The Chess Monthly gives 2-0 for Morphy at Rook odds; Sarah's Morphy website says that Michaelis won one of four games (no odds mentioned) against Morphy at age 16, which would be from Aug. 1859 to Aug. 1860? The New York Saturday Press of 6 Oct. 1860 says they played at Knight odds, but the 13 Oct. 1860 issue corrects this to Rook odds.
