US Open Odds, Betting Picks & Field

After taking place on the Atlantic coast in Boston last year, the U.S. Open heads from “sea to shining sea” to the shores of the Pacific at the Los Angeles Country Club for the 2023 edition. It’s the year’s third major and first since LIV Golf’s Brooks Koepka won the PGA Championship in Rochester, New York, last month. Jon Rahm won the Masters this year and will be looking for his second U.S. Open title after claiming victory at Torrey Pines in 2021. Here are the 2023 US Open Odds and our betting preview!

PGA Tour Odds

The field of 156 players includes several amateurs through the USGA’s unique qualifying format. The courses are famously set up with extremely difficult conditions like tight fairways, thick rough, and fast greens.

This is the 122nd edition of the tournament. The record for wins is four, shared by Jack Nicklaus, Ben Hogan, Bobby Jones, and Willie Anderson. Matt Fitzpatrick won last year’s event, and the only active multi-time winner is Koepka with two. 

The Course

Los Angeles Country Club opened in 1899 but is hosting this event for the first time. It also just finished an extensive renovation that took the better part of 15 years. The course measures 7,423 yards and par is 70. In fact, the five par-3 and three par-5 layout is a first in U.S. Open history.

As far as tournament records, Rory McIlroy holds the lowest aggregate score at 268, which was set in 2011 at Congressional in Bethesda, Maryland. His -16 to par that year was matched by Koepka at Erin Hills in Wisconsin in 2017.

Scheffler Favored to Win First Major

In shooting a 65 in the final round last year, Scottie Scheffler (+700) back-doored his way to a runner-up finish in last year’s U.S. Open. While he hasn’t won a major yet, he’s won six times overall since the start of 2022. He’s also on an incredible run in 2023, having finished no worse than 12th all calendar year. More recently, he’s racked up four straight top-five finishes, including a tie for runner-up at the PGA Championship last month.

Jon Rahm and Brooks Koepka, +1000 each, are the two major winners in 2023 and also former U.S. Open champions. Koepka returned to good health at the end of last year and won on the LIV Golf last October and this March. He followed that up with a runner-up at the Masters after being the 54-hole leader and got the job done at the PGA by not relinquishing his lead going into Sunday. Rahm has cooled off a bit from earlier this year, but his pace of winning three out of five tournaments is tough to top. The Masters winner returns to California, where he won the last major in the state (2021 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines) and two times earlier this year.

Other Contenders

Rory McIlroy (+1400) continues to try and rediscover his game after missing the cut at the Masters. While he’s struggled on Sundays in recent weeks, he does have three straight top-10 finishes to his credit, including a seventh at Oak Hill at the PGA. 

Two golfers in line for their first major championship are at +1500. Viktor Hovland is coming off a comeback win at The Memorial, capping off a run of great finishes at the year’s biggest events. Prior to the victory, he tied for second at the PGA, was seventh at the Masters, and third at The Players Championship. Patrick Cantlay hasn’t won yet this year, but the 2021 FedEx Cup champion has three podium finishes and has come in 14th and ninth in the first two majors this year.

Xander Schauffele (+1800) is also looking for major win No. 1 to add to his gold medal from the most-recent Olympic games. Schauffele is a perfect 6-for-6 and has been 14th or better in each of his U.S. Open attempts. He also hasn’t missed a cut yet this season and is on a run of eight consecutive top-25 finishes.

Max Homa (+2500) has been somewhat quiet as of late, but he’s returning to his home state of California, where he’s a proven winner. Just this season, he’s won at Silverado in Napa, the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines, and was a tough second to Rahm at The Genesis Invitational in LA. Despite not having won recently, he has four top 10s in his last eight starts.


There’s good value on defending champion Matt Fitzpatrick at +3000. The Englishman came through in April with a win at the RBC Heritage against an elite field, and he’s got four top-20 finishes in his last six starts.

Tyrrell Hatton (+3000) keeps knocking at the door, and his odds have jumped up from +5000 to +3000 over the past week. That’s because the Englishman finished one shot away from joining the playoff at the RBC Canadian Open last week, capping a run of strong finishes as of late. Since a runner-up at The Players, Hatton has four top-five finishes in his last 10 starts.

Tommy Fleetwood (+4000) lost a heartbreaker to home-country favorite Nick Taylor in Canada last week when Taylor slammed home a 72-foot putt for eagle on the fourth playoff hole, denying Fleetwood his first PGA Tour title. But the six-time winner on the DP World Tour seemed unphased, shifting his focus quickly to this week’s major. Fleetwood has seven top 25s in 14 starts this season and has three top-five results in his last eight tournaments. 

2023 US Open Odds

Scheffler’s putting hasn’t been the best as of late, but he’s so dominant that he could win despite that. Given his run of top 10s, he can’t be ignored. We’re not as keen on the form as of late with Rahm or McIlroy, but we’ll back Koepka again. We’ll also back Hovland, Homa, and Hatton—three Hs all with good value going into LACC.
