Betting Odds To Win The 2011 US Open

The most interesting thing I found in the odds for the US Open this week are the long shots. As in fifteen hundred to one. Take a look at this: Beau Hossler, Bennet Blakeman, Brian Locke, Cheng-Tsung Pan, Christo Greyling, John Ellis, Michael Tobiason Jr. and Ty Tryon are all 1500/1 underdogs.

I’ve at least heard of Ty Tyron.

And then there’s the crowd at 1000/1: Adam Hadwin, Adam Long, Alexandre Rocha, Andreas Harto, Andres Gonzales, Brad Benjamin, Brett Patterson, Chris Wilson, Christopher Deforest,
David Chung, David May, Elliot Gealy, Geoffrey Sisk, Jesse Hutchins, Joey Lamielle, Matthew Edwards, Matthew Richardson, Michael Barbosa, Michael Smith, Robert Dinwiddie, Russell Henley, Scott Barr, Scott Pinckney, Steven Irwin, Wes Heffernan and Will Wilcox.

I haven’t heard of any of these guys, but I’ve half a mind to find a bookie and drop ten bucks on one of the fifteen hundred to one players.

On the more positive side, Lee Westwood is the favorite at 11/1, followed closely by Luke Donald at 12/1. Phil Mickelson—my personal favorite because I think he’s due—is at 14/1. Rory McIlroy is at 16/1. He’s not going to win, so forget it. But Dustin Johnson—who nearly won two majors last year—is there at 25/1 along with a pile of other guys: Hunter Mahan, Martin Kaymer, Matt Kuchar, Nick Watney and Steve Stricker.

My fondness for Phil aside, I think the ultimate winner will come out of that 25/1 crowd.

1 thought on “Betting Odds To Win The 2011 US Open”

  1. Here are my fantasy picks-
    Phil, Luke, Bubba, Rory McIllroy, Adam Scott, Byrd, Padraig, YE

    I did some shuffling, I had Graeme and Brandt in there instead of Scott and Byrd, but then I remembered that Steve Williams is going to be on Scott’s bag for the Open – that combined with the granny putter, something could happen.  So I had to do a little shuffling to get Scott in there under my $20m cap.  Brandt and Graeme I think are my longer shots, outside of YE Yang, but Yang is cheap like Padraig – both are bargains, with better odds than their salaries would show.

    G-Mac and Brandt, they are who I would want to win outside of Phil, but honestly their salaries are a little high for what I think their chances are – But then again, both are cheaper than Ben Crane, so I don’t even know what to make of that.  Phil is way overpriced, but I am still going with him – and by Saturday, his salary is so high I can drop him and almost pick up anyone – only Sticker, Else, Johnson, Furyk and Kutcher will be out of my reach.
