2023 US Open Golf Odds – Early Favorites

June 10, 2023
2023 U.S. Open Odds

At Oak Hill, Scottie Scheffler came within one spot of winning a second major title, but fell short. The world’s No. 1-ranked golfer has wins at the Phoenix Open and The Players Championship and is now among the favorites to win the U.S. Open next weekend at Los Angeles Country Club. 

The U.S. Open, which will be held from June 15-18, is the third of golf’s four major tournaments each year. Sheffler tied for 10th at the Masters back in April and tied for second at the PGA Championship held just last month.

The early favorites to win this year’s U.S. Open should come as no surprise. What’s interesting are some solid contenders positioned for those bettors looking for the sleeper. Here’s a look at the early favorites. Odds

Scottie Sheffler +650

Rory McIlroy +800

Jon Rahm +800

Brooks Koepka +900

Sheffler the Early Favorite

Similar to Rahm this year, Scottie Scheffler had a run to remember in 2022 that led to a commanding victory at last year’s Masters. He has already defended his Phoenix Open title and he won the Players Championship. 

Sheffler has been ranked No. 1 in the world for 35 weeks. He also finished second at last year’s U.S. Open, finishing tied for second behind winner Matt Fitzpatrick. At +650, Sheffler is the clear favorite.

Rahm & McIlroy

Again, it’s not surprising that Rahm and McIlroy are next on the betting board. They are the No. 2 and No. 3-ranked golfers, respectively, in the world.

After a strong start to the 2022–23 season that culminated in a victory at this year’s Masters, the 2021 U.S. Open champion Rahm is back among the favorites at +800. He has four victories this season. In addition to the Masters, Rahm has won the Genesis Invitational, The American Express, and the Sentry Tournament of Champions. 

Despite a quiet major championship season the previous year, his best performance was a T12 at Brookline in this year’s U.S. Open. He lost the top spot once more, but he will be eager to regain it by winning a third major trophy. 

McIlroy hasn’t had a phenomenal season, but he is still among the best in the world. He has three major championships to his credit. One of those was the 2011 U.S. Open when McIlroy was just 21 years old. 

He missed the cut at this year’s Masters and finished tied for seventh at the PGA Championship. McIlroy is a guy you can’t leave out of the mix, which is why he’s also given +800 odds to win the U.S. Open this year.

LA Country Club

The renowned private golf club, Los Angeles Country Club, will host this year’s U.S. Open. It is one of the most prestigious clubs in the city and has a long history.

The layout of the course includes narrow fairways, strategically placed bunkers, and undulating greens. It is well-known for being difficult. It covers more than 300 acres and provides breathtaking scenery all around.  The design makes use of natural elements like dry riverbeds and large trees, which enhance the course’s beauty and make it more of a challenge.

The Sleepers

Patrick Cantlay (+2200) is the fourth-ranked golfer in the world. Like McIlroy, Cantlay isn’t having an outstanding season, but he’s been solid. He tied for 14th place at the Masters and ninth at the PGA Championship. The course will present Cantlay with some issues, but if he gets hot, look out.

The other sleeper candidate is Viktor Hovland. He’s ranked fifth in the world and just won the Memorial Tournament over the first weekend in June. He tied for seventh at the Masters and tied for second at the PGA Championship. Hovland is given +1600 odds to win the 2023 U.S. Open at
