US Open 2022 golf odds: Bettors back Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas, Scottie Scheffler

Rory McIlroy (+1000), Justin Thomas (+1100) and Scottie Scheffler (+1200) are the three betting favorites at Caesars Sportsbook to win this week’s US Open at The Country Club in Brookline, outside of Boston, and they’re also taking in the most betting action at Caesars Sportsbook. Defending champion Jon Rahm (+1400) isn’t generating the same interest as those three.

McIlroy, who won the Canadian Open on Sunday to become the favorite for the US Open, is taking the most money of any player at 9 percent of all bets to win. He is followed by Thomas, this year’s PGA Championship winner, and reigning Masters champion Scheffler, with eight percent each. Scheffler leads in total walks at 8 percent with Thomas and McIlroy both at 7 percent.

Rahm has placed five separate futures bets of at least $1,000, tied for the most of any golfer with Shane Lowry (+2,500), but is only seventh in total number of walks at four percent and eighth in the total dollars wagered with five percent.

“I’m a little surprised that Rahm isn’t in that mix,” said Anthony Salleroli, lead golf trader at Caesars Sportsbook. “Maybe if Rory hadn’t approached the Canadian Open like he did, Rahm could have supplanted Rory. Being in the top 10 in tickets and dollars is nothing to sneeze at, but I don’t think there should be a big surprise.” action difference between him and the other top three. Rahm’s only win of the season was the Mexican Open, which featured a lackluster field. But he is a top player and I think he will play very well on this course. .”

A bettor from New Jersey is pretty high on Lanto Griffin who is +25000 to win. That bettor left $1000 on Griffin for a top 5 finish at +4000, $1500 for a top 10 finish at +1600 and $3000 for a top 20 finish at +650. Griffin’s best finish at the US Open was 35th last year.

The biggest liability in the book to win is Phil Mickelson at +20000. The US Open is the only major he hasn’t won. Mickelson has finished as runner-up six times in the event. The second biggest liability is on Sam Burns at +2500.

“For whatever reason, Burns just lacks that star power that the public hasn’t quite grasped yet,” Salleroli said. “We couldn’t get people off him from a betting standpoint, we made some aggressive moves on his odds here in Nevada because his liability just kept going up. He’s an amazing talent, young guy and in great shape. He’s definitely going to be one of the guys I’ll keep a steady eye on.
