We’ve reached the third major of 2022. While the course is about to get insanely tough and the course is packed with the best in the world, it seems like golf itself hasn’t been the story this week in Brookline, Massachusetts.
With a competitive tour taking shape and its players on the US Open course at The Country Club, the world’s focus is on the off-course issues surrounding golf. However, by Thursday morning, the players will be playing and we will be ready for four fantastic days of golf in which the elite players of the game will look like amateurs at times.
The US Open is known for its difficulty, and The Country Club at Brookline will be no different this week. The roughs will be punishing, the greens will be lightning fast and require absolute precision.
It will be a pleasure to watch golf fans everywhere.
Last week our staff lit up, hitting three of their six picks at odds of +450, +120 and -115 for the RBC Canadian Open.
Check out their picks and detailed breakdowns for the third golf major of 2022 below.
The best US Open 2022 bets
Brooks Koepka – Miss Cut (+140)
chris murphy: Since I have a card full of better bets this week, I’m going to go a bit off the board with a support for the US Open.
Much of what we’ll hear about Brooks Koepka the rest of this week will be about his interview on Tuesday, during which he cast a shadow over the questions he was asked and didn’t take a firm stand on his future. He’ll have that hanging over him in an event where he doesn’t need distractions to fight.
Koepka arrives in his worst form at the big events this year, having missed cuts at THE PLAYERS and Masters, which was followed by a T55 at the PGA Championship. Certainly he has always excelled at the US Open, but it’s hard to see him as the same Koepka who has two wins and two more top-four finishes in his last four appearances at this major.
Koepka’s 2022 has been plagued by injuries, and the added cloud hanging over him won’t help this week in what is annually the toughest test in golf. This seems to be setting up another big tournament where the weekend is played without Koepka on the field.
Jon Rahm +1600
matthew vicenzi: The last time I remember Jon Rahm being +1600 or higher was the 2020 Memorial Tournament, which he won. You don’t often hear that a player in this price range is a “value” game, but this is absolutely one.
Despite his relative struggles this season, Rahm remains the best golfer in the world off the tee. In a US Open, long and straight is the recipe for success, and he is as long and straight as possible.
The Spaniard has only missed tee shots in one of his last 42 measured events on TOUR. That event was his most recent start at Memorial, which I’m comfortable labeling an outlier.
The Country Club is going to play incredibly challenging off the tee. Rahm is simply the most reliable player in the world off the tee, and I am confident that he will put himself in the optimal position for his second shot more often than not.
The 27-year-old would be the first to tell you that it has been a low year relative to his expectations. But Rahm’s “low year” still ranks him first in strokes gained: off the tee and second in greens in regulation gained in his last 24 rounds.
Max Home +5000
Joshua Perry: Homa is a guy I will continue to look for in the majors as long as he stays in this midrange. He has shown on multiple occasions the ability to play well against strong courses on some of the toughest courses.
The current form of Homa is where it needs to be. He hasn’t finished outside the top 25 since the Masters, including a win during that run at Wells Fargo. He also has all aspects of the game on him in solid form, winning strokes in every category during his last two events.
Tony Finau +2200 and Matthew Fitzpatrick +1800 (Winner without special — DraftKings)
Derek Farnsworth: I usually try to stay away from alternative golf markets as they are usually full of juice to the point where you can’t bet. However, DraftKings has an absolutely interesting market that I have my eye on this week. He is the winner without Justin Thomas, Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy, Scottie Scheffler and Xander Schauffele.
Essentially, it’s a bet on who will finish better if we remove the five biggest favorites from the equation.
This type of bet seems perfect for both Finau and Fitzpatrick. They are known for their ability to compete each week rather than their ability to win.
After months of struggling, Finau is finally getting back into shape. He finished fourth at Colonial where he won 7.4 strokes from tee to green, and finished second at Canada last week where he won 11.8 strokes from tee to green. Finau’s driver returns to work and that will be essential this week at El Country Club.
You’ll probably hear this 100 times throughout the week, but Fitzpatrick won the 2013 US Amateur here in 2013. While I’m not putting much into it, it certainly doesn’t hurt. He’s always talked about playing his best on fast, firm golf courses and barring rain, that’s what we can expect this week. He has added distance off the tee this year, has won approach shots in 11 straight events and has one of the best short games on the PGA TOUR.
Again, they do not need to win to win this bet. We only need one to finish top of the leaderboard if we take out Rahm, Rory, JT, Scheffler and Schauffele.
Patrick Cantlay +2500
landon silinski: In four career US Open starts, Cantlay has yet to miss a cut, and he boasts a pair of top-20 finishes. His lack of success in the majors is really an enigma because he is truly one of the most talented golfers on the planet and has virtually no weaknesses in his game. He is good both on and around the greens to go along with his elite ball stroke, which is pretty rare. Unsurprisingly, he ranks fourth in this field in Total Strokes earned in his last 48 rounds.
We know that Cantlay does some of his best work on shorter tracks, best demonstrated by his success at Sherwood, TPC Summerlin and Harbourtown. We have a 7,200-yard par 70 this week and I’m expecting big things from the fourth-ranked player in the world. He should be pretty comfortable with these poa greens too, since he’s a California native.
This could very well be the week Cantlay captures that elusive first major of his career, and I won’t miss it.
Xander Schauffele +2200
Bryan Berryman: Everything seems to be lining up for Xander Schauffele this week at Brookline.
We have a great player coming in great form, to a tournament format where he has had great success during his career. In his five starts at the US Open, Schauffele has finished seventh, sixth, fifth, fifth and third. He has never finished outside the top 10, which is incredible given the difficulty of the courses presented by the USGA and the strength of these courses.
Over the last 24 rounds, Xander ranks 8th in this field in Strokes Earned: Approach and 18th in Fairways Won, while also ranking in the top 25 in Bogeys Avoided and Birdies or Better Won. This lethal combination of hitting and scoring should fit right in with what The Country Club will be demanding of players this week, and ticks all the boxes I’m looking for in a winner.
Schauffele is currently at the top of the list of the best golfers in the world without winning a major championship. His complete game from tee to green is tailor-made for the big championships and should put him in contention down the stretch again this week. I think this is the time for Schauffele to remove his name from that aforementioned list.
