Notes:
Spinrad gives 2-0 for Morphy without mention of odds, from the Brooklyn Eagle, 17 June 1859, but that issue does say that Morphy gave Knight odds, as does the Chess Monthly of July 1859 (p.228); Lawson and Sarah's Morphy website give 2-0 for Morphy at Knight odds, from Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper of 25 June 1859.
