2013 U.S. Open at Merion Betting Odds Plus Free Super Value Picks

Ah yes, it’s U.S. Open week, and with it comes the ever-tempting allure of winning some green on the USGA’s pinnacle event.  Below are the updated U.S. Open Betting odds, which have seen some heavy movement since we last posted the odds following the Masters.  

Most notably, 2011 U.S. Open Champion Rory McIlroy’s odds to win have jumped from an opening of 10/1 all the way up to 20/1.  That swoosh is jettisoning in the wrong direction.

Tiger’s odds were at 5/1 following the Masters, fell to as low as 3/1 after his win at the PLAYERS Championship and have gone back up to 9/2 (4.5/1) following his struggle at the Memorial.

Here’s the value that I see for the season’s second major:

Luke Donald 33/1- Has a serious knack for playing tight, traditional and challenging courses well.  Due for a run at his first major and a little extra juice available in his payout since he’s been relatively quiet this year.

Jason Dufner 50/1- Zero top tens for the #Dufnering star so far this year have these odds heavily inflated, but when it comes down to it his ball-striking prowess and Hogan obsession make his game a perfect fit to this track.

Kevin Chappell 100/1- Finished t-3rd at the ’11 Open at Congressional and t-10th last year, also comes in off a very impressive solo 2nd at Memorial in his last event.

Kyle Stanley 100/1 (not listed below since just became eligible)- Been red hot of late with 3 top 6s in past five events, including two solo 3rds.  Also one of the few with tourney experience at the Merion, as he played in the ’05 U.S. Am here.
