U.S. Open Odds 2021: Dustin Johnson Favored at +1000 to Win
Last year’s 2020 US Open was a different one, as it was played at Winged Foot in New York, but also in September due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But for the 2021 season, it is set to take place again in the summer and will be at Torrey Pines. This makes for a more comfortable betting atmosphere with familiar territory for most.
The US Open is one of the top tournaments each year in golf, as one of the majors. From Tiger Woods’ domination in 2000 to Brooks Koepka winning back-to-back in 2017 and 2018, the US Open has always been fun to watch. Let’s take a look at the betting odds, schedule, and some US Open history dating back over 120 years.

|Golfer||US Open Odds|
The above list is the top 20 golfers in terms of US Open odds on DraftKings Sportsbook. The favorite is Dustin Johnson, then Jon Rahm and Bryson DeChambeau close behind along with Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas. The odds to win the US Open have some very similar prices as the Masters odds, which indicate that sportsbooks are handicapping odds very similarly for the 2021 PGA season.
For the full list, head to DraftKings Sportsbook.
Xander Schauffele US Open Odds 2021
After a great performance so far in the early 2021 season and the Masters, Schauffele’s odds to win the US Open rose to +1400.
Schauffele is a rising star in the world of golf, and he will look to continue to climb the ranks in the US Open. As of late April, only Justin Thomas, Rory McIlroy, Bryson DeChambeau, Jon Rahm, and Dustin Johnson had better odds to win the US Open.
Dustin Johnson is the US Open Favorite with +1000 Odds
To no one’s surprise, the best golfer in the world in Dustin Johnson opens as the favorite to win the 2021 US Open at +1000 on DraftKings Sportsbook. In the 2020 US Open, Johnson finished sixth. Then in three consecutive events finished T2, won the Masters, then finished T11 in the Tournament of Champions along with other top finishes. When the summer rolls around, Johnson is expected to be in top form again and it’s one of many reasons why he is the favorite to win.
Brooks Koepka’s Odds at +1400 to Win US Open
After Brooks Koepka won the 2021 Waste Management Open, his odds to win the US Open rose to +1600, then moved down to +1400 after the Masters. When Koepka is playing with good form, he truly is one of the better golfers in the world. There are only five players with better odds than him as of the opening odds, with just Thomas, McIlroy, DeChambeau, Rahm, and Johnson ahead of him.
Tigers Woods Odds to Win The US Open Set at +2800
Tiger Woods’ odds to win the US Open was +4500 in 2020, but for the 2021 event his odds opened at +2800. Of course, Tiger Woods has a history at the US Open as he has won the tournament three times including the famous 2000 US Open where Tiger Woods won by fifteen strokes over Miguel Ángel Jiménez and Ernie Els. While the 272 final score was not a US Open record, the overwhelming dominance of a player to win by 15 strokes is incredible. The above video details just that in the “Perfection at Pebble”. You can bet on Tiger Woods to win the US Open at DraftKings Sportsbook.
After his car accident, Tiger Woods’ odds were removed from DraftKings Sportsbook.
Bryson DeChambeau Wins 2020 US Open
In last year’s event, the schedule due to the COVID-19 postponements pushed the US Open until September. In the fall event, Bryson DeChambeau dominated the competition and won by six strokes. Will he repeat in 2021 at Torrey Pines?
