The 121st US Open begins on Thursday and wraps up on Sunday. The third major championship of the calendar will take place at Torrey Pines in San Diego.
Bryson DeChambeau is the defending US Open champion, and he’s been in the news recently because of tension with fellow top contender Brooks Koepka. The USGA won’t pair DeChambeau and Koepka together this weekend.
As always, you can bet on the US Open at all six of Illinois’ online sportsbooks.
Below you can find odds, bonus offers and a preview of this weekend’s festivities.
2021 US Open odds
Here are the odds to win the US Open outright at some of the most popular Illinois sportsbooks.
As you can see, the prices vary by book on most golfers. So if you have an inkling on a certain guy, it’s probably worth line shopping.
We should also note that BetRivers and Barstool use the same odds as DraftKings.
While you can bet on the winner at every sportsbook, certain apps also allow users to get more creative.
For example, DraftKings offers prices on whether a golfer will finish in the top five, 10, 20, 30, and so on. FanDuel offers head-to-head golfer matchups and props, such as the leader of a certain round.
Illinois books also offer props related to players’ nationalities and hole-in-one odds. If you’re not interested in simply betting on the winner, there are plenty of other ways to bet on golf.
US Open boosts, offers at Illinois sportsbooks
BetRivers in Illinois is offering customers a free bet.
If you place a US Open wager of $25 or more, you’ll receive a $10 free bet from BetRivers. The wager must have odds of -200 or longer, and the free bet will expire after seven days.
DraftKings, meanwhile, is playing up the Koepka vs. DeChambeau beef.
Both golfers are boosted to +110 odds to win in a head-to-head matchup. The offer expires on Thursday, and the maximum bet is $25.
Koepka and DeChambeau are very close on the DraftKings odds board, though the latter has slightly shorter odds to win.
Over at FanDuel, Pat McAfee is taking Collin Morikawa, Will Zalatoris, and Jason Kokrak all to make the cut this weekend at +250. Without the boost, the odds would be +135. Boosts are pretty common for major events, but that’s among the most significant you’ll see.
2021 US Open preview
Torrey Pines is home to the Farmers Insurance Open, where Patrick Reed most recently won by five strokes.
Looking at the odds board, this appears to be a wide-open tournament. But keep in mind: The past six US Open winners have had an average world ranking of 12.5 going into the weekend. In general, big names have won this major as of late.
Jon Rahm, the consensus favorite, also won at Torrey Pines in 2017. He’s fresh off of COVID-19, but Rahm has been incredibly consistent in 2021.
He’s racked up six top-10 finishes this year and almost certainly would have won The Memorial if not for an ill-timed positive COVID-19 test.
The 2021 US Open will air on a combination of NBC, the Golf Channel, and Peacock, NBC’s streaming service.
