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

We saw the stars rise to the top over the weekend at the RBC Canadian Open as three of the big names in the game battled it out down the stretch on Sunday.

Rory McIlroy prevailed for his second win of the season and his second consecutive Canadian Open victory dating back to 2019 when they last held the event due to the pandemic.

It wasn’t without some pressure though as Justin Thomas tied him through sixteen holes and Tony Finau lingered throughout, but ultimately Rory’s Sunday 62 was too much for the other contenders to overcome.

Now,  those same stars will join everyone in Brookline, Massachusetts for this week’s U.S. Open. The third major of the season will come from The Country Club for the first time since 1988.

The classic course will be put to the test with today’s game playing much different than it did thirty-three years ago. We know the USGA will set it up as tough as they can and there are videos alluding to that this week.

I expect a grind as has become tradition for this major and I’ll be looking for players that are poised to handle that grind as I find my best bets for the tournament.

U.S. Open Buys

Patrick Cantlay +2500

There are plenty of good looking ways to build out a card this week for the U.S. Open and there is likely to be more value to open up as the week moves forward. The talent of this field allows for some of the elite talents to drop back a bit in the odds market and I really like how I am able to build out with my three picks for Brookline.

Cantlay starts it off for me at +2500 on PointBet, which is a really solid number for a player that despite some struggles has five top-5 finishes this year, including his t3 at the Memorial just a couple of weeks ago.

The result at Jack’s event is what has me the most bullish on him coming into the U.S. Open as he really blew his chance to contend for the win there with a tough opening round, but came all the way back to a top finish across the final 54-holes.

Cantlay gained 4.3 shots on the field on approach in those final three rounds and will carry that momentum into this major championship. I love that we get an inflated number on last year’s player of the year in a spot where I see him as trending back towards the elite play we saw in 2021.

Collin Morikawa +3000

I’m going to be the number here on the talent that we know is inside of Collin Morikawa. We haven’t seen it product much in the way of results lately, but no one would be surprised if he is in the mix for the week this weekend in Brookline.

Morikawa is coming in off of a missed cut and is seeking his first top 25 finish since the Masters at the start of April. That’s the bad. The good is that he is still flashing the elite iron play that we expect out of the two-time major winner. He gained 5.6 shots on approach at the Charles Schwab and 7.1 at the Heritage.

The problem in both those instances came back to the balky putter that can always be a factor for him. I am willing to take the gamble on the putting stroke as he really has everything else in place to contend this week. He ranks 7th on TOUR this season in Total Driving (Distance Rank + Accuracy Rank), which is always a key stat for the U.S. Open.

If he combines that ability with the good portion of his irons and a strong putting week many will be kicking themselves for not being in on Morikawa at +3000.

Daniel Berger +5000

I’ve been hesitant on Daniel Berger really going back to the beginning of the year when he was forced to withdraw from the his title defense at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. He played great shortly after that at the Honda Classic where he blew a big lead into Sunday and finished fourth.

Since then, his results have been middling as he seemingly alternated struggles on approach and on the greens. The pair finally came together for him most recently at the Memorial where he finished in a tie for 5th and gained 5.4 shots on approach with another 6.6 putting.

Berger seems to be starting to put it all together at just the right time for a tournament that I would argue sets up for his best chance at a major. I have always viewed him as a grinder with the ability to be strong with every club in his bag tee to green and the ceiling on the greens to capture a big win.

He has gained better than two shots on approach in three of his last four events with two of those gaining more than five shots with his irons. Berger is still an elite talent when he has his game and I like the trends I am seeing especially at some solid odds heading into the week.
