Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy Still Betting Favorites for 2012 U.S. Open


Las Vegas, Nevada (April 9, 2012)--Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy, despite finishing 40th at The Masters, opened at 8/1 and co-betting favorites at the U.S. Open to be played at Olympic Club in San Francisco. Masters sensation Bubba Watson appears to have good value at 30/1. For this week's RBC Heritage, Luke Donald opened 7/1 and as the Las Vegas betting favorite.--By Brian Hurlburt, Odds by Jeff Sherman.

As for Tiger, the Las Vegas betting experts think he has the potential to play at a high level but also the public continues to bet him. "Due to there are two months for him to work on getting back to how he performed two weeks ago in the Arnold Palmer Invitational, he is still a favorite," says LVH Superbook Assistant Director Jeff Sherman. "Also, there is such public support for him that we will have liability at 8/1 and at this time there is no need to go higher than that. He was our largest liabilility in the Masters after being supported at 9/2."

Jim Furyk is listed as the favorite by Rob Bolton at the official PGATour.com Power Rankings. Furyk is 15/1 to win in Las Vegas (As a side note, Furyk is a 3-time champ of Las Vegas' PGA Tour event, the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open).

Bolton writes the following about Furyk: "The 2010 champ also has a pair of second-place finishes and a solo fourth in his last seven starts at Harbour Town. He's coming off a solo 11th at the Masters. Prior to that, he finished T11 at Bay Hill the week after a playoff loss at Copperhead."
