The USGA isn’t giving us an early pairing at the U.S. Open between Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka, but sportsbooks are offering plenty of ways to wager on the two.
One of the biggest topics in the golf world is the budding rivalry between DeChambeau and Koepka. The quirky, analytical DeChambeau and the cool and confident Koepka are seemingly opposites. The two have leaned into the rivalry, exchanging jabs on social media. Koepka last week said he believes the beef is good for the game.
As a result, sportsbooks are offering plenty of ways to get in on the action.
You can bet on Koepka (+1800) or DeChambeau (+1400) at DraftKings to win the tournament at Torrey Pines outright. But that’s betting them against everyone else. What if you just want to take a side between the two?
DraftKings has the two available in a matchup, with DeChambeau a -136 favorite and Koepka a +105 underdog. However, the book is also running a promotion with either golfer available at +110. Note that the maximum bet on the promo is $25.
Want to see the two in the final group on Sunday? DraftKings has two bets available for a 1-2 finish. DeChambeau finishing first with Koepka second is +28500. Koepka winning with DeChambeau second is also +28500.

PointsBet is offering a few options, including a straight matchup. DeChambeau is -125 with Koepka coming back at -105.
Will one of them wilt under the pressure? DeChambeau to make the cut with Koepka missing the cut is +300; Koepka to make the cut with DeChambeau missing the cut is +400.
On behalf of GolfBet’s Jason Sobel, PointsBet is also offering a boost of +800 for both players to finish in the top-10.
Finally, root for both of them again by betting the winner of the U.S. Open to have a first name starting with the letter “B” at +550. If Brooks or Bryson can’t get it done, maybe Bubba Watson, Brian Harman or Branden Grace can.
