Current 2021 US Open Odds

Despite spending the last week or so in isolation, Jon Rahm still tops the 2021 US Open odds market. Jon Rahm's US Open preparation is probably one of the most unique in golf history, however, there's no questioning his talent, especially after his Saturday showing at the Memorial Tournament. 

A lot of the world's best golfers took last week off instead of playing the Palmetto Championship. One golfer who didn't was Garrick Higgo. Higgo was the eventual winner of the Palmetto Championship, which caused online sports betting sites cut his 2021 US Open odds from 150/1 to as short as 50/1. 

Dustin Johnson was another who decided to play on the PGA Tour last week, the world number one had a disappointing Sunday, but remains the second-favorite in the US Open odds market at +1400. 

Brooks Koepka had a very disappointing outing on the PGA Tour this week, which caused sportsbooks to lengthen his odds from +1400 to +1800 in the US Open betting market. 

We will have a full breakdown of the 2021 US Open odds market further down the article, but below you will find the favorites in the betting market.

When Is The 2021 US Open?

2021 US Open: Course Breakdown 

Course: Torrey Pines South

Location:San Diego

Date: June 17-20

Par: 71

Yardage: 7,643

Greens: Poa

Torry Pines hosted the US Open back in 2008 when Tiger Woods won the event with effectively no knee. However, the course features on the PGA Tour every year as it plays host to the Farmers Insurance Open. 

The Farmers Insurance Open is hosted by both the South Course and North Course, where as the US Open will just be played on the South Course at Torrey Pines. 

There will be other changes to the course as officials try and make it tougher, as you'd expect for a Major. Hole six has gone from a par 5 to a par 4, and the course has been stretched slightly. Golfers should also expect much trickier rough, as well as much quicker greens. It should be fun to watch! 

2021 US Open: Key Stats Needed For DraftKings Fantasy Games

Below are the key states needed to win the 2021 US Open at Torrey Pines. 

  • Driving Distance 
  • Shots Gained Approach
  • Strokes Gained Around The Green 
  • Par 4 Scoring (450-500 yards)
  • Shouts Gained Putting

Like every single major, social media will be flooded with videos of the rough ahead of the 2021 US Open. The rough will be longer than usual, but we wouldn't read too much into the early videos and pictures this week. 

Shots gained putting is always a tricky one to work out, however, you need to make sure you have a player capable of getting hot with the putter at Torrey Pines. In the 2021 Farmers Insurance Open, four of the top six finishes gained more than 4.1 shots on the field with the putter. 

Other than Patrick Reed, who won the 2021 Farmers Insurance Open, every player inside the top 10 gained at least two shots on the field in approach. 

Driving distance will be a benefit at the 2021 US Open, which was obvious at the 2021 Farmers Insurance Open as Rory McIlroy, Luke List, Tony Finau, Lanto Griffin and Jon Rahm all recorded top 20 finishes.
