The cut line at golf majors always draws plenty of attention from bettors and the U.S. Open is no exception. 

US Open projected cut

The cut line for the 2023 U.S. Open Championship closed at +2 after threatening to get to +3 at a couple of different points Friday. Conditions were benign during Thursday's opening round, and the best golfers on the planet took advantage in the lowest scoring U.S. Open first round in event history. With slightly breezier wind conditions Friday, the USGA adjusted their strategy with more difficult pin positions at the LACC.

The top 60 golfers (and ties) survived to play the weekend, with 66 competitors at +2 or better. Some notable names who missed the cut include Phil Mickelson (+3), Jordan Spieth (+3), Max Homa (+4), Jason Day (+9), and Justin Thomas (+14).

Prior to the 2023 event, most sportsbooks set the cut line Over/Under at 143.5 (+3.5)

Betting on the cut line

Betting on the cut line is a very U.S. Open prop. Sportsbooks with U.S. Open odds set a projected cut line score heading into the event and you can bet on whether the final cut line will be Over or Under that projected score. 

For example, the cut line for the 2020 U.S. Open was 146 (+6). Oddsmakers posted an Over/Under projected cut line of 145.5, which means if you thought the cut line would be 145 or lower you would bet the Under and if you thought it would be 146 or higher then you would bet the Over.
