From Jack Nicklaus to Michael Greller, those around the game are confident Jordan Spieth will bounce back from his Masters heartbreak. That includes Las Vegas.

The wise men in the desert rolled out odds for the 2016 U.S. Open, and Spieth, the defending champion, is listed as the favorite at 7-1.

Following the two-time major winner are Rory McIlroy and Jason Day, both marked at 8-1. Masters winner Danny Willett, who was listed as high as 70-1 to win the green jacket, saw his Vegas odds improve for the U.S. Open at 30-1.

Other notables include Dustin Johnson (18-1), Justin Rose and Rickie Fowler (both 20-1), Adam Scott (22-1) and Bubba Watson (28-1).

The 2016 U.S. Open begins on June 16 at Oakmont Country Club.
