US Open favorites

Here are US Open odds favorites for the 2023 golf tournament in LA.

Scottie Scheffler (+600): World No. 1 hasn’t finished worse than 12th since the CJ Cup in October. He’s currently putting together the best stretch of ball striking we have ever seen in the shot link era. Finished 10th at the Masters and 2nd at the PGA. T7 and 2nd in last two US Opens. 

Jon Rahm (+900): The 2021 US Open champion has started to show some volatility in his game that we didn’t see when he was dominating early in 2023. Failed to get much going at the PGA and struggled with the putter at Memorial, but he has the victory at the Masters to fall back on. 

Brooks Koepka (+1200): It appears that Koepka is back in his peak form in majors, as he won the PGA Championship after finishing T2 at the Masters. While he may not always dial it in at LIV tournaments, Koepka has won the U.S. Open twice along with a 2nd and T4 before finally falling back to 55th in a bad 2022. US Open odds show Koepka around +1200 to win outright at most sportsbooks.

Rory McIlroy (+1600): Rory really struggled in US Opens after winning it in 2011, but he’s gotten back on track in his last four starts with finishes of 9th, 8th, 7th and 5th. That’s a promising trend, but you can’t ignore that McIlroy isn’t playing with his best ball striking as of late. The putter caught fire in Canada though, making him close to a potential breakout. 

Patrick Cantlay (+1800): Cantlay will be playing a home game in the US Open in Los Angeles, and he seems to slowly be finding his form in major championships with a 14th at the Masters and a T9 at the PGA. After struggling in U.S. Opens to start his career, he’s logged a T15 and 14th in his last pair of starts. 

Xander Schauffele (+2000): Playing solid but unspectacular golf in 2023, but the ball striking seems to be trending up and getting to a place that could lead to victory. Surely is ready to get back in the mix at a major. One of the most solid U.S. Open histories with six finishes of 14th or better to start his career. 

Viktor Hovland (+2200): Hovland is coming in as one of the hottest players in the world with a narrow miss at the PGA and then a win at Memorial. His U.S. Open career started well with a T12 and T13 but has withdrawn and missed a cut in his last two. 

Matt Fitzpatrick (+2500): The defending champion will be coming in feeling pretty well after his 2023 got off to a poor start. With the injuries settled and his ball striking looking good again, Fitzpatrick has a lovely game to grind it out on tough U.S. Open setups.

Jordan Spieth (+2500): Might be coming in quietly, but Spieth has been putting together some eye-popping ball striking numbers as of late, which recently resulted in a T5 at Memorial. Also finished T4 at the Masters with great all-around numbers. The 2015 U.S. Open champion has failed to get anything going at this tournament since. Spieth has +2500 U.S. Open odds to win outright.

Collin Morikawa (+2500): Already has two legs of the Career Grand Slam, and he’s threatened for a third at the U.S. Open in his last two starts with a 4th and 5th. But outside of that, things look bleak for Morikawa as his form has been rough overall. Finally was playing well at Memorial before having to withdraw with an illness. 

Tony Finau (+2500): Finau has played some of his worst golf in more than a year since grabbing a win at the Mexico Open. The putter has gone ice cold in that stretch, which has been the issue for much of this year. He’s missed two cuts at the U.S. Open since finishing T8 in 2020. 

Max Homa (+2500): It will be a big week for Homa as he’ll play a hometown major at Los Angeles Country Club. This has been a tournament he’s had zero success at with just one made cut in four tries … a T47 last year. His game overall since winning the Farmers has been solid, but he’s still failed to get anything going at a major. 

Cameron Smith (+2500): The Open Champion and LIV departee has been quietly putting together a nice string of results since a somewhat disappointing start at the Masters. He’s logged four consecutive Top 10s at LIV events and finished T9 at the PGA. 

Tyrrell Hatton (+2800): Hatton has been one of the most consistent players on the PGA TOUR in 2023 and is once again in contention at the Canadian Open. He’s another player who has been somewhat disappointing in majors despite his success elsewhere. Rough history at the U.S. Open outside of a T6 in 2018. 

