. We had the 125/1 Brittany Lincicome to win or place, and she went into the last day in 2nd place just 1 stroke off the lead.

Unfortunately she had a disastrous final day and what could have been an insane cash was not to be.

Thankfully Dustin Johnson did it for us again with the cash. Here’s the betting slip:

dustin-johnson-fedex

And nice that I was able to predict him being in the Top 5 but did not do the bet for him to win or E/W. Good I was on the right track there.

This week it’s the 2016 US Open and I’m going to be putting all of my focus on that one. We’ll have a couple of serious bets and then a few long shots. While I don’t expect the long shots to win we’ve seen quite a few before get in the Top 6. Like Louis O at 100/1 last year or Cameron Smith who was 500/1. The year before saw the 400/1 Erik Compton come 2nd, and before that the 500/1 Michael Thompson came 2nd.

Let’s check out the betting odds for the US Open before we get to the tips:

US Open 2016 Betting Odds:

  1. Jason Day: 13/2
  2. Rory McIlroy: 15/2
  3. Jordan Spieth: 10/1
  4. Dustin Johnson: 14/1
  5. Phil Mickelson: 28/1
  6. Justin Rose: 28/1
  7. Hideki Matsuyama: 30/1
  8. Rickie Fowler: 33/1
  9. Adan Scott: 33/1
  10. Henrik Stenson: 35/1

US Open 2016 Betting Tip #1: Dustin Johnson

Right outta the gates I gotta take Dustin Johnson to win and E/W. Johnson is just an exceptional golfer who is on some tremendous form at the moment. There’s a reason he has one us the best bets this season. It’s actually been quite a while since he last won a PGA Tournament – but his US Open Form is tremendous and I think he’s coming into it as one of the most on form golfers.

The 14/1 odds are just too high a price for me – I think that’s very juicy although I do understand why the odds are that amount with Day, Rory and Spieth. I’ll be taking Johnson to pick up the massive win.

Bet: To win and E/W with 6 places being covered at Bovada for Americans.

US Open 2016 Betting Tip #2: Brooks Koepka

It’s hard not to look at Brooks Koepka here. His form coming into this tournament is 2 2nd places in a row – at the Byron Nelson and St Jude Classic. Both fantastic performances and he’s been on fire. He’s also perofmred well at the US Open in the past – 18th last year and a 4th place the year before.

I’m taking a half unit bet on Koepka to win and E/W.

Bet: Bet this at http://www.GTBets.com.

U S Open Betting Tip #3: 4 Longshot Bets

I won’t bother going into reasoning for these – just from glancing at some stats I’ve thought “Sure I’ll bet them”. It’s up to you how you want to bet them – you could go for much safer bets like a Top 20 finish or whatever. I’ll be betting to win and E/W in the hope of that fluke and the big payout.

I’m taking:

Jason Dufner: 100/1
David Toms: 300/1
Brandt Snedeker: 66/1
Kevin Chappell: 90/1

Special Note to Americans: The majority of my bets rely on each-way betting which is an insurance bet on the golfer to place in the top 5. Unfortunately no American sportsbooks offer that option. I recommend betting at Bovada where you can choose to bet "To Win" and also "Top 5". Split your bet over both of those. Plus get $250 in Free Bets - Only available at Bovada.
