Scottie Scheffler is the shortest major favorite for this week's U.S. Open since Tiger Woods in 2009, according to

Scheffler is priced at +290 (which equates to an implied probability of 25.6%) at theScore Bet to win at Pinehurst No. 2 following his Memorial Tournament victory. Tiger was +175 at the 2009 PGA Championship.

Before last week's victory, Scheffler was +375 to win this week's U.S. Open.

For reference, Scheffler was +400 to win the PGA Championship and +450 to win the Masters, the two shortest pre-tournament odds at major championships since Woods in 2013.

The favorites

Player Odds
Scottie Scheffler +290
Rory McIlroy +1100
Xander Schauffele +1200
Collin Morikawa +1500
Brooks Koepka +1600
Bryson DeChambeau +1600
Viktor Hovland +1700
Ludvig Aberg +2000
Jon Rahm +2800

Rory McIlroy and Xander Schauffele are the two players given the best chances of beating Scheffler. McIlroy is still searching for his first major title since 2014 and Schauffele is looking to win back-to-back majors after hoisting the Wanamaker Trophy at May's PGA Championship.

Two-time U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka and 2020 winner Bryson DeChambeau have the shortest odds of LIV players. Jon Rahm - who withdrew from last week's LIV event in Houston due to a foot injury - is +2800.

The next tier

Player Odds
Cam Smith +3300
Tommy Fleetwood +3500
Matt Fitzpatrick +4000
Hideki Matsuyama +4500
Justin Thomas +4500
Max Homa +4500
Patrick Cantlay +4500
Sahith Theegala +5500
Wyndham Clark +5500
Shane Lowry +6000
Tom Kim +6000
Tony Finau +6000
Tyrrell Hatton +6000
Jordan Spieth +6600
Keegan Bradley +7000
Corey Conners +7500
Min Woo Lee +7500
Robert MacIntyre +7500
Sam Burns +7500
Will Zalatoris +7500

Since Scheffler is soaking up a huge portion of the win equity, players like Justin Thomas, Max Homa, and Patrick Cantlay have much longer odds than we've come to expect at major championships.

Tiger Woods, who is teeing it up for just the third time this year, is a long shot at +20000 (0.5% implied probability).