Justin Thomas (+3300): It’s pretty wild to see Justin Thomas this far down, but it’s been a very forgettable stretch of golf for him since winning the PGA Championship last year. It’s been worse as of late, as he was among the worst finishers who made the cut at the PGA and then missed the cut at Memorial. He also missed the cut in Augusta. 

Dustin Johnson (+3300): Johnson is also surprising to see this low, though it has also been a forgettable year for the most part. Outside of a win at Tulsa before the PGA, he hasn’t dominated LIV like we saw in 2022. Johnson was okay early at the Masters and the PGA, but the 2016 U.S. Open winner dropped to T48 and T55 on the weekend in those majors. 

Cameron Young (+4000): Young was in great form earlier this year with a 2nd at the Match Play and T7 at the Masters, but it’s been downhill since with no finish better than a T51. The putter has been severely lacking form for much of 2023. He’s missed the cut in all three U.S. Open starts. 

Jason Day (+4000): I’m hopeful that Day will be rejuvenated for the U.S. Open, as he struggled in both the PGA and Memorial after winning the Bryon Nelson. He was clear that his body was struggling to recover, so it will be a wait-and-see game to see how he feels in Los Angeles. Hasn’t contended at the U.S. Open as of late after regularly showing in the Top 10 there early in his career. 

Hideki Matsuyama (+5000): Hideki has been solid as of late without producing high-end results that we’d expect from him. The ball striking looks good, and it is positive that he had a nice putting week in a T16 at Memorial in his last time out. Finished 4th last year in the U.S. Open. 

Bryson DeChambeau (+5000): Bryson was nearly out of many people’s mind heading into the PGA as he had failed to contend even on the LIV Golf tour. But he led at the PGA and eventually finished T4 in a promising week. The 2020 U.S. Open winner has to always be respected in these conditions. 

Sungjae Im (+6600): He was one of the most consistent players on TOUR early in the year, but his form has fallen off as of late. His win in Korea was followed by poor missed cuts at the PGA and Colonial before finishing T41 at Memorial. Failed to get much going in four starts at the U.S. Open. 

Justin Rose (+6600): The 2013 U.S. Open winner has been in lovely form in 2023 with a win at Pebble Beach and a handful of great results since. The iron game looks to be in peak condition as of late, and his putter is always liable to go scorching hot at the right time. 

Tommy Fleetwood (+6600): Finally ended a great stretch of golf with a missed cut at Colonial but had the game looking solid again in Canada. Showed potential at the U.S. Open back in 2017 and 2018 with a 4th and 2nd in consecutive years. 

Shane Lowry (+6600): The Irishman is putting together some lovely ball striking performances throughout 2023, but he’s really struggled to find anything with the putter. That’s what has stopped him from really contending for a win. Finished 2nd in the 2016 U.S. Open at Oakmont but hasn’t done much since. 

Sam Burns (+8000): Burns has been playing well as of late, but he’s another young player who has failed to convert TOUR success into success at major championships. He’s also generally struggled at tough venues. Best finish at a U.S. Open was a 27th last year. 

Rickie Fowler (+8000): It’s great to see Fowler back in majors as this will be his first U.S. Open since 2020. He has a pair of top-five finishes in the U.S. Open with the last being a T5 in 2017. Overall form in 2023 has been lovely, and his last two starts were a T6 at Colonial and T9 at Memorial. 

Wyndham Clark (+8000): It’s been a breakthrough year for Clark on the PGA TOUR after winning Wells Fargo and already adding numerous top finishes with it. His last time out was a solid T12 at Memorial as he continues to stripe the irons. Missed the cut in both U.S. Open starts. 

Corey Conners (+8000): Has to be feeling good coming in with success at the Canadian Open after leading deep into the weekend at the PGA before falling to a T12 on Sunday. Game is in great shape overall, and he’s putting fairly well too. But he’s missed the cut in all four U.S. Open tries. 

Adam Scott (+8000): This has never been Scott’s best major, as he’s really struggled to get in contention at U.S. Opens throughout his career. But his form overall is really trending, as he’s logged Top 10s in three of his last four starts. The only other finish was a T29 at the PGA, where he was in contention before a rough weekend. 

