Scheffler was arrested during the competition after the 2nd round. However, his driving-related charges were later dropped. The golfer is getting +325 odds to win the US Open at the Westgate SuperBook.

The player is the shortest crowd favorite to take the major prize home since Tiger Woods. In a pool of 156 talented individuals, Wes Reynolds (VSiN co-host) also sees Scheffler in the top 5.

Reynolds admitted to playing Scheffler -120 top 5 like the co-host did at the Memorial. A top 5 of a heavily packed top 10 is likely the best way to play Scheffler, added Reynolds.
