The U.S. Open returns to a renovated Lake Course at Olympic Club in Northern California, a course that should play similarly to TPC Southwind in Memphis, host of last week’s St. Jude Classic. This is a long Par 70 with tiny greens, so precision will be key once again. Here’s a look at the best bets for the second major of the year…

Lee Westwood (12/1): Westwood has been in the hunt on some of the Tour’s biggest weeks, posting top-3’s in six of his past 10 majors. He ran away with the Nordea Masters in Sweden last week, and he leads the PGA Tour in Greens in Regulation (73.84%), a key at Olympic Club.

Dustin Johnson (25/1): Johnson won at Southwind last week, and Olympic looks like an awfully similar track. Injuries seem to no longer be an issue, as Johnson has gone top-10 in four of his six starts in 2012.

Luke Donald (12/1): Three weeks ago Donald defended his title at the BMW PGA Championship in England, and he’s been typically solid in the U.S. this year (top-6 finishes in four of seven PGA Tour starts).

Tiger Woods (6/1): Woods recaptured some of that old magic in his comeback win at the Memorial, but it’s too soon to proclaim that he’s back.

Jason Dufner (25/1): The FedEx Cup points leader rides momentum into San Francisco, as Dufner has three top-2’s and two wins in his past four starts. He’s top-10 on the Tour in Greens In Regulation (69.44%) and bogey avoidance (14.11%).

Despite the ads you might see for Draftkings, Oregon bettors are out of luck as Scoreboard is the official (and only) sportsbook licensed by the state, and they don't allow betting on any college games.  The good news is there are still options.
