Craig Edwards @EdwardsTips_ previews the side markets for on this weeks US Open at Pebble Beach

<div><h2><strong>U.S. Open</strong></h2><p><strong>June 13th-16<sup>th</sup></strong></p><p><strong>Pebble Beach </strong></p><h2><strong>Top Great Britain and Ireland</strong></h2><p>The 2010 winner of the US Open at Pebble Beach, Graeme McDowell is a good place to start in this market. Already a winner on the PGA Tour this year at the Corales Puntacana Championship. Last week at the Canadian Open he kept his solid form going with a top 10 finish and the thirty foot he made at the eighteenth to qualify for the Open Championship at his native Royal Portrush will have left him feeling rather buoyant this coming week.</p><p>Shane Lowry another Irish player proficient in the demands of links golf looks perfect this week given we know he has two previous top 10 finishes in US Open’s, surrendering the 54-hole lead in 2016 to Dustin Johnson.</p><p>Danny Willett the 2016 Masters Champion is starting to look like a contender again after a prolonged slump in form. Already a winner on the European Tour this season in the DP World Tour Championship he managed a top 10 finish in the Canadian Open last week. With a pedigree in links golf from the Open Championship and Dunhill Links golf the man from Sheffield looks primed to contend again at the highest level.</p><h2><strong>Top European</strong></h2><p>Denmark's Lucas Bjerregaard is not a new name to readers of my column as we have already backed him twice in this market at the current seasons two majors. Both times he has given readers a good run for their money with some place returns. The Dane is impressing many on the PGA Tour in recent weeks and his length well suited to major championships.</p><p>Another player to consider on the links of Pebble Beach is Marcus Kinhult who won the British Masters only three weeks ago at Hillside Golf links. This was not the first time the Swedish player had produced his best play at a links course in his career. As an amateur he won the prestigious Lytham Trophy at the famous links Royal Lytham &amp; St Anne’s by eight shots so we can expect him to be well suited this week.</p><h2><strong>Recommended Bets</strong></h2><p><a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="Golf Betting Odds"><em><strong>Marcus Kinhult - Top Continental European – each way @ 45/1 (45.00) Bet365 </strong></em></a></p><h2><strong>Top Rest of the World </strong></h2><p>Australian Aaron Baddeley is a player enjoying his most solid season on the PGA tour in a while and has a real liking for the links test of Pebble Beach course from the Pro Am. I am not sure the top of this market is as strong as normal this week so he could be a sporting each way punt.</p><p>South African Erik Van Rooyen produced a strong display at the PGA Championship making the top ten. He has featured prominently in major championships or links golf as last year’s Open Championship and Irish Open prove. His solid consistency around the globe recently makes him as easy selection in many side markets this week.</p><h2><strong>Recommended Bet</strong></h2><p><a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="Golf Betting Odds"><em><strong>Erik Van Rooyen - Top Rest of the World - each way @ 25/1 (26.00) Bet365</strong></em></a></p><h2><strong>Place markets</strong></h2><p>Potentially a good place to look for value in this weeks’ markets as I have a long list of Pebble Beach course specialists who are big in price.</p><p>Chesson Hadley is a player high on my list of players with an affinity for Pebble Beach. Not in the best of form all season but a return to his favourite venue could be the spark he needs to ignite his season.</p><p>Brendan Todd is a name my regular readers will be familiar with and has bits and pieces of Pebble Beach form. I am sure he will be excited this is the venue after he won his pre qualifying section with impressive rounds of 65 and 66. He is grinding his way back after a dreadful slump and there have been significant improvement in results with a top 20 finish at the Wells Fargo.</p><p>Roberto Castro is a player who regularly catches the eye over the years and played well in Canada last week. An inconsistent sort in general, he has form at the highest level when finding his mojo.</p><p>Canada's Nick Taylor the 2014 Sanderson Farms champion has been a very middle of the road but consistent professional in the years since. Last week at his national open he gave a significantly brighter performance and we know he can navigate Pebble Beach so may be worth a look in Top Canadian or top 20 markets.</p><p>Qualifier Alex Prugh is an unknown name to many readers I am sure however, last season on the Web tour he gained his PGA tour playing privileges with an impressive sequence of results. It has been a struggle since for thirty-five-year old from Washington, but he does have a special affinity with Pebble Beach with some solid performances in the pro-am to draw on.</p><p>Luke Guthrie is a similar “journeyman professional” who has pre-qualified and currently in a rich vein of form on the Web tour (three top 6 finishes in 4 events). He has some main tour experience of Pebble Beach and that looks positive with two top 35 finishes from his two visits. Could be interesting in three-ball or top 20 place markets.</p><p>Another name from under the radar and standout performances is Richard H Lee who like a few of the qualifiers above will be delighted the US Open venue is Pebble Beach. Barely able to get any starts on the PGA tour he did mange to Monday qualify for the Genesis Open and make the cut. When he was a regular on tour, he managed three top 15 finishes between 2012-2014. To be competitive over the weekend make be a big ask but any “To make the cut” markets would be interesting.</p><h2><strong>Recommended Bets </strong></h2><p><a href=";a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="Golf Betting Odds"><em><strong>Graeme McDowell - Top 20 @ 4/1 (4.00) Unibet </strong></em></a></p><p><a href=";a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="Golf Betting Odds"><em><strong>Brendan Todd - Top 20 @ 33/1 (34.00) William Hill </strong></em></a></p><p><a href=";a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="Golf Betting Odds"><em><strong>Roberto Castro - Top 20 @ 33/1 (34.00) Unibet </strong></em></a></p></div>
