Betting Note: Betting amounts are based on confidence level. My normal betting amounts are $125, $250 & $500, although I will go as low as $62.50 and as high as $1,000 on occasion. My most common bet is $125 and if you classify that as 1 unit, then I have made a 667.93 unit profit from 2014-2020. (full stats)

E/W (Each-Way) bets means you split that amount. So if it is a $250 E/W bet, that means $125 on them to win, $125 on them to place (Usually in the Top 5).

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:


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 for a full unit.

Bet: To win and E/W with 6 places being covered at

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

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

Since 2014 I've been providing free golf tips on a weekly basis. Each tournament analysis, research and writing the betting tips takes over 10 hours per tournament. That doesn’t include watching each tournament and taking notes etc. It's why I do less and less non-PGA tips these days.

I’ve delivered a lot of big winners over the years, and all I ask is if you appreciate the work I put in and so I can continue to keep the tips free, a donation is highly recommended and much appreciated.

While I obviously make enough money from my golf bets, this sort of financial support would motivate me to write more content on here. This would include golf prop bets like first round leader, head vs head and much more plus daily fantasy golf articles. Cheers!
