US Open golf betting tip

World number one Justin Thomas looks to be the man to beat at US Open 2018

Although the media hype might suggest otherwise, World Cup 2018 isn’t the only game in town this week.  Also taking place is the US Open golf championship, taking place at Shinnecock Hills in New York from Thursday 14th to Sunday 17th June, in what will be the 118th US Open and the fifth to take place at Shinnecock Hills. Read on for our US Open golf betting tip for 2018…

It’s a highly competitive field, with a number of the game’s leading players going into the tournament having good reason to be confident in their chances given their recent form.

The, perhaps surprisingly warm, ante-post favourite at best odds of 17/2 with SunBets is Dustin Johnson, the 2016 US Open champion.  

Other US Open Golf Betting Odds

The somewhat off-form Jordan Spieth can be backed at 20/1 with Sportingbet.

Tiger Out of the Woods?

There is also, inevitably, interest in Tiger Woods following his long-awaited (and perhaps increasingly unexpected) return to form in recent months after years of injury and self-inflicted problems.  

The best US Open odds of 22/1 currently on offer with BetFred will certainly be among many US Open betting tips, but there probably needs to be more evidence that Tiger is capable of challenging consistently for the top titles again before we’d be backing him here.

Our US Open Golf Betting Tip

The player who perhaps looks the most impressive of late is Justin Thomas, currently world ranked number one (he replaced Dustin Johnson as the world number one golfer after the 2018 Players Championship).

The 25 year-old Thomas won his first Major with the PGA Championship in 2017 and in recent months has won the Honda Classic, had a play-off loss to Phil Mickelson in the WGC-Mexico Championship (having shot remarkable 62-64 rounds over the weekend) and a semi-final appearance in the WGC-Dell Match Play (beaten 3 & 2 by Bubba Watson in the semi-finals).  

It’s a level of consistency that marks Thomas out as the pick here.  With bet365* paying out 8 places at 1/5 odds, their 16/1 offer on Thomas to be the US Open 2018 champion looks good value and will be our only US Open golf betting tip this year.

Betfinder’s Recommended Bet:
US Open 2018 outright – JUSTIN THOMAS each-way @ 16/1 (17.00) with bet365*

*Odds correct at the time of writing
