The 120th edition of the US Open will be hosted by the Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, NY. This particular location is one of the game’s most historic and challenging venues, with a rich history of exciting wins and heart-crushing losses. With that being said, it makes it all the more difficult to decipher US Open betting.

US Open Odds

The odds will change from time to time due to the rise and fall of how each golfer plays throughout the golfing season. The players obviously still have to make the cut and proceed to the later rounds.

Top 10 Players By Golf Ranking

This is a unique list that I like to include to compare and contrast each player for US Open betting and how they stack up to the rest of the competition. These golfers have played consistently well enough to make the top 10 in the official world golf ranking list.

Top Five Picks That Could Win

Brooks Koepka, the overall No. 1 golfer in the world, came in second at the US Open last year. He had previously won two consecutive years in a row before being outplayed by Gary Woodland. I look for Koepka to really try to snag this one back.

Jon Rahm is the fifth overall golfer in the world. He tied for third place in the event last year and was only six strokes behind tying for first place. A few mistakes here and there ultimately cost him the event. I look for him to make up for that this time.

Gary Woodland is the defending champion of this event. He is the 14th overall best golfer in the world and has had a great year so far, placing in the top five of two events. He is surely a fan favorite to repeat a win at the Winged Foot Club.

Phil Mickelson is another long-time fan favorite. He is ranked 53rd overall and has a tremendous resume of golf wins over the past and present. But he has not had a great year so far. However, I believe he will be motivated to play for that one win at the US Open to finally have his career grand slam.

Xander Schauffele also tied for third place at the US Open last year. Being the overall ninth-best golfer in the world, he has played at a very high and consistent level over the past few years. He had six top 10 finishes for 2019, and he seems to be just a few strokes away from winning most of these events.

Who Wins At Winged Foot? 

A lot of interesting US Open betting questions surround these golfers. Can Mickelson finally land his career Grand Slam? Can Koepka claim his third title in four years? Will Tiger Woods grab a fourth title? Is Woodland going to defend his title, or is a new name going to replace his?

I believe we will have a new name in the winning column for the 2020 US Open. That golfer is none other than Xander Schauffele.

For the end of 2019, he placed second at the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions and tied for 10th place at the Zozo Championship. So he already has two top 10 finishes this golfing season.

Over the past three years, Schauffele has finished in the top 10 at 17 events. When he does finish in the top 10, he is usually in the top five, meaning he was only a few strokes away from claiming victory at an event. He has done this consistently enough to make me believe that he has potentially learned from his mistakes and will pull through to win at this event.
