Woodland leads, but not the betting favorite, or second favorite

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. – Gary Woodland may have the 36-hole lead at the U.S. Open, but he’s not topping the betting sheet heading into the third round at Pebble Beach.

That distinction would go to Rory McIlroy, who salvaged a second-round 69 and heads into the weekend in a tie for fourth, four shots behind Woodland. McIlroy opened at 14/1 odds at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook last month, went down to 7/1 after an opening-round 68 and now finds himself as a 4/1 favorite. Justin Rose is second, both on the leaderboard behind Woodland and the betting board behind McIlroy.

Woodland is down to 5/1 after opening at 80/1, followed by two-time defending champ Brooks Koepka. Tiger Woods, who trails by nine shots after two rounds, is listed at 50/1.
