US Open betting: Public love ‘Lefty’, Rahm is money

No surprises here, but Phil Mickelson is the people’s choice in public betting for the US Open golf, which tees off Thursday at Torrey Pines.

‘Lefty’ rolled back the years last month to become the oldest man to win a Major at aged 50 when he defied odds of +30000 at the PGA Championship.

There are no fancy odds like that this time – Phil is +7000 with bet365 and PointsBet but no bigger.

PointsBet has shared its latest public figures and Mickelson leads the way when it comes to the sheer weight of bets placed. More people have bet him than anybody else.
