2012 U.S. Open Golf Odds: Tiger Woods Remains Favorite, Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy, Bubba Watson Plummet

The first day of the U.S. Open provided a lot of movement not only in the expected story lines but also in the odds for who was favored to win it all, with one major exception. Tiger Woods is still at the top of the list comfortably despite not leading the scores going into the second day -- he is tied for second overall. Bovada's latest odds have him at the top with 9/4 odds to take the win.

Phil Mickelson, defending champion Rory McIlroy and Bubba Watson suffered some of the biggest drops in the rankings, going +6, +7 and +8 respectively. As a result, all of them have fallen hard in the odds and none have a better than 100/1 shot to win it as of right now.

Tiger Woods 9/4
Justin Rose 8/1
