It's hard to argue with the game plan of the man who has won four of the past nine majors, but U.S. sportsbooks have cooled a bit on Brooks Koepka's odds of winning a third consecutive U.S. Open this week.

Koepka acknowledged that he did not touch a club after winning the PGA Championship last month until arriving at last week's RBC Canadian Open. He then tied for 50th at the Hamilton Golf & Country Club in Ontario. He never sniffed at contention.

A distinct favorite for Pebble Beach after his two-stroke triumph at Bethpage Black, Koepka has been surpassed by Dustin Johnson as the listed favorite by several sportsbooks. Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy has also nudged ahead in some sportsbooks following his seven-shot victory in Canada.

While those three are co-favorites at +850 by FanDuel, SugarHouse favors Johnson (+700) over McIlroy (+800) and Koepka (+900). William Hill also has Johnson at +700, followed by Koepka (+850) and Jordan Spieth (+1000). Despite his record-setting victory at the Canadian Open, McIlroy is only tied for the third betting favorite by William Hill at +1000.

PointsBet lists Johnson and McIlroy as the co-favorites at +800 -- slightly ahead of Koepka (+850).

Tiger Woods is no worse than +1100 by each of the four books.

Looking for a stab at the riches? SugarHouse is offering +250000 on a trio of players: Connor Arendell, Eric Dietrich and Hayden Shieh.

William Hill is offering some fun matchup prop bets, with McIlroy (-165) favored to finished higher than Woods (+145), and Johnson (-130) expected to out-duel Koepka (+110).
