Las Vegas didn't waste any time getting the latest odds up for the PGA Championship. One day after Ernie Els hoisted the Claret Jug at Royal Lytham and St Annes, Tiger Woods was installed as the 7-to-1 favorite at the Las Vegas Hotel and Casino to win the final major of the year at Kiawah Island, S.C.

It's no surprise Woods is the betting favorite. Even with his struggles in the final round of the British Open, including a triple-bogey on the par-4 sixth that torpedoed his tournament chance, he's the most recognizable golfer on the planet and always takes in the most action.

As you'd expect, the list of usual suspects are right behind him. Luke Donald and Lee Westwood are currently at 15/1; Rory McIlroy, despite the recent swing issues, is 20/1; Phil Mickelson, British Open runner-up Adam Scott and Jason Dufner are listed at 25/1.

And where is recent major winner Ernie Els? He's listed at 40/1 -- the very same odds he opened at for the British Open. Make of that what you will, friends.

Here's a rundown of Las Vegas Hotel and Casino's top 10 to win the British Open (the rest of the odds, as well as matchups come after the jump):
