Last year things didn't go as planned for Dustin Johnson at the 3M Open.

Johnson was in the midst of a funk last summer, coming off rounds of 80-80 at the Memorial. He opened with another clunker at TPC Twin Cities, carding a 78, then promptly withdrew citing a back injury. Weeks later he set all sorts of records en route to winning The Northern Trust, sparking a tear that also netted him a green jacket.

This week DJ is back in Minnesota for the third installment of the tournament, and he returns as the clear betting favorite. Johnson is listed at +700 odds this week on the heels of his T-8 finish at The Open, just ahead of perennial bridesmaid Louis Oosthuizen. The South African couldn't get it done Sunday in England, adding another major near-miss to his tally, and he's second on the board this week as he looks to win in the U.S. for the first time.

American Ryder Cup hopefuls Tony Finau and Patrick Reed are next in line, while past 3M champs Matthew Wolff and Michael Thompson are listed at +3300 and +9000, respectively. Here's a look at some of the other notable odds this week in the Land of 10,000 Lakes:
