We simulated the 2018 U.S. Open 10,000 times and came up with a very surprising leaderboard. SportsLine's prediction model, which was built by DFS pro Mike McClure, nailed the 2018 Masters, predicting the career-defining victory for Patrick Reed entering the weekend.
It also nailed the Masters and U.S. Open last year, calling wins for Sergio Garcia and Brooks Koepka entering the weekend. Then, it was all over Jordan Spieth at the 2017 British Open from the start and called his third major victory with three rounds to play.
One huge surprise the model is calling for at the U.S. Open this year: Tiger Woods, a three-time champion, makes a strong run but falls just short of winning the title. Another surprise: Jordan Spieth, a three-time major champion champion, doesn't sniff the Top 5. He's somebody to completely steer clear of at the 2018 U.S. Open.
Also, the model says four golfers with odds of 20-1 or longer will make a deep run at the U.S Open title, including a monster long shot. Anyone who bets on these underdogs could hit it BIG... Join SportsLine here to see who you can bank on to win the U.S. Open and see which long shots make a run at the title, plus see Tiger Woods' exact finishing position, all from the model that's nailed four of the last five majors heading into the weekend.
