Betting odds to win the U.S. Open continued to see plenty of movement after Saturday's Round 3 at the Torrey Pines South Course in sunny San Diego. And the favorite finally changed, with Jon Rahm falling from his perch atop the U.S. Open odds board.

Heading into Round 4, Louis Oosthuizen is in a three-way tie atop the leaderboard and alone on the odds board as the +325 chalk at The SuperBook. But Rory McIlroy and several other big names aren't far behind Oosthuizen, and the other two co-leaders obviously hope to have a say Sunday, as well.

Here are the current PGA odds to win the U.S. Open, which runs June 17-20.

Latest US Open betting action: Oosthuizen favored to win

UPDATE 1 A.M. ET SUNDAY: There's finally been a change at the top of the U.S. Open odds board, and all it took for Louis Oosthuizen to get there was sinking a 52-foot eagle putt on the 18th hole to wrap up Round 3. That gave Oosthuizen a 1-under 70 for a 5-under 208 total, tied with the steady Russell Henley and surging Mackenzie Hughes.

The SuperBook's updated odds to win the U.S. Open have Oosthuizen a +325 favorite, with Hughes the +700 fourth choice and Henley the +750 fifth choice.

"Louis is a good-but-not-great result for us," SuperBook risk manager Neil Fitzroy said, before moving on to the unlikely co-leaders Henley and Hughes. "Henley closed 250/1 pre-tournament, and there were only five tickets out there at that price. Small stuff, a few $5 bets and an $18 bet. Hughes closed 500/1, with only one ticket on him at that price, for $5. There has been some interest in Henley in the adjusted market, smaller-dollar tickets. There has been more interest in Hughes in the adjusted market than Henley. There are a couple of three-figure bets out there, one at 80/1 and and one at 50/1."

Sandwiched between Oosthuizen and his co-leaders on the odds board are two much more household names: Rory McIlroy and Bryson DeChambeau, both at 3-under 210 and both +500. McIlroy shot a solid 67 and DeChambeau 68, and despite their name recognition, both would be welcome winners behind The SuperBook counter.

"Surprisingly, not much interest in McIlroy during play earlier (in the tournament) or tonight," Fitzroy said late Saturday evening. "His price was slowly dropping with every hole he completed. Maybe everyone felt like they missed the value and are content with dodging him (Sunday)."

In fact, many names in the hunt are good for The SuperBook, including Henley and Hughes. Among those The SuperBook hopes to dodge Sunday at Torrey Pines are Matthew Wolff (+2,200), Xander Schauffele (+2,000) and Collin Morikawa (+2,500), with Wolff three shots back at 2-under 211, and Schauffele and Morikawa at 212.

"Wolff is the worst-case scenario," said Fitzroy, likely grateful after Wolff bogeyed two of his last five holes Saturday for a 2-over 73. "We went all the way out to 150/1 on him near the end of May. And Wednesday night, one of our regulars came in with a mid-three-figure bet on him at 150/1."

That's a quick way to high-five-figure liability. In addition, The SuperBook is sweating a couple of tournament matchup props.

"We need Dustin Johnson to beat Rahm. Johnson is currently one shot back," Fitzroy said. "And we need Jordan Spieth to beat McIlroy. Spieth is currently four shots back."

Rahm, the pre-tournament favorite and the top choice after Rounds 1 and 2, is now +1,000 in a group at 2-under 211.

DeChambeau was the 2020 winner, cashing in for his backers at a solid +2,200. His odds to win this year are slightly better but still outside of the Top 5 favorites.
