The odds for this year's US Open have been updated and Rory McIlroy is still the favorite, but barely.

Here's a look (all odds courtesy of Bovada):


Rory McIlroy: 10-1 (Last Week: 8-1)
Adam Scott: 12-1 (LW: 11-1)
Phil Mickelson: 14-1 (LW: 14-1) 

Other favorites

Bubba Watson: 18-1 (LW: 20-1)
Henrik Stenson: 25-1 (LW: 25-1)
Jordan Spieth: 25-1 (LW: 20-1)
Matt Kuchar: 25-1 (LW: 22-1)
Justin Rose: 25-1 (LW: 22-1)
Jason Day: 28-1 (LW: 25-1) 

Fringe favorites

Dustin Johnson: 33-1 (LW: 28-1)
Lee Westwood: 33-1 (LW: 40-1)
Luke Donald: 33-1 (LW: 33-1)
Sergio Garcia: 33-1 (LW: 25-1)

Everyone else

Graeme McDowell: 40-1 (LW: 40-1)
Hideki Matsuyama: 40-1 (LW: 50-1)
Jim Furyk: 40-1 (LW: 33-1)
Jason Dufner: 40-1 (LW: 40-1)
Martin Kaymer: 40-1 (LW: 28-1) 
Charl Schwartzel: 50-1 (LW: 50-1)
Hunter Mahan: 50-1 (LW: 40-1)
Webb Simpson: 50-1 (LW: 50-1)
Jimmy Walker: 50-1 (LW: 50-1)
Steve Stricker: 50-1 (LW: 66-1)
Zach Johnson: 50-1 (LW: 40-1)

A couple of value picks I like are Dufner at 40-1 and Schwartzel at 50-1. I don't like Spieth at 20-1 or 25-1 or anything below 40-1. That's tough to say because I do like Spieth but not at those odds.

Kaymer dropping from 28-1 to 40-1 is certainly interesting. He's worth some run at that latter number, probably the former as well.

Rory at 10-1 is a good number. That's teetering on good value, if he gets to 12-1 or lower I'd go heavy on him.
