Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth co-favorites to win 2018 US Open during Shinnecock Hills

The 2018 Players Championship is done, and Webb Simpson’s ancestral performance has been filed divided in a annals for good. Simpson never truly threatened a 24-under scoring record set by Greg Norman during TPC Sawgrass, though his opening was one of a best we’ve seen in new years during any event, most reduction a contest like The Players.

As a result, his U.S. Open contingency have dropped. As a former champion of that contest total with a approach he putted during TPC Sawgrass, Simpson is now one of a handful of semi-dark horses during 60-1. 

The favorites for a second vital of 2018 sojourn Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth. Both had muted finishes during Sawgrass, though both have won this contest before. Tiger Woods‘ contingency have also dropped, and he’s now among a favorites. Here’s a demeanour during where things mount right now, according to GolfOdds.com.


  • Dustin Johnson: 10-1
  • Jordan Spieth: 10-1
  • Rory McIlroy: 12-1
  • Justin Thomas: 14-1
  • Jason Day: 14-1
  • Rickie Fowler: 14-1

I like Fowler and Thomas during those aloft numbers. Spieth is not as unchanging as you’d like to see during this indicate in a season, nonetheless I’ll start betting opposite him during majors approximately never. McIlroy during Shinnecock is going to be interesting. The USGA is apparently tightening fairways so it will take an insanely accurate week from a prolonged motorist (like we saw from Brooks Kopeka final year and Dustin Johnson in 2016) to take this crown.

Other Favorites

  • Tiger Woods: 20-1
  • Justin Rose: 20-1
  • Hideki Matsuyama: 30-1
  • Henrik Stenson: 30-1
  • Patrick Reed: 30-1
  • Brooks Koepka: 30-1
  • Phil Mickelson: 30-1
  • Sergio Garcia: 30-1

Who would have suspicion after final year’s U.S. Open win by Koepka that not even one year after Woods, who only finished T11 during The Players, would have improved contingency than him? we adore Koepka during that number, by a way, and we also like Garcia during 30-1. we don’t adore a rest, nonetheless Justin Rose during 20-1 is during slightest intriguing.

Dark Horses

In respect of sports gambling being ratified on Monday, we would like to squeeze all of a “Tommy Fleetwood during 40-1” tickets, appreciate you. Cantlay, Finau and DeChambeau are all really intriguing plays here. If you’re wagering on somebody like Finau or Watson, you’re radically only anticipating they have insanely accurate pushing weeks since it’s going to be easier (or “easier”) for a prolonged bomber who’s attack it true to win on this march in this week than it would be normally. Interestingly, Adam Scott is not even in a margin yet.
