U.S. Open Odds 2012: Jim Furyk, Graeme McDowell Enter Final Day As Favorites

Sunday will mark the final day of the 2012 U.S. Open. It will also mark the first day in a week that Tiger Woods has not been the odds-on favorite to win his fourth career title at the difficult Grand Slam event. Woods shot a 5-over for the day on Saturday and finished his third round five strokes off the lead, after entering the day in a tie for first place.

The new betting favorites to take home the title are Jim Furyk and Graeme McDowell, who enter Sunday's final round atop the leaderboard in a tie for first place at 1-under. The notoriously difficult Olympic Club course in San Francisco has gotten no easier over the past three days and anything can happen in the championship round.

Here are the final odds to win the 2012 U.S. Open:

Jim Furyk 9/4
Graeme McDowell 5/2
Lee Westwood 6/1
Tiger Woods 12/1
Fredrik Jacobson 12/1
Ernie Els 15/1
Nicolas Colsaerts 20/1
Jason Dufner 25/1
Webb Simpson 25/1
Blake Adams 40/1
John Senden 50/1
Matt Kuchar 50/1
Martin Kaymer 50/1
Kevin Chappell 80/1
Retief Goosen 80/1
John Peterson 100/1
Beau Hossler 100/1
Justin Rose 100/1
Sergio Garcia 100/1
Field (all others) 15/1
