US Open 2022 picks, best predictions, pitch, best bets, odds: Golf expert backs Scottie Scheffler
Written by admin_3fxxacau

The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts was the site of one of the biggest upsets in golf history, and many players will be looking to upset the 2022 US Open. The Country Club also has hosted the 1963 and 1988 US Opens, but the 1913 event made history. It was then that 20-year-old local amateur Francis Ouimet beat England stars Harry Vardon and Ted Ray in an 18-hole playoff the following day. The moment was immortalized in a 2015 book and film, “The Greatest Game Ever Played”, and while an upheaval of this magnitude may be unlikely, there are young upstarts like Sam Burns, Will Zalatoris and Davis Riley who could pull off a stunner at the US Open 2022. They will face a packed US Open 2022 field headlined by world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler, defending US Open champion Jon Rahm and four-time major winner Rory McIlroy.

After winning the RBC Canadian Open last week, McIlroy is the 10-1 favorite in Caesars Sportsbook’s latest 2022 US Open odds. Defending PGA Champion Justin Thomas is just behind at 11-1, followed by Scheffler (12-1) and Rahm (14-1). Burns (25-1) and Zalatoris (25-1) are among the top contenders for the 2022 US Open, while Riley is a 60-1 long shot. The date for the US Open 2022 is Thursday June 16 with the first round. Before making any US Open 2022 picks or PGA Tour predictions, you gotta see what proven golf insider Sal Johnson has to say.

The esteemed golf insider has been in the game for many years and knows what it takes to win on the PGA Tour. Prior to the PGA Championship, Johnson predicted that if Thomas nailed his putts, he could definitely win. Thomas had his best week of the season on the greens, earning over 1.5 shots and ranking second in the field. The result? He beat Will Zalatoris in the playoffs to win his second PGA Championship.

In his previous set of predictions for SportsLine, he won the Masters for the third time in four years. Johnson backed Scheffler, saying he was “in a race where he’s been tough to beat, and I see him continuing at Augusta National.” The 25-year-old picked up his fourth win of the season.

Now Johnson, the first “Inside the PGA Tour” producer and longtime ABC Sports golf producer who has worked with Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer, has released his very confident picks for the 2022 US Open. from the founder of, the best database of golf statistics in the world, will certainly surprise you. You can only see them on SportsLine.

Top US Open 2022 expert picks

A shocking choice from Johnson: he is losing Viktor Hovland, even though the Norwegian is one of the 10 best players in the world. He’s rated 22-1 at Caesars and has six World Cup wins at 24. He missed a cut this season and finished outside the top 50 once. But the latter came in his last event, the Memorial, and he hasn’t finished in the top 10 since March. He also failed to place in the top 10 in his first 10 majors. Hovland is strong off the tee, approach and putting, but was horrible around the green (202nd in strokes gained).

Meanwhile, Scheffler has the golf pundit’s attention after dominating all year but appearing to cool down since winning the Masters in April. He missed the cut at the PGA Championship, but rebounded by nearly winning the Charles Schwab. He lost in the playoffs to Burns and then tied for 18th last week in Toronto. The 25-year-old has four wins this season after earning his first on tour in Phoenix in February. He’s finished 15th or lower in four of his last five events, but he still has eight top 10 finishes, including two runners-up, to go along with his four wins in 18 events.

Johnson has also looked down on Jordan Spieth’s season, but knows that if he can straighten his putter, he can dominate again. The 28-year-old, a three-time major champion, is 22-1 at the 2022 US Open at Caesars and has four top-10 finishes this year. He picked up a win at RBC Heritage in April and was a two-time finalist. He didn’t fare as well at majors, missing the cup at the Masters and tying for 34th at the PGA. Spieth is 47th on the circuit in scoring average (70.455), largely because of his putt (153rd in strokes gained).

How to make golf picks at the 2022 US Open

Johnson is high on a huge long shot that enters the US Open over 50-1. Johnson calls this golfer “one of the most underrated players on the PGA Tour.” His iron game is among the best on the tour, and the expert knows that if this player walks around the greens, he could pull off a stunner.
