Bet the U.S. Open, Win $200 (No Matter What!)

Another major tournament means we have a few props to target.

I found three this week that caught my eye as we head into the U.S. Open at The Country Club.

Mackenzie Hughes — Top Canadian  (+470, FanDuel)

We’ll open here with Hughes to come out of this group of six players headlined by Corey Conners and Adam Hadwin.

Hughes has been up and down this year, but has put together a couple of solid results pat Memorial and Canadian Open heading into this week. He also showed last year he can have success on a USGA set-up, contending at Torrey Pines until he faded late on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Conners has never made a U.S. Open cut and tends to struggle quite a bit with poa greens. Hadwin’s results have always been spotty at this event as well, with no finish better than 39th place.

There also might be a bit a tee time draw edge for Hughes. I doubt we’ll see anything close to the advantage at the PGA Championship, but if the forecast holds for the morning/afternoon wave could get a small boost. Hughes is the only one of the top four in that draw with Conners, Hadwin and Nick Taylor, all playing in the reverse group.

Alex Noren — Top Scandinavian (+375, Hard Rock)

This is a bit of a play against Viktor Hovland, who’s the odds-on favorite of this bunch. Hovland’s game isn’t in bad shape, but the results have been pedestrian for someone of his talent. He doesn’t have a finish better than 18th at the Match Play event in his last seven starts.

Hovland also drew the afternoon-morning wave, but he should still has the talent to survive. However, Noren is coming off a solid week in Sweden where his all-around game was intact and he’s also in the better wave.

Along with Hovland, the next players after Noren — Thorbjorn Olesen and Sebastian Soderberg — are on the other side of the draw. The edge might be minor at best, but we’ll take a chance on it here as well.

Travis Vick & Michael Thorbjornsen — Top Amateur (Hard Rock)

The top amateur bet has been the most difficult for me to track down, but is one of my favorites for this event each year.

We have a group of 15 to choose from and I’m going with Vick at +1000 and Thorbjornsen at +1400 odds. Both were ranked inside the NCAA top 20 this past season according to Golfstat.

Vick is coming off match-play wins in the semifinals and finals, which helped lead Texas to a national title. Thorbjornsen has the local edge being the reigning Massachusetts state amateur champion.

Both drew early tee times as well, which could be even more important. The pros have a higher talent level to overcome a small disadvantage with the draw as we saw when Justin Thomas won the PGA Championship.

But for the amateur, they’ll need every break they can get to make the weekend. And with 15 players in this group, it’s extremely likely a couple make the cut and so any minor advantage could be the difference.
