The third major golf tournament of the 2021/22 season is coming next week. As the 2022 US Open is held between the 16th and 19th of June at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts. Jon Rahm is the defending champion and one of the top favorites again. But the 2022 US Open golf betting tips also mention the world No1, Scottie Scheffler, and the 2011 winner, Rory McIlroy ahead of him.
It might not get as much attention as it would deserve thanks to the new Saudi-backed LIV Golf Series. But the third major tournament of the season, the 2022 US Open is getting close. It will be held next week, between 16-19 June. The Country Club in Brookline, just outside of Boston will host the event for the fourth time. The tournament goes back a long history after the first edition was held back in 1895. Only 10 professional and one amateur player took part in that tournament while this year’s field include 156 players.
We can find several former winners and top-form players in it. From Rory McIlroy to Jon Rahm who is the defending champion. Three-time US Open winner Tiger Woods will skip the event. Unlike Dustin Johnson who can compete in spite of his departure from the PGA Tour.
2022 US Open golf betting tips favor the world No1 and former winners
Scottie Scheffler is still leading the world ranking following his win at the 2022 Masters Tournament. The 25-year-old American golfer also won three more events this season: the WM Phoenix Open, the Arnold Palmer Invitational, and the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play. Even though he missed the cut in the PGA Championship, he finished as a runner-up in the Charles Schwab Challenge two weeks ago. After such great results, it’s not surprising that online sportsbooks in the UK offer the smallest odds, 13.00 for his victory next weekend.
But Scheffler will face several other top players like Rory McIlroy who won the US Open in 2011. The British player hasn’t been in his best form in the last few years. But he returned back with a win at the CJ Cup last October. He also performed well in the last three major tournaments and finished in the top 10 in all of them.
What’s more, McIlroy was leading the PGA Championship after Round 1, but in the end, he only finished in eighth place. Now the four-time major champion has the same odds, 13.00 for another win in the 2022 US Open golf betting tips. Which also mentions the defending champion, Jon Rahm with similar odds. (15.00). The Spanish golfer won the Mexico Open in May but only finished T48 in the PGA Championship.
Thomas, Morikawa, and Johnson with a good chance of winning
Justin Thomas won the previous major tournament, the 2022 PGA Championship which was his second major victory. His best result at the US Open has been a T8 finish in 2020, but he can get a better finish now. Thomas also got six top 10 finishes this year and the odds of 17.00 on bet365 to win in Brookline.
Collin Morikawa stands ahead of him in fifth place in the world rankings, but he hasn’t got such great results recently. The 25-year-old is usually doing well in major tournaments after winning two of them last year. And finishing T4 in the 2021 US Open. While he was also fifth in this year’s Masters Tournament in April. Online gambling sites in the UK offer the odds of 21.00 for his victory.
Dustin Johnson is another favorite in spite of his departure from the PGA Tour. The two-time major champion won the US Open in 2016 and finished in the top 10 on five more occasions. He hasn’t won any tournament this season though. And he didn’t even make the cut in the PGA Championship. The former world No1 has the odds of 26.00 to get his third major win. We also have to mention Will Zalatoris who hasn’t got any win in the PGA Tour yet. But he has been playing great in recent major tournaments.
The world No14 was second in the 2022 PGA Championship and in last year’s Masters. While his best result at the US Open is a T6 finish from 2020. Zalatoris might get the win now with the odds of 26.00 to do so.
