Rory McIlroy 2022 US Open Odds, Betting Preview and Predictions
RORY MCILROY 2022 US OPEN ODDS, BETTING PREVIEW, AND PREDICTIONS
It's enticing to bet on Rory McIlroy as the favorite after his commanding win during the RBC Canadian Open. But will you bet on the Irishman to secure his first major of the 2022 PGA season? He's undoubtedly riding momentum from his play over the last two months.
McIlroy currently possesses the best odds at +1000 to be the outright winner of the 2022 US Open. Still, this weekend will be a heavyweight battle with all of the elite prospects competing at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts.
Are you confident to lay down a wager on the player with the best odds to win outright? Or would you rather play it safe and dip into the odds for McIlroy to produce a top-five or top-ten finish instead? Let's jump into the US Open odds and find out.
Rory McIlroy 2022 US Open Odds
|Top 5 Finish||+300||25%|
|Top 10 Finish||+140||41.67%|
RORY MCILROY US OPEN ODDS: WINNER +1000 (Bet $100 to win $1000)
It's feeling like 2011 all over again for Rory McIlroy in 2022. His only win at a US Open happened 11 years ago. The 33-year old native of Northern Ireland carries a lot of momentum into Brookline, having just earned his second win of the season at the RBC Canadian Open. He's capable of playing elite golf but will he do it across all four rounds? Or save it for the final two days? At +1000, he has high expectations, which could weigh heavy on his mind.
RORY MCILROY US OPEN ODDS: TOP 5 FINISH +300 (Bet $100 to win $300)
+300 odds is still a handsome payout, especially knowing that McIlroy carries a 25 percent implied probability of winding up with a top-five finish at The Country Club. After a string of missed cuts from 2016-2018, he's yielded T9, T8, and T7 finishes at courses such as Pebble Beach, Winged Foot, and Torrey Pines. It could finally be the year we see McIlroy return to a top-five finish at the US Open.
RORY MCILROY US OPEN ODDS: TOP 10 FINISH +140 (Bet $100 to win $140)
The safest way to tail McIlroy at a rigorous course like The Country Club is to invest in a top-ten finish. It would be the fourth consecutive top-ten finish for the star player at the US Open, albeit at a much older course restored by Gil Hanse. McIlroy succeeded with a T8 at Hanse's other course at Winged Foot during the 2020 US Open, so he's a lock to finish inside the top-ten in Boston this weekend.
Rory McIlroy US Open PREDICTION
After much deliberation, I've settled on betting Rory to finish inside the top-five at +300 odds. He's been on the cusp of a top-five finish for the past three seasons at the US Open and he's going to find himself playing on a course that rewards irons and challenges all putters with Poa Annua greens. Most enticing, McIlroy has finishes of 2, 5, 8, T18, and 1st leading into Thursday in Brookline. Take the value at +300 and enjoy watching another dominant performance from McIlroy.
