US Open Each-Way Tips: Five to back in Betfair's 10 place winner market

Golfer Brandt Snedeker
Joe is backing Brandt Snedeker to enjoy another outing at Pebble Beach

The Betfair Sportsbook is once again paying down to 10th place on each-way bets at a Major in 2019 and our golf team will be backing the following quintet...

"Snedeker is an easy pick to make, an in-form golfer who regularly plays his best stuff on the west coast including a pair of Pebble Beach Pro-Am victories. While that is clearly not the high-level test we'll witness this week it's certainly relevant, and this king putter and nine-time PGA Tour winner surely has an excellent chance of going close in a Major that has rewarded him with a top 10 finish on five occasions."

Joe Dyer: Back Brandt Snedeker @ 45/1

EW Terms: 1/5 Odds | 10 Places

Dave Tindall: Back Gary Woodland @ 70/1

With 10 each-way places on offer, it makes sense to look a little further down the betting and one who looks capable of making an impression is Gary Woodland. The big hitter landed the each-way cash at the USPGA when tied for eighth and he's made the top 10 in two of his last three majors. Now a proven performer at this level, the next thing to ask is can he make a mark at Pebble? Admittedly, he has a patchy record but the hope comes from a top five in 2017 when shooting 65 at host course Pebble in the final round. That adds to an impressive CV in California which shows a second place in the 2015 WGC-Match Play and tied ninth at Torrey Pines earlier this year. In fact, Woodland has finished tied 26th or better in eight of his last nine starts in the Golden State and two of his three PGA Tour wins have come in Nevada and Arizona so he seems to like it out west.

Paul Krishnamurty: Back Tyrrell Hatton @ 125/1

With ten places available to each-way backers this week, there is plenty of value among the outsiders and the 25/1 about Tyrrell Hatton finishing top-ten, for example, is huge. Hatton has already shown he's not daunted by the big US events. He was sixth in last year's US Open and has twice made this top-ten target in the USPGA. He also looks to have the right skills-set for Pebble Beach. The four key indicators for me are course form, links form, greens in regulation and scrambling. While lacking in the former, Hatton is a links specialist - twice winning the Dunhill Links and being placed in an Open. He's playing well enough, finishing eighth on his penultimate start and ranking top-11 for GiR on his last three starts. With regards scrambling, he's 13th for strokes gained around the green on this year's PGA Tour.

Steve Rawlings: Back Paul Casey @ 40/1

Given he ran Phil Mickelson close at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am back in February, a year after finishing eighth in that event, I wonder what price Paul Casey would have been here if he was coming in on the back of his brilliant title defence at the Valspar Championship, or even his fourth placed finish at the Wells Fargo Championship at the start of last month? But after a tied 29th at the US PGA Championship and a withdrawal at the Charles Schwab Challenge, he comes in a long way under the radar. We can ignore that withdrawal though as it was down to flu and not injury and if he's back to full strength and fighting fit, he has to be given a chance on a track he's clearly beginning to thrive at. As a fabulous links exponent with exceptional all-round stats, a win under his belt this season, and some very strong Pebble form, Casey is a lively outsider that could very easily reward with at least another top-ten.

Joe Dyer: Back Brandt Snedeker @ 45/1

It's generally a good sign when there's little difference between the Exchange and Sportsbook prices and so Brandt Snedeker - 55.054/1 in the exchange winner market and 45/1 on the Sportsbook with 10 places paid - will be carrying my money this weekend. He's an easy pick to make, an in-form golfer who regularly plays his best stuff on the west coast including a pair of Pebble Beach Pro-Am victories. While that is clearly not the high-level test we'll witness this week it's certainly relevant, and this king putter and nine-time PGA Tour winner surely has an excellent chance of going close in a Major that has rewarded him with a top 10 finish on five occasions.

Mike Norman: Back Rickie Fowler @ 25/1

From as soon as he burst onto the scene Rickie Fowler has been touted as a future Major winner. It hasn't quite happened for the 30-year-old yet but you sense it would be an injustice if he were to go through his career without bagging a big one. Rickie goes into this week's US Open having made the last 12 cuts in Major championships, recording top four finishes in four of the last 10. He's also made the top 10 - the required finishing position for a Betfair pay-out this week - in three of his last six US Opens, and his form this season is fine too, winning the Phoenix Open earlier in the year, finishing runner-up at the Honda Classic and fourth at last months's Wells Fargo Championship. But Fowler has always been regarded as a future US Open or Open Championship winner because of his ability to play in difficult weather conditions and how quickly he took to links golf. He's won a Scottish Open, won the Abu Dhabi Championship in the desert, and finished second in the Open, so this week's Pebble Beach test really should be right up his street, and I'm not put off by the fact that he hasn't played the AT & T at this venue for a number of years.
