PGA Rocket Mortgage Classic Tournament Golf Betting Odds

The 2023 PGA Tour rolls on with the calendar bringing us to the Rocket Mortgage Classic from June 29th to July 2nd at the Detroit Golf Club in Detroit, Michigan. The tournament is a young one, having only been founded in 2019, but it has attracted big names, with guys like Tony Finau and Bryson DeChambeau winning two of the last three. This year no one is the big favorite, but Rickie Fowler is leading the way on the odds tables in the outright winner betting markets on most betting sites and betting apps.

Highlights

  • Last year’s winner, Tony Finau, has the second-shortest odds to win it again
  • Rickie Fowler has the shortest odds to win the tournament
  • Max Homa and Justin Thomas will also be in the field

Rickie Fowler Odds Analysis

Rickie Fowler is coming off one of the more disappointing performances of his career. However, it was also one of his best performances at the same time. Fowler was in a share of the lead going into the final round of the U.S. Open before falling off a cliff on Sunday and finishing in a tie for fifth.

After another solid 12th-place showing last week at the Travelers, the flashy pro seems like he’s really in a groove, and at +1,200 odds, that groove is mighty enticing. 

Collin Morikawa Odds Analysis

While the youngster is the No. 20 ranked golfer right now, he has not been playing like it lately. The lone bright spot was his 14th place finish at the U.S. Open a couple of weeks ago, but other than that, it’s been rough. 

Morikawa can’t seem to get up for it unless it’s a major, not to mention he’s missed the cut or withdrawn in four of his last seven appearances. The 26-year-old has no history with the course either, so we’re not too hot on his +1,300 odds.

Tony Finau Odds Analysis

There aren’t many golfers playing at Tony Finau’s pace right now. He’s No. 14 in the world because he has not missed a cut in 2023, his last miss coming 18 appearances ago. He hasn’t exactly been challenging for wins recently, but he did win the Mexico Open in April. The big reason we like Finau as an outright play at +1,300 is because he’s proven he can win at this tournament at this course, which is exactly what he did last year. 

Justin Thomas Odds Analysis

Though he hasn’t been in great form recently, Justin Thomas is coming off a ninth-place finish at last week’s Travelers Championship. The two-time PGA Champion is always capable of pulling off a surprise, though at +1,400 his odds aren’t quite long enough.

Hideki Matsuyama Odds Analysis

Matsuyama has been one of the most consistent golfers on the Tour since March, earning top 30 finishes in seven of his last eight tournaments, including a 13th place finish last week at the Travelers. If he was up at +2,000 we might consider the Japanese pro, but he hasn’t been challenging for wins enough recently for us to get on board at that number.

Top Canadian Odds Analysis

Golfer

Top Canadian Odds

Adam Hadwin

+162

Taylor Pendrith

+200

Adam Svensson

+225

Michael Gligic

+800

While Adam Svensson is the highest ranked of the four at No. 64 according to ESPN, the 29-year-old has been in shocking form of late. Svensson has missed the cut in three of his last four appearances and four of his last eight. He hasn’t had a top 25 finish since March. His +9,300 outright odds illustrate just how much of a slump Svensson has been in.

Taylor Pendrith, who has outlandish +7,000 outright odds to win the Rocket Mortgage Classic, is ranked No. 127 in the world right now. He’s missed his last two straight cuts as well as five of his last 10. He’s also earned just one top 25 finish since February. The only reason Pendrith has such short odds is because he tied for 2nd at this tournament last year.

Apart from that last tidbit, bettors should feel pretty good about laying something down on Adam Hadwin to finish atop this field of Canucks. He’s ranked 71st in the world right now and has racked up seven top 25 finishes this year, including 12th at the Canadian Open a few weeks ago. He wasn’t great at the U.S. Open, but Hadwin is not the kind of guy to have two bad tournaments in a row, so his +162 odds look mighty appealing.
