Corey Conners US Open Odds: Can Canadian Golfer Find Magic At Pinehurst?

By Jim Tomlin
Fact Checked by Nate Hamilton

The world’s top golfers will aim for major glory at this week’s U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2 in Pinehurst, North Carolina. But Canadian golfer Corey Conners and his backers at Ontario betting sites have a simpler goal to start: Make the cut.

Conners, a two-time winner on the PGA Tour, has reason to feel confident about his game. He is No. 46 in the World Rankings, has made the cut in all 16 PGA Tour events he has played in 2024 and finished sixth at the RBC Canadian Open just two weeks ago.

But his odds are very long this week and his history at the U.S. Open must be a major reason. First, the odds:

As you can see, Conners is a longshot at Ontario sports betting apps. The best value on a wager for Conners to win the U.S. Open, at least with the five major operators that we surveyed on Tuesday, is at FanDuel and Caesars, each with +9000 odds.

Conners has compiled five consecutive top-30 finishes, including a tie for 26th last month at the year’s second major, the PGA Championship.

The native of Listowel, Ontario, is doing well for those looking at PGA Tour statistics: He is No. 29 in scoring average (70.578 strokes per round), third in greens in regulation percentage (71%), and second in Strokes Gained: Approach the Green.

So why does history tell us to be wary of placing an Ontario moneyline bet on Conners this week? Here is why:

Corey Conners US Open Record

YearFinishing Place
2017Missed Cut
2020Missed Cut
2021Missed Cut
2022Missed Cut
2023Missed Cut

That’s right, Conners has never made a U.S. Open cut in five tries.

For all his success at other events – particularly the Valero Open, which he has earned both of his PGA Tour victories – the U.S. Open has bedeviled the 32-year-old Canadian. Twice he has missed the cut at the U.S. Open by one stroke, in 2020 at Winged Foot in New York and in 2022 at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts.

So perhaps a prop bet on Conners at Pinehurst is a better idea. For instance, NorthStar Bets Ontario Sportsbook has given him -275 odds to make the cut and +188 odds to miss. There are four other players with the same -275 odds to make the cut at NorthStar Bets: Russell Henley (No. 17 in the World Golf Rankings), Sam Burns (No. 27), Tony Finau (No. 28) and Sungjae Im (No. 30).

There are only 12 golfers with better odds to make the cut. Do you ride with Conners given his current form, or bet against him because of his history at the U.S. Open? There’s still time to decide.

At the top of the odds board, Masters champion Scottie Scheffler is the heavy favorite with +333 odds at BetMGM Ontario Sportsbook to win the 2024 U.S. Open.
