After watching Brooks Koepka dominate the PGA Championship this past weekend, it makes sense that he'll enter the U.S. Open as the overwhelming favorite.

Koepka strung together an insurmountable lead for the rest of the field heading into Sunday. Despite suffering a minor setback in the final day, the 29-year-old star sealed the deal to edge out Dustin Johnson at Bethpage Black Course.

Since the start of 2017, Koepka has won four major championships, which includes wins at the U.S. Open in back-to-back years. He'll try to earn his third-straight victory this year at Pebble Beach.

While Koepka has the best odds to win the U.S. Open, he won't be alone on the leaderboard.

Johnson, who finished only two strokes behind Koepka on Sunday, will have the second-best odds for the U.S. Open. Following him will be Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose.

Here is the rest of the field:

Someone on the list to keep an eye on is Jordan Spieth, especially after watching him stay under par for basically the entire PGA Championship.

The U.S. Open begins on June 13 with FS1 and FOX providing coverage.

We'll see if Koepka can continue his dominance at major championships next month.
