We already know Phil Mickelson is the big favorite among media types (raises own hand) but Vegas thinks he is too.

Here's a look at your new odds for the final round of the 2013 US Open from Bovada:

Favorite

Phil Mickelson: 2-1

Other favorites

Charl Schwartzel: 9-2
Steve Stricker: 13-2
Hunter Mahan: 7-1
Justin Rose: 8-1
Luke Donald: 9-1

Fringe contenders

Jason Day: 12-1
Billy Horschel : 14-1

The "we'd be shocked if they won" group

Rickie Fowler: 33-1

No chance

Ian Poulter: 100-1
Henrik Stenson: 125-1
Nicolas Colsaerts: 125-1
Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano: 150-1
John Senden: 150-1

I love, love, love that Fowler at 33-1 bet. Last year Webb Simpson came from four strokes down (sound familiar?) and leaped seven golfers (sound familiar?) to win the 2012 Open. No reason Fowler can't do the same this year.

I also like Donald at 9-1. That group is a crapshoot and he's getting you the best odds.
