If you read my original 2018 US Open Betting Tips Post and watched my YouTube Video in association with ClubsToHire.com you'll have seen me allude to some crazy long odds value available in the market. With some bookmakers paying out up to 10 places, it's well worth exploring some of the longer odds players that have credible chances of finishing high on the final leaderboard but may have snuck under the radar.

2018 US Open Long Odds Betting Tips

Here's my five top Long Odds picks of odds around 100/1 or maybe even better.

Byeong Hun An 100/1

The bookies have Ben out at long odds because of three missed cuts from his four US Open starts but he's been learning his craft over the years and has emerged in 2018 as a global force who can now contend on the biggest stage.  Top-10's at the Honda and Heritage were matched with a T30 at The Players and then a T15 at Wentworth at the BMW PGA Championship on the European Tour where he won a couple of years back.  But it was perhaps his T2 on a tough golf course at The Memorial two weeks ago that made everyone sit up and take notice and I think those 100/1 odds look pretty  good now!

Brandt Snedeker 100/1

There's this belief that the modern US Open has become a slugfest designed only for the muscled up longer hitters but if you ask Mike Davis and the USGA they will tell you the opposite.  And I believe Shinnecock Hills, as long and tough as it plays, is a proper old school test that doesn't eliminate the shorter hitters.  And that's where Brandt Snedeker comes back into the reckoning.  We know he's fit again and in form after a great week at TPC Southwind and with four US Open Top-10's and six Top-15's since 2011 he's certainly a man that has the ability to engineer his ball around these tests.

Rafa Cabrera Bello 100/1

Another who has struggled in US Opens but has found consistent form on both sides of the Atlantic this year is Rafa Cabrera Bello.  From a T3 at the WGC Mexico, to a T17 at The Players, a T8 at the BMW PGA and solo fourth at the Italian Open the Spaniard has shown a world class level of ball-striking.  You have to think this US Open  is perfectly suited to his creativity; just needs one stellar week with the putter and he can contend.

Jason Dufner  125/1

If you can keep your head while all about you are losing theirs….you'll be Jason Dufner several times at the US Open. Tied 4th in 2012 and 2013 and T8 at Oakmont in 2016 and when he's in the mood possesses the game that simply bores courses into submission with his machine like precision.  But therein lies the very problem, judging his form.  Comes in off missed cuts at The Memorial and Fort Worth but fronted up with a T5 at The Players Championship.  If the "fifth" Major is a formguide for this week, don’t count the 2013 PGA Champion out.

Jimmy Walker 100/1

It's absolutely wonderful to see Jimmy Walker back producing some of his best golf this year after his battle with debilitating Lyme Disease.  A T20 at The Masters sparked a run of good finishes including a 4th in Texas, T2 at The Players, T6 at The Byron Nelson and T20 last time out in Fort Worth.  Best of T9 in the 2014 US Open but Jimmy Walker is also a former Major Champion and when in position knows how to win.