Mito Pereira (+8000): Pereira has been solid on the LIV Golf tour as of late, and he logged a solid T18 at the PGA Championship. Showed us in 2022 he can contend on the biggest stage when he finished a heartbreaking 3rd. He’s missed the cut in both U.S. Open starts.

Course Preview: Los Angeles Country Club

  • Course: Los Angeles Country Club
  • Location: Los Angeles, California
  • Date: June 15-18, 2023
  • How to watch: NBC (Sat-Sun), NBCports.com, Peacock, USA, NBC Sports Mobile App, USGA Streaming App through USOpen.com, the US Open app for mobile and the USGA apps for TV boxes.

Los Angeles Country Club is finally going to get its moment in the spotlight in 2023. As one of the oldest established clubs in the United States, Los Angeles Country Club has never hosted a major championship until the USGA finally gave it a chance. Now we’ll be headed to the west coast for a U.S. Open for the third time in five years. The club was built in 1897, but it wasn’t firmly set in place on its current piece of land until George C. Thomas and William P. Bell redesigned it in 1927. While no majors have taken place at L.A.C.C., the club did host five Los Angeles Opens – now the Genesis Invitational at Riviera – along with prestigious amateur tournaments. The Walker Cup was played there in 2017 and is our best look at what to expect from the U.S. Open. 

We don’t get to see proper California golf enough. The PGA Tour tournaments hosted there take place in January and February, which presents softer and slower conditions overall. While the U.S. Open has gone to Pebble Beach and Torrey Pines plenty in June, those are both coastal courses that don’t get as firm. Los Angeles Country Club is in the hills of Southern California, which means we should expect a very firm and fast golf course in June considering how little rain the area can get. That’s exactly how the course played in September 2017 for the Walker Cup. 

Considering George Thomas designed the course and Gil Hanse recently restored it for the upcoming U.S. Open, we can already assume some things about the mostly unknown Los Angeles Country Club. Thomas also designed nearby Riviera Country Club, the host of the Genesis Invitational. While the two are certainly not too similar, we do see some of the elements carry over. The main one is that the greens are absolutely diabolical in most places and feature a ton of shaved run-off areas with deep and penalizing bunkers surrounding them. Hanse came in and restored those bunkers to their natural intentions and readied the course to challenge the best players in the world. Hanse has done restorations for other old major championship venues recently, including Southern Hills, Winged Foot and many more. 

When watching the 2017 Walker Cup back, it seems that the course is going to feature plenty of room off the tee before really challenging players with their approach shots. Misses on second shots will cause a player to face extremely challenging up-and-downs. Since the course isn’t overly long at 7,400 yards and should play firm, we should expect distance to take a backseat once again to shot making and short game like we saw in 2022 at Brookline with Matt Fitzpatrick’s victory. That hasn’t been the norm at recent U.S. Opens that were bomb and gauge, so it should be exciting to see another unique test for America’s Championship.

US Open odds: How to bet the US Open

The main betting draw to any golf tournament are the odds to win outright. For majors such as the U.S. Open, these are often released nearly a full year in advance in the form of futures bets. U.S. Open odds have been available for the months, dating back to the day after the finish of last year’s tournament at Winged Foot.

Initial U.S. Open odds show the previous year’s leaderboard, the OWGR at the time of the odds release, and public favorites. Tiger will never have betting odds reflecting his true likelihood of winning due to the sheer number of wagers that’ll be placed on him either way. Outright odds for a standard field of 156 golfers can range from as low as +500 for a favorite to long shots as high as +100000. These odds would return profits of $50 and $10,000, respectively, on $10 bets.

Odds will be routinely updated and altered through the year to reflect golfer performance, injuries, changes in the OWGR, and public betting action. The more wagers placed on any one golfer, the lower their odds will drop as the books hedge against large payouts.

Much closer to the beginning of the tournament, many more betting options will become available. These can include Top-5, Top-10, and Top-20 placing bets which feature lower odds than the odds to win, but they provide a safety net for a top finish and allow bettors to cash multiple tickets. 18-hole, 36-hole, and 54-hole leader bets can see higher odds for the tournament favorites than their outright odds.

Prop bets pool golfers together based on shared traits such as world ranking, previous tournament wins, and nationality. The odds in these pools are heavily influenced by the caliber of the golfers included and their individual likelihoods of winning the tournament.

