The 2021 US Open has brought no shortage of excitement, and it's also had its fair share of surprises.

Through three rounds, we have a three-way tie for first place, and none of those three are golfers who many were expecting to be in contention this week.

Russell Henley has been leading since Round 1, and he finished even in Round 3 to maintain a score of 5-under for the tournament. Louis Oosthuizen got to 5-under with a -1 on Saturday, and Canadian Mackenzie Hughes surged by going 3-under in the third round.

The US Open odds on FanDuel Sportsbook are taking Oosthuizen's success more seriously than the other two's, and he is the outright favorite to win the US Open, with odds of +380.

Even though nobody else in the tournament is better than 3-under heading into Sunday, Henley (+700) and Hughes (+900) rank fourth and fifth, respectively, in the odds.

Ahead of them are Bryson DeChambeau and Rory McIlroy, who are tied for second at +500 while sitting two strokes back from the lead.

Here's a look at the top 15 golfers in the odds to win the US Open.
