The Odds-On Favorite To Win The 2017 U.S. Open:  Dustin Johnson 7-1 

It’s tough to look past DJ. If not for a three-putt, he would be working towards his third straight U.S. Open Championship. That’s how well numero uno has been hitting the ball the past couple of years.

After winning two straight championships, the Genesis Open and the WGC-Mexico, DJ has finished twelfth and thirteenth in his last tournaments played. I wouldn’t worry so much about that if you like DJ heading into the U.S. Open. From now until the major on June 15, he’s going to practice shots.

He’s a deserving favorite, no doubt. But, I’ve never bet on a golfer at single-digit odds to win a major tournament. I’m not going to start now. I’ll look elsewhere.

The Smart Pick To Win The 2017 U.S. Open:  Justin Rose 15-1

I don’t like Rory McIlroy at 9 to 1. I’m not in love with Jordan Spieth at 10-1. Jason Day at 12-1 has some attraction. But, Justin Rose at 15 to 1 makes the most sense to me. Rose has never won a major tournament. He lost to Sergio Garcia in a playoff at Augusta in April. That’s the closest he’s ever gotten to taking home a major tournament trophy.

It appears as if Rose is saving his best for the majors. He finished thirty-eighth, thirteenth, and fifteenth before the second-place finish at the Masters. He just finished sixty-fifth at TPC-Sawgrass in a tournament from May 11 through May 14.

Rose figures to try shots he’s going to need in the next couple of tournaments. The veteran golfer knows exactly what he needs to do so that he’s at his best on June 15. I love the odds and I love his chances.

The Longshot Pick To Win The 2017 U.S. Open: Thomas Pieters 40-1

The Belgian golfer plays in the U.S. Open for the first time. It won’t matter. He played in the Masters for the first time earlier this year. All he did was finish tied for fourth. Pieters has no fear. In the Ryder Cup last year, he went 4 and 1 versus the Americans. I think he can pull off the upset. At 40 to 1, he’s definitely worth considering.
