Odds To Win The 2011 US Open - April 12, 2011

It’s not too early to start taking a look at the odds for the year’s next major: The US Open. Played this year at Congressional Country Club, site of Ken Venturi’s heroic 1964 win, and Ernie Els triumph in 1997, Congressional also has hosted a PGA Championship and a US Senior Open.

To what should be no one’s surprise, the bettors again are favoring Tiger Woods, who is in at 6/1. Somewhat surprisingly, I think, Phil Mickelson is just after at 10/1. Phil has never won a US Open, and his early season performance does not inspire me to think this will be the one. But money is headed in his direction nonetheless.

Lee Westwood and Rory McIlroy are in at 16/1. Not good bets, in my mind. Luke Donald and Martin Kaymer are at 20/1. Dustin Johnson and Nick Watney are in at 25/1.

Masters Winner Charl Schwartzel clocks in at 33/1, along with Geoff Ogilvy, Graeme McDowell, Matt Kuchar and Paul Casey.

My money would be on none of the favorites. I think that the talent in golf is so deep and so even right now that any one of a hundred golfers could pull off a victory. In fact, I’d bet on any BUT the leaders. Is there a bet for someone outside the top ten?
