If you want to understand how our U.S. Open odds work, you need to learn how American odds work too. If a golfer has golf betting odds listed in negative format, this means they are considered one of the favorites to win the competition.
Let’s say that Dustin Johnson was priced at -110 to win in the US Open odds 2021 market. This means you would need to wager $110 to win $100. Similarly, if Jon Rahm was priced at -200 to win in the US Open odds 2021 market, you would need to wager $200 to win $100.
Given the sheer volume of entrants in a golf major like the US Open, most golfers are priced in positive format, with lots of permutations available. Let’s say that Bryson DeChambeau was priced at +1500 to win back-to-back US Open titles. If you wagered $100 and DeChambeau succeeds, you would win $1500 in prize money, with your initial $100 stake also returned to you.
There appears to be a cluster of eight players that the leading US sportsbooks deem to have a solid chance of winning the 2021 US Open at the Torrey Pines South Course. Spaniard Jon Rahm is the outright pre-tournament favorite. His odds to win US Open 2021 are as short as +800 with DraftKings, which offers one of the leading sign-up promotions, including a $1000 matched deposit bonus for all new users. Rahm tied fifth at the recent Augusta Masters and is still third in the official world golf rankings.
The current official world number one is Dustin Johnson, who is joint second favorite. His odds to win US Open 2021 are broadly +1400, along with Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau.
One intriguing name near the top of the US Open golf odds grids is Jordan Spieth, who the US sportsbooks believe to be a +1600 contender along with Rory McIlroy. Spieth came second in the recent Charles Schwab Challenge and tied for third at this year’s Masters. These flashes of a return to form for Spieth have been well and truly noted by sportsbook traders.
There are many US Open odds markets to choose from, giving you flexibility with your 2021 U.S. Open betting. You don’t just get the option to wager on the outright winner of the 2021 US Open. There is a plethora of prop bets available too. You can use your golf knowledge to pinpoint value in the markets, whether it’s betting on a player to make or miss the cut or lead the tournament at some stage of the four-day event.
When it comes to developing a strategy for betting on US Open odds, it’s important to expect the unexpected. This is an event that is well-known for delivering shock outcomes. In 2009, unknown amateur Lucas Glover took down the tournament to the amazement of the golfing world. Of course, more often than not, the elite players win but given that this tournament boasts one of the biggest field sizes there is always room for upsets.
The last time the US Open came to Torrey Pines was in 2008 when Tiger Woods strolled to victory. Given that Woods will be absent this time through injury, it leaves the field wide open. Accuracy off the tee is one of the major defining factors that sets US Open winners apart from losers. That’s why the likes of Bryson DeChambeau are once again likely to be in the mix.
However, accuracy from the fairway will be equally important given the notoriously punishing rough at Torrey Pines, as well as the strong breeze from the Pacific. This would play into the hands of technicians such as Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm and Dustin Johnson. All of whom have exceptional iron games.
Veteran Phil Mickelson has been runner-up six times in the US Open. The American secures entry to this year’s tournament after surprising everyone to win the PGA Championship. The in-form lefty could be an interesting value play for Top 5 or even Top 10 markets.
In the last decade, players with huge US Open odds pre-tournament have been known to go on and take down the biggest prize on the PGA Tour. In 2014, Martin Kaymer was priced at +10000 before winning at Pinehurst in fine style. Webb Simpson’s odds to win US Open 2012 were also +5000 when he saw off Graeme McDowell and Michael Thompson to prevail at Olympic Club by a single stroke.
It’s always a good idea to check out the insights and analysis from the leading golf tipsters. Geoff Fienberg’s golf picks are notorious with OddsChecker users for finding value on the PGA Tour, as well as majors like the US Open golf odds.
Jon Rahm’s the clear favorite in the 2021 US Open odds market, with his odds being set at +1000. There will be plenty willing to take Jon Rahm on due to his unusual build-up to the tournament, however, given the performance from Rahm a couple of weeks ago there will also be plenty making him their number one U.S. Open pick.
For the latest picks & predictions, watch Geoff Fienberg with this massive preview for this week's U.S. Open.
The 2021 US Open begins in earnest on Thursday 17 June to Sunday 20 June. It will be the 121st US Open.

The 121st US Open is due to be held at the Torrey Pines South Course, in San Diego, California. The South Course at Torrey Pines is one of two designed by William F. Bell. However, it was redesigned in 2001 and extended to 7,698 yards in total.
The 2020 U.S. Open was won by Bryson DeChambeau, who claimed his first major championship, finishing six-under-par. The big-hitting DeChambeau finished six strokes clear of runner-up Matthew Wolff. It was the first US Open staged in September for more than a century.
Tiger Woods’ presence at Torrey Pines will not be felt this year. The golf icon sustained severe injuries in a single-car crash in February 2021, which have kept him out of action ever since. Woods is undertaking a comprehensive rehabilitation programme, with a view to returning to professional golf as soon as possible.
With Tiger Woods ruled out of action at the 2021 US Open due to injury, you won’t find any U.S. Open odds 2021 markets available on Tiger Woods to win at Torrey Pines.
