Stricker, Toms and Cink our match bets made in heaven

William Hill's cracking US Open match bets are a great way to be involved for the whole tournament even if your selection misses the cut or is not in contention.

Big gaps between rivals that occurs after the first two days can be eradicated by the end of the final round.

With big scores a constant threat in the US Open especially on the seriously tough Bethpage Black course, a match bet is the perfect way to be gripped in to the action right up until the final ball is holed.

Steve Stricker to beat Zach Johnson at 8/11

Steve Sticker's US Open credentials have been well advertised with his ultra-consistent record and excellent form this year.

Stricker has finished in the top 16 on no fewer than six occasions including last time at Bethpage which shows he can handle this tough course.

With doubts about his ability to close out tournaments well this could be a great bet for those who think he will be on the premises but not in the places.

Zach Johnson meanwhile undoubtedly has the nerve to win a Major having already captures the Masters in 2007 but a record in the US Open of T48, Cut, Cut, T45, Cut does not do anything to suggest he will do any better this time around.

For those who do fancy Johnson, he is available at odds of 11/10.

David Toms to beat Brian Gay at 10/11

There is no doubt Brian Gay has had a superb year with a win in the Verizon Heritage and another victory just last week in the St Jude Classic demonstrates just how good a player he is becoming (Gay can also be backed at 10/11).

However in five attempts in the US Open he has missed the cut every time and has not played in it for the last four years.

While he is a vastly improved player now he is lacking the vital experience needed to tackle a Major like this and sustain the challenge for all four days.

Meanwhile David Toms has captured a Major - the PGA Championship back in 2001 so knows what is required at the business end of proceedings.

He had made the frame twice before having tied for fifth place in 2003 and 2007 and made the cut last time at Bethpage.

He finished second to Gay in the St Jude last week so could barely come in to this tournament in better form

Stewart Cink to beat Kenny Perry at even money

Ever since Kenny Perry blew his chance of winning The Masters his games seems to have taken a nosedive.

Since he missed out on the title he has failed to make the top 20 on all his subsequent starts and it would be a surprise now if Perry were to be competitive at Bethpage given his poor US Open record.

Stewart Cink meanwhile is yet to win this year and doesn't bring the greatest form in to this Major but he has a good enough record to suggest he will get the better of 5/6 chance Perry.

Three top 10 finishes including a third in 2001 and a share of 14 place last year is much better form than Perry can offer.

He did miss the cut at Bethpage last time but and a large portion of this bet is based on Perry faltering rather than Cink dominating but at the prices, even money looks like a decent bet.

Don't forget about William Hill's fantastic range of markets including Top GB and Ireland winner, Top Continental European player, Winning Nationality, Top 10 finish, Top 5 finish, Play-off to decide winner, 1st round leader, 2nd round leader, 3rd round leader, Top Rest of the World player and Top Scandinavian player to name but a few.
