2021 US Open odds, picks and predictions for Bryson DeChambeau
The 121st US Open takes place this week at Torrey Pines in La Jolla, California, and Bryson DeChambeau enters as the reigning champion. He won the 2020 US Open by six strokes at Winged Foot Golf Club in the fall. Below, we look at the 2021 US Open odds for Bryson DeChambeau and make our PGA Tour picks and predictions to win.
DeChambeau enters the week at No. 6 in the Golfweek/Sagarin world rankings. He won the Arnold Palmer Invitational in early March and tied for third at The Players Championship the next week. While he tied for 46th at the Masters and for 38th at the PGA Championship, he's rightfully among the favorites for the third major of the year.
DeChambeau missed the cut at the 2018 Farmers Insurance Open in his only appearance at Torrey Pines to date. However, that tournament was long before DeChambeau's added power and distance.
Odds and best bets for Bryson DeChambeau at the 2021 US Open
Outright winner: +1800
The reigning champion, DeChambeau is a decent value with a share of the third-best odds to win this week. He has shown his top form with a win already this year and we know his new game is well-suited to the difficult conditions of the US Open.
DeChambeau leads all qualified golfers with 1.16 Strokes Gained: Off-the-Tee per round.
Top-10 finish: +170
DeChambeau is +350 for a top-5 finish, but we're still getting plus money with five extra places of insurance. Ignore his limited experience at Torrey Pines; he's fully capable of handling the thick rough, and he has already mastered major-caliber greens.
Top American: +1100
There's a considerably higher payout for DeChambeau to win outright, but he's a fine bet to be the Top American with a share of the second-best odds in the pool. This hedges the chance of tournament favorite Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy, or another international golfer winning the US Open.
Top former winner: +450
PASS on this nine-man pool. The odds don't provide enough value to bet against what's still the top competition in the tournament, including World No. 1 Dustin Johnson.
Tournament match betting: Bryson DeChambeau vs. Brooks Koepka (+100)
DeChambeau and Koepka each have a win this year, but DeChambeau has three other top-10 finishes while Koepka has two runner-ups, including the PGA Championship. That performance was confirmation the two-time US Open champ is fully recovered from knee surgery earlier this year.
Take the value with the four-time major champ at even money. He has more experience at Torrey Pines and has also seemed more publicly motivated to come out on top in golf's biggest rivalry.