Matchup bets pit golfers either head-to-head or in groups of three for each round or the tournament as a whole. These typically carry the lowest odds (-200 to +200) of the bet types mentioned here, but they can be the most predictable and are the best way to hedge against other losses and guarantee at least a modest return on your investment.

Straight Forecast bets are best suited to standard tournaments which feature two or three top golfers against an otherwise weaker field. These require bettors to correctly predict the first- and second-place finishers in order as a parlay to boost their individual odds to win outright.

Each-Way betting is popular when betting long shots. These bets consist of two separate wagers with one for the outright win and a second for a finish within a specified range of top-3 or top-5.

US Open odds: betting strategy

As with anything, research goes a long way to setting yourself up for success, and there are many tools available for golf bettors. The three main areas to look at are always Course History, Current Form, and Key Stats. Course History can be difficult for the U.S. Open – as well as the Open Championship and PGA Championship – as the event changes venues each year. But conditions are often similar across all U.S. Open venues. Courses are long and golfers will need to either be able to avoid trouble or quickly recover, and putting is essential.

Current Form looks at how well a golfer has been playing coming into an event. This can be dangerous as runs of success or struggles can begin and end without any notice. Each course will have a set of Key Stats best associated with success there. Be sure to look into which shot type a course favors and what type of grass is on the greens.

Be sure to closely monitor the futures U.S. Open odds throughout the months and weeks leading up to an event. Take screenshots of the opening odds and always compare against those in order to target favorites who may see their numbers temporarily rise due to a run of poor results or a lack of betting action. Conversely, don’t bet an opening long shot if their odds have fallen too far due to a stretch of strong results. Majors are tough to win, and not everyone can do it. Don’t fall for diminished value.

While the outright odds carry the hopes of the biggest pay days, the safe money is made on the props, matchups and placing bets. Be sure to devote the largest portion of your bankroll here. It’s better to cash multiple tickets at lower odds than bank on a long-shot outright bet only to watch your hopes fade away on the back 9 on Sunday.

Biggest betting long shots in US Open history

Martin Kaymer (2014) +10000

After taking down The Players Championship five weeks earlier, Kaymer demolished the 2014 U.S. Open field at Pinehurst. It was his second major championship win, but he doesn’t have a victory anywhere in the world since.

Webb Simpson (2012) +5000

Simpson is coming off arguably the most successful year of his career to creep inside the top 10 of the world rankings. He had two professional wins to his name before beating Graeme McDowell and Michael Thompson by one stroke at Olympic Club in 2012.

Graeme McDowell (2010) +6600

McDowell ranked 36th in the world at the time of his lone major victory at Pebble Beach Golf Links. He survived a wave of Sunday collapses which claimed Dustin Johnson and Tiger Woods to beat Gregory Havret by one stroke.

Lucas Glover (2009) +15000

Glover has just one professional win since beating Phil Mickelson, David Duval and Ricky Barnes by two strokes at Bethpage Black Course in 2009. He ranked 72nd in the world at the time.

Angel Cabrera (2007) +10000

Cabrera seems to be much better remembered for his 2009 Masters win than for his breakthrough one stroke victory over Tiger Woods and Jim Furyk at Oakmont Country Club. Cabrera rarely played in the United States outside of majors but ranked 39th in the world before his win vaulted him to 17th.

Geoff Ogilvy (2006) +8000

Ogilvy ranked 17th in the world and had two wins under his belt at the time of his first major victory, including the Accenture Match Play earlier in 2006. He beat Mickelson, Furyk and Colin Montgomerie by one stroke at Winged Foot.

Michael Campbell (2005) Not listed, part of FIELD at +600

Campbell had 10 professional wins prior to his two-stroke victory over Woods at Pinehurst but ranked just 80th in the world. He’d go on to win the HSBC World Match Play Championship later in 2005, but hasn’t won since.

Francis Ouimet (1913)

Just 20 years old and playing as an amateur, Ouimet outplayed accomplished British golfers Harry Vardon and Ted Ray to become the second American to win the U.S. Open. Ouimet would go on to win the US Amateur in 1914 and 1931.
