2024 U.S. Open picks, odds, field: Surprising predictions by PGA golf model that's won 12 majors (2024)

Scottie Scheffler has never won a major outside of Augusta National, but he heads to the 2024 U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2 as one of the shortest betting favorites in over a decade. Scheffler won the Memorial Tournament last week, marking his fifth win of the season. He is the 11-4 favorite in the 2024 U.S. Open odds and has not finished outside the top 20 since last August. Should you back Scheffler at short odds with your 2024 U.S. Open prediction? Scheffler will have to fend off other 2024 U.S. Open contenders like Rory McIlroy (10-1), Xander Schauffele (10-1) and Bryson DeChambeau (10-1).

Pinehurst No. 2 has not hosted the top PGA pros since 2014, so which course factors matter the most when you comb through the 2024 U.S. Open field ahead of Thursday's 2024 U.S. Open tee times starting at 6:45 a.m. ET? Before locking in any 2024 U.S. Open picks of your own, entering PGA DFS lineups on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel, or finalizing U.S. Open props and U.S. Open Pick 6 or PrizePicks entries, be sure to see the 2024 U.S. Open 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 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 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 the last three Masters and 2024 PGA Championship. Anyone who has followed it is way up.

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

Top 2024 U.S. Open predictions

One major surprise the model is calling for at the 2024 U.S. Open: Xander Schauffele, one of the top favorites and the most recent major winner at the PGA Championship, stumbles and barely cracks the top five. Schauffele finally picked up his first major win in 28 tries when he held off Bryson DeChambeau and Viktor Hovland at Valhalla in May.

That has vaulted him up in the PGA odds as he's now the co-second favorite in the U.S. Open 2024 odds. However, his overall track record doesn't justify that kind of status as he has just three top-five finishes in majors since 2019. He also was shaky at The Memorial over the weekend, shooting two rounds of 73 or higher to fall out of contention. The model has found better values to utilize in 2024 U.S. Open bets.See who else to fade here.

Another surprise: Brooks Koepka, a 20-1 longshot, makes a strong run at the title. He has a much better chance to win than his long odds imply, so he's a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. Koepka went on one of the most memorable winning streaks in the history of major championships several years ago, winning four majors in just two years.

He opened that stretch with a win in the 2017 U.S. Open, and he added another U.S. Open victory to his resume when he defended his title in 2018. Koepka added a runner-up finish in 2019 and a T4 in 2021 before finishing T17 last year. He has not cracked the top 15 at a major in his last four tries, but he is primed to make a run at another major title this weekend, especially since he finished T4 when Pinehurst No. 2 hosted the 2014 U.S. Open.See who else to back here.

How to make 2024 U.S. Open picks

The model is also targeting two other golfers with odds of 20-1 or longer to make a strong run at the title. It's also targeting two triple-digit longshots in its best bets. Anyone who backs these longshots could hit it big. You can only see the model's picks here.

Who will win the 2024 U.S. Open, and which longshots will stun the golfing world?
