RBC Heritage Betting Odds Preview
Following a successful return to the course last week after a three-month hiatus, the PGA season continues this week with another event that will be lacking spectators, when the RBC Heritage tees off at Harbour Town Golf Links.
Last week in the Charles Schwab Challenge, Daniel Berger overcame Collin Morikawa in a playoff to record his third career PGA win. Berger will go for another win at Harbour Town this week as a +3300 underdog at Bovada Sportsbook. Morikawa is even getting better odds at +2500.
Berger a +3300 underdog at RBC Heritage
The tournament favorite at Bovada is Rory McIlroy at +1200. McIlroy was also the favorite last week and was in contention heading into Sunday before a dreadful final round caused him to finish well back tied for 32nd place. That snapped McIlroy’s streak of seven straight top-five finishes.
Following McIlroy on the Bovada odds is the trio of Bryson DeChambeau, Jon Rahm and Justin Thomas, all at +1400. DeChambeau came up just short last week, finishing tied for third place, one shot back of Berger. Rahm had a rough return and missed the cut after shooting even par after two rounds, while Thomas tied for 10th place.
Also tying for third last week along with DeChambeau were Jason Kokrak, Justin Rose and Xander Schauffele. Schauffele is listed at +2200 this week, Rose is a +2800 underdog and Kokrak is a +6600 long shot.
Weekley in 2007-08 was last repeat winner
The defending champion of the RBC Heritage is C.T. Pan. He posted his first PGA Tour win at Harbour Town last year by shooting 12 under par. If Pan can become the first player to go back to back at the RBC Heritage since Boo Weekley in 2007-08, he’ll pay well as a +20000 underdog.
Other former winners of the RBC Heritage who will be in this week’s field include Matt Kuchar (+4000), Branden Grace (+5000), Brandt Snedeker (+8000), two-time winner Jim Furyk (+12500), Graeme McDowell (+15000) and Wesley Bryan (+30000).
Donald could be worth look as dark horse
One dark horse who may be worth a look for bettors this week is Luke Donald at +15000. Donald has never won the RBC Heritage, but he’s come close several times, finishing either second or tied for second five times.
