Via CRIS, the players getting the most tickets to win the US Open are Phil Mickelson (7%), Rory McIlroy (5%), and surprisingly Brooks Koepka (5%). Koepka is a 50:1 longshot to win but he’s a popular pick, so he may be a trendy underdog to avoid.

Another popular underdog, Branden Grace, received multiple max bets to win the US Open at Westgate in Las Vegas, Nevada. He’s now their biggest liability to win the tournament there.

Over at CG Technology, Dustin Johnson is receiving the most tickets to win it and it’s the same at William Hill. Dustin Johnson (6%), Jason Day (6%), Jordan Spieth (5%) and Phil Mickelson (5%) are receiving the most tickets to win the US Open at William Hill, but it’s Jason Day (12%) and Jordan Spieth (11%) are getting the most money wagered:

Rory McIlroy is getting just 4% of tickets and 8% of money there despite +700 odds, which makes him an intriguing pick for this week.

Jason Day -115 vs. Rory McIlroy -105
Rory McIlroy -135 vs. Jordan Spieth +115
Justin Rose -120 vs. Phil Mickelson +100
Adam Scott -125 vs. Bubba Watson +105

Yes +225, No -300

Lowest Tournament Round Score
66 or lower: +170
Exactly 67: +190
68 or higher: +130

Lowest Tournament Score

If you don’t have the patience to wait four days for your bet to pay out, CRIS is offering odds on the 1st round leader. Although many sportsbooks award half the payout to each competitor in the event of a tie (i.e. +800 pays out +400), CRIS uses most eagles as the first tie-breaker, followed by most birdies.

Here are the first round leader odds at Bookmaker.
