2023 U.S. Open Golf Tournament Betting Odds

The third major tournament of the PGA Tour calendar is upon us as the U.S. Open festivities take over Los Angeles Country Club in Los Angeles, California from June 15th to June 18th. With his current form in 2023, it’s no surprise that the outright betting markets have youngster Scottie Scheffler as the big-time favorite to win the tournament on most betting apps and betting sites.

Highlights

  • Scottie Scheffler has the shortest odds to win at +700
  • 2-time U.S. Open winner Brooks Koepka sits in second at +1,000
  • Only one back-to-back U.S. Open champ in the last 33 tournaments

2023 U.S. Open Golf Tournament - Outright Odds Table - June 15th to June 18th

The U.S. Open is played at a different course every year, and lately, it’s basically been the same thing with the tournament’s winner: there have been 19 different U.S. Open champs over the past 20 tournaments. There have also only been two back-to-back winners since 1951, so triumph in the U.S. Open has been shared around quite a bit. All odds provided by Sports Interaction.

Nationality Of Winner Betting Market

One of the great things about golf is how global it is, with golfers from all over the world competing every weekend. That allows bettors to make bets on markets such as the nationality of the winner. In the U.S. Open, there’s no two ways about it, the front running country/region is the one where the tournament’s being played.

Though the first 16 U.S. Opens were won by British men, 86 of the last 105 have been won by golfers hailing from America, including six of the last eight winners. With six of the top 10 golfers on the odds table coming from the U.S., it’s no surprise that the odds for an American to win this year’s U.S. Open have shortened from -143 odds a few days ago to -152 odds on the eve of the competition, which is still pretty good value.

Scottie Scheffler Outright Odds

There’s no ifs, ands, or buts about it, Scottie Scheffler is the hottest golfer in the world right now. He’s the world No. 1 and for good reason: he has finished in the top 12 in each of his last 15 appearances, including eight top five finishes and wins at the Phoenix Open and the Players.

Scheffler has also been especially good at majors recently, as the 26-year-old youngster counts seven top 10 finishes in his last nine majors. He won last year’s Masters, came second at last year’s U.S. Open, and came second a month ago at the PGA Championship. We don’t usually like to go with the shortest odds for these tournaments, but even at +700 Scheffler is looking pretty darn good.

Jon Rahm Outright Odds

If Scheffler has been white hot of late, Jon Rahm has been red hot right behind him. The Spaniard won the Masters earlier this year and took home a win at the 2021 U.S. Open as well, so he’s had prior success at this tournament if not this specific course.

His two most recent performances at the PGA Championship and the Memorial were forgettable, but before that he was on an absolute roll. In the 11 tournaments he finished prior to the PGA, Rahm racked up nine top eight finishes including seven top five performances and four wins. Rahm’s +1,000 odds are pretty nice considering the caliber of golfer he is and his 2023 results, but those last two weekends paired with the fact that the U.S. Open just doesn’t see many repeat champions these days makes it a dicey bet.

Patrick Cantlay Outright Odds

While Patrick Cantlay isn’t quite a household name yet, he’s still got the eighth shortest odds to win the U.S. Open at +1,800 odds, which are offering a lot of value if you look a little closer at Cantlay’s history. A lot of golf betting has to do with the marriage between course and golfer, and that’s where Cantlay has a leg up here.

Born and raised in Long Beach California and educated at UCLA, Cantlay has played at Los Angeles Country Club on numerous occasions and is one of a select few in this weekend’s tournament that can say they’ve played there competitively. His recent results are nothing to scoff at either, as he’s got seven top 10 finishes this year and has finished in the top 15 in each of his last four majors. With the home-course advantage and the massive +1,800 odds, Cantlay is the best pick here for the value he’s bringing.
