2024 U.S. Open Odds, Betting Trends: Everything You Need To Know

U.S. Open odds are taking on a Tiger Woods-in-his-prime look, with the third men's golf major of the year teeing off Thursday. Scottie Scheffler is a tidy +325 favorite, solidly ahead of the rest of the field at Pinehurst.

It's hard to argue against such a short Scheffler number in odds to win the U.S. Open. He already has five wins this year, including at the Masters and The Players Championship.

UPDATE 7:30 P.M. ET TUESDAY: Scheffler enters the U.S. Open coming off yet another win. In last week's Memorial, he built up enough of a lead to overcome a final-round 2-over 74. Scheffler finished with an 8-under 280 total, one shot ahead of Collin Morikawa.

In 13 starts this year, Scheffler has 12 top-10 finishes, including those aforementioned five victories, plus two runner-up efforts.

Back in December, before Scheffler's torrid run, The SuperBook opened him at +800 in the US Open odds market. Prior to the Masters, Scheffler was +600 to win the U.S. Open, and since winning at Augusta, he's been no longer than +450.

Two days ahead of Round 1, Scheffler is +325, while no one else is shorter than +1000.

"He's a pretty good golfer," SuperBook risk supervisor Chase Michaelson understatedly said. "We've taken plenty of tickets on Scheffler, but the numbers have to be overwhelming in order to have liability on a golfer with such short odds. As of now, we win on him in Nevada."

The SuperBook also has a Yes/No proposition on whether Scheffler wins. As with his tourney futures price, Yes is +325, while no is -425. But that prop bet isn't seeing much activity.

"We put up the 'No' for guys who are at really short odds. But it's not typically that popular, unless it really differs from the market," Michaelson said.

Xander the Great

UPDATE 7:30 P.M. ET TUESDAY: In last month's PGA Championship, Xander Schauffele finally shed his label of being unable to win a major. Schauffele engaged in a riveting Round 4 battle with Bryson DeChambeau and Viktor Hovland.

Schauffele shot 65 in the final round for a 21-under 263 total and a one-shot win over DeChambeau. Bettors are paying attention to that win, and the fact that he has 10 top-10 finishes in 14 events this season.

"We certainly have plenty of Xander tickets," Michaelson said of the +1000 second choice, who opened +2000. "He's a popular golfer in general, and shaking the label of 'can't win the big one' will make him interesting to people this week."

Following Scheffler and Schauffele on The SuperBook's U.S. Open futures odds board are:

  • Rory McIlroy (+1200; opened +1000)
  • Morikawa (+1600; opened +2500)
  • Brooks Koepka (+2000; opened +1600)
  • DeChambeau (+2000, opened +3000)
  • Ludvig Aberg (+2000; opened +2500)
  • Hovland (+2000; opened +2500)

"Of those guys, DeChambeau and Morikawa have the most tickets, which I think tallies with how competitive they've been in majors this season. Right now, we are a small loser on DeChambeau and a winner on everyone else," Michaelson said.

Medium/Long Shots and More

UPDATE 7:30 P.M. ET TUESDAY: Michaelson pointed to a couple players drawing interest in the next tier on the U.S. Open odds board.

"We took some significant money on Max Homa at 35/1. But he hasn't been playing well, so we're up to 50/1. We've also taken some money on Cam Smith at as high as 50/1. He is currently 40/1," Michaelson said.

And of course, some bettors are taking fliers on longer shots, hoping those golfers will play their way into contention at Pinehurst.

"Some long shots getting money include: Eric Cole, who opened 100/1 and is now 200-1; Lucas Glover, who opened 150/1 and is now 200/1, and of course, Tiger Woods," Michaelson said. "Tiger opened 150/1, but he's really struggled to physically make it through the major tournaments he's played. So he's now 500/1."

As for golfers with much more legitimate chances to win this weekend, Michaelson noted the pluses and minuses for The SuperBook.

"In terms of big-name guys, our best results include McIlroy, Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas and Hideki Matsuyama," he said. "Our worst results for players expected to be on the leaderboard include Aberg, Homa and Patrick Cantlay."

As noted above, McIlroy is the +1200 third choice in odds to win the U.S. Open. Spieth is +8000, Thomas +5000 and Matsuyama +4000. Also as noted above, Aberg is +2000 and Homa +5000. Cantlay is just behind those two at +6000.

Tiger, Phil and Other Notable Markets

UPDATE 7:30 P.M. ET TUESDAY: Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson will always draw fans to the betting counter. And these days, detractors will fade the longtime golf greats, who are far from their prime.

As Michaelson noted above, Woods is a distant 500/1, miles down the U.S. Open odds board. But per usual, he's a liability, as is Mickelson at 300/1.

"We do have Phil liability, but not as much," Michaelson said. "We've seen some action on Tiger to make the cut, and plenty of two-way action on the matchup between Tiger and Phil."

Mickelson is -150 to Woods' +130 in that matchup. On making the cut, Tiger is at No -300/Yes +240, while Lefty is No -275/Yes +225.

Another popular prop is winning score, which The SuperBook currently has at 274.5 (Over -120). That's 5.5 under par over four days on the tough par-70 track at Pinehurst.

"Winning score is a fun one, because of how difficult previous Pinehurst U.S. Opens have been," Michaelson said. "The PGA Championship was so easy for these top guys, with Xander winning at 21 under. But a traditional U.S. Open at Pinehurst should be much more difficult."
