2024 U.S. Open odds, golf picks: Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy predictions by model that nailed the Masters, PGA

Justin Rose’s lone major victory came at the U.S. Open in 2013. He will enter the 2024 U.S. Open as a more seasoned professional, having now won 11 events on the PGA Tour. The 43-year-old secured his best finish of the 2024 season at the PGA Championship in May. However, Rose has struggled throughout the 2024 season, finishing T-44 or worse in six of his last eight starts. The Englishman will be among the top longshots at the 2024 U.S. Open, which gets underway from Pinehurst No. 2 in North Carolina on Thursday, June 13.

Should Rose be included in your 2024 U.S. Open prediction, or are you better off backing a player like Scottie Scheffler, who has secured four wins this season? According to the latest 2024 U.S. Open odds, Scheffler is the 4-1 favorite, while Rose is a 65-1 longshot. Before locking in your 2024 U.S. Open picks or entering any PGA DFS tournaments on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel, be sure to see the golf predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

Our proprietary model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been red-hot since the PGA Tour resumed in June of 2020. In fact, the model is up almost $9,000 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.

McClure’s model correctly predicted Scottie Scheffler would finish on top of the leaderboard at the 2024 Masters, the Arnold Palmer Invitational, and The Players Championship this season. McClure also included Hideki Matsuyama in his best bets to win the 2024 Genesis Invitational. That bet hit at +9000, and for the entire tournament, McClure’s best bets returned nearly $1,000.

The model also predicted Jon Rahm would be victorious at the 2023 Sentry Tournament of Champions and The American Express. At the 2023 Masters, the model was all over Rahm’s second career major victory heading into the weekend. Rahm was two strokes off the lead heading into the third round, but the model still projected him as the winner. It was the second straight Masters win for the model, which also nailed Scheffler winning in 2022.

This same model has also nailed a whopping 12 majors entering the weekend, including three straight Masters and the 2024 PGA Championship. Anyone who has followed it has seen massive returns.

Now that the 2024 U.S. Open is approaching, SportsLine simulated the tournament 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected 2024 U.S. Open leaderboard.

2024 U.S. Open predictions for Brooks Koepka, Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy

One shocker the model is calling for at the U.S. Open 2024: Brooks Koepka (12-1), a five-time major winner and the U.S. Open champion in 2017 and 2018, struggles and barely cracks the top 10. Koepka’s last major victory came at the 2023 PGA Championship, but he hasn’t come close to winning another major since then. He placed outside the top 25 at both of the first two majors this year, and he’s on a streak of four majors without even a top 10 finish, which ties the longest drought without a top 10 in his career.

Koepka has had lots of success in recent international tournaments but has struggled domestically. Over his last 10 starts in the United States, none have resulted in top 10 finishes, despite many of them having smaller fields where it would be easier to make a run up the leaderboard. Additionally, Koepka has played Pinehurst No. 2 once before, and he could only break par just once over his four rounds of play. See who else to fade here

The model has also locked in its projection for Tiger Woods (125-1), a 15-time major winner. This will be Woods’ first U.S. Open start since 2020, when he shot 10-over-par and missed the cut. Since then, he’s made six starts at majors, making two cuts, missing two cuts and withdrawing twice. He missed the cut in his last start at the PGA Championship, but he also noted a physical improvement in how he felt, saying, “I need to clean up my rounds but also know physically, yes, I am better than I was a month ago.”

With another month having passed since that comment, Woods should, theoretically, be in an even better physical state for the U.S. Open. His past success at Pinehurst should also bring optimism with a pair of top-three finishes at the course when it hosted U.S. Opens in 1999 and 2005. It’s been 10 years since Pinehurst No. 2 hosted any PGA Tour event, so much of the U.S. Open 2024 field will be competing at it for the first time. Woods’ experience at the course can’t be overlooked, so he’ll look to lean on that rather than his recent results at majors. See where every golfer finishes here.

On the other hand, the model has examined Rory McIlroy’s (9-1) chances to win his second U.S. Open after being victorious in 2011. McIlroy has been red-hot in recent weeks, securing two wins in his last four starts. He also recorded a T-4 finish at the RBC Canadian Open at the beginning of the month.

McIlroy has been able to secure those positive results thanks to his effectiveness off the tee. The 35-year-old is ranked second in total driving (41), second in driving distance (318.1) and third in strokes gained off the tee (0.861). He has been streaky with his putter in 2024, ranking 40th in strokes gained putting (0.302) and 42nd in putts per round (28.49). See the full U.S. Open projections from the model here.
