Head-to-Head Picks for the 2020 US Open
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
You may remember that phrase from last week’s matchup column, but a 3-0 performance that captured a whole bunch of “plus-money” has in me in the mood to keep the mojo going.
The selection matchup bets this week at Winged Foot is more than plentiful, and I’ve already got my eye on a trio of 2020 US Open head-to-head picks.
Check them out below.
Jordan Spieth vs. Brendon Todd
I typically don’t lay any juice in matchups, but this is an opportunity that’s too piquant to ignore. Let’s just say that seeing Brendon Todd at -112 versus Jordan Spieth had me looking like a perplexed Woody Harrelson.
Spieth’s confidence has completely waned as he continues to struggle keeping the ball in play. Meanwhile, Todd’s getting more and more self-assured and is among the game’s elite when it comes to finding fairways.
Brendon appears poised for a top-25 finish while Spieth hasn’t cracked the top 70 in four straight starts.
Need I say anymore?
Bryson DeChambeau vs. Daniel Berger
After tapering off dramatically during the three FedEx Cup Playoff events, Bryson DeChambeau is going to have his hands full trying to get back on track at Winged Foot. It’s not to say the Mad Scientist can’t find a rhythm, but why take a chance when we already know Daniel Berger is flourishing?
Daniel has been as consistent as anyone in the world over the last seven months, which is why it’s such a shame that Fred Ridley hasn’t figured out a way to make things right.
Daniel Berger up to 13th in the world rankings. I totally understand the decision by ANGC to cap the field in March. But while I'm sure they expected there to be some qualified players left out, I don't think anyone envisioned an omission as glaring as his is shaping up to be.— Will Gray (@WillGrayGC) August 24, 2020
The fact that Berger is lurking at even money is what makes this US Open head-to-head pick such a slam dunk.
Christiaan Bezuidenhout vs. Keegan Bradley
There’s no question that Christiaan Bezuidenhout has played better than Keegan Bradley as of late. However, making intelligent US Open head-to-head picks isn’t just as simple as looking at recent form.
It requires additional uncovering.
The 26-year-old South African is making his debut at the United States Open. He’s played in two prior majors, both resulting in missed cuts (2019 Open Championship, 2020 PGA Championship). As far as being a complete driver of the golf ball – not so much.

A tough setup with narrow fairways plays into Keegan’s favor, and the St. Johns product is no stranger to playing good golf in the Empire State. Look to jump on Bradley sooner rather than later – as he may not remain the underdog for long.
