U.S. Open 2013 odds: Adam Scott, Phil Mickelson emerge as favorites

Drew Hallowell

Tiger Woods began the day as the favorite to win, but a rough first round has dropped him in Vegas.

Most of the field at the 2013 U.S. Open had their first rounds suspended due to inclement weather on Thursday. There was still plenty of movement on the leaderboard, though, with Luke Donald taking a one-stroke lead over the field at 4-under par. Phil Mickelson and Adam Scott are tied for second place at 3-under par, while Webb Simpson, Mathew Goggin and Alistair Presnell are two strokes back at 2-under par.

The oddsmakers in Las Vegas have shifted the odds for who will win the tournament. According to Bovada, Scott and Mickelson have emerged as the favorites with 6/1 odds. Donald is right behind them at 7/1, while Tiger Woods, who began the tournament as the favorite, dropped down to 12/1.

Lee Westwood, Rory McIlroy and Webb Simpson round out the top of the list with 16/1 odds.

Here is a look at the odds for the top players in contention:

Adam Scott 6/1
Phil Mickelson 6/1
Luke Donald 7/1
Tiger Woods 12/1
Lee Westwood 16/1
Rory McIlroy 16/1
