US Open 2017 tips & odds: Best golf betting including favourites, long-shots and more – The Sun

OPEN the book and get ready for one of the biggest betting events in the calendar.

The US Open starts on Thursday (August 15) at the unusual location of Erin Hills in Wisconsin.

It’s the first time the course has hosted a Major – and could lead to a shock for punters.

Hideki Matsuyama is a firm favourite for the US Open

The treeless course is completely exposed to the elements – so anyone you fancy needs to be rock solid in the wind.

We like the look of Hideki Matsuyama (33/1), who can better his T10 at the 2013 tournament.

The Japanese has won two PGA Tour events this season already – and has also finished second on another two occasions.

?US Open: Diamond bet?

DON’T get blown off course in the US Open.

Treeless Erin Hills plays host this year and is completely exposed to the elements.

Anybody worthy of your punting cash needs to be rock solid in the wind.

So take Sun Bets’ 33/1 for Hideki Matsuyama to lift the prize.

American Rickie Fowler (20/1) has served his apprenticeship and is ready for a place at the adult’s table.

The 28-year-old has never won a Major and is running into some form and is one of the best in the business at the short stuff.

Fancy an each-way shot?

There are some big prices around for each-way shots who could be in the reckoning.

This is the first ever professional tournament at Erin Hills – but there are some clues from previous events.

Peter Uihlein (200/1) made the quarter-finals of a Match Play event there at the 2011 US Amateur Championship.

So he holds great each-way value.

Another is Kevin Chappell (66/1) who has won the Texas Open recently and looks well-suited to the Majors.

He’s had two top-7 finishes out of his last five tournaments and could well spring a surprise this weekend.
