The 2020 US Open is set to take place at Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, N.Y. Sept. 17-20 under the PGA Tour’s revised 2020 schedule. Below, we look at the US Open betting odds, with PGA Tour predictions, picks and best bets.

Bryson DeChambeau (+2800)
DeChambeau was in top form before the PGA Tour season came to a halt as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. He tied for fifth at The Genesis Invitational, was the runner-up at the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship and finished fourth at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
If he can return to form when the golf season resumes in mid-June, these odds will quickly start to drop.
New to sports betting? A $10 bet on DeChambeau to win the 2020 US Open returns a profit of $280.

Webb Simpson (+3300)
Simpson currently holds top spot in the Golfweek/Sagarin world rankings. The 2012 US Open champ won the Waste Management Phoenix Open in February to cap a stretch of five straight top-10 results. He tied for 16th at the 2019 US Open, 10th at the 2018 US Open and fifth at last year’s Masters Tournament. Fifteen golfers currently have lower odds.

Gary Woodland (+5000)
The defending US Open champ has racked up five other top-10 results in 16 worldwide events since his breakout major victory. He tied for eighth at The Honda Classic in his last event before the season was put on pause.
He’s one of the longest hitters on Tour and he proved last year he can putt on the lightning-quick US Open greens.
Viktor Hovland (+8000)
Hovland was the low amateur at last year’s US Open with a T-12 finish in just his second career major appearance. He earned his first PGA Tour victory earlier this year at the Puerto Rico Open and sits 38th in the Golfweek rankings. He’s exceptionally strong off the tee and few match his success when going for the green.

Cameron Smith (+10000)
Smith earned his first solo PGA Tour win at the Sony Open in Hawaii early in 2020. He tied for fourth in his US Open debut in 2015, but he has a missed cut and a top finish of just T-59 in three appearances since. He’s one of the Tour’s best putters and was gaining .775 strokes per round with the flat stick early in the 2019-20 season.
Kevin Na (+15000)
Na is a four-time PGA Tour winner, including two victories in 2019 and one in 2018. He finished seventh at the 2016 US Open but followed it up with a T-32 in 2017 and a missed cut last year (he didn’t play in 2018). Only six listed golfers have longer odds.
