2022 U.S. Open odds, picks, field: Tiger Woods predictions from proven model that nailed Masters finish


The 2022 U.S. Open is set to get underway on Thursday, June 16, and a number of players will enter the third major of the year confident they can win. Scottie Scheffler, the No.1 ranked player in the world, secured his first major championship win at the Masters in April, his fourth victory this season. Scheffler has also finished inside the top-10 eight times this season, and he recorded a T-7 finish at the U.S. Open in 2021.

Should Scheffler be included in your 2022 U.S. Open picks? Or should you back a long shot like Tiger Woods, a 15-time major champion? The latest 2022 U.S. Open odds from Caesars Sportsbook list Scheffler as the 11-1 favorite, while Woods is a 50-1 long shot on the PGA odds board. Before locking in your 2022 U.S. Open picks, be sure to see the golf predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

SportsLine’s proprietary model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been red-hot since the PGA Tour resumed in June of 2020. In fact, it’s up over $9,500 on its best bets since that point, nailing tournament after tournament.

McClure’s model included Justin Thomas in its best bets to win the 2022 PGA Championship. That bet hit at +1600, and for the entire tournament, McClure’s best bets returned almost $800. At the 2022 Masters, McClure’s model was all over Scottie Scheffler’s first career major championship victory heading into the weekend.

In addition, McClure’s best bets included Collin Morikawa winning outright at the 2021 Open Championship, even though he was a massive 40-1 long shot. The model was also all over Jon Rahm’s (10-1) first career major championship victory at the 2021 U.S. Open. Rahm was two strokes off the lead heading into the weekend, but the model still projected him as the winner.

This same model has also nailed a whopping eight majors entering the weekend. Anyone who has followed it has seen massive returns.

Now that the 2022 U.S. Open is approaching, SportsLine simulated the tournament 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected leaderboard.

Model’s top 2022 U.S. Open predictions

One huge shocker the model is calling for at the U.S. Open 2022: Collin Morikawa, a two-time major champion and one of the top favorites, stumbles at The Country Club and barely cracks the top 10. Morikawa has had tremendous success in golf’s biggest tournaments, finishing T-8 or better in four of his last five starts at a major championship.

However, Morikawa has struggled mightily in recent weeks, finishing T-26 or worse in five consecutive starts. Morikawa’s recent struggles can be directly attributed to his putter. In fact, Morikawa currently ranks 124th in strokes gained: putting (-.060), 162nd in total putting (281.2) and 111th in one-putt percentage (40.14), which doesn’t bode well for his chances to finish on top of the U.S. Open leaderboard. He’s not a strong pick to win it all and there are far better values in the U.S. Open 2022 field.

The model has also revealed where Tiger Woods will finish in the 2022 U.S. Open. Woods put on a valiant effort at Augusta National, making the cut and finishing 47th just 14 months after suffering a serious leg injury during a single car crash.

He also made the cut at the PGA Championship before withdrawing after shooting a nine-over par 79 in the third round at Southern Hills. Woods has won 82 events on the PGA Tour in his career, which is tied with Sam Snead for the most ever. He’s finished on top of the leaderboard three times at the U.S. Open, and the model just locked in its Tiger Woods U.S. Open picks here.

How to make 2022 U.S. Open picks

The model is targeting four golfers with odds of 18-1 or longer who will make surprising runs. Anyone who backs these long shots could hit it big.You can only see the model’s 2022 U.S. Open picks here.
