2022 US Open golf odds: Bettors backing 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 from The Country Club at Brookline outside Boston, and they are also taking the most betting action at Caesars Sportsbook. Defending champion Jon Rahm (+1400) is not 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 nine percent of all bets to win. He’s followed by Thomas, this year’s PGA Championship winner, and reigning Masters champion Scheffler at eight percent apiece. Scheffler leads in total tickets at eight percent with Thomas and McIlroy both at seven percent.

Rahm has drawn five separate futures wagers of at least $1,000, tied for the most of any golfer with Shane Lowry (+2500), but is only seventh in total number of tickets at four percent and eighth in total dollars wagered at five percent.

“I’m kinda surprised that Rahm isn’t in that mix,” said Anthony Salleroli, Lead Golf Trader at Caesars Sportsbook. “Perhaps if Rory didn’t tackle the Canadian Open like he did, Rahm may 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 that big of a difference in action between him and the other three top guys. Rahm’s only win on the season was the Mexican Open, which had a lackluster field to it. But he’s a top-notch player and I think he’s going to play very well at this course .”

One New Jersey bettor is quite high on Lanto Griffin, who is +25000 to win. That bettor dropped $1,000 on Griffin for a top-5 finish at +4000, $1,500 for a top-10 finish at +1600 and $3,000 for a top-20 finish at +650. Griffin’s best US Open finish is 35th last year.

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

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