- Our staff breaks down their favorite picks to win the Rocket Mortgage Classic, which starts Thursday.
- Find out why they like Kevin Na (+4000), Brandt Snedeker (+4500) and Adam Hadwin (+7000).
The PGA TOUR is in Detroit this week for the 2020 Rocket Mortgage Classic and the betting board is an absolute humdinger.
After three straight extraordinary fields plenty of star players are understandably taking this week off and that has opened the door for Bryson DeChambeau to vault to the top of the odds as a +650 ($10 bet wins $65) favorite.
We’re all scared that this could be The Bryson Week, but none of our GolfBet analysts are paying the DeCheambeau Tax at Detroit Golf Club.
Here are our favorite outright bets for the 2020 Rocket Mortgage Classic:

Brandt Snedeker (+4500)
Considering the top four finishers on last year’s inaugural Rocket Mortgage leaderboard ranked an average of 397th in the world, I can’t bring myself to take any chalk this week. In fact, I won’t bet anyone with odds better than 40/1, but I can’t pass the value here on Sneds.
He’s won on three different Donald Ross-designed courses in his career and finished top-10 at three others, including last year’s top-five here at Detroit GC.
That’s an obvious trend which I could certainly see continuing this week.
Kevin Na (+4000)
Na is coming off a fifth-place finish at the Travelers last week and I think he should fit in well here if this year’s Rocket Mortgage plays similar to the inaugural event in 2019.
Last year’s leaderboard featured plenty of shorter hitters with solid iron games and good putters and Na checks those boxes.
I like Na’s chances to contend with most of the big names sitting this week out.
Adam Hadwin +7000
I love Bryson, he’s the No. 1 golfer in my model by quite a bit, but man I can’t pay 6/1 on a golfer in a PGA TOUR field. He’d have to be playing against 150 me’s to warrant that.
And that’s the rub with the whole field: A lot of guys are inflated because of the field, which means the very top of the board is going to be overvalued while the mid and lower-tier are undervalued because they weren’t adjusted enough.
I like Hadwin in general and especially at this course and this price. He’s been fine the last couple of weeks but hasn’t had the high-end finishes almost solely because of the short game, which should turn around. The ball-striking has been as excellent as ever for the Canadian. He has one of the better all-around games in the field but is priced as a 1-percenter. I’ll take it.
