A winner last week at the St Jude, Dustin Johnson should be considered at threat at 28/1 to win the US Open (Betfred) and fellow American Jason Dufner, 30/1 with Paddy Power, will also look to continue his excellent form of 2012 which has seen him win 2 of his last 4 events.
Staying with Americans, Matt Kuchar (33/1, Ladbrokes), Hunter Mahan (40/1, Boylesports) and Steve Stricker (45/1, Coral) will all be popular while Tiger Woods heads the market and is possibly the one to beat at 15/2 via Blue Square.
Of the Europeans, Brits in particular, Lee Westwood leads the charge as BetVictor’s 12/1 shot and Rory McIlroy is 15/1 with Totesport to retain his title but it’s Luke Donald, looking to improve his US Open record, who looks menacing when he plays and is 14/1 at Sportingbet.
In an event traditionally dominated by Americans, only 2 players from the US have won the US Open in 8 years so William Hill’s 13/8 about a European winner could be a good bet. Angel Cabrera is 250/1 (bet365) to recreate his 2007 win.
