Less than one week after Patrick Reed was fitted with his first green jacket following his win at The Masters, the PGA Tour heads north for its next stop of the season. Dustin Johnson will headline the RBC Heritage once again from the Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. D.J. is coming off a top-10 finish at The Masters and will be an obvious sports betting favorite when he tees off this week. While there is a sharp contrast between the field we will see this week compared to last week at Augusta National, there are still plenty of intriguing contenders that could present legitimate challenges versus Johnson. Here is a look at some of the best bets on the board for this week’s RBC Heritage with the odds provided by BetDSI Sportsbook.
Event: RBC Heritage
Date: April 12th-15th
Location: Harbour Town Golf Links, Hilton Head Island, South Carolina
Past Five Winners
2017: Wesley Bryan
2016: Branden Grace
2015: Jim Furyk
2014: Matt Kuchar
2013: Graeme McDowell
Dustin Johnson +800
Power off the tee hasn’t been a relevant factor over the years at Harbour Town Golf Links, which means D.J.’s biggest strength is somewhat nullified at this course. However, Johnson is still one of the best golfers in the world and he has the potential to absolutely dominate at this week’s RBC Heritage. +800 odds is pretty good value for the sports betting favorite to win this event so Johnson is worth putting some money on this week.
Paul Casey +1200
It might be a case of buyer beware when it comes to Casey after he complained about a hip injury last week. However, there is no doubt about his game when healthy and his potential to perform at a high level as long as he is good to go on Thursday. Casey has a solid course record and he is in decent form after registering a win last month. Any potential issues with the hip might offer cause for pause but Casey should still be a solid pick at this week’s RBC Heritage.
Matt Kuchar +1600
Kuchar didn’t exactly shine at The Masters but he placed in the top-10 at the Houston Open and he has the potential to deliver another strong outing at this week’s RBC Heritage. At +1600 odds, there is decent value putting some money down on Kuchar to contend in South Carolina this week.
Marc Leishman +2200
Leishman is an interesting option as well this week because of his price tag and his strong play of late. The 34-year-old followed up a top-10 finish at the Arnold Palmer with another at The Masters so he should be confident heading in to this tournament. At +2200 odds, Leishman is also worth a long look as a sports betting option to contend for the outright win.
Webb Simpson +3300
Simpson is a former Harbour Town runner-up that is coming off a career-best round at The Masters after firing a 67 there on Sunday. Simpson has been strong on the greens of late, which is one of the biggest factors for success at an event like the RBC Heritage. While he might not win, Simpson should be in the mix as a legitimate top-10 contender this week.
Adam Hadwin +4000
One name to consider as a possible sleeper pick this week is Hadwin. The Canadian has the perfect game to excel at a tournament like this and he will be looking to build off last year’s result here after he placed 22nd. Hadwin is coming off an excellent outing at The Masters and if he can carry over the confidence he exhibited at that event he could be a very intriguing option this week. Hadwin’s upside and his +4000 price tag makes him a solid sleeper pick this week.
Ollie Schniederjans +4000
Speaking of sleeper picks this week, Schniederjans also offers excellent value at the same price as Hadwin. Schniederjans ranks inside the top-50 for approach shots, around-the-green and putting this year and those numbers will be important at Harbour Town this week. Schniederjans and Hadwin are both excellent value plays at identical +4000 price tags.
Wesley Bryan +15000
While he will be in tough to repeat here this year, it’s somewhat surprising to see the defending RBC Heritage winner available at +15000 odds to win outright. Bryan’s skill set translates well at a course like Harbour Town so it’s impossible to completely overlook him. While he is definitely a long shot to win here again, it might be worth it to sprinkle a small amount of money down on the defending tournament champion hoping that he can rediscover the magic he showed last year and deliver a potentially massive payday to anybody that backs him.
