Tiger Woods is pegged as the favorite on the odds to win the 2013 U.S. Open this week as the top golfers in the world hit the links at Merion GC in Ardmore, Pennsylvania starting Thursday.

Woods enters the week as the 7/2 favorite at Bovada to win the U.S. Open for the fourth time in his career. Woods last grabbed the trophy at this major event in 2008 at Torrey Pines, and he also won the tournament back in 2002 and 2000. Last year at Olympic Club he ended up tied for 21st place.

Rory McIlroy, who won the U.S. Open in 2011 at Congressional Country Club, is then at 16/1 odds at Bovada for the tournament this week, with Adam Scott third at 20/1 odds, and Matt Kuchar fourth at 22/1 odds.

Brandt Snedeker, Graeme McDowell, Justin Rose, and Phil Mickelson are all then listed at 25/1 on the U.S. Open odds at Bovada, with Mickelson still looking for his first victory at the event; Mickelson tied for 65th place last season. McDowell was the U.S. Open champion at Pebble Beach in 2010.

Charl Schwartzel, Lee Westwood, and Luke Donald all then sit at 28/1 odds, with each of Dustin Johnson, Jason Day, Jason Dufner, and Sergio Garcia at 33/1 odds. Hunter Mahan, Jim Furyk, Keegan Bradley, Louis Oosthuizen, and Steve Stricker hold down 40/1 odds to win the U.S. Open at Bovada.

Defending U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson is back at 50/1 odds to repeat that victory this week, with 2009 winner Lucas Glover a longshot at 150/1 odds to win the tournament once again.

After his impressive win at the Memorial a few weeks ago Tiger Woods is the favorite once again heading into this weekend's US Open at the Olympic Club in San Francisco.

Woods' victory in the Memorial gave him a huge boost on the U.S. Open futures. Before he roared back on the back nine to claim the Memorial Woods wasn't even the most popular wager with bettors at Bovada.

“No doubt that Tiger winning the Memorial has impacted our US Open odds dropping him from 10-1 to win it all before last weekend down to 6-1 now," said Kevin Bradley, Bovada Sportsbook manager.

"Previously guys like Jason Dufner (currently at 25-1) and Zach Johnson (currently at 33-1) were taking the most money but has now switched back to Tiger, who now along with Dufner and Johnson are the biggest losers for us here at the book.”

Woods will be looking for his fourth US Open title this weekend and first since 2008 when he defeated Rocco Mediate on one leg in a playoff at Torrey Pines. Woods has played at the Olympic Club on the tour before, but it was a long time ago, the last time the U.S. Open was held there in 1998.

Woods finished tied for 18th while Lee Janzen won the tournament.

The reigning US Open champion is Rory McIlroy and he follows Woods on the US Open futures, along with Lee Westwood at 12/1. McIlroy completely dominated last year's US Open at the Congressional Country Club, shooting 16 under par for the tournament. His closet opponent was Jason Day who finished eight shots back at eight under. McIlroy has had a difficult time on the course lately, which includes missing the cut at both the Players Championship and the Memorial, but he may be getting back on track after tying for seventh at last week's FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Westwood continues to search for his first Major title after numerous close calls. At last year's US Open, Westwood finished tied for third, his third Top 5 finish in the event and his fourth Top 10. Westwood also finished tied for third in the Master earlier this year and he's finished tied for eighth or better in seven of the last 11 Majors.

The latest Major winner, Bubba Watson who claimed the green jacket at Augusta in May, could be a smart pick for bettors if he can find the fairways with regularity at Olympic. Watson is a 40/1 underdog to claim another Major championship.

The odds on a few other notable names and a few other former US Open winners include Graeme McDowell at 66/1, Lucas Glover at 300/1, Angel Cabrera at 200/1, Geoff Ogilvy at 80/1, Phil Mickelson at 18/1 and Luke Donald at 14/1.
