U.S. Open Golf 2012 Odds: Tiger Woods Remains The Favorite

The 2012 U.S. Open is less than 24 hours from getting underway at the beautiful Olympic Club in San Francisco, California.

While predictions are being tossed around like spare change, BOVADA has listed Tiger Woods as their favorite at 13/2 odds on Wednesday morning.

Woods has been installed as the man to beat after his victory at Jack Nicklaus' course just a few weeks ago. He's almost been given twice the odds that Luke Donald and Lee Westwood have been slapped with at 11/1 odds heading into the last day before the action gets going.

Phil Mickelson is a very intriguing bet at 20/1 while Rory McIlroy comes in at 14/1. McIlroy hasn't been on his game recently, but sometimes the majors have a funny way of bringing out greatness in champions.

Jim Furyk, the West Chester, PA native is at 33/1, a huge improvement from his 80/1 chances just a few days ago. Furyk knows how to win this tournament as he took home the glory in 2003.

Here's a list of the odds as of Wednesday morning:

Tigers Woods 13/2

Luke Donald: 11/1

Lee Westwood: 11/1

Rory McIlroy: 14/1

Phil Mickelson: 20/1

Dustin Johnson: 25/1

Jason Dufner: 25/1

Justin Rose: 28/1

Matt Kuchar: 28/1

Adam Scott: 33/1

Jim Furyk: 33/1

Rickie Fowler: 33/1
