The penultimate golf major in a manic 2020 will finally take place at Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, New York, beginning Thursday when 144 of the sport’s elite will make up a reduced field.
Dustin Johnson is the clear favorite to keep his winning streak in stride after sealing the TOUR Championship and a $15 million payday along with it. He comes in at +750 with for New Jersey customers, though Jon Rahm isn’t far off the pace at +850.
No player has enjoyed finer form than “DJ” since golf resumed following the coronavirus suspension, winning the Northern Trust and tying for second at the PGA Championship, not to mention finishing second to Rahm at the BMW Championship following a play-off defeat.

One name that stands among the contenders is Collin Morikawa, who exploded in popularity following his PGA Championship triumph at TPC Harding Park and has looked ice cold since.
Long story short, there doesn’t seem to be any occasion capable of daunting the 23-year-old, who could mimic Jordan Spieth’s elite surge if he managed to rack up back-to-back majors.
Morikawa isn’t quite shipped out at sleeper odds, but a price of +1600 with bet365 bonus code still leaves room for considerable winnings with even a medium stake.
The Californian followed up his maiden major by taking a share of 20th at the BMW and ending up sixth at the TOUR Championship, now priced at +450 to crack the top five in New York.
Brooks Koepka was the last player to win back-to-back U.S. Open crowns in 2017-18, but the world No. 8 has he’s takin time off to get back to full fitness.
The last five successive U.S. Open winners have each been American—the longest streak since the early ‘90s—though defending champion Gary Woodland looks all but sure to lose his title, listed out at +8000 odds.
