While the dust has barely settled from the U.S. Open, we remain only a few weeks away from the season's next major.

Hours after Dustin Johnson received the trophy at Oakmont, Jeff Sherman of the Westgate Las Vegas Superbook released a full slate of betting odds for the upcoming Open Championship. Not surprisingly, world No. 1 Jason Day leads his list, with Jordan Spieth and former Open champ Rory McIlroy not far behind.

Day's lone top-10 at the Open came last year at St. Andrews, when he finished T-4 and missed a playoff by a shot. His best prior finish came in 2013, when he tied for 30th at Royal St. George's.

Here is a look at the opening odds, which will be updated weekly until July 14 when action gets underway at Royal Troon:

7/1: Jason Day

8/1: Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy

12/1: Dustin Johnson

20/1: Adam Scott

25/1: Rickie Fowler, Justin Rose, Sergio Garcia, Branden Grace

30/1: Danny Willett, Louis Oosthuizen, Henrik Stenson

40/1: Phil Mickelson, Hideki Matsuyama, Brooks Koepka, Shane Lowry

50/1: Bubba Watson, Zach Johnson, Brandt Snedeker, Paul Casey, Lee Westwood, Martin Kaymer, Patrick Reed

60/1: Matt Kuchar, Jim Furyk, Matthew Fitzpatrick, Charl Schwartzel, Marc Leishman

80/1: Justin Thomas, Bryson DeChambeau, Chris Wood, Russell Knox

100/1: Tiger Woods, Byeong-Hun An, Daniel Berger, Kevin Chappell, Jason Dufner, Jimmy Walker, Luke Donald, Graeme McDowell
