Webb Simpson (+2500)

One of the many past US Open and major champs in the field, Simpson has also won twice in 2020 with four other top-10 finishes in just 12 events. His 2012 victory at the Olympic Club came with a winning score of plus-1, and he was the only member of the final top 10 to break par in both weekend rounds in a come-from-behind win.

He’s first on the PGA Tour this year in Bogey Avoidance, seventh in 3-Putt Avoidance, sixth in Strokes Gained: Approach and T-16 in SG: Tee-to-Green. He tied for 10th in the 2018 US Open and finished T-16 last year at Pebble Beach Golf Links.

2020 US Open Betting Picks – Contender

Martin Kaymer (+10000)

The 2014 US Open champion at Pinehurst No. 2 won by eight strokes with no other player finishing better than minus-1. He hasn’t won a PGA Tour event since, but he has moved up from 126th in the Official World Golf Ranking to 88th entering this week.

He has four top 10s in nine European Tour events in 2020. His odds would be much lower if those results had come in North America.

2020 US Open Betting Picks – Long shot

Sergio Garcia (+12500)

This is an absurd price for the 2017 Masters champion. He has just five top-10 finishes in 20 career appearances at the US Open, but he was T-5 as recently as 2016 when Johnson won at minus-4 by three strokes over a trio of runners-up. Garcia has three top 10s in 12 international events in 2020 but two of those were on the European circuit.

He’s fourth on Tour through 32 measured rounds in SG: Tee-to-Green.
