Early Odds for the 2021 US Open

Going on 13 years since Tiger’s heroic one-legged triumph, it’s about time the US Open returns to San Diego.

Surprisingly to some, it’s not too early to bet on the most prestigious tournament on the USGA calendar. As you can see below, the 2021 US Open odds have already been released.

Dustin leads the way, although don’t be in a rush to pull the trigger on DJ. His price won’t get any lower than it is right now, and it’s bound to become more favorable as time passes by.

On the flip side, there are some US Open futures bets I recommend pouncing on right away. More on those momentarily. 

When and Where is the 2021 US Open

  • June 17-20
  • The South Course at Torrey Pines – La Jolla, CA

The scenic cliffs off the coast in La Jolla will be the setting for the 2021 US Open. The final round falls on Father’s Day, exactly four weeks after the PGA Championship concludes.

The beginning of the summer is a great time to find some form, especially considering how demanding the South Course’s layout is. This Torrey Pines course guide delves further into that topic. 

Now for the portion of the post that exposes the value steeped into the early odds for the 2021 US Open.

Three names come to mind.

Rory McIlroy +1200

Rory’s 2021 US Open odds may not be bursting with value, but I’ll tell you what jumps off the page about McIlroy’s chances in June.

McIlroy’s results in his two appearances at the Farmers Insurance Open. T5 in 2019 and T3 in 2020.

It’s quite clear that the location of the 2021 US Open is a big reason “Rors” added the Farmers to his schedule.

McIlroy will arrive with sightlines off the tees already picked out, it’s just a matter of dialing in his short game.

Given his track record at Torrey Pines, the four-time major winner figures to have as good of a chance as anyone at hoisting this coveted trophy. For more confirmation about this pick, check out this blog featuring betting advice for the 2021 golf majors.

Tony Finau +3500

In terms of a player who has what it takes to win a US Open at Torrey Pines, this man checks all the boxes.

The 31-year-old has racked up eight top-10s at the majors and sports a glistening record at the South Course.

Tony Finau’s Career Results at the Farmers Insurance Open
Year Finish
2015 24th
2016 18th
2017 4th
2018 6th
2019 13th
2020 6th

Seemingly in contention every year at the Farmers Insurance Open, it shouldn’t be a surprise that Tony’s a great fit at this venue. Finau is a west coast guy who hits it deep, hits it flush, and can reel off as many birdies as anyone.

Due to his sparkling resume at Torrey Pines, it’s unlikely Tony’s price gets any “better” than +3500.

Gary Woodland +10000

+10000 odds seem rather disrespectful for the guy who won the US Open in the state of California in the summer of 2019.

Gary’s lingering back injury has held him back from playing his best, and therefore, his recent results have been poor. At the same time, The 2021 US Open odds could look a lot different six months down the road.

As Woodland’s back gets “back” to full strength, his ball speed and confidence will follow suit. All it takes is a few good tournaments and Gary’s price will be adjusted. Instead of waiting until that happens, lock in the “bonus equity” now.
