there is no clear cut favorite heading into this year’s US Open Championship. And that makes the 2010 US Open betting championship arguably the most interesting Grand Slam event in recent PGA betting memory.
As most sports betting fans know Woods is not in good form. The US Open odds makers are hesitant to even list him as a competitor in the upcoming Grand Slam event as it’s unknown whether he’ll even be physically able to compete in the US Open odds competition.
He recently withdrew from a PGA betting tournament with a neck injury and has put an indefinite hold on his golfing right now. But even without the neck injury Woods’ chances in the US Open betting looked slim. He can back after a five month hiatus filled with personal turmoil to finish fourth at the Masters. However, after an erratic performance at Augusta things only went downhill as he missed the cut at the next PGA betting event he entered and was on pace to most likely miss the cut in the last golf betting tournament before he withdrew with his neck injury.
Without Woods in the field or any dominant player in the upcoming US Open betting the sports wagering for this event will take on a dimension that it hasn’t had for quite some time. Obviously Woods hasn’t won the US Open betting contest every year he’s entered. But he has been the overwhelming favorite in the golf betting at this tournament every year he’s entered.
And that made the US Open betting somewhat predictable.
But not this year. The US Open betting this year is wide open and as exciting as it’s been in decades. Right now Phil Mickelson is playing some of the best golf of his career and has already bagged one Grand Slam title this year at Augusta. But that hardly guarantees a win at the US Open where anything can and usually does happen.
