RBC Heritage Odds: Rory McIlroy the Favorite, Morikawa Down to 25-1 at Harbour Town

The 2020 Charles Schwab Challenge was always going to be memorable, but the golf gods really went above and beyond to welcome the PGA TOUR back after a three-month hiatus due to the pandemic.
The best part? We get to do it all over again this weekend with the RBC Heritage at Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head, S.C.
Daniel Berger, fresh off his dramatic playoff victory at Colonial, opened at +3300 ($10 bet wins $220) for Harbour Town. Berger’s price took an expected drop after the 27-year-old golfer was listed between 50-1 and 65-1 heading into Colonial.
Speaking of price drops, I don’t think we’re going to see Collin Morikawa’s odds back up in the +5000 range anytime soon. The ball-striking wunderkind spent almost all of last weekend near the top of the leaderboard and finished second in the field in Strokes Gained: Tee to Green (T2G). Morikawa has the sixth-lowest odds (+2500) for RBC Heritage.

Xander Schauffele couldn’t hang onto the 54-hole lead at Colonial but his overall body of work over the weekend was quite impressive. Schauffele ended Sunday tied for third at 14-under and was fifth overall in Strokes Gained: T2G for the tournament. Schauffele has opened at 18-1 along with Jon Rahm, who missed the cut at Colonial as the second-favorite.
Rory McIlroy is back atop the odds at +1100. The Northern Irishman never really threatened to win at Colonial but he did put together a spectacular round on Friday to remind everybody just how good he can be when he brings his A-Game with him.
McIlroy was +700 at Colonial so his odds have dipped a little bit week-to-week, but that probably has more to do with how impressive the rest of the field looked than it has to do with Rory’s form.
Bryson DeChambeau left his mark on Colonial in a couple of ways. Much was made about DeChambeau’s bulked-up look, but his game certainly backed up his brawn. DeChambeau finished T3 at 14-under and led the field in Strokes Gained: Off the Tee and Strokes Gained: T2G.
DeChambeau is currently a joint second-favorite with Justin Thomas at +1400 for the RBC Heritage.
There are a few prices that jump right off the page at you every week in golf, but there’s no question that the most noteworthy numbers on this Monday are over at DraftKings where Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson both sit at a tempting 45-1.
Koepka was hanging around the upper-20’s and low-30’s at The PLAYERS and he was around 25-1 for Colonial, so it’s not all that surprising to see Koepka in the mid-tier, but seeing +4500 next to his name will take some getting used to.
