US Open Odds for 2023

Bookies top favourites

Rham x Scottie 2023

We’re now right in the middle of the peak of the 2023 PGA Tour Season, as the 2023 US Open is less than a month away. 

The tournament, which operates on a rotating basis at some of the best country clubs and golf courses in the entire United States, will take place in the blistering Southern California sunshine this year, slated for Father’s Day weekend between June 15 to June 18 at the Los Angeles County Country Club’s North Course in the beautiful, rolling Beverly Hills. 

As one might expect for one of the year’s top golfing events (taking place in the heart of America’s media market) the hype is already building even with more than three weeks to go before the event takes place.

Favourite Contenders

As of right now, American Scottie Scheffler is the favorite to win the US Open, listed at or around +850 at sportsbooks in the United States. He’s the current PGA Tour No. 1, but the 26-year-old has just one Major championship under his belt to this point, the 2022 Masters.

Jon Rahm, the Spaniard who won this year’s Masters (as well as the 2021 US Open, which he managed to top the podium for despite having just gotten over a COVID-19 infection) clocks in at second, at or around +900.

Brooks Koepka, who just won the PGA Championship last weekend on a brutal course, has the fourth-best odds, sitting around +1200, well above his No. 13 spot in the PGA rankings.

Odds could change a lot in the next three weeks if there’s upheaval in the standings, and the betting lines can vary quite a bit from sportsbook to sportsbook.

Be sure to shop around if you think you’ve got a winning bet so that you can lock in the best possible odds, and use one of these sportsbook promo codes while you’re at it so you have a chance at winning even more.

Insights and Course Details

Here’s a look at the second major championship of 2023: storylines to watch, potential picks, and how the course plays so that you have the best possible chance of winning if you bet on the 2023 US Open.
15-time major winner Tiger Woods announced yesterday that he’s withdrawing from the field in order to take more time to recover from recent surgeries, including a pair of operations to address arthritis in his ankle stemming from his 2021 car crash as well as a plantar fascia repair. 

While a 47-year-old backing out of a young man’s game typically isn’t news, this is Tiger we’re talking about… and he’s already shown he can win it all against overwhelming odds as he did with his 2019 Master’s victory. Just when you count him out, the legend somehow manages to find another gear. 
The final qualifying round for the US Open took place in Dallas earlier this week, with eight golfers out of a field of 120 advancing for a chance to win a major trophy. 
Los Angeles Country Club’s north course is pretty hilly, with a slope rating of 140: compared to the 153 at the Oak Hill Country Club where the PGA Championship took place. 

Koepka could be an excellent sleeper pick as he showed his expert ability to navigate rolling terrain. Scheffler came in just two shots behind him, while Rahm struggled mightily on the course: that could be an aberration, but it’s certainly something to keep in mind as you make your picks for the US Open.

Course Description

Per GolfDigest.com, “The first nine plays rustically up and down a shallow canyon with holes switching back and forth across a dry barranca, and the second nine loops across a more spacious upland section with one par 3 (the 11th) that can stretch to nearly 300 yards and another (the 15th) that often plays just 90 yards.”
The course has seen some extremely unique looks over the years because of the rolling terrain in the foothills of the Santa Monica mountains, with the most recent renovation coming in 2010. 
The balance between the beautiful natural setting (and the bustling streets of Los Angeles just seconds away) makes the course a real treat to watch, and it’ll be interesting to see how the robust media market handles the return of a golfing major tournament for the first time since 1995, when the PGA Championship took place at the Riviera Country Club. 

Even though golf is a relaxed sport when it comes to pageantry, Hollywood is sure to have some influence over the proceedings.
