Here are some fun 2014 US Open prop bets worth your consideration
Who will make the cut? Who will finish higher? Who will, gulp, win?
What's a good sporting even if you can throw some good, hard-earned scratch on top of it? This year's US Open has a number of ways you can light your money on fire. Here are a few of my favorites.

Highest finisher (Group D)
Jason Day: +300
Luke Donald: +330
Webb Simpson: +300
Dustin Johnson: +400
Hideki Matsuyama: +400
Give me Matsuyama out of here all day. Day is still recovering from an injury and Matsuyama was top 10 last year at Merion and is coming off a win at Memorial. At +400 you can have the rest of those guys and I'll take the youngster.
Harris English in the top 10
That's some really good value.
Golfers vs. Field
Rory McIlroy, Adam Scott, Bubba Watson, and Phil Mickelson: +275
The field: -400
Go with the field, I think. That +275 number is enticing but I don' tthink Scott or Watson is going to win so you're staking everything on Rory and Phil. Sounds dicey.
Top Irish player
Rory McIlroy: -275
Graeme McDowell: +300
Shane Lowry: +800
Darren Clarke: +3300
Give me McDowell at +300! He missed the cut last year but was T2 the year before and of course won it in 2010. I think McIlroy will beat him but
Top Spanish player
Sergio Garcia: -200
Miguel Angel Jimenez: +350
Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano: +650
Pablo Larrazabal: +800
I think this will be Sergio more than I think the top Irish golfer will be Rory but Jimenez is at least enticing at +350.
