For golf betting fans there are few events if any on the planet that can rival the excitement of the US Open Betting experience.
There are number of golf betting events every week of the year but Grand Slam events and especially the US Open odds competition seem to tower above the rest in terms of quality and competition. Diehard golf betting fans wait for months at a time for these events to roll around and finally, the 2010 US Open betting action has arrived.
On Thursday morning, when the best golfers in the world gather at Pebble Beach to tee off in the 116th US Open odds event, it will be just about as close to heaven on earth as most golf betting fans will get.
This year there will be a bit extra drama when the US Open betting unfolds as Tiger Woods, the #1 ranked golfer in the world will be the favorite in the US Open odds, and even more scrutinized and under the media lens than normal after the tumultuous turn his personal life has taken in the past 6 months.
Woods has only played in a few tournaments since Thanksgiving ’09 and he hasn’t looked sharp in any of them. In fact, he failed to complete back-to-back tournaments for the first time in his golf betting career and has finished well out of the money in his most recent events. He’s also parted ways with his long time swing guru and no one in really knows how he’ll play when the US Open betting action gets underway.
But Tiger has proven time and time again that nobody has a bigger heart than he does and nobody competes has hard as he does. And with the 2010 US Open betting event set to get underway in just a few days you would be crazy to bet against Woods.
Still, there are plenty of other talented players in the US Open odds this year as well. World #2 and the best player on the Tour at the moment, Phil Mickelson, ahs finished 2nd in the US Open betting action a record 4 times but has never closed the deal. Look for him to be especially sharp at Pebble Beach and be in the hunt on Sunday. Ernie Els is another dark horse and Major winner whose paid his dues and could make a big run in the golf betting as well.
But at the end of the day, Tiger is still the man to beat in this year’s US Open betting, especially considering the difficulty of the course and the way he played last time the US Open odds event was held here.
