The 116th US Open is set to get underway at the Oakmont Country Club in Plum, Pennsylvania on Thursday, June 16, and that means deciding where your money should go when wagering on this great event. With 156 players set to tee off this weekend, choosing a single winner is never an easy thing to do. The fact of the matter is that all of these guys are good, and any one of them could put together a string of rounds that is good enough to win. Let’s not forget that the last time the Open was played at this course, way back in 2007, it was a score of +5 that was good enough to win. This is a brutal course that is totally unforgiving, and it is likely to be the player who avoids trouble the most often who gets the win. The current golf betting odds show 3 clear favorites in Jason Day, Jordan Spieth, and Rory McIlroy, but are those the guys to put your money on. Let’s take a look at how you can bet on the 2016 US Open at MyBookie.ag.
Taking A Sneak Peak on How to Bet on the 2016 US Open Lines

Pick a winner before the tournament begins
If you like to take a real shot when wagering on the PGA tour, you will probably want to make your pick before the first ball is placed on the tee. There are a lot of regular PGA bettors who play the same player at every tournament, regardless of the odds, while others will look at the form of each player heading into the tournament. There really is no right or wrong way to select the eventual winner, and by wagering now, you are guaranteeing that you are going to get a great price.
Pick the first round leader
There are sure to be plenty of you who sit back and wait to see how the course plays before making a move, but that means missing out on the chance to win some money on day 1. If you want to have a little fun on Thursday, why not take advantage of the betting option on offer at MyBookie.ag, where they are offering the chance to bet on the first round leader. If you are going to go this route, I would suggest taking a look at the weather forecast for Thursday. It may well be that conditions will worsen as the day progresses, which will put things in the favor of the players teeing off early. This is a good chance to use a little bit of strategy.
Make your pick after the cut
As mentioned earlier, choosing one player out of 156 is tough, but the odds are a little more in your favor after half of those guys are eliminated on Friday afternoon. Waiting to wager until after the cut will see the betting odds on each player reduced, but it also improves you chances of picking the winner. Personally, I would take someone before the tournament begins, and then look at adjusting after the cut of said player is struggling or misses the cut. For the record, I will be going with Jordan Spieth all the way. This guy just seems built for the majors.
