Can Brooks Koepka or another LIV Tour golfer win?

If you’re confident in the odds of Brooks Koepka or another LIV Tour player winning the US Open, there’s a prop bet to jump on BetMGM.

A LIV Tour player who wins the tournament at Los Angeles Country Club is at +450. Two-time US Open winner Koepka is the heavy favorite on the LIV Tour at +1100 while reigning British Open winner Cam Smith is at +2800 and Bryson DeChambeau and Dustin Johnson are both at +4000.

A third US Open title for Koepka or a victory for a player who left the PGA Tour a year ago would be seen as another blow for a PGA Tour that is still struggling to explain its recent Public Investment deal. Fund of Saudi Arabia. The news that the PIF would become an investor in the PGA Tour shocked the sports world and left PGA Tour pros struggling to figure out the details of the deal on their own.

Koepka won the PGA Championship in May after finishing second to Jon Rahm at the Masters. LACC looks like a great opportunity for Koepka to get another major win as he looks like a much different golfer than he was a season ago when he moved to the LIV Tour. If you think he’ll be in the final group in Sunday’s final round, you can bet Koepka will be one of the last two golfers to land at +500.

Tournament favorite Scottie Scheffler is the favorite to be in the final group at +333 while Rahm is at +450 and Rory McIlroy is at +500 with Koepka.

If you think the winner will come from Sunday’s final group, those odds are -225. If you like the odds of a grouped ranking and a player leaving early to win the tournament, those odds are a nice +175.

Here are some other prop bets available ahead of Thursday’s first round. Because the tournament is on the West Coast, tee times start later for TV purposes (and so you have more time to place your bets). First-round coverage begins at 9:40 a.m. ET on NBC’s Peacock streaming service.

Scottie Scheffler, Jon Rahm and Rory McIlroy will all be selected (-200)

McIlroy’s struggle with his holds would have us thinking about that bet. It will be a shock if Rahm or Scheffler misses the cut.

There will be an albatross (+1200)

We are not sure to take this bet. While there are plenty of holes on the LACC North Course that can be considered birdie holes, the par-5s look daunting. Especially without hitting the fairway. The par-4 sixth hole could also produce an albatross, but it would also take a tee shot in a million.

A hole-in-one in the first round (+350)

The odds are the same for each of the first two spins while they increase to +750 for each of the last two spins. LACC has two extremely long par 3s.

Sam Burns will miss the cut (+150)

When Burns is on the tour, he is one of the best young golfers on the tour. But he has missed the cup in three of his last five tournaments and has only three top 10 finishes all season.
