Trio Of Favorites Headline RBC Heritage Opening Betting Odds

  • The RBC Heritage golf tournament currently has six players with +2000 odds or shorter, nearly all are based on recent performance.
  • Despite Cameron Smith’s status as the hottest player coming into the RBC Heritage tournament, he is not the outright favorite.

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. – Following the first major of the year, many of the top golfers in the world are competing at the RBC Heritage tournament in South Carolina.

World number one, Scottie Scheffler is not participating as he is presumably still celebrating his Master’s victory last week, but the field is still loaded with nine of the top 20 ranked players in the world participating.

Shortest Odds To Win The RBC Heritage

  • Cameron Smith +1400
  • Collin Morikawa +1400
  • Justin Thomas +1400
  • Dustin Johnson +2000
  • Matthew Fitzpatrick +2000
  • Patrick Cantlay +2000

RBC Betting Odds Favoring Top Ten Finishes

Online sportsbooks have placed a clear emphasis on performance since the start of the year, with five of the six golfers with the shortest odds ranking inside the top seven of golfers with top ten rankings.

Golfer Top 10 Finishes Top Ten Finish Rankings Outright Wins
Cameron Smith 5 T-4 2
Collin Morikawa 6 T-2 0
Justin Thomas 6 T-2 0
Dustin Johnson 2 T-32 0
Matthew Fitzpatrick 4 T-7 0
Patrick Cantlay 4 T-7 0

Dustin Johnson stands out amongst the golfers with the six shortest odds to win the RBC Heritage tournament, but his odds are seemingly impacted by his long history of performance. Johnson has ranked inside the top five world golfers at the end of each year since 2016.

What may be more intriguing than Johnson’s odds, is that there is no defined favorite.

Smith has more wins on the PGA Tour this year than anyone not named Scottie Scheffler and has been dominant in all regards.

Cameron Smith struggled on the back nine on Sunday at the Masters, with two bogeys and one triple bogey, but his ability is clear.

Smith has ranked T-111th in average driving distance on the tour this year, which may have even been holding him back. Golf bettors will surely be happy to know that the RBC Heritage course is only 7,121 yards long, which is over 300 yards shorter than the Master’s course Augusta National (7,474 yards).

With driving distance less of an issue for Cameron Smith, it is a wonder that he is not the outright favorite to win the RBC Heritage tournament.
