Johnson Betting Favorite on PGA US Open Odds

PGA US Open Betting Odds - Bet on Golf Online | Bovada Sportsbook

Dustin Johnson will be gunning for the second major tournament victory of his career this week when he hits the course as a +900 betting favorite on the PGA US Open betting odds.

Johnson claimed his first major tournament win two years ago at the US Open, and will be looking for a repeat performance at the event – which gets underway on Thursday morning at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in Shinnecock Hills, New York.

And Johnson is coming off a winning effort over in the weekend in the FedEx St. Jude Classic at TPC Southwind in Memphis, cruising to a six-stroke victory in the tournament. Prior to his win at TPC Southwind the South Carolina native had turned in an eighth-place finish in the Memorial Tournament earlier this month. That had marked Johnson’s best performance since early March, when he claimed a share of seventh place at the WGC – Mexico Championship.

Johnson, though, has struggled at times in major tournament play since paying out on +1200 odds in his 2016 US Open victory at Oakmont Country Club. Johnson has missed the cut at major tournaments on two occasions since, including last year’s US Open. However, a strong finish lifted him into 10th place at this year’s Masters while sporting +1400 odds.

 

McIlroy, Spieth Follow on Odds to Win 2018 PGA US Open

Four-time major winner Rory McIlroy follows behind Johnson at +1200, just ahead of Jordan Spieth, who sits alongside Jason Day, Justin Thomas, and Justin Rose at +1400 on the PGA US Open odds.

A final-round 69 lifted McIlroy into a tie with Johnson for eighth place at the Memorial Tournament. However, the Northern Ireland native has produced mixed results since shooting a 64 on the final day of action at the Arnold Palmer Invitational to claim a three-stroke victory on +1400 odds.

McIlroy followed up with a fifth-place finish as a +1000 co-favorite at the Masters, but uneven play doomed him to a 16th-place finish at the Wells Fargo Championship before missing the cut as a +1600 wager last month at THE PLAYERS Championship.

Spieth has also turned in disappointing results since capping a third-place finish at the Masters by shooting a 64 in the final round. The 2015 US Open champion has failed to crack the Top 20 in five subsequent tour appearances, missing the cut twice including two weeks ago at the Memorial Tournament.

Conversely, Day has enjoyed a resurgence this season, tallying a pair of wins including last month’s Well Fargo Championship, and has twice finished second at the US Open, in 2011 and 2013.

Thomas claimed his first major win at last year’s PGA Championship, and currently sits atop the FedExCup standings, but has reached the Top 10 just once in five tour appearances. Rose looks to build on his second win of the season at last month’s Fort Worth Invitational as he pursues a second career US Open win.

Further down the PGA odds to win, Rickie Fowler joins Tiger Woods at +1600, and Jon Rahm sits alongside defending US Open champion Brooks Koepka at +2000, followed by Phil Mickelson and Hideki Matsuyama, who are knotted at +2800.
