2013 U.S. Open at Merion Golf Club Betting Odds

*******Updated 6/10- Click here for updated odds and my value picks as of 6/10

The 2013 Masters may have just wrapped up (and damn, Adam Scott looks good in green), but that doesn’t mean it’s too early to start talking about golf’s next major- The U.S. Open.

Just under two months away, the world’s best will be teeing off at the revered Merion Golf Club in Ardmore, PA.  Oh yeah, as in that Merion Golf Club, site of Ben Hogan’s famous 1-iron pose.  This year’s Open will play to a retro-like 6,996 yards, but oh baby that doesn’t mean that it’ll be a bomber’s paradise and scoring fiesta.  Au contraire mon frere!  With DEEP rough (no first and second cuts this year, just the gangly deep stuff), deep bunkers and some wicked fast greens expected to roll 14 on the stimp, it’s going to be a defensive fiesta.

We’ll take a much deeper delve into the field and picks as we get closer, but for now here are the opening odds for this year’s U.S. Open.  No shocker of course that El Tigre is the heavy favorite (#stingercity) at 5/1.  Masters champ Adam Scott is 25/1.
