This week, there’s $1,000 up for grabs in the Yahoo Fantasy Slate contest. All you have to do is answer 10 questions related to the various sports going on this week. This week’s contest features questions on the U.S. Open, the NBA playoffs, the Euro 2020 tournament, and the NHL playoffs. And the best part? It’s completely FREE to play.
Round 1 of the U.S. Open is done — blame a 90-minute marine layer delay for pushing the end of the round into Friday morning — but sports books already know enough to adjust the lines for tournament favorites, sometimes severely. All lines courtesy BetMGM.
Jon Rahm finished his round at -2, good enough to nearly halve his odds of winning, from +900 pre-tournament to +550 now (bet $100 to win $550). Right behind him, vaulting multiple pre-tournament contenders, sits Louis Oosthuizen at +750. Co-leader Oosthuizen has finished in second at every major, and solo third at the U.S. Open last year; could this be the year he gets it done?
If it's a major, Brooks Koepka must be in the hunt, and that means his odds have also dropped to +750 from a pre-tournament +1600 after a first-round two-under 69. Xander Schauffele, who also shot 69, has seen his odds fall from +1800 to +1000, the variances likely due to Koepka's experience closing the deal.
Also seeing nice bumps: Rory McIlroy (+1400) and Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama (+1600). Co-leader Russell Henley isn't getting a whole lot of love at +3300, but another day at or near the lead will change that.
