Welcome to our third major championship of 2022, the U.S. Open at The Country Club in Brookline, Mass.
For those of you who aren’t too familiar with the betting market for these tournaments, welcome.
Normally, we don’t get odds for golf tournaments on Sunday night. For majors, though, we do. Odds have been posted for this tournament since Jon Rahm won last year at Torrey Pines, and they normally aren’t as up-to-date as usual PGA TOUR odds are on Monday mornings.
At some point late on Sunday or early Monday, the odds will reset and look a bit more normal for those who follow the sport closely. That means there could be value found before the betting market really takes shape for the week.
Have no fear, our GolfBet staff is here to help. Check out three of our experts’ picks to lock in right away this week ahead of the U.S. Open.
2022 U.S. Open Picks
Shane Lowry +3500
Jason Sobel: I’ve had a few players earmarked for this event over the past few months, but Lowry stands out as a strong outright value with high upside more than anyone else.
It’s tough to argue that the former Open Championship winner isn’t best suited for that major, considering his background and prior success, but I’ve always believed that Lowry might be similarly primed to win a U.S. Open.
Lowry has made the cut in six of his last seven starts and while he hasn’t seriously contended since a runner-up result at Oakmont six years ago, Lowry is inarguably playing some of the best golf of his life right now. Earlier this year, he fell victim to an untimely rain storm at the Honda Classic, which helped keep him from winning that title, but he soon afterward suggested that karma could manifest itself in a special week at the Masters — and it did, in the form of a T-3 result.
Lowry wasn’t wrong about that suggestion, but there’s a chance his best is still yet to come this year. He’s continually been on the brink of his next victory and it shouldn’t surprise anyone if it happens this week.
Tommy Fleetwood +6500
Matt Vincenzi: Tommy Fleetwood has shown flashes of brilliance throughout his career in U.S. Opens. He finished fourth in 2017 and second in 2018, which I’d argue are his two biggest highlights as a professional in the United States.
It’s easy to see why the Englishman has thrived in USGA difficult setups. At his best, he hits plenty of fairways and is a greens-in-regulation machine. In his past five starts, he’s thriving in those aspects of his game. He’s gaining 1.8 strokes on the field in Good Drives Gained and 3.7 strokes on the field in Greens in Regulation Gained.
The 31-year-old finished 14th at The Masters and fifth at the PGA Championship. It’s no secret that he’s had a tough time winning golf tournaments in the United States, but he is undoubtedly a great fit for difficult major-championship tests.
Max Homa +5000
Joshua Perry: Homa is a guy I’ll keep looking to in majors as long as he stays in this mid-tier range. He’s shown on multiple occasions the ability to play well against strong fields on some of the tougher courses.
Homa’s current form is where it needs to be. He hasn’t finished outside of the top 25 since the Masters, including a win during that run at the Wells Fargo. He has all aspects of his game in solid shape, as well, gaining strokes in every category during his last two events.
