Max Homa 2022 US Open Odds, Betting Preview, and Predictions
MAX HOMA 2022 US OPEN ODDS, BETTING PREVIEW, AND PREDICTIONS
Max Homa is one of the more intriguing and challenging players to assess ahead of the 2022 US Open. The 31-year-old has earned half of his PGA Tour victories (2) during the 2022 season, beginning at the Fortinet Championship back in September and more recently at the Wells Fargo Championship in early May.
Homa has not finished outside the top 25 since The Masters, earning a T13 at the PGA Championship during the season's second major. However, with only three weeks separating this performance from his fourth appearance at a US Open, Homa has been consistently good enough to invest in his talent during the season's third major in Brookline, Massachusetts.
It's important to reflect on a player's previous performances on big stages. So let's assess whether or not Homa will have confidence based on his history at this particular major and whether or not he should be a valued prospect to bet on during his fourth appearance at the US Open.
Max Homa US Open Odds
|Top 5 Finish||+900||10%|
|Top 10 Finish||+400||20.00%|
MAX HOMA US OPEN ODDS: WINNER +4500 (Bet $100 to win $4500)
Feeling shocked to see these odds? It turns out Homa has low odds for a reason. As talented as he's been with his irons and putter this year, Homa has missed the cut in all three of his previous appearances at the US Open. He went +14 at Winged Foot Golf Club, which was restored by Gil Hanse, the same architect that restored The Country Club ahead of this weekend. So you're better off saving money and avoiding the 2.17 percent chance Homa has of winning the first major of his career.
MAX HOMA US OPEN ODDS: TOP 5 FINISH +900 (Bet $100 to win $900)
I'm still not loving the chances of Homa making the cut. He has yet to make a cut at any US Open he's competed at, and The Country Club demands precise shots and converting greens in regulation with consistent ease. Homa has struggled with GIR conversion all season, hovering around 65 percent, ranking 112th on the PGA Tour. The field is too deep, and Homa is playing on a course that will challenge his weaknesses. +900 for a T5 finish is too good to be true. Avoid this pitfall, as Homa will struggle to make the cut line.
MAX HOMA US OPEN ODDS: TOP 10 FINISH +400 (Bet $100 to win $400)
If there's any bet to lay on Homa, it's a top-ten finish. The Californian has two solo wins this season and flirted with a T10 finish going T13 at the PGA Championship just a couple of weeks ago. Homa's putter, ranked 20th in strokes gained this season, will be the utility that separates him from his past woes at the US Open. A course that has not seen the PGA Tour circuit since 1988 could benefit Homa due to leveling the playing field. He has four top-ten finishes in 17 events this season, equating to a 20 percent likelihood.
Max Homa Us Open PREDICTION
I may have convinced myself to lay a bet on Homa yielding a T10 finish at his fourth US Open. He has been dreadful in all three previous appearances, but Homa is enjoying a career year on Tour and has strong irons, a hot putter, and two top-five finishes across his past four events. A week off to rest and prepare to make the elusive cut line should serve Homa well, and I believe in his ball-striking enough to take his fifth T10 finish of the season at +400 odds.
