U.S Open lookahead favorites

Rory McIlroy (+1,100)

Taking over the top spot to kick off the U.S. Open week is Rory McIlroy at +1,200, doing so after his title-defending victory at the RBC Canadian Open over the weekend.

Rory's first of four major championship victories came at the 2011 U.S. Open at Congressional as a 21-year-old. He lapped the field, winning by eight shots.

McIlroy was also in contention for the 2021 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines but faded away during his final-round back-nine, finishing T7.

Is this the year McIlroy gets back into the major championship Winner's Circle? He'll look to use his PGA Championship result as motivation after squandering a Round 1 lead for an eighth-place finish. Still, Rory's had four straight Top-20 finishes and within the Top 10 in three consecutive majors.

Justin Thomas (+1,200)

Coming in at +1,200 is PGA Championship winner, Justin Thomas.

In an epic battle, JT claimed victory in a playoff win over Will Zalatoris. capping off his second win at the event.

We know how good Thomas can be when he's on, and it's a very good shot he'll carry his consistently stellar play over to June's major. The former World No. 1 is worth keeping your eyes on.

Scottie Scheffler (+1,500)

No need to overcomplicate things, next on the board is the No. 1 golfer in the world, Scottie Scheffler.

Scheffler went on a run for the ages earlier this year, culminating in a win at the Masters. And he's shown resiliency, too. After missing the cut at the PGA Championship, Scheffler nearly won the Charles Schwab Challenge, losing to Sam Burns in a playoff. 

Jon Rahm (+1,500)

Last year's U.S. Open champion Jon Rahm is back near the top of odds board for 2022 with odds of +1,400.

Rahm's dramatic U.S. Open victory at Torrey Pines was his first (long overdue) major title. In 2021, he was a major championship killer with no finish worse than T8 at the PGA Championship at Kiawah.

After winning the Mexico Open back in April, Rahm couldn't capture that magic at the PGA, finishing +6 and T48. He did, however, finish T10 at the Memorial Tournament two weeks ago, so the former World No. 1 is consistently in the mix. All eyes will be on Rahm to see if he can complete the repeat U.S. Open victory.

U.S. Open lookahead long shots and underdogs

Will Zalatoris (+3,000)

Mr. Will Zalatoris deserves some shine in a spot like this.

While his odds of +3,000 aren't that long, we can see the PGA Championship runner-up making some noise this week.

Although he's never captured a major championship, it feels like he's right there, knocking at the door just waiting to be let in. At 30/1 odds, Zalatoris should be on the top of everybody's mind.

Abraham Ancer (+8,000)

Abraham Ancer at +8,000 might be someone who deserves some eyes on him heading into the third major of the golf calendar. Although he hasn't picked up a win, Ancer finished T9 at the PGA Championship, so that may have provided some much-needed confidence heading into this course. He finished T56 in this tournament last year, but expect him to provide a better result this year.
