Despite struggles at U.S. Open, Rickie Fowler the favorite at Congressional

Despite a poor showing at last week’s U.S. Open and a streak of three straight missed cuts, Rickie Fowler comes in to this week’s Quicken Loans National at Congressional Country Club as the overall favorite.

Bovada.lv installed Fowler (+1,400) with the best odds of winning the tournament, just ahead of Patrick Reed and Jim Furyk (both at +1,800). Despite the recent rut, Fowler ranks as the biggest name in the field as he is immensely popular on tour, especially with younger fans.

Reed also struggled at Oakmont last week, where as the veteran Furyk excelled. Powered by a 66 on the final day of the tournament, Furyk finished tied for second at the U.S. Open. 

After the top three, Gary Woodland, Marc Leishman and Justin Thomas all have +2800 odds to win the tournament.

Other notable names: Ernie Els +15,000, Virginia Tech alum Brendon De Jonge +20,000, Davis Love III +20,000, Smylie Kaufman +9,000, Tony Finau +5,000 and Bryson DeChambeau at +3,500.
